Can a man in NYC and a woman in North Carolina make it work?

Posted by Leticia, 24 May 10

For two people living in New York and North Carolina, it might take a lot to get them together for the long haul. But love has a funny way of bridging the greatest of distances. “I never thought we would be together,” Phyllis admits. “But one thing led to the next…”

After meeting Phyllis on the site, Marc was travelling to Miami to visit his mother and stopped by to take Phyllis out for lunch. “We had lots of fun and we felt really good about each other,” says Phyllis. “Marc was very caring from the start.”

Lunch turned into spending the afternoon together and before they knew it... dinner. It was a good start to something special. Suddenly, it made all the sense in the world for Marc to join Phyllis in North Carolina on a more long-term basis. So he did!

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

The couple are now engaged, with their wedding day approaching fast. “Marc is wonderful, understanding and very thoughtful,” Phyllis says of her man. “We’re together every day, getting to know each other, and my family loves him too!”

The truth is that when you know you’ve met the right person, where you live is just logistics. Love finds a way!

    Long distance isn't easy. Relationships aren't easy. Because of my professional life, it's nearly impossible, but it can and does work for many. I've been divorced for too long. I really believe that if your relationship is making life tougher, you are in the wrong relationship. For kelligirl, you can usually find time to do the things that you really want to do!

    I must say that I was truly skeptical about meeting someone I would even think of spending the rest of my life with over the internet, but it has happened and I must thank you to this website for my new found happiness. We have finally found each other all though we were hundreds of miles apart. I think that this new found happiness will last a life time. Thank you. Will keep you all informed with a wedding date.

      For Mr. Serenity33, In response your comments of making it work, you have to ask yourself "how can I make it work? ", and then just do it. You can't expect your partner to be in line to only your thoughts, it just doesn't work that way. You have to tell your partner that you will make it work, and do whatever it is necessary to keep the relationship. A woman's heart is only reciprocal as long as you reflect it, if you show some more initiative to making it work, then the woman of your choice will understand you really love her. You have to show that you are committed regardless of distance and make time for the woman you truly love. From what it looks like from your standpoint, I think you haven't found Ms. Right or either your desire isn't there. I suggest a self evaluation of one self and to understand one's emotional bound before dating. If you don't understand yourself first and foremost, then women can see right thru any man who is not stable and geared to committment. Being negative expresses a sign of anger, remorse and weakness and thus could haphazardly create destruction of a relationship. Therefore, please do a self evaluation of one self and understand why the relationship has failed and one's own self recognition will clearly see the real picture.
