Default Long-Distance Relationships.

Have you ever been in a long-distance relationship or known anyone that were? If so, what are your experiences and opinions on it?

If you have never experienced one directly or in-directly though, do you think that they are like any other relationship or less serious and casual? Do you think that they can work out and that distance could be closed or do you have a negative view on it?

Discuss.

No, not as in lovers experiences.

If you mean long-distance relationships like 'brothers-sisters', then yes.

now this is kind my of my post =o

ON-Topic: i did exp. alot Long distance relationship but almost al of them didnt owkr out because you rly dont that person you love is doing on the other side of the screen. I have a online bro whos being going out with this girls for nearl 3 years o_o;;; (awesome to me=o) but there is where true love will take affect due to you might feel a connection on the person you love. My option on Long-distance relationship it's ok if you pick the right person. you just got to hang on to the person you rly love. though alot disagree with long distance relationship tell you the truth its rly your way to find "True Love"

After I saw her face, I quit the game and changed my email.












Nah, joking lol. I never had an affair. But this is what I think is quite possible in an online relationship

Actually, that's how it goes a lot of the time. When you have feelings for somebody you've met online, you're taking a big risk there. For example, people can look entirely different from how they look in real life and how they look online. (Image enhancing programs, or might just end up not being that person at all.)

There's also a big chance that the person you meet could be entirely different than how they are online. I've met a lot of people who can seem like the nicest person via aim or some other chatting program, and they just turn out to be a total jerk in real life.

But that^ goes both ways. Somebody that you know online of whom could be a total jackass might end up being the nicest person in real life - You never really know.

My personal experience tells me this is not gonna work, but thats me cause I really cant trust somebody "at the other side of the screen".

And honestly... what Eternal said... I did do that to one girl one time, not cause I saw her face but cause of what she told me.... it was really gross! believe me.

It really depends on the person.


I have a long distance relationship... and we've been together for 2 years.

If you're expecting a lot from a person I really don't recommend it. D:

It seems to be more casual than what I see from my friends. I told them about my boyfriend, and theyre find with it. xD

Even some of my friends talk to him too. :O



But... I don't know. Long distance isn't for everyone. Since everyone has different ideasof what they want in a bf/gf. For say you're clingy... >_> Well, whatcha expect from that? :O






P.s. I hate Ms weddings. OMG. >_> They don't take stuff like that very seriously. o_O;

Online game marriage aint supposed to be serious, its a role play, its supposed to be "fun", dont use the marriage system to get a serious relationship X.X. It can get serious offcourse, but thats another story.

Im happy to hear about your long distance relationship and bout the way it goes, keep it up.

I don't think I can deal with long-distance relationships. For example, there's someone that I'm involved with, but we refuse to go steady because I'm moving away soon, and we don't wana deal with along-distance relationship. Too complicated. -.-

Well, I've never been in a long-distance relationship before...but I have friends that have been- or still are- in these relationships. Personally I think they could work out. I guess it depends what kind of a person you are, what kind of a "relationship" you want, and what you're willing to put up with to get it though.

On-topic: Not to boast or anything, but I'm living proof with Gati now that a long distance relationship works, in the case that anybody is cynical about it.

We were both very honest, reliable, trustworthy, sacrificing... It takes a lot out of you do make it work out, and the first steps are hardest and risky because you don't get the physical attraction out of the way until you get pictures traded off and/or actually meet them in person. The best ways to downplay these risks are voice chat and webcam/video chat, and I've been talking with Gati over Ventrilo on a daily basis and we've already met 2 times in person, the longest visit being nearly a month, and we're planning a 2 week visit in February. It's hard to plan these things out because we are nearly 5000 miles apart and it costs nearly $1000 for a roundtrip flight ticket.

However, if you meet them in person, if everything works out just fine, then it evolves into a deeper relationship because you know who they are and you can trust them. It starts to classify as a close relationship that has gone long-distance.

Long distance relationships aren't for everyone though, of course.
Just know what you want and what you can handle.
Don't start anything that you doubt yourself in.
