How long has your LDR been going on?

I’ve never met anyone with a longer LDR than what we did! MAJOR props to you!


We were -preschool- sweethearts. Yes, you read that correctly. We knew each other our whole lives and were best friends who waited until junior year of high school before risking our friendship with romance. We went to college 8 hours apart and only saw each other for 2-3 days every 2-3 months. After college we spent 2 years apart as we settled in to post-grad life, for a total of 6 years long distance.

I will admit it’s REALLY funny to see peoples’ faces when they ask how long I’ve known my (now) husband and I tell them “over 20 years,” but I hardly look a day over 20. 


Congrats to closing that distance! it takes some adjustment, but it’s the BEST feeling in the world!

We’ve been together for just over 8 years, and we’ve been long distance for almost 5 years.  I live in New Zealand, and he lives in Australia.

LDR for 2 years, across three different countries (I moved twice), and from next week it will be a long distance marriage for another year and a half (hopefully less if US immigration allows, haha).
