So, I guess therein lies my biggest problem. It seems many (95%) of all the men's profiles that peak my interest are on the opposite COAST from me. The single parent of five does present major challenges to pursuing a relationship with someone who would love my family, because of the costs involved and the arrangements needed on my end for childcare even if I could afford to fly out to meet him in person.

Would love to see stats on that. Even one encouraging story of a Brady Bunch type that is also LDR. Anyone?

This is a topic that has so many variables (the divorced couples). Kids, LDR, annulments, etc. I have my annulment and my son is 17, I work full time and find I throw myself into my work as there don't seem to be many in the same mindset or time to date/build, no annulment, etc. I have heard that on match they discuss it's a "numbers game" which initially I thought wasn't true but now I think in some regards it is - you have to put yourself out there to meet someone at the same point in life, same emotional point in life and time, location, etc. Last weekends gospel was the same one my priest has used to say as divorced catholics we need to "fish" to find our vocation - that God isn't going to throw that "perfect fish" on our boats - we need to throw the nets out and do things on our own as well. So, I try but I wonder (OK guys - please give your input) do I not put enough or too much in my profile? I am honest about who I am in words and pictures. Yet, I get a decent number of responses from guys who aren't active (which is pretty important to me - not a zealot but at least weekely mass attendance), guys too far and no means to meet, etc.

UGH! :)

Ah, a Lady who might consider a LDR... who lives close to my hometown. :-)

Okay, okay, my annulment's not QUITE complete... I'll behave...

Wow - they should all write a book on how to naviagte the LDR especially with kids!!! Thpose are impressive! I know even folks without kids who choose not to travel to meet a person and just want to languish on email. I'm so happy for them!! LDRs are tough though as the time and finances have to be compatibile for the potential to even occur.

Agreed. I'd buy it.

I guess it's one of those things I'm not sure about yet. My first husband was the result of an LDR, and boy was I duped. Seriously gun-shy I am now. Especially since it wouldn't be just me I might have to uproot, but five children too. Of course, I could always just say I'm open to LDR as long as HE does all the traveling and moving. Maybe I'll start a new thread on that topic......LOL scratchchin laughing

James, what a beautiful sentiment re: "who planted the seed". I have never heard that before and I think I like it very much!
