I've never eaten shit before either but I have a pretty good idea that it's not for me either...

 

I was being hyperbolic when I used this metaphor in comparison to online dating, but when it comes to Death Stranding? I can't THINK of a more appropriate response.

Communication is like 90% non-verbal so I personally don't equate texting and chatting through a screen with talking to someone in person. Again, no knock against folks for using dating sites but it's not the same thing.

That's one of the problems for me because i suck at picking up on non-verbal body language. I've talked to random girls at restaurants and wasn't sure if they're just being friendly.

Well if they're continuing to talk to you and engaged in the conversation, it's probably a good sign. I mean no one can read minds, but you can definitely determine if there's chemistry or not there fairly early. Do you have a lot of female friends? They're invaluable sources of info :p But to your original question, from what I've seen with my friends, online dating is a perfectly viable way to meet people ESPECIALLY if you don't have a lot of time, are in an area where meeting people is tough, or are shy. The reputable ones are NOT scams.

I have a few female friends but i couldn't ask them stuff like that. It's mostly small talk when we talk and that only happens when we get together for special events. Most of my friends have families and busy with work so i wouldn't want to bother them.

No, I met my wife at church when she was in high school and I was in junior high, and we started dating 5 years after we first met, got married a little less than a year after we started dating, and will hit our 15 year wedding anniversary next Wednesday.

 

I know lots of people who have had good luck with short term relationships via online dating, but only a couple who have had success long term. But I suppose that holds true for “traditional” ways of meeting folks.

I don't give a fuck if you believe me or not. It was summer of last year. I know my life. Sorry you're wrong. Her name was Amanda. Now go do a search on her and try to put the puzzle together you sick fuck. Also, why would I lie about this? I literally never lie about anything like this. You've got issues.

 

I brought up Stephen because I was talking about going to this cave site for a date.

You're just sick in the head. I just explained myself. Not sure how that makes it "easy". You're fucking childish.

This is basically me, plus a few years and we were both in high school when we met. :sun:

I used dating sites like pof, okc, and tinder back in the day. Honestly used to have to worst luck with okc by far.

 

I ended up meeting my wife in Manhattan at 5am. Life is weird.

Not really related but I just feel like spilling my woes. The girl I've been dating, and really fucking like, just moved back to her hometown of Montreal after finishing up her studies at an American lab nearby. I just went to visit her for the first time and she's coming down the day after Xmas to stay with me for like five days but fuck me, Montreal is a six hour drive away and I don't know if I can do this long-distance shit...I've never done it before and it seems so absurd but at the same time I can't imagine just letting this go. 

 

I guess keep going and see how far it all develops and then see if any solutions can be thought of? I have no idea how people approach the whole long distance thing.

Also I would say, 6 hours is tough but not bad.

It blows because it's JUST shitty enough where "just a weekend" isn't an option. There'd always have to be at least a day or two taken off for that to work out. But I'll see.

@Bloodporne the only time I really tried long distance was with a girl I had already been with for five years. We did long distance for two years before breaking it off, and even then it was mostly because we just didn't know when it was going to end. But we only saw each other two or three times per year because we were separated by an ocean.

 

I think if you can make progress towards the long distance ending, it really won't be that bad. You've got this, man, chin up!

This is like your very own Death Stranding!

Thanks for the input! My situation is definitely much...easier...I guess but yea, we decided to really sit down and try to logically come up with a plan when she comes down for Xmas. As in, full pros/cons lists and all on how living together could be achieved ultimately if we were so inclined and so on.

 

I'll post an update some time haha

I suggest putting up a zip line or using the reverse trike bike

Long distance is fucking soul crushing lol. 6 hours is kinda nice though but still not great. My boyfriend was thousands of miles away until I moved in last week 😛

If your finances allow it, maybe you could meet in a town halfway and get an Airbnb or hotel for the weekend. Only 3 hours one way then.
