Us when we were pregnant with our first baby
Yes, it was torturous, but I think knowing that he wanted so badly to see me made me fall even more in love with him. We're still together three years later.

Actually I am in one now. We met online in March, met in person in March and have been together ever since. We live about 3 hours apart and I go there every weekend. We have decicded that if all works out we will be moving in together in May of next year. I will say there has to be a lot of trust to make a long distance relationship work. It is hard to be apart, but when you are together again it makes it all worth while.

That sounds really nice. It sounds like your love for each other keeps you warm during the week without him. :)

Yes. There was this Austrian couple who had come to visit India. We became friends when they asked for a light and then had few in a bar talked spent all the days they were in my city together. Man they were nice people. We have been in touch via emails since and they are coming again this Christmas. Hope its going to be a blast.

That sounds great. It's always nice to make friends and friends from other countries. I'm in the USA but many in my job also work at home like me are from the UK and I adore all of them. We work and chat on MSN.

That's a long time. I bet you had a lot of fun taking those trips, and hanging out with him. I had a long distance relationship for 2 years after my b friend at the time had to move out of state. when we were reunited, he was a completely different person. yuck!

I wouldn't say I ever really had a long distance relationship but when I finished my high school I went to college for a couple of months while my boyfriend (husband now ) and I were still together and we still went out , we talked on the phone every couple of nights and I came home on the weekends . I moved back home after a couple of moths though .

I'm still in one and we're doing extremely well :) Planning to move in together next spring :) We've been long distance for almost 2 years now (our entire relationship). I was in one before this (waaay before) and it didn't go so well, but it wasn't the distance that was the problem.

The only long distance relationship I have ever had is when my hubby goes out of town for work. We talk every night and when he comes home, WE make up for lost time.

I'm currently in a long distance relationship because of a work related thing. It's hard though! Not being able to see each other everyday or talk makes the time go by slower.
