1. Julie and her French amour
Julie Herniak's love story has once again proven that love transcends distance, language, and race. Julie, a Polish Canadian from Spain, met her French lover through an online dating site. Right off the bat, the language barrier was their first and greatest challenge. The man knew very little English, and all she knew in French was "Bonjour" and "Je suis Julia."
Although communicating was a struggle due to the different languages they speak, it never stopped them from consistently keeping in touch. Julie tried her best to communicate in French. She would write her thoughts down in French before skyping each other. And although she would struggle to pronounce and enunciate the words correctly, all that mattered to them was to get their messages across.
Julie’s French boyfriend eventually came to Spain to live with her. Despite all the obstacles they had to hurdle, but patience, persistence, and passion, they managed to make it work.
2. Poline and Marco
Poline and Marco’s love story started through a dating website. Poline, a Filipina recalled that in an effort to get her attention, Marco who is an Italian would always “like” her photos. Intrigued by his seemingly unique way of getting her attention, Poline messaged Marco eventually. What started with a simple conversation slowly grew to an intimate and affectionate relationship.
They dated online for two months when coincidentally, Poline was sent to Italy for work. This was the most opportune time for them to finally meet. Their first meeting, as she fondly recalls, was nothing short of a fairytale. From the moment they both laid eyes on each other, they knew that they were meant to be together. Five days later, Marco proposed. Poline eventually moved to Italy for good to be with the love of her life.
