Micah & Janjira

Est. 2019
Interviewed Sep 12, 2023
Long distance has been the perfect start to countless beautiful relationships and Micah and Janjira are no exception.

What was your first impression of each other?

Janjira: I remember thinking about how beautiful his eyes were, and how he was literally what I had expected after speaking to him online all summer — kind and loving with a warm energy that’s infectious.

Micah: I remember how soft and gentle she was/is with a majority of things in her life –– everything felt just right and it was just like when would only text / call each other in long distance.

What is your favorite thing about each other?

J: His hardheadedness and willingness to find the right answers to any situation. If it wasn’t for this trait, we really wouldn’t be where we are now.

M: Her caring, she’s always caring for all of our friends around us & my opinion on things as well!

How long have you two been together for?

Four years in October 2023 ❤️

What is your number one tip for resolving conflict?

J: Nip it in the bud ASAP. I’ve been getting into the habit of vocalizing how I feel, even if I can’t name the feeling right away. It’s better to figure it out together instead of creating more tension by trying to be logical.

M: I believe exactly what Jira is saying, and my biggest tip is to always to remind yourself to let go of your ego. You don’t always have to be right.

What’s most important to you in a relationship?

J: Learning about and loving your partner through every change they go through. While we’re fundamentally still together for the same reasons four years ago, we’ve gone through so many changes together and individually that there’s always something new to learn.

M: For me, the most important thing for a relationship to have is the understanding that everything will not always be the same. Both of you are changing constantly throughout the years and you can’t expect the relationship to remain the same.

What are your thoughts on couples therapy? If you’ve attended therapy, what have you learned?

J: Couples therapy is such a great way for couples to learn more about one another. Micah and I have talked about therapy a few times during our relationship and want to go, but life’s been pretty tumultuous until recently.

M: I think it’s pretty cool! I’d love to go haha.

What’s your rose/bud/thorn?


  • Rose: Flourishing in communication, we talk about everything practically all of the time and It never feels like burden.
  • Bud: We’ve been learning to live together and it’s been constant growth ever since moving in together during the lockdowns!
  • Thorn: We’re working on how we balance our relationship with all of life’s moments for example we just moved like twice in the past year and it has taken a toll on the both of us!
