We started dating in October but I was leaving to study abroad in France in January. We eventually had “the talk” and he told me he wanted to stay together. I was touched that he didn’t want to break up or try to convince me to stay in the States. When he flew to visit me in March, I told him it was the single greatest gesture anyone had ever made. While he was visiting, he told me he loved me.
Postscript: It’ll be two years this October and he’s still the man of my dreams.
