Here's a reply I had to two comments regarding internet relationships.>>13362501>>13362562
Eh, I shall tell my story as well.
Well Anons, like you guys I thought I had found the person I loved on the internet.
I met this person on a forum and we joked a lot, becoming friends quickly. After a while, we were both being ronrey so we decided to play some MMOs and other online games together and I really developed a bond with this person. After a while I wanted to get to know this person better so I started to get direct, since I tend to be that way with people. I learned that the person lived a rough life as an outcast for some reason, so I felt a strong sympathy towards this person. We did some dorky romance on online games, like holding hands or running alongside each other, nothing sexual, and that was fine. After a while, I learned her name, and I told her mine. At night I would think about her before going to sleep just think about her and dorky thing we could do next. Sound good so far? I wish it ended there.
Turns out that this girl I loved was actually a man. I was mortified by this, betrayed, and I felt a deep feeling in my chest next to my broken heart, reminiscent of death. I took a month off of the computer to cool off from that. I learned later from a friend this person was a transsexual, and had been discriminated because of that. The next time I talked with the person, I didn't bring it up. Instead, I decided that instead of freaking out or confronting this person, I would give them some peace, some hope. I told him I loved him despite the lies and that he would be the only man I would love in a way, and that even if his life continues to be rough there will be one person who knows who they are and loves them for that.
