they say out of sight, out of mind... i dont think this is true, at least for people like me. hehe cause i feel that you long more for the person when he/ she is far away. and the more you misses the person, the more your love will grow if you are able to sustain and manage not to find someone else in your life just to fill in the emptiness that you are feeling. i sure hope so that i can deal with such a relationship if i am to be faced with it.

Never tried a long distance relationship. I can't really deal with it. It feels like it so uncertain. Like, do you really trust him completely? If I needed him, is he around? What if he needs me? For me, it's complicated. There's also an advantage. You would miss each other a lot.

I would not be able to have a long distance relationship with someone because you would not know what they may be doing when you both are not together.If you live in different states that would be very hard to do.I would be to busy worrying about if they are sleeping with other people behind my back.That something I would not take my self through think about you find out that that s exactly what they have been really doing that would be alot pain with that.

I've been in a long distance relationship before. No doubt it was very hard, especially with the time difference. i have no idea how i survived that, but i did. drove me nuts at times and made me cry too. but there are many means to keep in touch; telephone, email, IMs, digi cam..etc. i missed him a lot, every single second and wish i could see him or for him to be physically there with me, whenever i was sad or happy. you need to have a solid trust, as you're not able to see what your other half is doing. And you need to have lots of faith, enough to not make you give up on your relationship. but i believe, in the end, love is what that holds you together. if two people really love each other, no matter how far they apart they are, they'll be able to go thru the relationship. love knows no boundaries ;) .

Temporarily. I met my husband in an online chat room. We dated for a little over a year before we moved in together. I lived by Erie, PA and he was near Ocean City, MD (about an 8 1/2 hour drive one way). We talked on the phone every day and he would drive to PA for one weekend each month to spend with me. I think youcan deal with a long distance relationship as long as you have an end in sight to where it won't be long distance anymore. I wouldn't go no longer than a year though.

Long distance relationship is difficult to sustain. In my opinion, besides trust, honesty, understanding, love also needs some show of care, share and concern. Being deprived of these things for a very long time, can slowly erode the feelings they have for each other. Suspicions may creep in and the relationship might be affected. Of course, some people may say that 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' and their love may prove even more stronger than ever. I guess there are two sides of the coin.

I would say that they would be hard but there is people out there everyday that does it. I would not want to. But if the love is strong enough it can outlast anything.

I have an ex-girfriend in the long distance.So,I have some experience to it.In my opinion,the most importance is to endure your own loneliness.Because of the long distance,the two people can not meet each other,exclude the telephone and E-mail.Keep contacting with them.That is the key,I think.
