I found this passage from Thomas Hardy’s “Far From The Madding Crowd” when I was researching material for a couple who met while both were vacationing in Mexico. Though from different parts of the country, they began a long distance relationship that eventually led to marriage. I found the words in this excerpt to be so relevant as they applied in that situation. It may work well for you too!
“We are all on our own paths, all on our own journeys.
Sometimes the paths cross, and people arrive at the crossing points at the same time and meet each other. There are greetings, pleasantries are exchanged, and then they move on. But then once in a while the pleasantries become more, friendship grows, deeper links are made, hands are joined and love flies. The friendship has turned to love.”
