Two people who say they love each other, talk every day, live 10 hours from each other, tag each other in funny posts on the internet, hook up and text other people, only see one another twice a year for two weeks at a time, both in first year of college and involved in fraternities/sororites. will this last, or become anything serious?

Well its not serious now why would it be later? From the sound of it your just long distance friends with benefits. Their is no romance in this and from what your saying no commitment so if their is no commitment now their is not going to be commitment later. Plus when you have sex it releases oxytocin in the brain which creates emotional bonds ie the one you have sex with is going to be closer to you emotionally then some one who isn't and the greater your proximity the more your going to attach to that guy. In addition how in any way would this be considered a relationship as you are essentially functioning as if you where single the only difference is what? You have sex with him once or twice a year? In short no everything about this says that it won't last because it doesn't actually exist to begin with (relationship wise).0

I don't believe it's impossible to make them work, but it is rare that they work out. They are very challenging and extra effort needs to be put into the relationship in order for it to survive. Plus, sacrifices from both people need to be made.
Most people who enter into a long-distance relationship tend to build an illusion of what the person is like and what their life could be like together. Then when they do meet up, their illusion is shattered because they discover the person is not the person who they thought they were.
Love isn't measured by distance , so if two people truly love each other then they will "climb mountains " and "swim oceans " to be together. They will find a way to be together... someday. So it all depends on the strength of their love for each other , and how badly they want to make it work.
Lots of people have successful long-distance relationships , but there's also lots of people who haven't managed to be able to make it work. It takes an emotionally strong person to make it work, because trust issues and insecurities start to develop, which drives them apart. They start feeling envious of people who get to spend time with them.. .. in reality.
I don't believe it could ever work out if the relationship is an "open" relationship1
