I have been living and working in South America for the past two years. It looks like I will be returning to the the U.S. semi-permanently. I recently returned for two months and then will be abroad another two months. I will spend the bulk of the winter in North America only to leave again for an indefinite period in January.
As I have been abroad for sometime my social life at home has suffered a bit. I am also finding it difficult to meet new people and potential dates at my age (35yo) in the provincial town I come from in the U.S.
I signed up for match.com on my last trip home with little success. I think this mainly due to the learning curve that comes with dating online. My question is how do I make internet dating work if half my time is spent between two countries? I doubt a lot of women are looking to start off with a part-time very long-distance relationship.
Bonus question: I have always thought it was strange when somebody only wants to date people of only one racial type. In my case I would prefer to date Spanish speakers. Not necessarily Latinas, but women who would be able to practice and keep our language skills sharp. Let me know your thoughts please!
