In my own personal experience they don't work it's too far to travel and not enough time to get to know each other. When you see each other you will have a lot to talk about, but there is also the chance of growing apart. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder but, for any relationship to work you have to know and trust each other. How can love build if you live too far apart? None of my long distant relationships worked and when I met my husband he lived in Liverpool but, when he met me he fell in love and moved to be with me. Unless one of the couple is willing to move it usually will not work.

hi there! your definitely right about what you said. Im on a long distance relatinship recently, it started january of 2006 till january this year.. but unfortunately we broke up. It's a long story about the reason if why we broke up.. But to make it short, it goes something like this.. I lost my trust with him because he's taking me for granted. I give my 100% trust but suddenly he abused it!Long distance relationship need a lot of things, especially money.. 'coz if you don't have money you won't be able to text or call your gf/bf. right? it also need patience and trust.. lastly, trust is the most important thing to make a relationship last.. 'coz without trust you cant continue loving the person. ayt? but in my part i am willing to take the risk of waiting for him but how can i continue loving him if i already lost my trust. My trust was lost so i have a difficult time on letting it back. Though i still love him s0o much but i came to the point of letting go of him. why? 'coz im badly hurt... really really hurt!!!

I'd like to think it depends, long distance relationship will work if they work at it, keeping constant communication, thru phone or internet, you know stuff like that. but it takes triple the effort you put in, when you have the 'regular' type of relationship. it's not easy but as I said it can work, but they need to work on it, really really really hard.

Yes, long distance relationship works... coz it works with me & my honey for almost 3 years now.. all we need is love, trust & constant communication.. but maybe i can say too that it all depends on both partners how they handle their relationship..

If this happens to me, I don't know maybe it depends on the situation. If he is still my bf, I think there is a minimal possibility that our relationship would grow but if he is my husband, it would have a greater possibility to work because we have a vow that will keep us together for life. This also depends on the agreement of the couple and the way they handle their relationship. There are people who makes things work, it's with the attitude.
