Who travels for love finds a thousand miles not longer than one. ~Japanese Proverb

You know when you’re reading something you totally agree with and you get this uplifting feeling? That happened to me when I read the above proverb! 😀 The way I interpret it may be different from others but I think it means: “No distance is too far if you’re in love.

About a month ago I arrived home from a three month trip to Australia. I had traveled over there to meet Daniel, my one and only (as mentioned in my last blog post). We had met online nine months prior when he sent me a friend request on Myspace. :) We started talking through comments and, just a few days later, we were chatting hours upon hours on Windows Live Messenger! It was, and still is, amazing that I could talk to him the whole day without getting bored or having an awkward pause in the conversation. I have never been able to do that with anyone else!

When we first started talking, Neither of us were expecting more than just a friendship. He was looking for a girlfriend, but trying to find someone in his area. Oh, and I must add this!!, he started looking right after his ex broke up with him… REBOUND! xD LOL! I was concerned and told him he didn’t “need” another girlfriend, he just wanted one. As for me, I had been “involved”, emotionally at least, with a friend and was still trying to figure myself out. I just wasn’t looking for anyone… I didn’t have the feeling that I needed to be with someone. But of course, as the days went by, and we started learning more about each other, we started getting closer and closer! I think it took me a little over a month to realize how I felt about him! <3 :) I knew by then I would love to meet him one day and I told him so :P. I had no idea I would be on an airplane flying across the world 8 months after that, though 😛

Flying to Australia to meet the guy I am in love with was an awesome experience! I will admit, I was very nervous about the whole thing. After hearing stories about the young women who are found dead after such a trip, it would make sense, right? 😛 But it all ended very well! The time we spent together was magical!! After spending time with him I knew that if everything works out in life, I could end up spending the rest of it with him :D! It’s a wonderful feeling to have!  I love him with every part of me. It’s so hard to express how much he means to me but I know, since we practically share a brain xD, that he feels the exact same way!

Being in a long distance relationship isn’t easy. I miss him everyday. I miss his kisses. I miss being next to him. I miss seeing his smile, hearing his giggle, everything. I believe we can get through this, though. Being able to talk to him everyday helps a lot. Knowing that we’re both working towards the same thing really helps too :). Daniel and I are very lucky people! We have met our soul mates :) Our other half <3 I love you Daniel!
