I dont' think there are that many good points. I have one at the moment and it is very hard. I guess the best thing is that because you don't see each other very often you are always happy when you are together.

i understand how you feel. being away with the one you love most is sometimes like killing your heart into pieces especially when you miss her/him the most. but my boyfriend and i focus more on the good points rather than the bad. we have enough confidence and we feel secure about the relationship that we have... enough to keep us happy everyday even when oceans apart.

i am in a long distance relationship for almost a year now. and it's really difficult especially in the beginning. i was glad we took time to think about and did not rush to get into the relationship. we gave many months to think about it first. up to the point when we realized that we can't get on another day without finally saying i love you to each other. the bad point is only the distance between the two people in love. it's the only bad thing i can see. and good points are a lot. when two people are inlove, everything flows with it, love, respect, trust, honesty, loyalty, thoughtfulness, care and so on... there will always be good points and bad points in relationships... long distance or not. it's still up for the two persons involve on how they are willing to fight for their love.

I don't think it's very ideal.. If you could see each other every weekend it wouldn't be so bad, for awhile, as a matter of fact it could keep you getting along better and keep the relationship more romantic and exciting.. Without having to do the dishes for two, etc.. My husband was an "over the road" truck driver when our children were small. It was good he was home on the weekends, but it was bad that he missed so much! And they missed him. But it was good for me because it was less work.. And when he got home he was always happy to see me.. Anyway that was the positive spin I put on it. He's now a local driver, and is home every evening and weekend, so that is much better. :))
