i think that long distance relationships work but it does depend on both partners involve. sometimes, when the feeling is really in the relationship, distance can never be a factor. true love indeed defies any obstacles. how long distance relationship work i think, mainly it's out of dedication and it works by true dedication of both people. how long? i have heard and seen relationships that have lasted forever and ended up in weddings, they are the ones that are sincere and they are the ones that are really into the relationship thing.

i guess long distance relationships do work...but sometimes like any other relationship the spark just fizzles out and yoy're left with nothing..but still then there are people whu've met through the internet or mabbe at some tourist place and their love or relationship has blossomed into more...one of my friends in in love with a guy who doesn't share the same city as her and their love has grown since last 8 months or so...though they know derz gonna be some limitations but still its better to be in one meaningful relatinship..however distance there mabbe than be in a relationship with someone you don't consider more than a fling..basically feelings matter..if they are true and both the guy and the gal are ready to commit..then i don;t think distances could do much harm!!!

hhmmm well its true that internet bring us closer to anyone and i belive that relation not cares for distances and i have a many examples in my society and if i can show i will. a relation depends on both of them who are makin the relation because there are many expample of those who are not so far but they dont have a strong relation that means distance is not the matter for relation...!

I dont think relationships such as through internet dont last unless: 1. Both have develop mutual understanding 2. Both are really searching 3. Both decide to meet 4. After seeing, they think they like each other... 5. and so on and so forth. In my case, when my husband was still just my boyfriend, we have long distance relationship. It did not fail because of mutual feelings and because he comes home every 6 months and when away, there were never communication gap.

The few long distance relationships I've seen have deteriorated. "Out of sight, out of mind" probably...But I do know that there are some couples who have maintained their relationship despite the distance. So, I would say, it's possible but very difficult to maintain. It's really different when your loved one is with you most of the time.

I feel that if the love is really genuine, long distance cant be a issue. On the other hand, staying away from each other, people realises the worth of the other one's presence in their life. They become more closer to each other. Their love for each other becomes intense. The 'want' for each other increases. But i also feel that there should be some commitment in long distance relationships or future planning, to meet up each other. I mean it should not be endless seperation. Each one should have a hope and target to meet up. If that is not there the relationship is bound to fade away.

I don't believe in long distance relationships. Yes, it works for some time, but there will come a time that you will get tired of it. Sure, it depends on the persons involved but at some point, it really doesn't work at all.
