Calling all long-distance bees!
What are you doing for Valentine’s day if you can’t be with your SO/FI/DH? It sucks that sometimes flights are stupidly expensive and there’s just no way to be with your guy. I really want to do something fun with SO, but he’s in England and well… I’m not. We already Skype every night, but I want to do something that is special. I was thinking maybe getting dressed up for a date, making the same thing for lunch/dinner (time zones suck!) and having a long distance date? Does that sound too corny?

@CanadaMoose: As a long distance bee, that idea sounds adorable!
This will be our third Valentines day that we couldn’t spend together. I am baking him homemade biscottis, packaging them nicely, and shipping them over with a card. My fiancé loves drinking tea at night and I know he’ll love having them to snack on when he’s enjoying a cup, or three.

We’ve never had a Valentine’s together, and we’ve never done much. Maybe mail a card, watched a film, and Skyped is all. This year we’re not doing anything because I’m moving to his country just a few days after (yay!), so we’ll celebrate then.
I think it would be cute to make the same dish for lunch/dinner. We’ve considered that before. Then maybe Skype a bit through dinner. Then follow up with a movie you both love? Maybe curl up in bed “together” with Skype in the background.
And of course send stuff. Find the biggest card in the store. Send some local goodies the other likes (he’d send me Cadbury’s and chocolate digestives).

Even when we are together we never make a big deal of Vday, but since it’s our first married one I was thinking of doing something nice. I probably won’t go all out date night style, but I alwasy think it’s a little extra special when I mail him something. I usually hand make a card (my creations are terrible looking). Maybe I’ll hand make and old fashioned valentines day card and pop it in the mail?
Or maybe I’ll send him an email with a 14 things I love about you or something.
Bah. I’ll probably forget and do nothing.

I dont think its corny at all… thats what im doing… We will make the same thing for dinner and eat it together while skyping… I may even do a little dance or something before i say good night… Vday is honestly what you make it whether together or apart. Its really up to you! so make it fun!!

@CanadaMoose: Sorry it’s a few days late, but me and FI did a long distance facetime date on Sunday! We “went out” for ice cream to our local dairy queens and got blizzards and enjoyed them when we each got home haha. We also sent each other gifts in the mail and will be going on an actual date when he returns home next month 🙂 but I don’t think it is cheesy at all to do a long distance date at all, we had a lot of fun doing it actually
