yes, i do believe that long distance relationship will work coz it depends on how deep and open your communication with one another. As long as you love each other and most important in a relationship is TRUST. For you my friend would you go for it?

i didn't work for me. i've been through a lot of long distance relationships, at first i thought it would work but then again i was wrong because after having 3 relationship i gave up with the thought that it will work out. but now i'm no longer think of it because i'm happily married for 3 years now.

I had a LD relationship before and it lasted 3 years before I ended it.cos I was with someone else.But it didnt mean that LD relaship cant work out.I didnt like this guy very much since the very begining.90% of the reason I was with him was that he is tooo good to me and I just didnt want to let him go although I wasnt very much attracted to him.

I would only have a long distance relatinship if I was in a relatinship with a guy for a while then he decided to leave and live somewhere else. I just cant give up on someone I love. However, if I met the guy through a website and hadnt met in person, I wouldn't bother dating him and then stayingg exclusive to him. Id have to have met and been attached to a man for a while before I decided to stay faithful to him while only seeing him once ever month or two, or more.

I started my relation with my husband through long distance relationship..now we are married and still we working on long distance relationship..why? because he live in USA and I live in Philippines, but our relation working good because of trust of one another and dispite of distance, we still do communicated through internet, that why Im happy I got this computer and internet coz its only we can communicated each other. Trust is the issue when it comes to distance relationship! thanks for the discussion...

My dad just tried a long distance relationship with a girl from the ukraine and he got scammed for 500 bucks cuz he trusted her enough to send money for a plane ticket for her to come visit him. Feel sorry for him but atleast he learned a lesson. So with that said, hell no i wouldnt try a long distance relationship. After what happend to my dad and how i saw him react, id never trust someone on the internet like he did. Happy mylotting.

I dont agree to a long distance relationship, because i still believe that the presence of one another is important. When lovers are away from each other, there are some people that they will meet in the place where they are and they might fall for them. Especially when they miss being with their lover. Temptations are also present. Sometimes, they might yield to temptationss. So i don't believe that much in a long distance relationship.

There is a saying " you forget the eyes you don't see". Even with all the technology of today, it's hard to have a long time , long distance relationship. "Been there, done that", for real. I had a friend for 3 years, long distance letters, phone calls, once or twice a year we were seeing each other. it did not work.It always has to be a compromise, but you have to live together, otherwise it just slows down your life.Real down. Of course, if you know that in a certain period of time you'll be together "for ver", than , no problem.Like someone away for business, soldier. or alike. Gone for a while, but back to you! Otherwise, my opinion is that's only a waist of time and energy...

Hello I think it is a little harder and might take some work but they can work . and when you are together things are much more sweeter . if you as a couple can make it thru the time apart then that is saying alot and you can make it thru anything life may throw at you . Love is a risk and worth it either near or far away !

I agree with you. Long distance relationship works but only if the couple are willing to make sacrifices and if they truly love each other. Communication is really important because it is the binding agent of the relationship. I think I am willing to go for it because I trust my boyfriend and I know that we love each other very much that no matter how far we are from each other, we will still be together. I just hope that the time to be far from one another will never come. It will be hard but if better opportunities are abroad, I guess we will take it.

It entirely depends upon how I feel about the person - if she is "the One", then definitely yes! but if it's just a casual fling, and it's too much "effort" to keep going, then it's tough to last

sure.. and to say the truth, long distance relationships made me again when i was heartbroken once & i was totally knocked out by defeats in my fields. I am learner of stampede wrestling and i worship my aims very highly. once i was in fever with 102degree. but hopefully i participated in a match(sadly i lost). but you know where the power came to participate in the match? it was my elder sister(not my own), who is 550 kms away from me, cared me much & her wish is, i should win that tournament. For her happiness, i participated the tournament and did the best i can. To my luck, no relation is stable to me, even i am in correct in every ways(that is my fault?) but i surely believe in long distance relationships. but patience is much needed sometimes & there should be no ego between the two. only then, it works great!

I have been in a long distance relationship for the last 3 years. Ever since I met him and got together with him we have been doing this. I knew once I met him and started dating him that we would have to say our fair wells and we know that he will be coming home when he can. He works away on the pipe line here in Canada so he is usually gone 8-10 months out of the year and is home the rest of the time. But that is still alot that he is away. However as you said you have to be able to trust eachother and you have to want to be with the person and really love and care about the person. If you are willing to do that you can and will have a successful long distance relationship.

Well I do believe in long distance relationship. My fiancee and I started with a long distance relationship. But their is also a time when you really wanna be near her. For 6 months I was away from her, but the communication did not stop us I made sure that even I am that far I want her to feel that I am just near her.Now it's almost 2 years and it is still us. Now I am near her I don't want to be far away from her anymore. It's a matter of trust you said it right, and how strong are you from each other. Have a nice day to you!

I have experienced a long distance relationship for two years when my partner was in the ATO training in Manila. We wrote each other, because back then, there were no cellphones yet. That made our relationship stronger. I guess in our case, the saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder" is true for us. When he came back, we decided to get married. I think constant communication is a must in a long distance relationship to continue to keep in touch and to keep the deep feelings you have in your hearts. Have a nice day!

I would, and I am right now. I haven't seen the guy I'm dating right now in three years. Last year he joined the Air Force and is now stationed in Las Vegas (27 hours away from where I live). We started talking again around four months ago, and we've talked daily since then. The only time we didn't get to talk was in September when I was in France. This guy quit drinking for me, because I have issues with drinking in my family so I'm not comfortable with it.. He convinced everyone that he works for to give him the extra $1000 a month for living expenses and to let him move out of the dorms -- something that NO ONE else has been able to do that soon over there.. And next month I'm moving into our apartment with him. It's a huge step, yes.. I've been single for two years, patiently waiting for the guy that I truly felt was the right one.. I've never been so sure. I trust this guy with my life, and even though I haven't seen him in three years I know in my heart that it will work out perfectly. :)
