I know that they say the heart will grow fonder, but seriously? I know many people who have been in long distance relationships which lasted for years. I just don't see how talking over the phone or skyping can fulfil ones needs in a relationship? You can hug over the phone, or kiss. Can't share memories that will make you laugh together. Wouldn't it be easier finding someone who can actually be around? I'm not against it. I just don't see how it could possibly work out.

My boyfriend of 3 years moved to another state for school last week. We're long distance right now and it sucks. I'm not liking it. Last year, I was away at school but was only an hour away and we saw each other a lot (he'd drive up or I'd drive down) and it was hard, but a TON easier than right now.
Now we're 6 hours apart. If I can get the money, I'm driving to visit him in October. When he helped me move to school (I moved in on Thursday and he moved in on Sunday) he told me if in the first two weeks, it was too hard, he'd drive to see me. I'm bouncing off the walls missing him like crazy. But he's having a blast with his welcome week and meeting new friends and so I don't want to take him away from that for my own selfish reasons.
Gotta be honest, it's driving me nuts. We practically lived together all summer, he'd be at my house when I'd wake up, and we'd hang out until I'd go to work at night and then he'd come visit me at work :p
Do I think we can make it work? Absolutely. Do I think it'll be easy and tearless? Nope! Not a chance.
I'd do a LDR because I am doing one. Am I happy about it? No way. Is it a necessary step right now? Yes.
I'm secretly considering telling him he NEEDS to drive up and see me next weekend just so I can see him... is that bad? :p0
