Do Long Distance Relationships Work?

Distant Relationship, does it work?

Welcome to share your opinion on this subject.

I personally believe in this even though am yet to meet my virtual girl friend who is far away from em and we have never met before. We have been in relationship getting to 5 years now.

Still yet to meet; everything works out for us except our physical interraction.

Has it worked for you and you got married? Or you are also in it. Share your experiences and opinions about this here.

Of course, no one wishes to be in a long distance relationship, but situations arise and you have no choice. Am in one right now, and it's goin fine. We speak on phone at least 2ce a day, plus facebook chat and IM. Only diff is dat we dont see. Its not easy but totally worth it.

Guys,i think distance relationship work for some but for people like me have found it hard to get into one because i don't like it,

i always love to be around people i love but i found out that have only been able to fall in love with people far away from me and it still stop me from getting into one

Depends on finances, tolerance and maturity, finances to support frequent international/long-distance phone calls, occassional trips & visits, possibly plane flights, or train journeys, and maturity to understand, you can have certain things at your beck and call, maturity and security to know and have faith in the other person and not to be constantly hounding the other person. Lastly, tolerance, you have to tolerate, missed calls, lonely nights, staying up late and not receiving phone call or being put on hold because of busy lifestyle or work, also to tolerate being left in the dark for short periods of time.

Long relationship will work depending on the individuals involved but most importantly dont make the space in time be too long. i.e. see each other at least once a month and spend at least three hours together. 5 years is ceazy, it will never work. Like someone said, body no be fire wood.

If you don't trust yourself then don't commit into a long distance relationship.

It’s more like a challenge to me, to see how far my patience will go.

And yes this type of relationship works when you believe in both yourself and partner.

Long distance relationship can work, however, it's difficult and often cannot last. This relationship asks one of the two to give up something, or it always can not last. I just met a wonderful guy 8 years younger than me at online site Agematch.com, to strengthen our relationship, I plan to move to his place.

i believe it can work so long there is communication.

what blood is 2 the body, communication is 2 a relationship. when blood stops flowing, the body becomes lifeless. when communication stops, your relationship dies.

i as a lady can't be seeing my guy everyday, so prefer the distance type.

faithfulness must be a watch word.

2 me it is the best and don't ever assume ur parner is cheating on u.

Well, Long distance relationship works but its depends on the individual involves, i am into one presently for the past 3yrs and things are moving on well, i don't feel the absent except that i can see him physical,

Although there is more to it, its requires lots of patient and trust to get it moving, but i am cool, Yes there are some good and bad days, quarrels and Miss-understanding.

Even when you have one closer to your nose, its might never works out,

As for me i believe so much in it and it gonna work for me.

Long distance relationships are usually a challenge, but sometimes it can be very interesting.

if u have a choice, try to cut the long distance out, eventually, because long distance relationships are truly not sustainable in the long run.

but i think what really matters is communication,

some people may even live in the same state but do not see or talk to each other often, no be dat one bad pass.

i have experienced both kinds, long distance and short.

what works best for me is a relationship where we both live within 5km max, nothing more!!!!

otherwise, i no dey!!

Hello my fellow Nigerians

Believe it, it does work ,what you dont know or see cant kill you but its more expensive though financially and emotionally.

i dated someone for three years we saw once a month so basicly we had just 3months to our sleves all through but the love was so hot .

we called every other day . the mind is a very strong thing thats something no body can hold down and this long distance relations thats its main tool your mind you dont get to see the person but your mind is always running on the person .

for more details just ask so i can be more specific.

i even sent mails everyday excluding december tahst when we get to see .

all the best

anyway best of lucks

Well I'm currently in a long distance relationship,It is work out fine so far.Yes thing can get hard and tense from time to time. There are good and bad days. I believe that if the 2 people really love each other and there is alot of good communication.I think long distance relationship can work just fine. All you need is real love for each other. And it depends of the type of person you are.

It depends on how long the two of you are apart.

Suppose he's in Uk and she's in Iraq

And the two meets in Nigeria within every 3 months

Thats cool now.

But if she's in Ibadan and He's in lagos.

and both meets once every one year

Thats really a long distance, long time,

So I dont think it will work

LDr is the hardest thing.Its no fun at all. Its not the best except whr u can't help it. I'm in one and the distance is driving me nuts, it makes us quarrel like cat and dog but when we are together, we are the model couple. I'll not advise anyone that isnt in one to go into it if you can help it. Mine is working alright but its hardwork. speeding up plans to be together soon. Cant take it no more.

Umm, i don't see how you can be dating someone invisibly for 5yrs, that to me is not a relationship. Long distance relationship works when you see each other few times a year at least but in your case, you either see each other soon or end it please.
