How to Spend Valentine's Day in a Long Distance Relationship

Posted -

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, lots of couples will be planning cute, romantic dates to celebrate the holiday. On the other hand, some couples will not be able to see each other due to distance and busy schedules. If you are spending Valentine’s Day without your boyfriend or girlfriend, I have some tips to make your day just as meaningful as it would be if you were together.

It’s okay to text your partner throughout the day, but consider doing something more special since you can’t be with them for Valentine’s Day. Try sending them a gift with a card or handwritten letter. Taking the time to purchase a thoughtful gift and write a letter is more personal and lets your significant other know you truly miss them and are thinking about them.

In addition, set aside time to FaceTime or Skype your boyfriend or girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. Consider this a virtual date since you can’t actually be face-to-face. Refrain from multitasking and don’t let anything distract you so you can have a good conversation with them.

Finally, if you can’t pop up and surprise your boyfriend or girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, surprise them by telling them the next time you will visit. This will give you both something to look forward to and end your Valentine’s Day on a positive note.

So don’t be in a slump on Valentine’s Day because you won’t see your significant other. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and when you see them again you can plan a romantic date to make up for not being together on Valentine’s Day.
