How far is too far?

How far is reasonable for an IE ,I don't drive but am happy to travel by train for meetings within an hour seems reasonable to me
How far have others travelled?

4 hoirs available. 30 miles there, 30 miles back. That's 90 minutes leaving 2.5 hours.

It depends if you drive or not. Ideally meeting someone within 45 minutes would be ok. I was chatting to a guy on here earlier in the year, we were getting on great and agreed to meet, he was shocked to discover that I do not drive and it was a deal breaker! I have good links to local and national transport and can get to a lot of places. He lived not too far, I suggested I can get the train to a halfway point but he said no. I never really got my head around it, and he is still on here so obviously never met a woman who could drive!!

Depends on the time commitment you can give if you only have a few hours to offer during the daytime you can’t be travelling too far. But if you can offer longer meets, overnights then I would say anything up to 2 hours or further if you meet in the middle. But agree the travelling can get tedious but can also enhance the anticipation.

I think I prefer them being a bit further away an hour to an hour and a half for me. I don’t want the risk of ever bumping into someone. X

Sounds great on paper but really? Week in, week out, month in, month out???

Great if you have unlimited time and finances but how many do???

Nowhere in this country is more than a few hours away we are so well connected. Plus it is rather romantic to get on a plane or a train to go and meet someone.

If i contact someone whos profile sounds nice i sometimes ask if the distance is too far just to get the question out the way early on.

An hour is ok if you have a hotel to spend the day together but closer is better....but not too close 😉

I get what you say. I once flew to Texas to meet a girl I had been chatting to for years online. It was an adventure but it wasn't sustainable.
