  • Setting a concrete goal on meeting each other physically in a certain time period and setting a final objective on living together, is what motivates both parties to make things work out.

    It is that we envisage the fruitful result give us hope and faith to wait for the long struggle.

  • only people over the age of 45 who've had 10yr plus relationships can answer.
    unfortunately, there are non out here... lol:)!

    By observation: Trust, laugh together or find humor, communication is good, when stressed they go towards each other or respect each other, they meet each others love needs, sex works good enough, compatible in environment (again low stress), high fun. willing to work on challenges. they work on themselves and keep growing, ideally together.

  • My answer might be different but yes MONEY. You need to visit each other at least a few times before closing the distance and decide to migrate.

  • Simply said, communication.
    Talking/writing and listening/reading a lot.
    It's my fourth day in the Czech Republic and I'm constantly chatting with my girlfriend on WhatsApp, and video calls every evening.

  • For me I sent her cards in the mail all the time. I would send her care packages by way of UPS little gifts, presents with food things to keep her entertained. I Also sent her jewelry and interesting items for holidays. We talked on the phone every day hours at a time we fell asleep on the phone and we watch videos together on the phone and we lasted a very long time we traveld the world together as well

  • There is only one word for it to be successful. You must be both mature enough to be able to keep it successful. To understand the conditions of your relationship and the what it requires for you guys to be together.

      @EmmaMary Time is going quicker every day. It seems only yesterday they were celebrating 1 year. Now it is nearly 2. No sign of anything going wrong! All good so far! XX

      Wanting it to work is the most important part. If you both stick to it, it works good. We know we will be together eventually.

  • This website sums it up very well.

  • The only long distance relationship I ever had was with my fiancé when one of us was out of town or country. We didn’t really have the social media we have today, so email and letters were about the only way we could correspond

  • My secret is to keep communication going and long distance
    i would Skype with the girl but i would get to know more before
    Skyping cause she could be anyone on the other end i don't
    think pictures is sufficient cause they could be anyone.

  • I personally never heard of one.
