Long-distance date ideas during the quarantine

If you and your bae are in a long-distance relationship, you know that it takes extra effort to keep your connection strong and the spark alive.

Sure, texts and calls help, but when you cannot go on regular dates like going for a walk or grabbing drinks, you may feel frustrated. When you have a long-distance relationship – be it by quarantine or time zones – it is important that you are focused on finding romance, even if it is in unconventional, small ways. 

Here are some date ideas all of which you can do virtually. These long-distance dates will help you strengthen your bond from afar and even help you appreciate your next reunion (in real life) even more.

Send a care package

Mail your partner a customized care package to show you are thinking of them. We have some ideas for you: You can surprise them with a boozy delivery, then order the same for you and “meet” for a drink over Skype.

Or you can get creative and send a themed vacation box. For example, if you have been dying to go visit Hawaii together, send a package containing sunglasses, a lei, a recipe for the cocktail Mai Tai, and a cocktail umbrella. Then enjoy your virtual “vacation” together, and start planning your next (real) getaway.

Make playlists for each other

Making mixtapes was the most romantic thing you could do in the 90s, so this is a 2020’s version of that. Services like Spotify and Apple Music let you make and share playlists. 

long-distance

Put your partner’s favorite ballads, the one inside joke song, the songs that make you miss them, and some new songs you know they will like and have a virtual listening session.

Start a book club

Okay, this will be a two-person book club, but who cares? Pick a book that you will both like and read it at the same time. Most importantly, choose a date to finish it by, and have a virtual book club discussion (wine and cheese optional, but highly recommended). 

Reading a book “together” will require dedication and it will provoke in-depth conversations throughout.

Watch the same TV show

This is Netflix and chill but from afar. We advise you to download Netflix Party, which allows two people to synchronize their accounts and watch something simultaneously. 

Watch each episode together so you can send texts in real-time. Fun! Okay, and if you are up for it – you can have a little ‘chill’ time afterward. Yes, we are talking about sexting, or if you are braver – masturbating simultaneously on Skype. 

Motivate each other to exercise

And sweat! You cannot be gym buddies, but you can sign up for the same virtual working out or yoga sessions. That would be a real motivation! 

Send sexy texts

Okay, this is a must when you have a long-distance relationship! Spark the flame from afar with some hot stuff via text, leaving no detail out about how you want to rip their clothes off right now. And yes, you can include seductive photos, but just remember the internet is permanent. Instead of sending nudes, you can strip a little while having your date on Skype, as we mentioned. 

Arrange a fancy date night

Sometimes, being all dressed up is a fun way to remind your partner how good you look. Put on your finest outfit, and have a virtual dinner. Set the mood with a lovely playlist, lots of candles, and a wine or champagne.

Stargaze 

You are under the same sky with the same stars and that is pretty romantic. Sit outside, get your boo on the phone, and enjoy the constellations together. Looking at the sky and the same stars will make you feel closer.

Bake cookies together

What a better way to spend some quality time together? You can be silly and make a whole mess in the kitchen while preparing the cookies, and then have fun cleaning it up. Cozy up by your fireplace, take your freshly baked cookies and make tea with rum, too. The tea will add to the warmth!

Sing karaoke

Belting out “I Will Always Love You” in public may not be for you, but you can have your karaoke when no one can hear you! Well, except for your neighbors! This is about being silly together, so it’s a key for a lighthearted date. When you look foolish with someone else, the embarrassing act will turn into a bonding one. Sing your hearts out to your favorite songs. So, you will make some fun memories together! 

How to prepare a romantic dinner at home

Watch all your favorite movies

Since you love to stay in bed during the cold weather, use it as an opportunity to watch all your favorite movies. You can take turns and watch each other’s picks. Stock up on the cookies, get your blankets out, and make your partner watch your favorite movies, no matter how cheesy they are. 

Make cocktails

Find some recipes online and put all those bottles at your home to good use to make some festive cocktails together! Bourbon-spiked hot chocolate? Yes, please! Sparkling apple cider sangria? Even better. Enjoy!

How to celebrate your anniversary at home?

Host a beer tasting

Pick up different beers and host a tasting for two! You can try champagne-style beers, chocolate stouts, sour beers, or some types you have never tried before. And we all know that we have more fun in bed after a few glasses of alcohol!

A spa day at home

Draw up a bubble bath with bath salts and essential oils. Put on some relaxing music, light candles, and enjoy spending time together, not caring for the rest of the world. And some wine would be a great idea! There is some magic in spending time naked with your partner!

Signs that you shouldn’t start a relationship

To protect yourself and not get hurt, it would be smart to pay attention to some signs before you start a serious relationship.

In some situations, it is more than obvious that the person you are seeing will be the perfect partner for a serious relationship, but sometimes their behavior can make you doubt it.

Below you can see the warning signs that you should not start a relationship with the person you like at the moment.

They constantly cancel plans

How many times have you prepared to go out with this person, and they canceled on you at the last minute? It can happen to all of us to cancel a plan because something unexpected has come up. But if this happens too often, then this person does not value your time or you at all. Therefore, do not waste your time with them.

They hide you from everyone

It is normal at the beginning not to tell everyone that you have someone new in your life. We all have been there – we are not sure if we will continue to see that person, so we keep things to ourselves. However, if you see each other for a long time and this person is still hiding from your friends, something is wrong.

Do they avoid going to a restaurant or any public place and always suggest going to their place or yours? Do they always find an excuse not to meet even their best friends? If yes, ask yourself why.

They still complain about their ex

Maybe they are just whiny, or they might have unresolved issues with their former partner. You do not have to listen to them. Trust us – that never ends well. Your dates shouldn’t feel like counseling sessions. You do not have to keep all your romantic plans aside because you have to console them. 

They are NEVER available

This is one of the signs you should never ignore. You do not want to be with a person who never replies to your messages, doesn’t take your calls, and NEVER calls back. How do you expect them to be there for you when they don’t even take your calls? 

They do not want you to be friends on social networks

Social networks are an important part of our lives today, so if the person you like uses them but does not want to be online friends, they are hiding something.

Calling you only at night (or when drunk)

If this person likes you, they will not think of you only at night or when they are bored. If you have noticed that they call you and send you messages only in the evening or after drinking alcohol, it is not worth spending your time with them.

signs

They change their attitude all the time 

One day they treat you like you are the most important person in the world for them, but the next they forget that you exist. Did you go out with this person and have a wonderful time, but the next day they did not write you one message? Well, this person is not interested in you, and you shouldn’t hope that they will change.

They tell you that they are not ready for a relationship

But that is confusing, right? They don’t want you to be in a relationship, but they still flirt with you and call you? Although it is difficult to accept this, they are probably just using you. If you want something serious, but they always have an excuse why not to start a relationship, it is time to find someone else.

Break up if you cannot imagine the future with your partner 

Does thinking about the future freaks you out? Well, you should break up if you cannot see your partner in the future. Don’t get us wrong – we are all about staying in the moment instead of looking ahead into the future. However, if you cannot picture your partner beside you on your best adventures, well, that is a bad sign. 

If you hold your current partner without intent for plans, you are limiting both of you from finding true happiness. Just ask, “Where do I see myself in 1 year?” Now, did you see this person with you?

You feel bored or stuck 

Sorry, but you probably need to break up if you are not satisfied regardless of what you do together. If you have tried everything together from rock climbing to trips, but you still disengage from your partner when you are together, it may be a sign to move on. You should break up particularly if you constantly imagine how your life would be different without him/her and the vision is tempting.

Break up if you do not feel like a priority

Do you continuously feel insignificant, neglected, or not cared for in the relationship? There is a major difference between a person who is busy with commitments and a person who simply does not make time for you. If your partner is neglectful and inattentive of your needs, despite your efforts in communicating your needs to him/her, well your partner is not valuing the relationship and you. Your partner will never be capable of meeting your emotional needs if they lack adequate relationship skills.

You are on different pages

If you feel all the time that one of you is more “in it” than the other, then maybe it is time to end things. Okay, it is normal for feelings to seesaw a little bit. However, if you feel like your partner is so into you and you are only meh about them or vice versa, then your relationship may have been doomed from the very beginning. You cannot force someone who does not want to be in a serious relationship to want one all of a sudden. You have to accept that is not the one if the timing is off. We know that and this is one of the hardest lessons anyone has to learn.
