Having a long distance relationship for 7 years, it was important to keep the romance alive. It's difficult when your lover is over 1,000 miles away. We would make each other things and mail them. We would sketch pictures about our relationship. We would draw little cartoon drawings of us living happily together. I would burn a mix CD with love songs that reminded me of our relationship with a copy of the lyrics. I would also send a copy of love quote collections. Some of my favorites include:
Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great. - Roger de Bussy-Rabutin
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. - Judy Garland
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Our love is like the wind... I can't see it, but I sure can feel it. -A Walk to Remember
You're a song, written by the hands of God. Shakira
Although technology makes long distance relationships more workable, writing beautifully written letters that took you a lot of time and love to write mean a lot. It's old fashion but it's exciting to wait for the letter in the mail from you lover.
