    This Crazy Thing Called Love

    After years of waiting and wishing and hoping, the other day I got an IM from him!  All these years, I have gone through the whole gamut of emotions.  Most times, I would pine for him and feel so lonely and helpless.  I have written so many...

    It proved that the combination of all online

    and long distance activities equal 30% of actual requirement for a healthy relationship and we didn't even made it that much. But at least I learned this. Thank you very much and hope you knew this,too.

    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...

    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!

    I had an online relationship 20 years ago.

    he lived in Delaware and me in California. He sent me roses once. My parents hated the relationship... turns out they were right because he was strangely possessive and controlling. It only lasted a few weeks.

    Playing with the imagination is a dangerous

    thing. It is more powerful than reality. I have just ended a very intense online relationship that lasted for some months. Things I can't reconcile are the following: 1. Since it is clearly fantasy, how do I react? I didn't manage to cry. Why? Because it wasn't real to...

    A~How exactly are we suppose to meet up

    if we live so far? Answer, we can't not when our parents restrict us like this. I am tired & sick of all the limitations. I just want to see you, feel you, hug you and just enjoy every Second of your company. B~You know better, if we actually did meet, the chances of that...

    I had one when I was 20.

    Don't think I'd do it again, I was young. He approached me on Facebook, of all places, and I think that's why I've had a hard time letting go of that website even though I don't like it. We used MSN messenger, Facebook chat and emailing before we started sending letters to each...

    Two Online Relationships (Long but worth the read)

    No, not at the same time but they do both connect. My stories begin December 2011. I met Nigel on an online dating site for plus size people and those who admired them. He was the one that approached me, I don’t really remember what he said but I do remember being very...

    I met someone on this site

    who was half my age... he was going to fly to see me for his 18th birthday. I met my husband before that happened so it never moved past an online thing.

    I had a long distance relationship last

    for 7 years it's amazing what you can do with skype and texting and phone calls. The day I finally meet her in person that's when the relationship went downwards

    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 had a couple of online emotional relationships

    that actually hurt when they ended. When you talk to a person for a long time online you become attached to that person even though you don't really know the person. You only know the words he is typing. It really feels sort of real without the meeting. It isn't really healthy...

    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...

    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...

    I've had 5 online relationships

    and I never met any of the other people. I still wish I could even though I'm in a happy relationship now. Just because I think it'd be nice to meet them. I don't think I could ever have an online relationship anymore, it's way to hard :/

    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.

    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. ...
