So for me, I knew when I joined the site that my combination of ahem....wisdom, church affiliation, and family constructs...(how do you like that for "spin", huh?) would most definitely be LDR....My eyes were wide open to LDR from the beginning....I cannot relocate permanently...but as any good Floridian will tell you...we have many who make "snowbird" retirement plans...So, if marriage is in my God willed future, a 50/50/ 60/40/ 70/30...flexible living arrangement is possible...Camping can be pleasant????.... with an air mattress...pretty please? ...over 60 makes the bones ache in just a sleeping bag...yikes! and in order to keep up with adult children and to visit grandbabies...it's all good...what is needed is a husband and wife with the determination to continually go out of their way throughout married life...just to make it work !
So mostly I look for a gentleman's heart-edness... with a "can do" attitude....an "open" attitude to the rest of what life brings...someone who is willing to do the work WITH me to share a future together over the distance....God knows who that ONE is... Good News!
So LDR is the way to go from where I am ! just saying...I knew that from the start...no shock or disappointment here!
Thanks,Joan, for the affirmation of my necessity for LDR here!
