    If it was the real thing, I'd travel to the end of the Earth. Wow I sound desperate.

    I would want to be close enough so we could get together every weekend and maybe even a night or two during the week...so maybe about 20 miles.

    If guys can make long distance relationships work, good for them! I would just prefer to be closer.

    We currently drive 5 hrs to see each other, at least once a month. Skype every other day and text whenever something interesting happens. We lived with each other for a year before he moved, so it wasn't always like this.

    As far as it'd take, if the connection is there...

    5000 miles is the furthest I've traveled so far, and would probably do it again, even though I want to think otherwise... I'm a sap :/

    .2 miles. Getting cross town via NYC subway is hell. icon_cool.gif

    No, seriously though. People in NYC are so lazy that if we find out you live cross-town, we'll literally skip your party or try to get you to travel. It's a race-to-host situation every time.

    This holds for every big gay friendly city. One of the reasons, I don't meet someone just for a hook-up living on the other side of town.

    For what it's worth, it wasn't a "relationship," but I did drive 80 miles or so when I was 16 for a hookup.

    Oh to be young and dumb again.

    @Pazzy,

    It's a great subway/bus system for going uptown and downtown. But getting "cross town," east/west, is a real pain. There's the "shuttle" from Grand Central to Time Square. And I think the NQ line zigzags cross-town from lower Manhattan and then out east to Astoria. Good luck if you're trying to get to the UWS or UES.

    I'm not exaggerating when I say that it can take 40 minutes to get cross town, especially at night when service slows, when you have to (1) walk to the subway a few blocks, (2) wait on the subway, (3) transfer once and wait on another train, (4) and walk to your destination from that station.

    It's not all sunshine and marigolds. But yea, we are a bit lazy.
