Here’s my situation. As many of you already know, I’m in love with a woman in Sweden, and I’m going there to be with her. I met her in February, and I’ve been trying to get there ever since.
Originally, our plan was this: I would save up to get enough money to last me awhile, then I would fly over there and apply for residency. We figured that we would probably get married to make it easier. Then, we were gonna live happily ever after.
So I’ve paid off all my debts, and I can finally start saving now. I thought that I would probably be able to leave for Sweden in a month or two. Then a friend of hers suggests that we should check out the residency requirements to make sure we have them covered before hand.
So I went to the Swedeish Embassy website to check it out. And that’s when I read it. I can only register for residency here in the US. It takes six months to be processed. And once I apply for residency I can’t enter Sweden until it’s been processed.
There’s no getting around it. I’m going to have to wait another six months before I can see her. I’ve had a hard time making it this far, and now I have to double it. I honestly don’t know if I can make it that long. I love her so much it hurts. And now it hurts more than ever before.
On top of that, I’m getting evicted in a week. I have no idea where I’m gonna go. I’m completely broke. I don’t have a job since all of the temp work I do is being taken up by college kids who are on summer break.
I am, to put it lightly, screwed.
Best part of it is, my birthday is in three days.
Happy birthday to me? Not likely
Moderator’s Notes: After some discussion by the Admins/Mods of this board, I have changed the title of this thread to remove what could be construed as a possible threat to the Swedish Gov’t. Threats of any nature, especially one against a foreign gov’t, are inappropiate and will not be tolerated here. I realize you probably did this in jest, but the sensiblilities of anyone who may read this public forum must be considered.
