It’s a common misconception that long-distance relationships are doomed from the start, but some studies actually reveal that a lot more of them last than we think. No matter how you look at it, though, being away from a loved one can be difficult. If these circumstances are familiar, you probably look for ways to make your time together exciting. You want to surprise him and bridge the gap in your long-distance relationship. When you’ve tried out all your best ideas, here are a few more to keep you inspired.
1. Wear something sexy underneath
Lingerie can spice up your love life in a lot of ways. Sure, wearing it in the bedroom is a fantastic treat for your man. But wearing it underneath your clothes for a night out on the town when you’re in the same city gives you a secret that he’ll be pleased to uncover later on. You’ll have a sexy confidence that will draw him to you.
And if you think you can’t pull it off, think again. You can find lingerie for any body type. You might be in the market for plus size sexy lingerie, or you might just be looking for some accessories. Think fishnet stockings, garters, lace panties, or plus size corsets to add a little something extra to your wardrobe. Anything that shows off your curves will make him happy.
2. Slip him a hotel key
There are a few ways you can surprise your lover with a romantic getaway. You can have a hotel room key and a sexy note messengered to him at work. You can slip the key under his apartment door for him to find when he gets home, or you can simply slip it in his pocket while you’re out with friends.
Either way, attach a message with a rendezvous time and room number of the hotel where he should meet you. And, of course, don’t forget the lingerie!
3. Cook his favorite meal
You might have heard that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well, believe it or not, surveys actually reveal that’s pretty close to the truth. In fact, 80% of the people surveyed in a 2013 study felt that “preparing a meal for someone is a significant act of love.”
So, next time you’re in the same city, text his best friend to find out what he likes to eat if you don’t already know. Then spend a few hours preparing the best meal of his life. It will likely be something he’ll never forget.
4. Consider moving a little closer
Moving a little closer to your lover is something you’ll probably have to consider eventually, but it’s certainly nothing to take lightly. This is a big step that you should only take if it’s something you’ve both already talked about. It should also be clear that it’s something you both want.
Once you are both in a place where you feel it’s a healthy and safe next step, it might be time to explore your options. Getting your LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) is the best place to start. It’s what you’ll need to do to begin the process of getting a temporary Canadian work permit. This will assess whether or not there is a need for your skill in the country. It will also give you and the government an idea of the number of Canadians who are capable of doing the same job. Keep in mind that this can be a lengthy process, but there is help available to complete it.
5. Send him plane tickets to visit you
You might be the one who is always traveling to see him, but it’s important that he gets a sense of your culture and surroundings as well. This is particularly true if your relationship is a serious one. If it’s moving toward marriage or long-term commitment, you might want your partner to meet your family.
If money’s an issue, you can be on the lookout for a great discount. Particular times of the week and year are much cheaper for travel than others. Also, don’t forget to sign up for membership miles programs so you can rack up all those travel benefits for future use.
