S02/EP12 - Colleen & Ankit, Personal Growth In An LDR

Meet Colleen (US, living in France) & Ankit (India, living in Canada)

Colleen and Ankit met at work in Boston. For Colleen it was obvious from the beginning that she would like to get to know him better. Ankit, however, did not realize various attempts by Colleen as such [07:09], so she had to take the initiative and asked Ankit for a date.

This date, according to him, did not go as planned. But Ankit eventually only enchanted Colleen more, so the two began dating shortly before Colleen had to move to Chicago just a few weeks after their first date. And that was the start of the long distance relationship [09:11].

Currently, the two are being separated by 5,600 KM, as Colleen moved to Paris in August 2019. Ankit currently lives in Montreal, Canada. 

They tell us how and why important it is to pursue one's personal goals [22:44] to then be able to focus on the common goal.

The next year holds some exciting milestones for both of them [41:17]. In September 2021 the American-Indian wedding is coming up.

In addition, Colleen talks about what was the deciding moment for her that Ankit is the right one for her [34:36]. We also learn how this wonderful couple deals with the distance. 

To share their experiences as well as give hope to other LDR couples, Ankit and Colleen host a podcast - the LDR Podcast. Here they talk to specialists about topics that the LDR community is moved by, and they also share some personal stories.
