Oh, that's a good question.
I've done ldrs, and honestly it can feel like you're single sometimes since they're not physically there with you.
But for the right person? I think I'd be open to a ldr. As long as there's LOTS of communication, visits, and he can control his hormones and not cheat.
In the meantime, I'll just stay single- it's a lot easier and less drama, lol
I'm in one right now and its going beautiful <3
Although, I keep telling my close friends to never try an Ldr, because its difficult and I dont want them to go through what we have gone through and I know them. If they give me a confidence that they'll handle it all fine without breaking down cuz of their relationship, ill let them be in an LDR. LDR's are difficult, but if you both are strong enough, love each other a lot, trust each other completely and make efforts to make your relationship work, everything will go just fine.
Also, remember instead of looking for love, look for what's not love and you'll find what's love eventually.

If you're planning to do a long distance relationship, be prepared to face the absence of physical touch and being on top of your game in terms of communication. If you love someone enough, you'll do whatever you can make the relationship work, despite the long distance. Otherwise, it's much easier to save yourself the drama and unneeded stress by being single until you've found someone you can be with face to face for a relationship. Personally, I'd rather be single than in a long distance relationship because I'm someone who craves physical/emotional intimacy and enjoys being their significant other around the clock so the distance would eventually drive me insane from loneliness.
I just feel like long distance relationships really don't work out all that much because there's a lack of expression from both partners when anything can happen and be hidden behind a screen, a loss of physical/emotional connection that you experience in person with someone and/or adapting into a lifestyle where you're never sure what your significant other may be doing while you aren't talking with them. To some it's successful but to many, it's a prolonged relationship waiting to collapse upon the first person who flakes out.
If i were single then i'd either conciously be taking time out or in the market one way or another.
Long distance relationships aren't for me. I like the intimacy side of things too much. Not necassaily sex, just being able to have a hug or kiss. If regularily apart from SO for more than 3 or 4 weeks and that not be a temporary situation i think i'd move on.
