Are you in a long-distance relationship? If so, you know that they can be extremely difficult, especially during a global pandemic. However, we know from experience that they can also be very rewarding.

Everyone knows the downsides of an LDR – you don’t get to spend as much time with your significant other as you would like. Rather than blossoming through shared experiences, the relationship’s focus on one-on-one conversation can become very intense very quickly.

But what about the benefits of an intercity, interstate, or intercountry relationship? Well, one of its potential downsides – intensity – is also one of its greatest benefits. The frequent phone calls, video chats, and e-mail conversations that are the hallmark of a long-distance relationship can allow couples to get to know one another deeply very quickly. This is great, but can get a little heavy at times.

Long-Distance Relationships

We’ve got some ideas to lighten up your LDR with shared experiences.

  1. Play games together online. Maybe you like chess, or you’re both trivia junkies. There are options for these, and many other games on the Internet.
  2. Read the same book and talk about it.
  3. Watch a movie or TV show at the same time.
  4. Surprise your significant other with a care package that references inside jokes, memories and your shared likes.
  5. Learn together. Why not try a language or a cooking class together? You can find a number of live group classes on the Internet.

And when you do get to see one another, get out and experience things together.

One thing that long-distance couples can find challenging is the lack of a shared social life. This is where Couplr can help you once meeting strangers is popular and safe again!
