I met this girl through a friend who lives about 7 hours away from me. We started talking and really like each other. We've been texting and talking for 6-7 months and are now talking about possibly dating.
I'm driving down to see her next week for the first time, and she used to have a long distance relationship before so she's used to the traveling.
I see a lot of articles about how LDR's don't work, but are there ever exceptions? We haven't run out of things to talk about and we've been apart for that long so we're used to being apart and still liking each other and are sexually attracted to each other. She brought up that she wanted to be more than friends a few weeks ago.
Anyone have experience with this? Is it just a matter of effort?
(Again just to reiterate, we live 7 hrs from each other).

I know lots of people who end up in long distance relationships. Their success ultimately comes down to how much the couple 'wants' to be together. I guess I'm of the opinion that if you think there is any chance this girl might be worth dating to find out if she could be 'the one' for you, then you should give it a try. There are no guarantees in life. It might work, it might not. You don't know unless you try.
My opinion right now might be biased because the guy I was dating just told me that since I'm moving he's dating other girls because he said he would never do distance again. And I think if he cared enough/liked me enough, the distance wouldn't matter.0
