Michelle and Frank have been in a long distance relationship since 2006. For additional resources and advice on long distance relationships visit their website:
Michelle and Frank started their long distance relationship in 2006. After 5+ years they will close the distance in July 2011. Their relationship has not been easy and has been one roller coaster of a journey. Together, they have experienced a lot and with their experience, they offer their advice to you.

Many people think that long distance relationships cannot work. They believe that a long distance relationship isn't a "real" relationship. This is hard for a lot of people to deal with, especially when their friends and family members feel this way, and sometimes discourage their LDR. It's a myth that LDRs don't work; I know they do.
