Long distance relationships, do they work?

Do long distance relationships work?

Well hate to say this, but it really depends. The real question to ask, is whether or not you want to stay committed to this individual or rather your partner. Do you really see this person to be the potential “one” in your life? Do you want to invest a lot of time, effort, and money into this other person. Do you trust this person fully that they will not take advantage of the fact that you are not around?

If you answer these questions with a yes, then there is a great likelihood that you can handle being in a long distance relationship.

You see, when someone loves another person, you will go beyond what you think you can do, to make it work, but it has to be  a two-way street. There shouldn’t be one person putting more time and effort than the other. Both people have to agree that no matter what, this is what they want.

I would suggest anyone to not do a long distance relationship, if you feel like you need to have someone constantly around, or that you long for someone to cuddle you, or give you that constant attention. Long distance should be left for individuals that are very much secure in how they feel about the other person and can trust that their partner feels the same.


  1. Lynn, why would you say no? The thing is some people have no reason being together. some people have have no idea why they are together. I am not saying it’s going to be a walk in the park but hey, it does work. If you know what you have and what you don’t want not to have, then you will behave. And Lynn the long distance is not really the problem. It can be local and still won’t work.
