What is the longest and furthest you would do an LDR for?Watch
And how long for, a year, a few etc.
I'm currently an 8 hour plane journey and an hour train journey from my boyfriend. At this point, I could be anywhere in the world from him, and we'd make it work - but a few hours train journey would suit me far better!! We've not put ourselves on a timeline, but I'm hoping to move to be with him about a year an a half after we started the distance. If there's no goal for closing the distance, or it's years and years away, I wouldn't want to be a part of it. There's so much effort and loneliness involved that I wouldn't put myself through it if there wasn't a closing date in sight.
I suppose its easy to say how far you'd be willing to accept if its just hypothetical, but say you actually fall in love with someone far away that could completely turn what you said before on its head. I'm an hour and a half train journey from my boyfriend right now which feels pretty short when I read how far other people have to travel, but next year he'll be moving abroad to Germany for a work placement. Either way, I'm still going to not give up and we'll make it work ^^
I lived in Italy for 6 months and then Spain for 4 months! Don't let distance get in the way of a good relationship! I'm still LDR, Hull to Manchester and soon to be London to Manchester. We have been long distance for all of our 2 year relationship!
We met up for the first time about 6 months ago and it didn't work out as planned.
She did say that she loved me prior to meeting so it was quite surreal in that respect!
I found I missed her a lot more than I expected over Easter (it was early days at that point) so I have no idea how hard it will be from the summer onwards!
But hey ho I really like her so I'm sure I would try everything to make it work whatever the distance.
I would never enter a relationship with someone who doesn't live where I live at this point. I am 22 and not a teenager looking for a pen pal and you can in fact choose you start dating and get emotionally invested in, and it's just pure stupidity to do so with someone who lives far away and has a life disconnected to yours. If I am already with a guy and he has to go away for work, up to 3 months would be okay, but I would obviously need a strong token of our commitment, for example being engaged.
