Need help with travel plans to see my gf for the holidays
I came across this dating site called A Foreign Affair. I’ve been single for more than 5 years and have really been off my game when it comes to dating. Through the site, I’ve met this woman from the Philippines and we’ve been constantly communicating every single day for the past 6 months. We’ve established a relationship and I can confidently say that we are in love.
Now, the holidays are fast approaching and I was thinking about surprising her with a visit. I’d love to spend the festivities with her as our first physical date, which I think is perfect in my opinion. I could book traveling arrangements right now and wrap my gifts but first I need to make sure if this decision is the right one.
Since I’m planning for it to be a surprise, there are sure to be multiple things to consider before deciding anything. One that comes to mind is if she’ll have other plans that might interfere with my plans on visiting her. And if the surprise does go well, should there be anything I need to think over like meeting her parents and relatives?
Should I bring gifts for everyone or would it be inappropriate to do so? I’m no good at this and I just want my year to end with my beautiful lady by my side. I’ve consulted with a few of my friends already and they all seem to think it’s a good idea but not one of them has tried going through a long distance relationship, much less than an online one.
I just need to make sure that all the possible factors are to be considered before anything or else I might not just screw up my relationship but the holidays, as well. Any comments, suggestions, and tips will greatly be appreciated. I just really want the holidays to be special!
