Whether its through marriage, or non-contracted, committed and serious relationships. This current time is having its challenges as it pertains to those who are in long distant relationships. Those couplings and partnerships, who have found love and are forced to continue it from, afar!

That’s if you are continuing to immerse yourself in that sacred bond. A sacred coupling, which has been divinely orchestrated and arranged by the Universe grows stronger; no matter how distant two lovers may be.

*Observing Your Silent, Love!

Silence is more than golden! In fact, there are other jewels coloring its existence! You can learn a lot about a person, by simply watching them. Observe them. There are times when you can feel that love, just by looking at them. So sit and look! Put your Face Time or Zoom on. Maybe have some background music on. Do regular things around the house, that you all would normally do when you are together, or during life’s regular periods. Allow your partner to see you move around, or when you are sitting down, while occupied with a particular task. Re-learn and re-explore each other all over again!

*New Hobby, Higher Love!

Has there been something that you and your significant other have been thinking about doing, together? Something that is healthy for both of you. Find it and stick to it. Make it a weekly ritual. Again, you can use your technology mediums to assist you in showing off what you have produced. Or you can produce it together. The call is yours!

*Date Night Is Still A Great Night!

You miss those date nights, right? So, keep them going! Being separated should not stop you. Plan a night. Perhaps do it once a week. Create different themes for each of those nights. Spice up the excitement! Each of you can cook your own meals. High value meals, of course! Dress up as if you two are about to take the night by storm. Get the Zoom and FaceTime ready. Each of you get a bottle of wine, or your favorite drink. Whichever is of your choosing! Nevertheless, make date night another great night, EVERLASTING!

*The Distance Of Intimacy

Yes! That clearly is a very important issue, is it not? Keeping the physical chemistry alive is one of the challenges when in long distance relationships. Physically, you are separated. Nevertheless, this is a great time to strengthen intimacy. Re-exploring new things. Doing active research together assists the two of you in improving in this significant component of your relationship. What are new practices and intimate artistry the two of you would like to explore? Furthermore, it would give you the opportunity to be honest with each other, regarding any concerns. Distance does not mean you lose that physical attraction, allure, and chemistry. In fact, this is the time when you can learn more about each other.

Now, that the world has been forced to become distant, love is forcing new ways of thriving! Creating new ways of being stimulated and existing, temporarily! We don’t know how long this will end. Romantic couples in long distant relationships cannot control this. What they can control, however, is putting in more work (more than what they have ever had to do) in building the love, already there! Like a flower, water it, feed it, and give it enough sunlight! Enjoy how it blooms and save more bouquets for when that love gets back together, once more!
