Being in a relationship with someone who works a FIFO (Fly-In Fly-Out) lifestyle can be tough. It's not easy being away from your partner for weeks or even months at a time, but it doesn't mean you can't stay connected and keep the spark alive. In this blog post, I'll share some creative and cheeky ways to stay in touch with your FIFO partner, including some MA15+ topics (so keep an open mind!).
1. Send sexy messages and photos
When you're missing your partner, a little bit of sexting can go a long way. Send your partner a flirty message or a cheeky photo to remind them of what's waiting for them at home. Just make sure to keep it appropriate for your relationship and avoid anything that could come back to haunt you later.
2. Have virtual date nights
Just because you're not physically together doesn't mean you can't still have a date night. Set up a video call and eat a meal together or watch a movie together while video chatting. You can even play games together online or have a virtual dance party.
3. Keep a shared journal
This is a great way to stay connected and share your thoughts and feelings with your partner. Write back and forth in a notebook or online document, sharing your day-to-day experiences and anything else that's on your mind.
4. Plan a surprise visit
If your partner has a break in their schedule, plan a surprise visit to see them. This can be a great way to break up the monotony of the FIFO lifestyle and show your partner how much you care.
5. Try phone or video sex
It's not for everyone, but if you're comfortable with it, phone or video sex can be a great way to stay connected and satisfy your physical needs. Just make sure you're both on the same page and take appropriate precautions to protect your privacy.
6. Share a playlist
Create a shared playlist of songs that remind you of each other, or that you both enjoy. Listen to it when you're missing each other or use it as background music during a virtual date night.
Staying connected with your FIFO partner can be challenging, but it's not impossible. Whether it's through sexy messages and photos, virtual date nights, or surprise visits, there are plenty of ways to keep the spark alive. Just make sure to keep the communication open and honest, and always prioritize your partner's feelings and needs.
