Stay in contact with this guy that you met travelling and start getting to know each other.
If there is mutual interest, the communication will persist and blossom.
You have to be certain that this is a guy that you genuinely want to get to know. You should have no doubt about this.
It is important that you feel this way because you don’t want to waste your time and his.
If you met this guy travelling, you can start connecting in your discussions with him by asking him about his other travels.
Try to learn more about where he has already been and what he has experienced.
This is a great way to get him to start opening up to you and looking forward to talking to you. Once you are able to get him to talk about something that he really loves to do, you will be able to learn even more about what makes this guy who he is.
This is how you begin to build further rapport with him and keep the connection that you had with each other while you were travelling alive.
Try not to set expectations for what you want out of this.
This can be really dangerous because you don’t quite know where you want this to lead at this time.
One very important factor that you must consider before you begin to communicate with him on a deeper level is whether you are willing to live where he currently does at some point in the future.
Do you even believe that it would be feasible for you to do so?
Would you be capable of leaving your friends and family to be where he is at some point in the future?
Would you be capable of leaving your job?
Would you be capable of adapting to a whole new environment?
These are all very important questions that you have to ask yourself.
Oftentimes, people start a long distance relationship without asking themselves these questions.
They get caught up in the moment and how good they feel.
They carelessly decide to just go with it and hope for the best.
They don’t think things through.
Unfortunately, these are the same people who end up in broken long distance relationships because they couldn’t handle the distance.
You don’t want to be this person. You should be cognizant of your actions right now. You should be able to determine what you can realistically do and what you can’t.
You can’t rely on the hope that this guy would be willing to physically live where you are at some point in the future. He may not be able to do so.
There has to be a part of you that is fully certain that you will be able to make this move if the need arises.
This is what you need to answer first.
If you truly believe that you can make this move and be willing to do so in an appropriate amount of time, you can start communicating with this guy on a deeper level and see where things lead.
By doing so, you will be able to give this interaction a chance and not spend so much time wondering what could be.
