My boyfriend and I have had a long distance relationship on and off for the past 5 years. He lives in Florida and I live in Pennsylvania. It was always hard to feel close to each other so what we started doing was planning a dinner and a movie together.We would both make the same thing for dinner (even if it was something easy like hamburgers and fries) and we would either rent the same movie or find something good on TV. We’d eat and watch the movie while on the phone with each other and then for the dance we’d agree on a song that we’d love to dance to and we’d play it at the same time and imagine we were dancing together.We also made use of the internet by using webcams so we could dress up and see what the other person would look like on a real date. We’d also use the webcam to take pictures of our homes so that we could feel closer to each other, and I even set up a candlelight dinner for two a few times and let him see it on the webcam.There are lots of ways to feel close to another person, even if they’re literally a thousand miles away. My boyfriend is planning on moving up here by the end of the month, so I guess our ideas worked!
