Congrats LongTimeMother for making such decision. I think both parties (in a relationship) should compromise and decide to live together. Thank you!
Your story is very common! So many high school sweethearts go to distant colleges and end up breaking up. The reality is it was unrealistic to expect teenage students to cut themselves off from people and social activities on campus because of LDR
yeah, i see that now. that's why i was saying that maybe we were too immature then, because we just blindly went for it without even considering all the other factors.
Mostly happens to teenagers who happen to be in a long distance relationship. With that age I guess, LDR is difficult to work cause there are so many things to focus on like studies. Both parties are immature that's why it ends up easily.
Hey Astralrose! I guess I posted this question to reveal your love story here on HP. Lol. Honestly I asked it here to know how possible is to have a long distance relationship which ends to marriage. Well, it depends on many factors as you said.
Hello Astralrose. I gleaned hope & more from you. I have a long distance relationship with a dear friend. We are supportive of each other with endeavors & daily struggles. I would like to relocate living near yet separate. 3-1/2 yrs offers ho
Seems like distance is not a barrier to a relationship nowadays due to the advancement of communications technology. Glad to hear that it went to a very successful marriage! Thanks for dropping by.
Hello Thief12. Even though across an isle & not across an ocean you share hope. Thank you. IM is foreign to me, phone expensive & a visit may be a lifetime event so timing may be critical if not moving. I see research ahead of me. thanks :)
Yes, you're right, having a plan is really important for a long distance relationship. Well, what I really want to ask is this: what did you do to make the relationship last long, and end up to marriage. Thank you so much!
jemuelO, It's not about what "you do" but rather how "you feel". If two people (feel) they are "in love" they will make plans to be together as soon as possible. Until then they visit, call, write/email, SKYPE, mail gifts. Within a year I moved!
Hello dashingscorpio defintions are important with relationships of any type - personal, business & etc. I ponder the past considering before the telegraph yet after the pony express & the Calif gold rush. I ponder as maybe a hopeless romanti
Sorry to hear about that Borsia. There are some relationships that just don't work out as expected. But keep coming, you might find the right person for you. Thanks for sharing!
Honestly, I smiled reading your story. Having a blind date is cool, full of surprises. I guess having long distance relationship without active communication like SMS and emails is hard. Best wishes for you and your wife on your 33rd anniversary!
Thank you. You would be surprised at how much more a sentence written in longhand says than a text or email. However, cell phones would had been nice back then--I think we help build a new AT&T building somewhere with our combined phone bills.
