    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...

    I was in a long distance relationship before,

    and it didn't work. We were about 7 months, and I found out that he cheated on me. I honestly think that 7 months wasn't really a long time for me, but we've made sweet memories together. It's been a year, and I still can't forget about him. Everything reminds me of him. But I...

    But my god do they require work.

    Lots of work. Lots of communication, and just as much emotional processing. I shed so many tears because of my LD relationship - and my partner has too. But we'll work through it. Between my depression, their ADHD, my inadequacy complex and their insomnia to compound the LD...

    I'm 23. I just moved 7months ago to LA from a

    country 8,000miles away from here. 3months ago I met this guy who is 20 and still goes to college in Wisconsin. His cousin is the CEO of the company I'm working with, so he comes every summer to do his internship. He's almost as young as my sister, but he is more mature than...

    I seriously wish I was in a LD relationship,

    not like jump into one right now, but really meeting someone and getting to know them, and then eventually becoming more. I just moved to another country for school, which starts in a few weeks, and I have absolutely no one here. If I had that one guy friend that I knew...

    I just love setting up countdown timers.

    ..! The idea of seconds, minutes, hours, days that collectively represent the flowing of time, each second a single sandgrain trickling down the narrow neck from the top to the bottom glass chamber, simply fascinates me. That countdown timer, is now a constant gadget in my...

    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 seriously rather have a LD relationship.

    There exciting! Of course we would set dates up to see one another, but phone calls, Skype and FaceTime, I'm all for it. The excitement built up to see one another is so much fun!!! Idk, I'm different. I like to try new things.

    I've been in a long distance relationship

    for almost 2 years. 385 miles apart. Never thought I would be able to make something like this work. However, we both have SUPER busy lives. I couldn't see it working out if we were actually together. You know how they say... We were perfect for each other, it just wasn't the...

    Hoping and praying for the best.

    . It's sad in a country like mine, most gay relationships have to be an LDR.. And all those looking for a serious relationship know how tough that can be.

    I'm waiting on a soldier

    and people say it's stupid to be in a long distance relationship. But seeing all of your stories have made me stronger in knowing that my relationship will work out despite how others look down upon us.

    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...

    Long Distance Relationship aren’t always

    ideal. In fact, they’re really tough. You spend countless of hours just talking through a phone or through a screen. You can’t see the person when you want to or when you most need them.. You can’t hug, you can’t hold hands, you can’t kiss. You lose the intimacy in a...

    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...

    My boyfriend got the chance to study in the US

    now. It was his dream from when he was small. I won't stop him from chasing his dreams but I am really sad that he leaves. I hope the long-distance relationship works.

    Love is love whether across the room

    or across continents. True love does not lessen when crossing time zones or seas. Mountains are no obstacle and neither should be the negativity of others. You can still make time.. Have a laugh, talk all about your day. Share pictures and spend the evening with a video chat...

    True love is true love,

    and it is a powerful emotion no matter what the distance. It may be hard, but a long distance relationship can work.

    Lies may live in your bed

    and you won't know it's happening before your very eyes.Love travails time and distance and you're just happy knowing that feelings happen even if you don't see them.

    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.

    The world is so small . If you really love someone you will be with them wherever that is. I believe this with my whole heart.

    I wouldn't mind hearing some stories about long

    distance relationships. Do you think they can work? Did it work for you? I'd like to know. I met someone who lives in another state and I'd like some thoughts about dating long distance.

    They can be hard but I've seen them work.

    I've seen more fail and succeed but those that have succeeded seem to be as happy as close distance relationships.
