I can say that this kind of relationship is for people who really love their partners. i mean, the really love thing. those people who can wait and understand each other even if they were thousand of miles apart and remains loyal and faithful. nowadays, very few people can stand this kind of relationship.. only those who are tough, can wait and have trust in the relationship make this. i really admire those people who can overcome this. for me, they are one-of-a-kind. :)

I have four years' long distance relationship. Now I stay together with my boyfriend happily. We trust each other. The most important thing is we have a belief that we each other are the ideal one and we can give each other the perfect life we want. have a nice day.

You are lucky and so your boyfriend is.There is the term "match" and personally I believe that only God can give us perfect match.

I agree with you! Long distance relationship only works out for those people who truly love their partners despite their distances. :)

This is a eternal topic and also can be find many times in mylot. So in my mind,I still keep my standpoint,do the lovers love each other enough?If yes I think that there is nothing in the world can stop and apart them including the long distance.

I am really not into a relationship now but I know a friend who had experience Long Distance Relationship. It was been hard at first but when you made a pact with somebody that you will trust and be faithful with each other, then each one of them really understand and apply it to daily life, then it is a good move to go long distance and still manage to continue long distance relationship. At first, you are bound to a commitment, so it is your responsibility as a lover to refuse temptation if there is any along your way.

Not to judge but in my own perspective it's difficult to maintain that relationship. Temptation is always every corner of our life and it only depends how faithful and strong your feelings with each other.I admire for those who stay an intact relationship though their far away from each other.

I totally agree with you. I was a great believer and fanatic of long distance relationship but i realized it's really difficult to have a long distance relationship as you need to have trust and patience and accept that you cant even hug him or touch him .It is difficult not to get bored with this kind of set up and you will always think that what if he's cheating on you.

Hi nhailojaye, thanks for sharing this valuable and interesting topic. Yes indeed that engaging long-distance relationship requires strong faith and trust to both partners for the existence of a relationship. I can actually relate on this scenario because my previous relationship is also my long-distance affair. Well, it is not easy to build up a sturdy foundation of trust to your partners. However, i can surpass all the fears, doubts, insecurities, jealous and being paranoid through trusting my partner and with the guidance of the Lord. We both establish constant communication every-time we both have free & leisure time such as, phone calls, skype, facebook chatting, frequently sending text messages and sometimes taking in yahoo messenger. With our routine, we definitely maintain our trust, respect and love with each other and fortunately until now we still hold our promises, happiness and commitment and I thank God for all the guidance to our relationship, long-distance yet seems that we are within reach everyday.

If you love each and found that special person, then distance doesn't really matter. My husband and I had a long distance relationship. We realized that we could trust each other. And this was in the days before computers, emails and cell phones. We mailed good ol' fashioned letters to each other and phoned each other from time to time. Long distance relationships do work. Even after we were married for 10 years, we moved. He had to stay behind to sell the house and I moved in with his mother, along with our 3 young children. His mother lived in a different state. We were apart for several months. But we knew that a long distance relationship will keep us together. I don't like being apart from my hubby but in both cases, it was what we had to do to keep our relationship and our family together.

Me and my boyfriend are on a long-distance relationship. We used to live in together in another city for four years without the knowledge of my parents. However, my father got sick just recently that I need to come home to take care of him. We decided to part ways, but we're still okay, we love each other so much and the secret for a successful relationship is having faith and trust.

Hi nhailojaye, I'm proud to say that me and my hubby surpassed this kind of relationship long time ago. My first serious boyfriend [now my husband :)] and I were in a distance relationship for almost 3 years. And that was very, very long time ago when cellphones were not yet there to keep us always connected, no internet to allow us to video chat, and only through letters did we usually communicate. Although there was already a PLDT telephone at that time, the cost was just too high to keep on using it. So we did our constant communication only through postal letters. At the onset of our relationship, we were so focused on making it last and never considered the idea that we would not be together for good. Probably, this was one reason why we're able to survive that obstacle aside from keeping our faithfulness for one another. To say it was hard, was just an understatement. But thank GOD, we're able to make it and we've been happily married for over 10 years now with two kids. For those who are in the same kind of situation as we had before, I'm sure they just have to strengthen their faith for one another and make GOD the center of their relationship as well.
