Happy Valentine’s everyone! I know this is a commercial date, but being the romantic person that I am, I still enjoy celebrating it and reminding myself (and my hubby) that we are together on this date. I love to see people walking on the streets with flower bouquets and holding hands with smiles on their faces (as if saying, let’s make tonight special in every single way, if you know what I mean). I do believe that people who make an effort to please the other half on Valentine’s, tend to be happier too.
We met at a New Year’s party I went to with one of my best friends. The only contact I had with a “gringo” before was a kiss I shared with a guy I met whilst doing my exchange student programme during high school in America. That night at the party I think when I heard English being spoken, I realised I was ready for my second “foreigners kiss”. We saw each other and as if a magnet connected us, we approached each other, he said “do you speak English” and I said “yes I do, kiss me” (I know, I was very hard to get!). And just like that my first foreign love entered my life.
Hello everyone! I’ve been thinking recently about how lucky I am. Why? Because I have found the man of my dreams, have married and now have a baby together. It helped a lot that we already knew each other, both lived in London (and want to continue living here) and I was already familiar with the English culture. What about couples who have met, fallen in love and decided to get married in order to be together? Have you thought through all the points in question that could make or break a relationship? Are you really ready to move for love?
Once upon a time I was in Brazil and had fallen in love with an American. I thought he loved me and that we were going to end up together. The distance was not in our favour and the relationship didn’t survive, as he didn’t want to come to Rio to wait for me to finish my studies and neither asked me to move in with him. Thankfully with Dan things were different. I have always been fond of England and was determined to stay. I had to leave, request my fiancé visa in order to come and get married to him. So this time around it was easier to pursue the relationship as we both wanted to continue living in London.
However is not the case for some couples who are deciding whether move to England or to another country. So if you have been asked recently by an English gentleman or English lady to come over here, there are eight points to consider if you decide to move into this country:
