You know, I could go on and on talking about all the stupid things about meeting online people. I always felt it was dumb to meet up with someone and expect to have something special with them. Those relationships rarely work, and it's a heck of a lot easier to simply find someone locally. I know a great many girls who clearly like me that I could start something with. Some are good friends.
But a year ago I started talking to Audrey. We connected quite easily. I thought meeting her would be really hard since we're a couple states apart. Friday I went to see her for the first time. Of course I had photos and have talked nearly every night to her over the phone, but that's not the same as animation. I have to tell you as stupid as meeting online people is, it was the absolute best experience I've ever had with a person. We're already talking about doing it again, and things have only seemed to get better for us. Of course I'm not going to trick myself into thinking she's "the one" or anything. I will say she's the best I've had so far.
I don't recommend trying to take online relationships seriously, but I do suppose there are a few rare exceptions where a couple can actually make it work. I've never been so close to any girl in my entire life. I'm still taking things slow with her, but even with a few troubles here and there she's still special to me. Of all the girls I could have, none of them at this point in time can replace Audrey. As long as things continue to stay good between us, none of them ever will. So I'm hoping for the best things to come.
On a side note, I want to mention the Sonic the Hedgehog live action thriller! This will blow your mind! It's worth taking a look at for anyone who's a Sonic fan. Sonic heads out to save Tails, and Knuckles assists Sonic WITH HIS FISTS!
