3/4 times? That's quite a lot Is it available in english translation? i googled it and it used french


I still have the same copy of the book I used back in high school, but if you're interested, it looks like Amazon has several editions, relatively cheap. I treated reading it like I would any other script; it wasn't just about rote memorization, but character analysis. Fairly typical preparation, really.

It's difficult. Almost never works out for a long time.
But if the couple are determined enough, it can be pulled off. (^__^)

Been in one for a few years now, no problems. Well, other than being in school and not having enough money to move.

I would not do it. If I cannot see the lady somewhat frequently (at least weekly) then its not a romantic relationship in my book.

I have been in a long distance relationship for over three years now. I fell in love with my best friend at 18, and I'm now 22. We were able to date and stay close for a year, when our lives transitioning into adulthood threw us apart. We decided to keep it going though.

The obvious qualities are there. We love eachother, and we're able to resist temptation at least so far. Our feelings for eachother haven't dwindled at all. We share a lot of our interests and it keeps conversations easy and takes away some of the stress due to our deep understanding of eachother.

Part of the reason our relationship is so strong and resilient is because it is based on friendship. We are friends before we are lovers. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves of that. I've known her since I was 14. That accounts for half of the time we've known eachother being spent as nothing more than friends.

In honesty though, one of the greatest, and somewhat unexpected challenges, has actually been communicating. It's easy to harden up and try to push away the other person, even if your feelings don't weaken at all. We have to always make time for eachother, and usually for us it's in the form of webcamming for hours on end (in some ways this can sometimes satisfy our sexual attraction for eachother too, though I won't get into detail here.) Whenever we allow our everyday lives and our different sources of stress to get ahead of us and push our relationship to the side, it explodes with a lot of pent up anger. The four serious arguments we've had have all been because of lack of communication and not prioritizing eachother or being open about our feelings. For example, we reached a point where a lot of our communicating with eachother was just in one or two word texts, and during a time of hardship for both of us, it didn't allow us to portray how we felt to eachother and just lead to anger. We recovered afterwards and promised not to fall into the same trap again.

^ Another thing. We've made mistakes; we've screwed up, lost faith in eachother, broken promises, and gotten into as serious of arguments as anyone else, but we've always tried to heal our relationship instead of end it. So far, it's worked. We see eachother at most once a month, but every day we're connected by our thoughts until we can sit down and drink hot chocolate together in front of our computers - even though we're a thousand miles apart.


Right now, Morgan is wearing a promise ring on her right hand. It reminds her every day that in one year, when I finish my degree and can go to her, that I have already promised to devote my life and my love to her. We've had to wait a long time, but I will marry her when I have the means to support her and maybe a family between us. That's our story, and hopefully I've inspired someone reading it to take a chance. Don't harden your heart, but instead be willing to touch it someone else's. Find someone who you can trust with your feelings and then give them to him or her, and who knows, maybe it will turn out perfectly.

Good luck :3

i know a certain someone that held one for 3+ years. they eventually broke up because they couldn't visit each other in the in the distance, but even if they did they didn't have time to spend time with the other. they are passionate with the schooling and they have work and other duties. so they broke up, but are still madly in love, they skype less than before but still nearly on a weekly basis.

so it can work, just they have seperate priorities.

i know for sure they'll get back together after everything has blown over.

Just have to keep with it and visit as often as you can also knowing people where they live help ......But if you are really up for it and you can trust your partner it will all work itself out in the end. But where i lived in FL the girls in my school were all nasty and stuck up and crap so i improvised and found a much better girl

I personally don't think that long distance relationships work.
I really don't know why people decide to have a long distance relationship either.
Funny thing, I have a friend who had a LDR and eventually, the two got married. I still don't think a LDR is the best idea though.

They work if you're the type of people that can handle it. My bofyriend and I are LDR. Started off by simply flying back and forth to see each other, then we moved in together for a year. I quit my job and we had to move to separate states again and are back to the LDR thing until one of us is on a career path that can support the other until they're able to find employment in a new location.

Obviously it creates personal turmoil and I'm depressed out of my mind, but it hasn't weakened our relationship in the slightest and we've been together 4 years.

To say they never work out and aren't worth pursuing is not only ignorant but a complete denial of reality, especially considering how advanced and technological our society is getting(skype, cheap airfare).

I haven't been on the boards in about a year, but your topic perked my interest. I have spoken about my relationship on these boards many times.
I was in a LDR with a man I met on Crunchy roll I dated him Long distance for 2 years then moved from MI to IL where we are living now. We are going on our 3 years together and planning on getting married in a few months as well as we've been trying to start out family.

I was a huge non supporter of internet dating and LDR before I met my SO, I can say this experience has changed my point of view on it. I think being in a LDR might actually make your relationship stronger, if you can be mature and stick it out. It's not for everyone, but it helps if you have a goal at the end that your working towards.

Wish you the best of luck!!

50/50.

You can either have a really nice LDR or not. It depends on how much trust and love you have for each other. If you really did truly love each other and trusted each other then it would work out (:

I`m currently in a LDR right now, it works perfectly. The distance doesn`t bother me at all and he doesn`t live that far - same country, different city.

As long as true love is there and trust I don`t see why else it wouldn`t work. Distance shouldn`t matter if you truly love somebody..
