With all the ads, promos and posts directed to dates for two, being in a long distance relationship reminds you of your loneliness without your significant other.

Tell them you miss them and how much you want to be with them. Ask your partner how they’re doing, and talk about the future you have planned for each other. Nothing says love more than hearing one’s voice on Valentine’s Day.

  1. Setup a virtual date
