I didn't experience that situation but I want to know what happens if suddenly your boyfriend/girlfriend for some reason has to go overseas
Is it foolish to wait for someone?
Posted 1/11/15

but I wouldn't want to be the one waiting.

It's not foolish at all, but you do have to realize that long distance relationships come with a whole different set of challenges than standard relationships do. A long distance relationship can work but it in many ways takes more work than a standard one does. Plus, it also really helps if there is some sort of established time line for the time you're spending away from each other. It's a lot better if you know going in that it's going to be for a year or until one of you finishes school or something than just a totally open ended time frame.

I don't think it's foolish as long as both parties have the patience and commitment for their relationship. It'll get hard at one point but they'll have to endure.

I don't think so. I was in one for two years while my partner was off at grad school.

I'd said sex, not orgasms.

Just kidding.

I don't think it's foolish, just hard.
Being in a long-distance relationship opens many more doors to situations where problems may occur.


But I guess some people make it work.

It depends on how long they make you wait. If it's over a year I think you're really doing a disservice to yourself to put yourself in this position. Unless you both agreed you're both in it for the long haul and you're going to move in together (i.e. after they're done with school). Make sure you're on the same page in the relationship and that your goals are the same.

Long distance is 2hard 4meh in terms of romantic relations.
I interact with people online a bunch but I couldn't imagine long distance dating any of them without actually, visible contact. God knows I've had romantic feelings for a few people online but I couldnt envision the relationship EVER working, nor were my feelings reciprocated.

Generally speaking, I don't think it's foolish. Like spazzy06 above me said, it depends on how long they make you wait and vice versa. I've been in one and although it didn't work out in the end, I have no regrets for trying. It's definitely tough but I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying/doing it.

Is it foolish to be in love?

I dont think it is at all. If you truly love them, you'll wait.
Posted 1/11/15
I don't see why not. If you love him or her.
