  • LDR are too challenging and difficult to maintain. It's not impossible to make them work ,
    but it's rare they survive the distance

    The ultimate goal of a LDR is to end the distance by meeting up in person. Most people can't do that. It's pointless calling it a relationship if two people can't spend quality time in together in real life

    Personally, I couldn't be happy in a LDR. I'm too affectionate. I love giving and receiving affection. The base of a LDR is online communication. That's not enough to maintain a lasting healthy relationship

    You can't know a person's true character just by chatting with them online. You need to see them in real life situations and circumstances , over a period of time, before you can determine their try character. When communication is online you only really know them in a superficial way

    An online relationship can't be compared to a relationship in real life. Trust issues and insecurities eventually develop due to their partner being so out of reach. They start to feel envious of people of the opposite sex who can spend time with their partner in real life. When all they have is online communication

    Some people are happy to settle for a LDR, but I couldn't. I want to be able to see my boyfriend in person. Feel him, touch him and be close to him.

  • In my opinion, I don't trust LDR's. In terms of trust and loyalty, they are hard to maintain. It might lead to misunderstandings, and we don't know what's in the other person's backpack. In terms of sex, LDR's have sexual frustration, which MIGHT lead to a person involuntarily cheat on the other, without the other even knowing. Also, communication issues might happen depending on the person's life occurrences, which leads back to misunderstandings and unnecessary trust issues.

  • Im currently in ldr for 7 months now, and everything is goin well. We had a lot of misunderstandings and trust issues are always there, so communication is vital in ldr. He'll visit me on November, and im so excited and anxious at the same time.

  • I don't see anything wrong with a LDR if they plan on moving in together or move closer together in the future. Other than that I don't think it could work, smells like desperation to me that their not good enough and can't get anyone else in the area.

  • It is ok.. can work if love is strong ,, and if you believe that this person suits your personality,, been one for 2 years,, but we met about 5 times throughout ,, make sure to meet from time to time, and make some memories to push you a little bit

  • Ok lemme debunk some myths:

    1) Ldrs don't work. Well, no relationship works if you aren't committed and faithful. Stop blaming the distance, I bet you would break up for other reasons if you were close.
    2) Relationships are impossible without physical intimacy. Uhh married couples where the husband or wife works abroad, they are basically in a long distance relationship.

    Never let the distance be an issue for you. For further talk pm me. :)

  • They are difficult but possible to work. All my relationships had somesort of long distance relationship componet. What is import is that you guys trust each other, communicate honestly, and see each other in person at some point.

  • Was in a LDR for a while, put a lot of strain on the relationship and led to a lot of silly fights. Know friends in similar situations, two of which also did long distance, both of them said it was very very hard and they both ended up fighting with their SO a lot more. But it's worth it if you want to be with this person.

  • I'm in a LDR right now and it's hard sometimes, but we do try to make it work. You need to talk about your problems though, try to understand the other person.

  • It's all the burden of being in a relationship with none of the good stuff.

    It seems like a monumental time waste for young people in their prime dating years.

    • Well, I have made multiple mistakes but, Not every LDR has mistakes.
      I don't really want to say what mistakes.

  • Tried once and never tries it again.
    I don't know what's going on out there metal. If u r lucky, then would be a success. Keep going and don't keep it in mind that what we said. Its its going on fine, then u just continue it.
    If u r trying to find out a love via online, then pls don't go for it. Its just a waste of time.

  • They only work if you were together for a long time and developed a lot of trust prior to being at distance.
    If you met the girl on vacation and only see her once a year, i dont think it will work out, or thatits healthy.
    Burden of a relationship without the benefits
