Keep scrolling to avoid a rant. Tl;dr: Effort>Distance
These fucking posts annoy me so much. All the stuff that’s like “they end up living forever away” “he/she is on the otherside of the world” “they live in Narnia”. Yeah, they might literally live on the otherside of the world. So fucking what? If the person is worth it, you’ll get used to the timezones. You’ll cope with the distance. It’s mid 2012. We have modern transport. Yeah, I know that plane tickets cost a whole lot but when you find someone you’re interested in or who in your opinion is “perf” then it shouldn’t fucking matter. Mrs Storm lives 19,000km away from me. And her timezone is 9 hours ahead of me. And we’ve made it work. I flew from Glasgow to Dubai, Dubai to Singapore, Singapore to Brisbane. 7 and a half hour journeys per flight. I stayed with her for a month, and now I’m working towards going back late Dec, early Jan for a full year then after that year I can qualify for a visa that lets me have a more permanent place in Australia. She is literally on the otherside of the world. So when you think “oh that person is 100, 200, 500, 1000, 10,000 miles away. There’s no chance of a future with them.” Distance doesn’t ruin your chances, you ruin your chances.
