#Surfbot: We’re 9,349 Miles Apart But Still Keep Hot In The Bedroom
I live in Orlando. He lives in Australia. At any given moment, there are 9,349 miles (plus, one hell of an expensive airplane ticket) separating me from my boyfriend. In fact, our time zones are so far apart that he technically lives “in the future” (because, right now, it’s already tomorrow in Sydney). Let me be clear, this man is the greatest love of my life. He’s on my mind and in my heart constantly, but I only see him four times a year for 2-week visits, and you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Our relationship is pretty close to perfect, though naysayers give us an earful about it all the time. “You’re crazy.” “It will never last!” “How long can you sustain a long-distance relationship like that (and why would you even bother)?” “What kind of future can you possibly have?” Actually, we have a rather bright, exciting, and beautiful future, thank-you-very-much. We’re almost two years into this global romance of ours and it’s the happiest, sexiest, and most meaningful relationship either of us have ever experienced. We’ve discovered that far-flung love comes with some surprising (and pretty darn spectacular) benefits.
So, naysay all you want, cohabitating couples! When it comes to true relationship satisfaction, you might be the ones missing out.
He’s tall, dark & handsome and has a sexy Australian accent. I’m a woman who was previously lost in a loveless marriage who’s finally blossoming into herself post-divorce. We board planes and fly halfway around the world just to be together. We get dressed up and go on amazing dates with twinkling city skyline backdrops. We kiss in public (often and unabashedly). We lay on picnic blankets in the park. We stay up talking and laughing all night. Every moment together feels darling and sexy. But the best part is: this is my real life.
I’m an ordinary person. He’s an ordinary person. But we’re building a beautiful relationship together because for us, a life of passion trumps a life of cohabitating proximity. Naysayers always focus on the hardship of time spent apart. We focus on the heartfelt joy and deep connection that comes from time spent together, which (precisely because we haven’t seen each another in awhile) is always exciting, full of love, full of romance, and spent exploring new adventures together. Heck, after four months apart, even ordinary moments like grocery shopping or doing laundry together feel sweet and oh-so-romantic.
