Please note that this life lesson is titled Long Distance Relationships HARDLY Ever Work because sometimes they do.

However, my personal experience and HIMYM both prove that it is very rare that they work out especially if over a long period of time.2

In the first season, Ted is dating Victoria who gets offered a fellowship at a culinary institute in Germany.

At the airport, Ted and Victoria decide to give long distance a try, both saying that it will work.

However, Future Ted tells his kids that it didn't, and that long-distance relationships hardly ever work.

In the next episode we learn that Ted hates having to be on the phone all the time and is running out of things to talk about with Victoria.
