Long distance relationship dating website best online dating personal description
I’m Megan from Australia, and over the last 5 years I’ve spent an accumulation of 6 months out of every year abroad.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.Mike had gone online, found a florist in my area and ordered them to be delivered…from America!– to which my mother’s reaction when I got home that evening was; Over the months there were a constant string of romantic emails, chocolates, mixed CD’s, letters, and even pizza!!He then came to Australia in April 2011 and spent a month with my friends and family before proposing!We spent two weeks in London in June of that year (where he proposed again, with a ring this time!According to my friends Mike was creepy because of the roses and pizza and mixed CD’s he would send.I had a group of friends in my backyard at a party re-enact the “No Gary No” add specifically for me as an “intervention”. However all of the negativity stopped of course when invitations to Hawaii were sent out and suddenly everyone had always been cheering for our relationship from the start!
I spent Christmas and New Years in America with him (where he proposed again…to be funny…on the big screen at Madison Square Gardens during a New York Rangers Game), and he moved to Australia on a 12 month work/travel visa in May of 2012.
Mike and I took our circumstances as a great opportunity to travel and met up with each other around the world.
After meeting initially in August 2010, we went to Scotland for that Christmas and spent the New Year touring London, Amsterdam and Paris.
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.
