For me distance is not the end of the world in a relationship. Although sometimes you may feel like you are losing faith in your relationshop at times.. but hold fast and trust your heart! I truly believe that love & relationships are what make our life special and that ones built on love & understanding are always worth preserving regardless of the miles that may separate 2 people.

I agree with you charlina...even though for me a long distance relationship will work only if you have realistic hopes of being together sooner or later. I mean, when feelings are first quality, you love each other and your plans and perspectives are alike, then two people can put up with many obstacles the get in the way, but i think that you must have like a deadline, you must be convinced that you will finally be with that person forever, or at least for me it would be too heartbreaking.

yes, I have hon and i can assure you that if you have no real expectations of it finishing and turning into a normal relationship it can get really frustrating in the long run. I liked your post, so i felt compelled to answer :)

My fiancee & I are long distance, and will be for a couple more years. It's so hard, but it's worth it. I feel LDRs can work if there's a definitely ending point to the distance. If two people are together with no idea when they'll be together... THAT'S frustrating. It's romantic at first, planning to see each other and everything, but after so long it gets annoying :\

I so agree with you ancazur....that's exactly what i meant. LDRs are hard, but doable if love, trust and romance are there. But you must have a sort of date in which you're going to see each other and be together. Wish you the best luck in yours!! only two years to go :)

A long distance relationship is really hard but if both parties try to work it out it would be successful.communication and trust really matters in this kind of relationship..sometimes people get tempted with other people but temptation is normal,what we do with the temptation that we feel is what really would weigh very hard on the relationship.

In my case, yes, it's really work. My boyfriend is in Canada, but everyday were keeping in touch. Sending email, chatting and texting. If there are special occasions, were sending gifts to each other..We both say I LOVE YOU, everyday..i think that's enough for us to have a strong relationship. Because, having a good communication, will keep your love strong..

A little distance is good in a relationship, but when it's too much the love sinks in a sea of tears. I lived it and i will not live it again.

I think that it can work provided theres trust and understanding between the two.
