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...

A year and a half ago, Id just started using our home computer. Drunk with friends I started chatting to some people.

  One guy, Ric was in a bad mood so I chatted to him briefly, he seemed so nice but I was very wary. From then, we'd chat if I was online but I never used my real name or gave out any details. At this point I was about to be married and busy planning my wedding.

After a couple of months we exchanged mobile numbers to text. One night I said he could call me, It was so weird hearing a real voice.
 

 

 



 

   

 

 
 

He sounded different than I'd imagined. I'm sure it was about then I let him know id been using a different name, he was quite shocked that I'd deceived him for so long. Slowly we started to call more regular. My wedding went ahead but by the month after we were talking every day and my feelings were getting stronger.

He'd make my days brighter, we'd talk about every subject under the sun. We changed our phone plans to make it cheaper, using up 100 mins between us every day. Eventually my husband found out how much we were talking and was not happy, things started to go wrong in the marriage and I know I was in the wrong but I couldn't stop. We'd stay up to all hours chatting online which didn't help but Ric did try to do the right thing and persuade me to sort out my marriage, as he said it was my real life, it had to come first but it didn't, not to me, I loved Ric, it was so hard to accept that you can love someone you've never met but I did, and still do, mad though it may seem.

I had to go on a family holiday and I dreaded it, how would I get through the week without him. Thankfully I could use my phone but only on the odd occasion. I remember being in tears before I left. We tend to plan our lives around each other, making sure we have at least some contact every day, we have talked about meeting and I'm sure we will one day soon, I'm just scared cause what we have is so good and it would change, hopefully for the better but there's always a chance it would ruin what we've had for the past year and a half. I've just separated from my husband and have 2 kids so its not easy but Ric, just being there makes my life complete.

I'd never have believed this could happen. I know Ric so well, his good and bad points, his annoying habits, his thoughts his fears and he knows all of mine. I don't know what the future holds for us, maybe we have the best kind of relationship there is, who knows! One things for sure he'll always be part of my life whether its in 'real life' or not i dunno... we'll have to wait and see, I love him and want him more than I've ever wanted anybody, but, is that the great attraction, maybe its best kept this way and our love will never die!
