I met my DBF online through a running forum. I live in Wisconsin and he lives in Philadelphia. We knew each other online for many years as friends, but started talking more after I broke up with my ex. Chatting on Facebook turned into daily texting and phone calls for almost a year. We met in person for the first time back in December because he had to drive to Colorado and it all took off from there.

We fly out to see each other (alternating who flies) every 1-2 months for a long weekend. We talk every day and Skype a few times a week. So far it's working. Is it easy? No. Is it ideal? No. But we care enough to put in the effort.

In your scenario, visits home every 3 months + phone calls + Skyping could be totally doable. It just depends on how committed you both are. You can make it work if you want to make it work.
