It's time to make New plans
What can I say? Things happen. And even though you planned to visit your partner, something happened that’s completely out of your hands, and now you’re stuck. You have to reconsider your travel plans or you have to remain abroad for an indefinite period.
Now you have to wait until you’re given the green light to continue with your travel plans. This is a hard pill to swallow, as you were probably waiting in anticipation for the moment to reunite with your partner.
But, there are things you can do in the meantime if your travel plans have been canceled. Here are 7 tips on what to do with your partner while you are away from each other.
1. Amp up the communication
It’s easy to feel discouraged and let down when your travel plans have been canceled, but this isn’t the time to wallow in self-pity. Things happen, and you need to adjust quickly. For now, until you get to see your partner, treat this like a long-distance relationship, if it is not already.
Focus on using technology, such as social media, to keep the connection alive. Whether it’s Snapchat or Whatsapp, make sure you give each other enough time to talk and see each other through video chat.
2. Include them in your day
So, you won’t be seeing your partner for a while, but that doesn’t mean they’re out of your life. And when there’s distance, it’s easy to create your own life outside of the relationship. This is when things can go downhill quickly.
If you’re going for a walk, facetime them and show your partner where you are. If you’re online shopping for clothes or accessories, take photos and send them to your partner. Make them feel like they’re not that far away.
3. Make new travel plans together
If you want to get through the wait, you two should have a goal. What’s a better goal than the next time you’ll see each other? Online!
Get together and create a travel plan of where you two will meet each other next. Planning a new trip will keep the two of you excited for the moment you’ll see each other again, and keep your minds off of the canceled trip.
4. Get flirty
This isn’t the time to step back, if anything, it’s the time where you and your partner need to amp things up in your virtual bedroom. Because you lack the physical connection with your partner, you’ll need to bring out your flirtatious side.
Let your partner know that you’re sexually attracted to them and desire them. When there’s a distance between people, it’s easy to feel forgotten and unwanted.
Get flirty, get cheeky, get naughty.
5. Play online games together
You know the old saying, a couple that games together, stays together. Oh, it’s not an old saying? Well, it should be! Keep the spark in your relationship alive by having fun together, even if you’re not in each other’s company.
If your partner is into playing video games, you may be more focused on figuring out how to release your own sexual tension. Well, there’s an adult toy for that. Kiiroo’s couple sets aren’t only sex toys.
They’re interactive and can help partners connect on different levels. You can connect your couples set to interactive games and even virtual reality. Who said video games aren’t fun?
6. Let’s get physical
When it comes to long-distance, the lack of sex is usually the biggest problem couples have. How can you be physically intimate when you’re miles apart? The beauty is now you can still be physically intimate with your partner even when they’re not in the same room as you.
All you need are the right toys. Kiiroo’s couple sets allows couples to control their each other's toy, giving them maximum pleasure and stimulation. Sure, you can masturbate alone, but why would you when you can have sex with your partner in real-time?
7. Send each other surprise gifts
Who doesn’t like surprises? Everyone likes the idea of having their significant other thinking of them. To keep the spark alive, be spontaneous, and send your partner a surprise.
If you two don’t have sex toys, you can surprise them with sexy lingerie. These are surprises that will benefit your relationship and improve the physical connection, which is what everyone wants.
Don’t let distance get in the way of your relationship; instead, get creative and use the right tools to help you pass the time until you see your partner again.
A little distance never hurt anyone, especially if you know what to do.
