Updated March 20, 2024by Regain Editorial Team

Texting can be an important tool in any relationship, but it can be especially important if you and your partner are long-distance. Using texting as a way to stay connected, feel closer, and cultivate consistent communication can be very powerful in a long-distance relationship. Research even suggests that couples with similar texting habits tend to be happier and more fulfilled. But, sometimes it can be hard to find the right words, and you may even feel like you’ve run out of things to say. If you’re looking for new, creative ways to make your partner feel loved and special even from a distance, read on for a few ideas for messages to consider.

Types of texts you can send

Take a look at some of these suggestions below to help you create thoughtful, personable messages for your long-distance partner:

1. Positivity

Positivity can be very important for a long-distance relationship. This doesn’t mean that you have to hide when you’re feeling down, but on good days when you’re feeling really happy to be in your relationship, it can be valuable to express how you feel. For instance, you could say something like, “Good morning! I’m so happy you are in my life.” This sends a message of joy and love to your partner and makes it clear you enjoy having them in your life, regardless of the distance between you. Long-distance can be hard sometimes; infusing some positivity may help to brighten both your moods. 

2. Reassurance

Going along with positivity is the reassurance that you want the relationship. When the distance feels long, and the days between seeing each other feel never-ending, both sides could probably use the reassurance that the relationship is still something you want to pursue. You can send something as simple as “I really care about you and value this relationship. I am committed to making it work.” Those words can help your partner feel confident about your feelings toward the relationship, even when the distance makes things tough.


3. Vulnerability

Romantic relationships are often characterized as the relationship that you can be your total and complete self in. This person is the one you can say anything to. Your worst fears, your deepest desires, and your pet peeves are all welcome in the conversation. For long-distance relationships, it can be hard to fit all of that in while you are together. Texting those same feelings can still bring you that closeness. Being vulnerable is still possible over text; you can express your honest feelings, your worries, your hopes, and more. 

4. Your plans

You likely want your partner to feel a part of your life, and one way you can do this is to let them know about the important things you are doing throughout the day. You can also ask your partner to tell you about their plans. This way, you can feel more connected throughout even the mundane parts of your day, and you can feel more involved in each other’s lives despite the distance. Also, if you have upcoming plans to see each other, you can text about your excitement for those, with something like, “I can’t wait to come to visit you in a month.” Building up to those moments of reunion can make them even sweeter.

5. Check-ins

For the exciting moments, the scary moments, and the frustrating moments they might experience, you can send a simple message to “check-in” with your partner. You can ask them how they feel and if there’s anything you can do to be there for them. This can give your partner the opportunity to ask for what they need. If you know they had a long night, sending them a morning text asking how they are feeling might give them added strength for the day ahead. If you know they had a stressful day at work, you can check in and ask how they’re feeling and if there’s anything you can do to help them relax.

6. Intimacy

Intimacy can be an important piece of any relationship, including in long-distance relationships. While the distance can add hurdles to cultivating intimacy, it is certainly still possible to build intimacy with your long-distance partner. This applies to physical intimacy as well as emotional intimacy. If physical intimacy is a part of your relationship, you and your partner may decide that you’d like to experiment with flirting and more over the phone. And for emotional intimacy, you might decide to set aside certain times for long, intentional, deeper conversations to build on that emotional connection.

How counseling can help

You can think about texting as laying the groundwork for the foundation of your relationship. It’s not the end all be all, and it doesn’t replace in-person communication, but it can help between the long waits before you see your loved one again.

If you are in a long-distance relationship and would like some help communicating or strengthening your connection, online therapy can help. Research has demonstrated that online therapy can be effective for improving relationship satisfaction

With long-distance relationships, online therapy may be especially useful, because you and your partner don’t have to be in the same room to get the help you need.
