  • I made mine work for the time it was long distance.
  • I know there are lots of people who can make it work. I tried it once, and it just didn't. for a long-distance relationship to work, BOTH people have to want it to work. both have to work hard to make it work. both need to want commitment. both need to be open and honest with each other. I was in a relationship with someone who didn't want commitment as much as they claimed, and also lied and cheated. when you are several hundred miles apart, you can't really keep them as "close" as you'd like. especially someone who doesn't try. kudos to those who can!
  • I have made mine last for about 10 months now. It's really stressful and quite difficult but it can be done. Luckily for me, it won't be long distance for much longer.
  • I cannot say how many but I know many couples have met on the Internet and have married. Also many couples who have had husbands work away for long periods of time and they are still happy.
  • I will be one of them. =) I will don't waste your time telling me different because I will not listen to you.
  • Count me in... I'm in a 3 years long distance relationship right now. It's tough but it's worth the wait. :)
  • I thought it worked, but, as I found out later, it really didn't. Being apart is a pretty big deficit in a relationship.
  • Well, me and my GF lived 300 miles (450KM) apart when we first got together but we had known each other for 5 years before hand and as soon as she finished uni she moved south to be with me.
  • roughly 350 in the history of planet earth - rough odds :)
  • Hmm, all my friends that had them never worked out. I guess it depends on how much you love the person, and if that person stays faithful to you. I feel bad right now, because I like this guy who is having a sort of long distance relationship with his girlfriend, but like is great to talk to.
  • I would imagine quite a few...
  • Yeah, it works!! Ive been in one for two months now! Its been great! Shes a little depressed....but shes getting better, and also shes moving from Va to Tucson AZ to be with me. Good thing is, i dont have to woory about her, great, amazing, beautiful, christian girl,
  • I can only speak for myself and I feel that it could work out. But it's very rare to be honest.
  • I haven't suceeded yet. But I know someone who has actually made it work for a long time and the distance was far! I think if someone wants something to work then they can manage dispite the distance, spend time travelling to see eachother. My current boyfriend lives like an hour away on the train, so we spend alot of time meeting at stations and such. but it proves he's up for making it work.
  • Mine works! My husband and I have been happily married for more than two years! He's a Marine, so he is away more than he's near. It's the hardest, most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. I don't know where I would be if I hadn't engrained the discipline necessary in my life. It's a daunting task, not for the faint of heart.
  • Mines working right now it depends on maturity, how strong the other persons feelings are towards you, and how great the outcome will be in the end.
  • My brother and his wife. My sister and her husband. etc
  • I've made mine work, now my gf lives like 30mins from me. The wait is worth it. I know some great ldr advice that I'm willing to share with you. Just ask
  • I'm currently surviving a military relationship. I get letters from my bf every other day and I send them to him every day. I don't ever hear from him by phone, or see him in person. It's been 56 days since I've talked to him (phone/person) last and it's definitely hard but we're surviving.
  • I'm not still in the relationship We did great when we were in the long distance relationship, but after he moved in with me.....it all went down hill
  • I made a long distance relationship work for a year with my husband when we were first dating.
  • Mine works. I am moving down to see her soon and we are going to get married!
  • My husband and I made our's work while we were dating for 2 years. It was hard at times, but it really did make us become best friends. Also we were still excited to see each other even 2 years into the relationship. It doesn't workk for everyone, but if you both have the same positive outlook to just enjoy each other while together it helps. I finally made the move and couldn't be happier.
  • I had one that lasted for five years before we got married (NY/Philly). The marriage lasted 17 years, so I guess you could say it worked, although her travelling too much with work is what ultimately ended it. Most of the marriage seemed like a long distance relationship.
  • I had a long distance relationship that worked for almost 3 years, and it was worth the commitment. We dated in high school, then in college (that was the distance part). It worked for a while, but eventually I started spending more time with my friends and focusing on other commitments at school, even on weekends. Our relationship had been on and off in the past, and I knew we needed to be on our own for a while. We're still friends today. Even though I miss him, I'm glad that now I can focus on the life I live here.
  • I have!! I would say its first and foremost cos we really like each other and spent 2 full on years together before her promotion took her to another city. During that time we really discovered the need for honesty in all those little things that are so easily brushed under the carpet. but we only worked that out the hard way by thinking we could get away with it!! Isn't always easy being on the receiving end of my partners honesty but I would say its the only thing that's kept our relationship alive and thriving.
  • i am a medic in the army and i have made my relationship work with my girlfriend for over a year now. it is hard there are trying times where at night all you want is to feel their touch, but when you do see them it makes it all worth it. you have to be committed, trusting, honest, and above all faithful. it is hard but not impossible.
  • I have, though it was quite difficult, but if you really love someone, things will work out:)
  • I did... We were long distance for 4 years, and now live together. The living together part is now the hardest... because it's a different dynamic. We're used to anticipating seeing each other and inevitably leaving each other again. So we're trying new ways to spark those feelings through other means.
  • i am going to give it a go. It has been one month away from my bf of 3 months. So far so good. I really do miss him and i feel like ppl take it for granted they get to see their bf/gf on a daily basis. I wish sooooo badly my bf and i could live in the same state. I try to see him once a month. Otherwise he will turn into just a voice over the phone.
  • Mine is working...
  • When my husband and I was still only dating, we had a long distance (about 500km) relationship for 5 years. It was difficult, but it worked, and we're happily married now.
  • I had a three year monogamous relationship with a girl more than 500 miles away. I would go to see her once a month. It wasn't easy but We were in love.
  • Mine is working and im very happy because i love him very much and plan to see him soon
  • I'am in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for a year now,sometimes it really gets hard,we argue over stupid things sometimes,maybe cause of the stress from being apart but one thing we both want is to be together.We love each other very much and very soon we will be close so it's all worth it:)
  • So far, so good.
  • im one of them. ive been with my bf for the last 2 years now nd luv him to bits id do nything just to be with him. hes my life i be nothing without him in it. and its realy hard being with somone so far away, its the first distance relationship ive bin in.. nd we had arguments some of the time but we got thrue it like he was with me.. so yes we made it work..
  • Everything Is fine with me so far and only time will tell.
  • i dont now if it works or not but it didnt work out for me but it has for a feew of my friends but they all say its very though
  • I am trying it again for the second time, but this time im not moving. He said he would if it came to that. I just seemed to forget how to go about things. So Ill make that an new question.
  • I agree that it can work if BOTH parties want it to. I liken it to any relationship, be it 1 mile away or 3,0000. I would encourage meeting and spending time together though. Once that is done and the chemistry has been validated, the sky is the limit. I was in a relationship for a very short period, but learned that I was more vested than he was. Soon the relationship began to hold very little value to him. As a result, he began to seek fault in the things that I said... even my very outlook on certain things. You can't make something work alone. It takes two... it also takes patience, endurance, love and a lot of positive energy from the both of you. It should be shared energy... not one-sided. If one-sided, the result will be one draining the other with resulted friction and a creation of distance that will far surpass any amount of road miles. I take my experience as a lesson learned and would welcome another relationship if it were presented. Not by the same individual mind you... unless I knew he was in it to win it.... Stay positive!
