Chris and I were in a long distance relationship for nearly three years before we were finally able to close the distance. A lot of people often ask us how we met, and how exactly we ended up in a 4000+ mile, international relationship.
Unlike many long distance couples, we did not initially meet online. We were forunate enough to meet in person first – during a visit of mine to the UK. But it wasn’t until I returned to the US that Chris asked me out over Skype and we started dating. I never imagined finding a boyfriend that summer. I certainly wasn’t looking for a relationship. But sometimes these things happen when you least expect them.
The Story of Us
In this video, we answer some of the questions that we are most commonly asked by our readers. How did we meet? What were our first impressions of each other? How was our first date? How long did we date before deciding to close the distance?

We plan on introducing more vlogs about international, long distance relationships & expat life in the UK over the coming months.
What is Your Story?
For us, one of the most exciting aspects of blogging is meeting new people. We love hearing stories from other long distance couples who have managed to close the distance (or are planning to). Every story is a unique reflection of the couple, and no two are ever the same.
Do you have a long distance love story? If so, we’d love to hear from you. You can write to us in the comments below, or if you want to record your story – send us a link to your YouTube video.
