    I've been in a long distant relationship with my girlfriend since August. She's in the states at uni and I'm finishing my last year of college, looking to go uni (in the UK) in september.
    Being in a long distance relationship is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, not because I want to get with other girls or anything like that, because I miss her so much. If your worried about cheating on your girl because your off your head then you gotta sort out your priorities, I can control my drink, but if I knew that I tend to do things I regret when drinking, for the sake of the relationship, I'd control my drink - simple.
    You sound like you have doubts about being in an LDR, but if your girl meant that much to you, you'd know she's worth the wait and distance is merely an obstacle to overcome.

    i'm one more person in an LDR .. bin together for almost 2 years, altho we've been apart for around the same amount of time. we were best friends before we got together tho, n we really talked it thru. communication is absolutely essential. u need to be able to talk to ur bf/gf alot. my bf lives in singapore n i live on an island in the indian ocean (dont even ask me how far apart that is, but it's an 7-hr flight).

    its been incredibly hard and ppl have actually done things to try and get us to split up - for eg some x friends were telling my bf that i'd been cheating on him, which wasnt tru. luckily he believed me n we're still together. we see each other only twice a year for 2 weeks each time. but it's working out. both planning on heading to europe for our studies next year.

    lemme tell u if u're ready for that kind of relationship and the sacrifices that come with it, it's gonna work out. just believe in urself, n in ur gf, n always trust her no matter what.

    I'm not exactly in a long distance relationship, but I have 3 groups of really good friends; home town friends, school friends and uni friends. The home town and school friends are both about 200 miles away, and the home town friends have been 150 miles away for the last 8 years, and now moving to uni has moved them further away.

    All I do is stay in contact with them with the wonders of text and MSN and go and see them every so often, and we are all still really good friends.

    Well my girlfriend is about 150 maybe more miles away at uni and we've been doing this now for over a year and never have we been tempted to stray, just makes it extra special when the next time comes to seeing each other, i mean if you truely love her why would you want to stray, but word of advice don't get wasted because then you have no control over your body.
