If you’re in a long distance relationship, then you know that level of happiness you get when you hear that your partner is coming to visit you! Having your boyfriend or girlfriend travel to where you live is so exciting! They’ll get to see where you stay, try out your favorite local food, do some fun activities, etc! So, to make sure you’re prepared for their trip…
Here is a list of 10 things to do with your partner when they visit!
1. Show them around your town
This might sound boring to you, but I can guarantee that your partner is going to be super excited to do this! Considering you live in your town every single day, this activity might not interest you, or sound fun at all… However, this is all new to your partner. They may have FaceTimed you as you were out, saw it through the phone, but never in person. So, show them what it’s really like!
2. Bring them to your favorite local restaurant
This is a win-win. You get to go to your favorite restaurant, and your partner gets to experience it! Plus, you both get filled up with delicious food! If you go to the restaurant often, then you might be familiar with the waiters. They may know you by name, and perhaps even know about your long distance relationship! So, now they get to meet your partner in person, and your partner gets to try out your favorite place! (It might even end up even being their new favorite restaurant!)
3. Introduce them to your friends
Chances are you’re going to want to spend as much alone time with your partner as you can… But, I’m sure you want your partner wants to meet your friends, and vice versa. At the end of the day, you know for a fact that your bestie wants to meet your LDR partner so they can approve of them! So, set up a day for your friends to come over, or even set up a time to go out to dinner with your partner and your buddies! Your worlds will finally collide!
4. Have a in-home movie night
Alright, back to the alone time! Instead of going out anywhere and meeting up with other people, just take some time to be alone. Get some popcorn, a cozy blanket, and dim the lights… It’s time for movie night! This is a much more intimate task – it’s just you, your partner, and your favorite movies. Personally, this is one of my favorite things to do when my partner comes to visit!
5. Go for a road trip
It’s time to ditch the town! Get in your car, and put the key in the ignition! Drive to a nearby city, or as weird as it sounds, just drive aimlessly. You never know what things you’ll come across, you’ll make amazing memories on the road, and you can blast your favorite music together and sing your hearts out. Road trips are always guaranteed to be a fun time. So, get driving!
6. Cook dinner together
If you’re like me, then you’ll know this is much easier said than done. The only thing I know how to ‘cook’ is cereal! This could be a really fun activity to do together. You can learn something new, and afterwards, enjoy something that you made together. (If you’re not the best cook, then good luck in advance!)
7. Play card games
This is a fun way to get to know each other more! Plus, who doesn’t love game nights? Whether it’s a silly game, a question game to learn more about one another, or just an intense game like Cards Against Humanity, you’re bound to have a good time!
8. HAVE A PAINT NIGHT
Don’t worry – you don’t have to be a professional artist for this activity! Grab some canvases and paint, then try to recreate an image together. If that’s not something of interest, then try to paint a photo of one another, or just an image of whatever comes to your mind! When you’re done, you’ll both have a physical item to keep forever!
9. VISIT A BEACH AND WATCH THE SUNSET
This is something straight out of a movie! Drive to your nearest beach, put down a blanket, and watch the sunset together. It’s a super romantic activity with a stunningly beautiful view. Plus, you can sneak in some gorgeous couple photos!
10. HANG OUT WITH YOUR FAMILY
While your partner is visiting, you’ll want them to see your family! This helps to ensure that they maintain a good relationship with your family, and it will help them become closer to each other.
