I am currently dating a wonderful guy. However, we don't see each other every day. He's working in the city and I live in Long Island. We are in love, but I feel like I need to do something cute once in a while to keep it alive. I just don't know what to do. What do I send to show him how much I care and how much I'm thinking of him? Soon the long distance thing will be over, but until then how do I show him how much I love him?
--Showing the Love
Dear Showing the Love,
One of the best things about being in a long distance romance is the opportunity for good old-fashioned romance. The use of mail is a wonderful and unexpected way to express your feelings to your partner. Sending your partner a love letter, a group of quotes, a poem or just a funny, romantic card can let them know they are on your mind.
Other ways to show your feelings include:
Make Custom Love Letter Puzzles
You can buy "make you own puzzle" kits at most craft stores. Write a love letter or some type of personal message on the completed puzzle. Then send your partner the puzzle to complete and read the message. You can also decide to send them the puzzle pieces once a week or day to build up the anticipation.
Sweet Treats for My Sweet
If you know what little sweets your partner likes, send them a few in gift box. In the boxes write out little I love you messages on slips of paper for them to read.
Journals for Two
Purchase two journals. Send one to your partner with instructions for him to write a few words about his day or thoughts. You will do the same with the other journal. After about a month or so, mail each other your journals and continue your daily writing. Then, switch again.
