Two Lovers, Separated by 300 miles


Is it possible to make a long distance relationship work? My boyfriend and I have been dating on and off for 2 1/2 years, and we see each other about once every month. Maybe. I feel like I know him, we spend hours talking about anything and everything. When we do see each other, it feels :insert every cheesy movie word imaginable:. I do love him. I really do. But is it realistic to love someone I barely see? Once I graduate college, I'll move about to our home-city. 
Is it worth it? Should I play the field once again, to only come back to the same person each time?
