  • If BOTH parties are committed to each other.
    In my case it didn't work out. He cheated...a LOT.

  • it did for me and my husband when we first started dating... we would see eachother every weekend and lived two hours away from eachother.. and within 7 months we moved in together and got married 5 months after that.

  • It worked for me.  I lived in Canada and he lived in England.  We've been married for 22 years.

  • before we were married, my husband and i maintained a steady relationship while he was deployed for 15 months. before the deployment, he lived 6 hours away in georgia and we managed to do it then too. yes i think they can work.

  • Some do. My husband and I did a LDR when I transferred before he did. We managed and are still together. It all depends on how much work both parties are willing to put into the relationship and the level of trust. If there's no trust, it's hard to have a LDR. I have had bad ones before.

  • Yes, if you both are committed and want to make it work. it is hard, but make time for eachother to call/video chat. Reply to eachother's texts and send eachother surprises in the post :)

    And...try not to focus on how hard it is to say goodbye, but how lovely it is to say hello and kiss him again on his return :)
