How far away are you two?

We live about 4,000 miles apart (I’m in Chicago and he’s in Ireland.) 

How often do you see each other?

The longest that we’ve ever gone without seeing each other was six months – but usually we’re able to see each other every third month or so, for at least a month or longer at a time.

 Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?

We take turns visiting one another.

Do you talk on the phone? or text? or email?

We mostly talk over skype – although we call, text and email occasionally.

How far away are you two?

Approx 11.5 hours by Car. Im in NY hes in NC

How often do you see each other?

Approx. every 4 weeks and/or every holiday or 96 he has.

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?

I fly to him, although we have met in them middle quite a few times πŸ™‚ Its easier because he is working and with military can’t always promise things will go as planned haha.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

Text all day (most days if possible), phone calls every night and often on his lunch break. Facetime a lot now that we both have iphones and macbooks lol. When he is/was deployed wrote a letter for everyday we were a part and sent an eamil everyday. Phone calls and skyping sparatically.

How far away are you two?

I’m not sure if this counts as being far away, but he lives on the other side of town. It takes me about 90 minutes to get to his place using public transit.

How often do you see each other?

I see him once during the week and on weekends.

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?

He usually comes to me because he drives and I don’t.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

We talk on the phone at night; text during the day.

How far away are you two?

Across the ocean…US and Morocco

How often do you see each other?

I saw him last in Feb…he’ll come for about six weeks in Nov…then I hope to do grad school in Europe in 2013. We might then be “short-long-distance” for awhile but at least we’d both be on the right side of the Atlantic and Morocco is a seriously short hop from Europe.

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?

This time, he’s making the big trip to see me. If I end up in Europe, I will probably make more of the trips to Morocco because it’s easier visawise.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

It varies because he doesn’t have a personal computer and travels lots for work, but we have some form of skype or phone or FB chat conversation almost everyday.  He’s a night owl so our schedules usually match up despite the time difference.

How far away are you two? just over 8,200 miles (I’m in GA he’s in New Zealand)

How often do you see each other? we shoot for twice a year, but we have gone with once a year, and our visits are usually a month long

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle? We switch πŸ™‚ He visited me first

Talk on the phone? or text? or email? not so much talk on the phone just because he’s at work for most of the time he is up & I am up. But on the weekends we skype/gmail every friday and saturday. My dad just sent one of our old house phone sets with him and we set up a new gmail account and we’re calling him through his google voice number, which means he can have a local number and it’ll be free (woo hoo!) We don’t really use that though, just bc when we can talk on the phone, we just go ahead and gchat with each other. It’s mainly for our moms to talk, hehe.

But for the most part, we type to each other on gmail while he’s at work, we try to keep in contact constantly and since we both work with computers, it’s pretty easy πŸ™‚

Years ago, I was in the U.S. (East Coast), he was in Italy. We saw each other once over the 9 months (in the middle) and I went to visit. Afterward, we were a 2 hour drive apart for a full year. We would see each other about once a month, and we’d take turns. Now, we’re a 14 hour drive or a 4ish hour plane ride apart, and for the past year, we see each other every 3 months, taking turns. We are both in school so we don’t have time to travel (or the money). So at least three years total (I didn’t include the summers during college when we were at our respective parents about a 10 hour drive apart) were long distance.

When he was in the U.S., we did texting, the phone, we do Skype mostly so we can see each other. When he was in Italy, it was only on Skype/ leaving FB messages/posts, etc. I mailed some cute letters, but he wasn’t a big letter sender. He did send me a package for our anniversary, though. We talk pretty much every day, even if it’s a “Hey, I’m super busy, love you miss you.” We were together for a little less than a year before the LDR began, and when we have been together since, it’s usually only for a summer or a couple of weeks.

 ETA: After five years of dating, I am finally moving to his current town… permanently! The end is finally happening! Now if only he’d get the proposal happening ASAP… πŸ™‚

How far away are you two?

6-8hr drive, 1-1.5hr by plane. 

How often do you see each other?

In the beginning it was once every 5-7 weeks. but for someone reason, this summer, we’ve been flying back and forth a lot more frequently, about every 2-3 weeks. part of it has to do with my decision to move to be with him. i’ve been flying up to slowly move my stuff and then we spent an entire trip apt hunting. 

 Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?

he’s come to me a few times but i almost always fly up to see him. he works a 9-5 whereas i have a flexible schedule. i can take up to a full week off without using any PTO or vaction time. 

Do you talk on the phone? or text? or email?

we are both horrible phone people but have gotten better as the months go by. we definitely talk every day/all day via gchat or text.

This is interesting!

7-8 hour drive.

Every other weekend, to every third weekend at worst.  We don’t like to wait a whole month.

Summer – meet in the middle, camping or bed and breakfast

Winter – some meeting in middle at B&B if weather permits safe driving, or take turns flying to each other’s towns.

Text and email.  Neither of us care to talk on the phone (I used to work on a technical support phone line full time so I don’t like the phone lol) – but we do call each other occasionally to hear each other’s voices.

How far away are you two?

I’m in Chicago and he’s in Boston. πŸ™

How often do you see each other?

On average about every month or month and a half. Though there are times when it’s longer.  It will usually be for a weekend, a couple times it was for 5-8 days. This time we are apart longer than usual. I last saw him beginning of June and I’m not seeing him again until last weekend of August or beginning of September. I feel like I’m going to go crazy. I wish I can see him for just an hour… Sorry for the side comments, I’m just really going through my bf withdrawal at the moment. LDR is not too hard on me for the most part, but there are times when it’s just really hard not being able to just give him a hug and hold his hand, and I’m def at that mark right now. Frown

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?

He comes to Chicago a lot and I make my trips out to Boston when I can. I would say it 70% he comes, 30% I go there. 

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

All of the above, including Skype. We Skype a lot, usually at night, to talk about our day. We’ll change into our pjs together over Skype, brush our teeth together and get ready for bed, and then a lot of times we will keep Skype on with our laptop plugged in and fall asleep together. I love waking up in the morning and seeing him sleeping in his bed on my laptop. Tomorrow we are going to take a nap together over Skype when he gets home from work in the afternoon. I seriously can’t wait.

Fiance and I were in an LDR and it was rough so I’m going to do this based on that.

How far away are you two?

We lived about 1,000 miles apart (17 hours by car, 3 hours by plane)

How often do you see each other?

I was in school so I saw him on my school breaks so every 3 months or so.

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?

I always went to him, he was military so it was easier for me to manuever.

Do you talk on the phone? or text? or email?

Phone mostly to the point we’re he was my background picture and I would jokingly call the phone my boyfriend.  Sometimes we would text.
