Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 112 People

    I met someone online three months ago.

    At first, he was just someone I honestly didn't care enough about to try to impress, so I was open and upfront about everything with him. He was pretty open with me and enjoyed my honesty. We became friends. He texted me daily, without fail. Pretty soon, he had a pattern of...
