    Absolute freedom, perfect faith and complete and implicit total trust and loyalty. This requires knowledge of oneself beyond what is obvious.

      That's an excellent answer! I have been through a long distance relationship, and I couldn't have said it better myself.

    Depends on the distance, of course....   

    Sometimes, I can get a girl to drive out to Makeout Point with me... but it's astounding how many times they end up jumping out of the car, slamming the door and screaming at me;  "If you think I'm going to ride home with you, after THAT suggestion, YOU'RE CRAZY!!!!!!" 

    She wouldn't go the distance with me......

    (Naturally Agreeing) on the major things in life and having the same goals for the relationship along with being madly "in love" with one another.
    There is no amount of (communication) or (work) that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want. People who agree with each other most of the time tend to stay together. Who knew?! :-)

    Contentment. Freedom.The ability to function separately and so when you come together you have much to discuss and share. Some people can function better that way. if you are independent and are able to trust is important. You are no co-dependent on the other for survival on a daily basis.

    Commitment, loyalty, trust, self confident and pure innocent love!!! That love that is blind enough that don't read statistics and deaf enough to don't listen other people experiences. Is a challenge to take and it is worth it!!!

    A self sacrificing love with a deep respect for one another.  Love is uncomplicated when both parties deny themselves in favour of the other.  It is a daily choice.
