i guess love can be true when two come from different countries. If you ask me though if a love affair between people who live in different countries can be hard, i tell you, it's a disaster. If two love each other they got to find a way to live together. Distance is one of the hardest enemies of partnership.
One of the things which establishes a partnership is 'mutual experiences'. You need to breathe the same air with your partner many hours a day.
