Haidi and Jeremiah

How We Met

We were introduced virtually by a mutual friend in November, 2014. Back then he was in the States, while I was in China. Neither of us was interested in starting a long distance relationship. Therefore, we just texted each other hi and I never really contacted him again. In December 2014, I had a ski vacation with friends. I didn’t know how to ski and I failed in learning, consequently, I was staying in resort while everyone else was gone skiing. I was bored and I saw his last text which I never replied in November. It was Christmas and I thought it would be nice to wish him a merry Christmas. He was in Christmas break too at his parents’ house. He was bored as well with nothing to do. So, not surprisingly, he replied to me very quickly. So there we were, two people bored over Christmas, and we started to chat with each other……then we chatted, and chatted, and we ended up chatting non-stop for one month, then two months, then three months.

Finally, at about my spring break time, we decided to meet each other in Thailand. It was at the end of March, which was also his birthday. So, I took the chance and headed to Thailand to meet, and it turned out very well. So well in fact, we started a two years long distance relationship. Only other people who have gone through it would know how hard it is. Then I finally to take the big step and moved to the States in 2016.

How He Asked

We were engaged in July, 2017, at my parents house in China. We had gone there on vacation. Suddenly during lunch, in front of the whole family, he went on his knee. I thought something was wrong with his knee…..and he showed me the ring. It scared me in. We were married in a civil ceremony in November 2017. We are going to have our wedding this July, in Thailand, the place where we first met.
