In the past, lovers used to send each other love letters that, despite obstacles and distance, kept their relationship vibrant. This way, the long waiting period till they could see each other again seemed bearable.
Today, the internet is the new messenger for the lonely ones, the ones searching for a relationship or persons that want to communicate with distant friends or lovers.
Aside from words, in a face to face encounter partners exchange gestures, looks, caresses, inviting each other to go on. The look in her eyes can encourage you; his smile can show you how happy he is to be in your company.
Distance relationships don’t give you the advantage of seeing the gestures and reactions of the other person. You are never quite certain that your message will be appreciated. There are many factors that influence the chances to receive an answer that can live up to expectations. Despite this reality, you must use wisely the minimum of control you hold.
When sending that email, you must create an adequate atmosphere by choosing an appealing subject for your email. Write something like “For your eyes only” or “To read when you need me”.
You must always state clearly your desires and be much more forward online than in real life. If you are not, the other person might think you have forgotten everything you had.
Creating a romantic atmosphere over the internet can be tricky, but if you both want it, it can be done. All you have to do is help each other. If you are trying to understand the other person’s reaction, just test them. Send emails that use a personal tone, full of big words and somehow try to set them in an imaginary romantic and ideal world. Some world you can now refer to as your world, a world that might appeal to your interlocutor.
If you have an email describing events from your friends life, pay attention to them. Try to show you really read the email by referring to each and every moment described in a different sentence. Have opinions and give advice.
When romantically corresponding, you must rise above your real experiences. If in real life you are shy, here you are not allowed to. Just relax and create a romantic atmosphere in your communications and the right words will appear themselves.
