They're very hard, especially if your partner was overseas, 13 hours away by plane. I couldn't even do half a year, so I have no idea how people manage 3 years or to even make it work.

Yes, long distance relationships work. Military members from every country have been doing for a long time . It takes a lot of commitment, honesty, and trust.

If you had a pen-pal for over 5 years, you might as well say you have a long distance friendship.

I believe in long-distance relationships
because I've been
in tons of them. They can be really
difficult just like any relationship,
but as with any relationship, it has
its up and downs.

However, every relationship
I've ever had really ended horribly lol.

Me and my S.O.'s used to make
movie dates on Netflix
and share accounts and stuff...
and play online games as well.

That way we had little
"dates"

Some people can, other people can't. Personally, I don't like long distance relationships, I tried it a month ago or so, didn't work out, it's not the same as having that person with you.

Sailors, Truckers and Soldiers do it all the time.

It could work, in my case I tried to get in one, but well I actually got paranoid of thinking I was just being played; so trust is a big main issue in it.

The key is communication. That's what I think. It will work only if you do whatever you can to make it work, and that means communicating openly with each other. If something is bothering you or if something is becoming a problem, then you should be able to discuss it and resolve it together. Obviously, it's not for everyone... but it can definitely work if both are committed to making it work.

its possible.
I'm sorta in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend.
He just goes to school here, but comes back home for most or half of summer, and for other holidays like winter break.
We met online as well. And have been friends like 2 years before we decided to date.
Also we first met on an mmo. We like we so annoyed with each other too at first. Lots of fuck yous being thrown around lmao.
But after that we eventually became good friends once we figures out we have a lot in common.
And he was always there for me when I was feeling down. It was nice because I had serious problems atvthr time compared to now.
Super mentally ill & miserable, constantly depressed, had real bad anxiety problems & psychosis, often went to mental hospitals and stayed in them for a while too.
Clearly I'm fucking crazy so I'm a pain to deal with.
But he was able to see past my crazyness & deal with me. He even called me everyday when I stayed there.

Ok wow that sounded so ugly & anime & I said more than I really should.

But it is possible, for them to work out. You guys just need to really trust each other. More so than I would say in a relationship with someone you see in person practically everyday already.

I've never been in a long distance relationship, so my response may not help. Sure it's possible...just a bit difficult. Like previous posts have noted, trust is probably the main issue. People will always somehow find a way to act paranoid or think the worse is happening.

I definitely wouldn't recommend starting out long distance, but that's just me, everyone tackles these things differently. But if I were to have a long distance relationship, it would have to be with someone I've been with for a long time and the basic stuff, like trust and respect are deeply rooted in the relationship. For me, that would be near-impossible with someone I barely know. I've had some relationships starting out close and ending up being long-distance and they require so much more from both sides, almost to the point where it can be exhausting and take its toll on the relationship.

They work or rather can work but it kinda seems unfulfilling so I'd rather not.

FAR FROM IMPOSSIBLE

Me and all my ex's dated long distance me in Australia them America.

MY longest relationship lasted 3 years it only ended due to the fact she was being controlling and it was impacting me psychologically.

Mine didn't work out, but my old roommate in college managed to make his last. The key as said before is communicating enough to keep their interest, and little enough to make them miss you. It's a complicated game that not many are able to manage. You also have to take into account of other guys/girls making the moves on them. It's tough, but it's possible.

Of course. It might be the way you meet your soul mate, that you wouldn't otherwise.
