In your opinion can long distance relationships work?

  • It can work but from my own personal experience, the reason it worked was totally reliant on how the relationship started. If the relationship started in person, physically being together, and then distance becomes a new reality, then it can work so long as there is an agreed upon goal and plan to get back together in person.
    However, a long distance relationship that starts off with distance, depriving both people with the experience of actually being together in person, it is not likely it will work out

  • 90% of the time, no.

    Here's what it takes:

    A strong healthy relationship that was well established IN PERSON, for a least 6 months, before the long distance term begins, and for the term of long distance to be no longer than 24 months (military deployments sometimes last this long), unless there are frequent visits.

    Strictly online only relationships, where the two have never met in person, are not even real, in my opinion. You have to spend time together in person to truly get to know each other.

  • Yes it can as long as both partners are ready to put the same amount of efforts into the relationship, are completely honest, and super patient. Communication is also really important here just like any other relationship.
    Also it won't work unless they plan to meet in real life and work for it.

  • Yes. I mean there has to be some rules, like meeting every so often, and communication is super important. It should also be with someone you put your trust into, and somebody that you're patient with. There'll be road bumps but I'm sure you can make it work :)

  • I once have long distant relationship and it dont work. At first it was really beautyful... We were chatting all day, calling, calling via Skype... But after some time there was less and less things we can talk about. He started think that I am forgetting him but true was i dont have something to talk him. We started hassle. Our hassles was so big we broke up. So I dont think it can work in long time range.

  • I really want to say yes, but someone ends up wanting more. If the couple actively communicates then i don't see it failing.
    More often than not, it does fail though.

  • Works fine for me and we've been together for five years. Despite our distance we've found ways to make it work and there are no trust issues involved. Never has been.

  • Not long term. What's even the point? People who do this are kidding themselves about a better (or REAL) relationship closer to home. If it started local, it makes more sense, but still - are you going to spend your life like this?

  • No. Not at all. In an infinite time. Yes. However, time is limited. Long distance relationships are too selfish

  • I don't think that it could be working like a real relationship because i think that it is so important to touch and feel the Other person and then go building confiance and sincerity.
