How do you meet the one in a city as busy and crowded as NYC?
The answer is simple. You don’t look for it. It finds you.
Evelyn and Martin met years ago in NYC each casually dining with friends at the German restaurant, the Heidelberg. Neither was looking for love but always kept an open mind and heart despite having previous marriages that didn’t work out. They kept busy with their own careers and when the opportunity came to enjoy themselves, they took it!
When Martin’s career took him out of the city, the two had already been talking and dating over a year. Maintaining independent lives while enjoying one another’s company became the norm for these two. The key to happiness became allowing the other person the time and space to be freely themselves for work and keep their personal life. Evelyn has a large Dominican family in the Bronx she enjoys spending time with. Meanwhile, Martin may be busy at work or playing with helicopters since he use to be a pilot. Today, Martin keeps a busy career and Evelyn keeps her career in finance and visits him on the weekends in their new home in Canada. She now lives in Bufallo, New York.
On the outside, one would think, how could a relationship with distance really work but today’s modern day love stories include people like Evelyn and Martin who are strong independent forces in their own lives and know how to honor that in their relationship.
“He just lets me be free and I can be myself,” Evelyn says.
Martin says, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”
It might be silly to think a marriage could work with so much distance but today’s relationships are proving more and more that with busy schedules, one can find true love while remaining a self-sufficient professional.
