Truly Cooked

A Long Distance Love Story

Sorry to disappoint some of you, but this story isn’t about sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but true love instead.

A few years ago I met a really charming British guy while on a skiing holiday in Whistler and we hit it off like a house on fire. I was with my girlfriends and he was with his family, but we still managed to find the time to go on a few dates in the resort while we were there.

Sadly the time came when we had to say goodbye and as I lived in Toronto and he lived in London, I thought I would never see him again. Especially as all we had done was share a long kiss goodnight when he walked me home on our last date.

We said an emotional goodbye on the morning he left and to my surprise he gave me a huge bunch of roses and a really beautiful letter. In the letter he told me that he had never met someone like me before and he wanted to stay in touch, and stay in touch we did.

After a few months of e-mailing each other and weekly skype dates, I can honestly say I was head over heels in love with him. But the fact remained we lived thousands of miles away from each other.

Then one day I came back from work to find another bunch of roses on my porch, I bent down to pick them up and heard in a really sexy British accent…”did you miss me beautiful?”!!! It was my man…he had quit his job, got a Canadian working visa and flown to Toronto to surprise me!!! He moved straight into my place and we spent the most amazing summer together.

One weekend we went on a camping trip together and on our last night, sat under the stars cuddled up around a camp fire, he asked me to marry him. We are now happily married and expecting our first child together, and all because of a chance meeting on the slopes.

So ladies and gentlemen, when you’re next backpacking and you meet a special someone, don’t ever let distance get in the way. You never know, that special someone might make you as happy as mine has made me.
