    Metamorphosis Of Non-universal Love..misery.

    All forms of love except that which transcends the physical nature and attributes , and that which is all pervasive, results in misery. This idea is not as complex and profound as it may sound. Simplistically put, such love, whose object is physical form and physical attributes...

    LDRs can work if both parties are truthful

    and committed to each other. But I've found that most of the time one person of the relationship is not being truthful about who they are - or what they really want from the relationship. When you can't get a decent picture of the person, or Skype with them, something is not...

    Test Of Love.

    Long distance relationships are the purest test of love. If you can love someone on the other side of the world and still trust them, you have already got what a lot of ‘real relationships’ do not. How you keep the spice of the relationship with every smiles in the pictures...

    A long distance relationship certainly has the

    potential to work. But heed my advice: Don't make your first strong love relationship long distance.

    To be honest, I mostly call you just to hear

    your voice. I may ask about your day though I don't have much to say. Each call is just a ruse hoping you'll agree to whisper any tidbit in my ear. If I could only replace this plastic phone with your lips pressed lightly on my mine, cut our distance, miles to inches and have...

    My Story

    My story could be perceived as a digital fairy tale. The book would be 700 pages long, so I'll spare you all the little details. Let's just say that I met a girl online by complete accident. But we got talking. She was at college in New York, I was living and working in...

    Am I the only one that believes in long

    distance relationships? And I'm not talking about dating the person for a month or 2 than giving up. I mean like dating them for 9-10 months or maybe a year or longer than finally waiting for the day that you meet them? I feel like I'm the only person who would do that because I...

    Five Years, 100 Round-Trip Flights, Many Emails, Daily Calls

    I started a long-distance relationship (very) soon after meeting the lovely lady to whom I'm now married. She was just starting college, I was just moving on to grad school some 500 miles away, and we gave it a go. We were long distance for 5 years until I finished grad school...

    I've been in a long distance relationship

    for 8 months now. We met in a karaoke app, so at first most (if not everything) of the things we do together are songs. After sometime, we are now experiencing the struggles of being in a LDR on a 12-hour time difference. It's just fortunate that I work on his timezone, so we...

    Almost eight years ago,

    I had a relationship with a really good friend. Sadly when we confessed our feelings, he and his family were moving to another county, an hour away. We were in high school but we were really in love. We never had sex, we were both into music, art, and outdoor activities. He...

    A perfect relationship is not

    that you never get angry, upset, irritated with each other. It is how fast you resolve and bounce back to normal.

    My bestfriends mom had a long distance with her

    boyfriend for about 6 years and met each other 2 years after and they just got married. I think long distance relationship can work if both sides don't give up or lie and cheat on the other person.

    Does anyone want a long distance relationship?

    I was skeptical about them at first until I got in one. But sometimes you have to believe in them because what if you didn't know anyone around your way? What if no one was worth your time? What would you do than? Would long distance relationships be negotiable than?
