  • In my opinion it is possible, but only if every other factor of the relationship is right. It requires not being too clingy and also you'd have to have a shitload of trust, because you can never know what the other one is doing right now and you just have to trust them.

    I have lived in a long distance relationship for over a year and it was great. The reason because we broke up is that we became kind of distant with our feelings... We just didn't really love each other anymore, and we still are friends now.

    So, I guess that kind of relationship is not for everyone, but definetly possible if the two people are just the "perfect" match for each other. So, if it feels right: Just go for it :)

  • I think anything is possible if two people are dedicated enough to make it work. And are truly committed to each other. Distance doesn't have no boundaries if two people fully love each each other.

  • In most cases, it never works out. Without the physical action... something as simple as seeing each other in the flesh or just a simple touch... a distant relationship is doomed.

  • Depends on the two people. Early life like, pre- and teenlife mostly impossible cause people change at that time the most. Once you get older and realise what you REALLY want in life, a long-distant relationship with a person with a developed mind is way more than possible.

  • I lasted about a year without seeing each other but then it had to end because i felt like i was living an illusion of being in a relationship while in fact i wasn't and also i started thinking that are they really worth limting my self and not trying with others that live around me and just hoping that things will be alright with that person

  • Yeah it is possible, but it needs so much effort and a great love. Sometimes it causes you to cry and feel really alone so when this happens, you understand how strong your bond is, or how weak of course. Not everyone is capable of having a relationship like this but i always want to have a long distance relationship rather than straight. Because ldr's bond is way stronger than the straight relationship's bond. Especially when you live in different countries.

  • in my opinion, it's possible if you have a goal to reach together, something to look forward to. I'm in this case : with my long-distance girlfriend, we promised we will meet next summer, which really helps keeping the relationship fresh and genuine.

    Also, about the lack of physical contact, erotism is still possible, even through a long distance.

  • My boyfriend is in the Army. Not only does that mean that he is 900 miles away from me (away from home), but I have to go weeks at a time without even a word from him. He can't have his phone, and can only contact family, friends by letters in the mail. I normally get 3 letters a month and they all come in on the same day. About once every month, most of the time, he gets a phone call home. The last time I spoke over phone with him it was Thanksgiving (they gave the soldiers a call home). I got to talk to him for exactly 4 minutes and 46 seconds. Barely enough time to say a word. I couldn't even tell him I was headed in for an emergency surgery 4 days after that day.

    I say this not to rack up sympathy because no, I don't need it. And I say it not to get attention. I say it because if holding a relationship with him is possible -- holding a relationship with no boundaries but* distance, is very possible.

  • Yes, if you have already been in a strong relationship for a long while with them. And LDR's don't generally work out for very long periods of time.

  • Long distance relationships are possible. i met my husband online and we did long distance until he proposed. It was very hard but it was worth it. It does take a lot of trust, travel, and communication. My parents were on two opposite end of the country and they have been married for 27 years.

  • Yes it is possible. But it takes a lot of commitment, effort, trust, and love. If one is serious about the relationship, then it's completely worth it. If not, I wouldn't recommend it. I personally have been in a long distance relationship for a year now, and I'm holding up even though it's really painful to be apart from my SO. But it's definitely worth it in my situation because I'm engaged and very happy.
    You and the guy just got to figure out if you'll be able to stay strong, and be patient, and loyal to each other. If you can manage that, then hey go ahead.
    Good luck! :) x

  • There have been numerous amount of success stories about folks who made it through and live together now. On the contrary, there have been many cases where both parties get really hurt because it doesn't work out. I guess it depends on both sides, but only time will tell.

  • I have been in a long distance relationship for over a year. It is hard but he is worth it for me. We text and Skype almost every day (thought we do go weeks without Skype because of busy schedules). It is hard and there are many miss-communications. You have to be willing to work through it together. Also you guys have to talk about how you plan to close the distance. LDR's do not last forever. Are you willing to spend the money to travel and see them? Are you or him willing to move closer to the other? Away from family and friends? these are things you have to consider. But it is not impossible if you love each other and are willing to try and make it work.

  • No, I don't think so. It's hard to mantain a long distance relationship and the distance causes some problems.

  • They are possible, but there needs to be a meeting sooner rather than later. I know for me personally I start losing interest if I always feel alone. I need physical contact with someone if I'm going to be in a relationship with them.

  • Mmm hard but I would say deffinetly NO NO part of wanting a relationship is wanting attention, affection and precense of another because you feel alone. If its long distance and the person isn't around but very selsom , what's the point?
