What does LTR mean to guys?Page 1 of 1    
Do you think it means living with a woman?

Or, do you think it means being exclusive with a woman - both maintaining your own homes - only sleeping over two or three nights a week (or more or less, as each of you sees fit)?

What does LTR mean to guys?

I have discovered that a lot of men are putting "long-term" down in their profiles when all they really want to do is run around ... DATING ETERNALLY! Of course you don't find that out until you are in a dialogue with them for a while. When I ask why they put down "long-term" ... they have actually said that they tried it with "dating" and the ladies would not reply to their emails ... now more do with the change to "long-term". However, they have no intention of really having a "long-term" relationship.

I have also run into men who say they will live with a woman or vice versa ... but do not ever want to get married again ... NOT EVER.

I can't blame them for not wanting to marry again. I don't intend to either. Been there/done that/got the battle scars to prove it. I am really curious to see if that term turns guys off...if they think women are using it as bait to catch them and then try to get them to marry. I'm sure there are some women who might, but there are probably more women who do NOT. Hello...it's not 1956 anymore. Men and women do not have to marry to have a relationship. We can have our cake and eat it, too.

A long term exclusive relationship... which eventually will lead to moving in together and being together for the rest of our lives. Having a family together.
Marriage is optional of course. You don't need to be married to know that you always want to be together.

Tiger,

Well, for me LTR doesn't mean moving in and living together. My ex had a great LTR with a lady for almost eight years until his tragic death on 12-26-05. They and my daughter both believed it worked for them BECAUSE they didn't move in together. Actually, they rarely got to see each other during the week; they mostly spent most weekends together. The relationship stayed fresh and new that way. They kept very little stuff at each other's place - toiletry items only, I think.

Having LTR on POF will get you more A$$ because alot of women are looking for LTR ...
Yuppers ... that's been my experience as well. The guys are using it for bait!

And I've heard a lot of women complaining about it ... it's in the threads. That's why there are so many women complaining that "guys just want sex" and then they don't call back even though they led the ladies to believe they wanted more than just sex. They "bang" them and don't even bother to say, "Buh bye"! Just don't call back and don't answer emails as to why.

I thought Lord of The Rings as well at first...

LTR means you are looking for someone to spend your life with. These relationship can fizzle out really fast if the pair does not have the right chemistry, because instead of thinking about tonight, everyone's focused on tomorrow.

LTR are the best relationships when they click!

LTR = Anything longer than 36 hours, or two sleepovers(with very little sleep), which ever comes first.

After that, we guys just feel like it's suffering a long drawn out death.


Isn't that what you wanted to hear???????

Going out on a second date with someone from OLD would be a LTR. Since it doesn't happen that often. LOL.

I think that two people who are in love, consistently wish to see each other, and exclusive (married or not) would represent a successful LTR. How often they sleep over or if they live together doesn't seem to factor into the equation.

LTR means greater than 24 hours ;-)

STR: 0 <= x <= 24
LTR: 24 < x

(just kidding!)
