Quality of Relationships & Long Distance Love  
Isn't it wonderful to be in love, to fall in love, to be consumed by love? 

I remember the childhood fairy tales & bed time stories filled with love, living happily ever after, always in a state of love & bliss...

I've often thought that I would give anything for love, but now I wonder if I had been too generous in the past.  After all, not all love lasts forever.

So, is the quality of love or a relationship directly related to the length of time the relationship lasts; or is it the quality of the love & connection felt, even if it only lasts for fleeting moments, never to be recreated again?

Would you consider a long distance relationship if you thought you found someone you would like to experience love & passion with?  Would you move across town, across a state or even across a country?  Or would you prefer they relocate to be with you?

1. So, is the quality of love or a relationship directly related to the length of time the relationship lasts; or is it the quality of the love & connection felt, even if it only lasts for fleeting moments, never to be recreated again?
Quality is based upon length of time; how a couple survives the good, the bad, the beautiful & the ugly
Time can only contribute to the quality of a relationship if it is filled with nurturing & positive experiences.
The quality is based upon mutual love, chemistry & satisfaction; the length of time is unimportant.
2. Would you consider a long distance relationship if you thought you found someone you would like to experience love & passion with?
Yes, I would consider a long disance relationship, anytime, anywhere; as long as I was truly in love!
I might consider a long distance relationship, they can be very challenging, but rewarding also.
No way! I can't go that long without being in the arms of my lover!
3. If you were involved in a long distance relationship that was evolving into co-habitation, marriage, etc., would you move across town, across a state or even across a country to be with your beloved? Or would you prefer they relocate to be with you?
Pack my bags, here I come, Honey!
Oh, I could never leave my town, state, country; I would encourage them to come to me.
I would consider moving to be with my love, but I would prefer they came to me.
I'd move across town, it's a hop, skip & a jump away!
I'd move across the state, what's a few hundred miles here or there?
I'd move across the country, I'm game for excitement & change!
Did I say I was involved in a relationship, what was I thinking? I must have presed the wrong button! am very single!
