Dating someone out of town

opinion

So I actually met someone I kinda like No, he doesn't have kids. But he has a great job and life in his own city.

And I've no intetnion of moving. NO, I'm not jumping the gun thinking I want to shack up with this guy. But the pragmatic part of me is screaming: Why the hell are you dating someone where the distance logistics will be a constant upstream battle?!!

Do you think long-distance relationships can work? Does love rule out in the end and cause someone to make the big sacrifice to move?

Or is it really just a big farce that sets you up for "Dating someone out of town"

Online Dating Is More Popular...

Distance isn't the the determining factor in if it will work or not, it is the two people involved. Some can handle the unique challenges a LD relationship brings, others crumble. So, enjoy it, take things one day at a time and if you find that distance is an issue for you, don't consider it a failure but rather a learning experience as to another important criteria when it comes to your dating life, close proximity.

If he is the one that ends up having an issue, then the lesson is that you need someone more secure with themselves.

You lucked out with three hours. My guy lives 4. It just makes the discovery process longer and more drawn out. I think it also has protected me from jumping into something I am not ready for.

Out of Town. I have...

So it has its advantages as well. If you want it to work it can work.

Have you ever went out...

My guy lives 4 hrs away and we have been together for 2 yrs. We recently became engaged. We don't have a date set yet, because of the long distance. It's a long involved story, however, we are both fine with the way things are so it can work out.

He comes up on the weekends or I go down there. Mostly he comes up here.

1. He’s Funny and Oh...

However, most of my relationships before I was married have been Dating someone out of town distance, so I don't mind it.

The challenges are horrendous for out of town lovers and relationships. The textingphone calls and Skype are great for simple communication. The ability to physically connect and feel the hand of the person you care about as you have any type of conversation truly helps convey the affection, spirit and security and TRUST that is so significant to bound you to being a couple is lost.

Been there done that, and can only speak from my own personal experience here Now add on that hes a man 3. I didn't want her, I wanted YOU!
