I think you would get a lot more responses to your posts if you put more thought into them. When they're one liners like this it doesn't really provoke a lot of discussion.

It's a relatively-straight forward question, but yes, more background would really help with answering it.

As for what I consider long-term, anything probably over two years. Or when the couple has made plans far in the future to be together.

I believe 3 or more yrs, because long term is long term i would even bridge the edge that long term is forever...

I think I'm with Mistress Kay on this one. If I'm talking about the future, it means concrete plans. If I'm talking about the past, I'd say 2 years sounds like a good place to start. It probably also depends on the age and experiences of whom I'm talking to, as well.

I've been in my current relationship for over 9 years. That being said, I considered us "long-term" after about two or so years.

Anything over the 5 year mark is what I, personally, consider long term. I suppose, to be fair, anything lasting longer than the year of lovely chemical cocktail your brain gets when you first fall in love could be considered long term!

Kind of going off what Airen Wolf said, I think if you're together past that puppy love stage... when going to one another's houses for holidays is a given and a future together is assumed instead of a mystery... that's when you hit long term status. I think this can vary greatly from person to person.

Anything past 1 to 2 years. Some peoples relationships progress more quickly than others, however I don't think it can seriously be considered long term unless you have been in it for at least a year.

I'd go with 4 - 5 years as long term!

i would say something between a year and three years would be the start of a long term relationship

Yeah, I'd agree that long-term is more about commitment and concrete plans more than anything.

The way I see it is this: a couple can be together for three years, but if they don't plan on making it a permanent thing and don't want to be together forever, that nullifies the 'long term' aspect of their relationship being three years long. Whereas a couple that has become super close within six months and has made plans/promises to be together permanently is something I see qualifying more for the status of 'long term', because even though 6 months isn't that long, that relationship is strong and has lasting potential.

Personally, on any level, I think it's fair to call something long-term after a year, but that may be because I'm in my early 20's and at my age, I've had a few long-lasting relationships that were superficial teenage ones and therefore don't count as much as the more adult relationships I've had...and at this point in life, that's generally how long it takes to develop something serious.

Once I make it past one year, I consider it long-term. Especially if I can see myself marrying my partner.

Long term can't be longer than that?

As for me, it's not the particular period of time, it's some feeling you get. I also agree with Kayla on the future and planning issues

Five years and up is long term in my opinion. Two to three months/years is yesterday and six months ago, to me.

2.5 years or more. That seems to be the breaking point for a lot of relationships so if you get past there, I think you've made it. Yes, it's stupid Cosmo logic, but I'm sticking to it
