Can Long Distance Relationships Work?

    So Many of you know that I've recently thrown myself back into the dating game. There have been some suitor's but there is one that I'm sticking with. We'll call him Leland. Leland and I met last year via Facebook.  We met in one of the groups that I participate in Facebook.  He and I are both into the church, both are unique, we both love musicals, and we have so many opposite qualities that seem to push us together.
  Leland is a great guy. I can tell it in the way we talk on the phone, Skype, text, Facebook. However there is one drawback. He's in New York and I'm in South Carolina....Now before you all start judging me and hounding me about Destination DMV.  Many people have stated "Musique, Find you someone in DC."
  Yes, that seems logical, but I'm curious to see how this will work with me and Leland.  We've spent so much time getting to know each other and we have an understanding. Even when it seemed like I may have found someone here in good ole's South Carolina, it seems that I'm thinking more of Leland.  Many have also advised that I shouldn't venture into a long distance relationship because it wouldn't work.  To be honest, I've done it before, but the reason why the relationship did not work was because of me being "too fem." However, the thing I like about Jamal is that he doesn't think of me of being too fem and not even me being HIV Positive scares him. Leland is very well educated on HIV/AIDS and knows what he wants in a mate.  Leland and I, as far as I can see are very compatible.
  Now granted we are working on our first date due to the distance, my question to you is "can long distance relationships really work." There are so many issues that come into play such as trust, monogamy, honesty, who's being faithful, family life, and low and behold what it is like to live with that person.  Now I've known many couples to be in a long distance relationship and they end up getting married and are happy. Others have not be so fortunate.  Also I'm worried with my impending move to DC.  What is going to happen? I guess I'll have to run on and see what the end is going to be.
