    For me a relationship is a test of once's character trying to mold with another. While dealing with factor such as family,friends,location,belief,custom,financial stability and ofcourse distance.

    So this question will have different answer for different people. smile  Just my opinion.

    Personally, it wouldn't work for me. I think a relationship is about  being together, enjoying that person, building something... If that person is away how can you enjoy her?... But that's just me... Perhaps other people find it healthy...

    We've been apart for almost 3 years now..But that doesnt make me or him love each others less. Still going strong and waiting for the day when we say I do. and settle on our hometown permanently. smile

    I am not going to lie because in a lot of relationships that live far away like say  5 hours away then you or your boyfriend might find themselves cheating on the other because they haven't seen there girlfriend in for so long and naturally every girl and boy has there needs but that doesn't give them the right to cheat. of course if you are at least 1 hour away then it should be ok , considering the fact that you can always save up the gas money to see each other for a special day you can also buy a web camera two of them they are at least $30.00 each give one to your girlfriend or boyfriend and talk to them and then you should be good because you are keeping tabs but you could also meet half way and then make that night the most special night of your life reminding your needs that you are loyal so it all depends on how well you both put your efforts into it. I hope this helps.

    I do not think so. Space is good, but not long distance. There is always too much wondering what they are doing and you want to spend time with them but you can't. Distance, money, and bills can break a relationship. If a relationship can survive that, than good for you, but most will not.

    I did the long distance things twice, both guys only lived at a max two hours away. It wasn't worth it because they were the wrong guys for me to be messing with in the first place. Long distance relationships take having a strong heart and two loyal people who mature enough and honest enough to make it work.

    My boyfriend and I had a relationship between Chicago and Buffalo after he moved from Buffalo. We had been dating off and on for five years. He was a player as I soon learned. It never worked, and he broke my heart and another girls heart I would advise against long distance relationships. He married a girl from Chicago, the new city of his dreams. I guess nobody holds on to girls from Buffalo. LoL

    I think long distance relationships can work out very well for the right personalities. i tend to  be very independent and I like alone time. A long distance relationship works well for me. I know others, however, who need a lot more together time. I think they would be better off living quite close to their love interest. Perhaps a 5 minute walk away would be space enough!

    It is a healthy relationship, as long as the communication lines are open and both parties know & understand how a long distance relationship works.

    With the technology advancement, we can travel round the world within a few hours to 20 hours of flight. So, I do believe that relationship in long distance does not really matter. It is your feeling of love and the bonding whether strong or not.

    If you are meant to be together, long distance will never be a problem. Eventually you will be with the one you love and then decide where you want to stay.

    Long distance relationship could be a healthy one if both lovers have trust one another and their communication is constant. These two things are likely the basic foundation of all for a successful relationship.
