This week we share the love story of a couple who fell in love and jumped right into an adventure. Although not the easiest path to take, they have come out stronger! Read their story below and get inspired!
Matthew & Anh
Status: Dating for 1 year and 3 months
How did you meet?: We both went to the same Crossfit gym and got to talking because we were both living in the same city.
When did you realize you were in love?: One year and 3 months ago
What qualities in each other make you a good match?: We’re both introverts but have been looking for something else in life but the daily grind, which is what brought us to traveling the world together to explore what is out there
What is your perfect date night?: A perfect date night for us is to cook together while enjoying some wine and cuddling on the couch with a good movie
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced as a couple and how did you get through it?: Our biggest challenge yet has been our traveling adventure together. It was stressful at first to manage the unknowns of traveling the world on a very limited budget, but through open communication, we are working on resolving our differences
What is one thing you would like to improve about your relationship?: We would like to re-spark our romance as the constant traveling has put a damper on it.
What advice would you go back and give yourselves when you just started dating?: We should have not jumped into traveling the world together so soon. It would have been better if we had taken smaller trips first to get to know each other as travel companions while saving more money for the big world trip
