When my boyfriend and I first started dating, we lived 1.5 hours apart. It wasn't bad and we saw each other on the weekends fairly regularly. That lasted 8 months until I finished school and moved closer. I honestly think it was good we had the physical distance in the beginning because I would have been too overwhelmed with it otherwise, but that's just me.
However, it was not okay when he had to move 1000 miles away for grad school and I could never do that distance in a relationship again. Fortunately, that only lasted 9 months and we are currently living in the same area again.
