 Going the Distance

Although the two had been best buds for seven years, Drew Barrymore and Justin Long took their relationship to the next level while filming He’s Just Not That Into You in August of ‘07.

The happy couple reveled in their romance for another year, and Justin was so taken with Drew that he invited her to Thanksgiving dinner at his parents’ place.

Sadly, the lovefest fizzled out (ironically right after talk of a possible marriage hit the newsstands) but the actors were determined to remain friends.

Then, while shooting their new movie Going the Distance last summer, something changed and Drew and Justin decided to give it another try. It didn’t take long for history to repeat itself though, as the pair split again in April of this year, got back together briefly, and finally called it a day roughly a month ago, according to sources.

We’re sold!

    I’ve had wayyyy to many LDRs, but the key really is putting the effort in and finding those little ways of keeping in touch.

    Me too Fashionista! It stops being romantic after awhile, then it becomes painful :(

    I would never have an LDR– whats the point? Isn’t the whole reason to have a relationship for sex and having someone to stay in with on Friday nights?

    @CityLady212, I totally agree!

    Mu husband & I started out living in different continents. We spent our vacations & spare cash on trips back & forth every couple of months.. Spain to Canada.. Urgh a long flight. We married a year later on the beach and still love each other very much.. Would I enjoy being separated now. No way…
