SUSTAIN YOUR LONG-DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
The holidays are the time of year when we long to be with people we love. Couples snuggle up with a hot drink underneath the mistletoe, with cozy Christmas music in the background.
But what if your significant other is hundreds of miles away? How can you sustain your long-distance relationship this holiday season?
Here are five tips on how to sustain your long distance relationship this holiday season.
1. COMMUNICATION IS KEY
The most important thing in any relationship is communication. This is especially true in long-distance relationships. As opposed to ‘normal’ couples, there won’t be times when you just sit next to each other, watching Netflix, and saying nothing for hours (wait.. that’s normal, right?).
If you are in a long-distance relationship, you are always looking forward to talk to your significant other. At Kiiroo, we conducted a survey among a 1000 Americans who are currently in or have been in a long-distance relationship. One of the findings was that long-distance couples, on average, send each other 343 texts a week. They also spend about 8 hours a week on video chat and phone calls with their partners.
When communicating with your long-distance partner, it’s not just important to talk about the big stuff. Research tells us that what makes a long-distance relationship work, is sharing lots of silly small details about your day. Maybe send a funny picture of a dog in a Christmas sweater you saw while on your way to work. Or talk about the tuna sandwich you had for lunch.
2. SEND THEM A PERSONAL CHRISTMAS GIFT PACKAGE
Even if you can’t be with your lover in person during the holidays, you can still be together in spirit, right? Surprise them by sending them a package filled with all their favorite Christmas goodies.
Maybe a new pair of cozy (or sexy) pajamas, some hot cocoa with marshmallows, and of course some cheesy Christmas movies the two of you can binge watch simultaneously.
Might I suggest my personal favorite: ‘Jingle All the Way’ with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Classic!
If you’re feeling particularly cheeky and want to give your partner something they’ll REALLY enjoy, why not add a new sex toy to your Christmas care package? Thank you, Santa!
3. SHOW THEM WHY YOU’RE ON SANTA’S NAUGHTY LIST
Just because you’re not physically together, doesn’t mean you can’t get some new sexy Christmas-themed lingerie! Get yourself all dolled up in your most seductive undergarments (red is always a good option) Or go really bold and wear nothing but a Santa hat.
Next, snap a picture of your lovely self and send this to your long-distance lover. Ooh, la la, what a sexy surprise!
If you want to spice things up, put on your naughty Christmas outfit before your planned video call and surprise your partner. Now there’s a good Christmas gift!
Tip! Just make sure that when you’re video calling, they’re alone at home. You don’t want to have parents or coworkers in the background, who can get a peep of the show as well!
4. DATING WITH YOUR LONG-DISTANCE PARTNER DURING THE HOLIDAYS
According to the respondents of our survey, the lack of physical intimacy is considered one of the greatest challenges in a long-distance relationship. Going on online dates, talking on the phone or video calling is not always enough. So make sure to arrange face-to-face meet-ups with your long-distance partner as often as possible.
If you can, try to meet your partner for a ‘real life’ date this Christmas. See each other again after such a long time, even if it’s just for a day or a night. It can really rekindle that flame.
5. SPICE UP YOUR LONG-DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP THIS CHRISTMAS WITH KIIROO
Maybe you’re one of the unfortunate ones. Maybe you and your partner are, for some reason, not able to meet up this holiday season. Bummer! But don't worry, you guys can still have a good old sexy time thanks to the wonders of modern technology.
Kiiroo’s interactive sex toys bring couples in long-distance relationships closer together on a sexual level than ever before! It will be like your partner is right there with you, making sweet, sweet love. Simply make sure that the two of you hook up your individual Kiiroo sex toys to the FeelConnect app.
Next, you can use the app to control your partner’s toy. When the woman’s toy (the Pearl 2 for example) strokes up and down your vagina, this will be felt in real-time in the man’s toy (such as the Launch).
Another option is to take full control. Arrange with your significant other who will be the one orchestrating the toy and who will be the one gleefully receiving the pleasure. Use the FeelConnect app to make your partner’s toy do your bidding.
Play the night away and forget about the distance just for one (holy) night.
