(not even meeting in person first, just meeting online somewhere random and you know they aren't a creep because you've video called. )
I always get involved in these because I am way too shy and anxious to go out and meet people in person. And it can become more serious then it sounds, with plans to meet and make it real.
But online, the other person eventually flakes on me and it becomes a mess and I feel like I get heart broken over nothing.
Should I stop trying online in general? Fml

Long distance relationships are hard, you don't have that phyisical connectedness which helps establish emotional connections, but that doesn't mean they are doomed from the start. It just means you need to work at it a little more, maybe try and make the effort to see/meet the person in person etc.1

Long distance, online, ''never met in real life'' relationship... See where I'm going?
It's simply not, and will never be comparable to an actual relationship and the benefits it provides.
Instead of trying to cover up your actual problem (anxiety) and solving it with fleeting things that almost never work out (talking online and never actually meeting), try to build up your confidence, and get a real relationship you deserve.
I'm speaking from experience, long distance relationships simply fail 90% of the time. Are you that willing to risk getting hurt over and over again?
I'm sure you're a pretty girl, just probably a little shy.
At that age, you deserve to date all the boys you like, go out, and have actual fun.0
