This is why men come to me. A man who’s truly interested in you will put in the effort. A man who is willing to take whatever you give him as long as he doesn’t have to buy the plane ticket, make the drive, plan, or worry about anything, will take it. Nothing will stop a guy who’s interested. Not even you telling him you’re not interested.
My long distance ex-boyfriend came to see me once. I went to him seven times. Notice the EX part of that. When you’re together it’s wonderful because you’re on vacation. It’s not reality. It’s much easier to stay on your best behavior longer when you see each other so infrequently. I’m not saying it can’t work; it can, I’ve seen it happen. But the majority of people getting involved in LDRs are emotionally unavailable. Next to dating a married person who’s never leaving their spouse for you, there’s nothing safer than dating a person who doesn’t live anywhere near you.
