Have you ever been in love with someone long distance?

My wife is Iranian and I'm French Canadian.

We got married after chatting for about 9 months on Viber and once we were married, it took about 6 months for us to be able to live together in Canada.

  2. It actually can be quite frustrating at times.
  3. In our case, it helped us learn how to have meaningful conversations. Sex can be a way to avoid getting to know each other; for the first months, that's a problem we didn't have.
  4. It's definitely possible.
  5. You need to be mature about it.
  6. I don't advise it for teenagers. When hormones are in charge of your brain, it's hard to sustain a long distance relationship.
