This is an old thread but, yes, I have. I met a guy a few years ago in a hostel in South Korea and after months of chatting over Skype, he ended up flying from England to Thailand, where I was living at the time, to see if it would work out a few months later. It didn’t lol.
But I live in Spain now, and my (new) love is local. It’s been a ride/learning experience for sure. We’ve made our own mini-culture that’s a mix of all the cultures we identify with (between us we have four- Filipino, American, Spanish, and Galician). It makes for an interesting home-life and even more interesting meals!
