Summer is here and everybody is gearing with their partners to hit the outdoors. But what about an LDR (long-distance relationship) couple? How do they go through summer when they are apart? It’s not going to be easy, but there are ways for an LDR couple to enjoy summer together despite the miles.
Stay In Love This Summer Despite Being An LDR Couple
Don’t be jealous of other couples just because they can enjoy the summer together – go out, go camping or swimming. In your own way, an LDR couple can enjoy the summer as well and stay even more in love with each other in the following ways:
1. Send letters and postcards.
While we already live in the digital age, a DM (direct message) with lots of emoticons is nothing compared to a hand-written letter. Try to mail each other at least once a week. You may also include postcards of the spots where you go. It will let your partner know that you are thinking of him or her while you are out.
2. Set up video chat dates.
Video chat dates would be the nearest thing to getting connected with your loved one from far away. It would be doubly trickier if you live in different time zones. So the best thing to do is to set up a date and time and honor it. If you can do it daily, so much the better. A scheduled chat date makes you both more relaxed. You are not in a hurry and you are not caught in a compromising situation.
3. Constantly wear a memento from your love.
If your lover has given you a trinket, wear it always to remind you of the person. Also, let your partner know that you are wearing that trinket always because it will warm the heart of the giver.
4. Agree to wear a couple’s shirt on the same day.
Even if you are far away from each other, nothing can stop you from doing synchronizing things that only the two of you know about. Wear a couple’s shirt and take photos. You may want to upload them on social media or you can just share it between yourselves. It doesn’t matter. After all, you are doing this for each other and not for others to see.
5. If possible, schedule a weekend together.
If you do not live too far away, you may want to schedule a long weekend together. It would still be great to be able to spend time together in real time, even just once during the summer.
