Diaspora family: Vivian badly missing her boyfriend who has been away in the US


Being in a relationship with someone can be tricky especially when there’s a whole heap of kilometers between you, and for singer Vivian, nothing makes more sense.

Nobody says it is going to be easy — the extra distance makes many things unachievable. Things could get complicated, and you could get sad and lonely at times.

For Vivian, her soon-to-be husband Sam West moved to the US almost an year ago. The 13,713 km between the two have been tormenting the sassy singer in all kind of ways giving a clear look at how hard it can be to balance such relationships.

“Things often get tougher, and other responsibilities pile up on you. It’s not easy, regardless how strong you may be. There are things he used to do for me that I have to personally do them now. I miss Sam West, and I wish he knows that,” said Vivian, who got engaged to Sam West, said.

The two have been together for almost five years now and predominately work together — Sam is a music promoter. In short, they had fallen into a pattern that most lovebirds find themselves in that is now incomplete.

It might be only an year, but the first few years, or months, are usually the toughest.

“When you fall in love with someone, and the two of you get used to each other, that is one of the best feelings in the world. However, I know people have to work – and sometimes that entails traveling away from each other. When someone who is so dear to you stays away for long, then a void forms in your heart,” Vivian said.
