How big of a distance would you class a 'long distance relationship'?Watch
First year of uni has finished now and it's been perfect. Long distance relationships are great imo if you're willing to put in the time and effort.
I'm currently an 8 hour plane ride (+trains and cars) from my boyfriend, which is 100% long distance. We haven't seen each other in 3 months and won't see each other for another month. Earlier on in our relationship, we were a 2 1/2 hour train from one another and it's wasn't a big deal at all!
I done my time in LDR's, so I don't do them any more. If I'm with someone and things are serious and long term, I may consider a month or two of distance if it's necessary, depending on a case by case basis, if it's not worth it in my mind I just end things amicably and wish them the best of luck, and go do my own thing.
eg: To the person above, 30 miles could be done in like 1 hour if someone has a car. If they are going by public transport the time taken to reach them would likely double. If this was a couple of thousand years ago it would probably take many hours on horseback or a full days walking to reach them.
personally i'd say at 2 hrs+ it's breaching the long distance category.
