I Believe Long Distance Relationship Can Work

True Love Conquers Everything ... 31,115 People

    I met someone here on EP 3

    and a half years ago and we had a 3 year LDR. I'd spend 3 months in Florida with her and she'd spend 3 months here in the UK with me. Around half of that 3 years was spent online (on skype for several hours a days!) in between our visits. It takes a lot of commitment to make an...

    I'm a Filipina (woman from the Philippines)

    and I met a Black American man during my training in Texas, USA in Dec 2014. He's 14 years older than me but he doesn't look like his age because he looks younger. I'm 29 and he's 43. Even if I went back to my country, he kept on communicating with me & we gave ourselves a...

    I do believe a long distance relationship can

    work, as long as there is communication and trust with each other and of course being loyal, but I think a long distance relationship can work

    I lived through one for 3 years

    before we finally got settled somewhere together. We met in Australia although he was only there on a student visa. He's from Norway, and for the most part of our relationship we communicated by Skype and FaceTime with 16,000kms betweens us. We would see each other 2 maybe 3...

    I believe it can but I don't know

    if I even want to search online or take the chance. While I do think it can work as it has for thousands already, I'm also a believer in intimacy and having actual physical contact with that person. For those that are in online relationships, how do you guys compromise for this...

    I believe the key fundamentals of a LDR are

    clearly Love, Trust, Honesty, Commitment, Communication, with Trust and love being highest, if your love and trust for each other can get you through then why can't it work, but as the saying goes Trust has to be earned from both sides and if it's only going one way then someone...

    sigh. I miss my boyfriend

    so much today. Haven't talked to him all week. :/ Waiting for Sunday to get at least a 5 minute call... I prefer to come here for support because you all are much more nicer than the ladies on the military girlfriend page.

    I met him in a video game april of 2009.

    He was 19 and I was 22. We played together everyday for weeks so why not add him to my social network profile right? So we added each other on both Myspace and Facebook around May 16th 2009. From there we started talking in Skype with a group of other gamer friends. Then we...

    I'd be lying if I said it was easy

    but if you can find someone who loves you on the other side of the world (That in itself sounds impossible) Then why can it not work? Fear, Doubt and lack of communication can tear you apart. But you both need to be strong... It is key! It is vital .. As long as at some point...

    LDR's are hard. but worth it.

    they are the strongest relationships ever. when the two people get to see each other it's a cherished moment. it helps people know how much they love each other. how much they mean to each other.

    I've been in a long distance relationship

    for 3 and a half years now. 59 days (not counting or anything) left til I leave and move in with him. I get asked so much how to make it work. You really have to be the sort of person to be able to do it in the first place. There're no strict rules, nothing should feel overly...

    now that lives far away, and it's like 1 or 2 am where he's at, and it's only 9, or 10 pm where I'm at. And I call him, just to hear his voice. I picture him laying in his bed, with the moonlight beaming into his room. His eyes shut, phone half off his face, asking me what's...

    The test of love is not

    when people are together. It comes when they are not together and realize that despite the distance, love is still there.

    I just love setting up countdown timers.

    and it only ended due to conflict not because of the distance. Looking for another girlfriend who will be there for me and I for them.
