rule #1: long distance relationships will never work out. Proximity is one of the major facets of being in a successful relationship.
#4: LDRs do work. I lived in WI and my husband is from Tokyo. We were away for 8 months total, and got married and are really happy. So yes, they do work, if you work at it and keep in touch and are actually COMMITTED to the relationship as opposed to letting your eye wander and experience communication gaps that last longer than every other day... though at least e-mailing every day is best, if not a phone call. Skype is super cheap to call phones around the country and internationally from the compy or lappy. And as for the OP: At least she dumped you in person rather than through an e-mail or something pussy like that. Be grateful she respected you enough for that!
