Love is really amazing. I am an extremely passive girl who never let anybody know about my feelings to them. I always wraps everything secretly in my heart and wait until the one I love, come to me and talk to me: "Baby, I am falling in love with you". But, it seems not true in this story when Love speaks its voice. ;)
We met each other accidently in a camping activity. He is not a handsome guy who attracts me at first sight but he has somethings to make me curious. After playing some small funny games with our friends, I realised that he has good knowledge about history, literature and geography with a good memory as well. That was my first impression on Him.
He by some ways had my phone number and got contact to me. He invited me to his football match. Hmm, I loved watching him play football. :)
Naturally, we talked on phone quite often. We shared every moments, affairs and stories happening around us everyday. He gave me advices and I sent him encouragements. He said that "We know each other in short time, but I feel you are my soulmate." I perceived his sentiments to me more than that simple sentence, I kept it myself.
At that moment, I was a 23 years old, just graduated from my university about 2 months and decided to work overseas in Singapore. My application was approved, I didnt let him know about that. Ten days to my departure date, I made up my mind to confess my own feelings by sending him a short messege: "Are you busy tonight? I have something important to talk to you, 8 pm pick me up pls." I sent my sms at 6:30pm and exactly 8 pm, I saw him downstairs waiting for me. That was my first time that I was initiative to confide my heart to a man. I directly told him that:"I think I fall in love with you whether you are able to wait for me for 3 years or not. If not, then forget it."
He held my hands tightly and our long distance love from that moment started.
On 26th November 2014, I brang along his love to Singapore, the country with 1 hour faster time zone than Vietnam. I still remember the poem of somebody I cannot remember, written in Vietnamese
Long distance love is a big challenge to us because the separation is not only in distance but also in one's heart. He could not run to me when I need his shoulders, he also could not wipe my tears when I was depressed. Moreover, he for sure could not relieve my anger when he did not stay by my side. I did everything by my own, no dating, no flowers, no chocolate, no sweet moments. Everything we could do is listening each other 's voice through the phone, or watching each other by video call. That is really difficult to get used to with.
Sometimes I extremely felt jealous with couples on the road, unconsciously looked at them and thought of him.
Despite of loving far away more than 2500km distance, our love still lasts till now after 3 years. Love is not in pink all the time, we also experienced stressful and tough moment, arguments, sulks and misunderstandings. Overcoming those, though, our love seems greater than anything.
