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...

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 chat.
 

  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 talking little.

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.
