Fun Things To Do With Your Boyfriend That Lives 680 Miles Away

What To Do For Fun With Your Boyfriend When He Lives 680 Miles Away

Sending snapchats back and forth isn't the only thing


From the title of this article, you might think my boyfriend lives 680 miles away. You thought correctly because he does, in fact, live 680 miles away. Don't worry, the activities that I will mention in this article don't need to be specific to that amount of miles. So with that being said, if your special someone lives a good chunk of miles away you should be doing these things to make life a little less boring.

I'm not even going to mention snap chatting because that's a given thing to do. Facetime is also a pretty obvious thing, but if you want to be a little goofy just randomly facetime your boyfriend and stick your tongue out and then hang up immediately. It sounds dumb, but trust me it's fun, I would know. It leaves them wondering why you did such a thing.

If you want to get even goofier, just start emailing each other. Type out a formal email expressing your love and send it their way. Texting doesn't need to be the only form of communication here, but on the topic of texting, start typing in all caps to each other. This may sound weird, but metaphorically speaking since you are farther away from each other than a lot of other couples you'll need to text louder. Kooky, I know, but it's fun. Something even kookier is if you just so happen to be connected with each other on LinkedIn, why not send a message on there every once and awhile. However, make it professional because messaging your significant other was not what it was made for.

Aside from all those shenanigans, there are a lot of sincere things you can do. Sending a care package every once in a while is an amazing thing. It doesn't matter what it's filled with because whatever it is it's filled with love. Also, a super fun thing to do it mail letters to each other. I know, super old-school, but also super heartfelt. Receiving a letter with a return address that has your significant others name on it really makes your heart start to race. Before you open it you wonder what words they could have poured out onto a piece of paper and what words you'll say back. It's really a great thing that I wish everyone would do, no matter the distance.

One more great thing to do together is talk about the next time you're going to see each other. Not even just the next time, maybe the next few times. Plan some fun things to do together and just keep talking about it. The amazing thing with these types of relationships is that there will always be something to look forward to. The goodbyes are hard of course, but you will always have the next trip to each other to look forward to. There are fun things to do with each other no matter how far or close. Take my advice on this!

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
