My boyfriend and I have been through several different seperations during our total of 4.5 yrs together. But I will be transferring to a new college in another state this fall. So I am wondering if what we have, could be destroyed just from being apart.

Hai celia. I understood ur problem. but I think U have forgotten that whenever Our friends or relatives or whatever it may be if they are far then our interest or love will increase than when they are nearer because everytime we will feel with their memories only

Well it can really work as long as you have the fate in him and the loyaly in both of you is alive. The communication is the best key to save a long distance relationship.. its a bit hard coz you dont get to hug that person everymorning but still believing that he is really meant for you and love can wait nothing is impossible.

Thanks for responding, we have already spent alot time apart. I think we are capable of making this work. I just didn't think about the "not having someone to hug" part.

My boyfriend and I are miles apart for 1 year and 4 months but nothing has changed, we still love each other very much. We've been together for almost 5 years now, and this is the first time that we are apart from each other. It is not easy because we used to be together almost everyday before. But we survived. Sending sms everyday, talking over the phone twice or thrice a month and chatting on the net, help a lot. So, im sure, you're relationship too, will work. As long as you love each other and you are willing to make things work, and the passion between the two of you is always there even youre apart, you will survive.

It depends really Is your Love strong enough to survive that is what you need to look at How strong a Bond do you have They say absence make the Heart grow stronger I am sure that if your Love is strong it will work It worked for me and my Man before I moved here we lived 3 1/2 hours apart and only saw one another 3 times a year

Long distance relationships isn't just for everybody. I know of some couples who would end their relationship prior to the separation for they'd foresee that their relationship wouldn't work out with the distance between them. Then there are those who stick it through and manage to get by. Having had a long distance relationship myself before, I think the key to it was constant communication. Thank God for the internet, you don't really have to spend as before for there are cheaper ways of staying connected to one another. There's chatting, VoIP, e-mails... you name it! Just keep updating each other about your life and you'll feel like you were never apart. Good luck celia4evr! :D
