Sadje’s Sunday Poser — Literally or Figuratively

When I first saw Sadje’s Sunday Poser, I took the question quite literally, where “how far” was referring to distance.

After graduating from college and returning from active duty in the army, I was living in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC and working for a company in the city. Many of the employees of the company also lived in the suburbs. Some, like me, in Maryland, and others in the Northern Virginia suburbs.

I was single back then and a lot of cute young girls worked at this company. And for some reason, a number of them seemed to be attracted to me. However, working in DC and living in Maryland, I made the conscious decision to not get involved with any of those nubile young ladies who lived in Northern Virginia. All other things being equal, I labeled them to be “geographically undesirable.” Hence, traveling across the Potomac River into Northern Virginia was, in terms of love, a bridge too far.

But then I reread Sadje’s question and realized that she might be posing that question figuratively, as in is there anything I wouldn’t do for a loved one. To that question, I will quote a line from Meat Loaf’s song:

I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
No I won't do that

    Every person has a limit, even where love is concerned. Be it distance or some demand that they cannot meet. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Fandango

    You were wise beyond your years to take distance into account.
