For two great resources to help you do this really well during the next three months, check out our special bundle offer…
When you’re in a long distance relationship, finding interesting ways to “do” new things together can be difficult.
It can feel a bit forced to “schedule” a long distance date night.
It can feel awkward to try something that seems silly or cheesy, or to ask your partner to do something that you’re not sure they’ll enjoy.
Take photos and send them text messages throughout the day letting them know what you’re doing.
Have them do the same where they live, and then share your photos and discuss your outings. Channel that angst into writing something (many things) that will remind your loved one exactly love and miss them.
When you share this playlist with your loved one you might touch their own emotions (or at least tickle their funny bone).
There are thousands of games you could play together online. You can find all sorts of virtual reality games at Play Free Online Games. Giving and receiving presents can help create a shared bond and tangible reminders of love and happiness.
Now and then, it’s healthy and inspiring to create a bucket list–a list of experiences you want to have and things you want to accomplish in life.
You and your partner can create seperate bucket lists and compare (that’s good for hours of interesting conversation).
If you’re looking for more meaningful alternatives and you haven’t already completed the VIA Signature Strengths Survey on the Authentic Happiness website, it’s worth doing.
Take a look at this piece on character strengths for more on that.
