I guess it depends on how high on the priority list a good relationship falls and the reality that it always is not in your backyard. Also at retirement age, there is more time/flexibility to consider this option. was told a moderator would have to review to erase and restart. That's why almost everybody gets married at least once, even though they weren't searching the entire country or the entire world for their perfect match and were only interested in their local market-even if it's only in a one horse hick town.
But not more than a very long drive, unless you want someone with a plane or money. Then my bucket list, determined in childhood oddly, will be done: a "good" relationship and my book! The older people get, the further they get away from the fairy tale fantasy, and less likely to search extensively for total perfection, and do the ultimate sin of "settling" (gasp, cough, cough). I would think when you get older, and especially if you retire, relocation wouldn't be a big deal. But the 30-50 year old group likely have a career that prevents them from traveling.
I don't find distance to be a highly significant preference, though someone close is nicer. HOW can you possibly know anything that person says is true?? There is a certain familiarity that you have that YOU WILL SLEEP WITH THEM ON THE FIRST DATE.
However someone in a distant foreign culture is much more exciting to meet and date than meeting a typical person at the local coffee shop. People do not tell you about all the guys they showed up after 3 months of talking on the phone and exchanging emails,,,,,, He slept with her and she never heard from him again. OR it turns out HE was nothing like he said he was in those emails and phone conversations.
Unfortunately that often, for me, gets to be living his lifestyle and not mine. Here's a rundown of the the length of time to travel one way for some of the people I dated more than twice, took a chance with, etc.:1) 2) 3) 4) 5) The woman I'm dating now: 12 minutes! One could own a home, which makes relocating a bigger deal. The two women I married.1) 30 Seconds2) 24 hours, 18 hours of that was flying.1) (I could see into her living room apt from my apt)2) No direct flight from Chicago to Thailand. Outside of marriage, I had a 10 year relationship with a GF that was first 40 minutes away, then 1 hour, and after that it was a 3 hour flight.
But we would spend the entire weekend together, and if I flew it would be the entire week or more. It's not far enough away to automatically stay overnight, but far enough away to be a hassle.
BECAUSE those they are ashamed of being taken advantage of. HOW can you possibly know anything that person says is true?? There is a certain familiarity that you have that YOU WILL SLEEP WITH THEM ON THE FIRST DATE.
OR the number of women who send a bunch of provocative, sexy pictures to men they never meet. People do not tell you about all the guys they showed up after 3 months of talking on the phone and exchanging emails,,,,,, He slept with her and she never heard from him again. OR it turns out HE was nothing like he said he was in those emails and phone conversations.
Generally, you've met people during your journey that are either available, or can hook you up with someone. I personally do not pursue long distance relationships although at times it does seem like that is where the most interesting prospects would reside. And hopefully she is in the same town or maybe one town over.
