Would you give a long distance relationship a try?

I got out of a relationship 2 months ago and decided to take a break from dating. One of my friends said she “didn’t want me to give up” so she shared my photo with one of her friends back in her home country which is 4,300 miles away. Her friend thought I was attractive and wanted me to message her.

I decided to give it a shot and we’ve been messaging on WhatsApp for a week. She’s a nice person but we have to use a translator to talk to each other which is kind of annoying. I tried to video call her, but she’s scared to do so because she shares a room with her 2 nephews and the house is loud at all times. She’s also a workaholic and works 3 jobs. Despite her busy schedule, she makes more time and effort to message me throughout the day than my ex did and even apologizes when she’s slow to reply.

Despite how attractive she is and the nice things she says through translated messages, I’m not convinced that this could work logistically. If you’ve ever been in a long distance relationship, did it work out?
