Having fun is an essential part of any satisfying relationship – when partners include a level of playfulness in their togetherness, they are better able to weather the storms down the line. And nowhere is true than in a long distance relationship – writing and calling can get monotonous and the long absences can act as a genuine source of insecurity. so if you are trying to make things work across the miles, make use of these fun ways to surprise your beloved which are sure to bring in a whiff of fresh air into your long distance relationship and keep the embers of love glowing.
Send him/her a text message
Long distance relationships are often believed to be among the most difficult to sustain. Couples away from each other not only have to cope with loneliness but also the prospect of a love whose romantic flame may be burning low at times. Modern technology however, has made it much easier to be in touch with a loved one even when he/she is far away. And text messages are one of the best ways to do this. So surprise your beloved on an ordinary working day with a text message which can vary from funny like As I walked out of my house today, I realized that I was missing something. And that something was you, to tender like Loving you is like breathing – so effortless, so natural. And so essential to life. You can even think of something inspirational so that your partner can look forward to the time you will be together again, Like the days of our togetherness that melted like a dream/These days of separation too shall pass.
Think of a thoughtful gift
gifting in a long distance relationship is no longer the challenge it used to be earlier – these days a whole of lot of stuff like flowers and cakes to even concert tickets and magazine subscriptions can be bought or booked online and delivered to the recipient living in another city. however in order to make your gift to your long distance lover truly a surprise, consider sending something that cannot be bought from an online retailer. Put together a CD containing all those romantic songs you both love best and then send it to your partner. He/she will not only be glad to be gifted with their favorite music but thrilled to receive something to remind them of you. alternately if you have a flair for creative work, put together a Long Distance Relationship workbook. Decorate a scrapbook with photos, love letters, movie tickets, restaurant bills and any other evidence from the times you have spent together. If your partner has a sentimental streak, set aside a column or few pages where they can make their own entries.
Dedicate a song to him/her
One of the nicest ways to let your partner know that you have been thinking of them is by dedicating a song to them on their favorite radio music show. This gesture of love will not only catch your beloved off guard but melt their heart on hearing the song that has been requested to play for them her by their lover. The only catch is making sure he/she has the radio on when the show is on air. you can for instance give your partner a call when the show starts and casually mention that the radio station is playing some lovely songs and he/she might turn it on. Eventually this can go on to make your very special love-song and symbolize the unique thing you share with each other.
Write a love poem for him
While emails and text messages are all very well for daily communication, every once in a while it would be good to express your love in a special way and what can be better for this purpose than poetry. Put down your emotions in a romantic poem for your long distance partner. He/she will be surprised and touched to receive a message that you have composed yourself. Don’t worry if the poem doesn’t rhyme – it should be just romantic and sincere.
Put up an advertisement
A wonderful way of planning a surprise for your partner is to publish a romantic message in the personal column of whatever newspaper your partner subscribes to. Make your message extra special by including a photo of you together or quoting a few lines from your partner’s favorite love poem or love song. Your beloved will not only be ecstatic at receiving your mushy message but also feel secretly flattered at your public avowal of love.
If it is a special occasion like your anniversary or Valentine’s Day and you wish to surprise him/her, then send something naughty as a present. Lacy lingerie will set your wife or girlfriend’s heart racing while a photo showing you both having a torrid time is sure to remind your boyfriend or husband of how good it feels to be together. Your partner will not only be hugely pleased at the evidence of your passion but who knows may even hop on the next flight to your city.
Send a party
So what if you cannot be with your partner at his or her birthday party? Do the next best thing and send him or her a party. Buy streamers, party hats, kazoos and a candy-filled piñata and pack them all in a box. Then send it to your partner and he or she is bound to be pleasantly surprised at receiving your truly wacky present. Not to mention your partner’s pals who are sure to envy him or her for having such an understanding and fun-loving lover.
Finally what can be a better surprise to a long distance love than you in person? If you are not afraid to do a little co-coordinating, plan a secret trip to your partner’s place. This will of course require flight bookings and hotel reservations, not to mention rescheduling your own work. And the trickiest part is bound to ensure that he/she is present at the venue – home or workplace – where you intend to meet him/her. However the look of happy incredulity in your beloved’s eyes when you appear out of the blue is definitely going to be worth all the planning and plotting you may have gone through to this end.
