Tips for online dating long distance
Dear Charoa, I trust you’re asking me if this relationship is real, as opposed to the person.Because believe me, there are people overseas who are out to scam you out of your money, and you should be aware of that.As it stands, everything gets slowed down when a guy’s overseas. So if either of you are to turn this into a regular relationship, someone’s going to have to uproot his/her life and take a big leap of faith that chemistry is a good precursor of compatibility. Is he actively dating online even when you are “committed” to each other?Back to your question: Well, let’s look at it logically. Or, more likely than not, the realization that phone chemistry is different than “real-life” chemistry. Can you be authentic with him without scaring him off?Things could get complicated, and you could get sad and lonely at times.
Your family may discourage it, and some of your best friends may advise you not to take it too seriously, in case you get your heart broken.
When you let anticipation build up for a month or three prior to meeting, you set yourself up for three scenarios: You see him, the chemistry is not there. Many people who you might want to be with are firmly entrenched because of their businesses, families, friends, homes, etc.
