How to handle situations where you meet someone who you have great chemistry with, but the only problem is that they are long distance and you can only talk via Skype video chat and not see each other very often in person.
How to determine if it’s worth it to pursue a long distance relationship or just try and find someone who lives near you. How to maintain attraction over long distance in-between times where you can see each other physically in person.
In this video coaching newsletter I discuss two emails from two different viewers. One of them met a woman online from his country while he was deployed overseas. He wants to know how to maintain her attraction over several months as he won’t be back home anytime soon and has noticed that she seems to be less interested than before. The other is from a guy who lives over an hour away from a woman he just met.
“Long distance relationships can be very tricky to maintain attraction when you can’t see each other in person very often. With video Skype you can talk to and see the other person along with their facial expressions almost as if they were physically with you in person. However, the risk you run is to talk too much electronically to the point that you get bored with one another. Once you are bored, there is less of a desire to see each other physically in person. The key is to give women the time and space to miss you, fantasize about you and let them do 70-80% of the initiating contact. Women are more attracted to men whose feelings are unclear and if you let them reach out to you most of the time, then you never have to worry about contacting them too much to the point that they lose interest. Just like in show business, you always want to leave them wanting more. If you can’t make dates to see each other in person, you can make Skype video dates you both can look forward to. Having something to look forward to builds anticipation.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
