My relationship with her started by chance on Facebook, when my eyes fell on a picture of her through the story feature.
I liked the picture a lot and her beauty took me so I told her about it, and her personality immediately attracted me as soon as I opened the conversation with her.
Of course, she lived far away, and I was in Morocco, but many people have long-distance relationships, and they are able to overcome the distance.
However, we also had another obstacle; I was much too young for her. At least, she thought so. It was not a problem for me.
Despite the problems between us resulting from the lack of confidence that she felt because of our large age gap, we enjoyed our conversations. It was really nice getting to know each other, and I looked forward to our times on the phone.
But, she often brought up the fact that I am much younger than her, and when I tried to talk to her about our future, she would always reply; just wait until I come to you and we talk face to face.
I’ve always been aware of how she feels, and of course, I could sense that struggled with great hesitation, but I constantly tried to be understanding about it.
When she told me that she would come to me finally, I was very surprised because now we actually did have some problems because of the age difference between us.
Honestly, I didn’t quite know how to handle it or know what to do because it didn’t really seem to matter to her whether or not we were able to be together. Although I tried to not worry about our future, I want to know if we could actually be together.
During our growing relationship, we would exchange pictures and send videos and talk live,. We actually have many common interests, despite our age difference.
I was excited she was coming to visit again, so I went to the airport at the time of arrival.
When we met, we had some difficulty because when she entered Morocco she did not provide her contact information. She had a Spanish passport, so before she came, she had described what she was wearing and what her luggage looked like. She sent me a picture so that I could know who she was, but she was being detained by customs officers.
My relationship with her started by chance on Facebook, when my eyes fell on a picture of her through the story feature, I liked the picture a lot and her beauty captured my heart.
I sent her a private message and explained that I found her beautiful. Soon after we were chatting regularly, and her personality soon attracted me even more.
I could not wait to show her the beauty of my country. Morocco has so many romantic places for couples to explore together, and I knew she would fall in love; with Morocco, and with me.
How could she sleep under the stars in the Sahara, walk through the ancient maze of secret alleyways and cobblestone streets of the souk, or taste the delicious tagine of my home and not fall in love?!
For me, this was a Facebook fairytale, a storybook romance that actually came true.
