    My boyfriend and I started dating

    'unofficially' in November 2014; he'd come see me once a month. I live in the NYC area, and he lives in Philly. In January of 2015, he asked me to be his girlfriend, and of course, I said yes. Since January, we see each other between 1 - 3 times per month, depending on the month...

    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...

    but maybe that's because I am in one? we've only talked through social media and have been with the title of "dating" for about 5 months nearly 6! but truth be told we've never sykped, never called each other but are on at least more than once every day msging. I'm worried that...

    “Love is not about sex,

    going on fancy dates, or showing off. It’s about being with a person who makes you happy in a way nobody else can.”

    I'm in a long distance relationship.

    He's in the navy and it's really hard not getting to see each other and pretty much having a relationship with a telephone. See each other maybe twice a year or more if lucky. But love is stronger and can make it through until we can be together. I feel you all!

    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 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...

    Trust, Respet and communication,

    the cornerstones of any healthy strong relationship whether it is long distance or not. Once one part fails, the relationship is doomed. They all work together and all have to be an integral and most important aspects.

    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...
