Keep your relationship goals on point
Dating can be hard, and now dating during a quarantine just complicates things. It is possible to maintain your relationship, and even keep it moving forward in the coming months. If you’re already at the stage in your relationship where you live together read this article on how to maintain your personal space during the quarantine. But, for the rest of you, here are a few suggestions.
You can talk all day long over text or audio calls, but not physically seeing your significant other may feel like your relationship is on hold. Facetime is going to be the next best thing to seeing people in real life. If you are not an iPhone user, no need to worry. You can use Skype, or WhatsApp to make video calls to your significant other.
Go on a virtual date
Use Facetime, Skype or WhatsApp to go on a long walk outside with each other, watch a movie, or even get takeout from the same place. I’m not sure about you, but nothing sounds more romantic than a Whataburger meal, a facetime call, and the stars of the Texas sky. If that’s not your scene, then facetime your significant other and use a plugin called “Netflix Party” This app allows you to watch a movie together when you are, well, not together.
The longer you’ve been dating the more important it is to keep up with communication, and that means talking every day. This one is more subjective to your situation and how long you’ve been dating. For example, talking every day is not as important for new couples but it can definitely help you get to know your partner better. It can even help move things along. But you don’t want to come off too clingy, so find that special middle ground!
These are just some of my suggestions for maintaining a healthy, long-lasting relationship during these unprecedented times. Remember to stay safe, and healthy!
