It won’t be great but two hours is not that bad. You can still see each other every weekend if you wanted. Plus with a new job you’ll be plenty busy. You don’t know anything until you attempt it so there is no telling how you’d handle it. I did an LDR my first year in college and was just like you. So in love and so certain we could make it work. I quickly realized the relationship was doomed though b/c after about 3 weeks I didn’t miss him and I started to be annoyed by his phone calls. We had been attached at each others hips for a year and then poof! Not saying thats what will happen but just that you don’t know how you personally will react until you are in the situation.

When Darling Husband and I met, he traveled every week for work.  So I’d only get to see him Friday – Sunday anyway.  We got into a nice little routine.  I’d hang out with my friends during the week, run errands, etc.  Then on the weekends, Darling Husband and I would hang out.  We’d talk every night while he was out of town.  It was just normal to us.  When he stopped traveling and was around all the time, it was weird for a while. 

You’ll be able to see each other every weekend, so you can easily make it work.  Just keep communicating to each other.

It’s not as bad as it sounds.  My fiancé and I have been together for 4 years now.  For the first year I was on the West Coast and he was on the East Coast.  We kept it casual b/c clearly it is tough to date someone on opposite coasts.  After the first year I realized he was someone special and I wanted to make a go of it, so I moved back home.  We became inseparable.  This made it difficult when he received a job offer 2 hours away (another few months and he can work from home 3 days a week, and be in the office 2 days a week).  It’s been about 14 months of long distance.  We only see each other on weekends.  Originally we planned on meeting for dinner once a week, but our work schedules are both crazy and that has not happened.  It’s tough but we love each other and we know it’s not permanent.  We’ve actually grown to enjoy the time apart and cherish the time together.  The old adage is true- Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

  • Wedding: June 2011

My Fiance and I live 150 miles apart (about 2.5 hour drive) and we see eachother only 1 weekend a month. It is hard to be apart, we lived in the same town for 18 months but then I got a job that I had to move for until June when we get married. During the week we use Skype to talk, and to see eachother. We Skype every night at 8:30pm, for a hour. It makes it easier because you see eachother and you know at 8:30 that is your time to talk to him, it helps me get through each and every day. 

It will make you closer in your relationship I believe, it has helped us talk about a lot of things, and realize many things. We are more excited than ever to be getting married in June, and we know June 18th will be the day we will be together, no more distance… but just to start our life, where ever he gets a job after graduation 🙂

I recommend Skype though 🙂 Good Luck!
