Yes, I had a friend that always had long distance relationships. Most of them she's just met once through a friend. Her last 'boyfriend' was one she never met in person. She was introduced online or phone through a friend and they talked everyday for almost 3 years. She was heartbroken when it ended and very bitter for a long time. They had an emotional relationship(so I heard some athlete admitted to this and it was on espn news yesterday) but I do believe there is something wrong with that when you are expecting it and defining to be something more.
