I agree #1. For OP and his 'girlfriend', it's surely no longer a relationship. But not seeing each other for 2 years is crazy! You really thought she would try to keep the relationship with you? I don't blame her. I understand that it was over 900 miles but, maybe it would be best for both of you if you kept it short distance or broke up. I have a relative who had a girlfriend and she moved away to be with family. She wanted him to come with her but he couldn't leave family and neither could she. They broke up. But FYL OP, that's messed up. ): Sorry.
how can you have a long distance relationship without seeing each other at all for 2 years?
1. If you're poor. 2. If you live REALLY far apart and decide to make do with phone/Internet/webcam for two years. 3. If you both have very demanding jobs and can't align your schedules for a meeting. 4. Etc. And who cares? Clearly their long-distance relationship wasn't a successful one due to her actions, but if both parties approach things the way OP in this case did, a relationship like that would most likely work out fine.
I agree with what you said but I dont understand how it would be worth it to try an be in that relationship unless you were already together and your partner had to go off to war. There's really no physical contact and you cant tell if they are being faithful like in this situation
I do agree that two years seems a bit excessive, but sometimes immigration issues take that long, for example, and in the meantime you live in different countries. If your view is that physical contact is more important than being in a relationship with that person for the long term, then you're right, it wouldn't be worth it. And lots of people cheat even in regular short-distance relationships; you just have to trust the person you love.
I have been in a long distance relationship for over 2 years. My man and I met, in person, 3 years before we started going out. before we were going out we became best freinds, and now we're more than that for each other. He moved away but we are still dating and plan to live with each other after high school. There is a saying: A'ohe loa i ka hana a ke aloha. this is Hawaiian for: Distance is ignored by love.
