How far away are you two?

Almost 5,300 miles. I am in Arizona, and he is in England.

How often do you see each other?

Whenever we can. The shortest time we have gone between visits is about two months. Currently the longest has been about four and a half months, and that is the usual.

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

He comes over and stays at my apartment or I go and stay at his flat.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

We use a chat program to instant message a couple hours a day. We’ll usually Skype for a few hours every other weekend. If we can’t IM for whatever reason, we shoot each other Facebook messages or we’ll text. We try to keep the texting to the minimum though since it is pricey! In more pressing situations he has also called me, but again, pricey!

How far away are you two?

About 345miles. That’s 6 hours by car, 1 hour by plane.

How often do you see each other?

It’s varied between 3-5 weeks. Luckily, flights between us are only $138! But, it gets sticky coorinating with our work schedules and my two children.

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

We trade off, but he’s come to me more often.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email

Text all day, and phone at night.

How far away are you two?

15 hours time difference- 2 different continents. 36 hours to fly there, one way. He’s in Australia and I”m in Arizona

How often do you see each other?

Once a year πŸ™ The longest we went was 2 years, back when we first started talking.

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

We met in the middle once πŸ™‚ I’ve been to see him twice, and he’s been here once. He’ll be moving here next October when we get married.

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

We mostly text and talk on MSN. But he got a new phone and it’s been acting up, so we’ve been e-mailing a lot lately because our texts aren’t going through. πŸ™ Occasionally I will call him, but he actually really hates to talk on the phone, so it’s usually for special occasions or when I bug him :p Otherwise we text all the time and his phone bills are outrageous! My phone comes with unlimited international text, but it costs heaps in Australia :S

We are no longer LDR but I like filling out surveys πŸ™‚

 

How far away are you two? 759 Miles according to the airline

How often do you see each other? 2-3 times a month for 2-5 days per visit. I think the longest we went without a visit was 3 weeks.

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle?  I went to see him more often but only because I telecommuted at the time (still do) and he didn’t, so I could work from his home. That meant we could see each other for longer than just a weekend.  I’d say it was 50% me going to him, 30% him coming to me, and 20% meeting somewhere else (although never in the middle, lol usually we’d meet up somewhere on the other side of the country)

Talk on the phone? or text? or email  All of the above. We usually talked for 2-3 hours a night, texted and emailed constantly. We sent each other a lot of presents too.

We did this for 10 months or so, to the point where I had the airline timetables and route numbers memorized between our homes.  Then he was offered a telecommuting job and wasted no time grabbing it— 2 weeks later he flew up with a couple of big suitcases, started his new job, and 2 weeks after that we flew down together to pack up his apartment and drive up with a trailer full of his stuff. We were married just over 3 years after he moved in!

How far away are you two?

About 300 miles… He’s in MI, I’m in NY. Cutting through Canada I think takes 5 hours, through the US more.

How often do you see each other?

Usually about once a month. Sometimes a little more, sometimes less.

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

We take turns going to each other. We’ve met in the middle a couple times too. He comes here more since its technically “home,” as in where our families are. That and he doesn’t like the thought of me driving there.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

All of the above. We make it a point to talk on the phone every night. Usually during the day we e-mail or text throughout, depending on what we’ve got going on.

 

We’re almost done though. 7 months until we’re in the same place and married. It’s been about 14 months so far.

How far away are you two?

2.5 hour drive.

How often do you see each other?

Every weekend. Sometimes every other weekend if work/school things get in the way.

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

We switch every other weekend.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

We talk on the phone/facetime for at least an hour a day. We’ll text a few times a day, but don’t email too much.

How far away are you two? When apart, we’re 160 miles apart– I’m at grad school in southern New Hampshire, he’s at home in northern Vermont

How often do you see each other? Usually for each weekend, but sometimes we go 10 days or 2 weeks without seeing each other. 

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle? I usually come home to see him, but there are a few weekends when I can’t make it home because of classes on weekends, so he’ll visit me those times if he isn’t traveling elsewhere for work.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email? I like to talk on the phone, he doesn’t as much; we talk occasionally, and email occasionally. He doesn’t have a cell phone because there is no service where our home is, so we don’t text.

I feel so spoiled compared to the LDR bees who only see their SOs a few times a year, or are separated because of deployments. . . but it still sucks and is hard, because we lived together for 2 years before I started grad school. πŸ™

How far away are you two?

Well that depends on the day!  My fiance works on the road so he could be in Louisana one month and then in Ohio the next.  Right now he’s in Iowa and we live in Wisconsin – so not too far away. 

How often do you see each other?

LOL – once again depends on where he’s at.  We’ve gone as long as not seeing each for 3 months and as short as two weeks. 

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

I’ve gone to visit him on the road twice.  He usually has breaks in between jobs, and these are anywhere from a week or two to a few months. 

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

We talk on the phone about every other day and text every day.  I will send him pics via email too.

I used to be in an LDR so I’m going to answer to about when we were πŸ™‚

 

How far away are you two?

300 miles

 

How often do you see each other?

Once a month/once every 2 months

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

We did alternate visits, so he’d come see me then I’d go see him.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

We used to speak every night on the phone and text during the day. This was way before skype so we used to put the video chat on MSN messenger so we could see each other πŸ™‚

 

We did long distance for just over a year. Knowing we’d be moving in together on a set date made the process so much easier. I don’t think I could do it without an end goal!

I was in an LDR all through college but that ended when I graduated and we got engaged. 

How far away are you two? 150 miles/2.5 hours

How often do you see each other? we would see each other about every 2-3 weeks, less often during exams and more often during summer break.

Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle? we would alternate weekends most of the time, but I went to see him more because I generally liked where he lived more than where I lived.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email? We talked on the phone every day, multiple times a day, skyped most nights, and texted sometimes.

This no longer applies to us because he just recently moved in with me. πŸ™‚ But..

How far away were you two? I am in Virginia he was in California

How often do you see each other? We only ever went a couple months with out seeing each other and the time apart got less as he got closer to moving here.

 
Who goes to see who or do you meet in the middle? We would both go see each other. I would only get to stay around 5 days in Cali whenever I went cause I had school and work. He would stay here for a month or two at a time because he was only in school and took online classes.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email? Phone mostly we talked every day and night and sometimes skyped.

How far away are you two?

1,700 miles – I’m in Colorado and he lives in MD

How often do you see each other?

Since I’m a student in CO, I have a break of some kind no more than every 3 months.  Either he comes to CO or I go home to MD during every break.  I also go home for about a month around Christmas and around a month during the summer.

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

We’ve only “met in the middle” once and it was for my mother’s wedding, normally we take turns (except for holidays when I go to MD because that’s where my family is, also).

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

We text when he’s at work (He’s a police officer) and then we Skype when we have free time.  We have a bonkers schedule but we make it work πŸ™‚

How far away are you two?

2282 miles from doorstep to doorstep says mapquest.

How often do you see each other?

Used to be every 6 – 8 weeks until we started planning on moving me out there. Travel costs money so it’s more like every 3 – 4 months right now.

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

At first he came here, since he was also required to travel here for work. When they cut his travel budget and we started looking at logistics, I had all of the vacation time (about 14 weeks accumulated), I started flying there.

Talk on the phone? or text? or email?

He calls me and wakes me up for work every day Mon – Fri. We then have our regular chat session at 7pm every day, 7 days a week. Otherwise, text and email throughout the day.
