Lost on Transit Review with images

AdvantagesIntense memorable times

DisadvantagesEmotions got lost in translation

"...future with me. Something we can work to, yes; it was real.My trip back to the UK was always bleak, travelling back was heart wrenching, however this time was different.

I was trying to sound strong, made sure I breathed in deeply, chest back, diaphragm lifted. On departing, ..." Read review

Do I win the prize for the longest distance?

AdvantagesSome are succesful

DisadvantagesIt is hard work and requires sacrifice and adaptability

"...family I think that we can say that the long distances proved an obstacle but provided you are determined to make things work and you are prepared to sacrifice a lot as I did leaving all family here and my son has at present too then it can work.

Distance means so little when someone means so much. Review with images

Advantagesnone

I shall tell you about that and the way we ..." Read review

Loving by landline.

AdvantagesIt could work.

DisadvantagesIt could not work.

"...others may find that they can continue on in a long distance relationship with no other issues. Of course there is the whole area and issue of trusting them to remainfaithful to you, but of course if you truly love someone then this should automatically come in to it. You can make your relationship work just as much as two people who live in the same town, by you both putting in the same amount of time and effort to the relationship. ..." Read review
