Sometimes we are wondering about what really matters in life. And I suppose everyone would answer this differently. Some chase success, some money or materials. And I would count myself to the few ones which actually go for love.
Being a romantic person nowadays is hard. People keep telling you, that you should rather focus on yourself, having a well paid job, travel the whole world. Reaching all the "better" goals. Love seems to be out of style. And after a few failures everyone gets to this point where you think they might be right. You are thinking I will never meet someone who sees the world like you do. That you will never experience the whole Hollywood bullshit.
Until this very very unlikely thing is happening - to me. The most crazy and magnificent story I have ever experienced.
The story of how I get to know you (my boyfriend and hopefully my future husband ) is totally weird. I have seen your picture on Facebook and somehow it just flashed me - I can´t even describe why exactly.
It just popped up, because we have a mutual friend (thanks David!).
I just had to write you. And this is where the magic began. Since we started chatting and later on calling every day for hours, I have known that you were special. The things we were talking about, the depth and the truth in those words. It felt like there is finally someone who understands my weird and awfully romantic perspective. Someone who is not afraid of the really big feelings, the commitment, the effort. A soulmate. The whole Hollywood bullshit.
I needed to see you. So, after just a few weeks of getting to know each other, I took the risk to meet you, 10.000 km away from Germany. For our first date. Which didn´t felt like it, but more like we have known each other our whole life. Since those time I know what matters, I know for what I am going to fight, I suddenly know how my future life will look like. It´s you. And luckily you see it the same way!
So we are fighting since a few weeks now. Getting you to Germany to actually be together. We mastered lovely German bureaucracy together, had ups and downs, we laughed, we cried. But the goal is still the same: A life together.
And this is there reason why I am doing this. Telling our story to strangers and hoping so much, that there are some hopeless romantics out there as well helping us. Even though I must admit its quite a big step for me to do this,asking for help, for money. But for you I would do everything necessary. I hope they will understand, that this is all I wish for when I fall asleep at night. That this help would actually make me the happiest woman on earth. I hope they believe, that we actually making so much effort already and that fundraising isn´t our first step.
We are both students. Having lectures and try to manage to collect the money. You are working extra hours every week, but how to safe money from a salary of 1€ per hour? I am also working as much as I can during my final semester, preparing stuff for the Uni after work, trying to write my Bachelor Thesis at least almost in time. Then I spend the money for fees and passport renewal, flights, the movement back to your home country to apply for a student visa. I am a bit worried about the future sometimes. There are so many expenses coming up. Our movement to a city where you can study, can you get a job soon or a scholarship? Our parents can´t support us, since they don´t have much themselves.
I know the people out there know, that every little amount helps, that there is nothing we would appreciate more. That they believe in us, like I do. I love you, Husby.
