I tried it once for about 6 months, started good right up until she began asking for money to pay her bills. First it was the electric bill then her phone then her 28 yr old unemployed son crashed her car. That's when I decided it was time to say goodbye and change my phone number. Haven't tried that again but it's not to say that there aren't any true honest people out there who are willing to make a go at a long distance relationship until they can be together.

Have you considered purchasing this woman an airline ticket to come visit you? Perhaps then, she will not need the $200.00 to come visit you.

@JohnS685802 Please be very careful you are not being scammed! Many people connect online and ask for money to come and visit or be with a person, and then they pocket the money and disappear as they are not really who they say they are.  Here's info on Romance Scams https://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/info-2019/romance.html

 

Take care,

Amy

How awful for you and your mate! I lost my wonderful husband three years ago to an aneurysm, wish I could find something like this too!

My girl lives over the boarder in Canada.  We met via internet.  It is rather inconvenient seeing her as I have to cross the border and go thru customs and take the chance of being searched, which has happened occasionally.  I try to see her monthly and she always makes the trip worthwhile!

I am so envious. This is exactly the type of opposite sex relationship I’d like to have. I lost my 30 year mate to a bicycle hit and run 1.5 years ago, and with him went our retirement and travel plans. 💔😰. May I ask how you met?

Yes, for at least the past 16 years.  He lives in another country about an 8 hour trip away, including ferries and driving.  We email each other daily, travel together, and get together every month or two.  We are quite different people, but share some of the same interests, and more importantly the same political outlook.  Those differences help us learn and be challenged in good ways.  We each have our own homes where we're quite content and self-sufficient, and are happy living alone, but it's nice to have someone to dine with, travel with and especially dance with.
