it matters and doesn't matter also.

If there is trust, love and understanding, it doesn't matter.

Well you guys affraid of distance are creating problems for themselves. Insecurity and lack of trust is the root of their fears.

distace matters a lot.

If there's no trust, self control and love its doomed.

If distance matters, does it mean that those who love their spouse with deep commitment would follow their partner to great world beyond when s/she kick the bucket?

If s/he had to go to oversea to advance his/her career, is that the end? Would you stop him/her? Would you rather resign your job and follow?

Let us be reasonable. Sentiments don't always make sense.

I assume you mean physical distance because distance is relative. You could be in the same town and there'll still be distance in a relationship. So I guess it depends on the individuals involved. Although physical distance in a relationship is a killer! and love doesn't always survive this. Its the hard work you both put into it that sustains it.

distance really matters in a relationship. i'm sure most people who have said it doesn't matter

have not being in such situation before.

believe me ,i know what it's like. it takes God's grace for such relationship to work.

mine, didn't workout.

Well i believe distance matters a lot but first consider the type of distance. The type of relationships that end with distance are when the two lovers are apart and do not have hope of seeing each other in a foreseeable time. That distance kills relationships and most guys can't tolerate it.

The second boils down to the attitude of the girls. You know girls due to their predominantly questionable character.

Women are like bees swarming in a hive. In your presence they portray you as the loveliest heart. But your absence creates a vacuum requiring another loveliest heart.

Girls, prove me wrong.

What really counts is not so much the love and trust but more of discipline.

It takes discipline for you to be faithful to a person you hardly see or know what S/He is doing wherever.

As someone earlier said, Absence heightens love but presence strengthens it.

to be honest distant relationships do take there toll on u eventually. i'm in one now i'm in jigawa he's in IB. the stress is getting to us but we keep reminding each other to keep strong. u just have to keep focused and decide if wat u have is worth throwing away or not. if it's worth it u u do all u can to keep it going. same goes for a relationship not affected by distance.

hey guys keep the flag flyin

i am also of the opinion that distance do matter in a relationship. "Out of sight is out of mind" and "The nearest is the dearest" those are words back then we used to tell girls who tell us that they have a bf in faraway london or US and most times we get then to compromise.lol. Anyway i do believe that sometimes a relationship goes beyond trust and loyalty-One issue of faithfulness of the other partner involved and how sincere he/she can be most definately matter.

In that case, the relationship is useless, even when they are close.

Distance or not distance, cheaters would always have their ways.

Well to my own opinion l think distance matters and at the same time it doesn't. I am an example:- l have travelled overseas now for the past 3years leaving a relationship of 4years behind. Yes my partner love me so much that even if l tell him, he's free to keep another relationship, do you know what he tells me? He will say he will never do that, despite the fact that lam a naughty girl l will say, he still loves me yet he have sex with other girls and he won't allow me too yet l miss sex so bad. When ever lam urge push me too close to men l prefer to get manipulated and 3 to 4 time have l had anus sex for l receive my Kitty-Cat for my baby. l love him so much l think if we no longer be together l will not have any other guy for hes my 2nd love but l gave him my virginity. So l will say distance matters for some distance makes relationship or love fade when the 2 parties can not tell when they will see or hold each other again, Telephone or other mains of communications can never take the place of someone you truly love.
