Long distance dating...

Amber - posted on 10/30/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




I met a guy on Match.com It seems to be the only place I can meet someone. I do not get approached in person for whatever reason LOL

So, this guy. Mr. Perfect. We've gone out once. We talk daily and we have a very strong attraction to each other.

Here's the problem. He lives 250 miles away. We both work full time. He has a busy schedule outside of work and I have my son full time. His father is not in the picture. I do not have family near by and I cannot afford overnight babysitting.

How do we make this work?

Ahh... I am in the same situation. I met mine online too and he lives 2 1/2 hours away. We make it work. He drives to my house every weekend. My kids love him so he stays the weekends. Eventually we plan on living together and marrying, but the time isnt right yet. It will be someday.

If he is the "one" you will figure it out. Good luck to you.

In a past relationship my son HATED the person I was dating ( other family memeber didnt like him either but didnt say anything). It caused a lot of problems. Kids are smarter than we think. I needed to see if my family liked him as much as I did before we went any further. I got lucky this time, I found a gem.
