A strong emotional commitment to another who is far away and often beyond physical access most of the time.

This is something that requires a great deal of maturity and emotion. It is only ever effective in the case of lofty strong loving relationships. In many many cases people can be far too simple minded or immature to benefit from a long distance relationship. If some one is more interested in intimate physical contact with others than they are in emotional bonding than they should not and will not function in a long distance relationship. But if both partners are very serious about each other for reasons beyond physical it can be very worth it because in that situation, one may find it impossible to be satisfied with a replacement relationship.

Bob: Because I love her...
Bub: That's so lame. There's so many hot girls here and you can't do anything about it.
Bob: I care about a lot more than that.
Bub: Whatever... you candy ass.

Theoretical construct to continue having sex with someone who is hot but lives far away and is not worth moving for, but is worth visiting from time to time for a change from all the regular sex you are getting.

A relationship that is over distance. Although you two are very far apart and don't get to see each other often you talk every single day. This relationship can be very hard but it proves you love each other if you can still be together over distance.
