Yeah they can work out, but you have to be ever so careful!
I started talking to a guy via a social networking site and he seemed cool. We started talking more and it was becoming obvious that he kinda liked me. I thought it was going to work out. He wasn't actually on the other side of the country/world, he lived about 5 miles away, and he was a friend of a friend. I agreed to meet him.
Biggest. Mistake. Ever.
Let's just say he was an octopus who wanted more than he was getting. Thankfully I wasn't hurt although I do have regrets. Now I'm extremely careful with who I contact online.
Around the same time I started contacting a guy who I met through a forum. He was the same age and we had similar personalities, but sadly he lived at the other end of the country. However there was something that really attracted me to him from the moment I met him. We eventually exchanged msn contacts and started talking more until we got out of contact due to our exams. I realised that after a few weeks that I missed talking to him and mailed him. A few days later he replied and since then we started talking more and more. Then one day he asked me to go with him to a concert in the summer. So I got him to buy the tickets and started thinking on how I could get my parents to let me go.
Eventually I picked up the courage to ask him for his mobile and then eventually his home number and he gave me both. I had thought of different plans on how I could get round my parents, this was until I realised that the easiest way was to be truthful and tell them out straight. And I did. Surprisingly my parents went with it as long as my mum got to meet him and his mum before the summer. So last week after a year and a half since I first came in contact with him, I made the 500 mile journey to go meet him.
I was nervous, but after saying hi and giving him a hug everything went PERFECTLY. I have to say compared to the first time I met a guy over the internet, that day was heaven!
I have to admit, I felt slightly ashamed about meeting a guy through a forum, but now I'm accepting it and so are my friends (although I do get the occasional jibe). And although we're not a couple, we are very, VERY close friends and were taking things slowly. I hope that maybe someday well get together, but I plan to let time and fate have its way. The distance is very hard to deal with, but if you have the patience it will work. If you're uncomfortable at all (which you appear to be), PLEASE WALK AWAY! I was uncomfortable with the first guy but I ignored it, I wish Id listened to myself.
Remember you don't know this guy until you've met him, you don't know who he is or where he's really from. He might not even be a guy! So be careful, and even though I have met someone great online, I've met multiple other guys who are definitely not who they say they are. If you're having doubts, walk away while you have the chance. Its true what they say, be safe and not sorry =]2
