Have you ever connected with someone online that you really liked and thought WOW, this could be the one? Spending hours on the phone, maybe even skype. Email after email, texting all the time talking about planning that first date? Has this ever happened to you? Well I know I have done it and I am no stranger to getting on a plane to meet someone who I knew nothing about.
Now before we get into the meat of this conversation, what is long distance? I jokingly say anyone who lives 10 miles from me… hey I live in Los Angeles, that could take 1 hour with our traffic. What about you, how far would you travel to meet someone? BTW, anyone who can guess the farthest I have traveled for a first date, gets a 15 minute coaching session on me.
So, what are some of the things to think about when it comes to meeting someone who lives hours (or a plane ride) away? First, who is going to do the traveling or are you meeting half way? Where are you going to stay if it requires an overnight? Now here is the big question, what do you do if there is no chemistry? or worse what if one of you has chemistry and the other doesn’t… ugh!
Well my friends, time to share some naked truth… what is the longest you have ever traveled on a first date or have had someone travel to meet you and how did it go?
* Only one guess per person and the first person who correctly answers the city I traveled to wins the coaching session
** Winner will be notified privately and my answer will be at the end of the week.
