Can a long-distance relationship REALLY work out? We often begin relationships with a dreamy imagination, but in reality, there is a
necessary physical element that completes a relationship... so are people SERIOUS when they say they indicate that location doesn't matter? For example, it seems like transportation costs and travel time are forgotten about; that is, until the travel bill is $600 every time you meet the person. Then you have to plan weekends over a more squeezed schedule due to recovery from travel, etc. This, in turn, lessens the frequency of the
physical time spent together, etc. Sad, given the great pool of lovely, wholesome, and incredibly cute women on this site.
My brother was in a LDR Virginia/Chicago. They are now married with 3 kids.
A former roommate was in a LDR Virginia/Ohio. They are now married.
A former classmate was in a LDR LA/SD. They are now married with one child the last I heard.
I was in a LDR VA/NC that ended for reasons unrelated to distance.
Yes, they can work. They have certain hurdles that are specific to the nature of the distance but these can be dealt with. When there is a will, there is a way. If you approach a LDR as an expense instead of an opportunity, it's probably not for you.
