Long Distance Relationships!!!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I'm in a long distance relationship. I live 1 hr away from her. I met her on Sunday 17, and we decided to start seeing eachother on the 19. I haven't even seen her since then. I haven't been able to touch her none the less kiss her.

What does everyone think, and what are your opinions on long distance relationships.

    Hmmm...look thru some of the older posts and there's a great big long topic on Long Dist Relationships, will dig it up for you in a sec.

    Basically, give it a go but remain realistic - don't be pessimistic about it, but dont try and keep it going when obviously it's not working.

    My personal opinions - I've been in a couple - girls I've met when I was over in the UK or summin, and never again will I bother. To me they caused too much anguish and emotional unrest. The fact that you love/like a person so much, but you can't see them.

    Anyway, hope this helps...

    I didn't lose my mind, it was mine to give away.

    yeah, you're right, an hour isn't that far. But its farther than 15 min away. I have to go all the way throught the city and then more to get to where she lives

    Normal? Why by normal? Especially when being wierd is so much fun.

    1 hour isn't really that far! How old are you? Can you drive or do you have to take public transport?

    Don't take life seriously because you can't come out of it alive

    i was in a long distance relationship for 16 months. like 180 miles which is 4 hours on a train. my feelings now abotu the little shit arent really very helpful but if you can trust each other and cope with not seeing each other as much (its hard, and also if you stay at each others houses seeing each other 24/7 isnt good either), then it'll work. although 1 hour isnt too much at all.

    It's better to regret things you've done than things you haven't.

    Glad you asked, cause I'm an expert on this topic!

    I agree with the others that long distance relationships are difficult and don't really work. Mind you, I don't even think 1 hour apart qualifies as long distance! Geez, it takes me that long to get to work in the morning or to drive to a friend's house. I think that you shouldn't look at the 1 hour as a barrier if you really care for this person. It's also hard when you are in the early stages of a relationship and you want to spend every waking second with each other. Luckily, that wears off pretty quickly.

    As for me, I had the ultimate long distance relationship...a long distance mariage! And not just different towns, different countrie, with a two day drive separating us!W e planned to live togther once we got married, but there were delays with the immigration paperwork, and we lived apart for most of our marriage. Funny thing is, we got along great when we both had the freedom of living apart. Once we lived together, we got on each other's nerves.We did it or almost 2 years, but I wouldn't reccomend it to anyone.

    Good luck!

    I kind of had a long distance relationship with a girl from the USA. I was 16 and we chatted on the net every weekend and we got on really well.

    I went over last Feb and we got on great. Then I borrowed £500 to go to the USA in August. I couldn't go to New York but Joy could come over here.

    I went to the bank with my mum and I transferred the money to her account. BIG MISTAKE!!! She bought her ticket and came here for 3 weeks.

    We got on well for the first week and then she just seemed to take advantage of me and we just didn't get along!!! She wanted something more serious but I just didn't like her anymore. So she went home after three weeks we don't speak now and I'm £500 worse off.

    Long distance relationships don't work but 1 hour is nothing!!! I guess it is difficult for you cause you are still in the early stages of your relationship as burnout_girl suggested.
