Miles Apart. Still Close at Heart: Advice for Truckers on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Advice #1: Handwritten Cards
Remember when getting mail in an actual mailbox wasn’t anything special? Well thanks to the internet and advancement in technology, the thought of getting a handwritten card in the mail nowadays is actually pretty exciting! And sending a card to your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day might just be that little special touch he or she needed to brighten their day.
Valentine’s Advice #2: Wake-up Call
Of course, nothing can beat breakfast in bed with your sugar, however, when you’re on the road a wake-up call can be just as great! Why not start the day with a call to wish your special somebody a “Happy Valentine’s Day” and to let them know you’re thinking about them? We think it’s a great idea!
Valentine’s Advice #3: Traveling Pictures
During a typical day, how many miles do you say you travel? You probably go through quite a lot of cities and states, right? Why not take a picture of yourself at every rest stop and send it to your special someone, wishing them love from all over the country. Hey, it’s not Valentine’s Day without cheesy moments!
Valentine’s Advice #4: Plan a Date
Maybe you can’t be there in person, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip out on sharing a date. Lucky for us (well, most people), technology has made being apart from each other a little bit easier. With features like FaceTime or Skype, you can have a face-to-face conversation with someone although you’re miles away. So cook a meal, sit down, and enjoy a nice dinner date over the phone.
Valentine’s Advice #5: Movie Night
So after dinner, why not enjoy a nice movie together? OK, stop looking at your screen like I’ve lost my mind. Thanks to apps like Google Hangouts or Synaptop, you and your partner can now share a movie together. How cool is that?
Valentine’s Advice #6: Flowers
This is an easy one! Who doesn’t love getting flowers or some type of sweet gift to remind them just how special they are to someone. So before you leave, be sure to put in an order of a dozen roses or chocolates to have delivered to your special someone on Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Advice #7: Postpone the Fun
OK, so what if none of these suggestions really suit you, what are you going to do now? Well, who says Valentine’s Day has to be on February 14th? That’s right, no one! Why not save all your Valentine fun on a day you come back to town? Nothing wrong with that, my friend!
