Being far away from your SO is hard enough in itself. Here’s a list of things to invest in that will make the distance a little bit easier to handle:
Okay, so you don’t have to go this far, but a simple body pillow to cuddle with can make those lonely nights much more bearable.
Skyping will be made much more bearable if you both have a quality pair of headphones and a microphone because there’s nothing better than being able to hear the sounds of your SO’s voice. And along these same lines, head to the store and buy a video camera if your computer doesn’t have one. Once you’re finally looking at each other’s smiling faces, say hi to your SO for me!
While you’re doing all that Skyping, you’ll find that you can never get your laptop to stay in a comfortable place. But never fear; a lap desk is the computer-lover’s savior.
Sending your SO cute little gifts in the mail can become absolutely addicting. A subscription to a website like Amazon will can save you loads of dough. Not to mention you’ll get free two-day shipping, so you can surprise your SO even sooner.
You never know when a wave of sadness may hit you, so always have the freezer stocked just in case.
Not only is this a great way to spend some alone time, it’s also perfect for staying connected to your SO. Start a series together and guess which man the main character will end up with or watch a movie at the same time and gasp together on video chat as the drama unfolds – the possibilities are endless.
Travel can be very expensive. But when you’re in an LDR, you really can’t put a price on the feeling you get when you finally see your SO. So splurge a little and take that trip. Your wallet may feel a little emptier, but when you’re in your SO’s arms I promise you won’t regret the purchase.
