jlars12 saidBasically I hate living in Mississauga because all the guys are 30km away in Toronto haha. Unfortunately my job is here. I've been on-and-off seeing a few guys, but since I have a car, and the Toronto guys are always transit-dependent, it's always me driving over to see them. But boy it gets time consuming. End rant haha.
If that's the farthest you have to contend with - and not saying it's not a pain in the butt - you're fortunate. When I lived in San Francisco, I'd meet guys from LA (350 miles) and that was one of the shorter distances. I'd also meet a guy who lived 2 miles away, but thinking that proximity=a better chance of finding love? That's the part that's a myth. I've dated guys who lived in Australia, the UK, Canada, Boston, New Haven, to name a few. That was after my lover died (and before I met him).
The reason things don't work out, from my observations, have not as much to do with distance (but it DOES count) as it had to do with maturity of the two people involved (or lack of it), and that, my friend, as you will find, is what makes or breaks any relationship. Also it helps to be able to determine if someone IS mature or not, and that doesn't mean having a job and paying one's bills, or Donald Trump would be considered mature. If a person is not himself mature, he certainly won't recognize it in others, and then he blames everyone else for the failure of the dating process to mature into a real relationship (not that you're doing this. Just clarifying).
