No one wants to be in a long distance relationship, it wasn't easy, but when you spend time apart, you will find out how strong your relationship really is. In my experience, it helps me to be more patient and mature. I felt that my love for her increases day by day. And when we’re together, it allows me to value our time much more than ever before. Like I said, it is not easy but I think it will all be worth it in the end.

How about you guys, what is your opinion about a long-distance relationship? what are your experiences with it?

Actually I don't want to experience that.  Much better to initiate the break up rather than to have a long distance relationship.  It's hard to find your peace of mind in that kind of relationship, and I think it's really hard to fix the problem if ever.

I absolutely do! My husband and I were in a long distance relationship and now we're married and have been for almost 5 years. It's tough but I think it really encourages and fosters great communication which is such an important part of a healthy relationship.

I also think that it helps you also understand that you have your own interests and hobbies, and that you don't have to do everything with your significant other, so you still have a sense of identity yourself.

Me too honestly I really don't like it to experience because I just want that my special someone is  with as much as possible but sometimes due to some reasons our partner needs to go to other places either for work purposes or any important matters and long distance relationship exist in that way. Sometimes trust and patience is the foundation when we experience long distance relationship with our partners to make our relationship last longer. I think it really last if the two person respect one another and if they have trust and confidence to their self that no matter what happen they will still follow their promises.

Even if I don't want to experience it, I think there will come a time where I will need to enter into a long distance relationship. I am going to another country for work and I think it will be hard to adapt to both the new culture of the country and also in a long distance relationship at the same time.

I completely agree with you, if anything, it strengthens the relationship.

I don't have experience, as I haven't ever been in a long distance relationship, but from hearing others thoughts on the subject and having a close friend that's in one: commitment plays a big part.

If both parties commit and put the effort in, anything can work.

I suppose it depends on the person.  I mean, myself, I failed at it - but then again,  was young and inexperienced.  Who knows what I'd do now?

Long distance relationship is really difficult to deal with. But there are still more cases that LDR had gone successful and lasts long. I believe if you truly love that person, no matter how far he or she is, you'll stay faithful, loyal as well as you trusted him or her.

Yes, LDR can last as long as the both of you are trying your best to make it last. It needs patient and understanding. Understand each other and just communicate with each other. Communication will make your relationship strong especially nowadays that we can easily  find many ways on how to connect and communicate with each other because of the advancement of technology. I know a lot of couple who have been suffering from LDR for  long years but end up still together because they choose each other.

Yeah I think but only few of them I think. Mostly relationship won't work with this type of relationship since connection and communication is important to a relationship. It all depends to your partner also if he wanted to sacrifice his/herself dealing with the problems behind your relationship. I was once a girl  who craved for his love ones to comeback as soon as possible. I already experience this kind of feeling where in you have to be strong for you to handle your feelings with your partner when he was not with you for a along time. Trust, honesty and loyalty are important when you are in this kind of relationship.

I really believe that long distance relationship could really last because sometimes it is up to us on how the relationship will be manage correctly. As long as we give much time on communication to each other to have frequent messages or call since communication is very important in a certain relationship. Without communication I think a certain relationship will fail because it gives us the feeling of safety and assurance.

I had a long distance relationship before I must say it's not really easy. We're lucky in this generation because we can easily communicate even if we're far away from our loved ones. We could talk them through the use of the internet we can even see them online. Having a long distance relationship will only last if you're gonna work hard on it, it would be very hard because you're not physically together but if you make way on how your relationship gonna work I think there's nothing impossible if you truly love each other.

They can last better than in the past, way better!  I mean, before 1995 there was no internet, and especially no video chat.  I don't even know how long distance stuff was possible at all in those days!  There was only handwritten letters and the telephone (and long distance can be expensive).

I do believe that Long Distance Relationship's longevity depends upon the couples involved. As a person who have experienced an LDR, it was very tough especially that I'm still a teenager (18 actually), everything was very hard. I can't communicate with her personally and I can't see her face all the time. It actually made me insecure as a man because I feel like if I won't see her, there will be tons of other guys who could take her away from me.

Our relationship didn't actually last that long because I gave up eventually. However, I'm not saying this applies to every couple with an LDR. I guess, if you want to enter a relationship like LDR, you must be strong and courageous enough so that you won't give up like how I did.

I have never been in a long distance relationship but I really admire those couples who survived months to years of being apart from each other, had several misunderstandings, fights, and struggles on keeping the relationship, and overlooked every hindrance.
As to your question, I think there are some that last and there are that doesn't. I think it depends on couples if they are strong enough and the love is so strong I think the relationship will last.

In my opinion, it really depends on the two persons. Relationship is a two-way commitment. You must give and receive. If the man is away from the woman chances are slim, not being selfish, we all know that men are needing some "physical attention and affection." And if the woman is away from the man, it depends how she will be affected of the loneliness. Women are persons who cheat emotionally, while men, cheat physically.

I am currently in a long distance relationship now and it's been okay so far. I can't say it's good since there are still challenges to it but we're going strong. I think long distance relationships work if both of you try to work for it. That is, if both of you try to do your best to make it work and that you both work for your relationship. If you or your partner would give up on your relationship just because of the distance that's keeping you apart, then surely your relationship would fail.

Yes it can, but it all depends on how serious you both are.  You should make sure that you're always in contact with one another and visit each other every opportunity you get.

I have friends who are in a long distance relationship who actually ended up getting married. It is always in their mindset that they have to understand that the reason why they have to be far from one another is because of the career they choose to pursue. It's always a give and take process that they have to compromise with, and they always keep the communication open despite their time zones. That is how their relationship last.
