I met my girlfriend over a year ago online, we got along instantly and she quickly became my best friend.
We have not gone one day without talking since we met, the first time we Skyped it lasted 5 hours and felt like one. I knew that I wanted to date her more than anything, but it was a bit complicated as I lived in Texas and she lived in Spain. For a year we stayed friends, although I was very much in love with her we knew it would only make things harder to date so far away.
After I was finally accepted by my university to study abroad in Spain we decided to make it official. As much as I loved every moment with her before, the difference of having someone physically with you is incredible. I have only been in Spain for two months but the time we have had together is priceless. I have to return home in June to finish studies and we will face another 6 months to a year apart.
Bond gives us the chance to be that much closer until I can see her again and it gives me comfort that we will never be completely apart.
