I am recently back into the dating scene again and have been finding it hard. I've been in it for about a month, so not a long time. But I get the feeling that my location might be hindering my chances at finding a guy.
I'm from a small town, and none of the local guys want anything to do with me. Not because I'm a bad person or anything, but they grew up with me and aren't really interested in me :( I was a nerd in high school and for some reason guys in my own town aren't really giving me much of a chance :/
So I'm trying to meet guys who are in my area, but it's kinda hard. I have a car and am willing to drive. I get that a lot of people are not into long distance, but is 40 minutes really long distance?
Would a distance of an hour or 45 minutes (by car) be a dealbreaker? I can understand if neither of us had a car. But if one of us did, would it still be a deal breaker?

I don't think 40 minutes is a deal-breaker per se, but it does impose a formidable barrier, especially in the early stages of a relationship. Onthe other hand, an on-line relationship could work for a while so long as you limited yourself to guys who remained accessible. This leaves open the question of what to do if/when the relationship matures. You should consider how willing you are to move, and how independent you could be once relocated.1
