    I would appreciate some advice on making a long distance relationship work. I met someone on line. They live 100 miles from me we have met for a couple of dates over the past 3 weeks and get on well. We would like to take it further but it's hard to find time to meet up we both study/work during the week and our weekends are full with activities. If I was dating someone in the same town we could meet in the evenings after work//uni but I can't just pop down the road for a 100 mile each way trip.

    We do share a lot in common, but I am trying to get it in my head how we can meet up more with 2 busy lives.

    How old are you

    1. Good communication
    2. Accept its not the same as a relationship where you are in close proximity, so understand the differences.
    3. That means a different sort of relationship.
    4. That will mean less stress and it will last longer.

    You either get it and can cope or you dont and it wint last.

    Others would say have an end game in mind .

    Talking from experience.

    - Communicate often, whether that be via Skype, Email, Phone, Text etc. Talk often.
    - Trust. You need trust in a relationship, LDR's move-so, so learn to trust your partner.
    - Value the time you have together. Plan events and activities, do stuff together when you're able to be together.

    Not much different from an ordinary relationship really, just requires more thought and patience.
