I highly doubt it is going to work out, I'm starting to think it is stupid. I mean, we've met on a dating site and hit it off, but never met each other in real life. Now, even though he took down his profile, there is still a chance for his parents or friends to introduce him to other girls!
I don't think I should put all my eggs into one basket. But is it harder for guys in the military to meet other girls, making LDR okay?
Military ldrs are different. He doesn't have any control of his life. No it isn't harder to meet someone when you're in. If you get in a relationship with a service member you're doing so knowing there will be periods of separation. These relationships aren't for everybody but millions have made it work and been very happy
If you've been together for a while in person, and then the relationship goes long-distance for a while (certainly the military would qualify for this), I'm sure it can work out. I don't believe much in long distance relationships where you haven't even met face to face before though. I feel like too much of a relationship depends on the in-person chemistry and connection, you need a solid foundation to build the relationship on first, then and only then is there a real chance for the relationship to really survive long distance.
Now, I'm sure there are examples where the opposite is true, but I would bet 9 times out of 10 relationships that start off long distance for an extended period of time, don't last or work out well, even if the people eventually do get together in person.
Be friends, be pen-pals, have tentative plans to get together and give it a shot further down the road if you do get together, but I would keep it casual and let each other continue to date locally until that time with no firm commitments. If it's meant to be, it will work out, otherwise one or both of you will probably meet someone locally that will work out better with.
I was in a long distance relationship for a while and met my husband online. Despite the fact we are polar opposites we work out and have known each other for 5 years. They do work just have to work a little harder in order to keep it alive. Take the time to meet in person though as you may not click on person. Also really get to know the person before you start dating.
