i'll post since no other jack wagons on here are.

i was in a long distance relationship for 8 months right out of highschool. she went to a college on the other side of the country, and she came back home for like spring break and christmas. things were great while she was gone. a lot of quality talks and it really tested our trust.

anyways some things happened when she got back, not pointing any fingers (her), and it just didn't work out.

LD relationships do and can work. just like any relationship shit, it takes work. like i said it ended once she came back from college. wack.

To be honest... with out the physical contact it isn't much of a relationship.
Sure being there over the internet or phone is ok... but it's rubish compared to a person being able to physcially be with you, hug you, support you etc etc.
It can definitely test the strength of a relationship... but depending on how long you are apart will determine if it works out.
Imagine being apart for years and years :/....

Pretty much I told my fiance that I don't do long distance relationships. It is to hard and can make a person feel very lonely.
She ended up moving to me :). She has been back and forth, but I always know when she will return which makes things a little easier.... but still very frustrating.

love is worth it, a pain in the ass sometimes but worth the try. Never know unless you try. glad it worked out for you though.

It's a matter of trust and interest really. Lack of openness and trust feeds suspicion and resentment in long distance relationships much more easily than 'normal' relationships. Also, the lack of physical contact can play a big factor. But if the couple can put aside suspicion and forsake (to an extent) the physical aspect of a relationship and still maintain interest in each other, then that puts them a step above most other 'couples' in today's society..

I've had a few different friends try having long distance relationships that didn't last more than a month each. Conversely, I have one friend that has been with his partner that lives across the country for almost three years and counting. It's up to the individual interests of each person. Physical vs. Intellectual, essentially.

nope =P it may work out for some couples but I find them rather stressful X__X and besides you never know if the other is cheating on you and what not so no, no long distance relationships for me

I had a long distance relationship when I was 18 and it didn't work out. Conversely, my best friend has been dating her boyfriend for over a year, and they've mostly been in separate states. He'll go down and visit her, or she'll come up here to visit, every few months. It seems to be working quite well for them.

just like any relationship, it can/can't work out.

There's already a thread about long distance relationships. Probably not even 20 pages back. Use the search engine alternatively, even though it isn't foolproof.

For a while it did. But then it crumbled. But to be fair, it lasted longer than any other relationship I had.

Anyway, dup.
