Would you ever enter into a long-distance relationship, guys? Why or why not?
We are bringing this up because we often stumble upon a thread online discussing this topic. For instance, this one wherein the original poster related:
I realize that, FOR EXAMPLE, on dating apps even if you’re in the same country, if you aren’t right next door to the guy, he will lose interest in ever even dating you. Guys. What I want from you are some success stories about gay long distance relationships. Make my day. Give us all some hope. Some of us come from small towns or there’s just no one for us where we’re from. I want to hear stories of how long distance relationships have worked out for you.
Meanwhile, on a separate thread, another guy is asking readers about their experiences with long-distance relationships. He shared:
So, I was on this gay sex site doing a video call with a guy, and he found me sexy and attractive, and we had a nice convo for about half an hour. We flirted and showed off to each other, and we even communicate. He said he doesn’t want to engage in an LDR because it can be rough, though I have no experience. We’re still friends, though he’s looking at local guys for his dating stuff. How have your experiences been in long-distance relationships, especially if you’ve had one in your early 20s?
Personally, I think that if the two of you really love each other, then a long-distance relationship will work. I am only saying this because I have seen it work out with some friends but mind you, the keyword here is, well, work. This means that the two of you would need to put in a lot of effort in order for your relationship to be successful and for you guys to be happy.
From what I have observed, my friend and his other half took advantage of technology and called each other every day. They also visit each other’s countries.
Yes, they were many countries apart. If the other has been to the US already last year, then the other would visit the Philippines next. They’d go explore their respective countries together, too, and make the most out of their limited time together. They make it fun, they have scheduled calls and visits and they stick to it.
But most importantly, the two of them knew that such a setup was temporary which is why they’ve made plans for their future. They wanted to spend the rest of their lives together and so, after being in a long-distance relationship for five years, they finally tied the knot and they now both reside in the US where they live happily ever after.
Having said all that, have you ever been in a long-distance relationship, guys? If so, how did that work out for you? Share with us your thoughts and stories in the comments section below!
