You’ll probably be out the money from flights but don’t have to live with the regret of never knowing what could have been. Hi Marc, thanks for reaching out and sharing your story. but your story made me stronger and made me believe that when i move it really will happen and i won’t have a heartbreak and that everything will be alright and work out, not just the love part, but everything else (a new life in a new country), hopefully, so thanks a lot :’) x, Hi some girl :) Thankyou for sharing your story, it sounds like you’ve met a really wonderful person. He completes me.. (meganjerrard@gmail.com).

I hope and pray that it all turns out great like it has yours. So perhaps you guys can start planning something for when you’re able to be together again, whether that’s something small like overnight at a hotel, or even if you start putting ideas together for your wedding. Nothing is a failed experience if it brought you happiness for a short while, and if there were positives which came as a result. It definitely helps when you both have a solid plan you can work towards and look forward to. The moral of this story is… Carpe Diem. All the best … take the jump!

The good thing for you guys is that although Switzerland and Turkey are still very far apart, they’re also very close in terms of catching flights to see each other. XX, how to make my ex husband miss me during separation post comments, Unfortunately that’s not our area of expertise, but we wish you both all the best, and hope it’s an easy path to either moving on or reconnecting :), I agree with everything you’ve said. 6 weeks after I went home he had quit his job, given up everything including leaving his 2 children, and come back to live in the UK. It’ll likely be tough, especially at the start, and I’m sure there will be many phone calls with awkward silences from time to time, but I would be honest with him that you want to tackle the language barrier to improve your communication and that you’re willing to be patient while you both work towards improving in the other persons language. Just want your opinion on this, should I stay or should I go :P The embassy denied his extended trip here and said they thought he would overstay and live here illegally. Honestly? He doesn’t like to see me homesick. It was terrible, I swear some of the gals just wanted a dinner with wine. Trying to plan out your whole future at once can be really overwhelming and make your head spin, so start out by setting up a routine of when you talk – regular video chats via Skype or FaceTime is a great place to start :). Then December last year she visited me.

However it’s getting a bit much now and I don’t want to talk further about this if it’s only going to be negativity.”, Hope that helps :) Have a wonderful trip to Austria XX.

So that’s where her opinions are likely coming from. If you add up all the times we have traveled to see each other.

Hi Tatiana – so psyched to hear youve met someone amazing – congrats!

If you feel as though this is a moment in your relationship where it might be make or break, and you are in a position to visit France, I would say take the leap and believe in love. I wont lie – long distance for 18 months was incredibly hard, but we made it work by maintaining the following.

Sorry to be a downer on such an otherwise positive thread, but this is absolutely killing me and no one really understands.

It’s really nice, I also have same sort of relationship. (It’s cheaper to fly to Singapore over the holidays than Australia.). Wishing you all the best – I hope visas etc come through to allow you to be in the same country soon :). Congratulations Trisha!

Love is real!

Are you in a position to make a big leap of faith and visit France for a couple of months?

I had a massive panic attack an hour before I landed (Oh good Lord…what am I doing!!!!)

Time passed by and we talked and got into a small relationship which did not move further but it was definitely the wrong timing.

i met the love of my life on a christian dating site in August 2015 and we became friends on Facebook. Loved reading this! And acknowledge from the start that it’s going to get hard, but lay out a plan for communication, for when and how you’ll meet up, when your college holidays align, all that jazz.

So psyched to hear that you’re trying to make it work though, because as you said yourself, even if it ends up not having worked out, you still gave it a shot.

We are both going to college and have limited money so we won’t see each other for a very long time… Five years to be exact.

And I travel fairly often. Like 12 years old that is like 13 years ago.

Stories like this only happen in the movies! Megan you must have been amazing in bed!”. You definitely miss his moaning when you're in bed. I alternate between overwhelming excitement and fear. I firmly believe that you can make anything work if you want to. I don’t know if this helps or not, though I heard a quote this week, that you should flip a coin when you’re trying to decide on something, as in that split second where it’s up in the air you know what you want it to be.

A long distance relationship is less overwhelming if you can come up with a few different ideas for making it work; if you both realize that there are many different choices/options then it will make you feel as though at least one of them can pan out. I don’t know how long you’ve got left on your degree but maybe you could look into the possibility of a student exchange or something like that which could put you close to her for 6 months or a year. So take it in steps. We only had one night together but talked throughout the rest of my trip. Couldn’t have said it better myself. That could be your travel fund to pay for the trip. As I mentioned to Roxana above as well, I think that in your situation one of the biggest things is going to be actually meeting in person, as I think that that personal connection after having physical met the person is going to be your biggest indication of whether or not it will work, and whether or not it’s worth continuing the relationship, so perhaps that’s something you can really try and work to make happen. It sounds like there is a lot of love and commitment from both sides though, so I’m sure you will find a way through it. Daily if you can, so you both feel as though you’re a big part of each other’s lives.

Congrats on meeting your soulmate – it can definitely be done re making the long distance :). And hopefully over time a way forward might develop or one of you might find yourself with a new set of circumstances to make something work. I’m so glad to hear that you’re having a fabulous time with her family and it’s all working smoothly! or listen to other people’s advice if they’ve never been in the situation themselves. Long distance relationships only work when there is a “Happy Ending” in sight. We have about 10 more month to go before we can live in the same city again. Would you please help gay distance love??? Your love story is such an inspiration. We have been together nearly 3yrs now and determined to make this work. The point is, we don’t know. Later I’ll go back and spend a year or so there then she’ll Spend as much time as she can here then we get married.

Wishing you all the best in your next relationship :) X, Thank you so much Meg and I am so happy for you guys :). Frankly, I felt insecure being together with a guy who doesn’t want a relationship but as a friend. Sounds like the problem is with the guy. It’s always difficult for people to understand situations which are outside of the norm for them. We openly talk about sex, marriage, babies…everything. Everyday seems like a struggle and I always end up wondering is it even worth it in the future. Hi Shruti, I’m very sorry to hear that this has happened to you. As cliché and corny as it sounds I do agree that if it’s meant to be you’ll find your way back to each other – I genuinely believe that long distance relationships can work for anyone if both people truly want them to, but at the same time, the timing has to be right, and you shouldn’t have to force it.

Thanks for your comment Laura…I’m really sorry to hear about your relationship.
