    Do you think the distance make the heart grow fonder or make the heart wander?

    Do you think a long distance relationship will work will it be a disaster?

    Wander. I get lonely and start looking for friends. But I can never achieve any female friends so I get stuck with guy friends who advance. So I get more lonely and want a relationship since long distance doesn't feel like a real relationship to me. So far, it has always been a disaster.

    It really depends on the two people involed as to whether they grow fonder or wander. Generally speaking "long distance relationships" are meant to be (temporary). The goal for most couples is to be in the same home or town at some point. (LDRs are usually the result of circumstances and not choice.)
    The best LDRs are those with a deadline for when the couple will be together permanently. The people involved also take turns visiting one another frequently and have contact throughout the day via phone, email, skype/webcam....etc
    Having said that if a couple is young for example just graduated from high school and attend different colleges... odds are they will end up splitting. It takes a lot of maturity to be in a LDR. Eventually students socialize with those on campus, pleding fraternities/sororities, which often leads to froming new relationships. Young people also usually lack the finances to travel frequently to visit one another.
    Another major challenge is when the couple has disagreements. It easier to ignore someone when you are angry in a long distance relationship and it much harder to "make up"  without physically being able to hold one another.

    Just like 'dashingscorpio' said, it depends totally on people and circumstances. I have travelled on the other side of the world to 'have a distance from someone who became close to me' but after I have returned ten years later, I have realized that time and distance mean nothing, the closeness is still there.
    On the other hand, you can live with someone for a very long time and yet although physically close, you will never get close on any other level....
