I've been through it, and I'm glad to see she is a type to want to make it work. It does get tough the more you are out, depending on the person. You could move out and get a temporary place to see if things would work. If it does, you can find a common place or city to settle. I eventually married my client site girlfriend.

Only if you think there is a good chance it could work out long term. Too much stress for someone you aren't serious about

In all honesty though, if you like her and the only thing holding you back is distance, then give it a shot. You may regret not trying it out with a perfect match when you are one of the thirsty guys on fb alone for years. Rare to find a girl who will accept the distance and travel lifestyle. Leave when it actual starts to not work. That said, if there are things you don't like about her and she isn't a perfect match, no reason to continue dating anyways, distance or not.
