Met a guy a few weeks ago and had an instant connection, but it’s a fair certainty he’s going to be living in another city starting in 2022. Worth it to keep talking or see where it goes or just cut losses now? Hung out over a week and a half before he went to his parents for thanksgiving and the holidays (he works remote), and it was— fun and the physical attraction was def there. We also just seemed to relate on a lot of things.

Depends on where you are in your life right now. I met a great guy on the last day of my business trip (other side of the world). We stayed in touch, felt in love and 5 months later I decided to give it a try and moved to his city / country. This happened 9 years ago and we’re now married - and have lived in several countries since we’ve met. My point is, you never know what happens in the future. Sometimes it’s good to approach a situation with an open mind and positive attitude :) Good luck!

Did the long distance twice, did not work out. Move asap or break it off after he relocates if you won't join. Either way enjoy it whilst its good, no sense in breaking it off prematurely.

Thanks, A1.

I believe long distance can work, even for an extended period of time, until both people can be together permanently. Love is a strong force. 😊

Dating apps have made everything so transactional. Don’t like it.

You could just enjoy it for what it is - something short term.

Thanks everyone- really appreciate the input. The tough thing is he fits many of my criteria— smart/intellectual compatibility, works in the same field of consulting so understands the demands of the work, seems to be ambitious, confident, handsome and so on. Ex D2 athlete, the list really goes on. On the cons though, he doesn’t read. Long distance doesn’t sound too appealing though, but dating is tough as it is with this job, and there aren’t as many people like him where I live. Maybe I need to move to a bigger city or try harder to engage with people more compatible to me where I live 😅

C1, yeah true— same here actually. Isn’t it weird how that works out? My 3 best friends— met all in varying contexts, have different personalities, met during different seasons of life are all voracious readers I’ll ask.
