My coming to work abroad in America is your modern-day romance. I was working as an SLP in the South Pacific country of Samoa where I met my American Peace Corp boyfriend who was also working there. We wanted to know whether we had a strong relationship, or was it just the island paradise that we were living on making us feel that way…. so I made the move to the United States of America. With not much choice and the ‘I just need a job’ mentality, I found myself near Seattle, Washington!
