But anyway, let’s get deeper into the story, shall we? Basically, Rob and Joli first developed their friendship at a gathering for travelers in the Philippines, according to BuzzFeed News. However, though Joli is from the Philippines herself, Rob is from the States. Fortunately, the two kept in touch (thank you, interwebz) for a few years before meeting back up again and beginning what is clearly the most amazing long-distance relationship of all time.
As we all know, long-distance relationships aren’t easy. Personally, I need copious amounts of cuddles and attention, like, constantly, so the idea of a LDR terrifies me. But clearly, the Switzers pushed through, deciding to meet up every so often in the most beautiful destinations you could imagine.
“It was one of the only ways for us to meet each other when we were apart,” Rob and Joli told BuzzFeed News. “And we both loved to travel as a hobby anyway so it worked well for us.”
And even amidst regular adult responsibilities (ugh), the two made sure they could work in time to meet up. “We both had full-time jobs the whole time we dated,” they said. “So we saved every bit of our money and only used our paid time off to see each other.”
OK, OK, but what about when they got to these amazing destinations? It’s 2017, people. Pics or it didn’t happen. Well, the Switzers took things one step further than a blurry selfie in front of an attraction. Instead, the two decided the “dipkiss” picture was perfect for them, and I have never been so endeared.
