We have had a year of long-distance relationships.


This is the story of a 34-year-old woman who has had a long-distance relationship in Japan and Australia for about a year.

We got along with a friend’s introduction

We met when we were in high school through a friend’s introduction.

We knew each other because we were close to each other and had some friends in common, but we had never talked to them.

When I broke up with him who I was dating at the time, I started playing with a common friend who introduced me to him.

I confess and go out with you

When it came time to go out, I made a confession.
Before I was introduced to my friends, I was a person who liked the atmosphere since I was acquainted with him.

When I actually played with him, he was a very calm person with me so that I didn’t have to search for words even if I became silent.

Even if I played with them, it didn’t become a confession, so I confessed with courage, thinking that I would end up as a friend.
I think I said straight “I want you to go out with me!”

He also said straight to me, “OK!” And our dating started.

He studied abroad and long-distance relationship started

We attended the English department of the same university.

He didn’t seem to be thinking about studying abroad at the beginning of the relationship, but he went to Australia because of the influence of the fact that he was studying abroad one after another.

I also considered studying abroad, but I gave up because my parents objected to me.
For about two years we have had a long-distance relationship.

Frequency of dates during long-distance relationships

I was able to meet him when I was back home for about two weeks during the summer vacation and during the New Year holidays.

Sudden surprise from boyfriend

When I was dating him, I was living alone, but one day when I returned from a part-time job, he who was supposed to be in Australia was in the room …!

Before the long-distance relationship began, I handed over the key and joked, “You can come back whenever you want,” but I was really surprised.

I was surprised but very happy.

My failure in long-distance relationship…

I played with other people of the opposite sex because of my loneliness.

In the end, I had another favorite person and I broke up, so I think it was a big mistake in long-distance relationships.

I lost the loneliness of a long-distance relationship.

I broke up with the person who gave me the opportunity to break up for about a year, but I still wonder if I would have been married to him if I hadn’t lost the loneliness at that time.

Because there was no LINE…

When we were dating, we didn’t have a convenient app like LINE, so we used Mixy for letter exchange, email, and SNS.

At that time, international calls cost a lot of money, so it took about 5 minutes to make a call once in a while.

What you think is necessary for a successful long-distance relationship

Have other hobbies.

I was the type of person who loved romance, so I couldn’t stand the loneliness of long-distance relationships.

I’m sure that if I were an independent type of woman who had other hobbies that I could be absorbed in, I would have been able to have a long-distance relationship better.

I wasn’t sad during my long-distance relationship…

He wasn’t particularly sad because he tried not to make me feel lonely during a long-distance relationship.

However, if I mention one, I was the saddest when I decided to study abroad.

I didn’t really like it, but I couldn’t stop thinking it was his life.
