poll of the week: can you do the distance?

First things first! Last week's results...

What are the boundaries for dating a man that your friend once laid claim on?
Majority rules: You must ask before you touch. How polite! Your friend should come first in this situation, regardless of their past history. We think this is a great rule of thumb.

This week's question is....

What's your theory on dating someone who isn't local?


  1. my ex and I dated for three and a 1/2 years before we had to became long distance because of work reasons. we managed to last another 1 1/2 long distance before ending the time we thought a year or so long distance wouldnt be so bad with frequent visits and the end result being we'd be together in the same place...but with the loss of the every day time together, the few days together every other month or so and phone calls just weren't enough. i think that's not the case for every one though, i know a lot of people who have successfully managed the long distance thing and are still going strong.

  2. My current boyfriend and I have been together for a year now and we have been long distance the whole time...we live about two and a half hours apart and met through friends last August. We usually see each other every other weekend, although lately it has been more like every weekend which is great! So far our only problem has been missing each other, which isn't fun but its not as bad as what some long distance couples deal with like jealousy, schedules that don't allow them to communicate much, etc. He's a senior in college but I still have two more years to go after this one, so even though we've made it through one year its sometimes hard to imagine getting through two and a half more! So far its worth it though and our relationship is great!

  3. This is another great topic - these polls are a great idea! I didn't vote because my choice is something like "can work but they take work too" My boyfriend and I are long distance during the summer- two so far, once I studied abroad once when we had jobs in different cities. And his best friend is in a long distance relationship with his high school sweetheart who goes to school in another state. I think it depends a lot on the people and the effort they put into the relationship! There's no doubt they are tougher than being in the same place but they can definitely work!
