Having a long distance relationship is not that easy not only the distance between the couple but things that you have to do to make the relationship stronger and going. Both of you must be strong enough to be able to fight the loneliness. How about you guys did you experience or are you having a long distance relationship? How can you make the relationship stronger amd intact?

I guess in a way I am having a long distance relationship. We were long time friends to begin with, and we enjoyed each other's company. We talk daily on the phone, usually in the evening. He calls to see how my day was or talk about his. We live 4 hours apart, but he comes up for a visit about once a month. I think that in the case of long distance relationships, they can work, but I think maturity has a lot to do with it. I mean we aren't talking marriage or anything like that, we've both been there done that. We might end up living together, but that is a long ways off too. For it to work, you have to stay in touch, honesty above all else is important, and be honest with yourself as to what your expectations are.

I agree to you palonghorn. Honesty is the most important specially when it comes to the expectations and to the feelings.

I've experienced it before and I hope that it will last..we MSN and skyped each day but things got different when she got into a busy mode that's the time when things screwed up..besides there's an A$$hol3 trying to get her..in the end, oh well, you know what i wanna say... What's important is commitment to each other

i am in this kind of relationship right now.. and you're right prettyface its not that easy,specially because we met online.. we started as friends but eventually got hooked in each others "company".. until now we are still very much inlove with each other.. we meet 3x a year (huhuhu oceans apart).. thanks for all these gadgets like laptop, iphone, webcam, text messaging, etc.. we constantly communicate so that we may feel like we are close to each other even physically we are not.its tough but it will really depend on how the two of you address the situation..

I did have before. You need to find a way to get connected for real even just for a day. One should sacrifice to go to the other partners place. That is the thing.
