Riddle me this:

My prefix is gotten before the race starts.
My suffix will enter without pausing parts.
My infix will soften with heat, switching hearts.
I am, altogether, a place to remain.

My prefix, an asset but not as it starts.
My suffix won't enterta'n mixed ret'na parts.
My infix is crying, but back in my hearts.
I am posted out, unlike quite a domain.

What am I?

The answer has $10$ letters, and the title is also a clue.

I think the answer is

Settlement

My prefix is gotten before the race starts.

Set - "Ready, Set, Go"

My suffix will enter without pausing parts.

Ent - Enter without 'er'.

My infix will soften with heat, switching hearts.

Melt - It's backwards within the word.

I am, altogether, a place to remain.

Settlement

My prefix, an asset but not as it starts.

Set - Asset without 'as'

My suffix won't enterta'n mixed ret'na parts.

Ent - enterta'n without ret'na

My infix is crying, but back in my hearts.

Melt

I am posted out, unlike quite a domain.

Settlement

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, you got it correct! Well done! No need to explain the title (I am sure you understand why I wrote it like that). Also, the part "di" is in undisturbed (and di means two, sometimes, referring to the two Riley verses) hahah. Great job! When would you like the tick? :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 20 '18 at 0:01

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you! Since you are nearly on $30k$ rep, you are obviously experienced, especially with riddles. Thus I ask you, is there any advice you can give that would possibly improve my writing of riddles? $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 21 '18 at 9:41
