This article helps you to decide on the right time to meet your international date.

Dating someone from another country is an exciting and wonderful experience. When you meet a woman on an international dating site, and you build a long distance relationship, it is likely that you want to meet your international date as soon as possible. Unlike when you are dating someone from your local area, where you talk and then meet for a date in person fairly quickly, with international dating you usually wait a little longer before meeting up with each other.

Meeting up with someone you met on an International Dating Site

Meeting up with your international date is a big step. Your date lives in a completely different country, which means meeting up is a big commitment. When you are dating someone from another country, it is best to take things slowly and not rush into anything. It is important that you take your time to carefully decide when to meet your date.

How to Decide on the Right Time to Meet Your Date

Step One: Get to Know Each Other

Before you consider meeting up with any woman that you have met on an international dating site, you must make sure that you know her fairly well. You should have spoken to each other on instant messenger, via text, via email, on Skype and over the phone, for at least three weeks. You should know what your chemistry is like, how well you get along with each other, details about each other’s lives, and how much you have in common. If you rush into meeting your date, and you don’t really know much about each other, then your meet-up could be disastrous.  You could meet up and realize you have nothing in common, or nothing to talk to each other about. This will waste your time and her time, as well as money.

Step Two: Make sure you Both Feel Ready

When deciding whether or not it is a good time to meet your date, you need to ask yourself one important question. You need to ask yourself whether you feel ready to meet your date. Are you ready emotionally to meet your date, and are you ready physically to meet your date? Ask yourself if you really want to meet your date yet, or do you want to take things a little slower? Also, consider the fact that flying to another country, to meet-up with someone that you have never met in person is a huge commitment, so you need to make sure that you feel ready for it. Also, don’t rush your international date into meeting up if she doesn’t yet feel ready.

Step Three: Clear a Reasonable amount of Time for your Meet-Up

If you have gotten to know your international date well, and you both feel ready to meet each other, then you need to decide whether or not you have the time available to meet-up. You need to clear a reasonable amount of time in your schedule for your meet-up. This time period needs to be long enough so that you can get to know each other better, without having to rush your relationship. Aim for a meet-up of at least three days. This will give you both enough time to get to know each other better, and further build your relationship. During your meet-up, make sure that you are completely free from any other responsibilities, such as work commitments, so that you and your date can focus solely on building your relationship.
