If you are in a smaller city or rural are it can be tempting to look at people in nearby cities, but it is hard to get to know someone well enough to know if you will work as a long term relationship when it has always been long distance.Sure, you can spend weekends together, but almost anyone can play nice and get along for three days.There are also specialty or niche dating sites as well that are obviously limited to just that niche, like seniors or Christians or black people.These can be great sites if you are in that niche, but they can be too restrictive with too few people on the website to make it worth your time, especially if you live in a smaller city or rural area.Traveling can be expensive, so communicate with your LDR on how often you can visit each other and suggest a romantic weekend away to a neutral place when the time is right.Once you’ve decided to be exclusive, take down your online dating profiles and start your romantic journey together.
During the early days (the first couple of months, at least) don’t rush into vulnerability, set a pattern of talking for hours every day, or make serious commitments.So what happens when you finally connect with someone who lives out of town, out of state or out of the country?Can you really fall in love and manage a long-distance relationship?Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. Posts14098680I do think a long distance relationship can work no matter what the distance as long as there is honesty, things in common and are able to communicate, laugh and be real. I had a long distance relationship with a guy in Belfast. Okay..was only a nightmare because the romance ended. I think it can work if there's honesty and trust..like any relationship. Are there any irish people here met anyone in the USA from either this site or any other site and it worked out?
