I never imagined I'd end up in a long distance relationship but here I am, enamored with a person who lives hours away from me. If it wasn't for video calls, I'm not sure we would have been so successful. Phone calls and messages are great but there's nothing like seeing your partner's cute face mirroring your googlee-love eyes that makes all the bother of distance worth it. Having been in a long distance relationship for almost 2 years, I'm sure these are the three video calls you'll need to keep that spark.
Face to face conversations.
Texting and phone calls are nice but sometimes you just want to see your partners face when you talk to them. You wanna see their smile, facial expression, hand gestures. You don't just want their words or their voice you want to be as close to them as technology will allow. Long distance is hard. You really need those face to face calls to look into their eyes and have those deep, intimate, loving conversations.
Other times you just want them in the background
Sometimes you don't feel like talking but you still want your partner around. These video calls are just to have your partner in the background so you can do your own thing but still be together. I've had video calls with my partner where one of us is literally napping while the other goes about their day. Sometimes you don't need to say anything. It's funny how just being in each other's company does things words alone just can't.
The romantic call
And then there's romantic call where you call your partner just to stare stupidly into their eyes and daydream about the next time you can see them. When you're comfortable with someone, awkward things like flirting and intense eye contact suddenly become a fun, sought after way to connect.
