Post Reply What do you think of Long Distance Relationships?
Posted 5/16/13
Personally, I think it's possible if you trust and really love that person, but you need to contact her/him frequently like in internet (texting, webcam, message...) and see each other at least one a month? depending on how you, but it's true that's going to be really hard. Not everyone can handle it.

You can try to make it work but there's no guarantee that it will. I would rather not engage in LDRs. But if I really like the guy, I will do my best to make it work

Long-distance relationships are difficult. First of all, an online and long-distance relationship is NOT the same.

Although, you have to ask yourself where you two are planning to go with this relationship. I mean, if you're not planning for the long run where eventually you two live together, then... It's sort of pointless.

It can work, but lets be realistic: There aren't many that can pull it off.
There are many reasons why people may engage in long-distance relationships, and I don't want to cover all that I can think up. Too much work.
The negatives and positives are also too vast to list.
I don't expect to, and the likelihood is low; however, it's possible.

It can work though I'm sure it takes alot of work and commitment but I don't see anything wrong with it. I don't know if I'd do it personally though.pros and cons...hmm,guess you wouldn't really see them in person as much but hmm...

Hard to make it work. Both people need true dedication and I'd say, love.

i Feel like it's the easiest relationship to get started..but they most delicate time consuming and trustworthy type of relationship to maintain because they entire relationship is based off of trust and trust is easier to tear then a piece of paper because you build trust when you go through the friend stage when you get a feel for someone and it is long distance So your mind starts to play tricks with you to telling you that the other person since you can't keep a eye on them be around them you really can't get a feel for them and you start imagining them having a agenda and start having second thoughts on everything and before you know it the tone of how you were communicating start's to change and you falter.. but if you can work through that and put in the time and effort i feel like it's a instant happily ever after, death do us apart type relationship..hope this helps

Long-distance relationships are hard to get out of once you're in them, because love is love. But overall, they suck. Stay away from them is the best advice I could give to anybody wondering about one.

If two people really love each other then I think it can work out. Like my friend's parents, they met over the game WoW, dated two years and eventually wound up marrying each other in real life. I personally haven't had much luck with long-distance relationships but I think with a lot of work, trust, and dedication certain people can really make it work. =)

Will it Work? Will it Not Work?

I say that it's not impossible. A long-distance relationship is not impossible. It's just that a lot of people give up halfway though I think., or they get sick of waiting. I guess not being able to hold your partner makes you feel as if you need to move on, or maybe you find someone you connect with more while the other partner is away.

Though that being said, a lot of people can't... wont work to pull it off. It's not that they forget, it's that they give into temptation. I mean, most people may feel like it's a good idea at first. "Hey I can stay a few months and be fineeee" but after the realization really hits, doubt shows up, and once someone comes along, it's like "Well if I can't get it from my partner I'll get it from this random person". I don't think when it comes to long-distance a lot of people want the quickest fix.

What makes people want to commit in long distance relationships?

A number of reasons, not wanting to be fully alone? Actually caring about the person. Promises of marriage.

What are the Positives and Negatives about it?


I think a positive thing is, you can test the strength of your bond all the while having a little bit more breathing room. Especially when you're with your partner every moment. I feel that being together all the time can get a little unbearable. When your together at first it seems okay but once problems start happening, arguments occur and blahblahbla... little problems become big problems and you feel like you have absolutely no space. When you're away from your partner or vice-versa, you both can test to see if you really want space or you really truly want to be together

The negative thing is you never know who your partner is with or what they are doing. Whether they have moved on already or not, leaving you to have a harsh awakening whenever you get back. This happens wayyyy to often, but I think you kind of have to roll with it.


Sorry, I don't really do relationships, so this is just from a observational standpoint only. Sorry.

long distance relationship isn't for everybody. and it ain't definitely for me. I've been in 2 of these, and it just do not work with me(first girl i dated for 1 year before it transitioned to the long distance relationship; 2nd girl i dated for 6months before It transitioned to long distance). falling out of love is easy in this type of relationship and that's even with webcam and calling regularly(but not everyday). I estimate the time that it would last where you're still in-love with the person far away is around 4-months. I fell out of love in both my long distance relationship attempts nearing 5-months of being away.

The only thing good i can think of with this is that when you finally could visit the country/place where the person is, you have someone to connect with.

I'd listen to the others that mentioned to stay away from this type of relationship. Unless you're trying to make your own harem and have girlfriends/boyfriends in every country/state.
