I'm not in one, now, but I have in the past. The distance was part of what eroded the foundation of my last relationship, but I've had others that were ultimately ended for total separate reasons.

Currently in one that's two days away from its second anniversary (which is a huge deal to me)!

This is my (and his) first one, and, I must say, it's better than all of the other relationships I've had that weren't long distance. That said, it's not for everyone, and it's not my preferred style of relationship.

It sucks but I know I'm not the only mother to hate the fact that her child's father is only home a few months out of the year. At least we have skype!

It is hard enough working a couple hours away and not being able to see each other at lunch or anything. I cannot imagine being in a long distance relationship.

I was in a long distance relationship for about a year. I started dating my partner in high school, and ended up going to college about 250 miles away. It was ok, and we did alright. We talked on the phone a lot. But in the long run, I transferred to a local college so we could be together more.

It was something I have been a part of in the past. I lived in the midwest and he lived in the east. We made it work for almost a year then I moved to be with him. It isn't something I would do again though. I know what I need from my partner and those things can't be accomplished or fulfilled *for me* in a long distance relationship.

Tried it once, but long distance relationship doesn't work for me.

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm assuming it's a military deployment situation? I'm part of a military family and I was used to not seeing my father for 6 months at a time. It can be stressful but thank god for the advancement of technology!

I've been in relatively long distance relationships in the past, where we only saw each other on weekends if that depending on our schedules. It was part of what eroded the foundation of the relationship, but also what kept it going as long as it did. Had we been spending all of that time together we'd probably have ended things a lot sooner.

I was in a long distance relationship with my first husband when he moved away.

I go to school 2.5 hours away and my man works the late night shift at work so we don't see each other very often. The only reason we even risked a long distance was because this is my last year and we only had to deal with it for 8 months. Successful long distance relationships take a lot of communication and consideration of each partner's needs. Month and a half left!

My boyfriend and I did the LDR thing for about 4 months while we were house hunting, it worked pretty well for us.

That's how I met my guy, online. We were in a LDR for 13-14 years? We've been living together the last 2 years. I think we're doing fine.

Wow, that's a long time to wait!

I do believe these sorts of things do work out, it's just not for the faint of heart. I'm pretty sure I couldn't handle it.

Not currently but with a change in colleges it will put me and my girlfriend several hours apart. I believe it is a lot easier now for the simple fact you can text each other constantly and then with webcams can video chat.

Have been in a couple including my current relationship. It was very hard for my current partner. We'll be living together soon, but without that to look forward to, I think we'd both be pretty miserable in a continued long-distance relationship with seemingly no end.

I am in one. He's in in the Marines, currently in Japan. It's hard, but it's still worth it.
