I am kind of on the fence with this one, I think they can work but both parties need to really put the effort in. They also can not be based on physical interaction only, there needs to be a real friendship there.
I have been OK with it a long time ago
I honestly think long distance relationships can work if there is the promise of something serious and also if the parties are willing to throw their efforts into it. Nopwithstanding the fact, that u must really feel for each other. Thats my two cent.lol
