* ''Film/TheSpaceBetweenUs'' is a boy-meets-girl story where the boy in question was born in a colony on ''Mars''; it doesn't get much more long-distance than that.

* The film ''Film/TheLakeHouse'' has an interesting variant: the distance isn't in space so much as in time.

* The Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote series: For Aya and Sunahara, that's already an improvement, as the last time Sunahara appears in ''The Egg Hamburg Steak Knows'' the entire set up looks more like a case of StarCrossedLovers. ''The Valentine Knows'' ends with the relation between Aya and Sunahara improved to this. It is more than clear that Aya and Sunahara love each other, and they have mutually confessed in this arc. However, Sunahara's [[TheInfiltration brush]] with the JapaneseDelinquents [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood seriously bruised his reputation]] in town, so he declared ButNowIMustGo. Although he promised to meet each other. Sunahara pretty much CommutesOnABus, but he does come back once every few novels.

* Mentioned in Deana Carter's "Strawberry Wine," when the boyfriend had to go back to college at the end of [[SummerRomance summer]]. It didn't work out, but [[TheOneThatGotAway she still remembers him fondly]], going every year to the spot where she lost her virginity to him.

* HK-47 in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic2'' states: "Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope... Love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticule, and together, achieving a singular purpose against statistically long odds."
* It's never explicitly stated, but it's implied that Walter and Lyn's relationship is this in VideoGame/FrontMission 5. Likewise for Darril and Elsa, the protagonists of FM4, who got married in between 4 and 5.

* [[LesYay Subaru and Teana]] fell into this after ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' when their personal goals stationed them in different posts. But as Teana told [[GenkiGirl Subaru]] [[{{Tsundere}} in an annoyed tone]] when they reunited in ''Audioplay/StrikerSSoundStageX'', the latter kept on bombarding her with so much e-mail that she didn't even notice the distance.

* During the ''Sailor Stars'' arc of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', Mamoru went to America to study, leaving Usagi behind for a large part of the series. (And then it turns out that [[spoiler: Mamoru actually was killed by having his Star Seed ''stolen at the airport'', and Usagi witnessed it, but she was so traumatized that she repressed this memory. In the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] it's slightly changed; Mamoru gets killed off a little after his plane took off, and since Usagi didn't see it she truly believed Mamoru wasn't able to contact her, unti Galaxia shows her Mamoru's Heart Star Seed and tells her how she killed him.]].)

* Used in ''Manga/KimiNoIruMachi'' and ended badly, when the female lead Yuzuki decided to cut off all contact with the male lead Haruto and date her dying childhood friend as a pity date. Since this is a Seo Kouji series, [[JerkAss it never crossed her mind to explain this in any way shape or form to the male lead]].
** They try it again later when Haruto gets a job that requires him to move. He is initially encouraged when he finds out his senior at work has maintained a successful long distance relationship with her boyfriend for five years. Until she shows up at his apartment distraught and begging to sleep with him since she just broke up with her boyfriend. The distance was more emotional in her case. As much as she and her boyfriend loved each other, their dreams for the future were just incompatible. Her boyfriend wanted her to quit her job and move in with him so they could raise a family, and she wanted to stay at her job. They avoided confronting the issue for years, but it finally came to a head... to which they once again break up.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''; in the Season 2 episode "Soos and the Real Girl", Soos meets a woman named Melody who shares many of the same quirks he does, and the two hit it off. However, she's only visiting for a few days before going back to Portland, so they agree to continue the relationship via Skype. Soos is okay with this, saying he's better at talking to women through video screens anyway, and they're still together as of "Love God".
