    LDR and out of the honeymoon phase...

    5
    I'm in an international long distance relationship (I'm in the US, he's in the UK) and after about a year and a half I think we're out of the honeymoon phase of our relationship.  Neither of us has been in a relationship for this long before.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep the spark alive?

    Hi I have been in my long distance relationship for 15mths now. We live 3hours apart and get to see each other once a week. I'm really struggling with establishing an emotional intimacy and connection with my boyfriend. I love him incredibly and we text often and we speak on the phone briefly most nights. When we do talk I ask him questions but he gives me the very basic replies/ good/ yeah/...

    Hi!Ive been looking for this sort of support group for a while! I'm in a LDR (international) and find it very difficult. No one really understands the situation and the pain you feel whilst in a LDR, so it would be great to chat to people who are in a similar situation! I have 4 more months until I see my boyfriend again... And we've been long distance for around 6 months so far, with 2 visits in...

    Don't Listen To The Negative People

    I started dating my girlfriend towards the end of my Senior year in High School. She's a year younger than me, so we both avoided the talk about what would happen after I graduated. To make matters worse, we both knew I would be starting college at New York University next fall. She would remain in my hometown in Southern California. 3,000 miles plus. Everyone I knew basically told me to cut off...

    Hi! I'm kinda new here and just wanted to connect with some other people in a long distance relationship. I don't really meet many people I can't relate with when it comes to my long distance relationship so it'd be really cool if I could talk to some people about it :) Message me :)

    I've been in an ldr for 2 1/2 years.  My (boyfriend), has a female "best friend," who didn't want to meet me.  She would constantly text him and vice versa.  I got her number and texted her, as well as in the last 2 months spoke with her.  She said that they are together everynight and he denies that I heard what she said was correct, because she's from the south.  My real question:  has...

    What changed?

    I have been in a long distance relationship for almost 5 months. My boyfriend lives in the UK and I live in South Africa. I last saw my boyfriend in December, and he'll be flying out in April. Everything has been going really great, but we've hit a wobble and it feels like it's constantly going downhill. He is quick to blame, has become overly selfish and it feels as if it is a constant struggle...
