    That's where it gets complicated. We are both single parents, and our children's mother/father live in the states where we currently reside. He is in Colorado and I am in Washington State. So, it's nearly impossible to relocate.

    I think I am going to give up.

    Let him know how you feel and good luck
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    I think giving up on it would be for the best. It would not be fair to up-root either your or his child/children from their grandparents, friends, school and from everything they know, all for the sake of a relationship which inevitably (like all romantic relationships) has at best only a 50/50 chance of going the distance. What sort of a message would that be sending them? That their needs come second to yours that's what!

    You should restrict yourself to men living within about a 50 mile radius of your house who are single or divorced (with the papers finalized) and realistically, with a decent job and between the ages of about 28 and 40.
    There has to be at least one out there for you somewhere.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    I was in a long-distance relationship with a guy in Wales (ok it's only in the UK but when you're a student it's worth pretending there's another 1,000 miles seeing as you're poor as hell, and I'm only 19, but my boyfriend was 6 years my senior). It turned out working better being long distance then how it was when we were actually living near each other.

    I guess to try and have someone look after your kids for a weekend and both go away together and see how it goes.

    *it lasted over a year too, and probably ended for me because the other person concerned was way too obsessive about everything I did, so it really does depend on how the people involved act. Good luck in whatever you decide!

    It could work out, but I don't think it's fair to move the kids to a new town/school/home when the relationship might not work.

    You get along great long distance, but living next to each other could change all that.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.

    'Never give up'...IS NOT JUST words, its a lesson...!
    whether its relationship or some competition you should never lose faith....!

    ya, but long distance is always half string attached...,cause you're not there for each other when needed most...!

    Have had some long distance involvements, usually never turned out for the better. It would often turn sour over little incidents that would have been mere hiccups and fairly easy to overcome if the distance was not there, but that were unsolvable with the distance. I would opt for long distance again if it was truly meant to be, however I intend to concentrate my efforts on more local girls for now, even if it ends up as long distance at some point, there will be more of a basis to work from.

    Generally though and on the OP's case: Where a will, there a way. Where no way, there no future. If children are involved on both sides, I suppose it is more difficult, you wouldn't want to tear them from their familiar surroundings. Still, if it is meant to be, then the change of surroundings might even be beneficial to the children in one way or the other, at any case when children are involved, their welfare should come first.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Depends how far the distance is if it is within a few hours of driving, then fine. In my experience, they never work out and I always end up heartbroken. I have had 2 LD relationships.
    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    Served in the Military for 21 years had one fiance who couldn't take it, and we split. But have been married to my wife for 17 years now, 12 while I was still in. I guess it depends on the person and if they know what they are getting into, and are willing to except it. It is nice today with the internet and such for keeping in contact. I never had this in the mid 80s. Who knows maybe things could have been different. But I am happy how it has worked out.

    If it is a relationship where genuine love is involved then definitely not. I can't stand to be away from someone I love for too long. If they are visiting with relatives for a week, or because their job requires occasional and brief travel then that is understandable. But to have to wait months at a time is unacceptable to me, and long distance relationships are often this way. I've never understood people who do not consider this to be an obstacle in making a relationship work. I would want to know from the very beginning if a prospective mate is going to be away for long periods of time.
