Hi!, I just registered today but I've been wandering around this site for a while and I just thought it would be kinda neat to hear from all the people that are in long distance relationships.

I'm in one myself and it's my second relationship but my first ldr and I love it! Or rather I love him hehe
So one day I went online and looked for other peoples stories and was shocked to find that most were about how horrible ldr's are and how they never work out, but being as in love as I am I refuse to beleive it!
All it's takes it communication and dedication,or atleast that's what I think

So I hope to hear from you all

And as for my wonderful ldr,
He lives in Canada and I live in the US. Sometimes it's hard to be so far apart but we're just happy that we found eachother.
With a little luck and a job he might come here for Christmas!

I'm guessing you haven't yet noticed, but the Search function is about the coolest darned thing ever. We've got more threads on LDR's than I could count, but I've taken the liberty of posting some links up above where you can add comments and the like. We like to keep things neat and orderly here, and two dozen threads on LDR's (some from as recently as a day ago) can make things rather messy.

Glad to hear you're happy with your relationship! It's a rarity in this forum. And yes, like any other relationship, a long-distance one will succeed if both parties are committed to working through the problems that crop up. The troubles may be different ones than the sort local couples deal with, but it's all the same deal in the end. Those who work together at it succeed, those who don't fail.

As a side note, what sort of visa will your boyfriend have upon his entry this year (if it goes through)? Customs has cracked down like you wouldn't believe, and you really need to make sure you do things the right way if you want this to succeed. I'm going through a similar hell now and don't really have much time to get things sorted out. So I'd advise you to start planning today if you can. Some visas take upwards of eight months to go through, and Christmas is just five short months away. Good luck!

Crap! This is the second time I've messed up and I've only been registered for a couple of hours Sorry Dan, if I can call you that.
Yes, I knew about the search thing, I've actually used it to find topics on LDRs and I've read every single one of them a couple of times.I just saw that they hadn't been posted in for quite a while and I didn't think my topic was the same as those, but I guess it is. Again I say I'm sorry.

And as for the whole visa thing? I have no idea as to what you're talking about so it looks like we (My bf and I) have some talking and researching to do hehe.

Would it be to much trouble if I asked you to help me to better understand this?

You may. Interestingly enough, it is only right here on this board that I go by that. It's strictly "Danny" to my friends. You may choose your poison.

And the apology is most certainly accepted. You're new, and you're definitely welcome here...we just like to keep things orderly enough that we can find our own way around. And since the 107 degree heat today has melted my brain down to mush, I could use all the neatness and simplicity I get.

Is your boyfriend planning on coming down here for a visit, or is he planning on staying permanently? If he's visiting, he can be here for 90 days without the Feds kicking your door down, so long as he's got a passport (or a form of ID and a birth certificate) with him. However, if he's planning on coming down for a longer while, or if he wants to get a job...he'll need a visa in order to do that. It's basically an official permission slip from the US Government stating that he's allowed to come here and enjoy our hospitality so long as he behaves himself. Visas are a royal pain in the rear, and can take months to fill out. So at this point, I hope for his sake he's just visiting!

Oh I get it now
Thank you for clearing that up for me Dan hehe
He's only coming to visit for Christmas (Hopefully) and he'll probably stay until sometime after New Years and then go back
But I'd be glad just to be with him for that long.
And as for the heat thing, I feel your pain.
