do you think a long distance relationship will work?

My boyfriend and i are together into a commitment for nearly six years now, we use to see each other for around 3-4 years, now we have to live away from each other for our studies. We have our communication intact but it isn't everyday that i get to talk to him because of a busy schedule. And for about 5 months away from each other now, i have received a lot of messages from reliable friends that they are seeing my boyfriend with another woman, i asked him about it and said they are just friends and belong to same group for their class. But mind you guys, women have good instincts and quite worried about it. what do you think i should do about it? will things still work even we have been together for many years and have known each other since we were still kids?

I will be the first to admit that being in a long distance relationship is very hard. I am in one and will always be in one. My fiance goes away for work and it is very hard some days to talk to eachother. The key to having a long distance relationship and making it work is TRUST. If you trust eachother you have nothing to be worried about it. If you have the love there for eachother (where you cannot live without this person) this relationship will work. If you are so insecure about your man being around other females and always have that thought in the back of your mind that he is cheating then you shouldn't be in this relationship as you don't trust him. Remember it takes two to tango not just one. I think you should re-evaluate your situation and talk to him about it. Work something out if you can and if you can't then you will know what to do.

Hi friend, It all depends upon the relationship you maintain with each other.If you don't have proper relationship also,you can't stay for a long time.It all depends upon the commitments friend. Have a nice day.

oh, my friend,I'm sorry to hear that,I think you'd better talk with him but I advise you please keep quiet.try your best to recall your love together.Tell him how you love him and believe him. Neglect the gossip untill you know the truth. love need trust and privacy.

i never like this kind of relationship. but i am not saying that it won't work.. it's too risky.. we may lost so many opportunity and moments of life if we live separated.
