When Boredom Strikes


Long Distance Relationship can sometimes be boring. We need to look for things to let our love alive in the relationship. Let’s say Nigel is a kind of person who cannot start a conversation so mostly our Skype video calls are quite and he is doing something and I am doing my own thing. I am not exactly bored with every Skype video calls that we do but there are times that I feel that he feels bored in our relationship. I tried to talk to him about it and he said sorry about it and he is not bored with our relationship. Okay, well yeah I do think he isn’t bored but we need to find ways to be fun and I don’t want to end up that I will say or he will say our relationship is boring. I tried to look for in Google and ask some of my friends what to do so there will be no boredom in a relationship. One of my friends that are in a long term relationship she said that we shouldn’t feel bored in the relationship because sometimes it leads to break ups and I don’t want that to happen. It should be fun and exciting. She told me to add spice on it. I told her that if Nigel is here probably I will cut off the cord of his PlayStation and focus on me. There are times that Nigel is too focus on his game and I am talking but he can’t hear me so what I do I end the call and not replying to him. I hate being ignored especially if that person is special to me. I don’t want to start an argument about it too. I told him about it and he feels bad about what he do. My friend share some tips on how long distance relationship can be fun and not feel bored with your relationship.

  • Keep finding things to talk about. Since Nigel is not talkative and can’t start a conversation so usually I tried to find topics that we can talk about. We usually talk about everything under the sun even if the topic is “kinda” sensitive for the both of us. It can help him focus more on me than his game.


  • Upload games that you can both play. Since he is addicted to games so we tried to download a game that we can play together. It is “Tekken” so sometimes we can match up and it is fun because we can get to send message in there, too. I am trying to look for more phone games that we can upload and play together.


  • Upload Couple Applications. Let’s face it Skype can sometimes be boring or even messenger. You can try to download some Couple apps that you can use for fun. We had like two couple applications in our phone. We have “Couplete” and “Couple”. We both use it. For Couple app, Nigel likes to send too may stickers so he bombarded me with it and he loves to use the Live Sketch because he can draw and sends it to me or sometimes we write messages in there. He loves the Thumbkiss, too. For Couplete app I love it because I can send online love letter and I can do a check list there so we can use it on the future.


  • Lastly, you can have checklist of the things that you want to do in the future together I have my checklist on my notebook and I tried to share it with Nigel. I’ll share some for you guys, DVD movie marathon (Dee’s choice of movies), do groceries together and plan a special date. I have a lot but I am wishing that we can do it together when he visits the Philippines next year.


These are just few things that you can do when boredom strikes. I have questions for you : Is there a time that you think your relationship is boring? What do you do about it? Let me know and thanks for reading. Have a great day!

    Oh wow, I can so relate! Before I moved to Indonesia to be with my husband we did Skype a lot. Problem was, it just wasn’t my medium. So what happened was that my husband would do most of the talking and I would just listen and grow sleepy or bored. I was aware of the problem and how unfortunate it would be to let it go on. What finally worked was to prepare at least 3 things in my head that I would discuss each Skype session. I also suggested we keep the Skype sessions short and lesser in frequency. It worked in our case as I stopped dreading the Skype sessions and the breathing space allowed for more things to discuss. I don’t know if this would work for you but sometimes, less is more.

    Anyhoot, good luck and keep looking for what works for both of you. It’s out there, just find it 🙂

  3. What I did for my LDR is that we would schedule weekly dinner dates or movie dates online on Skype. We would dress up “like a normal date” and cook the same dish and eat online while having conversation with each other. For the movie date, we will each prepare our own snacks then simultaneously click on play on the same movie. After the movie, we’ll discuss what we like or don’t like about the plots, characters etc.
