Has anybody had any success with establishing and keeping a long distance relationship on this site? There seem to be some terrific people out-of-state or more than 200 miles, but I have found maintaining any relationship a challenge. Any ideas, suggestions, or advice?
I would say it depends on the people. Some people have to reach out and touch the person or there can be no relationship. Others can be on different sides of the earth from each other and establish a lasting relationship.
BUT you must meet the person at an early stage to make sure you are not building an emotional relationship on false information. It is easy to become emotionally involved without the early, in-person clues that would put brakes on the emotions.
You can have a successful LDR only with regular chats and communication and meetings as much as possible. It can be very incredibly romantic for the right couple- but there has to be an end in sight...meaning that one person will eventually relocate- or both will mutually relocate in a third city...
Just crusin by... Hope all is well.. So far as relationships and long distance?? Well... I've never had one.. but I too have difficulty sustaining one for any length of time. Mainly due to improper circumstances and jumping the gun wagon.. But Ima learnin... I think HONESTY is the most important factor... TRUST must be established on an all new level I feel for LDR to work..
Hope thing are going great for you... Let me know if you ever make it to Atlanta! :)
That's why you have your mone for. They help you to meet any person you like from any part of the world with no problem and support relationships farther. I you are looking for someone next door, why not to go and meet today instead of wasting time in front of computer?
