Yes, I've heard of the stories of people from different US states having long-distance relationships and eventually flying to each other and meeting up that way. But I get the feeling that this is very atypical. So the question is, typically, what is the furthest distance you should consider travelling for a relationship with someone if it's to stand a good chance of success?
I am dating someone who is about an hour's drive away and they have stated that they're concerned about the distance. We both have cars so it's about half an hour's drive to meet up half way. It doesn't seem like too much distance to me but am I being unrealistic? What hurdles would this kind of distance present long-term and would they be likely to cause the relationship to fail. Furthermore, if these hurdles are not too bad, how can I communicate to the other person that the distance is not prohibitive?
