Long distance relationship makes love stronger or fades it with time?

Hi, Generally people say that Long distance relationship doesnt work and is not something anyone would wanna try. I have some close friends who feel the opposite and they believe it makes the bond even stronger. What are your views on this?

  1. Long distance in a relationship is a challenge that can be overcome only if the foundation of it is rock solid. Achieving this kind of foundation requires a lot of work. Emotional, mental, in fact physical, too. And quite ironically, a couple can definitely not reach the stage without having spent considerable time with each other, studied one another's reactions to situations and even felt the other's vibes in good times and bad in reality.*p**p*Physical proximity is an indispensible step towards becoming one soul out of two. But once this has happened and the fundamentals of the relationship have been forged, physical distance certainly cannot disturb it. *p*

  2. Sounds pretty hard to keep a relationship going this way.*p**p*We need to communicate often on phone or skype.*p**p*We need to take out time for each other.*p**p*But if the future seems like this is going on endlessly you have to have a timeline about when you will be together again.*p**p* *p*

  3. It entirely depends on the couple involved whether they are willing to withstand the strains of a long distance relationship. It is moreover acceptable because modern life throws us into such situations and there is no escape. Acceptance of such a situation is required. The problem usually arises if one of the spouses (usually male) wants the other to give up something (usually a job) to be together. This demand to compromise on one's ambition is what causes trouble. So at the start of a relationship such a situation can be anticipated and acknowledged then it is better. This can ensure one can sustain a long distance relationship. There can be issues of trasgressions too since often out of sight becomes out of mind and physical needs may impel someone to succumb to its lure but one needs to be open to see them as given and move on with it without ill will. Thereby the bonding becomes stronger. *p*

  4. At the end of the day i feel like its better to be able to experience things with your partner rather than share everything virtually. However, couples that do make it through long distance relationships probably have extremely compatible personalities. Living with someone is completely different though and you could have small issues that tamper with the relationship satisfaction levels and therefore i feel like long distance relationships do not have a very high success rate!*p*
