I'm now hundreds of miles away from my boyfriend. This is my first time. The weird thing is I no longer feel that I miss him.

i think long distance relationships depends on the couple themselves...if they're willing to wait for one another, no matter what, if it is needed, they will sacrifice..well, i can say this because i'm in a long distance relationship now...my boyfriend has been gone 6 months ago but still i can say were still strong...and were almost turning 2 years this november...it's just a matter of faith and trust in one another..i know, it's kinda hard to trust somebody who's far from you but if you won't trust him, who would?and just think what will happen to your relationship...that's all..

Absence only make the heart grow fonder for a while.... after too long, it makes the heart wander.

im in a long distance relationship, too. i'm still dealing with it. i used to think it won't work, since boys are good customers of TEMPTATION. but i found this advice very helpful. " there's alays a possibility that a person can get attracted to another. its human nature. its not wrong. but thas why you are in a com mitment, you discipline yourself. one may get attracted to numerous prospects and it okay. as long as you don't nurse the feeling and won't do something about it.borderline bet cheating and faithfulness. recognize the reality that you already have the person that can give you more than what you get for the cheapthrills of attraction.

I HOPE I AM NOT TOO LATE ANSWERING THIS .I ASSUME YOU KNOW THAT LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP DOES NOT REALLY WORK. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU DID NOT LOVE HIM, IT ONLY GOES TO SHOW THAT YOU ARE HUMAN.OR MAYBE , YOU REALLY DID NOT LOVE HIM, IT WAS JUST AN INFATUATION OR YOU FEEL YOU JUST GOT TO HAVE A BOYFRIEND. IN A RELATIONSHIP, YOU NEED TO COMMUNICATE INTELLECTUALLY. NOT JUST LIKES AND DISLIKES. IT IS A MATTER OF HOW TO MANGE YOUR DIFFERENCES BECAUSE IN REALITY WE ARE ALL VERY DIFFERENT FROM ONE ANOTHER.

Thanks for your comment. You are right. The problem is really not just whether we love them or not. I think about what you said and agree.

My boyfriend and I are about 2 hours apart and it can be hard and frustrating a lot of the time. We've been together 2 years now, so long distance relationships CAN succeed, given that you both want it bad enough and care about eachother enough.

Maybe you have fallen out of love for him. Or maybe you have just become used to not having him around. Maybe you are busy with a lot of other things that is why you don't miss him anymore. On the other hand, not missing him might not mean you don't love him anymore. I have been in a long-distance relationship and I've felt that, too. But when I learned he has another girl I was still hurt and then I realized just how much I missed him. When I was losing him, I finally realized that I still love him. Maybe, you're in that stage of your relationship, too. Think things over and over again.

I think you find something in this 100 miles away which is more close to what you wanted for yourself. I think in life if you miss something irrespective of the place is the person or the thing u miss the most..The day you will feel it you can sure of the attachment
