    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 Never Work Out For Me

    Sooo I've been in maybe over 10 long distance relationships and they never work out. One thing about all the guys I dated is that they all lied to me. Maybe they were using me to pass time or because they were desperate? I dunno but all I know is that maybe I'm not good enough...

    I used to be madly infatuated with someone

    who lived in Denmark about 2, 3 years ago. From my experiences, they never work out. I wasted so many tears and lost so much sleep over someone that I would never get to meet, and he broke my heart and I was devastated because of it. Don't have long distance online...

    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.

    I used to be. That was my first relationship,

    and I haven't had any since. I did visit her, but I never actually loved her. I was mostly desperate for companionship, and I thought I might have loved her eventually. That never happened though. There were warning signs from the beginning, but I mostly ignored those, because...

    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.

    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.
