Long Distance Love
Are you a supporter of “long- distance” love? Do you think “All shall be well, and Jack shall have Jill,” even if the couple lives in different countries?
Apple, Banana, Cherry, and Dates are Chinese students pursuing degrees in the United States now. Apple broke up with her boy friend who was living in China.
Here is their conversation:
Apple: I broke up with my boyfriend yesterday.
Banana: W-h-y? He is cute and has always been nice to you.
Cherry: As the old Chinese saying goes: Far from thirsty cannot be hydrolyzed.
Dates: I have seen so many dramas recently among my friends. They just want boy friends here.
Apple: That is true. He has no idea what I am doing right now and I cannot understand what he is talking about. We cannot only say “I miss you and I love you” everyday by phone. Oh, and twelve-hour difference is another big problem.
Cherry: I understand. How long can love last without being together.
Banana: It does make sense to me. But I think if the couple really wants to be together, they can definitely make it happen, like my boyfriend and I. He is applying to graduate schools in the United States, I am sure he could come here next semester.
Dates: The reason you guys haven’t broken up is because you do not know many guys here. What you did, what you have done and what you are going to do is study, study, and study, harder and harder. You do not have social life here.
Apple: I cannot live on without boyfriends. It is not about how much I love him, only because I do not want to do everything alone.
Cherry: I have no idea. Maybe I can figure it out when it happens to me.
Love is the most beautiful word in the world. Everyone has their own opinions about it. Long- distance love is a big challenge for most people, especially those in different countries. However, couples who are in real love with each other cannot be separated by distance.
