If it will cheer you up, let me tell you that my boyfriend is in the Middle East, in Dubai. And I'm here in Miami studying in College. It is really difficult for both of us. Long distance relationship does work, but you need to put in a lot of committment, and you have to trust eachother, and be loyal to one another. Everything will go perfectlly fine, and it's not like you're far away, it's only a 90 mins drive! If you really like this girl so much, it would work... trust me!
