From Our Readers: How Long Distance Couples Celebrate the Love Month
I have been in a long distance relationship for nine months now. And believe it or not, surviving is like riding a rollercoaster without a seatbelt on. But the thrill is giving me reasons to hold on tight until I reached the highest peak with the special person who's giving me too much words to use to not let the fun pass away.
I never really saw myself writing this, but when I heard about my friends' upcoming dates with their partners, I thought, "I wish we could do that, too." That thought is really making my heart ache. Sure, we already know how to make each other feel like we're never apart but months like this just makes things extra hard. Worry not, though. Here are a few things you can do that will make your Valentine's Day perfect even if you're miles apart from the person you love.
- Watch a movie at the same time.
I've had a Harry Potter marathon last summer and did it with him. It is never too hard. You just have to hit the play button at the same time. And make sure you're picking the right movie that suits both of your interests.
- Enjoy a meal together in front of the camera.
Enjoy your meal in front of the camera while you're with your bae. You will have fun on this one because both of you can eat as much as you can without thinking about the bill that you will have after a happy tummy. And also, the fact that you can see what you're both eating will make you feel like they're actually there.
- Sing a song for each other.
I know he already knows what you like when it comes to music. Why not be his videoke queen and have your one of a kind concert? I guess, nothing's crazier than having fun with a certain song in front of your love.
- Play an online game together.
There are a lot of games that you can play together online. If you want to go easy on each other, there's Draw and Guess game. Or you can play the famous Zynga Poker where you can have each other's backs or if you're brave enough, it can be one's tower of Poker chips. Just make sure you don't fight after the game.
- Take a picture together.
Think this is impossible? Nah. If you know how to screenshot or printscreen, things will be beyond sweet. You just have to count to three, goof around, and have that photo that you can laugh about at 2AM. It doesn't matter if it's Instagrammable or not. What matters is that sweetness that you both want.
I know this is not as realistic as what your friends have on Valentine's Day. But you know what? The fact that you find ways to see your special someone's smile is more than the flowers and sweets that you can give and receive.
