I have had a different experience with long-distance relationships, in a good way. My fiancé and I met and started dating 8 years ago, and he is from Indiana, while I am from South Carolina. A year later, he joined the Marines, and thus was in various parts of the United States as well as overseas for 4 years. It hasn't been easy by many means, but we are much stronger than most couples our age are because of the fact that we have put our communication and relationship first. So, I think that if you both really want it, you both are willing to work very hard at it, and you both are dedicated, then it works out even better in the end.
