Do you think long distance internet relationships work?

Do you have a partner in another country? Have you met after meeting someone online, did things work out?

I met my now wife online and we are in year 2 of our marriage.. i spend a lot of time working in the UK but we are generally able to keep in touch 24/7. Not an easy thing to do with the distance but i couldnt have a better wife..

Congratulation to you! Yes, you are right about that you really need tweenty four/sever to take in touch just to communicate with your husband. I think you relationship to each other was really good. By the way, I would like to add that distance relationship can be compared in a building, which in order for the building to be long and last, you really need to start it very well and strong! I hope you get my point on it! Have a nibe day!

It really depends on the situation. I do have some friends that are already married in which they knew each other online. Some does not work out with the long distance relationship. Constant communication I guess will work the relationship and definitely trust.

I think your right a lot of it is communication. Without it a relationship can easily be lost.

im in a long distance relationship right now. basically because im in abroad and my partner is in the philippines. we try to work everything out by having time to talk. with all the technologies and means available, it would be a mistake not to work things out.

Hello lrglara, good day to you! Wow! I see that you are working abrod and I agree with you that the technology of the industry like computers and cellphone really helpful for you to communicate from each other! Then I also agree that communication is the number one way to make your distance relationship good and strong!

Hello mattwilkie, good day to you! Having relationship with other people with a distance was very hard because there are times that you can go meet each other personally, which the distance give a disadvantage, but I think distance does'nt give a disadvantage because there are part that distance enchance your faith and trust to your partner which is good for two of the partners. By the way, I do not have a partner which is far to me, like when she are in the other country. I do believe may be sooner I will have a partner far from me and I can say that it will work if we really love each other. By the way I have a friend who has a relation with other and they really far which they only meet in the internet by chatting, then after getting know each other they start a relationship and after several years they meet personally and got married! Now they are already married but still far away from distance, now the girl in other country still give many to his husband because she really trust him. Well, that's all meaning to say! For me distance relationshi p really depends to the partner on how they trust each other and how to work for each of them. That's all the end of my response here in your discussion! I hope I give a good one! Thank you! Happy posting and happy earning to you!
