My only advice is to live your life fully, even when you're apart.

Nudge, nudge, wunk, wink

You would think that, James!

I had a few experiences (that's why I travelled a lot ), even though it did not work out well but I have never give up hope. For every relationship, I will try my best to maintain and I strongly believe in fate. Most important is to have trust and good understandings. Unfortunately, those experiences I had, were with unfaithful guy

i have been travelling since 2004 thorughout the world. i came to Argentina in August and stayed untill febuary. Around october i met this girl from Salta, northern part of Argentina. I am still with her now but next week i fly home, we are going to try a long distance relationship. i'm not too sure how well it will work out but i want to give it a go. was just wondering if anyone has any tips or past experences with a similar sitituation.

Have got enough money, vacation time and visas etc to fly back and forth every few months? Future plans allow marriage anytime soon? Have you agreed where to live? If not, forget it.

What does that have to do with it? I didn't have the visas/moeny etc.to go back to NZ immediately. I married my husband, although we didn't have a clue where we were gonna live...

we are happy as and my advice is: go with the flow. Don't break your head over things too much/early, it will all happen at the right time!

and above all: if you really love someone, a long distance relationship is something that can work!!!!! (but only if both parties put in their effort!)

I'm the living proof!

Thought id add my story now as it looks like my difficult love life has had some resolution. I met an Australian in July 2006 (Im British). We became good friends and over time got closer. I was interested in travelling to Oz and late that year I was offered a 6 month contract for work in Melbourne, which it turned out was near where this guy lived. So I came out in Feb, after vowing to family and friends I would be back in 12 months. When I arrived in Oz our friendship quickly developed into more. After 6 months came the difficult decision-do I head off travelling and then return home as planned? Or do I remain in Melbourne and try find a way to stay and work on the relationship. (not eligible for a de facto visa as not lived together for 12 months) I stayed and moved in with the guy!! I have still done some travelling-short trips around Oz whilst waiting to hear about jobs etc. But today.....Iv found out I have a job and they will sponsor me to stay!! So looks like the gamble was worth it. It is a good job I knew I was happy to move to Australia and we still have some major obstacles-eg i miss my family and if we get married/have children etc it is going to be really hard without my family around!
So it can work out-but with some sacrificing on both parts!!

Yep, I met 'D' while I was on my working trip in NYC. It's funny how we met up with each other at a new magazine launch. It was actually only on the last 5 days I was in NYC that we caught up with each other. We had great chemistry. Spent the night till dawn with a New Yorker showing you around town, I was very lucky that I met him. Fine gentleman. We still correspond through email. Nothing romantic or whatsoever. I don't believe in long distance relationship.

Perhaps another time?

Whenever I miss NYC or see videos of NYC on TV, I'll smile and think of him. Miss hanging out with him badly in NYC. It was a splendid experience.

Hey,
I'm with a guy who lives in Hannover and I live in Somerset, UK. He came to my school on the German exchange in May 2009 and we've kept in touch ever since. We arranged that I would visit him this July for 2 weeks however he doesn't know I'm surprising him by visiting hom for his birthday 4 weeks today. We talk every night and once a week we speak on the phone. He's smitten with me as I am with him. He's willing to do anything to visit me. He sent me the most amazing Valentines gift and love letter as I did to him. He wishes I was with him everyday and his friends tell me he talks about me everyday. I do believe overseas relationships can work, its just down to the couple involved whether they are willing to make it work if you love them that much as I do with mine.
