  1. I don't know how it happened. How I became so addicted to words on a screen. The funny part is, a few years ago, I saw someone go bananas over someone who they had been chatting with online who just up and disappeared one day. They even made a second account and searched for their former online friend's account, just to see if they had been blocked. When they could not find them with the other account, they just fell apart and said "why?? Why did she just shut down her account like that?". And my reaction was "dude...it was someone you met on social media for crying out loud!". And yet, a coup
  2. Bingo! As a matter of fact, someone gave me something to ponder. Of course, when they said it, I just shrugged it off, but on the inside, I was like "yikes! They are right!". They told me "dude, you jump up and down and can't wait to spend an evening on your couch, chatting it up with someone online. And yet, you aren't even an afterthought to them. Don't think for one second that they are just like you, staying in all the time, living off of chats. No. They have lives. Actual lives. While you do not". It's sad how I have let that happen.
  3. You are probably on to something. In retrospect, I believe that there was someone in her life (possibly even a husband, for all I knew) and he gave her an ultimatum. I think that she knew pretty far in advance that she was cutting ties with me and she didn't want me to suspect it because she knew how sensitive I could be. So she just played it cool and made me think everything was peachy. That is why she made sure to send me a recipe through a PM the day before. So that I would not see the unfriending coming. But, yes, I think that there was a man in the picture. Definitely there towards the e
  4. I am the very picture of someone with no life. To that end, I am pathetic. In fact, one time when I was wrapping up a chat with my now former online friend, a relative asked me "don't you have like, a life of your own?" and I replied "I do not". I probably shouldn't be laughing about it. Another time when I was explaining my online friendship/romance (with that woman) they asked "so...is she...your future?" and I said "yes". Looking back, that was a ridiculous expectation. What in the world did I think was going to come of it? My social life (or lack thereof) was on a screen. For a year and
  5. It's been a roller coaster ride for sure. I tortured myself by going back and looking at some of our old chats. And I found myself getting emotional because I was thinking how those chats were from back in happier times. I just don't get why she did this. Especially the cold, backstabbing way she did it. The way she talked to me the day before like everything was fine and then the next day, she was just gone. It's like the last year and a half meant nothing to her. I had someone tell me that I'm in the worst of the pain now and then it gets better from here. I think that is true. It will only
  6. Long story short, I met someone online back in November 2017. We clicked right away. We chatted on messenger regularly and even talked on the phone some. While we did want to meet in person, we simply lived way too far apart and travel was just too expensive. So, we just settled for making the most of technology in order to talk to each other. As time went on, I could sense a change in her. Sometimes it would feel like she was pulling away from me. It would worry me, and I would ask if I did something and she would always reply with a fast "no". She would assure me that there were times when s
  7. Bingo! At the end of the day, none of it means a thing. It's really comical to see them hand wring over this to the point that it raises the question of when do they have time to live their own lives.
  8. Actually, it was her grandmother (my friend) who deleted her granddaughter's post. I had the misfortune of sharing a recipe at right around the same time that her granddaughter shared that highly inappropriate picture. The granddaughter went to pieces because she felt like that my post (which was a recipe) should have also been deleted. According to the family, it wasn't about the content of the posts, but rather, it was the fact that she would delete her own granddaughter's post but not delete mine. What they don't seem to understand is, if it had been the reverse, then my post would have bee
  9. As I already said, that was a different situation entirely, and I have completely and totally washed my hands of my family once and for all. Secondly, this woman is only a friend. She is not a girlfriend. The relationship is strictly platonic. She is well aware of my past and what I went through with my family. I have not kept anything from her. Her family has a history of doing this. They are very jealous of anyone who comes around their mother/grandmother/aunt/sister/cousin, etc. They can't seem to handle seeing her be close to anyone who isn't them. So, the best course of action is to send
  10. A situation has come about recently that has absolutely blown my mind. It's actually quiet funny. The problem is, I can't laugh about it, at least not just yet. While it is funny, it is also VERY scary, because it could end up affecting me in a very bad way, although the likelihood of that isn't very high. It's just that having that possibility (albeit small) hanging in the air is unnerving. So, here is what happened. I have a very good friend. Someone that I love dearly and would do anything for. She means the world to me, and she cares very much for me as well. However, recently something ha
  11. Well said. I have probably been looking at it all wrong. I am currently in a situation right now where I am praying that someone is just all talk. Or should I say, all bark and no bite? Anyway, I am sure hoping that they are all bark and no bite. So far, that is the way it seems, I just hope it stays that way, LOL
  12. This is actually a bit of a rant. There are talkers and there are doers. The talkers do just that. Talk, talk talk. They don't just talk up a big game, they talk up the best game. And then of course, there are the doers. The doers don't do a ton of talking, they just do what they are going to do. And the talkers, of course, do nothing. I have noticed this a lot more lately. Most individuals that I come into contact with fall into the category of talker. Oh, they have the most wonderful and amazing plans. They are going to do this, this, this, and that. But, when it comes down to it, nothing h
  13. Yes. I am very plagued by anxiety. And it has only gotten worse here recently. I had a severe anxiety attack just a few hours ago when my online friend was not on messenger. I got really panic stricken because this is just not like her. We usually tentatively set up a time when we will talk on messenger. It’s real hit or miss on whether or not it actually lines up. But, if the time that we (tentatively) set turns out to not be a good time for one of us, then one of us will text the other so that nobody is left wondering what happened. For instance, she will send a quick message saying “hey. So
  14. Thank you so much for the replies. It have got to deal with my anxiety. It is absolutely flooring me. Also, I have to just take it a day at a time with this. I need to be well aware of the fact that there simply are no guarantees in life, while also not letting fear and the "what ifs" cloud my thinking. Melancholy123, you hit the nail right on the head. As the saying goes, you have what you say, and if I continue to hand wring over this, then one day it may very well come to fruition. Thank you so very much. I am feeling better about the situation. And thank you as well rosephase. Your last se
  15. Late last year, something happened that I never thought would happen in a million years. I met and became very close with someone via Facebook of all places. I never viewed online friends as the same as real life friends. I would hear of people meeting and knowing each other through social media and I would shake my head. But my how things change. I met someone via Facebook who has become a VERY close friend. We have never seen one another in person. We talk via messenger mostly and have had a few phone conversations. While we hope to possibly meet in person one day, we are not getting our hop
