I know you browse this, thanks for saying yes!
After almost 8 years of long distance I (M26) asked my now fiancé (F24) to marry me. I took this picture very quickly a second before she turned around. Our days apart will be over soon!
The love of my(50’s) life passed away this morning. He(60’s) was planning to close the distance this fall, so here I am, heartbroken but I’m glad he is no longer in pain. I am leaving this sub cause I’m hurting so much right now. Please, love your partner so hard, so deep, so much, forever.
Husband him. Husband him now.

Closing the distance today after over 2000 days, so here's a photo of us!
Me five minutes after picking my bf up at the airport.
She (17) worked and saved for 8 months to come meet me (16) with her mom in South Florida from Texas. I couldn’t be happier. You can tell by the stupid smile on my face.
LDR Boyfriend Coming To Visit In a Week Starter Pack
Haven’t lived together since our college graduation. 4.5 years later, we are closing the gap!
“Flights are too expensive” is the best cover story. She has no idea I’m gonna surprise her in a few hours!
None of us are in a relationship, but we have been long distance best friends as kids since 2011! I was from Idaho, they are from Texas. They drove 14 hours to see me in my new home in Florida for the weekend, and had the best time of our lives!
Stumbled upon a relatable image
Long time lurker - Nearly five years ago, I turned off the OKCupid location filter and found my highest match in the world, thought it would be funny to send him a message. We spent 3.5 years living nearly 4000 miles apart. We now live in Ireland, this is one of our engagement photos. [UK-USA]
Came across this relatable comic
After 3 years of LDR because of university, he finally graduated and popped the question yesterday! We’re engaged!!!
People will believe what they want about long distance, but man is it worth the wait. This picture was taken 1.5 years ago and we just found out we're expecting!
This came up in a group chat discussion about LDRs
Celebrating 2 years of LDR in Turkey!
When I go visit my GF in France
20 hours of flying to see her was more than worth it (USA-China)
Got to see my love in Miami this weekend! We have two years before we close the gap but we try to make our monthly visits as indulgent and exciting as possible.
Two years long distance from the UK to Australia, then 18 months of pure joy finally living in the same country, then THIS. I couldn't be happier, and I have to say, the distance was ALL worth it for the life we have now.
me before my bf comes in July
My(21f), bf(20m) and I were in a LDR with no clear end, then his family home was destroyed by hurricane Irma. After, I offered him my home, and we haven’t left each others side since. Hes the strongest, most grateful man I know. I will love and support you through every hardship.
[M24/F21] 6 months and counting. She's from Hong Kong and I'm from the USA. We can only see each other during holiday breaks due to school, but hoping we can live together in a few years 😭😭. Long distance is a drag, but she's my literally my favorite person ever and I wouldn't trade for anything.
[F24&F22] 681 days, lots of flights from NY to LDN, airport greetings and tears later...WE'VE FINALLY CLOSED THE DISTANCE!
She [US] got accepted into grad school in my country [UK] she’s moving here permanently!!! Can’t wait to ask her.
38 days left to finally close the distance! Together for 2years and 4months! YAY! Portuguese traveling to Canada. Amo-te meu amor ❤️🥂
Valentine’s card i drew!
My S/O got accepted into the college where I live! Closing the distance sooner than I thought and I'm so damn happy!
After 7 months and a planned trip that didn't pan out, finally together for almost a month.
Just seeing there face makes all the pain go away
Finally reunited! We have an entire week together this time!🧡
Our love is stronger than the distance. Just passed 1,5 year of being together!
(24M/23F) We live in opposite hemispheres. Our visits have unfortunately always been Winters. Looking to finally mix it up and move to Canada in 3 months. All 4 seasons together here we come
makes me sleep 10 times better
I found the solution to watching movies together long distance! Zoom.us lets you video call somebody and then you can share your screen! The connection is perfect and date night is back.
For the first time, we both accidentally fell asleep while FaceTiming.... when I woke up, I opened my eyes and he was still there, sleepily saying “baby?” It was almost as good as the real thing.
She (F48) flew from the USA to Australia to meet me (M46). I’m excited for our future.
Bye-bye long distance! He moved to Nebraska today☺️☺️
Just found this sub, made this for my boyfriend around a month ago.
I can't wait
We Eloped!! So long, long distance sub! Best of luck to you all!! 💕💐
After nearly two years of LDR, I moved across the world, to the Netherlands to be with him! Here’s us having a middle of the week date night, because now we can!
Update: she said yes!
33M USA >> 36F Spain. From meeting on an airplane in Thailand in 2016, moving to a new country in 2017, to having a baby in 2018...a busy LDR filled with ups and downs and everything in between. When life throws you chance encounters - take them!
200 days after we closed the distance. Still rocking this!
My girlfriend and I just closed the gap! I can say I am starting off the new year with the love of my life moving in with me! We couldn't be happier♡ Hang in there everyone. You got this!
After 2 years, I (20F) finally met my girlfriend (19F) for the first time! It was hard saying goodbye, but we're planning to meet again next year!
Closed the distance after 4 years of LDR at different universities -- Now grad students at the same school!
Long distance relationships in a nut shell
5 years of long distance ended this weekend
Met on Reddit March 2015, now together forever and legally wed 💕
When you see your SO
2 years of living hundreds of miles apart, we (f 21, m 22) finally closed the gap! We’re home.
My wife (Brazil) and I (USA) closed the distance this year. We will be adding one to our little family soon.
I don’t know if anyone remembers, but I’m the one who had their long distance partner pass away in June. I found out from his parents that he was going to propose to me the next time he saw me, & they got the ring to me. I wish I could have closed the distance with my soulmate but now it’s permanent
4.5 years led us to this moment
I appreciate it so much when artists acknowledge us long distancers!
I’m guilty of this 🤗
sleeping on the same bed while we’re a thousand miles away from eachother:
She said yes!
my husband & I (UK/US) finally closed the 5250+ mi distance! after 7.5 years of loving each other from afar, i moved from AZ to England. it’s so surreal to be in the same place. no more visa paperwork to worry about (for now), finally being able to fall asleep together every night... it’s a dream!
LDR for 2y4months. Since April it’s been 3months since we are together with no more goodbyes! We want to give some strength and hope for those who are LDR! Take care guys!
Had a shitty week and I get home from work in a bad mood, sick and on my period to see that my BF (M22) sent me (F20) a giant teddy bear :-)
2 Years long distance and finally moved in together! Old habits die hard LOL
This movie is mocking us
I SAID “YES!!!” ❤️💍
I think most of us can relate from this. 😂
This applies to a lot of people in general
After two years of long distance, we finally had such a fabulous day with so much joys. We have been through some hardships and difficulties during the past two years but all these are worth it! Love is beyond countries and distances! ❤️ 💕
We (24F/SG) (22M/UK) finally got married 2 weeks ago, after 5 years of long distance! Now it's on to the visa process. This is us after signing the papers, in a karaoke room 😊
Even bigger one when you’re long distance
Me (F25) and Him (M26) we are officially closing the gap. From Italy to USA. Thank you for this magnificent subreddit, always there to support each other.
You lived in Texas and you were my bestest friend in elementary school. You moved out of state and came back during high school. Then I moved out of state for college. We are literally never together but my heart is always with you. I know we can survive LDR. I love you.
We accidentally met in Denmark and didn’t like each other at all. He found me a stupid diva, and I thought he was too boring and nerdy. A weird misunderstanding made us stay and changed our lives forever. Now we don’t know other life but together. We’re the power. You’re my Viking. I love you.
My girlfriend and I move in together next week. It’s surreal to take in, but after years of FaceTiming, hour long phone calls, trying to sync movies to watch at the same time, having virtual date nights... all led to this. This has been something I only dreamed of ever happening. I cannot wait💞
Me and My Girl 💕 Five more days until I see her again.
After 8 years of online friendship, almost 4 years of LDR starting as nevermets, from WA to AZ... WE CLOSED THE DISTANCE TODAY!
She said yes two weeks ago!
(M,21) Australian boy flies to the Philippines to visit (M, 22) Filipino boyfriend on his birthday for one whole week! Being a homosexual couple in a south east asian country is difficult so this moment is incredibly important to me. He's gonna return home soon and I'll miss him very much!
Shhhhhh!!!!! Don’t tell him (60’sM) but I(50’sF) am flying up (KY-NJ) to see him tomorrow afternoon AND HE DOESNT KNOW IT!!!! I’m beside myself with excitement!!!
Apparently it doesn’t take a lot of baggage to move to another country. Today is the day folks, a little snow doesn’t stop your girl 😊
We (Me: 27-M-US, him: 21-M-CAN) already exchanged letters and gifts. He took off time from work to spend time with me on video chat for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I’m two hours ahead of him yet he manages to send me good morning texts just as I leave my house. Love knows no distance.🥰
Just 5 weeks away before flying over to pop the question!
I (M/23) have not posted on r/longdistance in over two years. More than five years together with this girl (F/23), and we're still going strong. I am currently visiting her, and we are having a blast! Counting on closing the distance in four years!
After years ( and I mean a lot of YEARS ) of Skyping and texting, I finally got to meet the love of my life. Long distance is hard, but boy it is worth it.
Going to be leaving this sub soon!! Closing the distance! 😍💍
We closed the gap! He’s from Cali, I’m from FL, we met in the middle and got our first apartment together in Colorado. Goodbye LD :-)
Answered the easiest question of my life this week after recently closing the gap. Worth every minute of the wait.
SHE WALKS THROUGH THOSE DOORS IN THIRTY MINUTES!!!!!!!!!
Celebrating 5 years of our LDR! UK(M/25)<->USA(F/26)
Me (19F) and my boyfriend (19M) in Utah:) I went to visit him Presidents’ Day weekend and I’m looking through the pictures in the hunt for a new wallpaper. This seems to be the winner so far:)
No more long distance. He’s home!!
3 years and many boarding passes later, we have finally closed the distance! [UK - US]
Just got married!! I have to leave in a week but we'll be together again soon. There is hope!
I (20/M) got to spend a week with the love of my life (19/F) after our first six months of long distance and i'm glad to say nothing has changed and i couldn't be happier. (Uruguay to Portugal)
The case with all of us
[Comic] Never been so happy for other couples!
For a weekend, 1,455 miles away turned to 0 last week. Every very time I’m with her it’s like nothing else in the world matters.
Well well, we got married last month. France vs Kenya. Long distance for 3 and 1/2 years now. Things became much better as I moved to study in Germany from Kenya. Will be seeing my husband in 2 weeks again 💕💕💕. Ours has been a roller-coaster of everything, I will share the stories in bits later.
After the long K1 process getting her here from Brazil, we’ve finally gotten married! Peace at last, my life is now complete.
It's 100 days today since we closed the distance. I didn't know life could be this happy :) Happy 2019, everyone!
Falling asleep with her even when we’re 1,000 miles apart gives me the warmest feelings. 😊
After sharing a tearful airport goodbye with my [F25] SO [F24] who is leaving for 3 months, & already overwhelmed by a really awful week, I arrived home to find these tucked away in a corner. She's sneaky. I love her so much.
Real life girlfriend is WAY better than phone screen girlfriend. I'm the happiest bean alive right now 🥰🥰😭😭 (update from my airport post earlier today)
Just picked up my guy from the airport & he showed me a picture of my late Christmas gift: a vanity he built for me at his place for when we close the distance ❤️
I’m new here but wanted to share a long distance success story.. After 5 years of an 8000 km long distance relationship between the USA and Europe, he proposed! ❤️
The saddest meal after having so many dinners with your love.
Proposed to my LDR yesterday and SHE SAID YES!!
Another big milestone!! We finally met after 5 years of being online 3 months ago and today we went to his home state. I met his daughter from a previous relationship and his family. Best day ever🥰🥰
Wish us luck! Tomorrow is my Green Card Interview and hopefully we can be together forever! ❤️
Made this for our one year! Really pleased with how it turned out :)
It's been 4 months but this part still feels like the longest wait...
Currently spending my [23F] Christmas with him [21M] before he flies 7000+ miles back home. Bringing him to meet my parents for the first time tomorrow, wish me luck!
After meeting online and being best friends for 8 years despite being 7 states away, countless Skype dates, finally meeting in person 2 years ago, and dating LD for 1.5 years, we now live together and couldn’t be happier. I just wanted to share and say that it DOES work out, and it IS worth it!
We (24m/24f) closed the distance!
[22M&22F] Watched my girlfriend depart from Melbourne Airport this evening. 4 months since the first date, she's now returning home to South Korea and the LDR officially begins. It will be a hard journey but this subreddit sparks so much hope, we gonna make it.
After 2 days of driving, his journey is complete! We've (30M/32F) closed the gap!
Los Angeles and Singapore. A mutual friend connected us online. And I married her earlier this month!
He (M/22) sent me (F/22) flowers to tell me he’s booked his flight to come to NYC! I’ll be seeing him again in 90 days 😫
Sometimes sad memes help get us through it
Just spent a month together in Chicago; tomorrow I have to take him to the airport. Until October when I see him in Paris 😍
The distance is killing me tonight, but it eases me knowing that the time we get to spend together is more important than anything in our own worlds. i love this woman
I [24F] married the love of my life [24M] on Sunday and now our adventure continues. Only two more months of LD before we move into our apartment together! Best of wishes to all of you! :)
finally the truth is spoken
Met my soulmate last year, 2 months later, I meet him in person in Canada, and since then, we‘ve been seeing each other frequently. Traveling constantly from Brazil to Canada, has been exhausting but worthy ever single dime! Psyched to see him in 3 week! ❤️🇧🇷🇨🇦
Been lurking for years since I started my LDR. Finally some good news!!! Closing the distance in two days!!! California to North Carolina for two years. He’s my best friend, soul mate, lover and protector. Have never been so happy and excited for change this big in my life. We did it babe!!!!!!
Finally its my turn to post this! We closed the distance after 3.5 long years!
Airport day - We're apart again after one year together, ~9 months to go.
After 3 and a half years of distance, at times almost 7500 miles away, I bought this for my best friend in the entire world.
Gap closed and we’re starting 2019 together in OUR apartment
I PASSED my visa interview! WE’VE BEEN APPROVED! 🎉💕
We closed the gap a while ago and when we moved together we were finally able to have the flat and life we always dreamed of. I am in love with the way that picture represents where we came from, what is happening right now and where we want to go. Keep working on your LDR, it is so worth it :-)
My SO sent me flowers 💐
When you’re about to start your period and are super emotional and craving affection but your SO is 1,413 miles away
I’ve been lurking for months now and finally decided to post. We got married on Friday after two and a half years! Can’t wait to close the distance with my love.
We couldn’t stop laughing, holding hands, kissing and thinking “this person in front of me is my soulmate.” We are going to spend our first Christmas together. Distance, flying, hard times... Nothing matters if in few years, at the end of the day I will be in your arms, making plans about our family
When you can’t dine together properly for your 1 year celebration, you make do
We fell in love, even though an ocean separated us. Seven months LDR, two years in the US, six months in the UK, five months LDR, and now we're permanently together in the UK. Here's a photo from our wedding in 2016. Stay strong, guys!
And we finally met after two long months❤
On the left, my fiancé (M23) and the right is myself (M27) celebrating his birthday last month at Magic Kingdom. We hit two years on his birthday and I kicked off his holiday with a proposal! Just wanted to share my story with this amazing subreddit that keeps me sane. Good luck to all of you! :)
I [F 28 N.Ireland] met my girlfriend [F 35 Ca, USA] on Reddit. Started out as friendly pen pals and grew into something so special when we both least expected it. We met for the first time in December 18 when she flew to Belfast. Safe to say we fell completely in love with each other ❤️
A 14 hour time difference is hard but texts like these make it so worth it ♥️
She’s from Texas, I’m from England. After 2 years of friendship, 2 years of long distance dating and a year of being engaged, here we are a few weeks ago getting married.
