Author Topic: What's the longest long-distance relationship you've been in?

For some people, long distance might be a state or two away. For some, it might be at opposite ends of the country...and then for others, it may even be international! My husband and I are from the United States and Australia respectively, so we had to do SUPER long distance for a while.

How about you? What's the longest distance relationship you've been in? And did it work out?

My first distant relationship was a state distant one. It was like 15 hours drive apart. I actually tried my best to make the relationship work out which it did for close to 5 years before we separated on a mutual consent because her family refused that she wouldn't marry outside of her tribe.

It was actually painful having to let her go but I really don't have any choice but to do so because I really didn't want enmity between her parents and myself.

I can't say I have, however, my girlfriend hates the fact I live 20 minutes away, but in reality, it's nothing!

I have a close that's in a long-term relationship with a girl that's in another county, he lives in the UK and she lives in the US, so, very long distance! They're working out okay though.

I think it really depends on both parties commitment, if they want it to work, they can make it work.

 I am from and living in the USA but my girlfriend is in New Zealand!

 It's tough being apart from the one you love, but it definitely helps us that we know that we'll be living together in a year. Having clear set goals are a major component to having a long distance relationship.

The longest long distance relationship that I have been in was with my ex, I was with him for a period of 2 years, but it was truly long distance, he lived the other side of the world.

We regularly skyped and such, but then decided that in time, we just weren't compatible, so, we ended the LDR.

Maybe it would've been different if we lived closer, but it just wasn't meant to be, unfortunately!

I have never been in a long-distance relationship. The longest time I have been away from my partner is one month. This one-month separation occurred twice in four years relationship. Once I was away from him and once he was away from me. When we were away, we talked at least once a day on the phone. We talked about one hour.

The longest distance relationship I’ve been in is three years.  We meet on the internet in a chat for customer service for the company where I was working; he was a good client for the company and used to contact the company frequently so we became friends. He gave me his email and we started to talk more this way without the pressure of my job.
He was married then but his marriage didn’t last very long, after five years of friendship he broke up with his wife cause she lost the interest on him and she asked for the divorce, he was very depressed and kept like that for almost two years. Then he started to flirt with me but I wasn’t into him, we had a good friendship but that was all and I had a boyfriend. He started to date to other girls for a while and two years later I broke up with my bf after having a horrible and toxic relationship, I was very depressed and I decided to stay alone.
I was like that for ten months, and during that time I got closer to my friend and he told me he had feelings for me and he wanted a chance, then I thought why not?
I wasn’t sure at first about this new relationship but he was good for me and very supportive, he came to my country couple months later and we had a great time together, we felt very attracted physically and that made even stronger our relationship. He had to come back to his country, but he always visits me on vacations. I need to get my visa to meet his family and friends and see if we can live together there because that’s part of our plan for the future.
The conclusion I got is that close relationships are not a warranty of happiness, I think they work well as long as they are balanced and both people are honest and caring, but in some, relationships you feel your soul mate is far away from you been so close, which is ironic.  We have been together for almost 3 years and during all this time we have grown up, we are supportive, caring, and we have a great communication channel.
The harder part is feeling that we are physically very far from each other, but the distance problem can be solved. What can’t be solved is been in a relationship with a person who that doesn’t appreciate you, doesn’t care about you or is not good for you and just hurt you.

This was about my ex.At first we're not LDR since he was my neighbor (the boy next door). After about one year and eight months we have separated as we have encountered several problems about family. We're both living here in Philippines but his home is located in Palawan. I am originally born in Cagayan de Oro but I'm currently living here in Bulacan. Palawan is a separated island away from Luzon. We were LDR for about 2 months and I can say that it was so hard especially if you used to seeing each other lately but then suddenly happen to separate each others presence.

after I failed for two different boys I fell in love with a foreign man, I can say its not fake he did fall in love with me. just that it's because we have different nationality we have to face many difficulties such as parents because our parents might not accept each other due to we are so much different with each other ,  future because we both still a student and he is not good in class, he is afraid after migration he will just going to ruin my life instead of giving my every day needs, and other things like culture and many more. yet, although we are still with each other in the past two years we're still finding a way.

I am currently in long distance relationship. I am studying in our province while he is working in the city. In our 2-year relationship, I can say that it is not that easy. Both of you need to work with each other for your relationship to work. We need to trust and be loyal to my boyfriend for our relationship to work. No secrets. Committed. We always keep in mind that distance is just a number that will never hinder us on being together, may not be physically but on hearts, we are always together.

My long distance relationship lasted for half a year. The relationship didn't work out because he found a girl who goes to the same university as him. I didn't know that while we were in a relationship he was courting the other girl. I decided to let him go. He was someone I truly like but then again he is just not for me.
