[Poll #1588232]

Just what it says on the tin, how far away would you be willing to have a relationship with someone else? Conversely, it's kinda related to how often do you need to see your other half or halves, I suppose, since the further away something is the less often you can see it.

I don't know, I have had relationships that went as far as into the next country, but that was a bit of an exception.

This assumes the idea that the two of you will always remain at that distance.

The hyena and I did "multi-day drive" for 2 years. Now he's just on the other side of the bed. <3

Oh, that's kinda assumed. If things work out long enough, ya' move closer together. This is more a 'start and maintain a relationship initially' poll, sorry if that wasn't clear. =^.^=

Oh. Well, GEEZ, every single person should have selected the last category. how will you know you aren't missing out on The One if you don't even TRY?

Or maybe I'm the only one surrounded by losers, locally. :p

In my experience, about 4% of furries are dateable by ANY stretch of the imagination, so when I picked a species I pretty much resigned myself to a multi-state move down the line regarding my eventual boyfriend, LOL.

I've done the multi-day drive/flying thing before. I'm not saying this happens in every relationship, but between my own experience and that of a friend's, this seems to make constant cheating and lying okay... XD Just struck fool's gold I guess. I think I would still do it. There is obviously a lot more to worry about in a relationship that way though which can be confusing and scary.

It's funny you mention that, since my one-hour-each-way boyfriend (who I dated for three years and was pre-engaged to), cheated on my black-and-tan ass at the first opportunity.

Whereas my multi-day driving boyfriend, who moved here in Year 3, was so faithful that he called me one night to guiltily confess that he danced with a guy at a gay bar.

I think some guys are just cheating scumbags, regardless of their relative distance. :p

lol. Yeah that is true. I'd later found out that mine had a history of cheating on the women he'd been with at closer distances as well. It's just easier to catch on early or detect general problems when you live close by and see each other often.

Welp, I can answer this one truthfully.

My boyfriend and I waited almost a whole year before seeing each other for the first time IRL at AC2009. He lives in Texas and I'm from New Jersey and go to school in Maryland. It’s tough being long distance and most of our visits to see each other are usually once every 3 months for 4-5 days at a time. Long distance is definitely not for the faint of heart and it has been very challenging at times for me personally. But every time I get to be spend time with him again, the wait was always well worth it.

Kriten and I were 4 states away when we started dating and were that way for a couple years before I finally moved to TX. But I'm a very independent person so that was ok for me. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone.

Too much distance leaves a lot of room to stray. I've been burned before... Maybe I'm just jaded. I guess a final decision would have to be with you, as every situation is different.

*shrugs* I'll be honest... I have no idea. Not even sure what I'd be willing to try at this point-- a few too many recent burnings for me to have an entirely open mind about things.

If there is real love there, no distance is to far because eventually the lovers will find a way to close it.
