I've been corresponding with a man on over50singles. org everyday for about two and half months. We shared all our feelings with each other and many times the communication was intense and loving and deep. So here is my question. When is a relationship real? What does it mean to "know" someone you've never met? What should be the parameters of an internet friendship between a man and a woman? I broke it off with him yesterday and I'm wondering if the whole thing had been kind of a joke.

Three years ago a man from Egypt found me on Fb and we had started an Online affair. After getting to know him better on Skype, I then flew off to the magical land of Cairo where I stayed for 30 days.
Things went so well that after returning to the states, I flew back over, where we ended up tying the knot at the Ministry of Justice. I resided there for a bit, learning how to be a Muslim's wife, Learning even more than his culture and religion...
I have been back in the states for over two years now, penyswift, and we still carried on our "Online" marriage. However, many things in our life caused us much strife, Mainly because I have not gone back to be with him. The Middle East has worsened since then and with the "Blows and no go's," there have been many of my own ups and downs, break ups and make ups, making this a Marriage not made in heaven.
You had your own good sense perhaps' Reality check' for ending what you may have thought could ever be anything More than it was. I don't call it actually a "joke" but a wake up call that you may have come to terms that you may never meet, that online wasn't for you in being hooked at the hip.
LDR is one of the hardest kinds of relationships to have and to hold And Uphold. It takes two special people to maintain this, be tied down with not only your cam But with your time, and when only one or None are making the effort to keep the lines of communication open or even to compromise, it can go dead in the water.
My husband was the perfect partner for 'Internet intervention.' He was a loyal dog that never laid down in the corner, was always there for me, no matter what time of day or nite. However, I got weary of the cam seen, always having to look my Sunday best for him and it became a turn off for me finally, which is another reason I am not as good wife to him.
However, finding the perfect partner closer to home may be a better route for many. But on or offline, it is always in God's hands.
Good luck. xx1
