 How much “get there” time is reasonable for starting a long term relationship (LTR)

 

 

 

To get around in a heavily populated area, miles are a useless term.  Time to get there, rush hour and non-rush hour, is how people here usually answer when you ask them how far away something is.  If they give you the miles, the usual follow up question is how long does it take you to get there. 

 

 

 

Rush hour is itself no longer an hour.  2 to 4 hours usually.  Staggered starting and quitting times is part of the reason.  More people drive on some days also.  Flexible starting and quitting times at some companies adds a certain randomness too.   

 

 

 

So, what is a reasonable amount of travel time to routinely and regularly travel to see a date?  Someone with whom you would like to establish a LTR?

 

 

 

How often do you need to see this person to establish a LTR?

Hah...You are too kind RMac.  That may very well be, and was for a while.... but Baby got tired.  *wink*  :))



Well, you could try only dating retired men.  It is perfectly possible to louse up a decent retirement, but it might be worth it.  : - )

Aww shoot Diana, you know perfectly well what the problem is.  Remember your story about the Dallas quarterback who played a lousy game because of being totally mooney over his girlfriend.  I'd say 2 to 3 years shows remarkable perseverance in the face of extreme distraction.

Fly Me To The Moon....Dadadada...dadada:

Q: What do you get when you cross a pilgrim with a democrat?
A: A god-fearing tax collector who gives thanks for what other people have.

 

Green acres is the place to be.
Farm livin' is the life for me. 
Land spreadin' out so far and wide 
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside. 
New York is where I'd rather stay. 
I get allergic smelling hay. 
I just adore a penthouse view. 
Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue. 
...The chores. 
...The stores. 
...Fresh air. 
...Times Square 
You are my wife. 
Good bye, city life. 
Green Acres we are there.

Can't deny your uncanny ability to stop a blog dead in it's tracks.

 

It's a gift!



I see the glass half full in a relationship, with a mix of good, and bad stuff, Roc. The majority of relationships tend to fill it with the same old mix. Not that way with me. Relationships change, and the individual must change with it, What one fills the glass with is as important as the substance already contained.

Jenkeee,

 

Greart picture.  I saw a full moon just off the horizon during its clossest approach to earth.  I had not been paying attention to the news and was unaware of the "giant moon" they were talking about.  According to the science radio station it was 11% bigger appearing than normal.  I would have guessed more than that. 

 

Good luck here on earth. 

 

 

RMac



Thanks RMac, sorry, I just saw this post of yours 6 weeks later!  Thanks for the wish :) Here is an incredible photo of a Super Moon.

Lololol.....we are still very good friends Pat.  I talk to him pretty often...usually monthly, but he has a new gf now.  It's a long sad story.....and it involves money....MINE! 

 

It's funny how every man I've ever been with has a good paying job/career when I first meet him.  Then after about 2 or 3 yrs something happens and there's no more job.  I somehow have a very bad effect on men's careers.  It's like I jinx them....I don't know what it is.  It's happened 3 times.  It's no one's fault except my own, because I stay and stay not wanting the relationship to be based just on a job/money.  Eventually my love and respect fades.  I'm a very giving person and don't mind working...but I just don't want to pull the wagon alone. 

 

I haven't had a steady bf for about 5 yrs now and have a lot more money.  :)) *wink*

I know it RMac!!  :))  I am seriously beginning to think if I can not fall in love again by the time I am 60, I will begin to try to find a group of ladies to commune live with.  We'd grow our own veggies, have backyard chickens and share the expenses of a really nice little farm.  We'll hire a couple of handymen to do the heavy lifting and be satisfied with that.  *wink*

 

PS:  We might also be able to find room for one thoughtful and kind professor if desired.

I heard that cucumbers are easy to grow, make a dandy crop and are great for finger sandwiches.

I would go anywhere....any time....for a man that I was crazy about!  If I had to drive, climb, fly.....well maybe not too much walking..... but any amount of distance and/or time if I wanted him!!!

 

 

That's how my 14 year relationship started....long distance.  There were exactly 90 days between the first time we met and the day he drove away to another state to work, from March-Dec....then back for 90 days and gone again Mar-Dec.  That went on for the first 3 years....and I was absolutely crazy about him!  No other man would do!

 



So, what happened to him?
