There’s a lot to love about Alaskan men, but to the layperson, it might not be obvious what makes them tick. For non-Alaskans, dating a man from the Last Frontier can mean embracing a whole new lifestyle. Stick to these 10 commandments and you’ll be well on your way to a happy relationship with your Alaskan guy.
1. Thou shalt be prepared for distance.
Maybe he works on the slope, two weeks on, two weeks off. Or he’s a commercial fisherman or service member gone for months at a time. Whatever his employment situation, dating an Alaskan man often means getting comfortable with distance. It can be tough, but it also gives you the best of both worlds — copious amounts of “me” time when he’s away, and a deeper appreciation for the time you do get to spend together.
