Most Helpful Girl
I will probably be entering one a somewhat long distance relationship soon. I've been dating my boyfriend for about four months now, and I really like him. I'm going to college, and he is still in high school. I think both people need to be on the same page. Both people need to really care about one another, and think the distance is worth it. Ultimately, if your partner doesn't want to put the effort in like you, there isn't a point. I think they are good though. They teach you how to be alone when need be, and as long as their is an eventual "we are over this long distance thing" date, I think it's fine, and a good learning experience if nothing else and it fails.

All my life, I didn't think I'd ever want a relationship with someone who lived more than an hour away.
Then I met my current girlfriend, living an 8+ hour drive away. Have been together for the better part of a year so far. It really does suck, and get us both down at times, but we both put in the effort to stay in touch and visit one another, and neither of us have ever been happier.
I bought a good webcam and a decent microphone to video chat with her.
She bought a gaming PC so we could game together.
We'll stream TV shows or movies together over Google Hangouts.
We still have a great time together, despite the distance.
