Question Is "Distance" Really Important for Online Dating?~

Often I will find some one I really feel like I would get along with very well, find out they just happen to be in an exotic country (like Finland or New York), get very excited, and contact them only to have them either completely ignore my well-thought-out lengthy message or reply upset that I'm outside their "preferred area" when it was clearly stated so on their profile.~

For me, that is just a "would be nice" kind of thing preference, but really I am open to meeting some one from any where.~

After all would you really want to cut-off the possibility to meet your lover simply because like a remote 5 feet from your sitting butt "they're too far"?~

If any thing I would ideally want to get to know some one online for awhile before I want to "meet up in-person".~

I mean seriously: the whole point of dating "online" is to get to know some one BEFORE I actually "go out with them" so that I can hopefully catch most signs that we wouldn't like each other.~

Otherwise I'd go out and randomly point to some one and ask them to date me, sink or swim: I still do this and have rarely had great results, the one great result I can remember is when I was too scared to even ask if she was exclusive if she had a lover already as when I feel some thing for some one I get really nervous and very shy.~ Ironic since I'm usually very extroverted and outgoing with most people.~

What do you think about this topic?~
Love yourself, you are beautiful!~ ^_^

*Believe in yourself, you can do anything*!~ ^_^

Appreciate every thing, every thing is precious.~
