Bee and I lived on other sides of the country when we first met: she lived in LA and I lived in NYC. We met while she was visiting NYC… she was only in town for four days, but we hit it off right away.
So we actually started off as an LDR… I think the odds against us were pretty high. But somehow it all worked out. 🙂 Looking back though, I have to wonder what our thought process was!
How about you: did you start off as LDR, or were you guys local for a while… and then become LDR at a later point?

That’s a sweet story, MrBee. I love reading these stories and know they have a happy ending! Sometimes it just seems so crazy, this whole LDR thing, but knowing that others have made it through, that gives me hope.
Our relationship has always been long distance. It’s strong and I know it’s going to work out, too

We started as an LDR, spent about ten months trying to short sale his place, and now he lives less than fifteen minutes away! I love being able to drop by and visit after class. 😀

We were local for a year and a half, but now we’re LDR for three years while I’m away at grad school. The downside is that we’re just ready to be married, but we’re stuck in limbo for another year and a half. The upside is that we’re halfway done with LDR at Christmas!

Our relationship started as an LDR. We went to high school together but he moved to CO because his dad was air force. We started dating when we were apart and I moved near him for college! We were in an LDR for about 2 years.

We started as an LDR and stayed that way for a year and a half until he moved closer to me. I’m so glad that time is over! I don’t think I could go back to doing long distance now!

We were friends in high school but didnt realize how much we cared for each other until my first week of college when I was living six hours away. So we technically started off long distance but we’ve known each other forever. We’ve been long distance for over 5 years now, but some time within the next 6 months Ill be moving back to my hometown!

We started off local.
I moved to Uppsala, Sweden to study abroad for school, and I met my FI because we lived in the same dorm hall. We lived two doors away from each other, we started dating a month after I arrived and were inseperable for about 9 months. Then I had to go back to CA to finish school but we decided to stay together. A few back and forth trips and 4 years later, we were engaged! =) Now we are planning long distance and will probably have to be long distance married for a few months! eep!

We’re from the same hometown, but…
we went to different high schools, then colleges 2 hours apart, then jobs 8 hrs apart, 1 glorious year living together, and now we’re in the home stretch of the 4th year living 3 hrs 15 min apart while I finish grad school.
I’m on the job market now, and there’s a ton of pressure on the dream of living in the same city. 11 years from our first date, we can’t wait to get married and see each other every day!
