I think it can work if there is a good baseline and a clear plan and expectations. the longest I can last is 2 months (proven). Although I would start to feel the challenge after 2 weeks apart.


Well I'm in one now and all my past ones failed but that's because of big time differences and they weren't honest. You and I are completely honest with each other so I'm thinking we will last a while. And when we do meet it will be worth the wait



Suck, but are worth it. Mmm I could not see her till move in day and we would still make this work. Luckily, we get to see each other much more frequently!


I don't think they're impossible but they require a lot more planning and commitment than a relationship that isn't long distance. I don't think how many times you see each other necessarily matters but how much you value the time you do get together and the quality of time you get together. If two people are meant to be, distance will not keep them apart.
Ultimately, military relationships = long distance. As long as you're open and honest all the time, it won't be an issue in the end. It may suck, a lot... But, as long as you care for one another, it shouldn't be a problem.

They're hard but when you really love somebody you find a way to make it work regardless of the distance. I'm not certain about the second question. Of course I would want to see him all the time but I would just be grateful for whatever time I got with him.


I have always been open to the idea, though till now I never saw myself in one. Definitely a case of the right person makes it worth it. :)
I'm hoping to have it so it can be at the least every other month, working on that currently. >.<


It sucks. It's really hard, but we make it work somehow. We only see each other once and rarely, twice a year.


Hum... Bad ? It is a difficult time for us because we are now experiencing one. It has just started but I hope we will get through this. I think it is like a test that will makes us grow even stronger as a couple.


No creo en las relaciones a distancia. Necesito mucho el contacto físico.


It is not the best case scenario but he is worth every minute of it. I am willing to do whatever it takes to make it work and think he would, too. He seems to always find ways to visit and I would visit him as well. I have enjoyed seeing him every 2-3 weeks.


I could make a long distance relationship work if it was us, but it would have to be a temporary thing. I'd want to see you weekly.
Long distance is TOUGH. I agree a weekly visit would be mandatory. And I think your temporary would be very short time period.

I think my temporary would probably be one month. 😂

They can't work. Haven't seen many that do. It hard to love something when it not in reach.


I am in one..and as much as possible. The more often we see each other, the better, even if it's once a week.


I feel like it's a risk I'm willing to take as long as we are both all in and invested completely in the success of our relationship and are constantly doing what we need to do to make it a reality.
I'm absolutely invested all the way with you my love. It WILL become a reality forever and ever. ❤️
