lifesatrip Posted May 8, 2017 Share Posted May 8, 2017 I am living somewhere where I got a job. I am not liking the area at all, and plan to move in 1 1/2 - 2 years. But I want to date and don't want to miss out on that aspect of life while I am here. And it is always possible that something could happen and I could find myself here for longer. I'm in my late 20s, don't know many people here, and would like to try online dating. I am in a small town, but there is a (small) city with a large university about an hour and 15 mins away. I am wondering how to approach the online dating considering that I am not planning to be in this area permanently. I am not looking for a fling or meaningless relationship, but a substantive connection. This doesn't have to be the relationship of my life, but I don't want something too casual. (And if I did meet someone really serious I would be thrilled - assuming they are up for leaving the area someday). I was thinking of joining OkCupid and trying to meet people in the city on the weekends (there is a really small pool of people in this town, and it would be nice to escape for day and eventually night trips on the weekend.) But I don't know if this is super practical. I don't imagine many people my age are looking for the same sort of thing, especially if it involves this type of commute. I'd appreciate advice on how to proceed. Link to comment
