How old are you and how far are you moving away?

I'm going to have to go with the, "it never works" thoery. Especially if you are both young. Both of you will most likely meet somebody new, with her beating you to it, and you finding out months later. Than after years of therapy, it will be safe for you to get on with your life. With somebody new. Any questions?

Ok, so I was being a bit of a smart ass, but that's basically how I feel about the situation.

Honestly? What i think? Your friend is wrong. 1 hour isn't that bad to go see your girl, I mean if it was like 4 hours, I'd be like Fuck that. But I think you can make it work, don't believe what people say to you. Just do what feels right to you.

It will work, especially if she is only a hour away. i'm in one that is working right now and has been for 4 months, and shes 7 hours away from me, but we get to see each other about every other week so yeah don't listen to what people say it will work.

shit man, my girlfriend is in texas. i'm in chicago. it can be done.

it really depends on the relationship and on you both. i'm the type who can make a long-distance relationship work. and no, it isn't always easy. in fact it's hardly ever easy. i'm always busy so i'm pretty distracted, but she's got more free time on her hands and i know it's hard.

but with today's communications, it's not hard to stay in touch as much as you want. not like writing a damn letter every day and waiting a week for the pony express to deliver it or something

so yeah, it depends on you. try it, and see how it goes. don't give up while you've still got feelings.

It is possible for it to work but age and a means of transportation could play a crutial part.

You yanks can drive at 16 and, judging by the shit heaps I see on Pimp My Ride, can drive whatever the fuck you want as long as it has wheels and goes forward.

An hour? Come on. That's not long distance.

I tend to agree with this statement. If you are unable to drive (due to age or otherwise) it will be difficult. but it CAN work if you make it work. If you are young and both your parents and her parents get along, it's possible to request that you and she hang out on weekends and that gives your parents some reason to drive for an hour. Or take the bus. If you are just unable to drive. taking the bus certainly should not be a problem for either of you if she too is unable to drive. One hour away is not very long as far as distance relationships go. If the both of you can come to some agreement on how each other will be able to be together occasionally then it can work. try the phone, maybe suggest both of you get a web cam so you can see each other as well. It all depends on the amount of effort and committment both of you are willing to put into this relationship. Without that, it won't work.
