Girl lives far away, testing whether she's worth dating

Relationship Coach's Analysis

You're trying to figure out whether you should date her because she lives far away. There are 2 things you should've verified in your conversation:

  1. That she's very interested in you
  2. That you two are compatible

You did well with #1 by challenging what she says and not always making it easy for her to respond. Her continued positive responses makes it a strong case that she's interested in you.

You could've done better with #2. You talk about liking "challenges" but you weren't specific enough about what you meant. You should've tried figuring out specific qualities/interests about her that you like too. For example, if you're into baseball, you should've mentioned baseball.
