Connecting from Afar: Long Distance Intimacy
We’ve heard our amazing MedAmour folks loud and clear- how on earth do we maintain intimacy if we’re away from our partner? Now more than ever, couples and partners alike are dipping their toes into long distance connection. Of course, technology can only get you so far, the most important factor in keeping your spark alive is you! Through our own efforts and the technology we have, passing this time away from our loved one is much easier.
Make Time for Intimacy
Realize you must make the time to connect digitally when you are apart. Some partners connect by default since they may live together, but many of us may be separated for various reasons. Amidst having a loose schedule at home, we can sometimes forget to put connection and effort to our partners first. Whether it’s an hour a day to catch up, or scheduling a digital date night/ sensual video call- the effort counts!
A quick good morning call, afternoon catch up, or phone date can really set the tone in staying connected. Talk about the current and future together, and compliment your partner on the things you love about them. Excited for your next visit with your partner? Tell them! Getting sensual over the phone is exciting too- the power of our words is unprecedented. Exchanging descriptive, action filled words of fantasy over the phone is a way to build anticipation. Express to your partner your desire for them, only going as far as comfortable. Check in along the way the see how you both feel about exploring this form of connection.
