Long distance dating dates


Listen to what your friends and family have to say, sure, but thank them for their opinion and continue living your life.Family rumors circulated amongst the extended family that I was heading off for Christmas in Scotland with someone I had met on the internet (although let’s be honest I’ve met worse guys “conventionally” in bars and nightclubs than I have online); that Mike was actually 60; and I had friends who went as far to enlighten me in detail as to how I was going to end up raped and murdered, chopped up into little pieces in a garbage disposal in some dark alley somewhere in the world. ) I was continually told that there was no way he was being faithful to me 15,000 kilometers away, and that I was wasting my time and being ridiculous.Mike had gone online, found a florist in my area and ordered them to be delivered…from America!

One hotel reception shift I had a pizza delivery man come in at lunch and drop off a Large Hawaiian, bottle of Fanta and chocolate lava cake; all which had been ordered and paid for by Mike online, from America!!

60 days out from us meeting in Scotland for New Years 2011 I received a box which had 60 letters; one each day until we met up!

I would call around 11pm after getting home from work, meaning I would “apparently” sometimes fall asleep mid conversation : S, which meant Mike picked up his phone every morning around 6am in America.

Being forced to talk on the phone meant that we got to know each other a lot more intimately, and a lot more quickly than we otherwise would have.

He then came to Australia in April 2011 and spent a month with my friends and family before proposing!
