Have An Opinion?
I mean, I’d have to be in the specific situation to determine what I’d want to do and if I could work out something with my partner who moves around a lot. I think this would cause a lot of issues, perhaps cause some instability in the relationship if the person who moves around a lot continues to do this for a long time. Now, I can understand if this is some temporary thing, but if it’s consistent and drags out for long durations then perhaps it’s selfish to be in a relationship with someone that you can’t devote a lot of time to seeing because you’re moving around a lot, and it’s disrespectful to yourself if you’re having to consistently put up with not being able to see your partner often because of the fact that he or she moves around a lot. If you’re the person who has a partner who moves around a lot, you have to be reasonable and honest with yourself about the situation and whether or not this person is right for you. Again, this is a complex topic that hinges on the specific circumstances of the situation.
Again, this is the LDR question. If you have the groundwork of a relationship already on tap, but you've decided to move around the state for a short time for educational purposes, this could work. But as many has said, there has to be an "expiration date" to the moving so you can be together as a couple again. If you've not been together very long and you're moving away for a year, that's a long time to be gone completely. With the constant moving, it doesn't sound like driving or flying in to see your date will be anything but exhausting. Maybe a see you when I see you arrangement, along with skypes and phone calls to keep each other updated, and a loose arrangement. Nothing much can happen to move your relationship forward until you're dating in the flesh again.
People can still work on the relationship through verbal (and text) communication. As long as you see each other periodically I think that's okay. Sometimes you have to just do your best with the situation you're in. And some people may want time to be more comfortable with the other person before they meet up.
@Jamie05rhs From the questioner info, I get the impression neither have ever dated and never met. Sounds like a disadvantageous position to start a dating relationship in. If they're both very young, they might not have the ability to get together regularly either. This is often how catfishing happens. And text/verbal only relationships can drag on for years. When people meet in real life, it usually dissipates fantasies quickly. You find out if you have chemistry, personality and habits in each other that you can tolerate. For first relationships, I'd suggest being in each others' company to learn how to be comfortable with each other. No amount of texting does that.
Well, then people should meet up as soon as possible to see how their in-person chemistry works. If they don't connect, then they can both just move on.
Not sure how one maintains a job or school always moving around so that seems like a difficult request even if people would be interested it would be hard to maintain general life commitments Now my n my guy, he telecommutes for work. I can telecommute most of the time. We have actually discussed buying a travel trailer and travel around the area and work from wherever we land for 3-4 months out of the year. But we have t made up our minds yet.
"Not sure how one maintains a job..."I used to move a lot and never had a problem with jobs. I was always working within two weeks of getting some place new, usually in less than a week. At one time I moved 12 times in two years. Never had a problem with work. A couple of those times I had something arranged ahead of time. The other times I didn't look until I got there.
@NearlyNapping not really you so much as a partner one may want
I was commenting on the part about maintaining a job.But yea, it would be hard on a partner unless they went with you. I had a partner who went with me sometimes, and not others. It was a pretty loose relationship and there were a couple of times we went a year without seeing each other. We managed, but yea, it's certainly not for everyone.
No, at this point in my life, I'm not interested in long-distance relationships. I want someone who lives in the same area as I do so I can actually spend time with him and work on building a solid relationship that will hopefully lead to more.
Yeah sounds cool as long as he’s not all over the place emotionally, totally would.What castes you to move all over?
Yes but unless we were married, I probably wouldn't move around with them; it would have to be a long-distance relationship, which is actually fine with me because I need a lot of alone-time anyway.
I would do it as a single woman but with kids no that’s pretty traumatic to do to kids growing :).
no for I want to settle down in one place and raise my children there too
It's rather risky.. You have the potential to meet different people.
Sounds like dating can wait till your done with your study.
That depends on the reason why they are doing it and how far!
People who vote yes think that way because then there is no emotional attachment. Me on the other hand, I voted no, I can't deal with someone constantly moving.
Well I date people and I never stop moving around. I live on the road, literally
Every listened to the song, "Please Come to Boston" by David Loggins?
As long that I can still get to work in reasonable time, then it is great to experience.
You mean moving around in the same city?
More like my work is the center of circle and everything within one and a half hour travel is great. If I move job, the center moves too.
That makes sense. I know exactly what you mean. I think that way as well.
ah a Sagittarius huh, I've dated one before, but they were pretty grumpy and pessimistic , not at all like the description of Sagittarius
No it sounds unstable.I like a routine and knowing what to expect.
Moves around as in St Vitus' dance?
Yes, as long as they settle down eventually.
I don’t think I would
Military couples do this all the time
No, I wouldn’t. I want to stay in one place.
Yes I would. I like traveling myself so yeah.
