Different Continents, Different Lives?

I met this amazing guy online one day, we've been talking for about almost 2 months, but it seems like years. I'm starting to grow really attached to him, and you can even say i'm really starting to like him. I don't know whether it's right or wrong since it's the first time that this has happened to me. I have a friend who's brother met a woman online as well...he lives in Texas and she lives in the Philippines and yet somehow they managed to work things out and they are even married now and have a kid! For him everything ended up right and good. Then again I hear many things about meeting people online and how things end up wrong, so I really have no idea what to do. Do I keep talking to him and see where things go? Do I stop talking to him and just forget I ever met him? He lives in Germany and I live in Texas, that's hundreds of miles apart. Is it worth falling in love? Every time we talk i go into another dimension where it's just him and me. He always listens to whatever I rant about, he makes me laugh when I feel at my worst, he makes me feel like a kid all over again. I wish we could talk forever, but I know he will soon have to go...I really don't know what to do...i'm still young you see...i'm 18 and he is 20, so we both are still young. Also I really don't know how he feels about me. He makes me feel like if he feels the same way about me, but i'm terrified to ask where I stand with him because I know that pretty soon he will find someone...and i know when that happens i'm going to be torn apart..

Yes! Exactly what's happening to me!! Like the same thing!

I live in Europe and he lives in Latin America We have both said that we love each other, we both feel the same way. He's about to get a girlfriend soon though. He told me he would never change the way he talks to me but wouldn't that be cheating? :/ and I was afraid to ask him if he loves me too in the beggining. But when I did I felt so much better and relieved. I think that I love him more than he loves me sometimes. But no matter what happens at least I know I've tried. So yeah don't leave him. Ask him. See how it goes! And good luck!

Thank you. :)

Have you ever heard the phrase " It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all"
Never regret the things you didn't do. . . . if you end up with this guy then great but if you lose him because you didn't try then it will hurt forever.
Life is about experience.... experiencing life in every way. Surely E.P has taught you this.
No two people are the same and to find someone who is compatible with you in every way is a lot harder than you'd think.
I met my now wife online. I lived in the UK and she lived in Australia. We talked for 5 hours a day every day for months.
I knew more about her than any other even though we had never met.
It seemed I had searched for this one woman all my life. . . . when I found her I thought I have to take a chance, I only have one life, So after 5 months of talking online and on mobile phones ( very expensive phoning Australia ) I decided to buy a ticket and go meet her.
I have never been happier, We fell so in love, I sold everything I own, House, Car, Boat etc etc. Left behind my family and friends and here I am happily married and a beautiful future ahead of me.
I have lived in Australia for 5 years now and couldn't live without my wife.
Take a chance, if it fails you can say you tried and will gain an education from that failure.
Every failure in life builds the foundation for success.
Go for it.

Thank you so much for those words. :)
It gave me a huge push. :)
Good luck to you and your wife. :)

Hi, I met this boy about a year ago and we have confessed our love for each other online. He lives in Holland, me in America. I plan to go meet him one day.

I would definitely go for it. Just see where it goes. i met a guy online after I met his mom in person on vacation and that was back in July. We talk every day whether it be on BBM or skype. We are together and are so in love. I really have never felt this way about anyone. Neither of us thought it would happen but it just did. He is coming here in July, and I'm planning on moving there in 2 years when I'm done college. You never know what could happen with someone. So I think you should keep talking to him and see where it goes!

Learning,trusting people online takes time...loving someone online takes even longer...

I met my husband online too :)

Dear Naza, I had been through your situation. Only for me it was almost a year long. Then I discovered whatever information he had provided me was fake. Not only his name but also nationality, age, education ...everything! So if you have not seen/met him in person...be careful about what information you share with him. Always take care of yourself.

Thank you for your advise Fluffy. :) I'll keep that in mind..

Dear Naza, I'm also in the same situation as you are and it has been a year and a half for me. We became friends for over a year before he asked me out 6 months ago. Time flies. You will face many problems at first, many heart breaking and stuffs but please, have faith and believed in yourself.
Love.

Thank you Emina...those words mean alot to me. :)

You're welcome :)
