    CMC relationships can work, but I doubt they work well.

    Laurence, read in the context of CMC relationships, your use of a blinking heart image is emotionally effective.

    Nicely done.

    Thanks Chen-ou. Yeah, distance relationships are tricky. I’ve seen instances of them working, but I don’t think they can be sustained indefinitely.
