How to Bring Out Sensuality in a Long Distance Relationship
Work on your emotional intimacy.
Remember to focus on loving yourself as well as your partner. Be in touch with your emotional needs and deal with them on a personal level. Communicate those needs with your partner. If there is something going on that you’re worried or fearful about, address it. You don’t want to keep any emotions a secret, from yourself or from your partner.
Wear something of his.
When you go to bed at night, wear a t-shirt or hoodie that belongs to your significant other. You’ll smell his scent and it will feel like he’s lying right beside you. Touches like that will add a little piece of comfort to your routine. It’s never easy being away from your significant other for months and months at a time, but small things like this will help ease your heart.
Send photos. Lots of them.
Hey, we’re not advocating for explicit photos here. Just be thoughtful and send a picture of the sun setting and let your partner know you’re thinking of them. Or take a silly selfie! Perhaps even a sensual one. Show him that you’re going out shopping, taking your pet to the park, or having a night out with the girls. He’ll appreciate knowing that you’re having a good time, and you’ll be happy seeing what he’s doing every day as well.
Be more open.
Talk to each other. Share your feelings. Have an engaging conversation. Flirt over the phone or through a video chat. Have a virtual date night. In order to have a successful relationship, you have to work towards communication each and every day. Ideas like these will help you stay in touch, and build your relationship, even though you’re far apart.
Write letters. Send a gift in the mail.
Going a bit more traditional here, but sending written notes to your lover is a great way to keep in touch. You can text each other all day long, and talk on the phone, sure. But giving them a physical letter, written by you, is something special.
Set up a routine time for each other.
Set your video chats at a set time just like you would on what time to eat dinner, what time to get up, what time to shower. Find a set day and time each week that both of you are the least likely to be preoccupied.
Plan ahead when you’re going to visit each other.
Purchasing plane tickets or scheduling a road trip will take time and money. Try to schedule your trips around holiday weekends or 3-day weekends so the trip is less likely to disrupt other aspects of your life.
There you have it. Long distance relationships are never going to be easy, but luckily we have plenty of options to keep them intact while our loved one lives far away from us. We hope that you find these tips useful. If you’re in a long-distance relationship, these tips will help your relationship sustain itself and remain solid. If you’re not in a long distance relationship, this is still great stuff to know, and you can still use it!
