yeah, we’ve been long-distance our entire relationship
met him in times square at a bar it was his last day of a year of travelling and working, I was drawn the minute I met him and knew he was someone I wanted in my life.
We’ve been doing the inter-continental thing for two years now, gives me a reason to travel to Europe a lot.
The hardest part is when we say goodbye, he hates it when I cry, so I wait til he leaves, we survived by skype, we chat everyday or every other day; we see each other every 3 months and I am very blessed my sister is a flight attendant so we saved bigtime on tickets, if it weren’t for her our wedding would never be
plus we are both very frugal so we could save for our next trip, we both have the same family and religious values even though we are different races and we just plain love each other
I think it’s the love and commitment that helps you beat the odds, if it’s really meant to be it will happen no matter what, I had no idea, but I am very happy we are now engaged, I always knew there was something good about this that was worth pursuing and not letting it go, it’s just an instinct you have, we nearly gave up because it ws painful, but it was too good a thing to let go, my friends would say how can you do it, anther said what are you going to do with this, but deep in my heart I knew it had a chance of working
Plus I have an amazing circle of friends I have a good time with in the city, my girlfriends and I have so much fun so it helped me through the lonely nights when I was missing him, which is why I invited all 18 of them, litttle do they know they helped me with my relationship and surviving the odds
It also makes you appreciate every minute with each other, you don’t focus on the small things and don’t take each otehr for granted when you are with him because your time is precious, it makes your time together much sweeter
