If there was no other option available, I suppose, but it's certainly not my preference. I much prefer to actually be physically with my partner.
I have high scores on both Quality Time and Physical Touch on the love languages quiz at www.5lovelanguages.com That means I need to spend a lot of time with my partner and have physical contact (not just sex, but things like cuddling and sleeping next to each other) in order to really feel good in a relationship.
Years ago, I tried a LDR twice - in one case it became LDR after we'd been together a few months because I had to move for my job and in the other case it was LDR from the beginning. Neither lasted a year. I think it's just too hard.
People with low scores on Quality Time and Physical Touch probably have a better chance of making it work, but it's not an ideal situation at all for someone like me.
Yes. When you're actually in love and happy with someone, then I don't see a reason why not to.
There'd be no point in replacing that person with someone you care less for, simply because you can't get physical as often.
Distance doesn't matter and won't last forever, since you'll move together at some point.
Also.. A long distance relationship actually requires tons of communication.. Since you can't meet, you'll have to talk which is the best way to get to know your partner.

When there are no physical memories together, and there is enough distance, both individuals will eventually find it hard to maintain such a connection; the moment another special someone enters their life. This is because there are no true memories, and it’s easier to avoid confused and/or aggressive exes when they are hundreds of kilometers away.
9/10, at least 1 person will get hurt; if not both.
Maintaining long distance friendships on the other hand is really good; make international connections while you’re young, and you will open thousands of doors for yourself.
