I Had An Online Relationship

    Wasn't Looking, But It Happened.

    I'm a pretty quiet person so I don't meet new people easily, but I found communicating online fairly easy. One day a few years ago I signed up for a fan site. After not finding what I was looking for on the main site I ventured into the forums to ask other fans if they knew. This...

    How Do You turn It Off?

    How do you cool your lips after a sweet summer's kiss? How do you turn your eyes from meaningful glares? How do you block the very sound of a voice you know any where, and hear every where? How do you numb your very skin after the tenderest touch? How do you slow the blood...

    I found an article which summarized online

    relationships very well. 1. "The attraction is mostly a fantasy. You know a little about someone and you fill-in these wonderful qualities you expect the other person to have, most often to be disappointed because no one can live up to your imagination. 2. The communication is...

    My last relationship was an online one.

    We only talked for the first two weeks and then he stopped so I don't know what happen. One of the quotes I have is "we meet for a reason either you're a blessing or a lesson". I told my best guy friend and he told me that I can do better which I can. All I wanted was someone...

    A guy had been very interested in me

    and also lived in my city, so I really wanted something to happen because I had NEVER been in a relationship before and almost believed that he was The One. Sadly, my parents refused me to continue the relationship because they thought he was a pervert or something. So it broke...

    I Was In Love With a Chat Partner

    In 1998, I met a guy in the 30's room of Yahoo Chat.  As I have found out later, he accidentally got into the 30's room when he actually meant to join the 20's room.  Initially, he did not impress me at all as someone who would be interested to chat again. ...

    Uh Yeah

    Then I married her, she cheated on me, knocked out one of my teeth then threatened to slit my throat.  We got divorced, I never saw her again! That's about it in a nutshell!

    So a few years ago I started talking to this

    girl I met on Facebook who lived Chile and I live in Australia. I'm kind of shy and haven't had the best of luck with women and so when she started to supposedly show interest in me I lost all brain cells and just went with it. For a while it seemed all good but then she started...

    It Didn't Last Long

    I found her brousing profiles on AOL.Sent her an e-mail or 2. She answered, I answered, etc. Then it went to phone, then to real life. We dated about a year, lived together 2 and were married for 10 until she passed away a few months ago.Worked for me.
