Long Distance Online Dating

Jul 4, 2008
Remember the time when your friend was dating someone who was stationed so far that it would take ages to get there? Sometimes your friend would be happy that the long distance online dating was helping them to find time to spend with other friends and do their own thing.

Most of the times you would find them down and sulky because there was little or no interaction between them. Dating through the telephone was the only means of contact between them and their dates which put a strain on their relationship.

So is long distance online dating worthy of time? This is a very debatable question. For few it is the best option while for some it is disastrous. It is no hidden fact that people involved in long distance online dating have to put in more effort to work out their relationships.

The magic wears out soon
Agreed you may have come across someone who is really cute and measures up to your standards in all ways and you are ready to sacrifice a little time to travel long distance just to meet your prospective partner. This seems fine in the beginning and it also excites you but how long can you continue this traveling to and fro?

There is a need for physical intimacy
All humans need some physical intimacy for this is a means of reassurance, appreciation and love which manifests itself into the different emotions. When you are dating someone even if it is online, someday you would feel like meeting face to face and see the person in reality.

There are some who like to display their affection by holding hands or cuddling up to each other. Do you think all this is possible with long distance online dating process?

Settling disputes
Have you ever wondered why arguments and disputes which erupt over the phone gets solved easily when the opposing parties are in front of each other? That is because the level of communicating effectively is higher when you are facing your opponent.

Similarly, while dating you can have small misunderstandings and little fights which gets resolved sooner with both the partners coming face to face as there is much scope to explain and be explained.

Long distance online dating is not for everyone
There are some who either due to circumstances or due to their nature is perfectly comfortable with the idea of long distance online dating. These people neither ask too many questions nor like being questioned by their online dates. They believe in complete freedom and respect space in their relationship. However most of you do not fall into this category.

How many of you have pondered over the fact that your online date may be attracted to someone else whom they can meet when you are not present? You even try to probe your partners in a subtle manner as to their whereabouts and their friend circles. Long distance online dating does give a sense of insecurity to individuals.
