Am I crazy for not considering a 1 hour commute a "long-distance" relationship?
Am I crazy for not basing my decisions on the possibility of a "worst case scenario" actually taking place? I've met a guy. I love him to death, but he's a pessimist. and considers the one hour commute, painful. We're both single parents... both have full custody of our children... have the same amount of "free time" -our schedules coincide... He swears he wants to give it a shot, but I don't know how well I can tolerate his pessimism. I mean it's one thing to be aware of what can happen. It's another to only base your decisions on the slightest possibility of things not working out, right??? Any thoughts out there?
Let me remind you : It's about the guy who wants you!! calls ,you meke you feel sexy and desired fully , if he really like you he wants to see you more and more often because every time he sees you more he likes!!
if he'd making excuses he's just not that in to you!!!
I agree with robtest, the Pessimistic and negative attitude will only get worse with time. When a person thinks it is already "too far" to commute, they are already programming their mind and heart to think the same way.
If you both care deeply for each other, and love each other, then one hour should be a walk in the park. I dated a guy for 3yrs, and we drove an hour to see each other, all the time! If he's negative about the situation, get rid of him! Good relationships are, about compromise!!!!!
A one hour commute is nothing...a drive across the city, or in some cases to the next town.
Jeff is right...if the guy is pessimistic about this, it will only escalate. Lose him, and find someone more positive. If someone is really into you, he will go to the ends of the Earth to see you. Nothing would be too much trouble for him...and vice versa for a female who is really into a man.
Food for thought.
