Three years ago, Dani and I started dating! I have always gotten a ton of questions about our relationship, how we met and what is next for us. So, in honor of our anniversary, I put together a bit of an FAQ post. Before we jump into that, I want to just express how grateful I am for this guy. Dani is the most hardworking, kind and considerate person I know. I am so lucky to be loved by him. I’ve included some of my favorite photos of us throughout these past three years and as I was going through them, I couldn’t help but tear up. I love this guy.
Are you getting married? If so, when?
This is by far the most common question I am asked both in real life and online. Dani and I have talked about marriage and the life that we want together when we are older. We are going to wait 3-4 years to get married for some personal and financial reasons. (See you in Summer 2021 😉 )
How’d you meet?
Dani and I met my first year and his sophomore year of college. He attended Harvard College and I went to a party there during my first weekend at Wellesley. We met that night, had our first kiss that night (it was my 19th birthday!) and exchanged numbers. He texted me late that night to make sure I was home safe and invited me on a date the next day. To say I was excited was an understatement.
Have you guys experienced long distance?
We have had a few periods of long distance (90 days apart being the longest when I was living in Amsterdam in Fall 2016). Right now, we are in a period of nine months of long distance. I am finishing my last year at Wellesley College and he is attending his first year of medical school. We will see each other hopefully every month (if we are lucky!) to make the distance easier. Long distance is never easy but we love that it makes reunions so sweet.
What advice do you have for long distance couples?
I wrote an entire post all about long distance that may help! I think the most important thing is having good communication. Try and text or call on the phone every day. Remember, that long distance isn’t forever and soon enough you will be back together again!
Did you travel to Europe together?
Yes! We went to Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and France together during the winter holidays of 2016/17. It was the most magical trip ever. I have a lot of vlogs on my YouTube channel from our travels together!
Until next time,
