Saying 'I love you' out loud can send shivers down your sweetie's spine. For those that are in long distance relationships, the telephone doesn't quite give the same effect. To keep the long distance romance alive, the Internet often comes into play. Even if you're not in a long distance relationship, you can use the Internet to add a new dimension of romance and passion to your relationship. If you're looking for a new way to express your love, these online declarations of love more than meet the challenge.
- Build a Website
It may sound like a daunting task, but building a website is easier than ever. For those tech savvy romantics, get a domain name such as JaneAndJohn.com, then create a website dedicated to your partner and your relationship. For those that aren't quite as tech savvy, look for a service that provides a free website creator tool. These tools often offer templates where no HTML code knowledge is needed. Generally, you can register the domain name and use the website creator for one low cost. Add some romantic clipart, photos of the two of you, love quotes, anecdotes, and memories of your relationship. Websites are particularly great for wedding proposals or even to chronicle your engagement and plan your wedding!
- Create a Love Blog
If you want a quick and easy way to create on online dedication of love, blogging is the way to go. They're free, easy to setup, and easy to maintain. Once you create the initial design, which in itself is quite easy, you need only log in a few times a week and scribe love notes to your sweetie. If you sign him or her up with an RSS reader or even MyYahoo!, they'll automatically receive updates alerting them of your recent love notes. To get started, try Vox.com, WordPress, Blogger, or TypePad.
- Create a LoveSpace with MySpace
If you don't already have a MySpace page for yourself, you've more than likely at least heard of the popular social network. MySpace works by giving users the ability to create their own "space" on the web and connect with other people on the network. Our suggestion for MySpace is to create your own LoveSpace on the network. Sign up for a free account and within minutes you'll have a page dedicated to your sweetie. Keep it focused on romance with weekly love notes, romantic poems, and photos. You can even add a romantic love song that plays when s/he visits the page! Make sure to set it up as private so that you feel free to open your heart and write whatever the mood strikes without worrying about prying eyes.
- Post Love Messages on Message Boards
If you and/or your partner frequent message boards or forums, take the opportunity to use it as a romantic tool. If allowed (be sure to check all posting rules first), start a thread declaring your love for your partner. Many community oriented forums allow you to create your own online journal within one long thread. Take advantage of this opportunity to post public declarations of love to your sweetie. Even if you don't frequent a forum, find one on a romance related website, such as our own Romance Forum that allows a journal or thread to be posted in dedication to your partner.
- Send an eCard
It may seem impersonal or even like a copout (if sent on an important holiday such as Valentine's Day or her birthday), but if you send ecards "just because", they're a great way to add a little romance to your sweetie's day. Browse the various free ecard sites, such as Hallmark.com, for funny, romantic, and sexy ecards. Most importantly though, put a bit of thought into your personalized message. Rather than ending it with 'Love, Your Name', think deep and write from the heart. Surprising your sweetie with a romantic ecard with romantic messages in their inbox will bring a smile to their face.
