"I said, “Meet Me In Tokyo?” And He Did."
02 Feb 2018STORIESBY SweetEscape

“It wasn’t exactly “love at first sight” with him. It was more of having an unexplainable feeling like “Hey, there’s something about you.”

We were formally introduced in mid 2017 at a friend’s birthday. Since then, we kept quick and casual conversations when we happened to see each other, and whenever we’re out out town, we would comment on each other’s Instagram Stories on our individual travels, or talk about destinations we want to visit. We were both always somewhere else and rarely in the same place.  

I knew of him since high school because we came from the same hometown and had the same circle of friends, but we never really hung out. In fact, we were not even aware of each other’s presence! It was only last year when we were both single that our friends began to frequently tease us and try to get us to meet up because they’ve thought we’d make a good match because we share the same interests and our personalities are similar. To be honest, I never really gave it much thought, until he surprised me with a gift from his latest trip to Greece: a pair of earrings that he said I could use for my next trip. At that time we weren’t even anything yet, but he was already starting to make thoughtful efforts. Time finally permitted us to consistently see and talk to each other late last year. I already knew how much I really liked this guy because I found him as driven, passionate, and adventurous as I am. And it was very rare to find someone you can connect, so indescribably, with.

Later that year, in December, I had a trip planned with a couple of my friends to Hokkaido, Japan. Without second thought or hesitation, I randomly asked him, “Meet me in Tokyo?” And he really did!

It was a great kickoff to our relationship and Sweet Escape was able to magically capture that. Now, we already have trips and plans lined up ahead and we’re both ecstatic.

I’ve always wanted to find someone who I can run the world with. I never thought it was possible. But I did." - Andie Javelosa

10 Signs You And Him Are Meant To Be
20 Feb 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

We absolutely loved this insight from Bridestory and thought that you would love it too.

It can sometimes be difficult to differentiate true love with momentary passion and lust. We often get confused between the two and mistake one for the other. So, to help you be able to know whether the person you are with is the right one for you or not – we have narrowed it down into 10 very important signs that shows when you both are meant to be together.

1. There is chemistry

We can fake a lot of things, but chemistry is not one of them. In any romantic relationship – this ingredient is a must and one that is either there or isn't. You're definitely in the right track when you feel such a strong chemistry.

2. There is friendship

When all the passion, lust and honeymoon period is over, friendship is what will keep the relationship going. Imagine yourself not being in a romantic relationship with your partner, would you still want them in your life? If the answer is yes, then you have found yourself a built-in best friend.

3. You share the same morals and values

Not everyone will share the same morals and values as you do, but when you've found a partner who does, it will be far less difficult to overcome other differences you may have.

4. You give the best of yourselves

Being our best selves at the beginning of the relationship can be super easy, but if after years have passed and you both are still willing to be the best for each other, then you have found someone truly worthy of your love.

5. You both become better people because of each other

When you see yourself becoming a better person with the love that your partner gives you, which is a big sign that he is the right one for you. It is one of the biggest gifts that true love can bring us.

6. His happiness is your happiness

When you truly love someone, all that you want is to see your partner being happy. When this becomes a two-way street, you both have found a real and genuine love that does not come around very often.

7. You enjoy each other's company regardless

When simply being in the presence of your partner brings you joy and happiness, which says a lot about how much you really love being together. And you are going to need this if forever is what you both are striving for.

8. You are completely yourself with that person and vice versa

There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to be yourself, flaws and all – no filter needed, in the presence of the one you love. When you feel absolutely free to express your thoughts and feelings to your partner just as they are and they love you even more for it, then you have found yourself a keeper!

9. Even though it's work, its work you're happy to do

Let's face it, relationships are not easy and require a lot of effort. But, when you both are willing to put in the work in the good and especially in the bad, that is something that definitely screams love.

10. Even though they are not perfect, they are still perfect for you

When both of your flaws become perfect imperfections to one another, which are love in its truest form.
