I’m just curious, in our relationship I consider myself to ‘be far away’ from him – I don’t consider him far away from me. Does that make sense? Maybe because we’re both Americans but I don’t live in America.
I know a lot of distance couples are such because they or their SO are in the military, and some others are international couples. So, here’s my question: who in your LD couple is ‘far away’?

I would say that we are both far from each other, I am in Alaska, and he is in North Dakota…. both are kinda random places, and Alaska is just plain far away from everything else in the USA. Soooo, I guess that I could have chosen that I am far away from him.

We’re both far away. I’m in Kansas and he is in Ontario.

He’s far from me…he’s in school in SoCal, I’m in the Bay Area, and he’s moving up here after he graduates! This is also where my family’s from, but his is from upstate NY.

He was the one who was far away. He always hated that he “left” everyone. I guess because he was away from where he grew up.

I am not in a full-time LDR, my FI travles Mon-Thurs for work….So, Mon-Thurs I feel like he is away FROM ME b/c I am at “home.”
It sucks ladies, and I commend you for being in full-time LDRs!!

I guess this is just a mindset thing 🙂 but there’ve been some good points made about who ‘leaves’, and where you’re going to be after the wedding. 🙂

I considered myself away from him too. Just how I felt!

I’m far from him – he still lives in our hometown(high school sweethearts, go ahead and gag a little), whereas I live over 100 miles away.

We lived together for 2 years before marriage.

We’ve been long distance twice in our relationship, I was in Los Angeles, he was in Sacramento both times. I moved to Sacramento for a few years and then moved back to LA where he followed after almost a year. It’s not easy and I am so glad we’re in the same region now, yay!

Right now the Mr and I live about an hour a part. Its tough because we’d love to be together everyday but we’re waiting til we get married to live together. Plus I’m at school in the city, and he teaches at a school closer to his house. Its not ideal, but works for us

I’m far from Cam. We live about an hour apart … but all my friends are up there, too (except a few choice ones still in my home town i.e. 3)

I will be far from him. Alas, our LDR, while I thought it was over, it is not..begins again on Friday. I will be moving back to Texas, while he stays in Massachusetts. When he moves to Milwaukee, we will be far from each other.

I actually put that we are both where we belong. While I was in school I was far away from him becuase he stayed much closer to home and I left. Now we live in different cities (about 3 hours apart) but are each really comfortable where we are – except that we aren’t together. We have good couple-friends in both places, great jobs, community, etc. After the wedding we’ll eventually be together – just not right away. And when we do finally get to be together it will be in a new city for both of us. THankfully we are close enough now that we can see each other almost every weekend and are able to alternate whose place we go to.
