Lately I seam to be the go to person for advice, so some of my sages of wisdom will be reproduced on the blog
So as regular readers will know, I am in a long-distance relationship. I live about 144km away from himself and as we both depend on public transport it takes about 2hrs plus for us to travel to see each other.
So I was recently asked, by someone else in a long-distance relationship for some advice on Valentines Day. It was uncanny, but it was asked on Wednesday night, when Russell and myself were celebrating a “pseudo Valentines Day”. Yes a pseudo Valentines Day.
Why did we do this? This was our first Valentines together so I wanted it to be something sspecial.Also before I saw him on Monday, the last time I had seen Russell was the 2nd of January which was a full month since I had seen him! As after thius week we didnt know when we would see each other again, so we decided that while he was up we would celebrate our Valentines Day. It was also a chance for me to spoil him after his exams.
We did the whole proper thing, we exchanged cards, we went out to dinner (Fenns Quay, divine!) and now to me if does feel like Valentines Day has passed.
Being in a long distance relationship is not easy, but planning and dedication (and of course love!) will help. So celebrating events like Valentines Day when you can get time together is how it should be done.
Russell and myself actually liked this idea so much we have decided that we will celebrate Valentines Day on the 4th of February every year. So that it will be our day.
So if your not going to be with your loved one on Valentines Day, have your own!
