    Love knows no distance, so why are so many freaked out about long distance relationships?

    Been told to date someone very close but in my opinion being away from each other makes you want them more, makes the time you have so much better. So why are so many freaked out about this, do we really expect love to come from someone just because they are close?

    I believe that distance makes the heart grow fonder. However, you don't need to be distant enough, even if you are close not to appear like the scooter in the cartoon "Speed Bug" who is constantly telling chopper "I told cha" as if he was scooters conscience. THat in my opinion is pushing someones buttons, then you act like my grandparents

    I don't think we expect love to come from someone that is in close proximity, but it does help. Love can happen at anytime. If it's true love it will work.

    Distance does make the heart grow fonder if your hearts in the right place.

    It's not that people get "freaked" out about them
    it's just that they just work in both people's minds

    You spend a majority of the time apart
    So are you really a pair?
    When a relationship by definition means getting to KNOW someone intimately
    how is a "long Distance" relationship anything else but wishful thinking

    I used to follow something like a "20 minute or 20 mile rule" and dated only guys who lived within those parameters. I would amend that rule now - for one guy on RJ - and if we hit it off, we'd fly back and forth to see each other - or, I'd buy a house or condo in his city - and have a bi-state situation. I think long distance relationships can work beautifully. I have friends who have them - and they said, "If we saw each other every day, we'd be at each other's throats - but seeing each other infrequently means we toast each other with champagne!"

    My friend told me about a Mexican dicho:

    Amor de lejos, amor de condejos. (long distance love is rabbit love)

    another version:

    Amor de lejos, amor de pendejos. (long distance love is asshole love)
