Beautiful Canadian Woman Travels Thousands of Miles to Marry Her Online Filipino Lover
Long distance relationships (LDR) are probably the hardest to handle. As much as you want to be with your partner, a lot of factors prevent you from being together. Long distance relationships require a lot of trust and understanding, as being away from your loved one can be frustrating and confusing at the same time.
Keeping long distance relationships intact through the years require patience and determination as well. While couples who live close to each other can solve problems and misunderstandings easily by a simple hug, or a visit to your partner’s home after a small fight—LDR simply rely on fast internet and their mobile phones unless they can afford to travel for every little fight.
No one knew that this Filipino guy and his Canadian girlfriend would last long—especially when they merely met on social media. A Canadian woman met Romel, a Filipino living in General Santos City in the Philippines, through Facebook back in 2009. They never knew that one friend request will change their lives forever.
They started talking and chatting with each other on the said social media platform, and their friendship soon bloomed into a romantic relationship. Their relationship was strong, despite being apart for more than 8000 miles for two years. Finally, on January 5, 2012, the Canadian woman decided to fly to the Philippines and meet the love of her life.
They enjoyed their precious time together, boasting photos showing how in love they were. Unfortunately, the woman had to go back to Canada, and they had to be separated once again. Though their first meeting was short-lived, they continued to support each other and love each other for another couple of months apart.
The woman came back to the Philippines once again—this time to marry the man she truly loves. On August 10, 2013, the couple finally tied the knot, defying all odds. Today, the couple continues to inspire many LDR lovers out there.
