What is the BIGGEST problem when dating someone from another country?

How many travel and expat bloggers out there have wonderfully successful international relationships that they are more than happy to share with the world? As much as I love reading those stories, from my own years spent in Spain I have learned that dating abroad is not all sunshine and fairytales, and it has been idealized online far too often. Have you ever dated, had a fling or fallen in love abroad? Tell us about it! How did it end? It seems like a dreamyou move to a mysterious new land, meet a handsome stranger and fall hopelessly, passionately in love.

Secondly its likely my country would never accept him as a resident or citizen because of such strict immigration regulations. As for me, I would go back to Kenya in a heartbeat, I love the country. But I see it all becoming so expensive down the road, plus living in a developing country is not always easy.

My best bet is to get dual citizen andlive in Kenya permanently. Not to mention, his work and livimg conditions are poor. It kills me and makes me cry that I cannot be there to help him, and support him through the hardships in his life. Hi Nicole, I would really like to know how things are right now. I met a wonderful guy whilst on a solo trip, but it was an unusual dreamy story right off the bat.

I decided not to give up. I invited him to visit me, and he came for a month. We travelled around together and fell deeply in love. Fast forward four years, we are getting married next year, lived in three different countries and given up countless things big and small to be together.

He is going back to visit one of the places we travelled to together the first time with his sister and booked the same hotel we stayed at. It lasted 6 years, ready to get married and tying to have a baby.

But we were settle together with our own house and everything.

Nov 03, I moved into an apartment by myself in Chicago and set about the grim task of dating. I didn't want to date, I didn't know how to date, I hated dating, and every time I went out with someone who I sort of maybe liked, I was terrified that he wouldn't like me, which meant that I would die alone.

More travel stories. Mine Don't. I love your story - not sure if mine will turn out the same but went on trip to meet someone overseas we met online - and we got along well I am leaving up to him - and going about my life. Hi Pam!

Congrats on meeting a great guy! This year we will celebrate our 17 th anniversary by moving to Australia. I wife moved to the States and now we move to my home hometown to be with our two beautiful Granddaughters. Bless you both live long and happy xx. Congratulations Trisha! I really do think that having the strength and courage to keep going when everyone you know is sprouting nothing but negativity is one of the biggest hurdles.

I met him here in Belgium where I am working as Au-pair. Higreat story,hapoy for you both. I aslo wanted to know if. You guys had a plan as to how long you will spend apart before you next meet up? Does he have any children who could set up Skype or Facetime for him?

Or perhaps you could talk him through the set up over the phone. Please email me so we can chat more about it - Brooklyn sharpentertainment. Hi I recently met someone in Tanzania in Africa and she wants to come to Scotland to live with me but I have no clue on what to do so any advice would greatly appreciated.

And also we love each other please help. Hi Mark, congrats on meeting someone : The process of her coming to live with you will greatly depend on the options for UK immigration, so I would start by looking into the different types of Visas she might be able to apply for to spend time with you in Scotland.

This could mean spending a year first and then opting for something more permanent, but the first step will be to figure out what your options are and go from there. HI Julius, all advice here is for those already in a long distance realtionship. Wishing you all the best. Thank you so much for your bravery.

Not just for telling your story but for your dedication and your relationship. As I write this I am sitting at the Brisbane airport waiting for my sister whom I will stay with tonight bef ore flying to Kentucky tomorrow.

I am going to spend three months with the love of my life. We met 19 years ago in an msn chat room. He was in the Navy back then and we had five glorious days together when his ship came to Western Australia where I was living at the time. We tried to keep our relationship going but we both had young children at the time so we decided we would try to move on without the other. It killed me to hear him so unhappy and depressed but I believe we are friends first and I supported him through his grief until we had a quarrel and we stopped talking.

Imagine my surprise when in February this year he called me out of the blue!! Everyday since we have spoken on the phone and text constantly. We average around four hours talking each day and we talk about everything and anything! So, at 50 and 52 years of age we are beginning the long journey with immigration etc.

I love you with all of my heart baby and I am honored to be in your life. I will work everyday of my life to make you as happy as you make me.

Love the romantic gestures! Stories like this only happen in the movies! Loved this! Long distance can work. Great tips. Thanks Roza! Sounds like Tanzania is the place to be!! So awesome to hear a positive long distance experience from someone else as well!

We are now 1 year long distance, been traveling to Germany to see him. As Meg says, it really works if you want it to. This just made me feel so relieved that this can happen. I very recently broke up with my bf because of my long term travel plans. Really impressed with your positive attitude towards life - someone will come along when you genuinely least expect it in circumstances that you least expect - trust me!

Until then though enjoy your travels! Hi Laura I agree with you. HI Karolina - my email is megan mappingmegan. I agree with so much of what you said. You gotta use that and prove them wrong. I am in a long distance relationship Canada-USA mind you we try to see eachother every month or so and have been for a year. My boyfriend does the cutest things.

It can and does work. Thanks Nath : Aww - seriously sounds like you have a keeper there! Sounds like the kid of stuff Mike would do when we were living apart! And sometimes absence makes the heart grow stronger!!

always falls buttered

Hold onto that one. All the best with your relationship - sounds like you both have the right attitude towards making it work :.

Thanks for providing some silver lining for me! That was the one great thing about our relationship - even though we were so far apart, we both had super busy work schedules and had our own projects to focus on while we were apart. I had to leave for America two weeks later. He proposed on thanksgiving. I came back to America where people have nothing but negative things to say.

To make you want to give up on even trying. Hard times come and go. We have seen each other for a total of three months. If you add up all the times we have traveled to see each other. Never let anyone change your mind. Love is always worth taking a chance. I absolutely love your attitude and wish there were more people like you in the world! I always used to tell those who made negative comments that I probably knew this person more than they knew their own partner - because the distance meant we were forced to get to know each other and not base our relationship on the physical.

To last we had to be able to maintain an actual conversationevery night!! Loved your story. We skype everyday and it certainly helps.

We manage to see each other about once a month but it is hard not having her with me more often. Thanks Adam! We should start a support group. Small world!! Congrats to both of you! Well take it from me that it can work and it can be done! Strangely I wrote a similar post about dealing with relationships at university, different situation but similar advice after my own experiences.

What a great story, my long distance partner and I have been in a relationship for about a year and a half now, and we definitely agree with what you said here. Communication is one of the most vital cts of a long distance relationship, and if you get it right, you can have an amazing long distance relationship!

Long distance relationships can work, if you want them too! Well done, :. Hi Megan. Your story gives me hope at a time when i seem to not have much. My partner moved to Ireland after a farm was left to him by a deceased relative and i just returned from my second holiday there.

We were both living in Australia when we met. Wishing you all the best - feel free to reach out if you have any other questions at all; email is megan mappingmegan.

You only have to want to go through this. I met my Polish girlfriend online and we just started to talk Then I realized I fell in love! This is a great story!! And i think i can relate to its quiet well. I am from Australia and am currently dating a guy from America. Its just second nature now. Thankyou Laura! I loved reading your story.

Im Crazy For Him, But He Lives In Another Country. Am I Screwed?

If gave me some hope which I need and encouragement. I have plans to go see him when I graduate! For 3 months then I have to come back to work, but who knows right? I think you are right when you say if you want it you have to work for it.

Every time we skype it reminds me how much I like him.

Stories great luvjones gotta ex his with lives that life their in Falling a is there if it worth absolutely is overseas someone dating military online someone by feet your Plan caste, our after month a in Falling etc members million 1 over with love true abroad, someone dating international as more ever grows dating online boyfriend my met i.

I wish he was here. I think I am more of the romantic one. He is caring but less romantic. I wish for a bit more romance but I think it comes more naturally for some people. So I will just have to try to plant ideas for him :p. But congratulations on your marriage! Hopefully one day I can write a similar happy fate to my story! Yes, totally takes commitment and a hard haul, though as you said yourself, you find it getting easier after a while, and talking via Skype or on the phone becomes your new normal, and second nature.

I am actually truly thankful for our long distance relationship as our circumstances really made us forced to communicate with each other and all we could do was talk. I think that built a really solid foundation for our relationship today :.

Reading your own story gives me hope beacuase not seeing someone you so care about for 10months seems so hard. Firstly, hope you have a wonderful time in Australia.

So I really do believe that if you have found the right person you can overcome anything, including being apart and maintaining your relationship long distance. Great post and an excellent love story! I agree completely with not listening to negative comments.

We spent a few months doing the long distance relationship from California to Seoul and at times it was tough, but honestly it made our relationship stronger. Long story short, I quit my job and was on a plane to Korea after only 4 months and now we are traveling together.

Thanks Megan - so glad to hear your love story worked out also! And the distance absolutely makes you stronger. So glad to hear another happy story! Enjoy the road! This story really gave me hope. We maintained contact since then and recently started dating. It is a long distance and the time difference between our places is an hour. He usually texts me before leaving to work and sometimes during his breaks and I do the same. And we also have a language barrier which makes communication even more difficult.

Any advice on how I can make things a little easier? My advice there would be to perhaps try and schedule times to talk - as in figure out a time every few days or once a week which works for both of you and block it out in each of your calendars, just as you would for a date.

It might just work out. Hi this is my story, i went on holiday 4 years ago to Gran Canaria a Spanish island 4 years ago, i went with my daughter and we used to go in a bar we liked and there was a guy who worked there who we got friendly with. He told me he really liked me and was always so excited to see me.

the going

Anyway we spent every night i went in together and realised i really liked him. We had a few kisses and that was it, he asked me if i wanted to go back to his but never did, he was ok with that. It sounds like an incredible connection to have spanned so many years - he obviously feels strongly for you, especially as he was respectful on the night you did finally embrace each other.

Beautiful story! Thanks for sharing the tips about how to communicate with your long distance sweetheart. I totally agree with you that we should never listen to the negative naysayer. Thanks Liem! So glad you enjoyed our story.

Though those who can keep going despite that and come out the other end usually reap the rewards! What a beautiful love story. Thanks for sharing! I am also in an international long distance relationship as we met in Florida when he was here for some work. We were together for 8 months before he went back to the western hemisphere to work in the Mediterranean. We have been doing the long distance portion for about 10 months. You completely nailed it on the negativity portion.

Friends and family often question if he is the right one for me. Your blog was definitely something I needed to read! Thankyou Vivian! I met this guy on a two-week study abroad program in China, who I am absolutely head over heels for. We got so incredibly close and just infatuated that all our friends on the trip and abroad claimed it was the beginning of our love story and we were going to get married one day.

Coming home and back to reality and talking to my friends about it, the reality of that happening seems hard, but I really want to make it work.

workman always

Hi Tatiana - so psyched to hear youve met someone amazing - congrats! Keep up the texting, and for now if it all seems like too much and hard to fathom, just start out by taking it day by day. Trying to plan out your whole future at once can be really overwhelming and make your head spin, so start out by setting up a routine of when you talk - regular video chats via Skype or FaceTime is a great place to start :. After that try and plan to take a trip somewhere together - Mike and I used our distance as an opportunity to meet up in the middle and travel together for 2 weeks every few months.

This also gave us something to look forward to before he made the first move and spent 12 months in Aus. I am absolutely in love with this story. I actually met my guy while I was on a cruise. We stopped over on an island and went shopping and he was working at a booth selling things. I was hot and frustrated waiting on the shuttle driver to come back and get us to take us back to the ship and he started talking to me.

I was really not interested but just to pass time I said what the heck. Well to make a long story short.

may look

Well I got his information but took it down wrong. We chatted then we talked and the rest is history. I go over and see him often. His family loves me and I them. So glad to hear your story Angel! He came to Brazil in to study and look for a job, he stayed 3 months the maximum period with the tourist visa but since he had then recently graduated without professional experience he had no luck and had to go back to Paris.

Firstly, the biggest thing is to tune out the negativity as much as you possibly can. The reality is that one of you will eventually have to make the sacrifice and the move, though the other reality is that it has to be right for you both as well.

I really loved the advice you gave for how to keep up with an LDR. We both live in Florida in the U. S and I just got accepted to my dream art college in Portland, Oregon. The problem is we can only communicate and no chance of visiting each other. PLane tickets are a fortune and I can only pay for one in-between semesters. Do you think we could really make it work? I need advice I met Mike with 2 years left of my college degree in Australia, our deal was that I was going to graduate and then I would move with him to the USA.

I think that giving up an education at one of the best schools, and the potential at a career path which you would love is something you may potentially regret down the line. And the absence really does make the time you do have together every months that much sweeter. My girlfriend is from America and I am from Australia, we met on a chat site one night because we were both bored. After talking for 7 hours straight I discovered that we are the same with ethnicity Vietnamese and we are both pre med students and same age After 5 months of talking we decided to meet In Thailand, her parents would of no way approved of this so we had to plan everything secretly.

So for two weeks we are spending time traveling together across Thailand. There were times within the trip where she had to leave my side to do the volunteer work at school to work with disable children.

So this is me checking in with one week left with her. The first night meeting her I was absolutely in love with this Individual and as each day comes I begin to fall harder for her. Hi Khoi, thanks for reaching out - and congrats on having met someone truly amazing; really does sound like the stars aligned!! I think that there are definitely negative connotations with having met in a chat room online, so my first piece of advice to you both would be to tell your friends and family you met while in Thailand.

Even though Mike and I met in person, the rumors that flew through my extended family was that I was heading off a few months later to meet a guy I met online, and the judgement was ridiculous.

wheel gets the

So that would be tip one. Your geographical situation is exactly the same as Mike and Mine, with me being from Aus and him being from the US. You could even look into the possibility of a 12 month student exchange program for one of you if that would work. Communication is the biggest key. Because there WILL be a next time.

Hope that helps! Enjoy the rest of your time in Thailand - wishing you both all the best XXX. She finishes her schooling next year and starts her medicine degree year after that.

I however have two years left before starting my med degree. Keeping positive and just thinking if there is a will there is a way, I am a massive commitment-phobe but with her its all worth it. Hi Megan! Thanks again for responding! For a bit after that she will come to Australia with me for an Aussie Christmas and New Years, will take her to Great Barrier Reef because she loves diving and wildlife and then after that mid I will be traveling to the states again for two months which she will be done studying and taking a gap year which we will travel around the world and do volunteering in Vietnam and travel as we are both Vietnamese and she has never been.

Sounds like a fantastic start! Yep, Thanksgiving is a big one over in the States. A big family based holiday. I live in Puerto Rico and i am in a long distance relationship with someone from China.

The problem is maybe it will take some time to finally meet each other. Sometimes i just feel i am losing the motivation to continue with the relationship and ignoring the possibility to find my love here. I feel maybe if we share more about each other we can keep this feeling alive.

I recently found that i am a little insecure because of his culture women stereotypes. I also feel he will change his mind about me in any moment because of his parents pressure to marry a chinese girl or maybe because of differences in habits or lack of conversation topics.

Sometimes i feel is not healthy and realistic to say we love each other without having met before. I wish you happiness to you and your husband! I am so happy you found each other. I know everything is possible in this world no matter what people says. Love is real!

Hi Roxana, thanks for reaching out and sharing your story. It could very well work out amazingly for you, and many people have had positive experiences having met online, though I think that it is really important to meet in person, and I think this will tell you a lot about the relationship going forward.

Hey Megan, I love your story its amazing and relatable. Im in LDR too, we have been talking for almost a year. We talked about meeting but neither of us are travelers like you and mike lol. He tells me we ll make it work but like you said Visas are pain and Im kind busy with studies.

If you, like me, dedicate a large portion of your time to travel, and spend more time traveling than you are resident in your own country, you're more than likely to meet someone overseas. Hello there! How exciting this all must be for you! I'm happy for you and all the wonderful possibilities:) I had known my (now) husband for about 11 months before we ever met face-to-face. Our story is kind of a long and unusual one, but I'll tr. Meeting someone overseas is something that has become common in today's dating world. If you're a woman making this trip here are six steps you should take. 6 Things You Should Do When Meeting Someone Overseas. I know personally of a lot of women meeting men online in other countries and then uprooting their entire lives to move to said.

Any ideas? Wish you happy marriage! Hi Yazmina! I think you do need to meet physically to really, truly know though. Just based on the ease of Visas I would have it a guess that it would be easier for you to travel to meet him there, though you could consider both taking a vacation and meeting somewhere half way instead of one person visiting the other in their hometown - Mike and I first met up in Scotland after we started dating, and we actually both booked onto a group tour of the country.

I hope it works out amazing for you both : Until you do actually meet, the best you can do is to keep that communication live and the video chats are a great way of doing that :. Sometimes love is so u4rodeos.comedictable, thanks for your story Megan. We meet each other twice or three times a year the most.

I have a good career and he has a business, it seems that this thing make us difficult who wants to sacrifice. I hope our ending story can be like your story with Mike. May God bless always bless your marriages Megan. I think the biggest thing which kept Mike and I going was that we had planned out what we wanted to happen and who was going to move etc, so even though it was something like a two year plan, we still had something which we were working towards and I think this really helped.

In the end it does come down to sacrifice. And one of you is going to have to make that sacrifice if you want to be together in the same spot. For instance I left my career in law behind in Australia when I moved to the States, and when I got there I had 3 months before my work visa came through.

Not knowing how the hell to spend my time alone while Mike was out working to pay the bills, I started working on a new online project and created this blog. Now the blog is my career and we travel around the world from it.

Anyway reading your story makes me more positive about the future, your advice encourage me to be more optimist. Thank you so much megan. By the waydo u have any children yet? Congrats on your relationship Drashti! Being apart really does suck, but if you keep up the communication, and maintain a determination to make it work from both sides then anything is possible, and it makes the time you do spend together even more special.

I guess with myself being Cabin Crew its easier for me than most to see him more often than I would otherwise be able to. Congratulations to you both and I hope to be able to send you our wedding pics in the not to distant future :.

Thanks LT : And congrats on your relationship too! Absolutely send through your wedding pics when the day does arrive : All the best to you both, and happy travels!

Thank you for this. Particularly the part about the negativity. My story is different and it is bizarre in fact. I met the love of my life when I was By the time they broke up a couple of weeks, we were just kids I was besotted with him and he felt the same.

Shortly after our first date, his mother moved them away and stuck him in boarding school. Hours of texting and phonecalls later, he had become my best friend. Much of the reason I love him to this day is that having only those methods of communication meant we left all pretences behind. Life has taken us down many roads. I moved to the otherside of the world.

His life has been stunted by being stuck in a country ravaged by the gfc, meanwhile I have a great career. I go home for Xmas in 79 days and I will see him for the first time since I alternate between overwhelming excitement and fear.

And, most terrifying of all, what if it is perfect and I have to get back on a plane after 3 weeks of perfection and leave him to return to life on the otherside of the planet? The biggest piece of advice I would give is to not overthink it or try and force anything. Too many people try to control the unknown which just never works out. Oops, continued: check in and let you know the outcome. Thanks again for taking the time to respond. Great points that I look forward to applying x.

Your story is admirable. I find solace in your words. My story is a bit more complex as it involves the app Tinder, which a lot of people think is just an app for people that want to hook up.

While on vacation in Dubai I turned on the app and began swiping. I wanted to enjoy sightseeing and nothing more. When I got back home in the U. I turned on the tinder app again and a guy that is from Australia but lives in Dubai had sent me messages.

We started chatting and I discovered that he is just truly what I have been looking for. He has all the qualities that I have not been able to find in anyone else here where I live. I am smitten with him. A week into chatting with him he sent me red roses and a box of chocolate for my birthday.

I know he too is smitten with me because he tells me all the time.

Dating someone who lives abroad

He is planning to come see me soon. Very soon. This makes me a bit nervous because we have only been chatting and sending voice notes for 11 days. Is it too soon for him to come see me? Before we make plans for him to come see me I would like to get to know him for a bit longer via whatsapp and facetime. I really do feel though, as if he could be the one for me. He has a successful career in Dubai. All these questions make me anxious. What is your advice? If it starts to get serious THEN you can worry about making a plan, and who knows, by then he could have organized a transfer with work or you could have finished your study.

impressions are
