Four ways to say ‘I love You’ for couples in a long-distance relationship on Valentine’s Day

Long distance relationships may impact business productivity


London, UK, February 14, 2018 – TeamViewer®, a leading global software provider for IoT, connectivity, monitoring, support and team collaboration, seizes the opportunity of Valentine’s day to release a short list of tips for couples in long-distance relationships. But aside from all the “sweet talk” there is also a business perspective that comes with long-distance relationships: It may have an impact on the productivity.

Valentine’s Day is one of the most anticipated days of the year for couples worldwide. However, not all couples are lucky enough to be able to spend this important day together. In fact, an increasing number of couples are forced to keep up a long-distance relationship, be it temporary or permanent, due to work or study.

There are many factors that can lead to couples living far apart. Although this situation can be very challenging, it doesn’t mean that maintaining the relationship is impossible. Technology can help ease some of the challenges that come for couples in a long-distance relationship:

  • Send an ‘I love you’ by chat: let your partner know how important they are to you from the very start of the day. Surprise them with a loving message via a TeamViewer or Blizz chat, which will be the first thing they see upon opening the app on their mobile phone or computer.
  • Virtual date: Something not to be missed on Valentine’s Day is a romantic date with your partner. Who says distance should be a problem? Videoconferencing tools such as TeamViewer or Blizz allow two people to see each other and keep a conversation just as if they were on a face-to-face date.
  • Every little helps: If both partners work in the same sector, they can connect via TeamViewer and help each other out so the job will be done quicker, and there is more quality time to spend with each other.
  • Plan a surprise getaway: An unexpected weekend trip can be a big turn-on for every relationship. How about sending train or plane tickets by remotely printing them on the local printer of the partner so they find the romantic gift next time they walk by.

“Long distance relationships have become very common, and they represent a challenge for both partners,” says Axel Schmidt, Senior PR-Manager at TeamViewer. “However, there is also a business aspect that organizations may need to consider: Professionals who live far away from their partners may display greater emotional instability or a lack of concentration during work. Additionally, they may have to travel more often. This means that employees in long distance relationships can easily become less productive. Yet organizations of all sizes can address these challenges by implementing a remote access solution like TeamViewer. This may also make these organizations more appealing to skilled workers and high-potentials.”
