Long Distance Relationship Challenges: 26 ideas to keep you busy for half the year
Enough to keep you busy half a year
During our LDR, we were both afraid that routine would break our relationship.
Some days, it was even quite complicated. During the lockdown in March 2020, there was nothing new going on in our lives: work for me, studies for Kyomi.
Not much things to talk about.
But we didn’t let it get us down!
We fought for our long distance relationship to stand the test of time. That’s why I decided to do something about it. And it changed everything.
I created a list of 26 long distance relationship challenges and activities to do together, in long distance:
One year has 52 weeks
One idea done every week = 6 months of challenges and activities
One idea done every two weeks = 1 year of challenges and activities.
And the last challenge was the week we got together.
It was beautiful! I’m sure I saw tears of joy when I told her that the last challenge we would do it together, in the same room (Spoiler Alert: it was the magic tricks).
I really wish all long distance couples could have moments like that. It’s magical!
My advice for these long distance relationship challenges:
To make this even more fun and help you all pull it off, here are some tips to follow:
- Tell your partner that you have a list of activities/challenges.
- Announce that at the end of this list, when all the ideas are done, he/she will get a gift (for me, this was my arrival!).
- Agree on a rhythm: 1 per week / 1 every 2 weeks / 1 per month…
- Tell him/her to choose a number between 1 and 26 each time, in a random way, to choose the next activity.
