    Yeah...

    ...mine didn't work out. It is very very very difficult. I really believed for 2 years that it would work, but now I don't. I wish things had been different. The only way it can work is if two people are in it together, and do everything they can to see each other. Unfortunately...

    Nevermind :/

    I don't think I will ever have a long distance relationship again, they never work out, I will stick with people who are from the UK (same as me) but no where like America or anywhere. You don't know what they're doing behind your back. :/
