I think that it is bad, because you don't have that person close to you, don't the time to share and to know each other better. Even there some story that the couples has succeed in long relationship, but in my case i don't think it would work for me.

I'm in a long distance relationship too. It's hard because I was used to seeing him everyday and spending a lot of time with him. Now, it's just thru text. It takes a lot of trust, honesty, patience and extra effort to make a long distance relationship work. But there are relationships that survive. My parents did. My dad worked in a different country since I was 3 years old. He would come home for a vacation for 3 weeks evey year. My parents lived like that for almost 15 years. My dad still works in the same place but my mom is with him already for about 10 years now. Theirs was during the time when there were no cellphones yet. They would write each other thru snail mail and would even send what we call voice tapes. We record our stories in a casette tape as if we were talking to him personally and send the tapes to him in the post. But their love survived. I hope my relationship survives. I miss him terribly and I just want to be with him again. I wish all the best for you and hubby as well!

a long distance relationship for me would be to be honest i dont even know where to start, yet i had one and it didnt go so good, i knew him from where i am living in now and then he had to move because he was opening a business somewhere eles far, so we stayed together and said we'll be fine as long as we trust each other, so we did, then he goes and barely calls me not even text me, he would go out and dont call me till 5 in the morning, so with that being said it didnt really work, some people just want to him their loved ones around them and dont some can take it and wait, and i tired but he didnt so its been over and i have moved on.

Long distance relationships are not advisable. It is bound to break, it is not strongly founded. In the first place, why would you want to be far away from the one you love? Wouldn't you be defeating the purpose of having a relationship?
