It depends on you and your lover ;)<br />
Time & Distance could mean nothing if the connections between you and your lover are strong enough<br />
and if you could conquer them ,,<br />
It will be definitely longlasting as you want<br />
But again ,, "love" is too fragile ,, If you dont take care it good ,, It breaks and your heart will be broken & hurted :(
It depends on the relationship and the people in it...<br />
My boyfriend & I have been together for 14 years. <br />
For a little over eight years we were many hundreds of miles apart. <br />
And the time apart was not easy! <br />
He was in a situation where we could not always talk to each other. Sometimes there'd even be months where we were only able to write. <br />
And your mind can become your worst enemy, imaginig all types of scenarios. <br />
You want to know what he's doing, who he's with, etc & unless you know others where he is at, you pretty much have to take his word for it. <br />
If there's trust issues when you're together - actually, if there's any issues when you're together - distance can magnify them greatly. <br />
We have always maintained a strong desire to be together. We relied upon each other to stay positive & there was near-constant reassurances of love needed by both of us. <br />
It can get very lonely, obviously, and it's important to be open about your needs. <br />
Communication is crucial. So many questions, hard questions, need to be asked and answered. <br />
Especially regarding seeing other people or not. <br />
So much depends on individual circumstances & the distance involved. Always trying to fit so many memories into the occasional visit... <br />
Anyway, sorry. i tend to go on & on sometimes.<br />
The simple answer? <br />
Yes, long distance relationships can work out. <br />
We've been living together again since he returned a little over a year ago. :~)
From my experience (Just got out of a long distance relationship) It works in the short term but its not something that can be kept at permanent circumstances, especially if you guys are exclusive.<br />
But if your both determined, it could work.<br />
Me and my ex just couldnt hande it.
I belive they can work. My school friend met her husban online while she was in Canada and him in the states, and after dating for about a year she moved there and married him. <br />
I do think it's probably more difficult than other relationships though.
They work well for migratory birds.
It rarely does.
I've been in two of them -- one more effective than the other, but neither of them ideal.
they don't work for the most part but stranger things have happened<br />
just be ready for it if it doesn't work out so your heart is ready for the break up.
for the most part i don't think so. it seems like a complete waste of time.
If you both want that yeap!
It doesn't work because one of you might not be strong enough to surpass the reality of separation and being not together always.
