Chrissy1187 Posted October 10, 2017 Share Posted October 10, 2017 So I've never tried any dating apps before, I was in an 8 yr relationship and then was single for a little bit and was in a 1.5 yr relationship I got out of about 5 months ago. Just for fun I tried out the dating app bumble and matched with a guy, we ended up chatting for a few days and met up for a date. We had a blast, stayed out for most of the night and kissed at the end (sparks were flying). The only catch is he does not know how long he is going to be here (in my town) for. He said it could be anywhere from the end of October (earliest leaving) to a few months depending on how long his job takes, his company sent him here on business. Most likely it will be the end of October. I live in Florida and he usually lives in Missouri. Our first date was a little over 2 weeks ago and we have talked through text/phone at least every day, both of us equally starting the conversations. We have also hung out more days then not hanging out over these past 2 weeks. It feels like we have known eachother for a long time (corny sounding I know). We have been physical with each other and things are just so natural. His company has set him up with a condo here and he cooks dinner for me, always asks me how my day is going, always wants me to come over or spend time with me, he even has fixed this little problem with my car. Any day he gets off of work (which has only been 1 day a week) he spends with me. He has gone out with me and my friends, and he had some friends driving though my town who he wanted me to go out and meet, which I did. He was affectionate with me in front of them as well. I have been trying not to get too attached since I don't know where this is going to go, but that is becoming more difficult as I spend more time with him. He talks about doing things a couple weeks from now with me (going to see a movie coming out, going to see my hometown an hour away) and I have a bike at my moms house I was going to keep at his house since he is living down at the beach. I told him my brother could get it for me to bring it there, but he said he wouldnt mind going to my mothers and getting it and meeting my mom which I wouldn't mind happening. Since meeting, both him and I have deleted the bumble app and are not talking to anyone else. Im 30 and he is 37, neither of us have been married, no kids. It feels as though we are already in a relationship just be how we act and are very affectionate, joke around a lot, have had conversations about our families. It is so great and I really like him and I'm assuming he feels the same. My question is.. at the end of his time here should I approach the subject of a LDR? I don't want to right now since it has only been two-three weeks and we are enjoying each other, but I feel if it keeps going this way I would be open to a LDR. I don't have anything serious tying me to where I am at right now so I would be open to moving if we got very serious. He owns a home and has a great job where he lives so I'm sure he would want to stay. Should I bring up an LDR before he leaves or wait for him to leave and see if he wants us to meet up again? Tickets are pretty cheap for me to fly over the weekends a couple times a month and vice versa so I would be willing to do that. ahhh I dont know if we are just having a fun month or if there is more there.. feels like there is.. but I don't know how or if i should approach the subject and when.. please help!
