Have An Opinion?
Yes I've had two. The first was interesting for a few months but didn't work out. The second one did. We were long distance for one year. Then I moved to his country. A year later we married and we are still together 19 years later. Stayed in his country for 15, then eventually back to mine. But man, it is difficult and if you decide to stay together, it will always have some future trials, because of forever having to combine those two lives - sad families, lost friends, which family members to spend holidays with, culture differences, legal issues, insurance, government services, the long and gruelling immigration process (if changing countries), etc. It's also very expensive. All that stuff takes a lot of time to sort out and get approved for. But it's all worth it if you can find the one for you.
Meh, people lose friends anyway and for much stupider reasons. And if they're truly your friend then they will stay in contact by text, telephone, or Facebook.
They did for a while but it’s not the same relationship as being able to go hang out whenever you want. Evenyer all drifted apart.
Long distance relationships don't exist. They have these new things called airplanes, you can get to anywhere on the planet within 24 hrs. Now if your SO lives on another planet, you can call that a LDR, but if that's you, you might need a padded cell.
Yes, I would. I have had many, but they ended. I do try to ensure that they end up irl; otherwise, what's the point, right?
Yes, i guess you could say thats all that I've ever been in,?My first boyfriend i dated for 6 years and only saw him on weekends. The first 4 years he only lived 25 miles away but i was in HS. The remaining he lived 100 miles away.Every guy after thats been open relationships. And for the most part theyve traveled for buisness. Not really long distance but they could be gone anywhere from 2 weeks to months before seeing them again, i loved the space tbh, still do❤️👍
So, you prefer open relationships with distance? Is it cuz you value privacy or solitude?
I highly doubt it. Distance gets annoying quick, and I have enough issues trusting people who are actually close to me.
I used to but not anymore. It just never works unless you live relatively close by (close enough that you can affordably visit at least once a month). I made the mistake of doing it with girls on whole other continents.
May I ask to elaborate a little please?
@Guardian45 I live in Eastern Europe and had a thing with a girl from Australia once. Called it off within a week but that was because she was clingy. Then had another with someone from India and it lasted basically a year if I'm correct but things didn't work out because the distance was too big ad the promises that we'd have to keep for the other were not feasible. How could I promise that I'd move to some place far away, or come visit within a year if I didn't even know what I'd be doing for work or school within a month?
I would do long distance if both could work things out for me and the girl.
They don't work. You can never know what's going to happen until you hang around with one another for a good amount of time. Everything else is just a fantasy or a mind game.
Can't they be a temporary solution?
@Guardian45 They can only temporary if the people plan to meet
Of course. Natürlich.
Possibly if she was absolutely worth it.. but I haven't seen a girl worth that yet..
No, I can't see myself doing that. It's just an added impediment to a relationship working out.
Even if s/he was your dream partner?
I am open to the possibility if she is an exceptional girl and we have a way of making it happen in the long run.
I would as long as the person on the other end gave equal effort into it
Absolutely mandatory. Agreed!
Didn't work out. I went a couple months without contact and when I did re-establish since I was going to be in her country, she thought I just wanted a booty call.
Yup. That didn't work. But it doesn't mean it can't with someone else. I know a couple had one, got married and have a child.
Tough questionI never experience long distanceAs long we get to meet one day, then why not
Tried it before and you have to have a plan to eventually be together or it will never work.
Never tried even it looks like dead end
Well as i said i never tried personally but i saw a lot betraying cuz of long distance and didn't see they partner in weeks
Obviously, those were bad, but I have a couple of friends who did it and succeeded!
@Guardian45 U sound like my ex boyfriend so much loool
Haha he stalking u prob 😋 what hapnd
My girlfriend lives a few states away
I could do it, but it would be really difficult
How would it be difficult?
Because the lack of physical closeness is always a test of the relationship
True. Especially in the beginning. I feel like after I meet her for the first time I will be much more reassured knowing she has at least had the chance to see me in person and see that I am real.
Yes. But then it will be hard for different reasons. You will want to be physically near her, but you can't be
Well, I would move, then. No need to keep it long distance once you know that they're the one. You don't have to move in together, either; you can just get your own place that's in their city.
And the in between stage? You are dating, but don't know if they are the one yet?
Well, to a certain extent, it is an educated guess. But one can feel pretty strongly that they are correct. If you guess wrong, then you can always just stay in that city or move elsewhere. I think it's worth the risk, though. The payoff is finding the love of your life and getting to marry her.
Eventually, yes. But not initially
Eventually it will be worth it. Often not in the beginning of the relationship though
Well, each moment you spend together is worth it, is it not?
Not likely. What would be the point?
@Guardian45 small possibility i guess. I look at long relationships as relationships on paper only. Like the person you knew in school who had a BF/GF that lived in another town and you never got to see. Lol
would and did for 3 years
May I ask what happened?
May I ask why not?
@Guardian45 biggest waste of time ever and something virgins would do in my book
it wouldn't work out, most never do
You ever used a chastity belt on a MSN
What’s msn? I don’t own a chastity belt broooo😂
I think he's referring to the internet, but it ain't clear. I have no idea what the chastity belt is about. LOL!
Conclusion: another Anonymous Troll
@Guardian45 you don’t want to know what a chastity belt is, trust me😂😂
I will have to.
May I ask why?
Cuz long distance doesn’t workout. You never know what they’re up to and it’s easier for them to not tell you things.
