This. All of my real/proper relationships, that is.

Love, trust and patience is the key. I personally don't have any problem with them. However, I personally probably wouldn't get myself into an LDR again. Being so far away from somebody you love is definitely painful and the pain eventually fades but the love also fades with it, in my experience. I've had 3 relationships, I'll give a summary of my first 2 which will explain my feelings personally in my experiences of LDRs.
My 1st relationship ended because the guy couldn't meet me irl - it was all planned, even the date and then 1 month before he couldn't get the money. It felt like a dagger had pierced my heart. He suggested the breakup because he didn't know if he would ever actually be able to meet me and I agreed. There's also a long story about him wanting to get back with me but I'm not going to go into that.
My 2nd relationship was my "most real" relationship. The kind of love I felt for this guy was unreal and it was returned by him. It even got to the point where we talked about a future together and I found out a month before we met he had been thinking of proposing to me and keeping the proposal a secret from our Parents but then quickly came to his senses and realised how absurd the idea was - I was 15 at the time and he was 16. After months of hoping and planning to meet - our Mums met in Florida and we spent 3 days together. Even now, I think that those 3 days we spent together were amazing and I completely cherished them. However, after the 3 days when he had to fly back to Canada it was truly heartbreaking. When I got back, we were planning for him to come over to my house for a week during Christmas. However, for some reason his feelings started fading for me and all he cared about was the "sexual" part of the relationship which I'm not going to go into. To hear that his feelings were fading for me actually broke my heart - I kept crying. Eventually that heartbreak started to make my feelings fade and then we decided to end our dead relationship mutually. 2 weeks later he betrayed me and cut all contact with me.
TL;DR - It ended badly. And to think this is a summary of it, lol.
So, yeah. There's my 2 cents.
