(quote) Kathy-730470 said: I think if it is meant to be it will be. Sooo if you were communicating with someone every day then you would process to the phone and then to meeting. If you lived in the same area you might meet sooner. If you lived farther away it might take more planning to meet. If you met and you both felt you would like to meet again then meet again. I think if you found the one it will take its own course and when the time is right everything will work out as it should. :)
Kathy is correct in her summary...above.
I'd also add in an *LDR the first meeting would be a true joint planning/sharing/coordinating project...Both suggest, jump in, grab the calendars, and get to work on the nuts and bolts...You cannot leave that up to one party to plan..and or bear all costs...monetary....time....gasoline...food...and angst!
The second F2F might not even be possible for a month or several months away...But the prompting
for that second F@F over 300 miles should then be considered "pursuit" territory...at least for an expensive LDR...If the man is NOT leading in planning a second LDR ...even if it's for 6 months out...not bringing up the topic not outlining possibilities for it...imho...the woman should "resist" taking that lead....unless he of course REQUESTS her to please arrange it....for his own reasons...An LDR is more than just the details and plans of travelling...otherwise it becomes a tourist road trip. So...just note if the effort to overcome the distance is waning...
An LDR is really like a dance...She and He both were drawn to each other across the miles...they join and do a dance...they return to their respective sides of the dance hall...he knows where she is...and they are still looking at each other...so he can then be the "lead" and if she wants to meet him halfway after he nods to her...they both have another dance and chance!!
JUST in case there are any LDR possible persons reading in here?
Hope this Helps
BTW I chose 300+ miles as LDR...because that would be one major city's distance away for my area.
