Midweek Hustle: Long Distance Dating

03_22_16

Happy Humpday Purgators!

Dating can be tricky and sometimes having a limited pool of potentials to choose from can make it even tougher which is why some of us resort to moving beyond borders and test the waters of long distance dating.

Both of us have dipped our toes in long distance dating, you can read about The Brunettes here and The Blondes here.

Our views on long distance dating are surprisingly very similar and there are two main takeaways that we both strongly agree on when it comes to this type of dating.

1. Set your expectations at the beginning, whether you’re looking for a fun flirt, the love of your life or a casual sext, make sure you’re both on the same page. If you’re looking for a fun escape, simply someone to talk to and the other person is looking for the love of their life – this probably won’t work out the way you both hoped. Having that understanding between one another will not only allow your relationship to blossom but will also keep those open lines of communication which is very important when it comes to long distance.

2. You must be willing to make sacrifices and work to ensure your expectations stay consistent with what you want. If you’re just looking for an adventure, try to not to get too attached to the individual and enjoy it for what it is (a fun lay in a different country? who doesn’t want that?!) If you want to take things more seriously, you need to understand that there will be sacrifices and serious life changes that need to be made in order to attain what you are after, that may be moving to another country, changing your career and uprooting your whole life. If neither of you are willing to do this, you might want to re-think things because it most likely is not going to work out.

Like all dating this is supposed to be a good time and hopefully through it you meet that special someone. So watch out next time that guy from across the pond slides into your DM’s.
