The most important thing in a long distance relationship is that you continue to trust one another and remain faithful. Talk to each other on the phone any chance you may get. Write each other. Anything. Just because you can't see each other doesn't mean you can't remain in contact. Any opportunity that presents itself to talk to each other should be taken. I've been in a long distance relationship for 4 months now and it's what has gotten us through it.

oh, yeah i forgot also,"writing" it maybe old style but it still works because what if he's not available in the computer or too much work that he doesn't have time to internet. as of now, all options are open with the new technology, but it's up to the both of them on how are they gonna pull it off.

Yes although I do not believe in long distance relationships I would like to believe that it will work and that love will prevail. My advice would be to just focus on being a better you for the loved one and keep in touch as much as possible. Besides two years will fly by like nothing, so don't worry about it. :)

Hi kafueenu! I've been to a long distance relationship before and it was really hard. There are times that I lost trust just thinking what he would do while we're away from each other. All I can say is that communicate as often as you can because if the communication is less, that's the time the "trust" word will be questioned.

Yep, communication and trust are key. ANYTHING that you can use to get a hold of each other matters most. In your case, he'll be needing a lot of support since, I assume, he'll be working and might be worked to the bone day in and day out. Two years will go by swiftly.

Hello there, The best way for both of you is to have constant communication. He doesn't have a single excuse if you both use Messengers, CEllphones with big loads, and cosntant email like writing diary to each other in the emails. if he gets tired of that someday,that's when you get suspicious. two years is a long time, any thing can change for that matter. just keep talking and serenading to each other.

Hello kafueenu, have faith and be strong always. Always make sure to have constant communication with your boyfriend. I've been to Dubai before and I've known some good people who brought their girlfriend or wife to live with together there but there are some also who practiced infidelity to their girlfriend or wife. Being too far there's always the possibility of temptation. If you always have TRUST with each other, no matter what, you'll always be together in the future. Goodluck and Happy mylotting.
