I'm afraid I don't know of any LDRs that have worked out where the two people didn't meet in person and spend time together regularly.

For one thing.. being negative does not help. I say," Never say never.!" We are in control of our destiny. No one else is. After you meet this person and something is there. i say go for it. You never know! I would hate for you to miss out on this opportunity! You might be kicking yoursefl, if you do not meet, of course ins safe place. Might not be a bad idea either.. if your friends also met him...

I met some one on-line. But ours is very uniquae. We have corresponding for over 2 years. But we have been very cautious . We have not formally talked on the phone till now. hahaha. That is how slow and cautious we have been. We are going to finally meet though this summer. Adn we did not even know we weere of the same religion until 4 months after we emailed. We did SKYPE though Cause we both wnated to know if each other was legite! In this ! So have fun rkae care. If all else fails,
you have made another friends and who lknows.. But if you think negative! It will become negative , and not happen.,!!

I see no reason why you cant enjoy what you have with him, HOPE its as good in real life, but keep in mind it may not be. If you feel like not seeing other people until you meet him (its not like May is a year away), then dont. Its not gonna kill you & the way dating is these days, you likley arent passing up Mr. Right in the meantime!

Let me know how it goes! My DB and I were matched through an online site. We hit it off right away! What sucked was a few days before we started to communicate he was deployed as well. We talk on the phone/IM/text everyday as well. He knew it was a lot to ask for me to wait for him, but it feels so right I couldn’t pass up the chance to see where it would go. I too would also rather wait for him than waste my time on someone who I couldn’t connect as well with. Lucky for me he isn’t going to be gone for long! Two more weeks until he comes home! I do believe things happen for a reason. It is different than your normal story but doesn’t mean you still can’t have your fairytale ending

Continuing to date that's, a good advice i think.


Free and happy lol
