    How do you manage long distance relationships?

    My aunt who's a professor at a university is married to a professor at another university. Her school is in Iowa, his is in Texas. But schools are out in the summer and they'd be together during the summers so that makes it easier. He's since retired and moved to Iowa, where he got a position at her school (he's a big name in their field and everybody wants him).

    10 miles is a general limit. I tried dating a guy that lived 40 miles away. Add LA traffic. And yeah.. didn't last long.

    This sounds too much like a math problem. I hate math.icon_evil.gif

    my current BF and I used to live about 80 miles apart from each other (by road). our schedules actually lined up pretty well, where on his days off he'd come up to my place and my days off i'd go down to the city where he lived. we saw each other 3-4 days out of the week in a row. wasn't too bad at all.

    deploying for 7 months , now *that* sucked.

    but it was much nicer once he moved in!

    In NYC or LA, (even in SF) it is easy for a potential date to be geographically unacceptable.

    There is no limit to the distance if he's willing to come to me once a year... or even once.
