  • It may actually work, thanks to all kind of the modern communication tools. However, what working on 3000 miles distance, not always works on 3 feet distance.
  • it can if both sides are very committed, but it will take a lot of effort and hard work
  • Distance can put a major strain on a relationship but if it is someone who you truly love and cherish then the distance might not be so bad. If this is someone you know from real life who used to live by you and now has moved away then at some point you will have to make a choice as to who will move to be near the other. If however this is someone you have met online and have never really met face to face I would suggest you each take a few short trips and spend some quality time together getting to know each other on a face to face basis before wither of you rushes into moving to be with the other. Anyone can be anything they want to be online that is the one big danger of the internet. You won't know for sure if this person is really who they portray themselves to be online until you have spent a good deal of quality face to face time with them first. The worst thing either of you can do is rush into moving near the other and find out in the end that it's not going to work out. Then one of you is stuck in a strange place without anyone you know.
  • Hell no!!!! That's trouble and disappointment just waiting to happen.
  • No and no
  • it can work - if you both want to make it work. But there are difficulties! Firstly, get yourself an international phone card - much cheaper than the normal phone service. Second, get yourself a big bucket of trust! You are going to need it. But most of all, accept that you can never go out for a meal together, hold hands in the supermarket, or any of those little things we take for granted. However, you will also never have to pick up their underwear - so there are compensations! And, check your passport is valid, and be prepared to spend time in airports. Good luck!
  • YES IT CAN BUT ITS VERY DIFFICULT TO BE IN A LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP, IM IN ONE NOW, I BEEN IN ONE FOR 4 YEARS NOW, HE LIVES 1000 MILES AWAY FROM ME AND IT SUCKS REALLY BAD. IT CAN WORK IF YA'LL BOTH HAVE FAITH AND DON'T CHEAT, I KNOW IT CAN WORK IF YOU LOVE EACH ORHER, BUT YA'LL NEED TO DISCUSS WHAT IS GONNA HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE, LIKE IF HE IS GONNA MOVE WHERE YOU ARE AT OR IF YOU ARE GONNA MOVE THERE IF THINGS GET REALLY SERIOUS.
  • You'll just both have to work very hard at it. If its meant to be it will be.
  • It COULD but there is no way I could do it. It would require taking the time to make sure you stay in contact, planning visits, etc.
  • A teleporter would help. +
  • it would be pretty expensive, and pretty unlikely. however, if money is not an object, and it is a strong relationship, i don't see why not. I know of one in particular that is about 1800 miles between them, and theyve been solid for 2 years, up until one of them was laid off, then the problems started. Because technology can only do so much, it cannot replace, being there.
  • Wow.Top answer seems to just have a downer on life.Must only of ever looked outside the hose into the street for romance.Oh not to mention a tite wad lol
  • It can work with two understanding individuals. You would have to be able to communicate honestly about the difficulties of being so far away from each other.
  • You could move closer to him.
  • If you like torture go for it. Sorry, to say but, it is next to impossiable.
  • It's very possible. It just depends on the two people involved whether or not it is worth it. How could you make it work? Lots of trust.
  • Would not work for me. I need constant supervision.
  • Well ; the chances of a relationship that far apart succeeding is very SLIM .... Now; if you all could visit each other at least every week to two weeks ..talk on the phone and send e-mails every other day etc ... daily .... it MIGHT stand a small chance ... BUT; being so far apart ; and being around other people, socializing with different people ... I would not bet on it working .
  • Look at it this way. It's not only the other person who lives 3000 miles away (Britain or Ireland, I guess). You are also 3000 miles away from him. Does he have apprehensions similar to yours? Although you're 3000 miles apart, can you fully trust each other? That's what it ultimately boils down to. If you've been faithful to him during your separation, and he to you, and you're both in continuous touch, there's more than a fair chance things will work out happily for both of you. The key phrase in your question is "make it work". All I can say is where there's a will, ... And 3000 miles is just a 7-hour flight away, so you can always plan to snuggle up together twice a year. Has this not worked out?
  • Yes it will as long as there is Comunication & Trust it will. My GF lives 2000 miles away from me & so far everything is going wonderful.
  • love , care , lots n lots of patience , suprises, and the most faith can work any kind of relationship work no matter what the distance is :)
  • Keep in touch by email phone calls and last the trust in each other.
  • I'm trying to do it from 5000 miles away. I'm in the US and she is in Europe. I spent three weeks with her over there in July. We talk and see each other just about every day on Skype. You just have to be patient and see where things lead.
  • No way this will work. Sorry to tell you this, but the miles will lead to cheating, since the other person will not know. Happens all the time. If at all possible and you truly love this person, its best to move much closer, no matter what it takes.
  • aka curly girl? whats up with that. Will your crown still fit? Or will it actuate the positive lol

  • It can work, but it takes a lot of work on both ends. Trust is a major thing when it comes to long distance relationships. They have to learn to trust each other, even though they're not near. My boyfriend lives in Scotland, I here in the US (3878 miles according to www.timeanddate.com). It's difficult a lot of times, those nights when all I want to do is lie down next to him and fall asleep in his arms, or when I want throw my arms around him and kiss his lips. But I trust him, and he me. We talk every single day. Yahoo voice and cam has helped a lot. We email everyday and if one can't get to a computer, we text on the phone (which can get spendy. All in all, yes it can work.
  • Will never happen. Too much distance and opportunity for one or the other to cheat. Who would know? This is the problem.
  • Where there is a will there is a way :-)
  • Lots of people have mentioned the trust issue but I'd like to add that a 3000 mile distance doesn't necessarily mean you need any more trust. Someone who lives in the same place as you, even in the same house, can cheat on you, so I would consider the trust/mileage business almost irrelevant. As long as you're in constant contact, by phone, text, email or whatever, you'll be in his mind and that's what's important I think. Just an opinion from my own experience.
  • I could make it work because my penis is 3000 miles long.
