I Believe Long Distance Relationship Can Work

True Love Conquers Everything ... 23,112 People

    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...

    I was very fortunate

    and consider myself lucky that the true love of my life happened in a long-distance relationship. However, I am very unfortunate but never guilty that she just gave up every hope so early and completely lost her faith in the power of real love. I wish wherever she is today, God...

    Long Distance Relationship is possible

    as long as both still look at the same sky, step the same planet, breathe the same air. Love can move mountains, divide the sea and detour the wind!

    Even though mine ended

    after three and a half years I don't regret a second of it. Don't get me wrong there were difficult times but you get to know that person better (in my opinion) because you are stuck only being able to talk with or text them. So I just think that you should never be afraid to...

    Am living in SM deprived of love.

    Still, I don't want to cheat on, guess long term relationships on internet or virtual relationships can't be termed as cheating and two people living at distant ends can fulfill the needs by loving and caring each other. Don't judge me. Correct me if am wrong.

    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...

    Long distance relationships do not rely on

    physical love, long distance relationships are driven by the love that inspires your heart , mind and soul

    The last relationship I had was long distance,

    and it lasted 9 months, I had so much fun even though I never met her I loved her so much, I do believe it can work, I'd happily try it again, but I prefer to sit down and get to know them first xP
