    I can distinctly say

    that he's been on my mind, ever since, we got together. I have told myself many times that it's silly to crave someone who doesn't want you anymore, but I'm helpless and the love that I have for him seems to conquer every other feeling. The connection that I had with him...

    It was wonderful! We had 3 amazing years living

    in different states. Then he moved here and proposed. It has been another 3 years and I wish everyday that he still lived out of state.

    Unfair Relationship

    I was recently in a long distance relationship that didn't work out. I feel like I want to share my story to see if people have the same opinions as me, that it was an unfair relationship for me. It all started two years ago when I met her at a little party/gathering of people...

    They're extremely difficult though

    and it's hard to determine what your partner truly thinks of you. You can't see their facial expressions, feel your body against theres, all you can do is wait to be together which may never happen. You feel alone sometimes. For all you know you could be getting catfished...

    It was eight months long.

    I know he is who he says he is but we never even spoke on the phone, he never skyped me, it was just hard loving someone and not knowing what their voice even sounded like

    Don't Really See How They Can Work...

    I guess at this point I can say that I had (past tense) a long distance relationship.  I learned a lot about myself, and where I am at this point in my life, and how I don't want really want to risk my current way of life in the name of love.  That last part rather...

    Happy Ending...new Beginning

    I was in a long distance relationship for 7 years. We met when we were 16. I am from California and he is from Germany. We got to know on another for about 9 months before he had to go back to Germany. We decided to give the long distance a shot. We visited each other once a year...

    I met my first boyfriend online.

    Almost three years ago,

    I remember my faith in long distance relationships was fading away. Experience showed me that behind those people I thought I knew and cared about were either too many lies and doubts to trust, or too much time and far too many kilometers for feelings to last. But then I met...

    I fell in love with a boy,

    who so rapidly stole my heart with his "I love you's" and sweet words, but then he randomly decided he didn't want to talk to me anymore. Why would he do that to me, why lead me on for nothing.

    I remained faithful and she swore she did too.

    One morning when I sent her a text her 'boyfriend' texted me back. Then call me a dickhead because I didn't want to continue the relationship.

    From Manila With Love

    I lived in the UK, she lived in Manila, Philippines, and we found each other through an online dating site. It was never really my intention to find someone from outside my own locale, let alone 8000-odd miles away, but when she made contact I was intrigued. She was very pretty...

    What's 12000 miles when your in love.

    The best 3 years of my life happened when I fell for a guy in Australia. I was 16 and in England. Although I was so far away from him 60% of the time we made it work. Now 10 years since we met and we are the best of friends. My advise: always trust your heart

    Long distance relationships,

    All my relationships have been a LDR.

    None have them worked out..im not saying they're bad because i truly believe you can make them work. I am just too young to fly out to him and vise versa...and that destroyed the relationship.

    Never date someone from a different state.

    It is a bad thing. I just got dumped because the girl loves her ex. I guess that's ok. Long distance relationships are horrible because you never know if they're cheating on you.
