    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 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...

    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. ...

    Two Online Relationships (Long but worth the read)

    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...

    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 :/

    In 2012, I met a female on a site like this

    and we became very close. We spent a great deal of time together and shared pics, stories, chats, etc and a lot of personal details about each other. The relationship was often volatile as she wanted to restrict my online activity while she appeared not to be prepared to do the...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
