Long Distance Relationship
Yup,another long distance relationship story to share with. It was about 2 years back when kevin and I got together. Both of us were in the medical school but he was one semester my senior when our campus was based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Although in different bacth of medical shool, we managed to know each other through activities like mountain climbing, marathon races, games and sports, dance, and so on. It took us just about 2 months to be close due to the similar interests and the never-ending conversations.
Sad to tell, but the truth, so soon after we got to know each other better, and felt that we were the right ones for each other, hence got together, and that was also almost the time we were to be apart. He were to leave for Australia for the other half of medical education, but i on the other hand got to stay back in the home country due to financial limitation. This is, frankly, my very first relationship... It really troubled the two of us, whether to begin the relationship, as it might not be a short period of time being apart, but at least 3 years for both of us to complete medical school. Things after that are going to be God-knows-how! We only had 2 months time before he left. And that also with things like final exams in between. Imangine how much quality time we managed to spend after we started our relationship. Imagine how wonderful it is for all other couples at the ealiest stage of relationship, and yet we had to fave the fact that we would be apart so soon.
What we could only do was to treasure every single seconds we could spend with each other. We could only blame that we didn't get to know each other much earlier.
I'm considered lucky. Kevin is able to come back twice each year to see me. Some couples of long distance relationship might not even see each other for years! Each time he comes back is like a whole new start for the relationship, which in a way is good. We try spending all the time together worth, going for trips, shoppings, nad so things that we don't normally get to do wen we are apart. HOwever, those few weeks of time spend together are so so much more shorter as compared to the thousands of days waiting for the next time we see each other again! Each time when he's back to see me, i just wished time would just freeze at the moment! EAch time he's leaving again would just make me tear so like a fountain!
Surviving through a long distance for the past 2 years is not an easy thing for sure. Thousands of dollars of phone calls made not only to kill the missing for each other, but more importantly to secure the relationship! A lot of people are surpised to hear that we are still on the phone almost everyday till now. Counting through days hoping that this 3 years would just pass like that and we would be together ever after. Sometimes really wonder, why don't we just make things more simply and terminate the relationship, especially seeing other couples here together happily, seeing each other day in day out. So many couples that we know of have failed to maintain their long distance relationships. NOt many lasted for even half a year. Friends whom i have not met for sometimes would definitely ask doubtfully if my relationship is still intact. and to each of them, i surpised them with the same answer that, yes, we are still together!
What lies ahead is really unwarrantable. But it's all worthwhile for someone that you love so deeply. We could only make the best out of it, thinking that all the efforts that we've put in would prove to the rest that Long Distance relationships DO WORK as well! Though difficult,I still do believe in long distance, other wise i wouldn't have started it. And i know determination really counts. Successful couples who have gone through lond distance relationships, perhaps would treasure their relationship even better, because they would know how much pain to suffer when two loved ones are apart.

p/s: I would like to take this opportunity to thank my dear boyfriend, for being such a loving and wonderful partner. Although physically he is not with me most of the time, but he's almost right here in my mind. Darling, Happy 2nd Anniversary, proudly...
