    Girls and boys, please don't!

    It's not worth it. Your heart gets broken and you can't even kick the guy in the balls. I always knew it was stupid, then I fell for someone and they proved me right.

    Long-distance online dating SUCKS!  I hate it and while it's nice to know someone out there loves and cares for you is fantastic, but not having them close by is torture.  Makes things worse.  At least if it's online and they're in a neighboring state then it's not...
