When you fall in love with someone, it is going to be your natural desire to spend time with that person, building your relationship. However, when there is a location difference coming between the two of you, this isn’t always going to be possible. Long distance relationships are not quite the same as other relationships because of the fact that the two of you aren’t going to be face to face much of the time. With these types of relationships, you have to come up with more creative ways to express how you are feeling to one another. One of the things that you will be feeling often is that you are missing the person that you are apart from physically, but so connected to in your heart. The following are ten ways that you can say “I miss you” in a long distance relationship.
1-Greeting cards are wonderful ways of expressing that you miss someone, even if you, yourself, aren’t that good with words. There are so many to choose from that you are quite likely to find one that says just the way that you are feeling.
2-Singing telegrams are some of the funnest ways to let a loved one know that you are missing them. Go online to find a person in his or her area that will deliver the gift of song (and maybe even a little dance) to your special someone. This is an unforgettable way to say that you miss him or her.
3-Flower deliveries are another way to say that you are missing someone. Have the flowers delivered to your partner’s home or office and you will definitely add a bit of cheer as he or she sees the beauty of love all wrapped up in a pretty vase. You can add a card, candy, or some other little notion to make the delivery even more special.
4-Teddy grams and/or pajama grams are interesting ways to let someone know that you’re thinking of them, too. Quite similar to a floral delivery, your loved one will receive either a stuffed animal or a set of pajamas that they can snuggle up with, or in, tonight when you can’t be there to warm their hearts and beds.
5-Love letters, for those who have a flair with words, are excellent ways to express your feelings of longing for another person. Often, love letters that are received are saved and treasured for a lifetime.
6-Call and say it! With home phones, cell phones, and even internet-based phone services, it’s easier than ever to reach out and touch someone across the telephone lines.
7-Scrapbooking is a popular hobby for many people today, so if this is something that you are interested in, why not make a scrapbook that chronicles your relationship with the person that you are missing and then send it to them? This will be a special keepsake for him or her to look at when they are missing you a lot. Leave a page blank at the end, so that the two of you can fill it together with photos and mementos that you gather the next time you are together.
8-Music CDs are easy to make right from your home computer and you can fill one with songs of love that are special to the two of you or express how you are feeling.
9-Care packages can be shipped to your special someone across the miles that seperate you. Fill them with items that your partner loves, such as their favorite treats, a stuffed animal, a romantic card, and anything else that you want to which your partner will enjoy receiving.
10-Personalized gifts are really special ways to let someone know that you miss them. You can have clothing made with a picture of the two of you silk-screened on them. You can get special coffee mugs, tote bags, even mouse pads, that have photos on them. Engraved jewelry is always a hit, especially with the ladies. There are tons of items that can be personalized which will be useful, as well as romantic, ways of saying “I miss you”.
Long-distance relationships can be hard, since there are so many times that you are feeling lonely for the person that you love. However, they can also be creative and fun as you have to think up new ways of expressing your heart. You may not get to share that kiss good-night tonight, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do other things that ensure your partner of your love and longing for them.
