Hello! My name is Maline and I’m 18 years old. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship, and I have to take trips by train for 2-3 hours to get to him.
The amount money I receive from birthdays, Christmas, and my hourly job doesn’t let me see him as often as I’d like as well as save money for emergencies at the same time. He is so busy with his studies and maintaining his mental health, as well as friendships, etc., that he isn’t able to work at the moment without sacrificing one of those things. Still, he pays for about every other trip, the times when he comes to me.
It is very important for us to meet at least a couple of times a month, not only for the sake of our relationship, but especially, for me, to make sure that he is okay and won’t do anything stupid. We have the most lovely relationship, and we are the most important people in each other’s lives. Luckily for us, that is not an exaggeration. I’ve found the person who wants to spend his life with me as much as I want to spend my life with him. That is the reason why I think this is worth asking for a little help. Any amount that you are willing to donate will help, really.
The average train ticket from my city to his is about 31 US dollars, but the same tickets can can range from $18 to $48 depending on when you buy them. And that’s only for a single trip. I still live with my parents, so I don’t have to pay rent or any other bills like that, except for my own phone bill. Still, I have to pay for necessities, like underwear and warm clothes for the colder seasons, as well as Christmas presents and birthday gifts for the members of my immediate family. My average monthly income is around $150, so there isn’t much left for me to put away for saving.
My goal in life is to become a civil engineer and design products that will make human day-to-day life less harmful to our environment. Then I’ll be able to pay for my own train tickets. But until then (circa 7 years in the future!) I’ll be a broke student.
I’d love to be able to not worry about money every time one of us is going to take a trip to the other. Which is why I turn to you. I’m incredibly grateful for and honored by any amount of help that you can give to make both my and my boyfriend’s lives a lot easier and my future more secured.
