• There was an ad for United Airlines some years back. The premise, which they claimed was a true story, was one of the two in this couple lived in LA, the other NYC. They took turns every weekend going to the others. They been together some time and even had a couple kids together. Why doesn't one just go and live where the other does? Claiming 'career is more important' is plain silly. Whatever job one could get in LA they surely could get in NYC. More to the point of your question. If the going on the dates preparation is more like preparing for a weekend trip or vacation and not just an evening date. Or, even, if the drive to see her, one way, lasts longer than the typical date it's just too far.
  • hi i am in a long-distance relationship which is still going and it has lasted 9 years! the last 2 and 1/2 years its been a long-distance marriage. I live in melbourne, australia and he lives in san francisco, california, usa. we have never lived together due to circumstances but we keep visiting each other. it is very difficult but we are both truly in love with each other. I hope this ends soon cos we do want to be living together.
  • 6-12 months, after a year you will even forget how to behave around that person. (of course see each other at least 4 times)
  • I do not think it ever gets 'ridiculous'. At times, it's a very lonely and depressing scenario. I've been with my s/o for a year, he is in the UK and I'm in America and immigration is difficult. I have been there 2 times, once for 3 months. And he is coming here for 3 months. I would go more...but plane tickets are so expensive =/
  • I've been in a long distance relationship sinced february of this year and I love my man very much. I live 2 hours away from him because I'm doing university and go to see him every chance I get and have only spent a month away from him at most. My feelings aren't going to chance because of the distance but I do wish I lived with him. It sucks being far away.
  • marriage but then again so is a normal realtionship haha oh no i be seeing negatives in my future =(
  • It has to depend entirely on the two people involved. If they believe it works, than who else counts?
  • if you never see him/her it dont metter if it is a mile or an boils down to how much you rely on physical interactions from sex, to seeing movies, or just being together. it is said that absence makes the heart fonder but with young people they seem to need that physical componenent to remain interested.
  • it's not rediculous for the two who are in love.
  • I'm in a long distance relationship at the moment. He lives in the UK and I live in Canada. It's only been a month and a bit and we still have three months to go. It's been the hardest thing I've ever done. But I think the key is trust and communication in some form or another everyday. Emails, webcam, letters (although they take forever!), and instant messaging are extremely useful. I miss him everyday. It's not easy, but when you love the person, it's worth it.
  • It's never ridiculous, just a tragedy =( I know a girl who has been in a LDR with her lover for 5 years...It's so painful to watch her and hear her when she is down. I've been in one for 1 year, and we see ourselves being together permanently this year...I told her as soon as i get my current debts paid, i will help her get that plane ticket =(
  • I did it for 7 years. The last two years of it we were engaged. I broke it off.
  • I am in a LDR, where my bf is in another country now. It is the hardest thing I have ever done and we had been together for 1 1/2 yr before he left. The saddest thing is that I miss him terribly everyday and knowing that after 6-12 months of not seeing him, we will start having our separate lives, and the relationship will start falling apart. Of course, communication is the key to succeed in LDR, just like all the people say, but time fades everything. I think that if it takes too long, then why be together? If love is so strong, then why one of them can't sacrify to move and be with another one? After all, it is back to the question whether he or she is the one for you to wait.
  • Been in one for almost two years now..has Been Very Hard at times.
  • the longest me and my guy go, he works out of town, is 28 days... thats the longest his company will work them, then he is usually home for about a week, sometimes longer then off agian, but I love him and thats all that matters :)
  • I don't think it ever gets ridiculous. I've been in one for a year and a half. I visited him last month for 2 weeks and it was really hard to say good bye. But we are back in the groove with online and webcam chatting. I'm going back to visit him for Christmas for 3 weeks. He lives in the UK and I in the US. I wish I could move out there, but I don't have any "qualified skills" or whatever to get a work visa. But I think one day the two of us will be together. If not there, here. He's lived in L.A. for a few months before.
  • untill they have sex
  • Mine lasted 5 years. On/off.
