Long Distance Romance Tips

Long Distance Romance Tips

Personalized Puzzle

Write a letter or find a picture of something you two have shared. Paste the letter/picture to a piece of thin cardboard or heavy paper. Cut it into puzzle pieces. Send your long distance love the pieces in the mail. – Submitted by David

Handmade Calendar

Have someone take pictures of you, develop them, and make a calendar. The way I did it was to get card paper and glue a rose border on each piece. I then color copied and enlarged the pictures and pasted them on the paper. Then I printed out boxes on the computer for the days and decorated each week (or month). I then tied them all together with ribbon and sent it to him in the mail as a countdown for when he moved here. He loved it. He got to see me everyday, and the fact that it took so much time and effort really touched him. – Submitted by Renee M.

Scented Letters

When I was in a long distance relationship I used to send my boyfriend letters sprayed with my perfume. I would also soak pieces of material with my perfume because it lasted longer than the perfume on my letters. He loved it! – Submitted by Chelsea

Care Packages

Send a romantic care package. Includes items such as some of his favorite candy, a magazine she likes, a rock or shell you picked up on a walk.  Tell your sweetie that you wish they’d been with you when you were shopping, or on your walk because you couldn’t stop thinking about them. It’s a great way to let your love know you’re thinking about them. – Submitted by Leah

Send Flowers

Find a florist near where she lives and have flowers delivered on a day you know she’ll be home. Try to avoid telling her ahead of time, it makes a nice surprise. Be sure to tell the florist what you want written on the little card, and they’ll write it for you. – Submitted H.A.F

Book of Memories

I saved every email my boyfriend and I sent each other since the day we met. On our one year anniversary I printed them all out and separated them by month. For every month, I made a cover page that summarized all of the important and sentimental things we did that month. I also included pictures of us that we took during these times. I had all of the pages bound into a hard-covered book, and had “Forever Love” inscribed on the cover. It was really cool to be able to go through our emails and remember all of the thoughts and feelings we were experiencing day by day, and we could actually see our love growing stronger each day. It was almost like reading a fairy-tale. I’m already working on next year’s book. – Submitted by Michelle
