Happy Birthday From Afar

Sometimes it can be challenging to write deeply emotional birthday wishes in a greeting card for your boyfriend—especially if you are in a long-distance relationship. While choosing the right words to show how much you care is not rocket science, it can be difficult to know where to start.

What you write should remind him how much he means to you and show him that he is always in your thoughts. Revisiting your feelings for your significant other in writing can be a great way to remind both of you of the importance of your relationship.

Here are some examples of romantic messages and expressions of love that you can use when writing to your long-distance boyfriend. Use the ideas from the list below to get started, then write your own unique message! You can send these romantic wishes via text/SMS, email, Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, or a good old-fashioned card!
