Yes, but sooner or later one or both of them have to move. Long distance can't go on forever. Or at least that's a really bad idea. If they are in different countries then they have to deal with immigration laws, etc.
You can't just up and move to another country. I know a guy from Australia with a LDR in UK. He went to visit and got turned away at the airport in the UK. He was even from a commonwealth country and they wouldn't even let him enter. I know someone else who had his LDR get turned away at the airport entering Canada. Both cases were just a visit, not a move which is much harder to do.
The internet makes the world seem small, but it's not. It's freaking huge. Moving to the other side of the world is not to be taken lightly.
I think for it to really work long term, both people need to be realistic about it. They need to meet in person as soon as possible, and spend substantial time with each other. They need to discuss things in a realistic way. They need to make a plan. It's not something to drag on forever.
On the brighter side. I know people that it really worked for. I know multiple couples who started as LDR, and have now been married for 20-30 years or more.
Too believe that long distance relationships will work is beyond our opinions but the chemically they can work. But in most cases, they won't. It's way better to be in a relationship with someone that's close to you.
um... im not sure. it's really hard to say. i think it could work out, but there's gotta be a lot of effort, a lot of trust and a lot of communication put into it. if those are there, to put it bluntly, it will not work.
I have been with my boyfriend for almost two years and he lives in Florida and I live in TN. We saw eachother a few times and he has asked me to marry him everyday and he is looking for a ring. I love him dearly much and we are planning our lives together. I believe in long distance relationships!
I think it totally depends on what you mean by "relationship". To me a relationship is just a series of interactions, events, or emotions that you experience with another person. So, you could talk to someone or even feel love for someone who is thousands of miles away. But, I personally don't think that you could have a faithful relationship being a long ways away. Just my opinion!!!
