A serious relationship entails the promise of being together. Forever. This is one promise you wouldn’t want to break. Be it your partner, your mother, father or your children. The last thing you want is to drift apart.
And yet, we live in times that is not quite conducive to the promises of ‘forever’. Technology might have made us less emotional, more consumerist, busier, but it also makes being in touch with your loved ones rather easy. And being in touch is the best you can do to keep the ‘forever promise’. In the run-up to V-Day, let’s just give you a reminder of how you can use technology to stay better connected with your loved ones and keep the most important promise of them all: ‘To be there’.
- Video calling or conferencing: Internet has made video conferencing with friends and family, irrespective of where they are, extremely easy. We can meet all of them together on the compact screen of our smartphones. So this Valentine’s Day, if you are missing your loved ones just spare sometime and make a video call and make them feel that you are with them.
- Send gifts online: Gifts are always a great way to bring freshness to a relationship. Technology has made it easier to select and send gifts from our smartphones. While you can obviously buy gifts online, small gestures in the form of fresh flowers, a small box of chocolates is a good way to make your loved ones feel special. So shower love on your family, your friends, your colleagues and on everyone who cares for you and matters to you by sending surprise gifts online.
- Schedule text messages and video messages for your love: Apart from commitments and deadline in our work life, you also have some commitments which you probably never spell out but nonetheless make. These are the commitments from your personal life. Sometimes all you need to commit to this personal goals is to remember the special days and wish. Birthdays, anniversaries and of course Valentine’s Day. If your busy work schedule makes you forget things, schedule your messages in advance, through voice messages or even video messages. Just let them know that they are special. All it takes is a couple of minutes.
- Show some love with emojis: Might sound silly but emojis help when you are at a loss for words. Literally! Well, if you are on Hike and other messaging services, you can also use the funny faces function instead of those little emoticons. Either way, these indeed speak more than words could ever…
“Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth”.
These lines are from the last words of Steve Jobs which is a well-known name in the world of technology. Technology fills a large part in our life and so does love. So if you combine both of them together it will add a new color to your life and you will always rule hearts of your loved ones.
