Hey guys... I just wanted somewhere to talk about soemthing that's worrying me. I wanted to start a Thread in 4Chan or 7Chan... maybe 12Chan... but then again, that kind pages are not for this kind of topics. Specially not when I want serious answers.
I completely agree with you; don't mind what your friends say. Sure, there's always a chance of being hurt, but the same is true in any relationship, on or offline! I don't see what the problem is. There's not much more I can say than that.
I agree aswell. I've met my Girlfriend online and she comes from another Country. We usually meet every 3 weeks (thanks god there are so many cheap airlines today).
Anyway, some of my friends also say that "online" relationships (we meet so often, whats the problem?) are stupid and stuff, but I dont care about them. I want to move together with my GF so when this finally happens we can live together happily :)
You've already given yourself the answers to all your questions and thoughts, you have proof to back your ideas up and for you to believe in them. Why exactly are you asking for second opinions, when second opinions aren't even needed?
It does indeed look like you've already given all the answers you need to your problems, or more appropriately, your friends' problems!
If you've actually met him up to 10 times, I'd say it's progressed beyond an "internet relationship" into a long-distance, very real relationship!
