A forgettable first meeting, another reintroduction, strings of BBM chats and an awkward double date in a Padang restaurant left Christopher and Editha interested with each other. They became closer and closer, but Christopher had to go to college overseas.
Editha, on the other hand, did not believe in long distance relationships. She’s curious whether this relationship will work or not. The time he left, she felt really comfortable with him. It took 7 months before so she decided to try.
“During that time, our relationship was not always smooth,” said Editha, “Often, our insecurities and lack of communication make us misunderstood each other.”
Editha shared us a few tips to make this relationship lasts:
Commitment. “We’re not in a relationship for the fun only. We’re the serious type. We’re both looking for someone to share our lives with and we’re comfortable with each other. So, we’re committed to make this relationship work.”
Respect. “We know and accept each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and weirdnesses. Hahaha.”
