There are tons of ways to keep your long distance romance alive…
One of which, is having online dates – Yes, this is possible! As someone who has been in a long distance relationship for years, I’ve had countless online dates with my boyfriend…
Here are 5 online date ideas for you and your partner!
1. Movie Date – Watch the same film.
There’s a few ways to watch the same movie at the same time. One way is a website called ‘rabb.it’ – where you can simultaneously watch a film together. Basically, it’s one screen that you virtually share. The only downside is that it could sometimes get laggy. Another way to have an online movie date is to start Netflix at the same time on both of your accounts. Yes, this is much more difficult, but once you both start the movie at the same second, it’ll be in sync! (Just remember not to pause it because their screen will continue to play while yours is paused!)
2. Dinner Date – Cook / eat the same meal.
One of the many things you’ll miss while being away from your partner is having cute lil’ dinner dates. So, to feel closer to your partner, you can have an online dinner date! The best way to do this is to cook the same meal at the same time. Time differences can be a pain, but both of you need to plan your meals around your schedule. If you both love pasta, cook pasta (and Skype while doing so) – Or, if you’re like Gordon Ramsay, go ahead and cook a 3-course meal! Once your meals are done, you can sit down with your computer or phone in front of you and video chat while you eat. It’ll feel like you’re at (some strange) restaurant together!
3. Play a board game together.
Alright, this one isn’t as special as the other ideas, BUT it’s still fun! You could have a board game in front of you, for example, Monopoly, or Game of Life… You will have to take both of the turns, but while doing so, you’ll be video-chatting with your partner. So, even though you’ll have to roll for them, they’re still included in the game. To keep it simple, you can even just play a game of truth or dare… Who knows, it might get a little frisky!
4. Take online quizzes.
This could get interesting… Find some silly quizzes online to take together. Since you’re doing this all online, it’s super simple to do! There are millions of online quizzes – some are funny, intense, and / or ridiculous!! I’ve personally taken a quiz to find out what kind of animal our relationship resembles (like what??) Even though they can get weird, it’s still a fun thing to do with your partner – you’re bound to laugh!
5. Sit and chat.
This is perhaps the most intimate date you can have. Take however long you’d like to talk to your partner about absolutely anything. In doing so, you’ll learn so much about each other. Who knows, you might surprise each other with information neither of you knew!
