Love abroad dating more member on dating site
We swapped emails and phone numbers, not having any clue that our wedding in Hawaii would be less than three years later. I firmly believe that you can make anything work if you want to. I wont lie – long distance for 18 months was incredibly hard, but we made it work by maintaining: We spoke every day.
I got an amazing phone plan where I had unlimited calls to international mobiles, and we would talk for hours.
From her own experiences, our contributor breaks it down for all of those starry-eyed youngsters hoping to fall in love while abroad.
It seems like a dream…you move to a mysterious new land, meet a handsome stranger and fall hopelessly, passionately in love.
It might sound horribly corny, and you may now wish to throw up, but seriously – don’t underestimate the power of being sickly sweet!!
So it’s not surprising that I met the love of my life while traveling. I still love the reactions we get when people ask “so you’re from Australia, he’s from America – where did you both meet? After having both finished the Mt Kilimanjaro climb, we met through mutual travelers at the hotel at the bottom of the mountain.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.We have a pretty incredible story – so I’m told – which included pulling off one of the greatest long distance relationships ever, being almost 15,000 kilometers apart. Before we knew it we had spent hours talking to each other and laughing together, and found ourselves sitting beneath a starry African sky in the early AM hours.Dinner had turned into breakfast and we forced ourselves to say goodbye before heading towards separate flights. If you truly want something to work, and you put everything you have into it, you’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish.
