Today we are talking to Olivia & Zach from US who are in a long distance relationship since this year January, here they share with us a little bit about their love story and how they make it work.
How long have the two of you been together?
How did you both meet?
We met in gym class Olivia’s freshman year and Zach’s sophomore year. We had mutual friends and pretty much hit it off right away.
How did you find out about LoveByte?
Zach: I found out about it through Instagram with random people and I thought it was something nice for me and Olivia to do to share our experiences and highlight our relationship.
How/What do you use LoveByte for mostly?
Olivia: I like putting pictures with the date of an important event so we can reminisce later. I also love being able to see how many days we’ve been together.
Zach: Mostly to see how long that we’ve been together, I’m not going to lie, it’s nice seeing an exact day count of how long you’ve been together with your significant other. Then also to highlight major events in our time together.
What is your favourite activity (date) to do together?
Olivia: To be honest, I just like being together with Zach. But I like going out to dinner and ice cream, then going home and watching a movie.
Zach: Probably going on vacations with Olivia, but even still, when we were together to relax on Sundays it was very nice. Even though we didn’t do much on those days I still loved her company.
Discuss one of the most testing challenges you have faced so far, as a couple and how do the two of you ultimately resolve it/still work on it?
Olivia: It’s difficult with him being across the country since he left for the military this year january, but we can still text, call, and skype which makes it easier. When the other’s person’s feeling down about not being able to see each other we always make sure to cheer them up and make them smile.
Zach: In the past was when we both didn’t drive and couldn’t just easily see each other and do stuff whenever we wanted and currently it’s her being back home and getting ready for college in PA and me being in Nevada for the Air Force.
How often do you see each other?
Olivia: I went to see him graduate from basic training in march, and he got to come home from tech school in May, but other than that we’ll probably only be able to see each other every six months or so.
That can be pretty hard, what’s your best advice for other long distance lovers?
Olivia: My tip for couples when you’re feeling lonely would have to be to write them a letter, call them, or text them and tell them how you feel. If they are unable to do those things, you can reminisce on your relationship, or re-read stuff they wrote to you, or even hang out with friends and family that will help you try to feel less lonely.
How does LoveByte help you in your relationship?
Olivia: I like that we can look back at special dates in our relationship. Sometimes we sit there, go through it and think about the great memories we made/are making.
Zach: I like it because it’s a way to basically “brag” about our relationship. Haha
What is the best advice you could give couples for a happy and harmonious relationship?
Olivia: Be honest with your significant other, no matter what; an honest relationship is a happy relationship. Also, always remember that you always love that person. Even if you’re fighting, that doesn’t mean you stopped loving them.
Zach: Have complete trust in your partner and cherish each moment together even if you don’t see each other that much. If you love each other, trust each other and have patience, you’ll make it in the long run.
