How far away is too far in terms of preserving a long distance relationship?

honestly, I think it depends on how often you can visit each other and also factors unique to your relationship (if either of you has jealousy issues, that makes things a lot harder). my now-husband and I did long distance for 6 months at the beginning of our relationship when I was studying abroad (so we were a continent apart), and it was SUPER hard, but also made our relationship wayyy stronger. I think doing long-distance within the continental US isn't that bad, though, because you can at least see each other every couple months (presumably, if not more).

other factor to consider is: how likely do you think you will be with this person for the rest of your life? if that's something that is even weird to CONSIDER right now, I'm not sure that it would be worth it. if you could see being with the person forever, even if you're not *there* yet, long distance may be worth it.

Definitely agree with the last paragraph! You also need a mutual end goal, something to work for. I've been with my SO for three years long distance. If you're both working towards something it makes it easier. If one person has eatablished their life and wants to settle down, it could pose problems.

Oh and also agree about the jealousy. You NEED trust, and the ability to not always know what the other person is doing.

Ahhh thanks to both of you, this is incredibly helpful! I think I agree with the statement that it's easier if it's within the continental usa. I think it's more psychological at that point: "we're only an hour and a half plane ride away" but the fact that you can't just see the SO whenenever you want can be mentally draining.

I also agree 100% with the need for trust.

Yeah it was super lonely at times. It may be different in a school setting though.

I think after three years though, I am willing to put transferring as a priority. If I don't get into a NYC school. I know it's a huge hassle and expensive, but being able to be together is worth it for me. Also I like the schools :-)

For us single people, how far of a distance do you think is an acceptable spread for your tinder? I try to keep my swipes under 25 miles currently, but I imagine the city I might drop that to 10

Come one, dude. Tinder is so 2016. The trend these days is to message people you find attractive on LinkedIn and ask if they're interested in meeting up for drinks.

there's your answer. I am currently off tinder (thinking about setting it back up!) but I would say 2-4 miles. I'm not as out for it, apparently. do whatever you're willing to do. In the suburbs I would have said 25 miles seems fine. In Chicago 7-8 miles seems crazy.

TLS dating app? It'll just show LSAT/GPA/law school. Instead of yes/no it can be yes/retake
