Long Distance Relationship Tips
When your Husband Travels Frequently
Engaging in a long-distance relationship is very challenging! To be up to it, take on the task of sending meaningful messages to your husband on a regular basis.
Use the instant messengers like AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, etc. to keep your love life hopping, long distance. You have relative privacy and can reinforce the width and depth of your love this way. Try to IM each day and night!
Be really creative by writing a letter or finding a picture of something you have shared together. Paste the letter/picture to a piece of cardboard and then cut it into several puzzle pieces. Send your husband a few pieces every other day in the mail and once he has completed the puzzle send a dozen roses in celebration!
Have someone take pictures of you or your children and create a handmade calendar. Use card paper and glue a colorful border on each piece. Color copy it and enlarge the pictures, pasting them on the paper. Print out boxes on the computer for the days and decorate each week or month. Tie them all together with a fancy ribbon and send it to him in the mail.
Send your husband letters sprayed with your perfume/cologne. Soak pieces of material with your scent and include those and it will last forever!
If you can’t be there to share a special moment, send your husband dinner by calling a restaurant where he lives and have them deliver your hubby's favorite meal. Use your computer cam to enjoy the meal together!
Instead of sending your husband a hand-written letter, send a blank tape and microphone, and tell him your greatest desire for him when you next meet. Your husband can listen to the tape whenever he wants to hear your voice.
Send a package with a tape of the songs you listened to together the last time you were together. Send some of his favorite candy, and something memorable like a little stuffed toy. Tell him how much he is missed! It's a great way to let your husband know you're thinking about him despite the distance.
Surprise your husband by arranging for a delivery of flowers! Attach a handwritten card professing your love for him. This is always a beautiful surprise!
Design a webpage in your hubby's honor. Dedicate the page to your relationship and include poetry, thoughts, pictures, romantic messages, the story of how you met, and all other details to make him smile.
Send your husband a virtual love card. Send them regularly!
Save a record of all of your email over your long-distance relationship. Once you have accumulated a full years worth, print them all out and separate them by month.
For every month, make a cover page that summarizes all of the important and sentimental things that you have done together. Include pictures taken, too. Have all of the pages bound into a hard-covered book, and give it a title, like "Love Abounds" inscribed on the cover. This will become a treasured keepsake!
