We are uncovering the love stories of migme couples and we had the chance to first interview gearna, who shares with us about their story. Read till the end for a really sweet surprise!
How did you both meet?
We first met on social platform migme, and I (gearna) am from Indonesia, and my partner, mehedi_hasan21, is from Bangladesh. We first started chatting everyday and quickly built a strong bond. Even when we were busy, we felt like we were missing each other… I think it’s because we enjoy ourselves too much during our chats and I always found myself smiling at his messages. He would listen to me and care for me whenever I am feeling down.
Very soon, he confessed and said “I love you” to me, but I was not ready to say yes as I was unsure whether his feelings were true. Instead, I told him to wait and he agreed. He waited patiently and we maintained chatting everyday until I could feel that he was really sincere. Touched by his actions, I decided to accept his proposal.
We have been together for over 460 days, even though it is a long-distance relationship.
What’s one of the challenges you have faced so far?
We faced many nay-sayers who believed that our relationship is only ‘virtual’ and that we won’t last, because many people do not believe in online long distance relationships.
It was initially difficult to share this with our family and when they knew that our commitment was real, they became more accepting of our relationship. Our families have already spoken with each other, and they have agreed that we can get married as soon as possible after we graduate by the end of this year!
How does LoveByte help you in your relationship?
LoveByte really helps a lot for sharing our inner feelings. It’s easy to express ourselves with a perfect emoticon/sticker since we cannot see each other. We enjoy writing love notes for each other because it helps to keep our love alive. Reminders are useful in helping us remember our special day. I think it’s a perfect apps for couple and I strongly recommend it to more friends on mig!
What do you use LoveByte for mostly?
We love to use Secret Message. It’s really fun to receive and it makes me really feel so loved when I finally see what my partner has written for me.
How do you know he’s the one?
I know he is the one because I know whatever happens, he is not gonna leave me and we would not give up on each other easily. He always stays with me like my shadow. Whenever we have a fight, he never turns to anger and would try to calm me down. Everyday he tries to do something special for me just to make myself happy, and I appreciate all his effort.
I love it that he can read my mind and heart. When I am sad and i don’t know how to express myself but he understands. And we believe in each other. I can say we love each other truly and I know no one else can love me like he does.
What’s the next big milestone for your relationship?
In 3 months, we will be meeting for the first time in Hong Kong and Macau for our first date! After which, his family (parents and sister) will join from Bangladesh to visit my family in Indonesia, and I will travel with them to visit his family in Bangladesh!
We are both really excited and looking forward to the day and we’re sure we will be creating many happy memories together as we see each other for the first time.
We are really excited for the couple and we wish them all the best!
