Since yesterday I've got a boyfriend. We met online but never in real life. He lives in Africa and I live in Europe. I feel guilty because he told me how much he meant to me and hoe he loved me and all that stuff but I don't really feel that way, a bit maybe but not enough. But then yesterday out of the blue I said to him, so, are you my boyfriend now? And he of course said yes. But I don't want it! I said it because I feel sad for him, because he's got a tough life there and I wanted to help him and now he's suddenly my boyfriend and everyone knows! I don't feel happy about it at all, I'm not sure what to do.

And he could be telling you lies. Did he send you a photo? Tell you his age?

Yeah, we skyped a lot.

Poor African Teens or whoever he pretends to be, do not...DO NOT have a computer.
He is not who he says he is. Trust me here. And whatever you do..DO NOT send him any money.

I know that, but he works in an internet cafe. And I will not send him money.

Hmm if you don't want a relationship with him, you need to let him know that. Allot of us care about people and want to give them support. Maybe you two could just be friends but I think you want to date someone you really love. You can message me if you want to talk more.

But if I break up with him now, he'll be devastated. He's very poor an can barely afford to talk to me anyway, I'd feel so guilty.

I know but there is many people in his case. You want someone makes you happy
