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...

I was 15 when I first met my online love. Me and a couple of friends were sitting in the computer room at school just searching for people to randomly talk to on PenPalWeb.

  I was bored and thought "what the hell, I'll find someone to talk too as well". His profile caught my attention and he seemed to like everything that I liked, especially boxing. I wrote to him and never expected to get a reply but I got 1 email from him and after not hearing from him for 2 months, I forgot about him and one day came across his email addy again in my sent items and wrote to him again.

It started from August and when he went away to Mexico in December, I found I really missed him and had feelings for him in my heart....I just didn't know how to tell him.
 

 

 



 

   

 

 
 

When he got back, I hinted and he later told me that I was all he could think about when he was away and on my birthday, Feb 4th, he told me that he liked me.....and on Feb 14th Valentines Day, he said he loved me and wanted to be mine so I started calling him in New York.

Later on in September that year, the tragedy in NYC struck and I felt like I had a reality check.......I cried all day at school because I didn't know if him or his twin or family were okay, and if something had happened, we would have left each other without a proper goodbye. I rung him and talked to him and asked him if he was okay and without me realizing it, that phone call made a big change in our relationship and our future.

January 2002, we started chatting again and things picked up for us. We were more open with each other and I got to know him a lot better and I could see the change in him. He told me that he had never stopped thinking about me and loving me and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, and I felt the same way. I loved this guy a lot and no-one could ever understand what I feel for him. No-one but us. We are so eager to make things work and we've been together 7 months already and its the best 7 months that I have ever had with someone. We know each other so well, he's my best friend and my boy and I love him a lot for who he is. He's coming over to see me next year in July and from there, we can really see where we're going. The late night phone calls and hours spent on AOL chatting to him are all worth it. Listening to him breathe and sleep on the phone is the nicest feeling that can only be shared between two people. I get so much loving from him and the only thing that's missing is the physical side of it.

I think long distance relationships can work if u really want them to, its all about the love and anything can happen. Best wishes to everyone out there that is in a relationship like mine.
