What are your opinions on long distance relationships?

I'm considering going into one at some point, and I'm wondering what your opinions are.

I have been in two long distance relationships. Although I don't regret them I do realize now I missed out on a lot of opportunities my first few semesters in college because of them.

They are hard to do and sometimes in the long run, you both become hurt.

I'm in my second year in a long distance relationship right now, and I'll be honest with you - they are NOT easy. That's not to say they can't be worth it, but you and your partner will both need to be ok with making some sacrifices and trying harder at some things than you may be used to. Communication and trust are both incredibly important (this is true in any relationship, but particularly long distance ones).

If you've got specific questions, feel free to ask me - I'd be happy to share advice!

I'm a college student in a long distance relationship now, and I'd partially agree with that - when you're in college you meet so many new people that could be missed opportunities for relationships. I'd feel even worse about the missed opportunity for a relationship with my partner if I gave up on the long distance relationship for something unknown, though - so I'd say long distance relationships are worth it if you both know it's what you want. I don't regret not having the freedom to date someone nearby in college - but I know I'd regret it if I didn't choose to date my boyfriend.

It's hard, but it can definitely be rewarding. It helps a lot to have a definite time when it becomes a close relationship.

It's definitely difficult. Doable for some though. =]

GONE! GONE!
It works best if you can see each other at least a few times a year.

I just left a one-year LDR. We lived near to each other for 6 months as best friends. A few months after he left (4 hours away) we started dating. It was great at first but then the visits went a month to once every 2 or 3 months. Slowly but surely neither of us could handle it anymore. We are still best friends and would think about dating again in the future if our paths bring us closer together.

It is hard to do. I am in one right now and have been for 2 years. We lost ways not on my part but on his at one point. I tried to see other people but that did not work out. All they wanted was sex and I don't get done like that. My heart was also still with my current partner. Then we reconnected and have been together since. This is not the only one I have had the rest were good until issues arose in the relationship.

I'm in college in my 3rd year of a long distance relationship. It's hard but really worth it. The worst part is getting into fights, if he doesn't want to pick up the phone to fix it when you do, there's not much you can do in an ldr but the best part is seeing him again. Plus you get to have a "my" social life instead of only an "our" social life which can be nice

Like everyone else says, it's hard. But if you really love and care about each other, you can make it work. The more often you can see each other, the better. Knowing that at some point it will stop being long distance is what keeps us going.

It's very hard--but it can work. The best advice I can give is to know it's over when it's over (if that happens): I spent a long time in a horrible relationship that I knew was over halfway through, but I drug it out because I convinced myself things would be better or different once we met in person. While sex is a great way to relieve minor squabbles, the reality is, if you're fighting every day online or on the phone... "In-Person" isn't going to change that. It's hard, but it's important to remember.

My current relationship is a year and a half going VERY strong and we're going to be moving in together in... 12 days! I'm thrilled beyond all belief and so ready.
