Only if we had lived in the same city before, we know each other and we are in an established relationship but one of us have to move away for a while, school job, taking care of a relative or whatever reason, but at the end we'll move back together.
I don't think about relationships with men who live far away and we only meet online. They are chat buddies. I'm also a firm believer that everyone shows their best self online, so it's not real, basically, simply two avatars talking.0
I am engaged now, but when I was dating, my limit was dating someone within a range of 100 miles/160 km. That is the comfortable limit for driving to see her every weekend if we are dating exclusively. And my fiancee lived 80 miles/130 km away when we met. We dated for eight months, then she moved to be with me permanently. Wedding next April most likely.0
LDR are not relationships. They are friendships.
Whats really is the difference between a friendship and a relationship? What is traditionally done in one but not the other?
If you are LDR, not having sex, and just emotionally stimulating each other, you have a deep friendship.

I would not get into a long distance relationship as I know no one who has success with it.12
Doesn't anyone else get tired of all these Long-Distance Relationship questions? Can't people on this site come up with an original question now and then? Who thinks LDR should have its own category since those questions get asked so much? And around and around we go, where we stop, does anyone know?0
If you're going to travel 1 to 3 hours to go on a date, you're investing. A committed long distance relationship means that the person is more likely to commit in the long run.
This is why people who want flings, causal, friends with benefits & all that meaningless garbage look for close by people. It's convenient.0
NO, I did this years ago. I was with somebody who lived 1500 miles away. It was back when there was no email or video conferencing. We only saw each other 2 or 3 times a year. I remember being miserable the whole time. Down deep I knew the relationship was doomed to failure but once I started down that path I had to see it out to the end. I would never do this again.0
Well, I had the opportunity once and declined. I regret that, now. However, I still have hang ups about it. How can you really know the person with being with them in person? There's plenty of people out there that are just seeking to scam you.0
Yes as long as the goal to get together is mutual. I don't know what counts as a relationship starting long distance working or not working in comparison to a traditional relationship. If people say it doesn't work because you break up then you could make that same argument for traditional relationship. Two of my previous relationships started long distance, one out of my home country which took me to Sweden and lasted 4 years and another which took me to England and lasted 5 years.0
"Keep your enemies closely as possible and your romantic partner on another continent."
One of bad advises you should never follow. lol0
I voted yes, but I've tried it and it's VERY difficult. So unless you're incredibly strong, it doesn't usually work.10
No, I'm now opposed to long distance relationships. I prefer dating someone I can see often and spend time with. LDR's can be frustrating.0
What for? She sending me money? If not, she's completely useless to me. I don't need a pin pal... I need money and sex.0
Been there done that, most cases seem to end up with toxic behaviour going on and it's honestly just too hard.0
I don’t like the men in my town. They’re just…ew. So yes I would. Also, I plan to move out of state so that would be good for the both of us if I want to live with my future partner.0
At this age I don't do long distance relationships.0
I’d rather not because I like to see somebody I’m dating two or three times a week0
Yup. Current wife and I had a LDR for two years before we moved in together finally.0
tried once. and almost attempted it once more. i think im done with LDR's for good.0
I did when I was younger, with many.. Canada, New Zealand, my ex fiancee was from Florida.0
If that meant I didn't have to see them very often it might be a relief, actually.0
No. I don’t like long distance anymore.0
The answer is NO.0
I did Twice. I went to Egypt and Lived for Awhile and had Married him even out there. We are now just friends. I recently Broke up with a Guy from The UK. It was not Distance but just Me wanting a Break but it Ended up in a Break Up. It can Work but it Takes a lot of Effort on Both sides. xx
