Yes. For one thing...there is a lot of dialogue ( or should be)...that is a good thing. Skype makes communicating much easier in this day and age. This type of relationship takes much longer to develop...or at least should take longer,
It is difficult if the distance involves international travel across borders or a very long distance that takes more than a day's drive... That can prove very difficult for working couples with limited vacation time and resources! Think what you can do financially and practically (there are only so many hours in a day)
Then there is the ultimate decision of who will move if the relationship progresses.
Not for the timid or for people who "don't think" before they leap.
One has to think through all the possibilities..."What if it doesn't work", (for instance...then what?)
Personally I do not think a long distance relationship can work for the majority of people (because of the pitfalls) unless they are already married to each other and the other has to travel for work.
However, if the long-distance pair are not huge "party animals", are patient and think actions out carefully and cautiously; have enough time to arrange visits and importantly; make time to communicate every single day, sharing the ordinary aspects of their lives; then for the right people, it can work!
