How Do You Make A Long Distance Relationship Work?

I live about 12 hours away from my Girlfriend (to be) but we are thinking about how to make the relationship work. As for me, i really want to make it work but i dont know about her. Has anyone ever had a long distance relationship and what did you do to make it work.

Any tips please.

From experience, i doubt if its going to work.

I was in such for a little above two years ! Everything was really cool and we really tried to make it work. She was in U.S and i was in Lagos. lot of calls and other things u dont even want to imagine ! I later found out she was messing up through her friend which was authoritatively confirmed to me.

O boy, try and protect your heart and make sure your shock absorber is intact so that, when yawa gas, u wont be left high and dry.

I wish you the very best of luck.

Cheers

Well, the major ingredients for a successful relationship is TRUST and TIME. you won't go far if you don't trust the other. And you get to entwine your hearts together as you spend more time together. However, not everyone is a Distance Material. My first relationship crashed because i had to school far away from her. My second relationship soared because she was ever strong even in the huge space that separated us. She told me things on phone that nearly made me cry, and practically nullified all attempts by other ladies to steal me away from her(ladies man!).

THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER. FIND THE RIGHT PERSON, THEN YOU'LL HAVE LESS WORDS TO SAY, AND PROBABLY LESS EXCUSES TO GIVE, COZ THE TRUST WILL OVERPOWER THE DISTANCE.

PEACE

if u trust her well enough and have doubts ask her about it that why its a relationship between the two of u and not a third party. why make ur friend keep an eye on her?it proves u cant trust her words

Hi PPl, with all due respect Acid drop,what makes you think an open relationship is the answer, or r u trying to destroy d boi's relationship ?. manmustwac, Listen bruv, i'm in one right now, my girl is in Lagos(Nigeria) i'm in London we've been 2geva 4 4 yrs since secondary school and we still are. The key is communicationand trust as well as self confidence(i.e no one else can replace you in her life. Try to find out d topix she is intrested in and call her like every week(don't call too much or she'll get bored) and if you have doubts about her honesty try to get some friend to keep an eye on her and return d info 2 u. Don't listen to acid drop or the relationship is doomed before it even starts, coz an open relationship is no relationship, plus don't cheat on her either.

I DNT THINK THAT IS THE CASE. WOMEN NATURALLY ARE CONFUSED CREATURES, MOST OF THE TIME THEY CANT SEEM TO MAKE UP THEIR MIND. THE STORIES ARE PATHETIC AND SIMILAR IN EXECUTION THATS WHY I BELIEVE LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS DONT WORK.

I'm in it and i can tell you it aint easy at all especially if the distance is across the border. Well the relationship has to be open, both parties must be faithful, truthful,there must be love, lots of phonecalls above all the relationship has to be tabled before God with lots of prayers. All these has been working for me. For two yrs now we havent seen but our love is stronger compare to those who see everyday.

I think you should only do it if that's all the option you have, if the phone calls are free or close to free, or move closer to each other. Don't crucify me that's just my view.

both of you have to be truthful to your selves and be realistic about your expectations.

Sometimes long distance relationship really serve to test how committed you are to each other.
