    Unfortunately I have to limit myself to Chicago area proper. The idea of moving is a beautiful idea but financially it will not be happening anytime in the near future. I would like someone close that I could see more often than not.

    If I were to move though it would be to Australia, but not for a guy, just my personal choice of location. I have a thing for the accent and I would be in hog heaven!!!!

    Well in my case, "interested", means getting to know others.. and I'm happy to get to know guys from all over. Friendships are awesome!

    Now if I were single, it would be a different question, not sure about that.

    What do you mean by interested?

    Friendship or getting to know someone: doesn't matter where they live.

    Relationship: I want a guy who lives close. Not into the long-distance thing.

    Was in a couple of long distance relationships and even moved for a guy once. Would most certainly do it again. Will be leaving Charlotte, NC soon so who knows! icon_biggrin.gif

    I couldn't do the long distance thing. There's nothing like being able to be in the same room with a guy you care about.

    In my case, there are only 5 or 6 cities in the world I could work in. Washington, DC. New York. Geneva. London. Tokyo. Maybe New Delhi. I love my partner, but we also need to eat dinner.

    I would not limit myself to just meeting guys in my town. I am game to go just about anywhere especially if there is a relationship involved.

    I'd say three hours travel is the maximum reasonable distance to even be able to get together for weekends with any regularity.

    Beyond that, it's hard to develop more then casual acquaintances, unless you've lived closer at one time.

    haha, i'm sure you are not the only gay in your village. they are there, they are just in the closet and hard to find.

    there's more gays than anyone realizes, but they are living in the closet. there's probably as many gays as str8's, but many are living in the closet or refuse to acknowledge they are gay. I can tell by all the str8's who are secretly into gay porn that sex with men turns them on. lol

    I'm open to anyone anywhere as long as they intend to meet someday in the near future (6 months or so). Otherwise will just stay in my area and hope someone good comes along since there are non here right now.

    My first relationship was long-distance (years) and not sure I'd want to deal with that again. I'm in NYC so it's hard to believe I won't find someone local that I'd like. That said - due to work-schedule randomness I generally prefer they be within a 20 min subway ride(!).

    But if the right guy woo'd me proper from far away and we met in real-life and were compatible in ways well beyond the norm... I'd seriously consider moving if things developed well. My heart is not so easily swayed - so it would take a lot - but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen. I'm also VERY good at doing my research... and can smell BS a parsec away...

    I'll talk to people from all over the world sure, but the idea of getting into a relationship with someone out of my area makes no sense to me. If I'm moving to your area then sure, but I can't just pack up my life for someone. I welcome the opportunity to move to a place where life is going to be better but that has to be on my own terms.

    Doesn't matter to me. As long as there is a plane or train I'm in.

    Heck, I even dated a guy who lived in Australia for 3 years - and I live in NYC
