Mars & Deborah 3: As
Deborah went to the departure hall to fly out of Adelaide I knew that
the next few months were going to drag on slowly and that I would miss
her like crazy. I just didnt want her to go but that was the reality of
the situation. When she got back...
She's From: ? He's From: ?
Hi....Just thought I'd write in my
internet romance story.
I've known this guy, Andy, for a couple of
years but I didn't really think much of him at first as he was really
quiet. When I was 15 and he was 16 however, both our families went on a
trip to a theme park and me and Andy seemed to get on really well. Weeks
passed after that and then he sent me a random email telling me to
download MSN messenger. So I did and at first, we didn't really chat
much because, we were practically strangers. Then one day, when I was 17
(he was 18) me, him and another friend were chatting and she started
teasing me and Andy about the fact that we both fancied each other.
We decided to play along with it and even
after my friend left the chat room, we still carried the act on. We
mailed each other everyday after that ending each mail with...'lots of
love and hugs and kisses.' It soon became more than just a joke. I
started falling head over heels in love with him. We used to chat every
night for 5 hrs sometimes. Sometimes it would be really light hearted,
other times, deep and meaningful. We got on so well and part of the fun
was neither our friends or our parents knew how much we chatted to each
other on MSN. This went on for 6 months.....emailing each other everyday
and chatting. He even wrote me a 2 sided letter telling me what he had
done each day when he went on holiday cos he couldn't get access to
email! Finally, he had to go to university. I was heartbroken because I
knew deep down that things wouldn't be the same. I did visit him at uni
(to this day, no-one knows about that either) but we are 'just friends'
so nothing happened. I couldn't tell him how I felt because I was afraid
of rejection....I still am.
The strange thing is, all we were were just friends really. We did say
we loved each other and stuff, but that was just the continuance of the
joke started all those months ago. I don't know if he loved me the way I
love him still. We still email each other every day but we hardly speak
cos he has loads of work. I cry myself to sleep most nights thinking
about what could have been. We were made for each other and he was the
first guy I've ever loved. I just want to tell everyone that although
internet romances are great, just make sure you don't get too involved
because it breaks your heart when things don't work out.
