Long-distance relationships are as hard as they sound, and spending holidays like Valentine's Day apart make them even harder.

Couples in most parts of the world plan ahead of February 14 to create fond memories. But when you are all by yourself, and your significant other is somewhere miles away, it can be tough.

Nevertheless, you can still have a romantic time this Valentine together with your partner even while he is away physically by following these steps:

The 'I love you' call


This might sound cliché but trust me it’s so important. You probably call your partner every day, but on this special day, don’t forget that romantic “I just called to say I love you” phone call. You can do this first thing in the morning. The fact is your partner hearing you say “I love you” as soon as they wake up can make them feel good, loved and special for at least the whole day.

Plan for an online date

You can still have a romantic candlelight dinner with your partner this Valentine even though they are miles apart. Note this. Both of you can order the same meal you like, open a bottle of wine, play your favourite music and light some candles. You can then video call your partner through video-chatting apps like Skype, IMO, Whatsapp, Facebook and so on and enjoy this virtual date. You would definitely love this.


You can have a movie marathon over the phone

You both might have had romantic movie dates in the past when you were not miles away. That should not stop. Still, plan and enjoy a movie night this Valentine. All you need to do is to have a movie marathon over the phone. This is where you pick movies you both prefer and watch them at the same time. You might in the process laugh at some of the funny scenes together or get horny over the romantic ones. This will surely make your night.

Send a video


You can alternatively create a video clip of yourself expressing your feelings for your partner and how you miss their presence. You can Whatsapp, Email them this clip, or send it via the other social networking sites like Facebook and Yes! You are good to go.

Send a Gift

Send your partner some few things they really like. You can and add to those things a handwritten love note. Place a delivery order to surprise him or her during the day. Get it delivered to them in their homes or at their workplace. They will surely love it.

Show up

Plan a surprise trip to see your partner. Get a plane ticket and a time off from work, and show up at his or her home for this Valentine. This would surely be one of the ultimate gifts you can give your loved one this special day.
