My first real love came from the internet. Lasted about 2 years. Any regrets? Just remember it is real easy to deceive and to paly mind games over the internet. Oh yea, the distance is a big burden as well. If you can handle the fact that you don't know what the other is up to at all times, then it might work out.
Your mind is your greatest weapon...
I did it way back in 1993, when it was all bullitin boards. it was fun, but I would not advise it to girls/women, unless the guy is coming to YOUR house, and you have someone with you on the first meeting. The one i hooked up with was just sexual, and only lasted 3 weeks!
This will freak some people out on here considering my recent posts but I am now married to a wonderful man that I met in a chat room just over 5 years ago. We lived about 1,500 miles apart but he came to see me after 4 months of chatting and we've been together ever since. The great part about the internet is that you can fall in love with the real person, not just looks. He told me he loved me before he even saw a picture of me. Yes, you can find true love on the internet.
The year after I graduated high school(1996) I met a guy on the internet, he was a senior in high school, he lived in South Dakota, I lived in ILlinois, I finally went to South dakota the summer he graduated high school and spent a wonderful few days, thena couple weeks later he made the drive to Illinois to see me. He was a wonderful person and will make somebody a wonderful husband someday(if he isn't already married), to make a long story short, I screwed up pretty bad and we don't keep in touch at all....I sometimes regret screwing things up with him, I"m sure we would have been married by now, but if things had worked out I wouldn't have my son, and I wouldn't have my wonderful husband that I am married to now. My sister in law met her fiance over the internet...she lived in New York, he was in either California or Chicago(I can't really remember which) but anyway they're both living in Chicago now and getting married in the Virgin Islands next August. IT can work, just beware of the freaks and weirdos and psychos out there...but you can meet those anywhere.
I believe in internet relationships. I have a friend who has meet a afew guys off the net and date, she has afew regrets about some. As for long term romance shes heading in the right direction ...im also thinking of meeting someone, his sweet, were traded pictures and stuff and i like him and he likes me..only thing is im from up north and he lives down south
