Today, I drove three and a half hours to surprise my long distance boyfriend for our anniversary. He was out of town. Where was he? Three and a half hours away trying to surprise me. FML

Show it anyway

no you're not first. and OP: this isnt an fml, this is more like a MLIG. you guys were made for each other.

You my good sir fail at commenting on other's comments.

#35 is right, this would be a FML if he was next door or something. He remembered your anniversary consider yourself lucky

At least he wasn't going to see another girl...

You suck at maths, he was 1.75 hours away, not 3.5.

no it would be 3.5, if she lives 3.5 hours away and was at her house when she was at his you suck at common sense anyway, not fml, i'd love your life, shows he cares about you just as much as you care about him

I laughed when i read this! Nice one. But it is not that bad. Looks at the brighter side OP... You guy loves you.

#145, Actually, YOU suck at common sense. If they met in the middle, then they are 1.75 hours away from eachother.

Where does it say they met in the middle? The 'out of town' bit makes it seem like she was meant to be surprising him at his house..

no, if they met in the middle then actually they are 0.0 hours away from each other

Youre all idiots, what #142 meant was they could both drive 1.75 hours and meet in the middle from where they are now. But she is currently 3.5 hours away from where he is

aww well it's sweet how you both care to remembr.

Lol I don't think this is much of an FML. I think it's kinda cute. At least he cares and tried to surprise you. FYL and FHL though.

ha thats just cute :)

Thats what I thought :) You'll laugh about this one day. Me? I'd laugh about it right then and there

I agree. This just means both of you cared about the other enough to drive three and a half hours to surprise each other. Something a lot of people wish they had. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth =) I was thinking it was an FML up until I started reading the last sentence. Come back and post another one if he ever drives three hours to see another girl instead of you on your anniversary.

Yeah... I don't think that's really an FML. That's actually sweet.

Actually, there might be an FML here... between the two of you, you'll be wasting 10.5 hours' worth of gas... I might be pissed about that one.

7hrs. 14 after they each drive back to their own town. I guess THAT is an FML, but I don't think she was whining about the gas, lol. But I live in California, and I hear gas prices here are at least a wee bit higher in average than in other states =P

yeah, i thought it was cute too :) i mean, it kinda sucks, but its kinda awesome. at least he remembered and wanted to do something special :D i sense love? haha

i concurr! so adorable!!

Gift of the magi.

ha, that's what came to my mind too

ok that's not bad that's cute!

Omg I love that story!

Well at least you both had your hearts in the right place!

It's really sweet!

Too bad they were in different places, though. To be exact, 3 and a half hours apart.

that'd be an FML if he'd been in bed with anotehr girl. this is just sweet. i hope you both started driving back and met in the middle

Exactly what I was thinking, yes fyl for having someone who tries to surprise you too instead of being a jerk and forgetting your anniversary or sleeping with someone else... And oh damn 3.5 friggen hours, it's not like you drove for three days.

i hope u met him on the way back.

that's the cutest thing ever...this is not an FML...at all...

Ya, more like an MLIA. Still cute, though.

It shows he cares about you - HE REMEMBERED YOUR ANNIVERSARY!!! Seems like a good guy. Honestly, it seems like a happy thing moreso than an FML. Good luck to you guys :)

Are you dating a mirror?

Slightly off topic, but I do this with my boyfriend, friends and family alot.... we'll either try to do the same thing and end up where the other person just left, or we'll get the same present for each other.... usually I try to coordinate on larger things (like a 200+ mile trip or a large purchase), but I really enjoy it when it happens with smaller things.
