    Hi.

    I'm new to this site but well, I'm desperate.

    I have been with my girlfriend for two years now and haven't seen each other face to face! I don't even know how it's lasted this long. We Skype every single day we can but for the past week it has become so difficult and painful. Our backgrounds are similar in that we don't have much money. I live in the UK and she lives in the US, Arizona to be exact. All we can talk about is the fact we probably will never be able to see each other and it is the worst feeling ever, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. If I had the money she would come and live with me and my life would be amazing, I would be the happiest guy ever. I don't know how to get hold of this amount of money :'(

    I think you can make it work, one of you just need to earn enough to fly to the other side of the pond. Don't know when that will happen though

    2 years is a long time, you can definitely make it work just gotta work on visiting each other first

    There is a long distance thread where a lot of people have similar experiences on this site

    To be honest I think you really need to think about where your relationship is going. You obviously have something good but if you are literally never going to be able to see each other, is it worth it?
