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..

Mine is a year and we remained best friends but we know we are soul mates. We have both tried being with ppl in our own countries but it just doesn't work! And uk to Australia costs an absolute bucket load we just haven't got 😞 I realised the past few weeks just how much I love him and ive sat here crying because he's all I want in mine and my children's lives but both having trust issues- and him hurting over a recent gf hurting him- it's like everything is against us!

Same situation here :(

We met when I was 14 and he was 16 at a concert and only spent a month together since I was moving back to my home country. Four years later, I went back to New York to visit and we met up. I thought things would be really awkward between us, but it turns out we still had strong feelings for each other. This happened October 2014. It's almost December and we talk constantly and often skype each other at night. I am now 18 and he is 20, a continent apart (I live in Brazil) and we're dying to see each other again. I honestly have no idea when/if I'll ever return to NY, but I still have hope of us finally being together. It sounds really crazy, but, if you like him, you shouldnt hold yourself back. Enjoy the moment.

I met a man on line in January, 2013. We started off being Scrabble opponents and things progressed from there. We started chatting in April, 2013 and skyping in April, 2014. I live in the US and he lives in the UK and I'm flying there in September, 2014 for a 10 day trip through England, Wales and Scotland with him. I will know him nearly 2 years by the time we meet, and we have both begun to have very real feelings for each other but realize we have to meet in person before we can see if things can really work out for us. I haven't felt this way about a man in years. Have been divorced for 10 years and was raising my children. Now that they're pretty much grown it's "me" time. Wish me luck. It's the biggest chance I've ever taken in my live other than giving birth to my children.

Good luck

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. :)

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.

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

You're welcome :)
