    most of my friends tell me that long distance relationship can't be long.actually i think maybe i have to believe it, because i have just broken up with my BF.we don't live in the same city.our universities are too far away that we can't meet each other even in one year.
         do most boys or men can't bare it?
         i want to know your ideas on it.

      Don't ever start long distance relationship. I have seen too many cases of failure.

    Some people are scared to meet real people and they have courage only behind the computer. For years, they may be living a virtual relationship without having a real date.

        but i think that's not common.most of us who keep a long distance realationship really want to have  real dates and we extremely hope to stay together.
          generally those lovers just can't bare the long time and distance they have to face.

        i personally think long distance relationships can work. if both make an effort in the relationship. if it is love it should last.

    I went away to college in South Carolina. That was 652 miles away from my boyfriend. We were apart for 9 months. We saw each other as often as we could... sometimes not seeing each other for a couple months at a time. We've now been together 4 years smile I'm not going to lie... it was really hard. I thought about him all day every day. But can it work? Of course. It totally depends on the couple and how strong they are. smile If you need some tips let me know!

    True Love does not fear a long distance, the feelings in the heart travel much faster than any aeroplane.

    I believe that True Love can endure all things...for me individually, I do not believe in true love.

    My opinion is dont do it, i had a successful long distance relationship..although we were only apart 4 months - buts its so very uncommon, avoid being possessive, drop the titles, and be whatever works in your situation

    Also, don't forget our many military service men and women. Their own relationships are long distance. hmm I would not disapprove of the possibilities...as Colebabie said, it depends on how strong and committed the couple are to the relationship.

    Sometimes long distance relationships are a necessity if you are married to someone that has to travel for work, but these are not conducive for when you first start dating someone.  I dated a guy who lived far away, and I think we had a false sense of intimacy because of phone conversations, but not really spending enough time together. 

    The best advice I have heard about long distance relationships is to make a a short term goal to start spending more time together.  If that means moving near by the person to get to know them better, then so be it!  How can you really get to know someone if you live far away?  However, once people are married of course they have to travel for work and such, but I could not get to know someone I never saw.  The Internet and the telephone cannot replace one on one face interaction.

    If they be two, they are two so                                         
        As stiff twin compasses are two ;
    Thy soul, the fix'd foot, makes no show
        To move, but doth, if th' other do.

    And though it in the centre sit,
        Yet, when the other far doth roam,                               
    It leans, and hearkens after it,
        And grows erect, as that comes home.

    Such wilt thou be to me, who must,
        Like th' other foot, obliquely run ;
    Thy firmness makes my circle just,                                   
        And makes me end where I begun. 

    John Donne.  They thought it could work in the Renaissance, too.

    I feel there are too many temptations for people when they are far away from thier partner to sustain a meaningful relationship.  Everyone needs to feel thier partner's love and touch and when they can only rely on emails, phone calls and pictures, your needs for affection and physical touch grow.  This leads to the end of the relationship.
