Texting Alternatives For Couple To Stay In Touch
Whether you’re at work, on a trip with friends, or whatever reason the two of you are apart...we miss the ones we are in love with. We wonder what they are doing and get the urge to connect with them throughout the day. A few texts here and there are ok, but why not get creative and mix it up. Here are a few ideas to help you feel that connection and stay off your phones a little more.
- Go old school and write a love letter or card. Sometimes, the oldies really are the goodies. The art of writing letters seems to be lost in this modern world. Sneak a special note in your partner’s wallet, car, gym bag, purse, work bag, diaper bag, or even their breakfast cereal box. These gestures are more personal and meaningful than a text message.
- Send them a “just because” gift to the office. This could be anything from flowers, to candy, to uber eats bringing them their favorite meal. This is also a great way to show off how well you really know them.
- Try a fun game playing on the term "a picture is worth a thousand words". You can’t text words, you can only send each other just one simple photo, only one time, during the work day. Switch it up and send a funny, sexy, or cute one so you always keep them guessing and having you on their mind.
- Make a CD mix and leave it in their car to listen to on the way to work. This is even more romantic than going into a store and buying a CD for the one you love. Make a compilation of all of your favorite tunes. If there are any special songs that make you think of each other, then you can add those to the mix. You don't have to pick something overly sappy or sentimental. Keep it fun.
- Meet on your lunch hour. If the weather is nice, make it a picnic. People don't do lunch dates as often as they used to. Think of it as a mid-day treat. Gives you something to look forward to. It's short and sweet.
Surprises can lead to greater intimacy, tender interactions, lighthearted fun, and relationship contentment. They can act as a catalyst for a whole host of other relationship patterns to shift for the better through a domino-like effect.
