If you have a long distance relationship,

how do you make it a successful one??? Especially, when time and money constraints keep you from seeing each other as much as you would like to?????

Just curious....

cuml8er - How long for the contract???? Sounds like there is hope for a very long-term relationship out of this.

I have a long distance relationship at the moment. We live in different countries about 3000km apart. We talk every morning on msn about everything in our lives. It is a poor substitute for the way we talk snuggled up together after we have made love, but it keeps us together and while we are together there is always hope. I travel to see her every three or four months for a couple of weeks and the time together is incredible. When my contract is finished, if things work out, I will move back to be with her.

innocent19735 - Yep, but the burning decision factor is often... is it worth to turn the life upside down by leaving your job, friends, etc just to be close to someone else -- who just might decide in a few years that you're not enough for them. Then, you are in a pickle...

NickRules999 - Know what you mean. It is extremely tough when people don't tell you where you stand with them. I am sure I have missed out on some wonderful long term relationships just because I couldn't get them to say in so many words what they felt about the relationship.

Carpe Diem plays a role. If someone won't seize the day and moment with you to tell them exactly how they feel...then it is difficult for anyone to make a decision. I have been always real upfront with folks; it has been an eye opener to realize that not all people can be so upfront.

Oh, well....

I would rather have someone close by as well, honestly...

I wish I could say I was part of a successful one, but I'm not. I live in one part of the country, she lives in another. And what's worse, her ex moved back in with her. Problem is, she still wants to be with me, but with the current situation, I'm not sure I could be with her now. A few months ago, I would have though there was a chance for us. I don't feel the same way I used to. It hurt for a while. I actually became physically ill when I thought about it. Coz I didn't know, and I still don't know, where I stand with her. She tells me that she wants to be with me. I'm not sure it's possible now. I'd rather have someone close by.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

I was successfully in a relationship where we were 150 miles apart, not too bad, a little over a 2 hr drive but now the real test....she recently moved because of her job and now we're 1200 miles apart. Stay tuned....

You don't, which is why they suck.
