When two people found a sparking light like a twinkle star that ignites the feeling where it can't be explain that's what love is. Loving is not a sin. Love can be more profound if both partners are near each other. Where they can express what they had feel inside. To some point, there are also partners whose far apart but the love they feel of each of them still remains. That's what we call long distance relationship. Distance is somehow a barrier if temptation is there. But if you trully believe that long distance relationship will go through then pursue what you desire. Have you tried long distance relationship? Which is better, long distance or the opposite? site your reason?

I already tried having a long distance relationship. I found it is hard to love someone that is not beside you as you always wanted. After years of our long distance relationship, I just found out that he cheated on me :(. Because of that I broke up with him immediately, and hated him. Now I am friends with him again. But I actually don't consider him as a friend, but just an acquaintance. He's sweet as always, but I'll never know if he's saying the truth or not cause never can I see his facial expressions.

I have been in a long distance relationship for almost two years now, and it is one rollercoaster ride! It ain't easy at all, but if both parties are happy, why not pursue it? I believe the two most important things are: TRUST and COMMUNICATION. As the cliche goes, Love knows no boundaries. As to how far our relationship could go? Well, that I do not know yet. I am just taking it one day at a time.

a near relationship is better for sure but i agree with you if we have a long distance relationship and really love the person then its ok as long as we be near soon. i had a long distance relationship before and it didnt work bcs the guy i was with was very careless and i was always feeling i care more than him so i ended up not feeling for him the same anymore and we broke up. but if both care and both want it for sure it can work. but near relationship is better bcs you have more ways to show your care^^

Yes i was in one but it did not work for me because the time that we needed to know one another was not adequate, sometimes my partner would not turn up when we were to meet.Its really stressing but if you can understand one another it can work.I would preffer the opposite of a long distance relationship because you have more time to be together and know one another.

I ever tried long distance relationship but it didnt work well. We broke up after 3 months. Im a type of a possessive and jealous girl. I really cant trust my couple. So its better for us to end the relationship even though its hurt coz i loved him, but I dont want to hurt him with my jealousy. I prefer to not have long distance relationship anymore. Coz its hurt for me

I have tried a long distance relationship with a girl,but it was very difficult there is always the matter of trust,you can never know for exactly if she is been faithful to you Long distance relationship never work and there are many reasons for that and i have a saying "the eyes that don't see each other forget each other"Personally i think if you want a good relationship find a girl that you can touch her,see her,kiss her

I am currently into a long distance relationship. There are times when it is really difficult like if you feel alone and he's so far away, but today, there are lots of ways where you can feel closer to each other like internet or celfones. Although, it may not be the same, but if you really love each other, distance may not be a total hindrance for that. You just have to trust each other and believe that eventually, you will be together again,and you will treasure those moments more and cope up with the time you have lost.

I have been into long distance relationship once, when my husband has to go abroad for work. I was left to raise our son and believe me, it was not fun! Long distance relationships are hard for they require constant communication. Thanks to technology though, we have conquered distance between our loved ones, yet, there is really no substitute for the real thing! Heartaches due to misunderstanding abound which takes days to resolve, sometimes weeks or worse even months. In our situation wherein, money was the sole factor why my husband has to go far, I was not relieved by the amount of money that goes into our bank account. So when my husband came home and new opportunities came, I boldly refuse to accept. In marriage,there is no greater reward than to raise a family with a husband and wife to share the task no matter how difficult.

I am currently in a long distance relationship and have been for over 2 years now. Believe me it hasn't been an easy thing. At first I thought it was going to be super easy, but as time has gone on it has gotten a lot harder. I personally believe that if you love the other person and trust the other person in the relationship then the long distance is not a problem as well as being able to be in contact with them as well. Communication is a great thing especially in a long distance relationship. For me, it has been awesome because it has forced my sig. other and I to get to know one another without being in the same place together. Then when we are together it makes our times that much more special. For me I have had the relationship that also wasn't long distance with my x husband, and there are pluses and minues to both, but I believe that if you follow your heart it will not steer you wrong.

even with temptation, it if you truely want to keep the relationship, keep your eye on them, and be suspicious. If they get mad they are doing something wrong. If they respect it, and act the same way, then that means they truely care about you and how you feel, and they share your feelings. Try Hard and it can work, But only temporarily, long distance relationships are impossible keep as a permanent option.

Long distance relationships often don't last. Some work but I've heard lots of stories about it that didn't work. I've been in one before, my first bf went to Japan for work, after a year we lost communication, I just learned from a friend that he has a new gf already. The saying 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' is not true in this situation. I believe lovers should not be away from each other for more than a month or else.... prepare for the unexpected.

I've been in a long distance relationship before, and I thought I knew the person well enough and given all my trust to him just to find out that he's fooling me all along. He managed to exchanged emails and call me sometimes, but i was wondering when he calls me he is either outside their house or at work, he never calls me at home until I found out the reason why. The man was married already and that he was fooling me all along, at that instant dumped him! Well, long distance relationship never works for me.. but thankfully i am now happily married to a very loving man.:)
