I met a guy through an online dating app about a month ago. It turned out he lived just under 3 hours away in Seattle. We hit it off immediately! Soon after we were talking everyday about everything and nothing was off the table. Due to some personal issues he couldn't come into Canada so we arranged for me to go to him. My rationalization was that, by the time I actually got to see him we would have been talking for just under a month via, text and phone and Facebook. Our phone conversations always lasted more than an hour to even up to 4 hours some nights. So I bought a ticket and he offered to pay 100 towards my travels in order for me to stay an extra night.
I met a man on a dating site, he asked me for a date, which we had to plan pretty far in advance because he lives kind of far away. As it turned out, he had to cancel our coffee date because he couldn't make it over, and then I had to go away for the weekend. Before I left, when we were trying to decide on a new rendez-vous, he said to text him when I'm home and up for a visit. Not ideal, but fine.
