I recently started to get to know this guy I met on the internet and I don't know what's happening. I've never dated before or anything and I have talked to guys online before. Everyday we liked each other more and more as we learned about each other and I found myself doing things I'd never done before. Usually after knowing someone online for such a short while I might not even show a regular head shot pic of myself but with him we already went on webcam to chat. I like him, he blushes and gets shy sometimes after he says things and he doesn't seem afraid to share anything with me. We've talked briefly about meeting when he's finished with university. He asked once if we were boyfriend & girlfriend and I said I dunno, I think we're still getting to know each other.
He said he started liking me because of my personality and that he'd like me even if I was fat. The other day he said he loved me though. No one except my mom has ever said that to me before. I don't know what to do and I find myself afraid, afraid of how I feel, of what I might do, of losing him. This is all so new to me.

I think that you are doing the right thing in taking it slowly. After all, this is someone that you really can't get to know completely right away because you are connecting over the internet. I think that you should continue to just be yourself and be honest with him and yourself. Remember to never try to rush a relationship because of fear of losing the person. If the person is someone that is trustworthy and someone who is datable material for you, he/she will wait for you. If not, you cannot rush love or rush how you feel about the person. Let him know up front what's going on so there is no confusion - like him thinking you are in love with him if you aren't yet or something like that. Sometimes it takes a while to find out how you feel about someone, so you should probably think about how you really feel about him before answering him, and then when you do answer him, make sure that it is honestly, because you don't want to lead him on or confuse him or hurt him in some way. I hope that helps! Good luck! :)2
