Once upon a time, you fell in love with someone who lived in the same place you did.
You shared the same culture. You knew the same people. You had the same expectations of what your life together would look like.
Now all you have to do is log into an online dating site and set your preferences to matches from anywhere. There’s no limit to who you can meet.
And if you fall in love with an exotic stranger who whisks you away from your boring, everyday life, all the better!
There is something magical about falling in love with a man who doesn’t live in the same country as you do. Distance fuels your passion. You spend hours on Skype or instant messenger. You feel free to open up to him in a way you’ve never felt with local guys. You’re so different, and yet you’ve never met anyone who understands you so well. You’re already calling him your soulmate.
But the odds are stacked against you, given it was a miracle that the two of you even met at all. The practicalities of figuring out how you’ll make this work don’t scare you. You’re ready to fight for your relationship.
Before you do, listen to this podcast with dating expert Amy Waterman. Amy speaks to Terah and Jeff Harrison of Make More Love Not War about her experiences loving and living overseas.
You’ll learn intimate stories she’s never shared anywhere else, including a failed engagement in her twenties and how living overseas changed her view of America. You’ll find out which well-known phrase is a red flag for international couples and the one trait you must have if you’re going to succeed.
