You Asked: Can a Long Distance Relationship Work?

Dear Sugar--

Last night I went out with a friend and her husband. We were dancing and having a good time. I didn't have a date with me and I was content with that. There weren't any strange guys coming up to me with cheesy pick up lines. I was having a blast.

Around 1am a wedding party came in. Two guys approached me. One was obnoxious and used a line on me. The other one was nice and quiet with a great smile and gorgeous eyes. Soon he asked me to dance and we stayed at each other's sides the entire night. Afterwards, everyone went to grab a 3 a.m. bite to eat at the local Waffle House. He introduced me to the entire wedding party and I thought surely he'd ask for my number and we would go on many dates, and blah blah.....Little did I know, he lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and I live in Georgia! So we stayed up talking at my friend's house until 6 a.m and I took him back to his hotel at 9:30 a.m.

Now here is the problem: I have found the perfect guy but he lives so far away! He did get my number and said he will call when he arrives home safely this evening. I can't help but fantasize about this relationship actually working. What am I supposed to do? I am the pickiest person in the world when it comes to guys and I don't wanna let this one slip away! HELP!! Will it work?

Dear In Love in Georgia--

That's so awesome that you finally found a great guy, but what a bummer that he lives so far away! Your best bet is to wait for him to call you so you two can get to know each other a little bit more. See what he thinks -- ask him if he felt like there was a connection between you two and if he wants to see where this could go.

Some people find it difficult to be in a relationship with the other person isn't physically with them, but for other couples, they make it work. Long distance relationships are not easy, especially when you start off that way, but they are possible. It could be really exciting to get to know each other by talking on the phone and writing emails, and then you never know -- if you develop a bond that is unique, perhaps you can explore the possibility of moving to Philly, or him moving to Georgia. I'd say if he's willing to seeing where this can go, it's worth giving it your best shot. Good luck!
