it depends on how long you have been together before you moved apart.

The main problem would be how close the couple is, if you're about to get engaged, i'd say it's a safe bet to stay together.

If you're a year apart and one goes to college, who cares? Get on with your life.

My ex, whom I generally refer to as "She Who Must Not Be Named, Lest She Be Summoned"...

She moved to Nfld, we got together, hot & heavy for 2 yrs. She moved back to Ontario in Oct to find work, I was going to follow a few months later, after tying up loose ends. I came out Christmas, she met me at the airport, I swear she was going to shake my hand. Turns out that we didn't really have a relationship...she had been away from her home, lonely, needy, and then "in love with being in love". Now that she was home, she didn't need me anymore. Major bummer.

My current GF/fiancee/common-law wife: we had a long-distance relationship since about '98, She lived in Toronto, I in St John's. I saw her when I went to Kingston for the summer, and visited every second weekend or so, plus for a week at the end of the summer. Last year we decided this had to go forward or go down. So I moved out here to T.O., retired from the Forces, working a civi job, and we've been living together 13 months. So far, so good. We still act like a couple of star-struck newlyweds, if that means anything.

From personal experience long distance relationships do not work....at least it didn't for me. Its very difficult, expensive, and over-whelming..In order for a relationship to work, both people involved need to be close by,...and its' also super easy to get distracted...

Yeah. If it's just boyfriend-girlfriend, it's better to just end it and move on.
