In our modern generation where we have a lot of techonologies where we can use to communicate someone from anywhere around the planet does distance really matter?

I believe that with a lot of technologies now there is no more barrier of distance. You can communicate with your partner anywhere you are. This is of great help for those who are having a long distance relationship. You can get closer through communication technology.

It does, at least to me. I'm currently moving-on from a previous long distance relationship. Our relationship came to a point that our communication went to almost zero. We became insecure, I started to get jealous, I don't know about her. Our pride kicked in because of lack of communication, we had no idea what's going on and we kept guessing on our feelings for each other. It came to a point that I had to let go of her because I thought I don't see the point of holding on anymore. I still wish we're together but I think it is too late.

In my opinion, if the love is true between two, there is no distance that can separate them. And I think that nowadays technology has a lot to do with it. Thanks to video and phone calls, nowadays you can easily communicate with your partner. Regardless how far you are, you and your partner can always see or hear each other. Today's technology brings people closer.

We do have a lot of technologies that people can utilize to connect with each other.  In today's world, you don't really even need a cell phone to connect with each other. You can use your computer, Netbook Laptop, tablet, and even an iPod to communicate with people.
The most important key is to have an internet connection. Distance does matter because people have to decide if they are willing to take risks and or make sacrifices to overcome distance to meet with you.   If one does overcome distance and make the sacrifice to see you is there an ulterior motive?  There needs to be a benefit when someone makes sacrifices; especially when you consider distance. When someone spends the time to overcome distance that is something that they cannot get back.  Time is a precious commodity it's not like money you can't make time again once it's gone.

[/quoteI agree with you. We have the same answer. There is no more distance in relationships because of technologies through the internet. Relationships can be made closer through video calls and phone calls.

One of my friends was in a long-distance relationship with a guy in Australia (we're in the US).  It lasted a pretty long time, so no, I don't think distance matters.

Me too, I have one friend that currently lives in the UK and is dating someone in the US.

It's perfectly do-able it just requires effort on both sides to make the LDR work!

I believe that distance matters, but not critical. For example, I looked at the site https://urloveliness.com for reviews of various services for dating and one of them found a beautiful girl. We live far from each other, but for several years together and even a hint of betrayal was not

I was just in a LDR and I live in NC while she lives in NJ and the distant thing was just not working out for her. Even with technology the way it is today... We would talk on the phone for hours EVERY night... text throughout the day but ultimately she came to the conclusion she isn't moving anytime in the near future and I will not go to NJ so why are we keeping it up...

I was in a long distance relationship for 2 years. She was from Slovakia and I am from Norway.  We spent the half year being together and continued the relationship with long distance. It is really hard, but its worth it if thats the only option. In today media world there is many ways of communicating. In our case we used WhatsApp and Facetime the most. Every day we texted good morning and throughout the day we texted eachother. We ended also the day be sending goodnight messages. We also used facetime 2-3 times a week. Its all about routines. Also never underestimate sending a nice message during the night. Its the best feeling when waking up.

In my opinon long distance is really hard and its an important to have an "end date" on when the distance will end. In my case I was a bit too supporting and always wanted her to be the best version of herself. Therefore I engouraged her to say yes to career opportunities (even if it mean extending the long distance). I was maybe naive and it became hard to keep the love alive. She then broke up with me...

To sum up. In my case distance mattered over time. Its hard to keep the love alive when not together. But with good communication, respect and mutual goals, the love can survive pretty long. Its all about effort and hard work.

The fact the divorce stats on those who meet, date and fall in love the traditional way are not so hot, I'd say Long Distance Relationships (LDR) are no better off or worse than traditional dating. There is no doubt that eventually you would have to meet the LDR person in person but building that foundation before meeting is like traditional dating. I call it, "get to know each other stage".

 I know people who say that when they meet someone in person on a traditional date they are less real to whom they really are v.s. a person whom they meet over the net.  In other words, the net  doesn't have the same stress factors as pretending to be something you are not  when meeting someone for the first time in person. Consequently, the first hurdle of the "get to know each other stage" may be more true to whom they are versus the facade one may put on when they are meeting for the first time while sitting across from each other at a restaurant.

I believe in this day and age that distance does not matter, because of all our opportunities to stay connected with each other. Although, nothing beats having a face-to-face conversation with people, especially the one you love, is better. But I do believe that with enough time and effort a long distance relationship will work.

No distance shouldn't matter as long as both parties try and keep connection open.

I'm in a distance marriage and I'm gonna say. I too said distance didn't matter when I first started out and my gosh now was I wrong. The time difference, busy schedule. I'm constantly feeling lonely, when u need sex and he's or she isn't there then your in real trouble.

I don't think in our days distance does matters. The most important thing is love between people and the desire to create relationships. I have a friend who were in a long-distance relationship during the last year with a guy from UK. Thanks to technology, they communicated every day on Watsapp. And now, a year later, my friend moved to him to London.

Hey guys,

I'm casting for the new season of hit docu-series, "Before the 90 Days" and am seeking Americans in a long distance relationship with someone overseas that they have yet to meet.

If you are planning on meeting for the first time this year, I would love to discuss the show further with you.

Please email k1showcasting (at) gmail.com for more information!

As long as both parties think about a future together - no, it doesn't!

I don’t think distance matters BUT it also depends on the person and what they want out of a relationship.

Personally I think the distance makes it better because it brings a closer bond but some people are very reluctant to enter into a LDR

I have been in long distance relationship few times. For me it matters when you don't have the right partner and right mentality towards it. Like, if you have trust issues then long distance could really affect you.

Trust and a future in common is the key for maintaining long-distance relationships! Once one of the two is lost things start going downhill...

Let's say technology makes it a whole lot easier these days to feel ''connected''
But the barrier of not being physical near your SO is always something that feels like it's missing.
Especially if you have the lucks to meet this person and spend hours, days together and after return to mundane life it feels like a piece of yourself is missing.
And the satisfaction you felt before from having calls, texts, video calls feels way less.

So, before you get yourself into a LDR, be sure you are ready to face all the aspects of it.

Depends beloved, whether you love physical touch and spending quality time together. Yes I believe that you can have a long distance relationship when you share the same Values and vision. Communication is key and experiencing life together once a while too.
My point of view.

For me with wifi and internet I think it really good for Long distance relationship. But the honest and trust is the most important to keep it last. Here is some tips for LDR.
Make sure we share the little moments of joy
Important to take time of our priority for your lover
Talk through struggle and hard feelings, text easy to misinterpret, make sure you talk through them. Long distance Relationship is hard but it can also be incredible. When you love trust and respect someone from a distance, you will be unstoppable when you are together

When there is life there is hope

long distance has never worked for me and once I discovered I could not rely on technology and had a relationship with someone local it confirmed to myself anyway that you cannot beat being close to the person you love or are attracted to.
I like my phone and email like most other people but I doubt full body language in the presence of that specual person can somehow be maintained similar using cameras and gadgets, my experience has taught me to rely on eachothers presence.
A quick call or a text and a couple of kisses is fine but I just prefer the person close to me.
