I was in a long distance relationship, but I moved out to live with him. We met playing WoW, I heard his voice on vent one day and I wanted to get to know him better. We saw each other only maybe once a year, because we lived so far apart, and school and work and me getting sick really screwed with meeting up. We've been together four years next month.
Aw, that's sweet :D "Love at first vent!"
I have been in two!
We met online in 1995 (I was 18 and he was 17) and met IRL for the first time in December 1996. We got engaged in March 1997 on our second visit. We then got married in August 1997 and I moved to be with him in September 1997. It's been a rough ride at times, but I wouldn't want life without him.
We knew of each other before we started interacting at all since we were involved in the same hobby. We met in real life in 2005 and became close friends. Our relationship became romantic in January 2006. We visited each other every other month for about 1-2 weeks at a time. He moved to live with Art and me in July 2008. We got married by Elvis in June 2008 and life is going swimmingly. I wouldn't want life without him either!
LDRs suck but at least Skype exists now :D
I was. We met in college but he graduated two years before me and moved home, theoretically to save money. We did not have a song. We saw each-other every 3-6 months for about a week at a time. That lasted about two and a half years and then I graduated and he moved to be with me. We're married now.
I was in one on and off through 4 years of college (10 hours apart), plus 3 months (2 hours apart) in 2011.
We met in 9th grade, but didn't starting dating until senior year.
During college, we saw each other on school breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, spring) plus the whole summer.
We've been together for 6.5 years (married for a year and a half)
I'm currently in a LDR. We met in college and dated for 8 months, then we graduated and both moved back in with our parents. It's been 5-6 months of distance and we've seen each other 3 times. Currently trying to figure out how to bridge the distance... he's still near where we went to school so it makes sense for me to move there since we both have friends in the area, but I have mysterious allergies that may or may not be way worse when I'm there, and I'm way more likely to find a job if I stay here.
I have been. Once we met over the net, once i moved for uni (it was a 22 hour drive).
We had "songs" , saw each other maybe twice a year. That was shitty. More as i got older. That all sucks. My SO lives away for four months of the year but i dont consider it "long distance" even though i cant see him then. Its just part of his job to me.
yes.. we were dating for a year & a half when he left to do training for the air force. He's been gone for 4 months. We ended up splurging because we really missed eachother and I saw him in August, early Sept, end of October, and he'll be home for Thanksgiving but after that won't see him til mid-January (we only see eachother three-four days at a time, exception of last week where hurricane sandy gave me three extra days!).
Our 2 year anniversary is next week. it sucked at the beginning but now it's gotten a little easier. I miss having him here and not spending time with him but it gives us both time to focus on school and other things. He finds out where he (and I) will be stationed in 3 weeks (stationed for three years) so I'm really crossing my fingers. I'm debating moving with him where it may be (it *could* be our home state..which would be amazingly convenient but it's the military so..) in February....ahhhh! I really feel like it'll make me happier. I'm technically done with college after this semester (online classes next semester, graduate in June) and my job isn't something I love so...
I was, it didn't work out for us as a relationship, but we're still best friends to this day. We haven't met in person (I'm in Canada, he is in the US) due to financial situations.
We talk to each other still every day, and I'm still a strong believer that LDRs can work :)
We dated for 3 years, from when we were in our early teens (I was 16 he was 15). We were friends before for about 3 years and have been friends for juuuust over 10 years now! :)
I was! We met on a message board, and after we'd been friends for a while he decided to go on a cross-country bus trip to meet some of his online friends. We really hit it off in person and got together. We chatted on AIM, wrote each other, called each other, and even saw each other about once a year before he moved here for college 5 years ago. We moved in together about 1.5 years ago, and have been together for 8. :3 A song? Ehhh not really. Maybe Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train." It was the first song we discovered we both liked (we've got pretty different musical tastes).
currently in a LDR because my BF is stationed in Va (im in OH) and hes on deployment in the middle east.
we met online on OKC but had seen each other before. he workded nearby (we were both in the navy and i was discharges bout 6 months ago)and came to borrow stuff from my squadron.
weve been dating just over a year, and have been LDR since April, though there was a short break from April to June because he didnt think it would work.
hes left for cruise in June and has been gone for 5 months. hell be back in march hopefully and going home to MI in May. im planning to move up to MI then.
My husband and I were long distance for two years, then we lived together for a year before we got married. Now we are again in a long distance relationship as he works as a truck driver. We get to see each other for about a week every two to three months. Hopefully that will end in December though. Our song is "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol. We've been together for five years.
semi-long distance. a little less than 1.5 hours apart, and though i really don't think that's "long distance", everyone around me is always asking me how i do it... it's really not that far at all. we met in high school i guess. we only talked once or twice in art class. then we met again at a mutual friends wedding. dated for a while. stopped dating for a while. and now we is in love and stuff. we see each other every weekend.
Me and my new boyf have been dating for 2 months and we are about 1.5 hours apart... we see each other every weekend :) you give me hope for us!
Aw yay! Yeah we were on/off seeing each other for two years. Then ~casually~ dating for a year now. In about July we started being more serious and it's just progressed from then [: I think it's been working really well because it's made us not rush into things quickly and we really got to know each other.
If you want feel free to add me on here or message me any time. This whole not-super-close-distance but not long-distance makes for people (at least for friends/people I know) not really get our relationship like "how do you only see each other once a week and stay together??" I get asked a lot. And I get so many people telling me how "faaaarrr" we are... and I'm like... it's not CLOSE but it's really not far.
Anyway! I'm babbling! Haha, point being if you ever want to add me/talk with someone in a similar situation, I'm here [:

Kinda am at the moment. Been together 5 plus years, met when I was in college and we were not LD for a long time. He joined the Army in 2009 and we've been LD since then. He did 12 months in Korea from July 2010 to July 2011 which was the worst because we saw each other twice in that time, its better now that he's stateside! He proposed in July 2011 and he'll be home for good in February and we'll be married in June. Our songs are "This Kind of Love" by sister hazel and "pistol" by dustin kensrue.
I was in one for about a year. I guess we lived 13 or so hours apart. He's best friends with my sister's boyfriend and that's how we met. He would come and visit me every month but I never visited him... (he had a lot more money than me, and knew heaps of people in Melbourne whereas I knew no one in his tiny country town). We broke up because he wanted me to ask him to move here and I wasn't able to make that committment to him, but I guess we're still friends. He's actually coming down to visit tomorrow (the first time since we broke up) so we'll see how that goes!
I was in one for four months. We met in a country foreign to us both and were together a year there. I haven't seen him in nearly two years.
He wasn't brave enough for it to work. He was still in love with me when we broke up. I hate him for that. If he had just stopped loving me ... fine, I can cope with that, but to just give up?
Love means different things to different people. >>
I was. Our parents were friends, and they lived about 3 hours away? We were only together a year and a half, and I think over that period we might have only saw each other 6/7 times.
