Talk everyday

Indeed distance does make the heart grow fonder but at the same time you still need to constantly communicate with each other to keep in the loop. With the help of technology, you could both be in different parts of the world but still able to see each other everyday by making use of app’s like Skype or Facetime to communicate.

Send photos

Remember, the idea is to make the partner who’s away feel as involved as much as possible even when they’re away. Little things like sending a picture of tourists attractions, museums, and the hotel where you’re staying mean the most. Of course you need to add a bit of kinkiness while you’re at it. A picture of you dressed in your sexy lingerie with a ‘come back soon’ text will sure have him rushing home.

Celebrate important dates

You being away from each other doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate important dates like birthdays, anniversaries or special holidays. If it means celebrating in advance then so be it, but ensure that on the actual day you still do something. A surprise delivery, text, or call will definitely make your partner’s day.

Share details

Sharing your trip with your partner shows that he’s constantly in your mind. Let your partner know of the things that remind you of him. It could be a restaurant that you’re at or certain dishes that you know he would enjoy. Who knows, you might travel back to the place as a couple to experience it together.

Make surprise visits

This will of course depend on the type of business trip you’re on. Once in a while, it’s always good to catch your man by surpise and vice versa. Come back sooner than he had initially anticipated. This will definitely surprise him and make his day.
