definitely

my boyfriend lives in glasgow and I live at the opposite end of the country. We see each other every month(ish), speak on the telephone everyday, and it's lasted for fourteen months thus far.

I am wary of long distance relationships where the couple have nothing to work towards (ie. moving to be with one another); my boyfriend and I always intended that I would go to university in glasgow, so there was an incentive there.

Thank you

Good luck with the LSE, you're better off not at Oxford seeing as you wouldn't be a Somervillian *hopes no Oxonians come in here to beat her up*

What are your boyfriend's plans? If you're going to both be studying in England then it's only months until you become not-so-long-distance

Nope cause they will get bored and just find someone better

Not that they wouldnt if you lived close to them, but it would be easyer for them to do it.

Err.. no. In casual relationships, maybe, but I think people who embark on long distance relationships do so because that person is just so special that they can't be without them even though being with them involves effort. If they think someone better's just round the corner then couples in long distance relationships wouldn't even bother starting it or continuing it in the first place!

Just look at this thread: Marychrist and her boyfriend, 14 months, Sarky and her boyfriend, almost 3 years.. Proof right there that your statement isn't universally true

Indeed. I've been going out with my girlfriend for practically a year now (anniversary in 2 weeks :love: ) and she lives 4000 miles away in the US. It's also true that internet relationships are never planned. I met her by chance just after I had quit uni last year (she's also the reason I came back) through a penfriends site. After a few days we found we have everything in common and fell for each other :dancing: . Before any of you cynics say anything; we know what each other looks like (I think she's beautiful and she rather likes me ), we've talked on the phone and she's planning to come over in a year and a half, partly for uni but part me as well :love: . Without her I wouldn't be where I am today.

being in a l-d relationship has made me and my bf stronger... we have to make so much effort to see each other now, include each other in our lives etc. and it would be so easy just to drift apart, but we haven't. We've spoken about this quite a few times and it's made us talk to each other a lot more about our feelings, and the weekends we have together are so brilliant because we just try and make them as special as possible (like last weekend we went to edinburgh to see scotland-ireland). I think when you have to make an effort it makes you realise how important they are because it is totally worth it

i should have figured "long distance" did not mean what i thought it did....

/me looking for another thread

Just kidding. It only depends on the involved persons' characters. In most cases they are very difficult to cope with.
