In general it’s wise to go for people within your own league otherwise you will either feel inferior or they will treat you as inferior.
If you’re an unattractive NEET with no friends or job or social life who expects an attractive dude with a job and very active social life to go out with you, you’re being a bit too hopeful. I only say this because I’ve been in a similar situation before with someone who was very active and hardworking and social and I was lazy and a slacker and had no friends either and over time he got frustrated and resentful.
A LDR can work but only if you are both introverts because a social person is meeting new girls all the time and they usually get tempted along the way, men are obsessed with physical touch and visuals whereas women tend to be more romantic and sentimental and can handle LDRs easier. Men are just impatient coomers unfortunately.
Work on yourself, try to soft looksmaxx, consider getting a part time job or picking up a new hobby or skill and talking to new people even just online. Trust me men respect it and are attracted to it way more when they see you have a life of your own and aren’t constantly hanging on their ever word waiting for another message to come through.
