Of course date a lot! Even dates that not requires money, like going to a park, are good. Just talking and wandering aroung together. Going to a big library and listening to music: “What do you think of this song?”, something like this.
When you can’t meet you can maybe share the same books or dvds. For example, you may decide to read the same book in 3 days, ok? Then you would read it because you want to talk about it with that person. So even if in those days you can’t meet there’s still a date-like feeling. Isn’t this great?
Then when I read Shoujo manga I feel the adrenalin of wanting to fall in love. For this when I’ve a crush on somebody I read them a lot! From now on the girl that I want to fall for should read Shoujo manga! (lol)
