Although you can’t be with your loved one in person, you can always meet with them virtually. Explore fantasy worlds, take on challenges, or compete as rivals. You don’t need a fancy console or gadget either. Playing games will naturally bring you closer to each other.
Surprise Them with Gifts

Gifts don’t have to be expensive, they just have to be thoughtful. Send him or her a postcard, a scented candle or their favorite pint of ice cream to make them feel loved. Sending a gift to your long distance friend, family, or lover can make your presence feel more tangible. It helps break the monotony of online interactions.

Sharing a meal through Zoom is nice, but why not take it a step further by cooking together? Choose a simple recipe so everyone has access to ingredients. Immersive, hands-on experiences can help you forget about the distance.

Suffering through a workout together is a surefire way to bond. Once the training session is over, enjoy the feel good hormones. The endorphins will help you associate positive feelings to exercise AND your long distance relationship!
Start a Book Club
It can be challenging to find common ground when you’re always apart. Why not start a book club? Reading the same book in your spare time will help remind you of your loved one. You’ll feel connected even when you’re speaking to each other. Plus, you’ll have more things to talk about in your next online hangout!
We hope these ideas can help bridge the gap for people in long distance relationships!
