You can instantly 'know' things. Well, your soul knows. However, our 'logic' and our 'reasoning' go into battle mode with the soul, telling us
it's all BS. That it's either lust or infatuation. And sometimes it truly is. Yes, sometimes it is.
The world is so noisy and contradicting to the soul. Our soul always knows how to heal itself, but we let the world instead, dictate for us. We allow
past experiences (or lack thereof) to frighten us into believing such things cannot be real. Especially when someone else who has never experienced
such things, comes along and tells us it is only lust or infatuation.
People also say that LDR (Long Distance Relationship) are doomed from the start. This idea runs contrary to the millions of people who first met via
an LDR, took the time to get an idea of who the other person was, and eventually became long term partners in real life. I personally know several
this has happened to. One couple, now going on twenty years of marriage.
Alas, it takes two people to invest in the relationship. As long as she feels the same, it sounds like you hold something good in your hands. And you
should, this very moment, not ask anyone else whether it is true or not. Obviously, to the both of you, it is real love. Who cares what someone else
may project onto you. It isn't their reality. It's yours.
I believe that two people meet for a reason. Always. There is never a coincidental meeting of two people. Even if that person comes in to your life
only to sit next to you on a train one day, and tell you something positive when you are feeling lost in life. They come as teachers or students. They
come as friends and lovers. But always for a reason.
Hopefully, one day you will not live both abroad from each other, and you will work out the way to be together. Just remember not to make it so hard.
It really isn't hard. Once you make the decision, find the way. It is only when you don't 'truly' desire to be together that you will make
excuses. As long as you both want, you shall have.
Ah! I am both happy and sad about it for personal reasons. haha I wish you fortitude and honesty and the best of outcomes. Don't listen to anyone
else. Just listen to your soul. When two people feel the same thing, what do you need to ask?
Wishes of happiness for you!
