in a nutshell, i am about to turn 24 in a few days and i am in my last year of studying engineering, I am a nerd, and enjoy drawing and cartoons/anime when I get a chance but I am not a crazy otaku. I enjoying going out, but bars and clubs are not my thing. when it comes to my career and studies i am very adamant and driven. but with my personal life i like to take it easy and try to take life one day at a time. I also play a few instruments and enjoy playing soccer a lot.
Girl number 1:
She is 23 and has graduated and is working on her masters. She says she has no talents and is not spectacularly gifted in anything, but is very knowledgeable in terms of he degree. she say she doesn’t like dogs or cats and is not allergic all. she is very close to her mother and not so much to her father. she is also an only child. but she is very kind hearted and had a very strong willed personality very "Type A". She enjoys going to clubs and bars but says she doesn’t go out again very often. She enjoys basketball
also she lives only 15-25 min away.
Girl Number 2:
She is 19 and is still working on her undergrad. she is very talented, she can sing and is very good with art in her free time and enjoys Jazz music. She from another country and is studying abroad but says if she can find a reason to stay in the US, she would. she is very close to all her family. She loves animals and is very kind hearted. And she seems to have a spark of adventure in her eyes and seems to go where the wind takes her... and I question her drive. She also likes soccer a lot.
However, she lives 3 hours from me...
TL;DR Girl 1:
she and i do not share many of the same interest but live close to each other.
Girl 2: she and i have a lot in common, but she live almost 3 hours away at another University.

You're still young. There will be girls with the advantages of #1 available for the next 15 years of your life. You may never find another available girl like #2 again.
Back around your age I chose a girl who sounds like your #1 over one who sounds like #2, except the distances were switched. My rationale was that #1 seems to be in a better position to know what she wants and to make a serious commitment, whereas #2 is more likely to want to explore options both romantically and in terms of what life holds for he. #2 seemed like the riskier long-term choice for me, so I went with the seemingly less risky #1 because I was looking too far ahead.
I don't regret the time I spent with #1, because it was great in many ways, but it didn't last, and now I do regret not having a chance to see how it would have worked with someone who seemed to mesh almost perfectly with my tastes and day-to-day life.1
