15 Romantic Ways To Show Love In A Long Distance Relationship
Tag each other
You can’t tag one another in real life in an LDR so tag each other on social media. By this, I mean tag each other in funny memes, gifs, or articles. This let’s your partner knows that you are thinking about them and you want them to see this interesting piece of content.

With an app like Tik/Tok, you can now create fun videos that showcase your love. Sing, dance, act, or just do silly things in the video to help strengthen your bond.

That’s what you do in standard relationships, you go out for dinner. Taking in consideration that this is impossible for long distance lover, you should try to find an alternative. A Skype or Facetime dinner is the closest thing to that. It can’t substitute real dinner 100%, but it will do the trick. Get dressed as well as you would get dressed for an in-person occasion. Light the candles, and turn off the lights, soft background music will make a memorable romantic date.
