I have a online boyfriend, we chat everyday on webcam, text all the time and plan to meet this summer. He does live about 8 hours from me. Yes we met in a strange way online in a horror movie chat room, but my friend keeps telling me online boyfriends are not real, that I should grow the f*** up and meet someone here in my hometown. I lived in my town for many years, and met no one. The guy I met is really nice and respects me a lot. I am really happy with him but my friend keeps telling my online dating is fake. So what is your advice on this?

I think your friend needs a reality check. Online dating is a real thing, and she can't tell you not to pursue a relationship with someone online. Did she really tell you to grow the f*** up? I personally think she needs to grow the f*** up. Sorry, I just feel strongly about online dating. I've had people feel awkward about my boyfriend who I met online, and it was ridiculous. Everything worked out fine though and we're happy.2
