With Valentine’s Day around the corner, many truckers won’t be home to spend the holiday with their significant other. However, that doesn’t mean truck drivers can’t still celebrate.
Here are a few long distance date ideas for truckers that go beyond sending flowers and chocolates.
Have Dinner Together on Skype
Just because you may be miles away doesn’t mean you can’t take a few minutes to enjoy a great dinner together via Skype or FaceTime. Plan what you both will eat together, set up your computer or phone, and eat together as if you were right next to each other.
Share a Private Spotify Playlist
Are there songs that instantly remind you of your significant other? Put these on a Spotify playlist and share it with your significant other. Consider just keeping the playlist private between the two of you to be able to listen to throughout the year.
Plan Future Dates
Brainstorm a list of the 5 top dates you both want to do once you are home. Try to make sure to plan dates for all seasons and weather. Plan out the dates and even mark them down on the calendar to give you both something fun to look forward to.
Watch a Movie Together
Just because you’re not together doesn’t mean you can’t still watch a great movie together. Pick a movie out beforehand, plan the time you both will hit play, and talk about the movie together over the phone. Pop some popcorn, grab your favorite snacks, and enjoy!
Play 20 Questions
Get to know your significant other more by playing a quick game of 20 questions. Some questions could include where is your dream vacation spot, what would your perfect day look like, what was your dream job when you were in kindergarten, and what exotic pet would you have.
We wish truckers and their significant others across the country a very Happy Valentine’s Day and we hope these date ideas help make the day special.
