"documenting our world one voice at a time"

A love story from Serbia


By correspondent Aleksandar Krcmar in Belgrade, Serbia.

Love often strikes you when you least expect it. I live in Belgrade,Serbia and for most people in my country it is hard to settle and have a good life.

A few years back I was a college student and I was also working at a local bar to help my parents pay for my college. The only problem I had back then was not having enough time to go out between working and studying. Then my close friend told me he met a girl on the internet and it was going pretty well for them. He also encouraged me to try it out since he knew I was single for a long time.

At first I was skeptical about it, but then I decided to take his advice and make a profile on the site he told me about. I wasn’t disappointed. Pretty soon I met a girl and then another and I had a lot of fun. Then iI started chatting with a girl named Jovana and I stopped chatting with all other girls since we had so much in common.

She was so beautiful. The only problem was that she lived in Austria, but we talked on the phone and she told me she was coming to Belgrade every now and then since she lived here before. Having to meet her made me very happy. We were talking on the phone everyday and one day she told me she was coming to Belgrade in a few days.

I was so anxious to meet her and seeing her for the first time made me the happiest man alive. She was the girl from my dreams. We hugged and then kissed like we knew each other for years. I took her to a cafe near the river to watch the sunset together and it was magical. We were so in love that we couldn’t take our eyes off each other. I often feel the same way as I felt then when I don’t get to see her for a long time due to our work.

You never know when or how, but love will somehow always find you.
