Recently just started dating someone who lives around 300 or so miles away. Things are going good, we speak on the phone and message each other a lot etc.
Things are good, we always speak about how we are looking forward to see each othet etc, have 2 hour conversations on phone etc. Starting to now develop some feelings for this girl and because its long distance not sure it could work in the long run?
We got introduced through a friend of ours and then she came to a party and met all my othet friends etc. One thing that gets to me already is that I see her comment on my friends status she looking forward to catching up with him etc, but she never writes on a status of mine. Not that I write many but it kinda feels like she doesn't want us to be public or anything... probably a bit weird and me overacting tbh.
Just dont want to get hurt, and were all going on a trip this weekend me and her and all my friends, dreading it a little bit in case she shys away from me. Totally the opposite of what she says in messages though, I just think im over reacting maybe but with the distance and me not just being able to see her when I want sucks :(
Well we went on our trip at the weekend and it was a great trip but we hardly spoke all weekend and on the Friday I decided to pull back and not bother as wasn't wasting my energy on this :(
Weird development though, ended up sleeping with a good friend on the trip, good idea or not? We have always got on well and sort of liked each other for a long time and it was absolutely amazing too! Had a great weekend with my friend instead in the end.

I used to not believe in long distance relationships. After all, a long distance relationship takes away the physical side of it, mostly.
However, now that I have a tiny bit of experience with it, I suppose I'll just tell you about me and you can decide.
My boyfriend and I started off 15 miles away from each other when we met. Normal. We saw each other often. Then, he moved and was about an hour drive away (don't remember the milage) and it was fine, we saw each other about twice a month, few days each visit. And then he moved even further, and now he's about 150 miles away, roughly 3 hour drive. We see each other about once a month, few days each visit. But our relationship is already tightly knit. We are close and strong enough. And in a few months, we're planning on moving in together. All is well. I just miss being able to touch him and see him, but we text daily and we talk on the phone weekly, and we always look forward to out next visit, and knowing we'll be moving in together soon keeps us going fine.1
