Me and my partner text very often. I could even count it on my finger. I know the relationship doesn't work with that. Maybe because we are far from each other. And my attention was converted into someone who understands me more than I ever expected.

Yeah it can be very difficult to keep a long distance relationship working.As it is hard to have a successful relationship in normal circumstances. But if each person works at it they may be able to make it. It all depends on the individuals and what they want.

i guess it depends upon the both of you. if you really love your partner , and if both of you trust each other ,long distance relationship will surely works , you just need to have communication eveyday,you need to speak out how you really feel with him,both parties must be open to each other ., with love, trust ,understanding and communication long distance will surely work. have a nice day

Yeah I agree with you. Commitment is an important part of every successful relationship. They can make it work if they know what they both want. And if they both are willing to keep at the relationship despite the distance.

Opinions will vary from people to people. But my opinion is that if you have previously spent much time with your lover and have shared your life with him/her before getting into a long distance relationship, then it's not that difficult to cope up with. Relationship doesn't need time to blossom, rather it needs a good understanding between the two. This understanding can develop in no time as well !

Yeah I agree with you. If a couple has known each other before they have been separated by distance then that makes a big difference. They know how to relate to one another better. This will do a lot for there relationship.

For me, distance is not the problem in a relationship because it is all about love, trust and feelings. Distance is doesn't matter if your really inlove to each other. But if you know that your relationship with your boyfriend doesn't work through texting, talk to him and be honest about your feelings for him in this way you will know what to do next.

What if he doesn't even want to talk with me?I am really confused right now, we are still with each other yet why does he doesn't want to communicate with me?

Refresh your memory and try to remember the reason why he doesn't want to communicate with you and if you did nothing wrong then maybe its about time for you to move on and go on with your life. You cant solve the problem and save your relationship with your bf if he doesnt want to communicate with you.

my boyfriend works abroad for almost 4 years now. we only communicate 4 or 5 times a month. there were major problems that we encounter while he was there, and it almost torn me to pieces. i really don't trust him that much anymore, but my love for him kept me holding on. it's not easy but we are really trying our best to be together at heart.

Hello cromainer :) Long distance relationship is not a problem for me and my boyfriend.. We’ve been together for 4 years.. Sometimes we had a fight because of little things like miscommunication between me and my boyfriend.. We passed a lot of sad and happy experiences together.. The keys are love, communication, honesty, and respect each other.. Hope this can help you! ^^

hi cromainer, Long distance relationship is not easy but it depends on how you work things out now a days there are lot of modern ways to communicate. Distance is not a big deal if two person are really in love with each other and willing to work out the relationship Sometimes we are confused if our partner is not around but don't let the love fades away. happy mylotting

It would be close to three years since my girlfriend went to Qatar to work there, and since then we communicate using Facebook, Skype, and through email. We also suffered the ups and downs of long distance relationship, but in the end we were able to keep our relationship strong. I guess long distance relationship boils down to keeping the faith together.

Thanks for the positive outlook of this kind of relationship. I hope it does work for me too. But for now, we are really on our down side.Hope things get to be better someday.

I think that long distances relationships are hard. As it is difficult to keep a close strong relationship when a couple spends regular time together. There are people who have successful long distance relationship but they are few and far in between. After all a person starts a relationship because they want companionship.
