Long distance Relationships

Long distance relationships or otherwise known as LDR, do they really work? I've known couples who can't survive them and there also some people who are comfortable and happy with it. How can couples survive long distance relationships? Do they have to be in contact 24/7? Is the saying true that absence makes the heart grow fonder or is it the opposite where absence makes the heart wander. I'm very interested to know your opinion on this. Thank you in advance.

It's very rare that long distance relationship works especially if the couple are not yet married. because it's very easy for an individual to go astray especially when you are missing someone, you tend to look for comfort somewhere. I also believe that no amount of email or call can replay a kiss or a hug from the one you love. I congratulate those who are on long distance relationship but ended up in with each other in the end because it shows how strong and how committed they are to their relationship. More often, i see failures than successes. And mine is one of the failures. Cheers!

I think the thing about LDR's is that they can't stay that way forever. My boyfriend and I started as LDR's and eventually he moved here to be with me. Sooner or later if it is a serious relationship one person has to move. I don't think it can be maintained as an LDR for years.
