How To Spend Valentine’s Day On An LDR

Getting in a long distance relationship is not a joke. Two people have to both agree if they are able to do it together and always having a choice should always be a topic that both parties have to discuss. Life changing moments happen to us everyday and having an understanding between two people despite the distance is truly what makes this type of setup worth it. Here are a few things you can do this V-day if your SO is not with you!

Get The Best Internet

You’ll thank us later for this! Seeing a lot of couples having the chance to spend this day together might be crushing for you and your SO.

This is the best kept secret of every successful LDR relationship.

It’s true when they say this strategy is old but gold! Spending precious communication time with your SO is what anyone truly needs on the day everyone celebrates love. Call them up and talk about the mundane things and you’ll sure put a smile on their face. Time also counts as effort and setting this aside makes for a complete valentine’s day for your special one!

• Die Zockerin in mir • . Ja ich bin ein Gamergirl, ich liebe die animierte Welt von #nintendo , #worldofwarcraft , #animes und #elfen! . Früher durfte ich oft auf der Super Nintendo von meinem Bruder spielen, Mario Kart, Dongkey Kong und Street Fighter waren meine absoluten Lieblingsspiele! 🧡 Irgendwann bekam ich dann die #n64 und spielte #zeldaocarinaoftime – ich bin verliebt in dieses Spiel! 🧝🏻‍♂️🧝🏻‍♀️ Aber auf Pokémon Stadium, Super Mario und Diddy Kong Racing habe ich gezockt- steh noch heute mega auf diese Spiele! Es ist ein Teil meiner Kindheit/ Teeniezeit. #kindderneunziger Klar hab ich auch sehr viel draußen gespielt und noch andere Interessen gehabt, trotzdem ist das Zocken immer ein Teil von mir gewesen und geblieben. . Hast du auch gezockt? Spielst du heute noch, wenn ja was – das würde mich wirklich mal interessieren? 👾🎮 .

Have a feeling of being in the arcade with your love and play video games together online. Make sure to log in at the same time and participate in one game. Tag team is always the best when trying to beat opponents around the world. If you are the gamer kind, this is a sweet treat you’ll remember for sure. It’s as if you’re just beside each other!


Get Them A V-day Care Pack

Always make your presence felt! The key to successful LDRs are honestly the moments when you show your partner that you care or are thinking about them! Gifts are the easiest way to get this message across. Get them a e-gift certificate to their favourite restaurant or send them a box of your letters, some tissues for crying, and your favourite romantic movie. Pull their heartstrings even from miles away!


Experience Something Together Online

Everything is literally online now! Attend a yoga class or workout and have that video chat on. It’s just as if you both are working out together. The distance won’t really matter because you are experiencing the same thing and you won’t even have to worry about dinner reservations. You can also have a watch party and see the same movie or series online!


Surprise Them With A Visit 

When you have the budget and schedule for it, surprising them will really be a game changer. Show up at their doorstep with flowers and cute treats and you’ll get all the loving your special one can give. 


Being on an LDR is not so bad especially when you and your partner are dedicated! What’s your LDR Valentine’s date idea? Let us know in the comments below!
