Long Distance

Phong and Briana

Shrewsbury, MA

I was a visiting medical student in the Portland, OR area and only had 2 weeks left before heading back to Boston.  I decided to change my zip code to see what kind of matches I would get.  What a life-changing maneuver!  I immediately matched with Bri and thought that she was adorable. What I found most attractive was her personality and humor.  We went on a couple of dates before I moved back to the East coast. 

We both didn't want to get into a long distance relationship, but we also didn't want to let each other go.  Despite the distance and time zone differences, we decided to become a couple.  We would fly across the country to see each other every 3 months or so.  One of these visits involved her coming to my graduation.  I decided to surprise her with an engagement ring on commencement weekend on June 2, 2007.  After enduring a bi-coastal relationship, we feel confident in tackling the time constraints of my surgical residency.  We are now planning our wedding for March 22, 2009!
