“Lost on Transit”

published 20/04/2012

ProIntense memorable times

ContraEmotions got lost in translation

I asked myself the same question while sitting on a plane, just about to depart from Prague, back to London Heathrow. Journey time close to 2 hours, conditions permitting: scattered showers were forecast in London on arrival. Soft movie music was playing a dramatic scene that seemed to whisk me...

Do I win the prize for long distance?I met my first husband in Malaysia in 1972 while I was on holiday there staying with my parents who lived there. He was Australian and in the Airforce. We corresponded when I came back to university and this went on for a couple of years, remember we had no...

“Long Distance Lover”

published 16/04/2012

ProLove literally knows no boundaries

ContraReliant on technology - lack of physical contact

I wrote in to suggest this particular topic as it is one very close and dear to my heart. I have recently returned from a holiday to the USA to meet a girl I had been talking to online. It isn't quite as risky as it sounds because we had shared friends in each country, so we weren't total...

The answer to that question is that it can do. I am assuming most people reading that question will think of boy, girl love relationships but I think that it can also relate to friendship relationships between two people. I have many long distance friendships of 40 years involving the occasional...

Can Long Distance Relationships Work?I will start of by saying, I haven't ever been in a long distance relationship. I have, however, seen it crush my of my close friends. It was going so well, they were engaged and had a date for the wedding and everything and she let him down. One of the...

What follows is basically a musing on the question - does it answer it? Actually, no, probably not. I set out to say that relationships can't really be sustained at long-distance, but ended up raising more questions than I answered I think. All I will say is: kudos to those who manage it. It...

ProTake a leap of faith and have it pay off!

ContraNone for me!

Can long distance relationships work? I can answer a resounding 'yes' to that. When people ask this question it usually means long distance relationship within the same country. My long distance relationship was with a girl in Holland after moving to Holland five years ago, we are still together...

“Loving by landline. ”

ProIt could work.

ContraIt could not work.

In the past, I have had a long distance relationship that I would just like to use as my own example for writing this review. It was with an individual who was about two orthree years older than me, and although the distance wasn't too great for us to be apart it still was far enough for us to...

I’ve never written a Current Issue review before but this one struck a chord. I met my boyfriend roughly 4 and a half years ago when he started work with me. He was coming up to 17 and I was……..23! He was one of the nicest people I’d ever met, though I never thought of him in ‘that’ way just...

Contrayou don't really know who is behind the computer

Yes! I do believe in long distance relationships, and here is my story. Before then I had only one relationship, and one I will never forget, but not as you'd like to. He was abusive, and always said that no one else would ever love me after him. I was only 13. We was together for a full 4 years...

ProSometimes absence makes the heart founder

ContraDistance is a barrier, people need companionship.

Distance relationships can work provided that there is some sort of communication and ocassionally meeting each other, but one must keep in mind where is this relationship going. Living apart will be difficult through time, compromise will eventually be the only option available. I was transfered...
