    “Love is not about sex,

    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...

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
