We live in different towns and go to different schools, it takes roughly 20 minutes by car to get from mine to hers but we are both 16 so can't drive (in England) so I'd only be able to see her on the weekends, is there any point dating if we can only see eachother on weekends?
It depends on how much you care about the girl. If you truly don't see a relationship with her due to the distance then don't do it. If you can and she's the most awesome girl you have ever seen. Then you should give it a try.
I've been in a long distance relationship for almost 4 years now. To me it's worth the entire wait since he's the most amazing guy I have ever met.
Sure, as long as you communicate with them during the week. That was one reason that my last relationship failed to continue. No matter how much I tried to encourage him to talk to me during the week he always blamed our lack of communication on his "horrible multitasking skills" and when I'd ask him to join on Skype with my friends and I he wouldn't compromise and do so because he "didn't like how he looked on camera." He thought he looked ugly, but I didn't care. I'm not the biggest fan of how I look on camera, but I Skype anyway. It's not about looks, it's about being able to talk to my boyfriend. We maybe texted 1-3 times a week and when we did text, we'd text for like 5 seconds before he wouldn't respond back to me and the conversation would cease to exist.
As long as you guys communicate with each other during the week, all will be fine. You don't have to talk every single day, but check in on each other.
If you really really liked her there would be no question. If you think she's worth getting to see once a week then pursue her. I see my boyfriend every few weeks because of school and distance, and I think he's worth it.
I say that's a stupid question. You are 16 years old. Once a week is fine. Attended to your schoolwork. You speak as if you are a married couple which is ridiculous. The world is falling apart but you must see each other every day.
No. A week is long. I always dated people in my high school so like this I can see them everyday.
When I first started dating my husband (we were both 16) we only saw each other on the weekends. We lived an hour and twenty minutes from one another. If you want it bad enough, go for it. Distance shouldn't hold one back from his/her true feelings.
Yes! That's no distance at all SERIOUSLY. I've had relationships that spanned over 1000 miles and that's why we stopped but a 20 minute drive is nothing. At least you get to see your partner regularly versus never knowing when you both will be free for a week to visit or where you'll come up with all the travel fare. You shouldn't end the relationship for this reason.
How many times per week do you think you should be seeing a girlfriend? Obviously, the answer is different if you attend the same school, because then you see her every day. However, if you live in the same town and attend different schools, you talk on the phone (FaceTime, Skype) every day and get together for a date once per week.
It depends on your wants and values. If you really believe it's something you don't want in a relationship then there's no point remaining in that relationship. I wouldn't say that it's something everyone can't cope with. Ask @Mustachekitteh
