In this paper, we discussed a Long-distance relationship (LDR) design system for subtle emotional communication. In-the-wild user studies with qualitative interviews were conducted. The results suggest that slowness, content-less, limitation, and ambiguity that are elements often less considered in interaction design, actually are valuable for creating the sense of awareness and companionship between LDR groups.
