Life’s too short to stay tense. Do a few things you can remember and laugh about before kids start sprawling around and school and hospital bills piling your dining table. After honeymoon, all of your times together may be a math class.
Take her for mountain ride – do you own a motorbike or a bicycle? Good for you!
Take sis Janet Jackson on a free ride to feel the breeze. Ride through the mountains like nobody’s business.
Take a mountain walk – for the sake of the brothers who are still leg-ridding, there’s nothing wrong walking the mountains together.
Personally, I’m not a bike fan, I prefer walking through those mountains or on the railway together.
Besides I do tickle her now and then as we walk. Too much chocolate to describe online! Try it!
Buy her chocolate – if you don’t have an idea how chocolate tastes, you won’t figure out the previous point.
To understand the second point, I want you to buy her chocolate. Don’t hide it for her to magically locate.
Feed her, by that, you can also have a taste and know what it is to take a mountain walk.
Ask about what she learned at lectures – if she is still in college call her on phone or if she is home ask her to brief you on the topic she studied at lectures.
This is beyond romance. This makes you her right life partner. It shows your support for her.
Buy her airtime – there’s nothing wrong sending her airtime.
It doesn’t matter if she can buy a thousand scratch cards. “Things we do for love”
Letter writing – long before the internet and its social media cholesterol, including smartphone apps, letter writing was the best approach.
Go old school, pick a pen, get official paper, express your emotions and how you feel about her on paper.
Parcel it in that old romantic letter envelope. Hand it over in person. I bet she won’t forget this.
For me, I couldn’t stand any girl. No courage to look anyone in the eyes and speak love, I resorted to letter and note writings.
Gone were the days! Hihihi!
Grab the microphone – don’t want to become John Legend? “figuratively”.
I do not mean you should become a songwriter or professional singer.
But if you do have music skills, sing her favorite song when you are together.
Compose her a song with simple words.
Watch the moon at night – sound like another old school technique?
Yes! If there’s any location which is void of electrical energy and the only form of light is the moon, find a log of wood, sit and watch the moon together.
No wonder our fathers and mothers felt what is called “true love”. Its why Shakespeare always hard it right.
Sing the national anthem of your country – when was the last time you sang your nation’s anthem.
Find a day to do it. I bet you going to get into trouble.
You can’t sing that anthem perfectly, can you?
Get creative – are you good at drawing? Draw your girlfriend. Get together and make decorations with papers especially on Christmas holidays.
Or create your own Halloween scary shapes. Do It Yourself (DIY).
Story telling – what we missing out on love and family today is putting ourselves in the story or telling our own stories.
The Television stole all from us. And we stranded looking for how to be satisfied in our homes.
TV gives us impression that life’s rosy. We watch beautiful love at first sight relationships and try to imitate them.
What they fail to tell us is life, isn’t that lollipop. Life is wedding cake. Bitter and sweet side.
Write her name in style – when I happen to admire a lady, I unintentionally design her name.
But this always weighs. You wouldn’t usually line art people’s names unless they mean a lot to you.
Remember her birthday – honor her birthday. Always make her birthday special and tell her something special or send her birthday gift card.
Take her to your office – in case she is on leave, you can let her accompany you to your office and teach her the work you do.
Notice her – don’t stop telling her how beautiful she is.
When men fight to woo a woman, they spill every nice word they can find in romantic novels, once they get what they want, the novels are shelved.
Let her know you still value what you saw from the onset.
Consider gardening – own a garden? Work together in your garden. Plant, hoe, harvest together.

- People move on quickly without you – when engaging someone in a long distance relationship; you should have in mind that people easily replace you and get going with their lives when you are not available.

How Can I Be Romantic in A Long Distance Relationship?
Date very often – if you are having high-speed internet, arrange virtual date from time to time.
Should it be via video, make sure you put everything necessary for a date together.
Perhaps, you can both go to a spot, turn your cameras on live, order some drink, sip as you chat over.
If you prefer staying indoor, you can setup your room, get some candle burning, or dim the light, get dressed, turn on the camera and exchange words and laugh together.
You can even go to a theatre or watch your favorite sport. You don’t need a camera to get this work or it doesn’t have to be a video.
You don’t actually need any setup, just relax, have it at the back of your mind this is a date and talk on phone or chat.
Say things you would on normal date.
Don’t always talk on the phone – you can both be on the phone without exchanging words.
Very often when we are on phone, because we can’t see each other, we want to always say something to inform the other person we available.
With your partner, at times you have to try to impersonate regular life where you can be around your spouse without discussion.
Video chores – what is video chore? A video chore is a footage of your daily errands in the house intended to impress your partner in a distance relationship.
For example, washing the dishes, arranging furniture in the living room, sweeping the compound, cooking, bathing your child, gardening etc.
It could also be a live broadcast.
Visit family – if your partner has a family in your city, visit them especially weekends e.g. his/her parents, siblings or a family she was close to before relocating.
You shouldn’t do this very often but it creates a bond.
How to Do A Video Chore
Step #1: Plan your activity. Mostly, a video chore should be about house chore. But it can be almost anything you find interesting.
For instance, Anthony Lincoln taking a video of himself in his vegetable garden to send to his girlfriend Gloria who works in different city.
Step #2: inform your spouse, if it’s a live recording.
Step #3: Setup your camera. You don’t need to order for a professional camera.
It could be your phone camera. If you want the video in HDD format, you can use a professional camera.
Step #4: Press go on your camera to start recording.
Step #5: Start by saying hello to your partner.
Introduce her to what you are about to do or what you are doing e.g. if you preparing food, tell her the kind of food you preparing.
If it is a live recording, provide space that she can as well communicate.
Step #6: Say something nice to wrap up e.g. so, that brings us to the end of this video chore, stay tune for more, I can stop loving you, can’t wait to meet you etc.
Step #7: press the stop button to end the recording.
Step #8: Send him or her a copy.
You can decide to edit your video chore with a video editor before forwarding. Get a free video editor for a simple work if you are on budget.
You can also go for pro software if you want to.
Remember, a video chore should be done during weekends or when you both free if it’s a live broadcast.

Every Day Is My Birthday
The very moment you walked through that door; I knew I found my soulmate
You blessed me with love, thought my heart the strength in partnership
Brought me under your shade as hen gathers chicken in harmattan
Laid me on bed of roses, encouraged my night weapon, armored me for the journey of lovers
Breathe ice on my flesh, and warm my heart with your hands
Lady, you soaked my body into your blood of oneness
Tiled my life with sweetness
Prepared me my favorite diet, fed me with the spoon in your mouth
Covered me in your well-endowed, pleasing curves
When I had no one, you purchased me with your father’s treasure
Tattooed your pleasure against my neck
Cannot remember those dried, lonely nights
Every day is my birthday
