SO is in the navy, I've known him for 5 years almost but we just started dating last week a couple days after he left from leave. What I'm wondering is what kind of things can we do to keep the romance? I still want to be able to be intimate with him even though he's 10 hours away. Any chance I can make that happen?? lol
Sending each other random things in the mail: whether it be a card, a hand written note, a little gift.
Surprise sexy pics.
Watching a movie at the same time and skyping while doing it (kinda like a long distance movie night)
Those are things DH and I did while he was in Okinawa and then did some of them while he was in Afghan.
*edit* towards the end we "upgraded" from sexy pics...to sexy vids.
Send letters, chat online if you can and use a web cam. When my husband and I were first dating we would have web cam dates. He would put on a movie and set up web cam so we could watch it together or we would both have a meal together during chatting online.
Snail mail is truly romantic when people take the time to do it. I cherish every single one of my husband's letters and he still has mine as well.
As for sexting and all of that, I would say avoid photos unless they don't include your face because A.) He's surrounded by horny nerds who can hack into just about anything and many of them are bored or angry and see no qualms with posting something like that for the world to see B.) It could reflect on him poorly and impact his career C.) Smurf just isn't that great to begin with. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the occasional hot photo, but people who include their faces and identifying marks are just asking for it later on down the road.
In summation, send him enticing photos, write him letters, and talk to him whenever he's able to get online. You can always get some nice lingerie for a Skype session or ten too.
