Do long distance relationships really work?

Don't you hate when you swipe right on someone from a different state? Or maybe you even met them through social media.. The conversation is great, the chemistry is there, but the distance is overwhelming.. I've always told myself that a long distance relationship would never be for me, but as I get older I am becoming more optimistic about it. Finding a relationship seems nearly impossible where I'm from.. The guys here suck, and they are all over the place! I recently met this guy that lives 3 states over and his vibe is unbelievable.. We Facetime and talk on the phone for hours and I never get bored, like ever!! So now I'm thinking.. Maybe a long distance relationship wouldn't be so bad? We have also made plans to meet so I will keep you all updated lol.

Please comment and share your thoughts, I need all the advice I can get.
