Normal dating progression
I've gone on dates very rarely with women that are more than 30 minutes away.Timeliness and process can very widely depending on many factors, including but not limited to; age, upbringing, experience, culture and past experience.Its the safety aspect of things because it could be Ted Bundy or Peter Sutcliffe at the other end.I think talking for 20 to 30 minutes by phone plus meeting in a public place takes care of the safety issues especially if youre good at screening out and noticing red flags.I would suggest meeting in person as quickly as possible, and eliminate the matches that aren't willing to do that.It doesn't have to be a major date or anything; you can just meet for coffee.I'd venture to guess it's important for most people, Christian or otherwise, to understand the value systems of potential partners.
Both of the guys who I'm most interested in are about 1 hour away and it is very wintery where I live right now.
I've gone on dates very rarely with women that are more than 30 minutes away. I ask for their number in case I have to cancel, or they have to cancel.
