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... >> Continued

I got my first computer 2 years ago and
the first thing I wanted to do was chat...
So I came across a chat program called Mirc
and then I was later referred to icq.
Where I met a wonderful guy that lived In
Canada. We started to talk and we talked everyday for several months. We
didn't even exchange pictures for a long time and when we did, we both
seemed happy with the results even though I wasn't being honest. Because
I never thought this internet dating stuff would ever work at all.
Well after that we talked about meeting, but
I was kind of apprehensive because I wasn't totally honest with my
internet friend and I wasn't really trusting of the internet. I had
heard bad stories about people coming to your house with out your
consent and so and so forth.
Well months and months went by and he was
still talking about coming to see me and I was still telling him no.
Well then a year went by and he told me he really wanted to come see me
and he just couldn't understand why if I cared for him and confessed my
love for him why he couldn't come to see me well.
After a little over a year went by and we
still hadn't met but talked everyday he told me "you gotta be lying to
me about something". I told him no even though I was. Well he said ok
and we continued to talk. Our love for each other got deeper and deeper
and my fear to tell him the truth got worse and so I just couldn't bring
myself to tell him I wasn't who he thought I was at all.
Well almost two years into this whole
mess I had gotten myself into, I finally told him that the me that he
pictured was a lie and that I know he would hate me for it because he
hates liars. He then told me, "You're right... I hate you... Goodbye".
And I have never talked to him again.
I know it was may fault for lying and I
hate that I did it but I can't change that situation now. I can only go
on now and I never lie like that. I tell other people - make sure you're
honest because you could lose someone you really love. Like I did....
