9 Proven Ways To
Intimacy In A
Long Distance Relationship
- by Chung

Intimacy is a key survival ingredient in a long
distance relationship. Without that feeling of
connectedness, doubts and dissatisfaction start to
emerge and can eventually lead to serious problems.
Due to this, it's even more important for couples in
long distance relationships to find ways of keeping
that feeling of togetherness.
The main idea behind these ideas below is to help
you and your partner feel more involved in each
other's daily lives. You may not actually be there,
but you can definitely make them feel like you're a
part of what's going on in their lives.
1. Voice Memos
Nothing can bridge the gap like the sound of your
partner's voice. Voice memos are one of the easiest
and cost effective ways to achieve this. You can
send your partner a voice memo key chain with the
words "I love you" on it. You can get a voice memo
photo frame and record "thinking of you always" on
it. You can get a personal recorder and just say
random thoughts about your day to your partner and
send it to them at the end of the week. Many stuffed
animal companies offer voice recordings inside of
the toy. You could say different recordings such as,
good night, sweet dreams, good morning, I love you,
and so on.
2. Start Blogging!
Chances are you're pretty Internet savvy if you
are in a long distance relationship. If you are,
sign up for a free blog somewhere and send your
partner the username and password. Use this tool as
a way to frequently communicate with each other
about your daily life and thoughts. If you don't
have access to a blog, write a little something
about your day each night. At the end of the week,
mail your partner the letters.
3. Web Cam Dates
When you're missing your partner's touch, a web
cam date can be the closest remedy available.
Frequently arrange a set time for these dates. Take
turns planning on what you'll talk about or do. Some
couples have used these as an opportunity to share a
romantic candlelit dinner, watch a movie together or
even play games online.
4. Keep a "LOVE" plant
A plant is often referenced as a symbol of a
growing relationship. Use this symbol in your
romance by sending each other a plant to take care
of. As the plant grows, press leaves or flowers to
send to each other in your mailings. When the long
distance aspect of your relationship ends, plant
them side by side at your new dwelling.
