Have gotten beyond the awkward niceties stage and the "What's your favorite..." stage, and now we're on to the slightly giddy flirting and double entendre stage. Pictures have been exchanged, so that's one hurdle cleared, as well as the required comparison of the pet peeves and bad habits we're willing to admit to.

I think I might actually have an internet-based relationship worth, tentatively, dubbing with the actual word 'relationship'. Not really comfortable with the title 'dating' until I've spent at least a couple of hours in his actual presence to establish that we don't have the urge to strangle each other in person. If only he were not a four hour drive away. (How fair is that? Not fair at all, darn it.)

If so, then eHarmony was not a complete waste of time.

And four hours isn't REALLY so far away, in the greater scheme of things - at least not for an initial meet up. Admittedly, it is a bit of a long drive for a casual dinner date, or to unwind together after work, but that can usually be worked out if the chemistry is powerful enough in person.

It's one of those things I swore I would never do, though. I'm not a big truster of long distance relationships. But, at the same time, I'm not prepared to reject someone who is Very Cool simply because of distance.

Well, okay, if it were across the country, I might have to seriously think about things. But! It's not. And there's a lot of stuff to do in Asheville, which is about the half-way point between the two of us, so!

Tentative yay!

Re the drive: I hear you.

Try a 4 hour airplane ride away. *Peers at Undauntra*.

What I'm saying is, distance isn't necessarily a huge deal breaker. Good luck with it.
