Watching romantic movies with your loved one while cuddling and eating delicious snacks is always a fun activity for a relaxed evening. But when you’re in a long distance relationship, that’s a different story… Chances are, you haven’t seen your partner in weeks or even months. So you deeply miss the feeling of holding their hands and sensing their touch.
But there is good news for you…
Missing your loved one so much and longing for a kiss or a hug, brings you this unique special sensation that other couple who are always together miss out or take for granted. So even though you may not get the chance to cuddle on the couch together tonight, you can watch one of the inspiring romantic movies below that will bring you a sweet smile, while feeling warm and loved inside.
Because the truth is, love is love. And it is REAL. Whether it’s sitting next to you on the couch… or 5,000 miles away.
So here you go…
1. The Notebook
One of the best (if not THE best) romance stories about true love and the fact that it will last a lifetime – despite unlucky circumstances that would normally break typical couples up.
2. Love Actually
Beautiful story of the ups and downs we face in the path of love. Because the truth is, this journey may not always be sweet and happy. Sometimes it brings us tears and heartbreaks. But at the end of the day, it’s the lessons we learn from these experiences that helps us stay strong and keep our faith in love.
And you know better than anyone else, that in the journey of long distance love, faith in each other and keeping our hopes alive is more important than ever. It may be tempting some days to lose track of it. So movies like Love Actually are a helpful reminder for this fact.
This movie follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely and interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.
So who says love is only as long as “death do us part”? Now here is a lovely movie that proves otherwise.
And the idea of your partner’s presence right next to you – even while they’re far away – is a great touch for us folks in a long distance relationship.
4. You’ve Got Mail
Have you met your partner online? Or perhaps you first met in person but now for some reason you are apart and in touch online. Then you’ll enjoy relating to this sweet story. It’s an oldie but goodie that warms you up with smiles all along.
5. 13 Going On 30
I don’t know why, but there is something special about this movie that keeps you smiling and feeling butterflies inside. It brings back to life our young teenage spirit… to fall for someone and get those sexy butterflies in our stomach again. You know?
6. 50 First Dates
When you and your loved one are away, the lack of physical connection can cause distance between you over time.
That’s why the idea behind this brilliant movie makes even more sense. Even while being far away, you can plan fun creative ways to “go on a date” together and spice things up. Making up for the distance, this movie gives you the perfect inspiration to keep the passion alive!
7. Like Crazy
Anna and Jacob fall instantly in love when they meet as students at an L.A. university. But Anna is British and when graduation approaches, Anna decides to stay and violate her student visa rather than returning to England. After a visit home, she is then unable to return to the United States. While fighting customs and immigration battles, Anna and Jacob must decide if their relationship is worth the distance and the hardship.
8. The Holiday
Two women troubled with guy problems swap homes in each other’s countries, where they each meet a local guy and fall in love. An uplifting story about having faith that love is just around the corner.
9. P.S. I Love You
Holly Kennedy is beautiful, smart and married to the love of her life – a passionate, funny, and impetuous Irishman named Gerry. So when Gerry’s life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. The only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly better than Gerry.
So it’s a good thing he planned ahead. Before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a series of letters that will guide her, not only through her grief but in rediscovering herself. The first message arrives on Holly’s 30th birthday in the form of a cake, and to her utter shock, a tape recording from Gerry, who proceeds to tell her to get out and “celebrate herself”.
In the weeks and months that follow, more letters from Gerry are delivered in surprising ways, each sending her on a new adventure and each signing off in the same way; P.S. I Love You.
10. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Now, this is a brilliant movie that is talked about far less than it deserves. This is one of those stories that shows you a deep message… and once you get it, you’ll have an amazing “Aha!” moment.
The fun part is, this is NOT your typical feel-good movie. This is indeed a deeper and more profound story of how we may sometimes get tired of someone and in the spur of the moment, think it’s better to end things and leave. Sometimes we may even wish to erase that person from our entire memory.
So what if you could actually do that? What would happen if you’d erase your ex from your past – as if you never met him/her?
