"abscence makes the heart grow fonder" [disny robind hood]
relationships just close ones can be hard, long harder;
if you both honeslt wnat eachother you can make it work out for the best=
seperater but close friends, killer enimies, or devoted lovers.

good luck, I hope you won't need it.

i think its not a good thing to have long distance relationship because to far to be without your love and your bf/gf could be with someone else while you are at home or something like that. you could the same. bf and gf need each other physical and mentally so i wouldnt like long distance relationship

Bam, bumping an old thread!

I'm into a long distance relationship at the moment.
I think they can work but need to be really strong.
We have ups and downs, we get mad and we cry.
But if you can get through it, it makes your couple stronger.
At least, that's what i believe.

I'm still waiting for my man to move in with me : )

With a lack of sex and sight, most people with break it. The point of being with somebody is to be with them. If you can't be with them, what's the point? I would prefer to be broken up with than to not have to see someone for an extended period of time. When they come back, then we can talk about getting back together or whatever.

Tried it, didn't work... found out recently (which is about 10 years after it was over for us) that she was banging out some other dude who lived close to her.

When i was a lot younger it was okay, but now that I'm older I kind of require that physical connection, and I'm not just talking about sex. It's hard for me to form a strong emotional bond with someone unless I get to see them face to face and spend time with them on a regular basis. As far as sex goes I'm not a "wait until marriage" person and have found that after getting to date someone for a period of time that moving on in the relationship and having sex has strengthened my relationships. None of the things I mentioned can really be achieved long distance.

How long it goes on probably depends on the couple, but I think in the end that distance has to be taken away eventually.

A long time ago, I realized my boyfriend was moving to a different city. I ended up crying everyday and couldn't get over my depression.
Months passed, and I got over my depression issues. My bf stopped talking to me. Afterschool one day I checked his FaceBook and I found that he was cheating on me.
I dumped the jerk. :[ I pretended I didn't know he was cheating on me.

^ My experience of it. ;[ I personally don't like it..

As pessimistic and cynic as I may sound, I have to say that I don't believe in long distance relationships. Why? Because of the saying "Out of sight, out of mind". The faithfulness and patience are in question...BUT for those who could maintain that, I salute them!


Nice save lol I'm in one right now and...yeah takes a heck lot of work but its worth it seeing that girl smile afte weeks upon weeks and sometimes months being away.

Depends on the distance. I'm in one right now and 300+ miles (appx 4 hour drive) is ok for us to handle. It takes a HECK of a lot of work, and yes physically speaking its a strain as well as just not getting to be there for her when she's nervous about school or an interview or work. Thing is if you and your gf/bf are serious enough to get into a long distance in the first place you would have to already be a solid couple. This means no cheating and BOTH of you have laid your secrets bare.

I wouldn't encourage a long distance relationship to anyone that is not serious.

But for those already in one (excluding over seas, that's just ridiculous, bravo for the people out there in one of those) if your relationship was not strong to be on it, make sure it is. It'll make your long distance one much more effective without the trust issues.

....I am scratching my head on how to say this. There has to be something a basis for the relationship. Not just physical or some bs like that...you have to truly like/love this person. You also have to know each other to where you know that this person is worth waiting for and that you will not find or be interested in someone else. That is a key thing. I mean it does have to do with the people yes, but not just the people the relationship, history, and knowledge of each other. But I guess that is something I think every relationship needs. I did not right a lot because I could go on and on, but I hit one to two main points. Without those I do not think it is even worth the time. Sooo...I hope that made sense...if not o well. Good Luck to all those who are in a long distant relationship I wish you all the best of luck and happiness. Peace

thought i'd throw in my 2 cents..

I'm from the UK, my girlfriend from the US, we've been together 9 years so weve been doing a very very very long distance thing for quite a while..

It hasn't been easy at all .. ever .. but she's worth it, were getting married next year :D

bottom line, not for everyone and no one does it if they can help it but love is love :)

good luck and hapiness to all who who go through hell for love lol

Long-distance worked out for my older sister when she and her boyfriend went to graduate school in different states. She went to Miami, Florida, and he went to Boston, Massachusetts. They couldn't see each other more than maybe 2 or 3 times a year for several years, but they loved each other enough to wait and now they're married and have a beautiful little girl.

On the other hand, one of my best friends went straight to the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland while his girlfriend went to the University of San Francisco after high school. They eventually ran out of things to talk about over the phone, and a sort of resentment grew between them and rifted them apart. They couldn't keep things interesting, and the distance exacerbated the problem. They had a rough break-up.

Long-distance relationships neither work all the time, nor do they fail all the time, they're just difficult to deal with. What is hard for one couple to cope with might be easy for another couple. I think in this day and age with how cheap flying can be, as well as facebook, webcams, skype, etc. it's easier to handle a long-distance relationship than in the past where your options were mostly limited to phones and letters.

its not gonna work, they're already cheating on you
-pessimistic approach

on a serious note, if whoever you are in a relationship with is who you think is "the one" and you both take the relationship seriously, you shouldn't give up because of distance if you truly love each other and you will find a way to make it work until you are able to be together
