Yes, long distance relationships can work very well. It can be tiring if you have too many on the go at the same time though so build up slowly.
Long distance relationships - can they ever work?
Lol.. nicely done
Worked fine for nearly 10 years (Paris/Wales)...... Only took 4 years of living together for the wheels to fall off spectacularly!!
Too independent by that stage I guess :0/
Won't bother again!!!!!!!
Ta wallop. She's quite sensitive not to hurt me because she understands what hurt I've experienced. I just told her that my heart is my responsibility. Currently my heart is telling me not to let her get away
Last time it felt like this, I was 19
Many years ago I went out with a German lass at university. We did a long distance relationship for about 4 years or so. It involved getting the 03:25 train from York to Manchester on Saturday morning, then the 07:45 flight to Munich, then various trains. Then reversing the process a few days later.
We only saw each other a few times a year and it was a bit intense. This was in the days before cheap flights and cheap phone calls so it was quite difficult to do on a weekly wage of £118.
I particularly remember one Easter trip where it all seemed to be falling apart due to the stress and I was genuinely wondering if there would be a next trip.
Anyway, getting to the point, we're just about to buy our third house together almost 20 years later and have two kids
Lol @ 40 miles being long distance
Do it, life is too short
I've done :
Stourbridge to Durham, Leeds, Shaftesbury, Rochdale, London etc etc (not all the same person!) and the distance wasn't an issue at all
Fingers crossed for one starting in Bristol, very early days yet
