it happened to one cousin of mine.. he came here to my country and while he was here he met someone involved with "the family" (and i mean that she knew pretty much the whole family) and she was hung on him but he was trying to get away because to him it wasn't gonna work out while the two lived in different countries... the thing is, apparently, she doesn't cares that much about such... but well.. what do you think? can a long distance (and i mean different countries) relationship work out?

I have been in a long distance relationship for well over a year now, and it's the best relationship I have ever had, the man I am with is very good to me and I could not ask for better ever. I live in America and he lives in Sweden and we often visit each other, the next visit to be made will be in Sweden, I will stay with him for a month, and over this summer he was also with me for a month. We will not completely be in the same country to live until we are both done with college, and that will be in about four years, but we are very patient and we can wait, we are making the relationship work great and that's all that really matters right now. As long as you can have good communication, and can make some sacrifices, long distance relationships can work very beautifully! I can only say this because I am experiencing one right now .

I know someone who had a long distance relationship for several years over a few countries - meeting up for a year at a time inbetween - now they are married, have bought a house together which they both live in and have a beautiful little girl. So, I guess they can work out.

It can work as long as both of them cooperate on it. It would be futile if they don't work together at all and if only one among them clings to the possibility while the other would have no regard or give effort for the relationship to work out.
