Sarah and Greg: After
having received a new computer for Christmas I logged onto a Christian
dating service. A friend of mine had dared me to, and since I can't say no
to a dare... >> Continued

My name is Dana and in 2001 I was
married, had 5 children, and had just started college. I went and bought
a computer to use for school and one of my teenagers showed me yahoo
My kids came up with a screen name for me
and soon I was chatting with people from all over the world. I wasn't
looking for anything but in November of that year I received an IM from
the guy who was going to change my life. His name was David and he was
the sweetest, funniest, most easy to talk to person I'd ever met. We
chatted for hours until the early morning when he asked if I'd like to
talk on the phone.
I said yes and he called me. I loved his
voice and by daybreak I was in love with the entire package. Within two
weeks we were totally wrapped up in each other. Talking either in chat
or on the phone most every day and night. He knew I was married because
I had told him the truth from the start and I felt so guilty for what I
was doing but I couldn't help myself.
I had never cheated in the 15 years I'd been
married but I wasn't in love with my husband anymore, nor he with me. I
decided to meet David in person and see if the things I felt were real.
We exchanged pictures and to be honest, I didn't really think he was
that cute but I loved him so much it didn't matter.
We set up a time to meet one Friday night
and he drove 60 miles to see me. It was kind of awkward at first but we
ended up making love in a cheap motel room. He was shy and I was nervous
but the passion was there. He left the next morning and I went back
home. I logged into yahoo and there he was. Something was wrong but I
didn't know what. The next month went by with us either not talking or
Eventually we argued and it ended. Months
later we talked again and ended up being friends. That was over 4 years
ago and since then we've gone from friends to lovers and back to friends
and so on and so on. This is 2006 and for the past year we've been
apart. I love this man with all my heart and I'm sure he loves me too
but we can never seem to find a way to be together and make it stick.
I have some advice to anyone who meets
someone they truly think they care about online. Never ever lie and
never let anyone tell you to stop seeing them. Always follow your heart
and try to be happy because life's too short to let true love wither
away. As for David and I, we have what's called a never ending love and
I have to believe that someday it will bring us together for the rest of
our lives. If not, I'll cherish the memory of us as long as I live.
