Can we give a special shout out to those who have decided to endure one of the hardest types of relationship, namely the long-distance? It takes a strong as hell couple to start or wind up living that life. And while it can be great the whole way through for some, others tend to fall into a bit of a rut because well, distance isn’t great for the sex. Of course, it is not always about the sex, but it does put a damper on things when you are not physically in contact with bae all the damn time. Never fear though! For those who are sticking it out in long-distance relationships, here's how you can keep that spark of romance burning.

Sext Your Heart Out

It is not just for Fuck Boys. Sexting is crucial for those in long-distance relationships because it helps you see what your partner is thinking. Yes, even those naughty thoughts are important. Plus, if they are sexting you they are thinking about you and not some local thot trying to get with them. Sexting also allows you a little more sexual freedom as well, especially if you are more on the shy side. You can vocalize your sexual fantasies to them via text and then when you see your partner, realize them!

Old Fashioned Phone Sex

Texting can only take you so far. So that is when you need to hear your love’s voice. Those sultry words from their own mouths. But be careful when and where your phone sex takes place. Long-distance relationships often find partners in different time zones. So you do not want to call him when he is at work and cause him to pop a big ass boner in the breakroom. Plan it out and make it work for both of you.

Video Chat

The same goes for video chats. Technology has helped the long-distance relationship game in this way. Whether you are on your phone or laptop, video chatting can help you put a visual to the sexy conversation even more so. Also, do not think you always have to communicate about sex. You can text, call, or video chat about your day. Actually, do that often. You don’t want to become a stranger to your partner.

Handwrite Them a Letter

Okay, so stamps are always getting more and more expensive so we totally get if you do not want to Notebook this and write a letter every day you are apart but there is a level of romance in a handwritten letter. Imagine opening the mailbox, going through those Bed Bath & Beyond coupons, and then seeing an actual letter from your man? OMG, right?

Send Random Gifts

Do not just wait for birthdays, holidays, or anniversaries to send them a gift. If you see something they mentioned needing in passing, even if it’s just something as small as a new phone charger - get it and send it over. It’s cliche, but it really is the damn thought that counts! And in the end, even the smallest thing shows you’re thinking of them and aw, doesn’t that just warm the damn heart?

Utilize Airline Rewards

Chances are that you two have been going back and forth to one another and that can get really expensive. So sign up for those rewards programs airlines offer and freaking take full advantage. Plenty of airlines have credit cards, frequent flyer programs, and other things that make traveling a little easier on the bank account. Plus, no one loves a surprise visit more than someone who hasn’t seen their partner in a while.
