Hello Megan, My girlfriend and I are currently enduring a long distance relationship. She is very new to the whole idea to long distance as whole and I am not. It can be a really tough situation to deal with sometimes, especially when it’s something that is outside of your comfort zone and it’s your first time experiencing it.Recently we had an argument about the idea of “us” which wasn’t so much an argument as it was her telling her opinions and I not knowing what to say as to remedy the situation. So that’s where her opinions are likely coming from.
We got married in Hawaii this Valentines day just past, and I’m now blogging from Florida where I’m spending the next 3 years until I gain American Citizenship.
(Immigration is a whole other blog which I will rant about at some other time).
Mike had gone online, found a florist in my area and ordered them to be delivered…from America!
– to which my mother’s reaction when I got home that evening was; Over the months there were a constant string of romantic emails, chocolates, mixed CD’s, letters, and even pizza!!
I would call around 11pm after getting home from work, meaning I would “apparently” sometimes fall asleep mid conversation : S, which meant Mike picked up his phone every morning around 6am in America.
Being forced to talk on the phone meant that we got to know each other a lot more intimately, and a lot more quickly than we otherwise would have.
If you, like me, dedicate a large portion of your time to travel, and spend more time traveling than you are resident in your own country, you’re more than likely to meet someone overseas.
Which is a pity, because long distance relationships don’t work, right? I swear I will hit the next person who tells me that long distance relationships NEVER work out…and there have been many.
One hotel reception shift I had a pizza delivery man come in at lunch and drop off a Large Hawaiian, bottle of Fanta and chocolate lava cake; all which had been ordered and paid for by Mike online, from America!!
