Long Distant Relationships

Posted by Walkalot


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! Nov 29, 2011
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 Nov 30, 2011
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. Nov 30, 2011
Past Member: Hi there Walkalot, As a long time internet user and making my first friend online in the 90s, we're still great friends and have met up on several occasions. We're still the very best of friends. This is a long distance friendship - Ireland / Connecticut. I also use my email for keeping in touch with all the friends I made while working and traveling the globe. So, no reason for a relationship to work, especially in these days when communication has become more affordable. Best of Luck, Colm Nov 30, 2011
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 Nov 30, 2011
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 Nov 30, 2011
Past Member: I suppose it could work out if both persons are really dedicated to each other,being miles apart can make it harder to meet up. I agree with franica,being closer makes it easier to meet up. Good luck ambies... Nov 30, 2011
Walkalot : Thanks for the comments x Nov 30, 2011
Past Member: I wouldn't generally recommend it. But with the right person, ANYTHING is possible............. Too bad the GPS doesn't come with a crystal ball....LOLBEG Dec 02, 2011
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.

mooza : Yes i agree with these answers you never know what the other person could be up too as well... But you never know long distance could turn around quite easily and become closer it can and has happened on this site Congrats to you both DG and your new wife debwend xx mooza xx Oh hope too maybe see you here in Melbourne some day xx Dec 02, 2011
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? Dec 02, 2011
Past Member: Exactly hit the nail on the head. Dishonesty runs rapid and is far reaching, no matter it's location. Distance does allow more opportunity for deception in the hands of the wrong person, but can be a hidden blessing when trying to escape. Just saying, LOL.......... BEG Dec 03, 2011
tommy 6644 : distance is only that which you have placed between yourself ...and your dreams Dec 06, 2011
Walkalot : Awww.. how nice Tommy. Dec 06, 2011
Past Member: Great love and great achievement involve great risk.....Dalai Lama Dec 06, 2011

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. Dec 13, 2011
Past Member: With confidence, unconditional love, trust, acceptance, (total committment to one relationship), founded in truth and honor, without personal attacks, disrespect, judgements or selfish demands, in addition, the willingness to compromise and stand together against the obvious obstacles with devotion and patience...........ABSOLUTELY IT CAN WORK. Congratulations my friend..You got exactly what you deserved, because you did the work, and did it well..............................................Not everyone has the strength, but for the right ones, like you............SALUTE !! I'm trying it again as well....My heart says it's worth it and so far, it's been right !!! Wha-HooBEG Dec 14, 2011
zeppo : I hope that out there somewhere is a gentleman of strong values who can honor my good friend Beg with a lifetime of happiness.She is at the very least worthy of this is guided by a very very special star for she is second to none. Dec 14, 2011
Past Member: Awwwwwwww, I love you my sweet man.......You never cease to amaze me...Thank you sooooooo much. I've met a very special man. I pray you're hopes transcend distance. You're wonderful...Always, BEG Dec 14, 2011

CuriousSoulAstray : Friendships are much easier than romantic relationships, lots to consider in a long distance relationship. Jun 20, 2018
magoo : Hi there ....long distance relationships can work .. it's currently working for me and my Lady friend . I am in Ireland and she lives in Silicon Valley , San Jose Ca. The times we've had together were a lot of fun. I think it's good not to be stuck to each other 24 hours a day !!?? Meeting after a long absence can be so much fun....especially when sex is possible and it is for us . The fun we have when we meet makes up for the temporary loneliness .
It can work if you hang in there . Eamon.
