A lot of people say that long distance relationship doesn't work.Some prefer to be single rather than to be apart with their girl/boyfriend.They believe that constant communication makes the relationship stroger.However, we still consider phone call,texting or conversation through internet ways of communication. But still a lot of long distance relationship ends. Does distance become a hindrance to love or a test to your relationship?

Some works. Some dont. Like in my part. My past girlfriend is currently working in Providenciales. We've been for almost 5 years. But then when she had herself comforted perhaps in that far away land, she turns infidel. So I decided to free her.

for me, distance is not a hindrance...rather, it is a challenge for us on how to keep our relationship strong even you are far from your boyfriend or girlfriend... distance doesn't matter...it is in the loyalty and trust between you and your beloved one.

maintaining a relationship like this is hard... i do believe that both parties should be faithful and that they should trust each other... love is not enough to maintain this kind of relationship. it depends upon the couple involved on how to make their relationship last for a life time. =)

hum. I think it depends on how much you love your boy/girlfriends. I had a friend that she can barely go thru that her boyfriend was not by her side, so she found a new guy right here, and still keep in touch with her long distance boyfriend on the other side, and I think she was not that love her boyfriend, she just felt lonely. It might be a test to your relationship, but if you love your boy/girlfriend enough, I dont think it will be a problem.

I dont really believe it hurts anything. It tests your strength of being able to stay loyal to your spouse. Im a military wife, going through my husbands first deployment, and it is difficult. Being away from him is one of the hardest things ive ever done. We found out i was pregnant the morning he deployed, and so its hard because hes missing everything, even though he cant help it. I try to call him at least once a day everyday to make sure hes okay, and to let him know that i love him. Even though hes on the other side of the world, ive never felt closer to him. We write each other letters, emails, i send him pictures and call him all the time. He may not be here next to me, but he knows i love him, and i know he loves me. And being away from him for so long makes it that much better when you see each other again for the first time in months. If you love who youre with, it doesnt matter where they are, you can make it work. You just have to stay strong for each other.

The main reason for long term relationship is the proper understanding between the partners, as simply said its not that easy to understand in once it takes time and lots of patience.You need to renew your relationship every now and then .Main hindrance of internet or online relationship is that most of them don't reveal much things and you may not be honest , but when truth comes out relationships damage.

Well it totally depends how they really love each other. for most they would faill in this since they need physical presence but if you truly love each other distance should not be a hindrance to your love.

Hi there Kay Mercado! I think that it depends upon the persons involved and their willingness to make the relationship work. It's not possible and I know a few people who are in a strong long distance relationship but I know more who tried to make theirs work but failed. I am one of those people who cannot handle long distance relationship because I always need to be with the one I love, hear his voice and feel his touch. It would be very hard to stay in love and stay faithful.

It does test a relationship and it also depends on both parties on how much they are willing to put in the relationship they are in. I have a friend who really believes that long distance relationship won't work, asking me regarding my other friend who is in such relationship whether they are still together. I tell him he's wrong. The friend who is in the long distance relationship, a girl, does have a lot of problems in her relationship, but I think it only makes their relationship stronger. She told me that meeting her boyfriend too often or too rarely both have its problems. But after many years, the relationship is still going strong and what it looks like to me, they will definitely make it through to the end as long as they both strive for it, not just one side trying hard or anything.

Distance is a great hindrance to a relationship. i had a boyfriends once, I had a long distance relationship with.At first it all went fine, Exchanging text and calls. Later he'd stop texting and calling. when I called him he'd say he had no load and a lot of alibis. Sooner I found out that he establish another relationship with other girl who's in the place where he is. so I think Long distance relationship hardly last.
