Keep in mind this is an international relationship and not the boy who lives 30 minutes away and I can meet him anytime. So how do I know if it's worth it or if it's all gonna be like a giant bomb exploding around me because what we have online or the phone just can't be sustained "in real life.". How much of a distance is a deal breaker? I think when it comes to online dating its easy to write someone off for little details like living 30 minutes away, but if meeting someone face to face and having a connection you are more likely to take a chance.
I do think a 2-hour commute is a bit tough, especially when you don't have a lot of free time during the week. It means he can't casually drop in with Chinese food or go out for a sort date on weekdays, and that your dates will be limited to Saturday afternoons, evenings and Sunday mornings. Of course, it's your decision, but I do think you're leaning to it not being worth it.
I give you credit for being realistic because a lot of people write in about being in a "long-distance relationship" they've been in for years and never having met the person in the real life. It's not really a relationship. I wouldn't and my husband and I dated long distance for a few years but we'd dated in the past unless you can meet midway and it's practical to see each other at least once-twice a week.
Nov 22, If they lived an hour away, there is no way I would drive to them for an initial meet. They would come here, or we wouldn't meet. For what it's worth, the guy I am dating now (dating isn't even an appropriate term for us anymore - we are together) lives exactly an hour away. He came here to meet me, and it has worked out perfectly. Nov 06, If you like this individual, then you probably should pursue it. Like what the others said, Webcam him/her daily, and text/talk over the phone all the time to get to know each other more. I'm dating someone that is 30 minutes away, and it works out, we see each other times a week average and things are going smoothly. Is it worth it to date someone that lives an hour away? I met this guy and we hit it off pretty good and have great chemistry he lives an hour away though so I am worried distance may be the deal breaker anyone ever have this and it worked out?
I've done it, twice. I am busy during the week and pretty independent. But even with that it does come to a head at some point for some. I know others that can do it, but it's pretty rare. You do get caught up in a perpetual honeymoon state for quite some time. As nice as that is and without the benefit of day to day life, the down side is it takes longer to really get to know the other person.
It's a lot of time and effort invested and with no return in the end. I am a little biased.
Again, I do know some success stories. But you both need commit to do the hard work, because it is hard. You both need to be independent spirits because there will be many times you wish you partner was there when they couldn't be and you need to be very trusting and trustworthy. AND you both need to be willing to move.
Doesn't mean you do, but I would have preferred it if my partner truly thought the relationship was worth it do to so as well. I might have moved both times but felt resentful when my partner s true motivation was always to stay and expect me to compromise.
That would have been fair to tell me that up front and not pretend otherwise. The first relationship ended over an impasse, only for him to come back months later and agree to live in my home.
We decided a trial run to start.
He was there 3 days a week. Given what you've written are your priorities, and you've only had one date, you may want to consider other local options. Originally Posted by blueflames.

I met a guy on a dating app who lives 2 hours ish away. It takes two people to be EQUALLY interested in each other otherwise one person will be doing all of the work which in my situation ended up being me who was doing all the work.
Jun 13, I just wanted some of your opinions on this. Since I've never seen anyone who lives less than 10 minutes away (although none of those were real relationships), but 40 minutes really doesn't seem that bad to me, and it's a really easy drive. But I want to get some other opinions because this girl and I have a lot in common and it seems like I. Oct 01, im My girlfriend lives 30 mins away almost. i was wondering if you think thats way to long of a distance relationship. ppl keep saying "woah, thats insane" when i dont think its that bad at all. the anticipation to see eachother on the weekends builds rather than getting tired of seeing eachother every second at school. what do you think? Apr 20, Is it a good idea to get involved with someone who lives far away, or not? Thanks, Michelle. Dear Michelle, Oh, yes - the Long Distance Relationship (LDR). LDRs are tough. On the one hand, part of dating and getting to know someone means spending time together, which is pretty difficult to do when you live thousands of miles apart.
I had the money and a reliable car so I offered to always come see her. She really liked me and the crazy thing is I fell in love with her because of how much I was doing for her. Because of how much I was doing for her I feel like that was why she lost interest.

Add Opinion. I have experience with this. Unless you both drive or can make the effort, it can be doomed. I lived about 40 mins away.
We saw each other only on weekends. She had a curfew so it sucked to get her, bring to my place, then drive her home again.

It was about 2. She was a bit younger, and she worked, so she couldn't say over. She lived with her parents, so I couldn't stay there either.
That sucked! She didn't have a car, so I always drove. I never asked for gas money, or anything, but vehicle expenses start to add up after a while. The first little while did suck.
Personally I would not do it again. To hard logistically. This was also back when there was no texting or emailing yet. It got better once we were able to have "sleepovers". Today may be a different story.
