What do you think of Long Distance Relationships?

I hope it works out for me if I ever grow a long distance relationship while I'm in the Army.

I've been in quite a few long distance relationships as a teenager, and none of them really worked out except for a few..

However, I guess it might be different as adults.

Not sure yet. What I do know is that there are some long-distance relationships that have worked out between my friends and they are honestly more beautiful than any short-distance (whatever you call them) in the end.

For example, my two friends - one living in the Netherlands and one in the U.S. met each other on the internet, fell in love, and the guy in Dutchland flew to her in California.. she flew back later on. Now they're planning on getting married. So damn nice. #jelly

Long distance does NOT work.

You guys need to meet up or its a waste of time & empty promises.

But then again whatever floats your boat...

it's hard but it could work, just matters who the people are and if they can adjust to not seeing eachother .

I don't think long distance would be much of an issue for a real couple anyways. The fake ones don't care anyways and only pretend to but that is a different issue. Long distance would be reasonable enough over a semi short period of time. However I can guess that most couples would have considerable difficulty lasting long distance over an extended period of time. If they care enough though they would survive even that, but it would be hard, being away for say years. Most couples would grow distant and find other closer relationships instead. It's not guaranteed, but often happens or I think that at least.

I think it depends on the people. They can work if both the individuals really want the relationship to work. These people have to try 10x harder. The lack of physical closeness can bring up all kinds of problems, such as trust issues and loneliness. The only ones I'm wary about are the relationships where they live countries away from each other. Obviously some can work out, but man it has to be really really hard.

I tend to go for relationships where my significant other and I are somewhat distanced from each other, but are still in the same state. That way we have independence to do what we need to, but still close enough to see each other. I've been in a relationship for 3 years where I only see my girlfriend once a week (or once every two weeks) and we've been doing great.

nope doesn't work out, people need face time not phone time. No point unless you can see them on a regular basis and why bother trying unless your engaged and it was work related but if not dont bother

I think I like it. Being able to continue one means you trust the other party and at the same time, you are loyal to him/her.

if its a more physical relationship i don't think it can work, but perhaps if its a more emotional relationship or if your the kind of people that like to hear each others thoughts then it could definitely work.

if a couple is getting separated over distance i think its best to just become friends and then whenever they see each other they can always just step it back up again.

just my opinion.

LDRs take a lot of work. Personally, I've only ever seen 2 LDRs work out. The vast majority I've seen and experienced did not. And I think the stats are much slimmer if it's both a LDR and began as an online relationship.

here's a small statistic sheet i found detailing LDRs:

Super difficult but will work if both people are willing to put a lot of work in

I think they are doomed to fail.
Still, you might as well take what you can get.

If people can make it work, then why shouldn't they?
