Also just a heads up everyone! While this chat is gonna stay open and you can keep talking all you want, the live chat part ends in about 2 minutes, so responses will slow down a bit (because people like myself will have fallen asleep )

See ya @Glass_half_full thanks for everything tonight <3
Wow @Ben-RO asking the tough questions. Is both an answer? I think being in a relationship in general is tough, being able to let someone in and be vulnerable with them is hard and so I really think you need all of it. You need the support system and be able to have fun and share things with each other?

That is a tricky on @Ben-RO. I think they're both valuable, however having cool experiences without relationship skills probably wouldn't be as good as having good relationship skills without cool experiences. So I'd say skills/communication stuff.

Wow is it already that time! It has flown with you all! Thank you all for being so open and willing to share what you have been through. Even if you only shared a little or watch from afar it has been a really validating experience for me to know other people are doing LDRs as well. Really hope that you are all very happy

Thanks to everyone who jumped on and contributed to this great discussion, i learned a lot and feel pretty excited about all the new things i have to appreiciate about my LDR!
I look forward to all the forum hangs, and of course next week's GR; we're thinking of tackling the topic of loneliness, what do you reckon?

For sure you can steal the lunch idea @Ben-RO
Is it more important to make and share good experiences with the person (or people) you are in a relationship with, or is the skill building, communication and generally relationship skill stuff more important?
Yikes that's tough. Cause if you just have lots of good experiences but haven't worked on any skills together then even pretty basic differences in opinion/values could cause a problem. But if you have lots of relationship skills sorted out but never share any good experiences then people are going to get bored/resentful.
