We travel or just stay together and bond. For some people, it may end up in a break up. Also, check Things to Say When You Talk Dirty to A Girl. Video calling is the key to a long distance relationship. I’m afraid that if we separate again, this time we won’t make it. It can be unpredictable at times. Hi George, I completely agree with you. Aleks sounds like a wonderful guy! I hope you would like my advice. Thank you for sharing your experience in detail with us. Hope I can handle it and make it working . Always had a great times when my bf visit me. Anyway we still love each other. International phone bills can be expensive but you can talk for free over apps like Skype and FaceTime, and video chat is a great way to stay in touch, because the face to face contact (even though it’s through a screen) adds a much more personal element and makes you feel more connected. We have plan B and C, choose another 2 countries to meet, but things are not certain yet, maybe need quarantine by then. I have plans to go see him when I graduate! At the beginning, we communicated through text, which caused several arguments. Thankyou Laura! My suggestion if he can make it work would be to try and get an online business running, or find a job in Australia which would allow him to work remotely online. I know that at the end we are going to end up together and have a family..because that’s just the way its meant to be. I so wish we both could afford another trip right now. Someday, I know someone will be able to keep up with me. Hi Bhagyashree thanks for reaching out. I know waiting sucks and it’s very hard. It’s hard but I wouldn’t change anything!!! I’m sure once your family and friends meet him and realize how good you are together the negative comments will stop :), Wishing you both all the best. Funny also how those moments usually eventuate from the “what the heck” moments too :D. I often think back as to what my life would be like now if I hadn’t decided to sit at the table Mike was sitting at that one day in Africa, or hadn’t had the courage to start a conversation with a then total stranger. He was in the Navy back then and we had five glorious days together when his ship came to Western Australia where I was living at the time. your story really inspired me. What would you suggest I do? Absolutely Darren – the internet is a godsend for long distance relationships! I live in the US and he is back in Scotland, but we IM each other all day long at work and spend an hour each night Face-timing before he turns in for the night. All the best X. I am really happy for you. I always used to tell those who made negative comments that I probably knew this person more than they knew their own partner – because the distance meant we were forced to get to know each other and not base our relationship on the physical. Always communicate, but if communication fails and you can’t talk through it, it may be a sign that it’s time to move on. I’m so happy knowing that we’re not alone. But at the same time, seeing him will ease your longing. I am very glad to have read it. Congrats on having found each other, and for making it work and sticking with it throughout the difficult points. My husband and I have two children and we moved from the UK to Oz a couple of months back. Massive congrats on finding your happiness and making it work. Much love x. Hiya, firstly I want to say how great your story is and it gives me confidence in the situation I’m in. I actually met my ex husband online and we were together for 12 years. In our last month together though before I headed back to my home country (Philippines), he was cutting visits and I felt that he was being distant. If he’s not picking up the phone, perhaps you could write him an email or a text apologizing. 7 years isn’t that big of an age gap in later life – it’s more about the maturity levels and connection of both people. It is just such an out of the box relationship. You could decide upon meeting that it’s not for you, or you could fall madly in love even more than you already are and know that all of the work to keep the relationship alive is 100% worth it. Avoid things like movies where you won’t have the chance to interact and talk. Hi Gemma, thanks for sharing your story, I’m glad that we could give you confidence that it’s something you can achieve! If that could work out logistically with your custody. – email is firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s scary, sure, but if we let fear dictate out decisions we’ll get to the end and realized we never lived. I moved back to California to finish my undergraduate degree and my boyfriend is now living in Spain for the next year. We skype all the time and I really feel close to him when we do. Im currently in a LDR with my girlfriend being on the cruise liners. And hallelujah for Skype! Wishing you both all the best XX. Before we make plans for him to come see me I would like to get to know him for a bit longer via whatsapp and facetime. I sensed the move was too huge for him. I dont know what to do,my boyfriend parents are not ready for our marriage,they told him if you want to marry her you can go ahead but after dat never ever try to contact us,i dont want just because of me his parents will stop talkimg to him.i love him n he loves me too,we have planned to live in together.i am totally confused how to make them agree for our marriage. He lives in Russia and I in the US and talk about red tape! We are currently at the ‘who moves where’ phase as it’s getting harder to say goodbye every time we visit eachother and it seems like it makes more sense for him to come to Scotland at this point in our lives, however the visa process for work is quite tricky so I am not out-ruling the possibility of moving there. It can be very difficult not to be offended when your friends make jokes at your expense, but I found the best way was to stay strong in my convictions and brush it off, knowing that it’s because they don’t have any understanding of your situation. And what do u think i should do to make our convos less boring? We have hopes to meet half-way’ish in my homeland Chile, where he won’t need student or working visas. So I flew over to Venice on 13th December to wave her off to Sudan for an incredible 3 hours being together in an Airport lounge… and now we are long distance. None of them seem to believe in LDR’s and doubt his intentions. Even if you spend two years together and you decide down the line that it would be better to separate after the future has become more apparent, you can at least say that you gave it a go and you tried, and you shared a wonderful connection during the time that you were in each other’s lives. We have such similar ideals on love and life and we are in love. He is 26 in the Netherlands and I am 22 in America. Hi this is my story, i went on holiday 4 years ago to Gran Canaria a Spanish island 4 years ago, i went with my daughter and we used to go in a bar we liked and there was a guy who worked there who we got friendly with. Any advice? I had planned to move back to Iowa (where I am from) with my son, but his dad will not allow that without a fight. Thankyou so much for this post, my fiancee actually came across this lol. I live in Rhode Island and he lives in Florida. This type of situation definitely puts pressure on you to get married – it was the easiest way forward for us, so that’s what we decided to do. So if you can’t speak to each other on the cell phone, perhaps you can try and write letters, or emails, or even talk to each other on things like Facetime or internet calls via Skype. Or I guess, how do you think I could go about proposing this to this guy? Family have said that my husband and I need to be physically living together and to have some stability in our relationship…we have been married 12 years! Thanks again for taking the time to respond. we met online on interpals a penpal website and now we are inseparable and so in love. My girlfriend and I are currently enduring a long distance relationship. Not only we’re still students, but our culture is way too different. I’m sorry that you have to experience so much negativity, trust me though when I say it’s an incredibly amazing feeling to be giving your wedding speech in front of all of those who doubted you!! You’re right – there’s not a lot out there about the journey itself. Save the romantic affection for when you finally get to see him. I love this story and plan to share with my daughter. Hi La Dama, thanks for sharing your story, I’m so glad to hear that our blog was helpful for you at the beginning of your relationship. (LDR) requires a lot of dedication, a spurt of imagination, creativity, and more importantly, a dedicated me-time allocated for both the partners. I was already unhappy in my marriage and chose to travel back and forth to the U.K. Every few months to help in the care of my dad. I go home for Xmas in 79 days and I will see him for the first time since 2008. I stumbled upon your article when I was googling ‘should you fall in love with someone overseas’. I moved from Ecuador to Beijing in 2014 to pursue my master’s degree, and my now boyfriend returned to Beijing from Japan, where he had been working for 3 years; he is Chinese and I’m a Latina, we are quite a pair haha! He definitely could look at applying for jobs before hand and having a business sponsor him to come.
