    I'm in Europe and my BF is in America. Anyone have experience with long distance relationships? It's been really shitty thus far. I miss him like crazy, and communication and schedules make things so hard. Only one month into it and still got 8 MORE!!! Am I just a love sick fool? Or, has anyone out there had success with a LDR?

    Long distance is a deterrent to relationships. Outside of that fact you can't predict the outcome of individual cases. Keep in mind relationships are tricky enough without stacking negatives on them.

    as long as you both are on the same page 100% of the time it can work until you two are in a place to move together but it gets very tricky because one person is forced to give up where they are for the other person and sometimes people hold that against the other partner.

    It is very hard and there needs to be 100% faithfulness and trust in each other.. unless u both are ok with the whole open relationship thing which for me is not ok.. but it works for some people!!

    All in all they don't work, people can pretend to be someone they aren't and hide it through a long distance relationship and it takes longer for their true inner person to come out!!

    For me they don't work.. you need to have the right person to do it with!! I wouldn't be opposed to it again with the right person but it just complicates the relationship overall!!

    I just love these comments which lack flexibility.

    The truth is, it is hard, but it depends on the people involved and the will to make them work.

    Maybe I could rephrase that.

    It works until it doesn't.
