Just because you live far away from your partner, doesn’t mean you can’t still have dates! You’ll just need to have them online! There are tons of ways to keep your long distance romance alive while being apart. One of which is having online dates – Yes, this is a thing! As someone who has been in a long distance relationship for years, I’ve had countless online dates with my boyfriend… I used to search for the best long distance date ideas, and now from being in a relationship for over 4 years, I’ve made up some long distance relationship date ideas of my own!
Here are 5 online date ideas for you and your partner!
- Movie date
- Dinner date
- Play a board game
- Take online quizzes
- Sit and chat
1. Watch the same film
There are a few ways to watch a movie with your partner at the same exact time. One way is a website called ‘rabb.it’ – where you can simultaneously watch a film. Basically, it’s one screen that you virtually share. The only downside is that it could sometimes get laggy. Another way to have an online movie date is to start Netflix at the same time on both of your accounts. Yes, this is much more difficult since you’re not exactly sharing a screen, but once you both start the movie at the same second, it’ll be in sync! (Just remember not to pause, because their screen will continue to play while yours is stopped!)
2. Cook / eat the same meal
One of the many things you’ll miss while being away from your partner are romantic dinner dates. So, to feel closer to your partner during your time apart, you can have an online dinner date! The best way to do this is to cook the same meal at the same time. Time differences can be a pain, so both of you need to plan your meals around your schedule. If you both love pasta, cook pasta (and Skype while doing so) – Or, if you’re like Gordon Ramsay, go ahead and cook a 3-course meal! Once your meals are done, you can sit down with your phone in front of you, and video chat while you eat. It’ll feel like you’re at a virtual restaurant together!
3. Play a board game together
Who doesn’t love a good ole game night? Pick a game… Whether it’s something like Monopoly, or the Game of Life, grab it and set it up in front of you. Considering board games require two people, and your partner isn’t physically there, you’re going to have to take their turn, too. However, while doing so, you’ll be video-chatting with your partner, so even though you’ll be rolling for them, it’s technically their turn! They’re still included in the game! To keep it simple, you can even just play a game of truth or dare… Who knows, it might even get a little frisky!

5. Sit and chat
As boring as this may sound to you, this might be the most intimate date you can have with your partner. Take however long you’d like to talk them, and just chat about absolutely anything that comes to mind. In doing so, you’ll learn so much more about each other, and who knows, you might surprise each other with information neither of you knew! It’ll bring you closer, and you’ll feel more connected.
