Happy Birthday Amy

I agree I think LDR's can work as long as both people work at them & both people communicate with each other & are honest with each other..... fluffy

I wonder as well about LDR's. I've had one with a gentleman here on CM, and that was two different countries to contend with Canada and the USA. I'd say that on the one hand it's wonderful to have found someone with whom you connect and feel a bond with but I would approach with caution...is there even the vaguest possibility that the two of you could end up in the same place? Is there a willingness and ability to relocate and get a new life, meaning gainful employment, deal with leaving family, uprooting children possibly? There's many "ifs" and if you're a package deal you cannot be selfish, you have to put the well being of your children first. LDR's can be lovely because it's so easy to maintain closeness through email, texting, talking on the phone, but the lack of physical proximity can be wearing and leave you pining away and wondering about the legitimacy of what you're doing. Having been there, done that, it's not so much the LDR in and of itself that caused the end of my try at it, but other causes for concern....So go in with your eyes wide open and enjoy that awesome connection that you have found. Best to you!

Hi Brenda!

Thank you for the Happy Birthday wishes! biggrin hug theheart

Yes, if both people really like each other best, respect each other, and have a realistic idea about and willingness to make the effort, a LDR can work very well.

I'm in one. It can be difficult even though we are both pretty flexible and portable. We get by in between visits with daily phone calls and bunches of emails. We have our little things we do like sharing articles we've read or sending youtube videos of songs that make us think of each other. The hardest part for me is that, being so far apart, I need to remind myself all the time that it's real. It's getting easier with time in some ways and harder in others.

I am currently at the beginning stages of one - and it has been just the past few months that I was even willing to explore this option. So far so good. I have to keep an open mind, keep praying and knowing one of us is going to have to eventually move if things keep going our way. I like it so far and I know I can do my part in it . It has been fun getting to know him and we are looking forward to our first F2F in early Feb. He is a sweetheart of a man and I hope this works out for us and I think it will. Always have hope hug

How sweet! lovestruck!


I think a long distance relationship might be an okay thing for just awhile---only awhile!...I want to get to know the REAL person and so many times there are emotions/chemistry etc. that can blind one upon first meetings. Of course those 'blinding, foggy feelings' feel very nice but I would like to keep a straight head! embarassed scratchchin heart

I'm in an LDR with someone I met here. We are 3 1/2 hours apart, which was well beyond the distance I was initially willing to consider. But we clicked on the first date and have been seeing/talking/Skyping each other for four months now. With two careers, six kids total, three houses, two dogs, and a cat, it's a bit complicated to figure out how it will all turn out. But we are hanging in there.
