People tend to think long-distance relationships are one of the hardest possible ways of loving someone. I didn’t know what this implied, but my heart was saying wholeheartedly yes as I was confident the differences weren’t stronger than our love. However, I knew this serenity would come and go; frustration could kick in eventually and challenge us. I’m not suggesting oppressing worries (that may be reasonable in unhealthy relationships), but I’d like to encourage you to choose a positive outlook when it’s healthy, instead of blocking yourself with limiting thoughts or labels.
In a long-distance relationship it may even take more time to realize the other one is just as human as you. As long as you respect and love your partner, you will always find a way to deal mindfully with conflict and disagreement.
Even if you see your loved one often, you still need to consciously choose to spend quality time together. I’ve learned that physical distance does not equal emotional distance, and there is so much to explore.
These are just a few ways to find strength and happiness in a committed long-distance relationship.
About Criola Criola loves her friends, inspirational blogs, novels and fashion, dance, coffee and croissants—and she’s deeply in love with her boyfriend who lives on the other side of the world. I love that Naea I’m so happy for you guys and I do wish the same ending for me and my boy. He is the only one who made me feel loved and I now he will always do but I am so scared and getting impatient of when is the right time that we meet.
Long distance relationships take a lot of energy and they can fuel you with just as much love.
We’ve only been dating for 7 months but we love planning out our future and all that and we talk about it all the time. I know, it will be challenging but you better keep walking and building a path rather than thinking and worrying and not doing anything about the situation.
I just entered into a relationship (2 weeks ago) with a guy that I haven’t met yet in person. So, from my experience I know how challenging and uncomfortable it can be, and you may loose a great deal of the relationship you used to had with your family – doubts in your decision can be so hurtful.
But assuming you’re asking me about long-distance relationships, Charoa, yeah, I’ve got a few ideas.
My opinion: if there is an option between dating someone in close proximity versus someone long distance, always, always go with the person in close proximity. That’s a bloody rant, but seeing all the comments with people who could stick to it and work it through the distance made me realize that I was just never good enough for her. We definitely have some really great conversations at this point and seem like we both know where we are, who we are and what we want out of life.
If you’re looking to answer your most pressing dating and relationship question, my blog is like Google for your love life! I live in one: As a young European, I am deeply in love with my African boyfriend who pursues his career in Asia. After one year—when I had already returned to my home country—he approached me again, explaining how wrong he was, and asking for a second chance. Around one year and two visits later, the downsides of the distance did indeed knock me off. We need to keep putting our heads up high and take the distance as our current external state that shapes us but will change eventually. But I always wished for a wonderful man with a beautiful character who loves me for who I am. It is what it is, and we can only do our best today in loving each other, and work toward a life together with patience and faith. My husband and I spent the first three years of our relationship across the Atlantic from one another. I am very happy for you and your love, you (as well as the other success stories commented below) give me hope. I always keep on having doubts about our relationship especially when I feel that he is cold. I felt like I lost hope and cried the whole week since we both know he is the only one who is capable of traveling here to my country and if he thinks like that then it means he is not willing to come here and there really is no way for us to meet in real life . Sometimes, it surely takes a while of adjusting to a long-distance, and developing the energy needed for it.
Apparently, he had fallen in love with this woman, who, in turn, asked him to send her $2000 so she could move to the United States.
I like her attitude and it seems that she and her honey are being very pragmatic which is very essential as some people move WAY too fast and are so invested in someone they barely even really know!
If you do long distance, before becoming too emotionally invested, make sure you two can meet in a reasonable time frame (as per the two people). At this point in time, our differences seemed to be too wide to merge them into a happy, long-lasting life together.
If you take on challenges together, it’s easier to handle the physical distance, and you get closer and surely learn a lot about each other. However, I’m getting exhausted from always having to be the one who is strong or the one who believes in us.
I am now at the point where I think I never can tell… and it drives me crazy too (apart from not knowing if my bf will ever be able to come to EU).
Sometimes a man’s willingness to throw himself into a long-distance relationship means that he doesn’t have much of a life worth preserving at home.
If you’re in a long distance relationship, he is spending time with you whenever your schedules allow. During those two years, he went through hardships (I know) that I will never be able to relate to, but so did I. I told them about my relationship straight-head onwards, talked to them, explained them many times how happy I am with my sweetheart, and that I won’t give up on us just because our bond throws them out of their comfort zone. It i hard but worth it, we know that eventually one of us will have to move so we can be together but we are also being sensible and taking it slowly to ensure that were both ready when it happens. She warned me at the beginning of our relationship that she want one to express feelings and say or do lovey dovey types of things so I knew what I was getting into ahead of time. I also always tried to show my parents that I wanted an open, and honest communication with them, and that this is why I made them know about my relationship. Honesty is the most important thing in a long term relationship, without it , it will not work. Well, long story short we started corresponding and I did delete my profile as I had originally intended.
He doesn’t have stellar communication skills (quiet shy and according to him his ex GF barely ever wanted to talk when he would go back to his country) and he never did the online long distance thing before so it was hard for him to comprehend if you cannot meet regularly in person, SKYPE and the phone are the only means of connecting. This third year he is in Europe (I can’t say where because that would really narrow it down) and although miles-wise we are closer (6000 instead of 8000), relationship-wise he is farther away than ever. However, he’s only been to California a couple times and sometimes I feel like its better to visit him because he has more privacy at his 3 story house than my 1 story house.


I have to say that all trust, misunderstanding problems come if you don't know how to communicate properly. We love, we work, we play, and we face challenges head-on as that is how we learned that they are best overcome. I really want a future with this woman because she is the most amazing person I have ever.met and I fall in love with her more everyday. I told her I had feelings for her and she admitted there were moments when she had some, but she didn’t want a long distance relationship. I think long distance relationships do not work, especially if the couple stays apart for long periods of time. I know it’s too early but we are talking about our future together like marriage or having kids. Long distance relationships are hard when you love someone so much, but true love knows no distance.
Suddenly, you find yourself out of love with your partner or vice versa.I don't think it does. Not everyone understands it, they doubt us but we don’t let that stop us because we know how what we share is as real as it gets. I know it is tough and we have had out ups and downs too but both of us had put the effort in making this relationship work out. For all you who are in a long distance online relationship, fight for love , never give up. Don’t let the distance define your relationship if your hearts are pure the love needs no help in defining what you have. If you want to know that youВґre online love is not a fake, test him, through camera, meeting other family members, knowing their daily routines, in other words be sherlock homes. I don’t let anyone discourage me about our relationship though I know they have a point. We decided to do the long distance thing, and did it for a few years, then I moved up to him, and a year after that we got married!It is worth it, so long as the person you are keeping the relationship with is worth it.
My answer is "no." I'm reading a lot of the posts here and people are saying they've had long distance relationships for six months or a year or for years. Seeing someone every once in awhile or once a month and talking on the phone is not a relationship!
Trust is the main thing, if you can't trust the other person to walk away from temptation I think it would be very hardm but as long as you believe in them it will work.
We'd somehow managed to sustain the original 'three month' honeymoon phase of the relationship for a year. The time we had was precious so everything was always wonderful as long as our time was few and far between.In reality, the phone bills and travel expenses were enormous, and huge amounts of time were spent planning our time together.
True love can survive anything and everything that comes your way good or bad.Yes, The do work only if both of you want it to work.
The truth is that men and women need each other and love grows with time and you need to spend time together in order for a real relationship to work.
We truly love each other and the long distance has made our relationship stronger and has made us know more about each other since we had to communicate well and work out our problems. True love can survive everything.Yes they can work, but you have to invest time and want it to work. A guy thinks about sex every two minutes, how do you think that any male species will stay faithful for longer than a month. I've been with my fiance for almost three years (friends before we got together) so we've known each other for six long years.
Some days you'll be in so much heartache from missing him you wont be able to stand it, but, in the end, when he comes home to visit me and I see that smiling Cheshire cat grin of his, and he wraps his arms around me & tells me how much he's missed me. Two things you have to remember are that trust and honesty are the foundation blocks for any relationship, but especially a long distance one. Listen to your heart, it never lies to you.In a long distance relationship you sacrifice time from your social life to talk to your partner on the phone or the net. While I hate that we're so far apart over the summer, the visits and knowing that I have him to come back to when I go to school make it completely worth it! If you like each other as much as you think that you do then the relationship will work all it needs is commitment and if you both agree to this then you can climb any mountain.Long distance relationship needs a lot of sacrifices. No matter how much you love each other and willing to work the relationship, if one of you cannot sacrifice and take the risk to be with the other person and then it will not work. Love that is so true and real cannot survive in a long distance relationship without future plans to be together.
It is worth a wait for a long distance relationship, but you have to be realistic enough on how long are you willing to wait for you to be together.I truly believe in my heart that it can and will. The love is very strong, the trust is the main source that gets us through the lonely and depressing times. We talk tjree or four times a day on the phone and we go to bed at night saying bye and "I love you". If you believe in your heart and what it is saying, you will never doubt your relationship. It doesn't matter how far apart you are (it is just a bigger challenge) as long as you love, trust and honesty build your foundation to the relationship. If two high school students can make this distance last, I think those with a true heart can too.I most definitely know for a fact that a long distance relationship can work but can only work if the both of you work at it. I know this because my boyfriend and I have been going out for seven months now I know that's not such a long time but it really is. I mean you get impatient because you see other couples holding hands and in love and yet you have to wait to enjoy the simple little things that make up a relationship. I would say that trust and patience is the most important parts of a long distance relationship.Most definitely! As long as both you and your partner are willing to make the sacrifices and commitment involving a long distance relationship. There are several factors that take part in a "long-distance love relationship" I'm no expert but I am in one.
We all know that communication; understanding, compromise, trust, faith, honesty and most of all a lot of patience are the key. Whether you are two hours or thousands of miles away, there's a reason why you are in this long distance relationship. If you believe in love, believe in yourself and respect who you are and the other person; things will work out as planned. If you communicate well enough on the phone or email, then both should be able to dedicate the relationship to openness, trust and honesty. What I mean by this is, when you know that your significant other is suffering or in pain, water it with love and Help it can grow once again.
Even though it kills me to be so far away from him I know we love each other and we can make it work if we try our hard enough.
It'll seem like hell to start, but in the end, sooner or later you'll realize how much stronger you are.
I'll be in Japan for another one and half years, you just have to have the right mindset for it.Yes long distance relationships can work.


If you want it to work it can happen for you!Long distance relationships can definitely work out if you put your heart in to it, there's really no stopping what wonders it will bring you in the future. I sensed a strong connection and visited him eventually; it was the best day of my entire life and even though under some circumstances it may hurt to have to visit and then go back home you know in your mind and heart how much more special it will feel the next time you run into each others arms. Just keep in close touch; send sweet gifts that remind them how much you love them and appreciate them for everything they are and what they do for you. Wanting to take part in this decision of trying out a long distance relationship and as long as you are both willing, I say it's a go.I have had a long distance relationship and believe me, it was a very long distance.
I swear it can work if you're both committed to making it work and jumping the obstacles that come your way.A long-distance relationship can work. I am so happy and glad I chose to go through the long distance relationship while we had too instead of ending it. If you do not truly both love each other, it will be hard and not worth it.Yes, it can work, but it takes commitment.
If it's just someone you met and you don't really know each other that well, and there's not much attraction it is not worth getting hurt over, but if you've known each other for awhile, know that you really like (or even love) one another, then I'd say go for it.I'm currently involved in my own long distance relationship. While it isn't official yet, we know we want to spend the rest of our lives together, once I'm out of college. It's a mistake to try to compensate for the distance by constantly telling her you love and miss her. People change over time, and if you didn't know them well to begin with, you might really have some adjusting in order to fall in love with the person you thought you already loved. I've seen her in person only 60 days during the current tenure of our relationship and each and every moment that we spent together is magical. The positive note is I learned to appreciate my relationship with my fiance that much more because nothing is taken for granted.
When that time finally comes that the distance is no longer an issue I'll always remember what the two of us went through. By no reasonable doubt it has been the most rewarding out of all the relationships I've taken part in to include my late four year marriage.
It can be difficult during those lonely times and due to the time zone difference, it can be at times unbearable, nut we always remember our love and dedication to each other and that's always the determining factor that simply we're in love and plan to stay in love and to get married no matter the distance.Long-distance relationships can always work, as long as love is there!
For example, my girlfriend lives 10,000 miles away and it may seem like a large distance, but I love her very much and that's all that matters. They on March 7th, he wrote me a poem and said that her really believed that he loved me, my entire personality and my acceptance of him being born deaf. There's never been any guy in my life that I loved as much as him, and he always tells me of his wishes for the future, after college is done, about marriage, kids, and a home.Yes long distance relationship can work. I believe that if a couple can commit each other to their relationship a long distance will work out. I am with my guy who is from a different country for eight months when I was on vacation and every moment with him was amazing as we are very in love.
I feel like because its a lot easier for him then for me that I'm suffering so much more then him and how is that fair. I think its a lot easier for online relationships to work as you have never actually had that physical contact as yet so you are still developing the relationship and it makes it fun and exciting, however you never know how the relationship will turn out once you meet the person. I know from my own experience that if you both are dedicated, you can easily make a long distance relationship work and it can be a wonderful relationship too!! I have been with my boyfriend for seven months now and I love him to bits, but I want to move in with him next year and I don't know how to do it as I am only 17 (will be 18 soon) and live almost two hours away from him and have a training job. By then my training should have finished, but I don't know how we will afford it and what order I would do things.
Also, the longer the distance, the more difficult it can be, especially when it comes to traveling ( such as expenses and how often you can visit each other).
I have no answer for you, if long distance relationship works or not, but I have been with my boyfriend for about seven years. Technology may be advanced nowadays where you can keep in touch through email, phone calls etc, still, I feel trust and honesty is something that you both have to deal with to keep the relationship going, be it long distance or not.
If you cannot see your boyfriend, but you are longing to, and it hurts, it is easier to move on. The importance of a long distance relationship comes only in one goal, this goal must exist in your relationship coz if not you can never tell that it is working or not, trust and faith to each other is the way for a successful long distance relationship, though we are now dependent of this what we call the era of technology like e-mail, phone-calls, etc.People miss the human contact.
It could work if you already had a serious relationship prior to the distance, but they often drift apart. A long distance relationship isn't just about trust, sacrifice, and all other things it's also about having enough money to see each other.
If you need to experiment, and develop as a person, then I think its wrong to carry on a long distance relationship. So the decision to end it can seem much harder, almost impossible!On the flip side, if you know this is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with and you have spent enough time with them to know that for sure, then of course you should keep it going, but as many others have said, this should include firm commitments to get married or move in together. Otherwise, you are just wasting your precious life, and letting other people slip by.I must say that long distance relationship sometimes work and sometimes not. For the fact that, both parties should really have to develop within themselves the real and true meaning of love, which comprises trust, maturity , honesty and acceptance. True love can be tested in times like these, where two people in love with each other both live in different places.
There maybe some things that you don't know about the person but if he is honest enough with your relationship, he or she will not hide anything from you.It's true that a lot of such relationships fail but I believe that a long distance relationship can work. Its far different from having your partner near you but if you truly love the person, you will walk through any storm in your relationship. It is very important.I've noticed that there seems to be a big difference between people who have already established their relationship before going long-distance and people who have always been long distance.
It depends on each person's loyalty and determination, as well as the strength of the relationship; you're taking a big risk that you might not get along so well if you spent most of your time in the same town.
He would visit me a lot but then things got worse because he cheated on me with another woman and thought I wouldn't have known, that's why it is always good to go with your intuition and your heart! I do believe there's a chance that long-distance relationships have a better chance if the couple was together first. After all, in that situation, they've already proven that they can handle a "real" relationship.
I hate to throw a wrench in the works and say something negative after all folks have said here, but I really have to ask (except for a military assignment) Why someone would stay in a long-distance relationship for over six months or years. I still love my ex; he lives four hours away and we use to try to see each other two times a month at least, but school is getting in the way and so we didn't talk much and we went down hill. But if both partners are weak and not willing, it won't work.You must be willing and committed to the relationship in order for the long distance to work.
