Nothing can stop you and your partner from having the most romantic Valentine's Day. You may live far apart, but you've become pros at planning virtual dates, complete with candles, fun games, and flirty looks. These virtual Valentine's Day ideas will sweeten up your online hangout for the most intimate day of the year.
On Valentine's Day, you and your partner might usually exchange gifts on your living room floor and eat chocolate while watching a rom-com. You may enjoy a candlelit dinner at your favorite restaurant or whipping up a delicious pasta dinner at home. Unfortunately, you won't be able to do those activities with your partner in person this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Travel guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which were updated as of Dec. 3, 2020, state that staying home and avoiding contact with anyone who's not in your immediate household is the best way to protect yourself from potentially spreading and/or contracting the coronavirus. The CDC recommends celebrating virtually for special occasions this winter, and that's what you and your partner plan on doing.
You're all about a romantic and simple night at home, which is why all you really need is your laptop, lots of love, and these virtual Valentine's Day ideas to enjoy with your SO. These activities are easy to put together and will add just the right amount of sweetness to your long-distance date.
