Here’s to the couples who are thousands of miles away from eachother. Here’s to falling asleep on skype everynight. Here’s to all the people who say that it’s “not a real relationship”. Here’s to loving him no matter how far away he is. Here’s to airport reunions. Here’s to care packages and love letters. Here’s to saying “fuck the distance” because you can’t stand it anymore. Here’s to busting out in tears because you miss eachother. Here’s to dreaming about the future.
Fun Ideas for LDR’s with Skype… By: ALolitasLife
Sometimes we have no choice but to be stuck hundreds of miles apart from the person we want most to be in our arms. I’ve had a couple disagreeable anon’s say I have no experience with dealing with Long Distance Relationships… perhaps those Anons forgot that I’m married to the Active Duty Military (marry a sailor, marry the whole damn Navy). So yes, I do have quite a bit of experience with LDRs…unfortunately. In fact, the first 5 years of my marriage (and that included two births of our children) was done mostly…alone.
So here’s how to make something so hard…just a little easier with Skype:
Fun Skype Ideas for LDRs:
-Bake a cake together. First discuss a specific cake you’d both like to make. Don’t have something to Celebrate? Call is “Date Night Cooking Class”. Make a shopping list together and go to the store (if you can call while shopping and laugh about how you can’t find a damn thing… do so). Bring home your baking supplies and Video call and cook it together. Go through every step at the same time and once the cake is done turn off the cam. Sure you can still voice but decorate the cake someway special just for them! Then when you’re both done, share and eat!!
-Get several board games that you both have. Things like Sorry, Monopoly, and Life are perfect. Play together and move each other’s pieces. (cheat…no don’t cheat I was kidding!)
-Netflix is your Friend! Start a movie together and watch it. Both make some Popcorn and eat it together.
- Get a little tipsy together (hell get drunk together if you wanna… just be safe) Make the same drinks to make it a little more like you’re together. Hey, you can even play a drinking game like watching the same movie with a Mustache cut out pasted to the screen… ever time someone comes into the correct spot on the screen and they’re Stache’d… Drink!
- Online! Pictionary! Seriously, it’s fun.
- I’m sure most of you already do but… online games you can play together are awesome!
-Sleep together (Ew no I’m not talking about phone sex you pervs… but do that too) Open Skype, tuck each other in… and go to sleep and wake together… it’s actually VERY romantic if you ask me.
I know it’s not much but these are just a few ideas I hope help spark some more for you! Distance is painful, but time together (even apart) is priceless… enjoy it.
