Long distance relationships are challenging, and they take investments such as sleep deprivation because of time differences, being constantly in phase of money saving, or saying -no- to your friend’s party […]
Tea replied to the topic Day 30: What advice would you give to other couples in LDRs? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 5 months, 2 weeks ago
For this final day of challenge, my short advice would be to trust eachother and to let current situation – long distance, be a motivation to cherish every moment (online or real-life). To be present, strong and let this process be your guidance for patience, communication, persistance and faith 🙂 We can do this!
Tea replied to the topic Day 29: What are some positive impacts you feel distance has had on your relationship? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 5 months, 2 weeks ago
I would say that it improved my overall communication skills, and made me more confident. LDR can also help in having heathy relationsips where you balance individuality and dependency (in a good way).
Tea replied to the topic Day 27: What do you think is the hardest thing about an LDR? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Maybe it’s insufficient support from family and close friends. Many couples that I know, and me included, at first did not have their parents’ understanding. And especially in the beginning, that kind of support is important. This is one of the reasons why I believe that this kind of community plays an important role 🙂
Tea replied to the topic Day 26: What is the most important aspect of a relationship to you? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 5 months, 3 weeks ago
I think that there are many important aspects to a good relationship, any relationship. Those include honesty, supporting eachother, loyalty, appreciation, etc.
But specifically talking about LDR, I would say it’s definitely communication 🙂
Victor and I first said it on the phone! I was calling him from a phone box, and I had international card that had only 2 minutes limit 🙂 We were talking very fast, becauSe the time was limited, and he interrupted me saying that he loves me. He then repeated it, and I told him right away that I love him too <3 Phone box started to beep, as our…[Read more]
Tea replied to the topic Day 16: What are both of your dream careers, and how do you think the LDR will affect them? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months ago
We both already have jobs which we love, but we have a dream that we share, and it’s opening a owning a restaurant. We live in very different cultures, and it would be great if we could manage to have Serbian Cousine in Peru, and Peruvian restaurant in Serbia, since there is nothing like it here 🙂
Tea replied to the topic Day 15: What was your first kiss like? If you haven’t kissed yet, what do you think it will be like? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months ago
It was very cute and little bit shy.
When we first met, I ran to hug him at the airport! We hugged for a long time, and then we looked at eachother, and kissed – just a peck 🙂
It was short, but so cute <3
Tea replied to the topic Day 13: Share a cute memory that you have together. in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 1 week ago
One of the cutest memories is when Victor and I got lost in Andes mountain. It was not dangerous, but it seemed as an adventure, as we were alone and lost, trying to figure out our way back. He was always making sure to “protect” me. He was acting in ways to make me feel safe. It always makes me smile when I remember it 🙂 The way he handeled it…[Read more]
Tea replied to the topic Day 12: What means of communication do you use most? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 1 week ago
We mostly use Facebook messenger and Google Hangouts.
We use Couple App when we’re on our phones 🙂
Tea replied to the topic Day 11: What’s the most favourite thing/gift you’ve given each other? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 1 week ago
Favourite thing I have from Victor is his special T-shirt, which he gave me after our first visit.
I love wearing it 🙂
The favourite thing I gave him is 4-leaf-clover that I found in my garden. I put it in a picture frame and gave it to him with special message on the back of the frame <3
Tea replied to the topic Day 10: What hobbies and interests do you two have in common? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 1 week ago
I am so happy that we have many things in common that we love to do together.
We love hiking, rock climbing, bouldering… We also play a lot of table-tennis, squash, anything with rackets 😀
Our hobbies are mostly sports.
P.S. We have the same taste in music and movies, it’s almost weird how equal it is. He would send me a song that I literally…[Read more]
1. He is right-handed, but when he does sports, he can use both left and right hand, and in soccer – both left and right leg as equal 😀
2. When he was a kid, he was sure that he saw a ghost, and he still tells the story with many vivid details.
3. His body temperature is always slightly higher then mine, so when we hold hands, mine seems frozen…[Read more]
Tea replied to the topic Day 7: What is your favourite physical feature of each other? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 1 week ago
Maybe it sounds funny, but I am obsessed with his hair! 🙂
He has a lot of hair (it’s not long, it’s just a LOT) and it’s so shiny, curly-wavy and adorable.
In this part of world (Eastern Europe) most men, and young men included are mostly BALD by the age of 30… Maybe that’s why I am attracted to differencies 😀
Victor says he likes my eyes,…[Read more]
Tea replied to the topic Day 6: How did you tell your family and friends about your LDR? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 2 weeks ago
I loved reading you comments girls. My situation was similar to Julia’s.
My parents knew that we were chatting for a long time. Victor even talked with my mom and my sisters on phone and on Skype.
After we met in real life, we decided to make our relationship “official” and I told my parents that we are in love, and that we want to make it…[Read more]
Tea replied to the topic Day 5: What was your first impression of your partner? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Me and Victor were friends for a looong time. I love his honesty, kindness, and that he is always down to earth, analytic and reasonable. As an artist, I am sometimes “walking on clouds” so it’s really refreshing to be with someone who is my “opposite” and who brings out the best in me, and at the same time, creates balance 🙂
Victor and I also met in a group chat! 😀
It’s funny because back when we met, we spoke completely different languages, and neither of us was fluent in english, so our communication was more about drawing and sending pictues of things we wanted to say. 🙂
But soon enough, I learned spanish, and he speaks my language now as well – serbian (similar…[Read more]
Tea replied to the topic Day 2: How far is your distance, and what’s the time difference? in the forum September 30 Day LDD Challenge ! 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Victor and I are 6,956 miles apart (From Peru to Serbia). It takes about 26 hours total when we fly to see eachother, but it’s worth it! <3 Our time difference is 7 hours 🙂
