Is it just me, or is there a lot of multiple post happening a lot in CR?

Well, if both parties are committed, then yes, definitely! If you truly love each other, you'll wait no matter what (INSERT HART HERE).

I think it's deinately possible for long distance relationships to work but both partners have to be dedicated, trusting and trustworthy.
Posted 6/28/11
It depends on some people.
You have put in a lot of trust, effort and time in it.
I did LDR before. I always wait for him to go online.
I barely go out, since most of my friends are guys so my ex didn't like it.
It was hard tho* Hes not always there for me. Hes always with his friends and he gets jealous easily.
It did not work out.

I'm one, we're over 300 miles apart and my full bus journey is about 12 hours (this includes a two hour wait in a london bus station), and so far it's going great! Every time we see each other (usually around once a month or two) it's a big event

Yeah if you meet eachother and talk regularly on Skype and stuff. Never been in one, I don't like internet relationships. Prefer to be able to get physical many times a week. Whatever floats your boat though.

My boyfriend and I have been dating long distance for 3½ years. We're getting engaged in August and moving in together next year. We're 6,000 miles apart, and for a long time we couldn't Skype more than once a week. It was hard, but it's definitely possible if you want it to happen!

Well... they can work, I've a pair of friends who'd been in one for several years, and ended up married. But most of them don't. It takes incredible maturity and dedication on the part of both parties for it to work. If either side wavers, it will break. I've tried a couple of them, and they've all ended by the other party for the lack of being able to keep it up. Other emotional desires can also build up, making it harder to stay firm. In the ages of video conferencing over the internet, it's a little easier now, but nothing will replicate the touch or smell desire.

If you want to try it, go for it! Just know what you're getting into...

It was the same for me and my boyfriend. We started talking about marriage within the first year, but we couldn't make it work until now.

I think if both parties are determined enough, it can work. (:

They work if you take them seriously. I wonder how many teens are guilty of turning off the computer, thinking they don't have to deal with the relationship anymore. Or how many teens cheat, saying it's just online. And I say teens because that's the vast majority of the people I see pulling crap like that, although there are a few adults I could mention too

I personally met my fiance, long distance, over four years ago online. Now I live with him and we're preparing to buy our house and have our wedding.

I'm in one and we have been together for an amazing 1 Year and proceeding into our 2nd year, already talked about getting engaged/married At the moment that wont be possible for 3 or 4 years but still. We believe working together and that as long if it isnt ever being one sided it will work Already been through some tough times together and I know she is worth it and she has said the same to me so many times

It isn't if it will work or not its who you have it with for it to work easily. It is about giving and trust and communication in order for a Long Distant Relationship to work, also you have to be creative It helps when your partner also likes gaming like mine lol XD

We game together a lot and voice chat/text. it helps whenever you are both doing something you like together, internet date you could say instead of a physical movies or dinner or day to do whatever they want to do etc...Physical presence to the person doesn't depend if the relationship will work, it may shortly but for long term commitments it takes what you can aquire through long distance for it to work smoothly for a life time. That is what I believe.. otherwise its just about the s. word and I'm completely not like that (yes I'm a nice/good guy)

Me and my girlfriend are long distance, and have been together for a year now. My sister was in a long distance relationship for 7 days.

So it really depends on the people, they can work if you truly care about each other.

why not.

It's not something that works very often, but it does work for some, not most others. Though, I'd imagine with the rise in e-dating it's becoming more and more popular. One thing I do like about it is that it really give room for creativity. I crack up a little when people call an hour long drive a long distance relationship though... Personally I think I can manage a long distance relationship, but it's not my first choice.

They're unfulfilled and a little depressing.

Yes it's possible. Anything is but it just depends on the person.

Long distance relationships are considered baseless unless I have met and slept with them.

It is possible for them the work, but they're really hard to keep up with.

I was in one once when I moved away and left my bf behind. I thought I did everything right, I would try my best to keep contact but in the end it just didn't work because he didn't keep up his end of the communication.

So you could do everything right, but it still takes two to make a relationship work.

That being said, I think it is possible for LDR to work, as long as both people are willing to make the effort to keep communication going. Also, it helps if there's a a definite amount of time in which the long distance part will end and the couple will be back together.

Younger? Impossible. Older? Able. I've had one of my closest friends be in a relationship with a guy who's in another country and they love each other so much. I mean it was fate for them to even meet and fall in love and I could even imagine them married together but it's too hard when you're young. I don't wanna see anyone that sad ever again especially if it's someone close. I don't ever wanna see my little sis sad again over a guy in another country.

i made it like 4 months then she visited... left for another 4 and came back from college. it was super hard but I made it through it. I went to school with her. so i knew her well, never did the whole internet long dis thing though. that would seem hard, but if the girl was really super special and we had some things going on it could work.

I think somehow, but not completely. it's too easy to keep secrets from someone whom lives far away. but i guess if both persons are honest it would work.

It depends on the couple. Just like any other relationship.

Anyway, dup.
