It’s easy to see how FaceTime has revolutionized how we bond with our friends and loved ones, considering everyone is a dial away, and the feature is Wi-Fi enabled.
However, no matter how close you are to the person, you are bound to run out of things to say and do, especially if the FaceTime calls are long. So, how can you spice up a FaceTime call?
To spice up your FaceTime video and audio calls, consider learning a new skill together, doing mundane tasks such as choosing an outfit, getting intimate, playing a game, and so forth.
You can do various things on FaceTime, and this article contains some fun ones. Of course, whatever you choose will depend on your age and the relationship you have with the people. Either way, you don’t need to worry, as we have included something for everyone.
Play a Game Together
Playing a game together is an inexpensive yet fun way to bond with anyone, so why not do it over FaceTime? The best part is some games are ideal for large groups of people, meaning they will be even more enjoyable.
People have invented games you can play over video calls, so you need to choose one that suits your mood. A few examples are listed below.
Game #1: Two Truths and a Lie
Two truths and a lie is suitable for people of all ages and relations. To play, one person needs to tell the rest three separate statements.
Two statements need to be true, and one should be a lie. The people being told will then guess which is which, and they win a point if they get it right.
Game #2: Newlyweds Game
As the name suggests, this card game is suitable for people who have just tied the knot, but people in a relationship are bound to enjoy it too. To play, one or both of you need to purchase the card game.
In summary, the cards contain several questions such as ‘What do you think I need to work on in our relationship?’ and the other person will tell you their answer.
By the end of the game, you and your partner are bound to feel closer to one another or, at the very least, will have been entertained.
Game #3: Charades
Charades is arguably one of the most popular games ever, and with good reason. First off, it’s suitable for people of all ages and relations. To play, one player acts out a particular action from their memory or from a bunch of cards dedicated to the game.
The action could be as hard as mimicking the Eiffel tower or as easy as brushing your teeth. Then the other player is supposed to guess what the action is; if they get it before the stipulated time ends, they win a point.
Game #4: Truth or Dare
There is little chance that a game of truth or dare (if played well) won’t be exciting. For starters, you can choose to use premade prompts from an online truth-or-dare game or choose to come up with your own.
As the name suggests, all you need to do is ask the other person to choose truth or dare. Assuming they choose dare, you are to dare them to do something interesting, and if they choose truth, ask them a question you think they would otherwise lie about its answer.
Learn a Skill Together
Contrary to popular opinion, you don’t have to just talk to someone on FaceTime, especially if you are trying to work on a meaningful relationship.
Instead, you can learn a simple skill with them while you bond over anything, and the conversation will be less mundane.
Some excellent skills you can learn are listed below.
Skill #1: Knitting
If none of you knows how to knit, find all the necessary tools in a knitting starter kit and buy them before the scheduled FaceTime call.
Also, ensure that both of you download the same YouTube videos that will take you through the needed steps. From there, just have fun and learn how to knit together.
Skill #2: Make Cocktails
If you are over the legal drinking age, consider making cocktails together on FaceTime. This one should be easy, considering you can make simple drinks with inexpensive ingredients.
Also, there are plenty of resources on how to make balanced cocktails on the internet, so you will have a lot of options to choose from.
The best part is, at the end of it all, you will have wonderful (or not) drinks to sip on as you talk about other things.
Perform Mundane Tasks Together
Often, we underestimate how the little things hugely impact our relationships. For example, something as simple as going to the grocery store with your loved one on occasion can allow you to bond so much.
Some other mundane errands you can run together on FaceTime are listed below.
Activity #1: Baking
Baking in person is quite a bonding activity. However, it can be equally fun if you bake while on FaceTime.
First, the activity takes significantly less hands-on time as most of the action happens in the oven. Therefore, you will have plenty of time to chat as you await to enjoy your goodies.
Activity #2: Go to a Restaurant
Instead of going to a restaurant and eating alone with your thoughts, consider calling someone to keep you company.
This is especially if you otherwise have a busy schedule and won’t be able to talk to the person another time.
One thing that couples in long-distance relationships struggle with is intimacy. However, it doesn’t have to be so if both of you have access to the FaceTime feature.
If you prefer, you can schedule private time and have an intimate moment where one party tells the other party what to do sexually or vice versa.
If you don’t mind taking it up a notch, schedule a video call where you both get naked and explore the world of phone sex.
There is no doubt that FaceTime has made calls easier for both parties to engage in. However, it’s normal to run out of fun things to do/say, making the calls feel like a chore.
To change the unfortunate situation, the above article has some activities that will surely spice up your FaceTime experience.
