Virtual dates for Valentine’s Day

Before you even settle down for that virtual date, you need to make sure that things are straightened out. There should be no distractions whatsoever. Keep your phone out of sight and mind so that you can entirely focus on your date.

Skype call

One of the virtual date night ideas is calling up your partner over the phone and whispering sweet nothings to them is a surefire way to get the hair on both of your necks standing up at full mast, among other things. Tell your partner all of the things you miss about them physically. Tell them what you'd do to them if they were right there in front of you. Capitalize on all of the pent-up sexual tension between you two. Leverage the distance between you two to make you want each other more than anything else in the world. Don't worry about what you say exactly. Just focus on letting your partner know they're desired and that you're jumping at the bit to see them again.

Video call

Technology in our age has made it possible to still see your significant other face-to-face, even if it is not physical. There are many things to do in a long-distance relationship over Skype or using different platforms that support video calling. Schedule a time when the two of you are available and can be fully present for each other – a time when both of you can do something together.

On your video call, you could have a candlelit dinner where both of you can have a meal at the same time as you catch up. To make it even better, make sure that both of you dress up like you would if you were going on a real-life date. You should also factor in the time differences that might exist between the two of you or your work schedules.

Video calls are usually more personal than chatting or sending a text message. It can be as personal as spending the whole day together, only virtually. It can feel as though both of you are together in the same room. All you need to do is make sure that those gadgets you use for your video calls are plugged in.

Have a movie marathon

If the two of you love cuddling on the sofa as you enjoy some Netflix or a TV series, you can still make Valentine's Day fun and enjoy a movie marathon date with your partner. Select movies that you are planning to watch beforehand. Keeping with the Valentine's mood, a romantic flick or a romcom will do. You could also select from different genres and still have a romantic night. For the spirit, though, try ditching the horror flicks.

Create a romantic collage of your pictures and talk about it

Valentine's Day can be romantic even if your purse is not fat. One of the things you can do is make a collage, send it to one another, and then discuss it. This is a simple way for the two of you to bond as you discuss the pictures you sent one another and the memories that every photo elicits. Next, put together some images of the two of you and play your favorite song in the background. This is a simple yet very sentimental date. This will definitely elicit romantic and lasting emotions within your partner. To make this one of the fantastic virtual date ideas, add a few love notes that are personal to you both on each picture.

Make use of serenade services

When the distance becomes a barrier, one of the other cute online date ideas is to give your partner a treat that will be memorable. Yes, you might say that this isn't a virtual date, but do you know what? You can contact a company to serenade your partner as you have your video call. This can serve as a gift and an unexpected but pleasant surprise. The thing is, music says "I love you" better than any words ever could. Several companies specialize in making every occasion special – even Valentine's Day. So no matter how far the two of you are from each other, you can reach each other via song. All you need to do is select a song, and your special someone will be serenaded at the location of your choice as you watch their reaction via video call.

Use long-distance toys

It was only a matter of time before a company got together and figured out how to make sex toys that can transmit to one another to help people in long-distance relationships bridge the intimacy gap. Well, if your significant other won't be around, don't sweat it. Many couples have been using long-distance sex toys to keep the fun of their long-distance relationship interesting. The toys are Bluetooth-enabled toys. These allow one partner to control what the toy is doing through their cell phone. Apparently, they are pretty satisfying!  

Choosing the right thing to do when you are away from one another may not be as easy as you think. First, you need to consider your partner's interests, hobbies, and tastes. Then, give these virtual date ideas your personal twist and have a date that will be meaningful and that will convey your true feelings to your partner.

Make Valentine's Day all about celebrating and appreciating the love that exists between the two of you despite the distance. Remember that every single day is worth celebrating. So while you may not be together, you can celebrate Valentine's Day, the day you see each other, and make it worthwhile for both you and your partner.
