Both dreamed of great education and successful career so this summer affair was a total surprise as no one planned for this to happen and didn’t expect anything serious.

It is great to meet someone new and totally different, with other perspectives, challenges and plans. In these circumstances you are opening up to experiencing life in new ways. Ksenia and Andrii had no friends in common and knew nothing about each other’s past so there were no reasons for them to hold back as they never planned to continue their relationship in a real life. After their work was done they had a chance to travel the country for a few weeks and get to know each other better. This is exactly when they started to realize that this might be something more than just a summer fling. Young people rented a car and visited beautiful villages; they spent hours enjoying sunny beaches and clear water. After travelling for weeks they had no desire to return to their crowded and noisy cities but had no choice. Both of them had their own lives and dreams to pursue.

They remained friends as there was no chance to maintain romantic relationship on a distance. They both agreed that it was the best option for them, so the next following years they continued their communication via Skype and became aware of every little aspect of their lives; they gave each other recommendation on various topics as studying, working, parents issues and dating. During these years they both have had few attempts to date others and to build committed relationships. They both failed eventually as tried to revive the feelings they shared in Sri Lanka but only with other people. Ksenia and Andrii craved for feelings they only experienced while were in a couple: freedom, insatiable passion for life and love and adventurous spirit, so they decided to spend a few weeks together as a couple again and then figure out what to do next. Few weeks spent together were magical and turned into few months and then years. They both sacrificed their cities and started from a scratch – and no one was sorry afterwards.

Ksenia and Andrii shared a lot of common and never were bored with one another; never judged one another for previous mistakes and supported each other on the chosen path. The main secret of their successful relationship is mutual respect and desire to work to make their romance lasting. Apart from being lovers they are best friends and once in a while they visit Sri Lanka to distract themselves from daily routine and remind how it all started.


Larisa
and Daniel

It wasn’t an ordinary love story as it took almost a decade for Daniel and Larisa to realize that they meant to be together. This couple started as friends and later this feeling transformed into the deeper one. They managed to overcome all obstacles that kept them apart and to find a longed happiness.

It all started at the university when Larisa was a freshman student and Daniel was a staff member and 10 years older. It wasn’t love at first sight as first impression was quite negative - Larisa considered Daniel to be arrogant and shallow because he kept a distance and wasn’t eager to start a conversation. She always has been the type of person that would prefer older men but at that time dated a guy of the same age. They had on-again, off-again type of relationship and were expected to tie the knot eventually.

Daniel wasn’t her teacher but they had met often as there were a lot of friends in common and they visited the same places at the campus. Their communication was casual and no one of them ever had any romantic thoughts concerning each other – at least at the beginning. Nevertheless, they knew a lot about one another personal lives and Larisa learned that Daniel had tense relationship with his father. Probably this was the main reason of his departure 5 years later to Spain.

As time went by they grew closer, discovered many things in common and became friends. They felt very comfortable and natural with each other without any awkward silence moments. With time Larisa realized that he wasn’t arrogant but shy, kind and with great sense of humor. Later she was very sorry that they spent almost 5 years barely talking to each other and had only less than a year to appreciate mutual attachment.

Without any doubts the attraction was mutual and they both felt that the bond they shared was getting stronger but they couldn’t act on it as Daniel was married and soon planned leaving for Spain with his wife. Larisa also started to think over settling down and starting a family with her boyfriend of many years. Silently yet mutually they decided that they would stay friends and maintain their distance. With this in mind he left for four years and they barely talked to each other during this time keeping in touch mostly through their friends.

As time went by Larisa found out that Daniel got children, divorced and returned home almost a year ago. She herself never got married and had had few affairs that never were serious enough to bring them into the next level.

Finally, Larisa and Daniel had met at a friend’s wedding and admitted that missed each other greatly but didn’t want to interfere into personal life. Both free they felt the connection immediately and decided not to wait any longer. Few months later they moved together and married a year after. Today they are perfectly happy together and expecting a child.
