MENSHEALTH - Apr 25 - International online dating, has been gaining popularity in the past 5 years, according to AnastasiaDate, which has seen a 57% member increase during that time. While the average online dater likes to travel less than 20 miles, the international dater typically treks 2,000, says Mark Brooks, AnastasiaDate’s Chief Strategy Officer. And that opens the door to new women, new experiences, and a new mindset. But while traveling the world and meeting gorgeous girls sounds like paradise, it’s not quite a reality, unless you have tons of cash, and a super-flexible job. A 2011 study found that, on average, New Yorkers stay within a 4-mile radius every day, while people in Los Angeles are tied to a 5.5-mile range. "Even if you stick to your city, you’ll meet new people in different neighborhoods with different routines than you", says Michael Cunningham, PhD, a professor at the University of Lousiville.
