Long Distant Relationships

Posted by Walkalot

Hello...

How does anyone feel about long distant relationships?... whether its 100miles apart or 1000? Do you think it can work out?

nogutz : I would think if it were not to work out,stocking shouldn't be a issue.One positve I guess!

Bill : Hello walkalot,There are many different manifestations of 'relationship'. Unless you desire a physical relationship I cannot see any reason why physical distance should be an issue. The question of whether it will work out can equally be asked even if you are very close in geographical terms. If you find someone with whom you can converse in a mutually acceptable way, then this is a relationship that should be cherished for what it is. Whilst it is working , it is working out. Best wishes Bill

Pittsburghgirl : Yes, I feel a long distance relationship has a good chance of working out. If both people are drawn to each other for whatever reason, there is a chance. It is worth taking the chance.

DH : They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder.Along with the anticipation of seeing each other again.I have never had a long distance relationship.But it sounds very romantic and exciting. Good luck! Donna

Franicaa : I used to think so because it actually almost happened for me, but it depends on the other person. I was more than happy to try and make it work, but you can never rely on them feeling the same way, mostly because you don't spend all day with them. I am talking about a huge distance though (UK-USA) so maybe if you're closer, you'll be able to meet up more often and keep the relationship going.Good luck and best wishes :) x

mild_mannered_super_hero : long distance is great for pen pals, it is a poor risk for a long term romantic relationship.if you do fall hopelessy in love, then what?? one person must relocate...what about your job, your home, your family?? there are many things to consider. i wish you well, but think things thru before hand, and have some kind of plan.

Xerxes : Long distance relationships do present problems that are not part of geographically close ones. These have been described above. In either case the basis for success in my opinion is honesty. Game playing, charades etc can occur whether you live around the corner or 2000 miles away.Hey Mooz ! How U B?

marjucca 100 : Hi Walkalot.I met my husband in Malta where he was on holiday from the UK.We kept a long distance relationship for some time. He came back to Malta we got married and we settled in England where my two kids were born.We lived about 13 years in the UK very much in love.I am glad to say that now we settled back to my lovely sunny island of Malta and we are still happy. So dear friend a long distance relationship does work.
