Distance means so little, when someone means so much. Many people advise that long distance relationships never work out and they caution against this type of relationship. When the love and devotion that you feel for someone is true and deep it can survive almost any challenge though, even when a long distance separates you from the one that you long to be with. The distance seems to shrink when you care about someone and you are willing to go that extra step or two just to hear their voice. While you are apart you long to be with them, and this makes the time that you do have together that much sweeter. If the love is meant to be then it can stand the test of time and distance, and if it is ill fated then even living next door to each other will not change this fact. Don't let distance discourage you from continuing a relationship, just make sure that you have realistic expectations so that you can go the distance.
