4. Text them something simple but thoughtful, like a haiku.


You probably think it doesn't make much of a difference, but even something as simple as a text with more thought than the usual salutations can brighten their day. Plus, it's a nice way to share a moment together without alarming everybody around the two of you.

5. Write them a letter.


Handwritten letters are such a personal touch to communication, and just about completely lost in today's world. It's another way to have a private moment without actually being together.

9. Send them a song, or a clip from a move that's special just between the two of you.

10. Send them something they might be interested in, like an article or news story.


Show them you were listening the other night when they expressed interest in this or that. It may not seem like much, but it's something they are sure to notice.
