Long distance relationships do work, but they are more difficult to maintain. Many long distance relationships certainly do succeed, but they need careful navigation from the persons involved to enable it steer through the obstacles brought about by geography. The only stronghold such a relationship holds on is communication.
Well, I have a long distance relationship now, it's ok, not the best way to date though. Each time I want to talk to him on cam he's not on, but when I am not, then he is. It's difficult to contact each other, so I am thinking of just cutting it off unless he moves near where I live.
Yes. Long distance relationships work. The secret of success for that kind of relationship is 'communication'. The gap of not seeing each other should be covered by frequent communication. I have a friend of mine. He and his wife were far from each other for nine years. They kept in touch during that whole period. When they met for the first time, they decided to get married. As am writting this, this is the sixth year since they got married. So, it is possible, if each person is serious about it. It is possible. I have seen it happening.
It could, but usually one person or both will cheat on the other. Unless you've know that person for a long time, and you know you love them and they love you, I wouldn't recommend it. You'll see cute people pass you and you'll be like you want them, yet your in a relationship. You won't be able to be physical at all. If you're okay with these things and have complete trust in that person do as you will. However, you need to remember long distance relationships are only made to last about a year (three years at best). It is not some kind of thing you marry people on. After a little while you should be able to see this person again you shouldn't live in U.S., and he live in China after 4 years. I hope you can get what I am trying to say. Eventually, you do need to get back into similar living areas, or I do not think it will work out. I hope this helped :)
