Even though I’m now living with my wonderful boyfriend, I will never forget that we spent our first five years in a long-distance relationship.
I’m not going to lie to you: it was tough. I was living in France and he was living in England. We use to see each other during the Christmas and Summer holidays, due to our busy lives.
Did I ever have doubt our story? Well, sometimes I felt that we would never live together or even in the same country.
Did I ever have doubt about his devotion? Never, because I think that he is a clever man, not stupid enough to ruin everything that built together.
I never stopped living just because my boyfriend was away. I kept studying, partying, shopping, etc… Of course, I had to make some adjustments so that I could call him on the phone (almost everyday).
I knew quite early in our relationship that he was THE man for me.
He is not perfect, but his imperfections make me love him even more. And let’s face the truth: I’m not perfect either.
I am glad that has been brave enough to stick it out with me as his future wife.
A little advice: if you want to make it work, it will. Sometimes, you will have to make some sacrifices, but it will be worth it.
I think the key to the success of our couple is quite simple: he is my best friend and my lover at the same time.
I’m still surprised that he chose me, but I’m really glad he did.
