Names- Anna & Paul
Locations- USA & Scotland
How did we meet- Paul and I met through the app discord through a mutual friend. We got added to a call together and we instantly hit it off. We talked everyday from then on.
Who made the first move- We both confessed at the same time lol, while I was trying to get the words out of my mouth, Paul said them for me.
Our first date- Our first date was the day we met for the first time in person in Scotland. We walked around the town for an hour or two looking for a nice restaurant to go to but all of the restaurants were booked out fully. So we decided finally to go to Five Guys for our first date and it was better than any fancy restaurant. We had the best night talking and eating fries.
How long have we been together- We have been together for 1 year and 4 months, our anniversary is 5/27/2019
A major challenge in our relationship- A major challenge in our relationship is communicating our feelings.
How we settle disagreements- We settle disagreements by giving eachother time and talking it out once it is settled down.
Dealing with cultural differences- we don't really have any.
Memorable trip together- We have only had one trip so far, but Christmas 2019 will be our second. The trip to Scotland was magical because it was our first time meeting each other. So we went all out with everything and probably spent way too much money and had the best times of our lives with each other.
When and how we will close the distance- We don't exactly know when we will close the distance, we are hoping in a few years. We will close the distance by having Paul get his green card and moving in together in America.
Any words of advice- It is really hard to be in a long distance relationship but is totally worth it. In the end you trust each other a lot more and learn to deal with hard times easier.
