Date Ideas for Long Distance Couples

Long Distance-min

Seeing as not everyone lives in the same town, or country, and have a long distance relationship, I have decided to do a post of different date ides that you can still (hopefully) enjoy. Just because you can’t see each other every day it does not mean that you can’t at least try and have fun date nights. Hopefully these will give you some inspiration and different ideas.

Watch a movie together

With the wonderful invention of Netflix you can both watch the same movie at the same time. If you speak on the phone, or text during it, it will still (kind of) feel like you’re together.

Truth or Dare

Sure, this might not be a date by itself however add it to something else and it could be a real winner. There are so many fun and interesting ideas on the internet if you just use google 😉

Read to each other

Anyone want to read a Nicholas Sparks book to me? No? This would be such a romantic thing to do, in my opinion…although perhaps that would depend on the book!

Create a scavenger hunt

Create one for each other and give yourselves a specified amount of time to complete everything. After the allocated time is up, Skype and see if everything has been found.

Play that music

Make a playlist of any songs that remind you of the other person. Another idea is to write down exactly why you like each of the songs and why it reminds you of your significant other.

Exercise together

If exercise if more your thing then why not come up with an exercise plan and try it out together? Another option is to go on a hike and Skype/Face Time at specified times!

Learn a language

Maybe you’re planning a trip together and maybe you’re not. Either way, why not learn a new language together? Make specified times where you call each other and practice speaking to each other. It’s fun and you’re learning a valuable skill as well!

Send puzzles

I don’t mean actual puzzles (although those are a great idea as well!) but sending each other things like decoders and cryptograms are really fun and you can put secret messages in them which can be adorable! You can make them for each other and decode them together.

Play 20 questions

This can actually be a really fun date if you find questions that either you are dying to know, or if you just ask really random questions that no one would think of.

Have a selfie competition

Each of you can go around your city and try and find the weirdest or funniest things to take a selfie with. Share your photos at the end of the date and decide whose photos were the best!

I hope that if you are in a long distance relationship you found some of these helpful and that you’ll try some!

    These are great ideas! I like the ones that get you out and active ”together,” like the hiking one.
