Long Distance Relationship
I have always believe that long distance relationship works as long as the person you are having a relationship with have the same nationality. I have always denounced having an interracial relationship not until I met my american fiancee. I always have this notion that two people who both came from different culture, values and distance will not really make any real relationship. Sure, they can just flirt with each other but marriage, come on.
This notion is pretty much build up from the background that I have gained working with foreign bosses particularly americans. So thus speak, I have only joked about marrying an american way back college years but at that time it was just a joke I am cracking since I have a very strong feeling with a childhood friend back then and I have never thought that the joke that I uttered 5 years ago and the resistance that I catapulated will all be withdrawn when I met him.
He is from Arkansas USA and I am from Makati Philippines. We are 12,000 miles apart or more so thus speak. But, this did not hinder our relationship. We have been a couple for more than a year and we are tying a knot by next year.
We always acknowledge the success of our relationship through God's guidance. We make sure that we always put Him as the power center of it. We started our relationship as friends and as we continue to know each other, we are drawn more closer and became lovers. He was a christian which made me more interested and drawn to him. Compare to other american guys I have known, he was very different in terms of the perspective that he have in life, the values that he have adn the faith that he have. We have alot of things in common and we share the same interest. Moreover, he was very understanding on all my undertakings.
Both our families accepted our relationship much more to my surprise. I am the youngest and my family is very strict but when I announced my relationship with him (which I was preparing for violent reactions) my family was happy about it. and the same goes for him. His mother and sister welcomed me in their family with open arms
But there came a point in our relationship that our fears were exposed, he feared that I might leave him for another guy since he was used that his girlfriends doing that. As for mine, I am being shallow because my friends are teasing me as he was not as goodlooking as my former boyfriends and thus the distance at first was killing us with all the telephone bills, email exchange and chat sessions... I was on the point of giving him up and asking whether he was really for real especially when my family also questionned me why it was taking long to formally introduce him, but at that time he was currently having financial problem which hinders him for meeting them.
But thanks be to God that we have overcome that. Prayers, trust, commitment and love for each other are the key ingredients why we are still together. We are constantly praying that whatever is instored for us, we know that God will always make a way.
My prayer also goes to those lovers having the same situation as ours.
