  • Nope, Ive tried the long distance thing twice now and it just does not work. There no way to get close enough to someone over the phone and what not in order to build a strong relationship. But hey I may just not be a very good at them. If it works for you more power to ya.
  • Nah. I don't agree with them, unless it is through an unavoidable circumstance such as military deployment. I think it is alot more rewarding to be able to spend time with someone in person.
  • You know what MY answer is.
  • nope no more than 20 miles thats my rule.
  • I don't think so. Nope.
  • no... I was in a long distnace relationship one time with someone who lived 14 hours away.. and it did not work.. granted I was in hs and he was a fr in college...
  • No, it's risky.
  • Me I never would try it. But I know a married couple who have and a couple who are "internet" boyfriend and girlfriend and it works for both these couples, it all depends on the people. :)
  • Depends on who it was. I mean, obviously I would work to get closer, but if she was worth the wait then definitely!
  • Some people can make it work. I couldn't. It was hard enough scraping up money to buy airline tickets (I'm in MO, she's in NC). But then, she was also a liar, wouldn't commit, and I'm also pretty damn sure she cheated as well.
  • No. If I was only looking for an online romance, it would be okay, but it just sounds so unfulfilling.
  • Well, if my boyfriend moved more than 10,000 miles away, I certainly would not break up with him. For him, I'd wait. Does that count?
  • Yes, i guess is worth the try.
  • Well my friend, it's going to be tough and I wish you my heartfelt best. At least nowadays you're not restricted to expensive phone calls and letters; you can IM video chat or whatever it's called which makes it more possible than a long distance relationship used to be. The more frequent the visits the better though that can be tough to afford and arrange; maybe you two can meet in the middle (5000 each) now and then? Hopefully, there will be an eventual migration for one or the other so that it will become a short distance relationship. Hope it works out for you both! --PT
  • Well...anything is possible Zack! :):) Is it worth it? You won't know unless you try!
  • I have to say its hard. If you have a strong foundation with the person it can work...but I wouldn't do it for more than a few years.
  • It would depend on how long the person was going to be away. If it was a permanent thing I probably would not do it.
  • I live in Korea because of my job and my wife lives in New Mexico. I KNOW that a long distance relationship will work.
  • You can make anything work , if it was ment to be then it will happen it depends on how much you both want it good luck !
  • Absolutley. after a couple thousand miles its all the same anywyas haha!
  • Tried it before and it can work... :-)
  • No. Too much work.
  • It would take a very very special person for me to try to commit to a relationship 10,000 miles away. I am 150 miles from the one I love, and right now there is a dispute over who will move where, and when that might happen, we love one another, but it's very hard.
  • Iam in one now, i love american woman and iam egyptian, and i want to tell you that i love her so much, we were created for each other, we have much in common, and our love is growing stronger and stronger everyday, and we will get married soon, this is the greatest thing that ever happened to me.
  • I was in a long distance relationship and eventually married the individual. I moved to the US to find myself unhappy. But that has to me nothing to do with the distance but with the preparation for marriage and how well we got to know each other. I guess if you check the facts and learn more about his/her childhood, see his friends, see him around his family, talk a lot with him/her it might have a chance. A long distance relationship needs trust and honesty. If you both have that in common I would say Go for it and take your time to assess all elements that makes a relationship work.
  • Ugh, I had a hard time when my boyfriend was a 45 minute DRIVE away. But I'm clingy like that. I know long distances work for LOTS of people.
  • i'm finding 119 to be hard to handle...that takes 2 hours to get there and 2 hours to get back...10,000 miles is pretty much unrealistic for me.
  • sorry, but i've already committed, so no turning back now ;) so that's a certain yes
  • yes of course for many reasons such as what if he had to serve in the army, or what if it was for a family emergency or for work. But if were for most of any other reasons only if we were fully dedicated and trusted eachother fully. If we didnt have enough trust it would only cause more problems and stress. Not worth it if theres no trust!
  • MY BOYFRIEND GOT DEPORTED!! AND IT IS REALLY HARD....WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER EVERYTHING IS FINE....BUT WHEN WE ARE APART...ITS A MESS
  • Definitely. I had a long distance relationship (he was in the US and I was in the UK) for 2 years. I have now been married to him for 12 years. It's easier than ever to keep in touch with email and IM and cheap phone rates. When we were dating phone calls were expensive and we wrote letter - yes actual letters on paper! It's worth a try. Only you know if you can handle it.
  • ah hell nah, i wouldnt waste my time...
  • im in a long distance realtionship my significant other is in the airforce, its really hard only have limited time can talk, seeing ecah other is even worse havent been together for a month now and cant see him again for another 2 months. its hard but i really want it to work i love him. But i tell u what it is mentally draining so many nights i go to bed crying casue missin him so much and other days i feel really depressed casue am so far away. i really hope it does work but is all the pain its casueing me mentally really worth it when look at the chances of actual long distance relationships working.
  • Out of the question. I'd be reluctant even to get a 200 mile long distance relationship a try.
  • yes, it can work my girlfriend lives in California and i am in Canada,,2000 miles away fom each other
  • Nope would have to buy a spaceship sorry!
  • No. I wouldn't ever again. I was in a long distance relationship only 400 miles away and even so, it was too hard so at 10,000 miles, I can only imagine the challenges with that. Both people have to be 100% committed to making it work and usually one half of the "team" isn't willing to do what it takes to stay close, or was not prepared in knowing what it takes to make a long distance relationship work. I also think there has to be some sort of future there too. Why would anyone consistently see someone by traveling back and forth, spend the money to travel, etc., knowing there is no way for them to be together on any permanent basis ? Even if it took a year or years, if you knew that eventually you would be together, at least you would see a light at the end of the travel tunnel and it would be worth the long distance thing and all the sacrifices you end up making. If you are just doing it to see someone, you would do better locally. It's nice to be able to see somoone face to face, have dinner with them, call them, stop over their place, etc. It's hard to communicate long distance too. It all depends upon what you want. Good Luck to you!
  • no there is no point, its like having a relationship with a computer, chances are you will never meet them, and who knows if they are truly in love with u
  • I'm in a long distance relationship right now. I live in the UK and he lives in America. Its kinda difficult, but i'm trying to keep it going. x
  • yes I would, it will work if you really want it to...
  • yes im in ireland and my bf in morocco. its working
  • I may have to. My boyfriend is in the military. He's currently less than 1k miles away. :)
  • You'll make it work. It'll be reallly hard. But you can do it if you truly love each other :) I'm in an LDR right now. ( I live in the UK - he's in Australia 0.o) We're hitting a rough patch right now.. because its been over 6 months without seeing each other.. but I'm sure it'll work itself out. Have faith!
