Romance can bloom anywhere, but for most old-style dating enthusiasts, it’s not uncommon to find love overseas. Perhaps it’s love at first sight or maybe you really connected with someone that you met at a bar.
Maybe you’ve personally met someone on holiday and you’re now fawning over them, convinced that they’re the love of your life because you match on a spiritual level. Those types of feelings are incredibly hard to ignore, and you might find yourself sobbing when you realize you’ve only got a day left in that paradise before you return home. The next thing you know, you’ll be back in the UK sitting at your desk flipping through pictures on your phone, longing for the day you get to meet your destined partner once again.
But how do you deal with that romance once you’re home? What actions should you take, and should you pursue that long-distance relationship? If you truly have feelings for that person, then yes–absolutely!
Don’t do anything rash!
No matter how in love you are, it’s best to remember that you have responsibilities back at home. Don’t end up losing your job because you fell in love because it might not work out Always play it safe!
Don’t stay in the country for longer than you should and make sure you try your best to fit back into your regular routine.
Message each other!
Make sure you get each other’s phone numbers, WhatsApp details or even Facebook. This will help you stay in contact when you have to leave each other. As soon as you start messaging, you can stay in touch, meet up again or even discuss future plans! You’ll find yourself texting each other every single day until you can finally meet up again, but this is where things can start to get tricky.
Managing a long-distance relationship
Long-distance relationships are often dreaded because they’re not the easiest things to handle. You won’t see each other outside of FaceTime or video calling and it can be stressful trying to make things work when you both (likely) have responsibilities back at home. However, that’s why it’s even more important to put more work into the relationship to make it work.
You’ll probably have to start talking about who leaves home, or where you want to live together. If you’re lucky, then you might find that you both actually come from the same country and you were both on holiday! But even then, the chances of you both living in the same city back at home is quite unlikely, so someone is going to have to take the plunge!
Expect to travel more
Until you both make future plans to live together, you’ll have to continue your holiday romances by visiting each other on a more regular basis. Keep in mind that it can get quite expensive to travel so often, but if you’re both truly and deeply in love, then that’s not going to stop you!
