Long distance relationships.

My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for a little over 3 years now. I lived in Florida for most of our relationship! We met online and kept in constant contact. We talked every day for hours and hours. Finally he came to visit me in October 2012. Our connection was just as amazing in person! I moved to Arizona to be with him two months later. We have his daughter Abby and our son together, Lucas. We plan to be married soon!!!

Are/were you in a long distance relationship? Did it work out? :)

      Well...so did I. We met online, by accident, and became friends and then best friends. We wrote letters, web chatted, chatted online, and talked on the phone . We had no intention of falling in love. Both of us had our hearts broken before and wanted nothing to do with love. We were pen pals for two years before I finally told him how I felt (it took me that long to realize it). It turns out, he was in love with me months and months before I even realized it, but he was too afraid to say anything because he did not want to lose me because I was the best-friend he'd ever have. We have known each other for five years (plus) and have been together for three years and will have been married for two this June. I am still madly in love with him.
      Oh, I was in California and he was in Virginia. We both stayed faithful, too, and still remain so. He was in the National Guard so there were some days we went without speaking; it was torcher but we survived. We have been through a lot, health wise but....here we are. I love him more and more everyday.

      I am glad you found your soul mate as well...sometimes, it just takes a different way to do it.

          I have been in long distance relationships and so far i had one disaster. He lived in Houston and I live in Oklahoma and we talked everyday and got along fabulously for a while off and on for 4 years ....there would be periods of no talking or of just life getting in the way and one actual break up. But we always got back together until the last time. His mother lived in oklahoma and i found out that he had been coming to visit her and even staying during the summers when he was on break from Law School. She lived an hour away from me. And in 4 years he'd never once come to visit or anything. He didn't even let me know that he was in OK when he was down. After i found that out we broke up for good. Then i got with this other guy who lived 2 hours from me and we saw each other all the time till his motorcycle accident. He didn't make it. But we had a wonderful relationship while it lasted for the most part. Now i'm sort of talking to this other guy who lives 2 hours from me in the opposite direction and our first meeting will be in about a month.....who knows what will happen, but so far its good.
