Hey, in case you didn't know, long distance relationships CAN work!
In this blog, I’m going to be taking you on a journey of a successful LDR couple… As it states in the title, they live over 4,000 miles away from each other and still make it work! (Insane, right!?)
So, without further ado, here is the story of a LDR couple named Olivia and Felix!
In fall of 2014, Olivia was part of her high school's volleyball team in Minnesota...
A foreign exchange student named Felix had flown to the U.S. for the school year. Back in Germany, Felix was also a volleyball player. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a boy’s volleyball team at Olivia’s school, so instead, Felix became the manager of the girl’s team! Over the course of the volleyball season, Olivia and Felix became closer and closer.
Olivia’s teammates noticed, so they made a plan for her and Felix to go to prom together! (Now that’s what I call good friends!) Thankfully, the plan worked out, and they went together as a date. Sadly, Felix had to go back to Germany in June of 2015, so they tried to hang out as much as possible before then.
When Felix flew back home, him and Olivia were just friends - nothing more.
A year late in July of 2016, Olivia used her high school graduation present to buy a plane ticket to visit Felix in Germany for two weeks!
She described her trip as amazing, full of good food, and lots of sightseeing. They kept in contact, and on December 22nd of 2016, they took the plunge and started a long distance relationship! Crazily, they live 4,453 miles away from each other!
When asking them what their best advice for making a LDR work...
With Olivia in the U.S. and Felix in Germany, their time difference is 7 hours!
When asking what makes their LDR so special, Olivia said:
In August of 2019, Felix surprised Olivia with something amazing...
Huge congratulations to the happy LDR couple, Olivia and Felix!
