GRAHO, the Internet makes developing long distance relationships easier.
I enjoy developing friendships online. But I think it's important to develop relationships slowly.
Long distance romantic relationships are more difficult than friendships. It may be time consuming and difficult to determine if the other person is being truthful. Also, travel expenses to visit and relocation difficulties can be a problem.
I am open to the possibility of long distance relationships, but I personally think a lot of people are not mature enough to try long distance relationships.
I have tried this before and can say it stinks. When the other person does not want to see you or is someone who can’t even be honest with you, how would that make you feel? And seriously ghosting is soooooooooooo common that is going out of fashion!!!!!!
I rather meet someone near where I live, but I don’t know who to ask out. If I met someone in person, I would have a better grasp of what kind of person they are. It’s hard identify what kind of person the other person is through a profile they wrote when it might not be true at all.
Whenever I look online for a women that I might be interested in, one of the most important things I’m looking for in a women is her relationship with God. Normally you would think a profile who mentions about their faith with God would be someone who you can talk to and be honest with, but immature people still ghost other people regardless of what they say in their profile.
I think long distance relationships is very hard to pull off in this day and age. With God anything is possible. However, people will at times not be nice to their fellow Christian Brother and Sisters just because they can’t be honest with each other.
Of course, if I feel peace with the person I am speaking to (as in I have prayed about it, asked her all the questions I need to get to know her), then yes, my effort will be proportional to how much we get along and grow in our relationship.
