Weeell, since I kinda mentioned him down below in Jen's little survey thingy I suppose I should explain. I met a guy....his name is Ben, he's 21 and from Texas. We met a week and a half ago in a chat room and have talked to each other for hours every day on MSN. He's sweet and cute and wonderful. He always tells me how beautiful I am, yesterday he told me that he could easily see himself falling for me and that he thinks he wants to. Now, nothing is official or anything, we're just "friends." I really like him though and I know he likes me...he's just a big sweetheart and I'd love to have him as a part of my life :) So there's my update....more to come as things progress, ya'll know that you'll be the first to know!

Great! Do you think maybe you should limit the chatting to maybe an hour a week so that you don't get too attached and can adequately protect yourself - and that way if he wants more time, he can call you and you can make plans to meet - but you won't have invested too much. Just looking out for you and thinking a little about your past experiences.

Thanks Deena :) I'll think about what you said, and I'm definately not going to get attached to him....he's just a good friend right now, nothing more, nothing less. Thanks again!

Lindsay, I would never refer to/talk about just a friend in the way you did - not critcizing you just trying to see whether you are being totally honest with yourself - seems to me you have a crush and want more than friendship

I do have a crush on him, I thought I wrote that, but I was probably thinking it and never quite got it out lol. I definately like him as "more than a friend" but at this point I'm happy with our relationship just being on the friend level. If it would change, great, but its not something I'm going to pursue because he's far away from me. I hope this made a little bit of sense, lol...I'm tired at the moment and that was probably one big ramble :) As always Deena, thanks so much for your concern, I truly appreciate it!
