Love On The Net

For years, I've been an outsider. I'm not the type of person that has too much interaction with others, and honestly, I've generally preferred it that way. Sure, sometimes I wished that I had someone to go to events with or just do things with, but on the other hand I was such a private person that I just wanted to be left alone.

That is, until one day, I got a message from someone on a music message board I posted on. At the time, I didn't think too much of it, but we began to talk more and more, to the point that we would be online talking about our lives and shared interests for hours every day.

This was clearly not normal, yet neither of us wanted to stop. We went for a few years talking like this, basically being best friends, even if we hadn't met in person. At some point, we decided that this was more than just friendship, and that we wanted to be together.

After about another year, we finally set up a trip where we met in person. While the trip was scheduled to last ten days, we couldn't handle separating and going back to chatting online again. We ended up moving in together, when he moved out of state to the town where I lived.

We have now been living together for years and couldn't imagine it any other way. I'm still a private, loner, type of person, but now I have someone to do things with. Someone to enjoy life with. As happy as people say you can be alone, I personally find it much better to have someone to share things with.

We both know that we can completely trust each other and count on each other in any situation, and that's something that's quite priceless. We didn't meet in a conventional way, and many people wouldn't have even pursued it, but I'm so glad I did.

I can't imagine my life being like it used to be, when I've had this. It just makes me want to get things like my health in control so that we can have many more years together, something I hadn't really thought about before. While other things in my life might not be the greatest, at least this is.

It's Only Strange Because It's New
by: Dr. DeFoore

Hi Jake - Thanks for your story. It occurred to me while reading, that the only reason it seems strange that you met on the web is that it's still pretty new.

To kids born right into the digital age, for example, it might not seem strange at all.

My brother met his wife in the same way, and they are now very happy together.

I'm so glad you have found love, and how you found it is really beside the point, right?

My very best to you,

Dr. DeFoore
