She's From: The Philippines
He's From: United States
I'd like to share with you my story. I
have never experienced a cyber relationship before... until now.
Actually I don't even consider it as a
"cyber relationship," for if you coin it that way, It's like it's only
limited to the internet. what I'm going through right now, is so real
My name's Laine, I'm 21 years old living in Manila, Philippines. I just
signed up for an ad at Friend Finder last month. My only purpose of
creating an ad is to find friends, the mere thought of finding love over
the internet never occurred to me, really.
A couple days later, Joe answered my ad, among with other guys. but it
was Joe that I found real interesting because we seem to have a lot of
things in common. Joe lives in California, USA. He's 36 years old.
Within a week's time I stopped corresponding
with the other guys who answered my ad. It was only with Joe that I kept
in touch with. He started calling me up every single day. He would call
me from the States and we'd talk for hours on the phone. We both fell in
love with each other.
I never realized I would ever love someone I
haven't seen in real life. That idea was kinda weird to me, but here I
am... lost in fascination and love with him. It's been almost a month
now that we've been talking and all. We'd tell each other "I love you's"
and "I miss you's" and all that sweet stuff. At that short time we've
known each other, it felt as if we've known each other for a looong
Falling in love with Joe is such a wonderful thing. This feeling that
runs deep in me, that I cherish with all my heart. It is a feeling that
i'll take care of. We haven't seen each other yet, we've traded pictures
and everything. I think this is really such a wonderful thing, to love
someone completely. That we've gone past the physical barriers and
accepted someone for the way they really are, for who they are. not
because of what they look like and stuff.
I know that long distance relationships are REALLY hard. It's
frustrating at times, because there's this longing... like for me, I
long to finally hold him in my arms, and finally whisper in his ears and
tell him how much I love him. To finally kiss him and hug him. I know he
feels the same way. When we talk about that "longing" we have for each
other, sometimes we end up in tears. but one thing's for sure. I'd never
let distance break me apart. His love gives me the strength to go on
each passing day loving him. He's my smile and strength, that no matter
how rough my day gets, I know that when I think of him I'd smile... he's
I long for the day we'd finally meet. He told me he's coming here to the
Philippines real soon. he's really something, he gave me a necklace and
a ring. I always wear them all the time because it makes me feel he's
always with me wherever I go. I love him so much!
Well, that's my story. I hope you don't mind me telling you about that.
I'd love to tell everyone what happens to us as time passes by.
