Long-distance relationships are hard and South African rugby player Faf de Klerk knows it very well. Faf is finally back with his beautiful love bug Miné van Niekerk after enduring lots of challenges due to Covid-19 restrictions.
It was hard to keep their relationship going because Faf is based in Manchester, England and Miné lives in South Africa. Miné is a pharmacist and works at her father's shop, a job that she's very content with.
Things got a little hard when the pandemic started and it led to the couple not seeing each other in over a year reports The South African. Quality time is important in a relationship and that's just what they were missing.
This was when they decided that they were better off as friends and called off their romance. Miné told Huisgenoot that it was getting increasingly difficult to deal with not being able to see each other.
