Happy endings in Long distance relationships

I have heard of long distance relationships that gone bad, or worse. And I've heard of happily ever after long distance relationships. Can anyone site is it really possible? and what kind of formula did you use to make it a successful one. To be honest I have a sister that is engaged in a long distance relationship with a partner with a different racial and cultural background. And I've seen her cry, laugh and argue with his guy and I think it won't work out because my sister loves the guy so much and every time her BF invites her to go to his country she will rush to his country just to be with him. And I dont think it's helping her out career wise, because everytime she rushes to his country all her work is the one suffering and she knows it. what do you think is the solution about her case? I wanted to help her.

I've been in a long distance relationship before. No doubt it was very hard, especially with the time difference. i have no idea how i survived that, but i did. drove me nuts at times and made me cry too. but there are many means to keep in touch; telephone, email, IMs, digi cam..etc. i missed him a lot, every single second and wish i could see him or for him to be physically there with me, whenever i was sad or happy. you need to have a solid trust, as you're not able to see what your other half is doing. And you need to have lots of faith, enough to not make you give up on your relationship. but i believe, in the end, love is what that holds you together. if two people really love each other, no matter how far they apart they are, they'll be able to go thru the relationship. love knows no boundaries;).

What kind of job does your sister do is she self employ? Does he ever comes to visit her?

yep she's self-employed but she hasn't really get going about her career. And yes he have visited her twice or thrice i guess. But just for a short time because his business is not in my country

It depends on how your sister feels about this person, and how long she has known the guy. Have you sat down and talked to her about how you're feeling about her going out with this guy? I think that rushing into things is a big mistake, that often ends in tears. Heck, happened to me. I'd say sit down and talk to her, and find out how each of you are really feeling. Hope this helps :) Best regards. Killian

Yes we're close and we talk about it all the time but the problem is she rushes to him stating that they are starting out a business but it's been several months but nothings happening to their plans. Ive visited them once to see their situation and I think they are serious about their relationship but the problem is that she can't have a stable career especially now with her bf planning a career move that hasn't made any developments yet. And the problem is that she goes to him as a tourist and after her visa expires she will return here and it goes on and on like that. I'm starting to worry about her but thnx I will try to talk to her more and ask her honest and bolder.

well, i cant say its happy ending cause it doesnt end yet. the relationship is still ongoing as a couple. not married yet. but the relationship is going strong and smooth.
