It’s been a while since I’ve been thinking about writing about real love stories. In our daily day at Desire we get sweet emails from couples all full of nice words, and I thought that would be interesting to share some of these stories with you. Always when the couple agrees with it!
So, here it comes one of these stories. Last July I got the following message thru Desire Twitter from Fury:
We’re college students who found your app about three weeks ago. We’ve been dating for about a year and a half and really think we can make it. Thing is that even though we go to school together, he leaves to study in Chile for half a year starting tomorrow. I leave for Japan for a semester starting the end of August.
I just wanted to legitimately thank you for this app. It’s a tremendous, honest, terrific idea (even if the iPhone version might need to iron out some endearing tech details) that’s really going to help us in the coming months. Just – thank you from the bottom of my heart. If my dearest Benjamin and I come out of this whirlwind okay I’d like to write again – endorsing you somehow, donating somehow, I don’t know. I just want to repay you somehow for being a genuine company that wants to help foster love. Thank you for changing people’s lives.
This message really touched me. It made my day! It made me super happy. Love is the most amazing thing in life and this was pure love. I replied back saying how happy that message made me and appreciating their time to write us a thank you and amazing note.
Before New Year’s eve, I got a new message from Fury, this time she sent me a picture of herself and her boyfriend Benjamin together with a short message saying it all. ‘We made it! Thank you Marta!!’
I feel grateful for being part of a project that brings fun, happiness and connexion to couples. I felt so happy when I saw that picture of them together and couldn’t be happier to read that they made it after living for some time miles and miles away from each other.
Some days after that second message, I got back to her and asked her if she would be okey with me writing this blog post and if she and Benjamin would like to reply a couple of questions. They happily agreed and here is what I asked them and what they said:
1) In general we tend to think that long distance relationships are hard or difficult, but I am sure they are full of amazing things! Can you share some of the best things about your long distance relationship?
Fury: Knowing that he was experiencing his life and being happy. It was hard not seeing that for myself, but it was great knowing it was happening.
Benjamin: Knowing that Japan had been a dream of hers for so long and that it was finally happening made it worth it, that we couldn’t see each other for a while.
2) How would you describe the love you feel for your love one?
Fury: It’s really beautiful to be in love with your best friend. I’d describe it as warm, and full of laughter, and generally a wonderful pick-me-up. I don’t lose myself in the relationship. I’m still me, I just laugh a good deal more.
Benjamin: Being in love feels motivational in that it gives me a drive to want to live the most fulfilling life that I can. I know that I have a teammate that is there to pick me up and put me on my feet when I fall or cheer me on when I succeed. The highs feel higher while the lows can be more easily fixed. We really just work as partners like that.
Thanks guys for sharing this with us!
You are a lovely couple.
Hope you like that story as much as I do 🙂
