I think a couple can actually know one another if they live together for sometime. Distance, to a huge extent, matters! What says?

Really? But does Krishna consciousness allow this association for sometime. I am not sure if that is the way to go. I think separation can also help. Varies from person to person.

By accepting the challenge of a long distance relationship, you also ... Reminding your partner of how much you think about and love him or her will score ...

Long distance relationships can work. I had a long distance relationship with my then boyfriend (now husband) for about a year. I was in the U.S. and he was in Trinidad, in the Caribbean. It was very difficult, and I missed him like crazy, but we held on and stayed true to each other. We had arguments, but we resolved them by email and phone. We became stronger as a couple and were even more committed and in love by the time I returned to Trinidad. It isn’t easy though. It’s probably one of the most difficult things to deal with emotionally.

No, i don't think so. I had seen many couples suffered separation due to distance. Unless, both of them are marooned in isolated island.

Well like I said it depends on the intensity of love that they have. If love is intense and loyality is there, then one will not indulge into foolishness. Thanks for the response.

You cannot say for sure. In some cases I have seen love increasing and in some cases vanishing, so it depends on persons to persons.

I agree with you that it depends on person to person.I think it is possible to manage such relationships if one is relly interested and willing.

I think that long distance relationships can work only if they meet at least one time a month and if their love is powerfull and sincere.Otherwise it doesn't really have many chances because eyes that don't see eachother,are forgotten with the time...

How about "absence maks the heart grow fonder"? But I do ten to agree with you that meeting once a month is really important. However, I managed to do it with just seing on webcam and talking a lot. Thanks for stopping by.

I guess it depends. Maybe a long distance relationship "forever" won´t work, but if two people are apart just for some time, maybe some months, I guess that it works and can be done.

Yes, i tend to agree with you. Most important of course is the seriousness of the persons involved. Thanks for posting:)

No I don't think they work in the long run. Short term might be okay? Ultimately I think if you want to be in a relationship, you want someone actually there. Not 1,000 miles away. Talking on the phone and emails are just not the same as the person being there with you.

It depends on what you're trying to get from the relationship. If you want to get married eventually and they're just away for a while, then stick with it till they come back. It's also a good thing for a married couple to have that trust that they can be away for a while and the other one doing just fine while they're away. If on the other hand you plan on sleeping with them every once in a while when they visit you, then tell them you'll be around for them, but you're also going to see other people, then just keep in touch with them. Finally, you'd be surprised how often this is, but many couples go into long distance relationships without really any goal other than staying together. Comming from the outside, I find it a little rude for them to do that to each other. They're not really progressing, they don't really have a goal with each other, and they're just trying to hold each other back from finding what they want. In which case my suggestion would be to break it off and find someone you'll be happy with for whatever you want.

yeah, distance matters since in most cases its seen that long distance relationship don't work out , but If love is actually sincere than nothing can separate the two , and if doesn't last that simply means that it wasn't meant to be ....

Hi there! I can say YES, all kinds of relatioships works..even if it is long distance. My girl and I got apart for 2 years but we're still together now, going strong. Yes, it's very hard to have a long distance realtionship that your loved one is far away from you. But it all depends to both of you on how you will manage your relationship. Distance is not a basis for a harmonious, happy and strong relationship. Distance is just distance, LOVE conquers everything
