@Stealth_ninja Not really for too long, it was eight months not too long ago. It feels like it has been so much longer really.

@Ben-RO I feel like it will be worth it one day. The hardest thing I would have to say is definitely because my boyfriend has a mental illness and when he isn't feeling too great I can't be there telling him things are okay. And it's hard because I always worry that something is going to happen to him and I won't be able to stop it.

it looks like we have a nice mix tonight! so cool
Let's discuss the next question : Are there some worries that are a part of a LDR that don't happen in a "normal" or not long distance relationship?

Probably only gonna answer a couple of Q's before I get busy with something else as per usual
How many people have had or have long distance friendships or long distance relationships? What makes them different from other friend/relationships?
Yep my main long dist relationship is with my boyfriend who's in the US. Been "together" for 5yrs but seen him in-person once. There's a heap of differences between this relationship and any other relationships I have, because it's my only romantic-relationship-experience, my only hey-look-I'm-actually-comfortable-chatting-with-th

haha @Ben-RO I think it says something about the fact that we are all over-committers
Yes definitely counts @j95
@OmNomPineapples yeah I think one of the hardest parts of being in a LDR is that you can't always look after the person when they're sick or struggling. That's is definitely one of the challenges, but the fact that he can call you and confide in/speak to you is important.
