Gifts Equal Care, Remembrance & Thoughtfulness
If there’s one thing you must not skip in an LDR is gifting. Don’t wait for occasions. If there is a moment when you are terribly missing your better half, then go ahead and order them a gift. Thanks to gift delivery in the UK, gifting anywhere across the country is a cakewalk. It is essential to understand that a gift does not mean an iPhone or a solitaire always.
It’s the effort and warmth that matters. The thoughtful present could be a sweet bouquet or just a “thank you/I love you” card or note with a single rose (red, pink, white or yellow.. you decide!). As long as the gift defines you and your love, the value will never really matter. Do not let sitcoms or movies fool you into buying costly gifts that leave you in debt for the entire year. And we’re sure your partner surely wouldn’t like that either!
Handwritten Over Typed Any Day!
While all sorts of content is already imprinted on the card, we still go ahead and end up scribbling some of the other words to make it more personal. Undoubtedly, typing a love letter seems more accessible, as it can be done in a matter of seconds.
However, the impact a handwritten note makes is still unmatched. Indeed, writing a letter every day is impossible, but how about doing a bi-monthly or yearly ritual? You can pour your heart out or simply write about all the exceptional moments that have taken place in their absence. Plus, if you haven’t spoken to them in long, that makes it a longer letter. Some doodles and origami (no pressure, though) later, you will realize how creative you can be. Honestly, if this doesn’t make them cry or laugh until they feel like exploding, you got to rethink your relationship, Just kidding!
Have Faith; It’s Worth the Wait
The best thing that people usually forget in long-distance relationships is why they decided to be with each other in the first place. It is crucial to remind yourself why him/her over someone else constantly. It is equally important to trust them and let them know that you are around no matter what.
Please don’t make them feel guilty for hanging out with people from the opposite gender cause they might start lying to you. Be their friend first, always to keep the flow of conversations alive. The day you two begin getting wound up in the web of miscommunication and trust issues is the day you let a third person enter your relationship. So be optimistic, have faith.
