long distance relationship
October 3, 2008 6:42pm CST
I am currently in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for nearly six years already. We were together on our first year, but he got his US visa and flew to the states after. We haven't seen each other for four straight years. Our relationship went to points were it came to the rocks, but we manage to fix those eventually. He came home only for two weeks after four long years. He might come back after one year again. Do you think it will be practical if I kept the relationship and wait? Should love still be the ultimate basis in keeping the relationship, even if it meant waiting another four years for his arrival again?

I've been a long distance relationship before which lasted two years and I must say that trust is an even bigger factor in this kind of relationship than normal relationships where the lovers are together. If you can survive that and still stay in love then I must say it's going to be all worth it. If love isn't the ultimate basis of going into and keeping a relationship, then what is? For me that's all I need, everything else is just circumstantial.
