How far would you travel to meet a someone you have been chatting to and made a strong connection with? Not necessarily to decide whether you wanna fall in love and relocate.. just to finally meet the guy.

    well, not that it was fat, but I once took a big risky to meet a gu.
    I've been chatting with a really hot muscle guy from italy who was living in rio de janeiro, I live 50 miles far from rio.
    We were chatting and decided to meet, except for the fact that he said he lived in one of rios slum... I went up there at the time we arranged our meeting, and then he took me to his slum house and we had sex... he then told me he had a boyfriend from the slum that was working at the moment. I decided we shouldn't meet again, but was a really nice guy

    I drove the 2ish hours to Orlando to meet a guy from Ft Lauderdale. We had such a blast that we even blacked out together. It's always best to not remember stuff with other people. (FYI, I do NOT like blacking out and have not drank alcohol since) ..... And it was not a love connection.

    I am willing to travel any distance where it could still be considered a road trip. Atlanta, Ft Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa, Tallahassee. (Hint, hint)

    I travel enough for certain personal clients I have that I don't really mind it. My mentality is that if it is truly meant to happen, it will. Make regular trips to Tallahassee, Atlanta and surrounding areas all the way to NC so it's not a problem.

    That being said.. if someone wanted me to fly or drive over 1,000 miles, I'd have to be pretty fucking sure it was going to develop into something. But there is the problem, you never know for sure until you meet someone. But I'll be completely honest, if Chris Heimsworth messaged me and ask me to fly to LA to go on a date with him, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    It depends really, I mean as long as I could re-establish myself in the place and as long as I liked the place without the guy in it I could do it. Otherwise I probably wouldnt move.

    My sister, she went from San Francisco to Prague for love so...

    Like Kiwi's and Aussie's, us Brits tend to be used to travelling a lot anyway so it's completely normal.

    If I had a strong connection with somone, I would pretty much travel anywhere in the World. I would just plan other stuff around it, meet other friends there and do other fun stuff to justify the cost.

    My previous boyfriend was based in LA - not easy but there's always a way.

    I once travelled a couple hundred miles to meet up with a guy I'd been chatting with and developing a connection. I had friends who lived in a town nearby, so I went to visit them, and took a side trip to get together with him. It seemed to go well at the time, as far I could tell... just dinner, drinks, conversation. But after we parted company, there was nothing. Future attempts at contact were met with indifference at best. I was bummed. So now, I would say the connection would have be very strong indeed before I planned travel of any significant distance. If the spark were there, then yes, of course, but it would just take more time to establish that on my part.

    I try lining up meeting RJers with my current travel plans. Although I did fly from Mexico to New York last September for the last NY RJ meetup, but I already knew most of the core group of the guys so I didn't fly to meet someone.

    Los Angeles is probably the furthest I'll drive to meet someone (it''s about a 3 hour drive from here). Though the last time I drove there to meet someone he had flown all the way from Dubai to meet me, so my traveling was pretty insignificant compared to his.

    LOL. Nice icon_wink.gif

    As for me... I've gone a couple hours to meet people. My first boyfriend was long distance and I was recently dating someone even longer distance (about 2.5 hours). And later on this summer I'm spending some vacation time to go meet someone about a thousand miles off... though it corresponds conveniently with other things, which is part of what a lot of guys in the thread are saying too.

    I Would go just about anywhere if I had the money. Living to me is more exciting if I can see new places and meet new people.

    It wouldn't make a difference just as long as we have been chatting (online/phone) for a while and have established a really strong connection.

    I think the key is also how long you have been talking with someone. Is it someone you have known for 9 months and webcammed a lot (no not in that way you dirty whores) and such? Might be a wee bit better. Someone you just started talking too? Yea, might not be a good idea lol.
