How to Know If an Online Guy Is Interested in You!

I love writing about online dating topics; I want to help people navigate through all of the potential pitfalls.

Online Dating

As you surf the internet looking for sites of interest, chances are likely that you will run into someone that you connect with. If you have never had an online romance, you may question how you can have feelings for someone that you have never met. Once you get past this unsettling feeling, a new world opens up. If you don’t take the time to explore this new relationship, you may let the best thing that has ever happened to you slip by. Once you have figured out that you would like to date this guy, another important question arises. How can you tell if he likes you? Here are some signs that can help you tell if that guy you are crazy about is crushing on you!

  • He spends a lot of time with you. A guy that is interested in you will spend hours of his time with you. You may play games online, visit websites together, or just talk until the wee hours of the morning. The more you chat with each other, the closer you will become. He will make comments that he misses you when you are not online and that he thinks about you all the time. He will also ask when you can meet up online again. You will also notice that he is making time in his schedule just to meet up with you. In between his school or his job, he will find time just to say hi. This shows you that he thinks about you even when you are not there.
  • He cancels social plans. He stays home on the weekend to hang out with you online rather than go out with some of his friends. Guys are usually super glued to their buddies, so pay attention if he says that he canceled a night out with the guys just to be with you. He may also cancel dates with other girls just to chat with you, or he may stop dating girls all together.
  • He gives you a cute nickname. A nickname is usually given when he begins to think of you as more than a friend. Or he may begin to add an adjective in front of your screen name. This can include words such as sweet, honey, sexy, or lovely. Other guy friends may give you nicknames, but the one your crush gives you will be a term of endearment.
  • Protective. He becomes protective of you when you are playing in online gaming sites. There are some scary people online, and there will always be a few lurking in online game rooms. Your crush will stand up for you when someone makes a rude comment to you. He won’t tolerate someone mistreating you and will speak up.
  • Offline messages. He will leave you messages telling you that he is online. Or he may tell you the reasons why he is unable to be online. He may also leave you messages that tell you what his plans are for the day. For example, he may say that he is running to the store and will be back in an hour. These are all ways to tell you that he wants you to know the best time to find him online. He may also be thoughtful enough to say good morning to you each day or say goodnight even if you are unable to spend time together.
  • He will begin referring to the two of you as “we” or “us.” This may be his way of telling you that he is thinking of the two of you as a potential couple. He will say ‘we went to bed late last night’ instead of ‘I went to bed late last night.’
  • He begins to take an interest in your life. If he is interested in dating, he will request a picture of you. Most guys will agree that they need to be physically attracted to a girl before they will consider dating her. He will also want to know your favorite movies, books, and songs. It is his way of telling you that he cares about the things that you like.
  • He introduces you to his friends. If you are from different states or countries, he will want to bring you into his social circle. It is a great way to get to meet new friends. It also gives you the chance to see what he is really like around other people. Guys that have a great personality will get along easily with others. If he is also able to treat others with respect, he is worth keeping.

Tips & Warnings

  • Before proceeding any further, ask him if he has a girlfriend. At first, it may be hard to know if he is being honest. The more that you get to know each other, the better you will be able to tell if he does have a girlfriend. Most girlfriends will not allow their boyfriend to be online for several hours at a time chatting with a woman.
  • Never exchange personal information until you get to know your crush better.
  • Don’t try to force a relationship. If you were meant to be together, be patient. It will happen.

Melissa, I can understand you had a hard time and had a mental breakdown when he left you but I don't think the very last statement of yours applies to all guys. I met my man online about 5 years ago when I was 21 and now we both are happily married with a kid. Online relationships can work and I am a living proof of it. It depends on guys, some just like to play with your feelings while others are faithful and want to see you in your finest state and if they love you, they would want to walk on the same path of you so you can end up at the same destination. Just because one guy ditched you doesn't mean that all guys are like this, We need to examine and observe and then choose. Sweet sayings can be deceptive~

Melissa on April 23, 2020:

So, I met my friend two years back on Discord. I was sharing a server with him with three other members. It was Christmas that day so I decided to wish all the members a "Merry Christmas". The three other members of the server were offline that time but he was online and playing on his Xbox. As soon as I texted him, he instantly replied back. Just a simple Christmas wish lead to an endless conversation. We both literally talked for the whole night and a few hours when the next day started. We had a lot of similarities and our personalities were quite resembling too. After that conversation, we both talked everyday (Just for a few hours though because we both had school). We loved talking to each other, he gave me a nickname too. Sometimes I used to wonder if there is anyone sweeter than him. He used to listen to all of my problems and gave wonderful solutions for them. He helped me with my studies. I was a freshman and he was a sophomore so he had experience which lead to me getting straight A's in every subject. He made my life wonderful.. I got really attached to him. I'll be honest that I never got any special feelings for him but gradually started to like him after a few months. We both cancelled our plans for each other. We also decided to meet too but on the same day we were supposed to meet, my grandmother died in a car accident and that's why we couldn't really meet. We shared music with each other. He wouldn't even find me annoying which is the thing I liked the most about him. He'd even change his likes and dislikes for me.. I even introduced my friends to him and we all would talk for a long time. On Valentines day this year, he proposed me and I said yes. I lacked experience so I really thought I was ruining his day but he said it's fine. After some days, he said that we cannot date that broke my heart.. I liked him but he just turned away. Reading all the stories below made me believe that all guys are like this, they make you fall in love and then leave you.

Why is a 19-year-old girl and a 70-year-old man dating?? That's illegal and that's being a pedophile. Even though she's above age he could do things to her!! Watch who you talk to, you never know if he could be a fake, scammer, pedophile, kidnapper, or a thief. I'm with a boy right now and we talk every day, soon I'm meeting him again. We are in a long-distant relationship but we keep the communication going, we love each other so much.

Selena on November 10, 2019:

I met a guy (Jake) on a singing app and I started talking to him and he introduced me to his friend (paul?)...first I was like why the hell do I need to make contact with him!? Then we started chatting and one day he asked me for my nudes and I took it lightly and was Frank with it but then he got serious and I nearly cried cuz the guy who had introduced me to him had said that his friend likes me...and after few months I gave Jake my no. A long time back and we were converting and he asked me that Paul was asking for my no. Should I give? Nd I said yeah cuz I thought everyone deserves a chance and Paul apologized to me and said sorry for his behaviour he was stupid and Its been 2 years I nearly have stopped talking to Jake but Paul is really a good guy who really respects me and talks with me frankly we crack jokes. And stuff like that

Gemini girl on September 28, 2018:

Dating site is one of my fave app. Last May i met the man who i am looking for..but unfortunately our communication cut it off, he used to ask me why we can chat in hang outs i said no I'm not into hang outs Ok ill try to register in hang outs then my registration there failed i don't know why. After two months i try to open hang outs to know if my registration there is still..suddenly i was surprised i had a message from someone when i read all those message i have a feelings of oh maybe he is the man that i used to met in another dating site and i found he is, And i reply all the messages that he sent. He is a nice guy he talked a lot i mean he chat all the things about him and i used to believe that coz i like him that's why our exchanging chat or messages it takes a month, but he changed after and suddenly disappear. I fall in love with him although i can't see he's real photo. Maybe he changed because i accused him that one of scammer,Yes he used my scammer and i refused him to give some money that he ask me I trust him so much i gave my email, i gave my ATM number, but he failed to do what he want.. It's a big lesson for me not to trust to someone that you only meet in dating site.

I have a friend that I met last month. He was really friendly and funny. I had met him in a Group Chat. When he pm me in messenger, I was really excited to know about what he is going to say. Until many days has passed, our friendship was really strong. We always chat for our problems and moments.

But the feeling of our friendship was awkward because he said to me on the GC that he loves me. My mind was so shocked I just answered him that I love him only as a friend. It was really awkward because all our other members were teasing us. They made ship names.

I quickly told that to my bestfriend, she also teased me with him but I was not convinced and just laughed.

Minutes passed, he pm me and chat to me like nothing happened. It was really just awkward

I decided to tell my cousin about it and her reaction was very happy and also teased me. But she said if he was really honest he would not be careless about it.

In the end, I had feelings for him but I didn't say it to him because it will ruin our strong friendship.

Betsey on December 03, 2017:

I have trust issues. I've had my heart broken. A boy said he liked me... I liked him... We dated. He had been lying about everything. I had sworn off romance.

Then I started to look at my best friend on a different way. Let's call her Peggy. She's sweet... Kind... Beautiful... Caring... She's more than I deserve. She's the best. So I realized I had feelings for her. Naturally, I fucking freaked. I had friends who were there for me though. It was mostly Engelica, Alex, and Laffy.

So, I told her. She was chill with it. Said she didn't like me in that way.

A few months later... I was freaking out. My crush was too big for me to handle. THE GAY NESS WAS OVERWHELMING ME!

This was actually the time Engelica came around. So I asked her for advice. I said I had a crush on my friend. Engie had a crush on Alex. Eventually I told her it was Peggy.


So she dmed dear Peggy.


-Engelica, 2017

Pegs was like "Who says I don't?"


I dmed peggy, deciding I would drop it if she said she didn't.

"Do you like me?"

"*nods while Juno steps on my face*"

My life has meaning now. Thanks Pegs.

Olevia on July 17, 2017:

Im talking to this guy I met on a dating site it's only been a month and this guy ask me to marry him what should I do I like him he seems to be great

In Denial on June 30, 2017:

I like someone online and was only able to admit this to myself now. on June 08, 2017:

I have this famous actor from the USA if I have whatsapp and asked for my number on facebook messenger cause he wanted to get to know me on a more private and personal way. We have been chatting awhile now and feelings have formed between us. We are both married, my marriage has been falling apart for awhile now. He says he is also getting divorce cause the child his wife is carrying is not his, which he says is his managers child. He says all the wonderful things any woman wants to hear, the funny thing is I believe him cause he sound sincere.

We have both fallen in love with each other. I have confessed my love to him and him to me.

The only thing is I am finding it hard to believe him and I want to believe him. He has asked me not to believe the things people are saying on the internet, cause it is not true.

How will I know how he really feel about me, by not sounding desperate or needy. How do I find out if he really does love me like he says he does? I know he must feel the same way I do when I tell him that I do really love him too. He wants me to leave South Africa and go live in USA with him.

How can I really know if he means what he says to me on whatsapp?

FluffyMouse on May 21, 2017:

I've been attracted to this one guy I met online for quite a while... I know this sounds a bit weird, but he's like 11 years older than me. I first met him on a forum for a TV show we both liked. He sent the first message and we immediately hit it off. After a bit of back and forth through PMs we decided to switch to Facebook Messenger. We talk on voice chat sometimes through Discord, which is always fun. I just started talking with him again after not really talking for almost a month (I said something along the lines of "life getting in the way") and he seems to have really missed me. Made me feel kinda bad :(

Even after all this time, I'm not really sure how he feels about me. He does have a cute nickname for me (****-chan, yes I know, the weeb talk). And he has said fairly innocent lovey things like "I bet you look cute when you blush" and cutesy stuff like that. However, he claims he doesn't flirt, but is "polite"... Not really sure how stuff like that counts. I don't think he would go into the other stuff because you know, I'm just barely considered a minor by my country's laws. But he always sends me music and has even shared a few personal things with me. He even wants to get me a present...

Yet I know he just wants to be friends, at least for now (big age gap, living opposite sides of the country). He has even told me about a couple other girls he was into (not in a while but still). But through all the heart emotes and the hugs and the things he says to me on a daily basis (e.g. talking with you always puts me in a good mood, getting a good morning from you is the best way to wake up, gratuitously complimenting me), I'm not sure how to view our relationship. I'm just trying to play it cool, roll with it is all. This isn't the first time I've been with an older man after all, so I don't want to seem too desperate and juvenile. Oy vey, I'm just so confused.

Your mother on May 17, 2017:

I love him. He says he loves me and i say it right back. We roleplay kisses and hugs and say sweet things. But how do I know if he is talking to other girls online the same?

alice on April 26, 2017:

I met a boy in online first we will just friends later he said he loves me and so do I. We become a couple but one or two days later he became to ignor me i don't know why.

We also use to fight alot our relationship is only a week and i think he is using me help me please if u can i m having a very terrible time. Thank u

anonymous girl on April 18, 2017:

hi i met this boy who is the same age as me on a virtual game i said hi and then we started talking , i asked his name and he asked for mine then things started geeting deep he showed a pic of himself and i said he looks nice. He then asked me to give my social media account username he then gave me a friend request ever since then we are inseparable he talk with me for hours and hours on social media!!! btw i did not send my pictures just yet cuz i had a problem with ma phone after a few weeks he was dying to see my pic so today i sent it and in my opinion i was nervous cuz i aint all that. He told me that he thinks i look beautifull and commented that i look sexy lol but then he just went offline and i dont know why cuz he never told me. Before i sent my pic he and myself were so serious about the relationship he and me even said we waana meet and get maaried in a few years The other thing i am worried about is that i have told no one that i am speaking to this boy online my parents dont know they woulldd killmeh does anyone have any ideas on lies i can make up if me and this guy acually want to get married how can i lie and say i met him btw he lives in a contrey far away from me... most appreciated

melanie on January 27, 2017:

This guy used to help me immediately when i message him. Then after maybe about 2 months he called me annoying. finally he just started ignoring my messages and i couldn't figure out why he drastically called me annoying and then ignored me. I wanna know whether or not hes doing this because he feels for me or gave up on me? iv'e also heard when a guy is nice to you at start and then drastically becomes rude its because he feels for you but he wants to hide it by being all rude is it true as well?

thank you for your time

WBT on December 22, 2016:

i met a man online two days ago and we are from totally different countries. i never met him and i started talking to him as friend . but , only after two days he started to say that he miss me, wants to talk to me by phone , that he loves me and want to marry me . i do not have these kind of feelings for him and i know him only for two days . i dont know what to do

Theforgottenred on July 03, 2016:

It makes me sad reading some stories here in comments from their experience through ol rel. Right now i am chatting a guy for 3weeks now. But i'm not so sure if he is serious or what, i am not so sure too if i'll get serious to him too hehe. We wer both comfortable talking to each other, and exchange pictures together, and sharing ideas. Sometimes we don't talk for a day or 2days, but still we keep in touch as always. We both know we have our own things to do. He never forget to reply to me, i am always the one who forget to reply. Kinda hard to tell what he really feel.. There's a time he's been really sweet to me and i didn't mind what he's saying because i don't want to get so serious. And there's a time that he wanted to tell me something that makes him so shy to tell me. I think i knew what he was trying to say to me. But i won't deny that i started to like him, it was just that i was thinking that it's hard to be in an ol rel and LDR. And someone is asking me out already irl, which really makes me frustrated.

ParisW on April 15, 2016:

Hello I meet this guy on meet he is a french guy so I was attraction to him we start talking on Skype the good thing is he live about 25 minutes from me he is visited his family here so we talk everyday for 2 weeks straight he be calling me cute, pretty, sexy etc and also he say " my Paris" I asked him the other day do his family or friends know about me he say his brother do he say that the feeling he have for me only happen once for him soooo I know it so quick to have feeling talking to someone for 2 weeks but we talk afternoon to 4 am.... I make up a fake date and told him about it I could tell he was upset and then finally he told me that he was jealous

Hey on January 16, 2015:

Ugh. I like this guy. We met about 1/2 a year ago ingame and were like best friends now. We chat almost everyday during holidays and weekends, but when it's in the middle of a school term or something, we stop chatting mostly. He's the same age as me, and lives in Australia. I live in NZ and Ive always thought of moving to Australia after my studies. We've had many talks about the future and how we have to meet irl. I really don't know if he likes me, but our friends in a social group in the game that we met in, keeps on shipping us together. We ignore it and say shut up, but what if he really does like me like I like him? And we are both just leaving our relationship as it is? We are actually friends on facebook (i know it's not safe) but I've seen his family and all. Both our families are aware that we are constantly talking to someone online. We are still pretty young but I really hope this works out.

cent on November 09, 2014:

I met this guy on facebook 1 year ago. He was the first one to send the friend request, then of course I accepted it. He was also the first one to send me a message. Then we always talked a lot about personal life, interests and etc., and i didn't expect that we have a lot in common. Almost all of the signs stated above matches him except calling out of nicknames. He is also a college student like me so we are both busy during school days. He leaves a message whenever he won't be online. He always tells me what happened in school, at home and whenever he has a trip with his family. And he was the first one that i consider as a friend, because in real life i don't have many friends and he is the only one who always lends an ear whenever i have some frustrations that i wanted to let out, because it was my first time to open up myself to a friend. I don't know but I think I already fell in love with him, but i'm not sure if he feels the same way like i have. But in our current relationship as "friends" today, he's not the same as before :( i always leave him long messages because i already missed him, we don't talk too much during school days because we are busy, we just leave messages to each other, but this semestral break he changed :( i thought we could chat for too long like we did a year ago :( so i tried to wait for him to go online but even he was online he just ignored me :( i approached him first through the chat but he also ignored my message eventhough his online and he replied too late :( it made me sad :( i also cried for that and it was my first time to cry over a guy :'( so these past few weeks i tried to asked him if i did something wrong or said anything to make him upset or made me mad, cuz i just noticed that he became cold to me :( but he said that he was on a trip with his family and other relatives, and he was depressed and sick that's why he doesn't go online that much, it made me at ease knowing that he was not angry at me. But today, he is still like that ignoring my messages :( so i started to ignore his messages if ever he will send one to me :( so yeah i did it but still it made me cry :'( seriously i cried :'( i want to understand him because i don't want to loose that friendship eventhough i love him :( i hope we could talk like we did before and have a chance to tell him what i feel about him, i don't care if he rejects me :( I just really missed him :(

seriouslyConfused on June 11, 2014:

i met him on facebook 2 years ago..and we became really close...but during that time,i was already committed to another we remained as best friends but sometimes he would get really emotional and tell me how much he wants me and he loves me and that made me sad because i loved the other guy :(

and one time he told me about his ex-girlfriend....she wanted to get back together with him...and me,being a good friend,adviced him to give it a try and he would be like "but i only want you :( "

but he is a player and he always tell me about his he dumps his girlfriends when he finds new ones...and i would tease him and sometimes advice him as his friend....but he would always tell me he loves me...

slowly,i don't know when...i started falling for him i dumped my real life boyfriend to be with him...when i told him,i expected him to be really happy but he was like "why did you do it?you would regret it" :(

but we continued our relationship/friendship (i still dont know what "ship" ours is :/ )....he used to tell me "i love you too"s when i tell him "i love you"...but after sometime that stopped and he would just smile instead of "i love you too"s....

after a few months my ex-bf started talking to me again and i told him about this and he was like "well get back together with him" and i was really sad :(

i didn't get back together with my ex and my ex hates me now :( he blocked me in facebook

now am really in love with my friend but something seems to have changed betwwen us :( we don't talk that often because he had to go abroad for his studies...and he is always out with his friends there and we barely talk :( i don't know if he still loves me....i am feeling down these days...:'(

Kaidence on January 03, 2014:

I've been chatting with this guy I meet online for a month now. We've actually meet each other once after the 1st week of talking. It wasn't a date we just wanted to see each other in person. We still text everyday but he never mentions anything about going out, meeting up to get to know each other better. He will text me 1st for the most part then after a few texts back and fourth he will stop texting, but if I go online to chat with other friends or see what people are talking about on my news feed, I see him online, I just don't say anything about it. I'm beginning to think he talks to me when he is bored or is trying to feed his ego. Oddly, he told me after a couple weeks of talking that he liked me a lot and hoped I liked him as much t, how he wants to care for me and he wants to see where this goes between us. We'll his actions sure changed. We went from texting everyday talking about everything from past relationships, what we want from a spouse, life, family and joking around lasting for hours to the we hours of the morning, to a mere hey, how are you, what are you doing and no response after those things. It seems to be a waste of time to continue to converse with someone that judging by his actions must not want to hold a conversation or seems to only hit me up when it's convenient for him. I think the next time he text me I simply wont respond or waste my time with a mediocre minute or two convo only to not be replied back to afterward. Do you think my assumptions are right?

Jess on April 07, 2013:

I've loved a guy online for 3 years so far and he tells me he loves me sometimes. He loves teasing me and making me mad! It gets annoying sometimes but i do like it but then he doesn't care about me as much as i do about him. He doesn't ask much questions. He doesn't know me but i know everything bout him. Weird huh? I wish he loved me. I love that prick so much ahaha

I am a boy, and I'd just met this guy I really, really like.

He swings both ways as well, And.. I just wanted to know how to get his attention. We've been talking for three days, and he'll fall asleep with me at the computer. Pathetic of me, right? Well, Anyway, I just want to know how to get his attention.

Jamescy on July 20, 2012:

I'm not sure what's really going on in my "relationship" right now with this guy I like online. The beginning of our friendship was a messy one and things have barely cleared up a bit. So we started out as friends online while we both were in relationships that were long distance 2-3 years ago. We weren't close then and we contacted each other constantly for only periods of times since then. We would usually talk to each other a lot for a few weeks and then stop completely for a few months and then something happens and we end up getting in touch once again! So we got back in touch around last year of August? And ever since then a lot has happened. I liked another guy during that time in reality but then fell in love with my online guy friend in the end?Anyways the thing is he was in the process of ending a bad relationship and when I told him that I liked him it was the worse timing of our lives. One thing lead to another and we started talking daily and got close. Sometimes he would slip in the beginning and tell me he "misses me" or thought I was "cute" but ever since I made fun of him about saying those cheesy things he's stopped completely. So here we are talking to each other almost every day for the past 7 months. We only take breaks when he's spending time with his family but either than that he usually calls me in the mornings and we talk throughout the whole day until we both go to bed at night. So does this guy like me? I've told him I liked him and I wanted to date him and be with him but so far he's told me he wants to hang out with me in person to make sure that we get along and he's at least somewhat attracted to me then. I mean I don't mind that but for now I'm just really confused at what we are. So far I've gone on at least two dates and he hasn't at all, he knows that I'm still considering myself single and I do go on dates when I'm asked out. He doesn't complain but most of the time when I come home after my date he would ask me a lot of questions on how it went. Also he always makes fun of me! And I hate it!!! Sometimes he even yells at me, well it sounds like he's yelling . Any who what is up with him? Does he like me or what?

Ella on July 05, 2012:

Hi. So, there's this guy and I've been talking to him for about 8 months now. We started off as casual friends, talking about various subjects, then the relationship between us progressed and now we can talk about anything and be totally open with one another. He calls me a cute nickname, is very protective of me and becomes easily jealous when I talk of (FAKE) guy crushes I have. He is constantly leaving me messages when I'm not online.. Recently, he asked for a picture of me, which I am slightly nervous about.. Does the behaviour he has shown me so far mean he's interested in me?

KuroBara on May 29, 2012:

I guess I fell for someone online whom I should not have. Even if that person said he likes me but he hardly fulfilled a single sign above...fml

Mary on May 06, 2012:

I met this guy in youtube, he found me actually... We both have a lot in common and we usually fight because of religion, personal stuff, but its what normal friends usually do... Anyways, there was this time where he told me that he liked me (it was last year I guess)... I actually friend zoned him, but I do like him... The thing is... We both live in different countries and I don't want to have a relationship with someone I haven't met IRLife... I check his youtube videos a lot of times, well not much cause he only got a few vids. There are some times when I don't feel comfortable with him because were far away and it just makes me sad... He is also kind of protective... There was one time when he thought I was stalking him. But I would feel the same way too if he were stalking me... Were still chatting by the way, its nice that he trusts me... I'm just one year younger than him which is not much .

Dani Stramer on April 24, 2012:

So I met a really really awesome guy online and we chat for hours on end almost everyday...but hes hard to figure 15 so itz hard for me to fly out to where he lives (California) from where i live (Ohio). I would love to meet him, but I can't and it's so hard to tell if he likes me or not from just our chats. I think he knows that I like him, but he still comes back everyday to talk to me so that's good I'm glad he's not creeped out by my crush on him, but I'm torn. On one hand, if he didn't have an interest in me, why would he come back? but on the other hand, if he liked me, why would he leave it at short messages like "haha", and "cool", he acts just kind of uninterested sometimes...I type long messages and he types one word messags...not sure what to do!

emotionally wrecked on February 10, 2012:

i met a guy online for almost a year now..he sent me a msg first and was planning to ignore him coz he is not my type physically speaking and way older than me.but i don't know what went through my mind that i first we just leave offline msgs then we start talking for almost24/ was too late before i realized that i had fallen for him and theres no way back.i get jealous and that's when i started getting moody coz i don't know how to handle it with him..he was my first love and im already 32,he is 51..we stopped talking for a while when he found out how i feel..i was trying to avoid him so i could get over him fast..he just said that he cares for me a lot,nothing more than that.after a while we start talking again but not like we used to.i thought i was over him and its ok to be just friends for a lifetime like we promise but i was all wrong..eventhough we don't talk as we used to and im trying my very best to not let my emotions control me but its soooo useless and its getting really hard for me but still i manage to show him im ok(that's what i want to believe)but he could read me like a book.days and months go by and he took a vacation and before i realized that i fell for him we were planning to meet but after everything i get scared so eventhough i really wanted to meet him i didn't asked for a vacation from my boss.before he left we were still talking and he is telling me where he was and said he was so excited and everything but when he reach his destination,he's not replying to my messages and i said to myself "ok,i wont disturb u".after the vacation we start talking again but i didn't ask him anything about it..we talked as if nothing happened and then suddenly he said that i didn't ask him about he started telling me and i told him,u should have not done it alone,u should've contact some of your friends there.he just said he wants to enjoy it alone..i want to believe him like i used to but i cant..we go on talking until after a few weeks he told me that he already has a gf and he had proposed to her and she accepted..i didn't cry that time,just said its ok i could have guessed it anyway.he said that the timing for us was wrong even if one or both of us wanted it..i told him not to worry about me and he keeps telling sorry that i got hurt coz of him..i was still joking him about it and act as if everything was fine with me but i was totally wrecked after that talk we had.. i was trying so hard to get over him.i found out all infos about the girl and it is killing me..i kept myself busy with work and friends but i feel dead inside..i would cry anywhere anytime and even confide on strangers just to make me feel a little friends are telling me that they cant see the old me now,i look lifeless with lifeless swollen and with dark circles around my eyes..i cant even swallow my food but i am forcing myself..i accepted the fact that he is getting married but sometimes i would go online and he would suddenly go offline,he didn't know i was just invisible all the time and everytime he did that i go mad but i just keep quiet and avoid him as much as i could...he said im trying my best to avoid him and i told him its not just for me but im doing it for him too and the girl.and sometimes he would bring up the old topic of how i was before and i told him to forget it coz its a very old story now..i am torn between the lifetime friendship promise we made and how i feel and all the things he said...he still act as if he really cares about me as a friend(i know he is)but that's killing me..i blamed myself for being so stupid and breaking my rules of not falling for guys online..i was sick for a month now and doctors cant tell the cause and i get frustrated the last time he talk to me i was a little bitchy and he just said ok and talk to me later but maybe it will be the last talk for us..i don't want to torture myself anymore so i followed my friends advice to delete him completely and chance my address..i cried so hard for what i did but i need to save myself first...i will still keep my promised friendship but without communication until i get over him totally...i still wish him and the girl a happy married life together and hope that the girl would check his diet coz he is diabetic and sometimes stubborn too that made his blood sugar goes up..i used to remind him of the diet and sent him some recipes and asked him to have flaxseed everyday and it really helped him maintain his blood sugar to just a little over me crazy but i still do care and still wish him all the best...

my online boyfreinds is now married. but i still love him a lot..:(

mimi on October 30, 2011:

so iv been talking to this guy for a few weeks now but we have been in contact off and on of a few months. we fb chat all the time we chatted the other night for 4 hours and he lives in another country so it was really late and he had to get up the next morning to train.and he says really nice things to me all the time like he said that it would be an honor to call me his and just so many other things like that but we also talk about sex is that bad. and i don't think he has told his friend and i don't know if i should just ask if he has but i don't want to seem really kingly please help me!!!!!

he's so far away... on October 21, 2011:

Mm, well... er, I met him... about five months ago, and our chatting hadn't really became regular until the start of summer break, where it was just a few 'Hi' and 'How are you', but as our chatting became more frequent (about an hour a day on weekdays, about a few hours on weekends), we became closer, and we talk about practically anything... he's a, ahaha, little bit egoistic, romantic in his own ways, perverted, sometimes a bit forgetful, and hilarious, but I still love him more and more every day. He lives in Italy, and I live in America, but we try to connect whenever we can, even if it's just a 'love ya' or 'I won't be on this afternoon, I'll miss you!'... but there's just that doubt that he might not just mean it as much as I do, because of the cultural difference...

Bella on October 04, 2011:

Not sure how old most of you are on here posting your ONLINE stories but I have one of my own. I am now 30 but when I was 20, I had met someone that I fell hard and fast in a span of 2-3mths. The first time we chatted, we talked for 7hrs straight. Obviously, we hit it off. We kinda had the feeling that we met someone "special". Anyway so we kept in contact, wrote letters, emails, exchanged pictures. After a couple of months of talking, we decided to take each other off the market, so to speak. Soon after that, we fell for each other. I was young, just starting my life, he was older in the military, already had his career established but that didn't bother me. We just had amazing chemistry and always put in each other in stitches from laughing. We had talked about me going overseas to visit him. I had my passport and everything read to go but something happened and then I wasn't able to. We were both disappointed but we didn't let it sway us. We knew he was going to be back home at the end of the year. We still chatted and allowed that time to develop an intense connection. Eventually, crappy timing, he didn't have access to the messenger like he used too. So we talked less than we got accustomed too. We still sent emails but they weren't as long either. So overtime, we had a lapse in our communication. I didn't really let that affect me until he finally came back stateside. He was now home. We still talked, don't get me wrong but it wasn't like every day. We'd talk some, or leave each other off lines/msgs. That's when I broke up w/ him, I wanted to start over. Didn't want the pressure to be there when we did meet. I didn't feel like we were "together" in that sense. Again, due to an unfortunate circumstances, I couldn't go see him as we planned. That hurt like hell and I'm sure he hurt too. However, if given the chance to do it all over again, I would, even with what I know now would happen 2x. Life isn't fair sometimes and can give you a cruel hand. So sometimes on-line relationship can work, and sometimes they don't. If someone likes you or has feelings they'll show it. Prove it to you. Don't analyze over everything, if he/she backs off, they'll come back. Men don't process emotions like women do. They're more inclined to take things in slowly. Sometimes you'll meet someone and you click right away and you're practically inseparable. Like I was w/ that guy I mentioned in the above post. Others, it takes more time. Esp on-line, b/c you're only meeting part of the person. Talk to the person long enough, you'll develop feelings but only b/c you're infatuated w/ the idea of the person. Not the person themselves. Be careful, don't let yourself be played for a fool. Don't rush into to the arms of someone you meet on-line. If you like someone and things fall in place down the line. Go for it. But do it slowly and cautiously. Yes, it's possible to find love on-line but sometimes in my case, fate plays a cruel hand.

Good Luck

Rebecca on September 29, 2011:

I met this great german guy online. We are having our anniversary next month. He is so great and spends almost most of his time talking to me. He sends me sms everymorning and night to wish me well. He loves me and he calls me a cute name. Iam crazy about him. He has the cutest voice ever. If theres anyone there like us, plz hang in there. Online relationships really work.

We always misses each other even we always use to chat everyday.. whenever he's going to sleep, he would always say that "i'm gonna see you soon"..

nainanaina on August 06, 2011:

Okay, so I met this guy on facebook but never added him. As he kept sending me friend requests again and again, i ended up sending him a message to stop. Some how we started talking for a few days. Later on he told me how he doesn't use facebook either and will be deactivating it soon and asked me to add him on msn as he was on from facebook for soo many days because of me. After talking to him he seemed like a nice and decent guy, i then thought of adding him. We talked on msn for almost a 8 months, and became such good friends in such a short period of time. He told me about himself, his family, friends, dislikes, likes etc...and so did I. Then he asked me if it was ok, if he could text me and asked me for my number and i then gave it to him. We texted eachother but never called. When he asked me for my number he also asked me if we could meet because he wanted to see me in real life [We just saw eachothers display pic and Never asked eachother to show their pics or asked to come on cam or anything like that. We are even in the same city and his house is like 5 mins drive from mine]. Anyways, we some how arranged a day and planned on spending some time together and before meeting me he asked me if it was ok if he could kiss me. When i asked why, he was like who wouldn't want to kiss you. I kept on making excuses on not to kiss him. I even told him i would only kiss one guy and that'll be the one whom i marry. I even told him i never kissed a guy before or let anyone and he was like i'll teach you. Lol that was really sweet i wish i could learn but then my ego kept telling my heart to say no. At first i thought of saying yes but then i just said it depends on the moment. I also told him we will meet but that will be the first and last time. After that we wont see eachother. (don't want to go into that) Soon we met he gave me a hug but i didn't let him kiss me. After that we still chatted and texted and he asked me if we could meet again but for some reason i had to go out of town, i told him if God wishes we'll meet again. Now since im in a different place he can't reply to my texts and he told me why and i completely understand why he can't. But even if i text him he replys on msn as we still talk there. So not to worry. But i'm confused, actually what happened that caused me to be confused was, [ever since i'm gone away he's been asking me when i'll be back like soo many times] Okay so what happened was we were talking the other day on msn and he asked me again when i'm coming and i told him when i'll be back. Then, i don't know he said something that caused me to ask him whether he misses me and we laughing and all and he was like i don't have an answer and im like why, just tell me whether u do or not. And then he's like u think whatever you want, what do u think. and i was like how am i suppose to know what if i say yes, and u say no. and he's like Lol i don't have an answer. and then i just said no with a sarcastic smile and he's like listen i have to go moms calling. and i said just tell me before u leave do u miss me or no and he's like idk ask urself lol. and i said okay but i want an answer next time we chat. And its been days i haven't got my answer and he's not even coming online. I don't know what's wrong, was my question stupid or does he not want to tell me. I know he's busy these days as he told me but why isn't he talking to me? we've been talking for almost 2 and a half yrs. if he doesn't miss me but then why did he kept asking me when i'll be back? What do u think? does he or he doesn't?

nicole on August 04, 2011:

Hi, I met someone online 2-3 months ago. We play an online game together on facebook. Started talking and he sent me a friend request. He wanted me to give him my number. But at the time I was not ready just to give it to him since we had just met. So I waited for little over a month to give it to him. Its just weird for me because I have never done the "online" thing lol. He has done all the things that you have listed. We have a lot in common too. His family lives in the same state as me. But he lives in TN. Whenever we talk its like we have know each other for a long time even though we have not. I don't know what think can you help me?

Crystal on January 06, 2011:

When I was seventeen I joined this online site for those who wanted to hook up. I met him there, and we hit it off instantly. We sent emails back and forth, but I figured that everyone did this on sites like that. Anyway, we both ended up quitting the site for our own reasons, and we began to talk on MSN messenger. Our conversations became more frequent, but we never touched on too personal of questions. I found it extremely easy to talk to him, and I felt like he actually listened to me unlike most of the guys that I know in real life. I don't know if this is how most guys act online, but I enjoyed the conversations regardless. About a year later I lost my internet, and the computer which had MSN messenger downloaded. A year or so later, I came back online, and added him to a new MSN messenger screen name where we picked up with our conversations once again.

At the time he lived several states away, even though when we first started talking he lived in the same city as me. Well, just recently I found out that he is moving back to the city that I live in. His family lives here, and he is going to stay with them, but it complicates things for me because I had started to get a crush on him over the last couple of months. I told myself that it wouldn't be too bad because he lived so far away, but now that he is moving back it makes it more difficult. It's very hard for me to tell if he only likes me as a good friend or if he could possibly be romantically interested in me. I feel like I'm not really his 'type', if that makes sense, due to the fact that I'm only twenty and he is twenty-eight. I'm nervous because I don't want to ruin our friendship, and assume that he likes me as more then a friend, but at the same time I don't want to push away subtle signs as friendship, and lose out on a great opportunity.

He normally talks to me within a few minutes of me signing on, and he uses smiley faces like he is happy to see me, but I don't know if he talks to a lot of girls like this or not. We have never met in person, but he asked me to hang out with him a lot when he was back for a week. He is back in the state he used to live in to tie things up, but when he gets back I'm planning on meeting him. I don't know what signs to look for, and I'm really nervous, but I'm sure that things will be fine. I'm in a complicated situation in where I like him as more then a friend, but I'm not sure if he feels the same way.. I'm sure that a lot of girls like him, too, so why would he be interested in me? Anyway, wish me luck, guys!

Private on November 28, 2010:

Ive known him for 2 years and we just clicked. We liked each other and when I came clean so did he.. We took a break for about 6 months and then came back. He introduced me to his friend And we all talk 24/7 :) I don't know what to think. I still like him ht as Learned the past he doesn't show his feelings easily...

kate on November 24, 2010:

I met this guy on a chatting site, and we've been chatting for about a year and a half now. It's not exactly a private site, we're in a chat room with a few other users. This chat room is about a topic that we all enjoy, it's a TV show. He hits on me a lot, and just today he got really jealous when I was joking around and told him I liked another guy (which I don't, I've liked him since January). The only negative things are that he uses a lot of sarcasm about me, flirts with two other girls that I hate, and we argue sometimes (calling each other names, insults etc). Last night he told me I was really hot (he's seen a picture of me), but I'm not sure he meant it, because he called another girl hot on a separate occasion. So, do you think he likes me?

Gita on November 24, 2010:

I met a guy on a (of all places) cybersex site and i specifically sought him out due to his looks. We hit it off (or so i thought) and he even introduced me to his brother and told me all about my family, even insisting i come live with him. Eventually I found out he was full of shit and even though I had stopped talking and cybering with other guys we continued to seek out other girls. I went to his brother and told him my problem and he was furious, he told me that he didn't deserve me and that it disgusted him to see me with him. And then he told me that he was the one who loved me and i realized that it was true. I am now dating the brother and have been for about six months now. He lives in Scotland, I in the US and I have yet to meet him.. Next summer he is coming here and I hope we get it all figured out. But it's hard being so separate constantly. And not too mention there's no garuntee i'm going to be madly in love with him when i meet him in person =/

kyerra on October 23, 2010:

am seeing this guy online that I really like. We met on IMVU. He always calls me baby or sexy. When I start to put myself don't he quickly disagrees with me. I've met a few of his friends online. When my computer stopped working twice, he still sent emails here and there asking was I okay. He asked about me sending a picture. I couldn't so he sent me a picture. No how long we are far apart we always ask if the other okay and am sorrys come flying out

The only problem is he is five years older then me and am just seventeen. We want to meet soon, but I don't know how to explain how I met him to my mom.


venus on October 10, 2010:

Hi there,I've recently joined an on line dating mainly Military men,the thing is I don't have any problems with receiving interests from the men and they all say I'm beautiful.The problem being I just met one man I really liked his nothing handsome,however I thought we had a connection he was taken by my photo's and we had been sending emails.With his comments of 'what I thought was developing into something more,then now I don't hear from him.His in his 40's for god sake 'grow up'! do these men like a women for a short time and then scan for other women with the thought pattern that I'll do until something better comes along? If I'm so popular and beautiful,then why is this happening to me,I've lost faith in these online dating services!

I'm so confused on October 09, 2010:

i met this guy at a club and he wanted to by me a drink but i said i wasn't interested but he still managed to slip me a napkin with his phone number on it. I then saw him buying a drink for someone i know but she was getting guys to buy her drinks all night long. I texted him a couple of days after and we started talking. We talked non-stop for the whole night and then three nights after that. i started to fall for him. i asked him if he still talked to the other girl and he said no (which was good). i really like him but im not sure if he likes me. I still feel bad for not letting him buy me a drink. I want to tell him i like him but the only way we can communicate is by text. Should i do it? If so how?

I met this guy online after posting a question about my husband now ex husband cheating on me. he emailed me that night saying he couldn't understand why he would cheat knowing i was waiting for him at home. needless to say we kept talking and thinks kept going on from there. i think im in love with him. he always makes time for me and checks his email constantly he even gave up early on his hobby fixing a car to actually talk to me and kept going in and out of his house to check and see if i responded , he has called me quite a few times and we sent pics. he seems like a good match for me but ofcourse i have my doubts. my cousin contacted him and he told her when she asked if he had a gf he told her that he was interested in me. we live far apart. need some inspiration could this work?

love a confused woman with her heart on her sleeve.

In your case Katherine, I would be a little concerned. If you recently met him, and he's already talking about sex, then be very careful. Most guys who truly liked someone would try not to offend you or give you reason to run. (Again, my guy didn't even attempt it until well over a year into our relationship...and he asked for permission first and applogized before hand if I didn't like what he asked.) Now, I'm not a guy, I am pretty sure about everything I just said. If I were you I would definitely be very concerned and uncomfortable with him and his sexual talk soo early on. Honestly, this does not sound like he even qualifies for potential husband. If you were me, you would take his application and throw it in the garbage. One also has to ponder how he is in real life.)

Katherine, I think it's normal. With my guy, I knew he got turned on a lot but he didn't make a big deal out of it. Then one time we were talking about something related to reproduction (but not sexual talk), and he got aroused for to say and he asked me for my permission to do something (cyber sex). I politely declined telling him I didn't feel right about it. (Note, this was over a year into our relationship!) He was ok with me not wanting to have cyber sex and he acted like a really polite gentleman about it and he didn't push it either. That was the first and last time he asked. I once asked him how often do guys think sexually~he responded by saying all the time if we are not busy. If the sexual stuff bothers you just tell him about it; if he truly likes you he will both understand and stop it.

jumper on October 02, 2010:

I met a guy online; not intentional on my part. We started out as just friends, then we talked more and we grew to the point of falling in love. Before this, I never understood why people dated online, vowed that I would never do so. But then he came along and changed my view, or at least I made a special exception for him because having him seemed better than not. He started to like me before I did him, I could tell before he even told me directly that he liked me. He would come online just for me, wait for me online. When we talked, we often talked for a long time and hated having to leave. He would sometimes leave me offline messages. Eventually he gave me a nickname, and then we came up with one for him. After knowing him a long time he asked for my number, I wasn't ready yet, he was ok with that and instead gave me his. I never called him. We still talked, then I started falling for him. I still hold back a little though as I know this is online and that if it doesn't work out that I won't be too badly damaged, but I hope for the best. We started talking about a future together. A few months later he gave me his address, and I did write him a letter. After he got it he wanted to write me a letter, but he didn't ask for it but implied it. I gave it to him. He then asked me for my phone number again, I gave it to him, but it didn't work. I showed him a picture of me; he seen it when I was offline and he left me a message telling me to come online and how happy he was. I eventually came online and we talked again. I waited the following weekend for him to come online, he never did. A week later (a full week of not talking to each other) he left me a message saying he misses me and asks when we could talk, I replied. We live in different countries so our time zons are different and hard to find time to talk, but weekends generally work well for both of us. The next weekend I wait for hom to come online, thinking that if he really wanted to talk to me he would, he never came online. Now, I don't know if he still likes me. His message of missing me confuses me now as I don't understand because I don't know why he doesn't come online during the weekend. (Past weekends I would come online when I woke up and it would be night time for him, so we both could easily talk.) Now, my heart is breaking and I don't know what to think. I don't want to miss out on a great guy but yet I can't keep living my live waiting for him to come online. I don't know if I should break things off or not (if I do it would only be because of the not talking much.)

Katherine on September 24, 2010:

I just recently met this guy online and he lives in a diff state then I do, bur we talk everyday until at least 2 in the morning . We always let each other know when we are going to class or going to do something. It's diff with him from other guys I have chat with online,he tells me how he wants an take me in dates and rush home just to talk to me. He always IM me good morning , we both stay on on IM in case we are thinking about each ogre and want to thing though is he likes to talk about sex a little too much lol. O mean he is a guy and have needs , us that normal though ?! I really like him and hope to continue chatting , we are talking about him coming down to see me during winter break. What do you guys think

laura on September 08, 2010:

there's guy i met on a social network two years ago

we used to chat for hours and all the things you mentioned happened word by word

i knew deep inside that he likes me

he also knew that i like him

im thinking of him all the time

but right now ... from about 3 monthes .. he started to get busy .. in work as he claimed

he's not online anymore .. he comes online every 2 weeks

but when we talk all the old feelings and things we shared come up again

he shows intrest in me .. he once told me i miss you .. he never said it before .. he also wanted us to meet .. and by the way he refers to me as if im him .. and vice versa .. as if we are one person .. he did it many times

but now i have a feeling that he's hiding something .. coz we were supposed to meet one month ago .. but we didn't .. im not seeing him online .. im wondering .. is he honest ? is he possibly commited to some1 new in his life and afraid to admit it ?

Still waiting for him... on September 08, 2010:

The guy m taking about.....we have been togeher as in chatting...just a week...but for 2 days he hasn't been coming online on yahoo..well he's my facebook friend too but i saw him on pretty soon in a while he was gone

The last time we chatted he was shaering his band's performance kinks and some other videos that had his voice,even though i did not ask for it...

I can't imagine why he has suddenly stopped contact,neither has he been replying to my offlyn messages on yahoo nor has he till now replied to the message i sent him on facebook yesterday...

I had asked him to let me know if he didn't want any further contact he shud let me know,but there has been absolutely no messages from one time he had promised he wouldn't leave just like that and i had told him I do't want that kinda promise ..just promise to say the truth...guess i had been very foolish in trusting him..but I am still hoping that he sends me at least a message..actually m hoping we get back to talking because i really miss him....

there is no way to tell him how fond i have become of him and how badly his behaviour is affeting my life and my health :(

Michelle on July 16, 2010:

I met a guy online a month ago and we really hit it off. We started talking on msn and texting each other whenever he had the time because he is busy with work. We met up a few times and had a lot of fun just talking to each other. I thought he was really into me because of his body languange and he would always want to hold hands and get a few kisses whenever he could. Last time we hung out was this Wednesday and we fooled around a bit more than usual in his car. But after I only received a few texts and he is making it seem like he doesn't get my texts but all my other friends are receiving my texts. I don't know what to do :(

Can you guys please give me advice because I really like this guy and it was the first time that I met up with a guy I met online

Someone on July 12, 2010:

I met a guy online 4 months ago in a chatting room, then we moved to msn. when we first met, he was on a leave so we spend like 2 - 3 hrs morning talking and like 2hrs afternoon. Now, when he get back to work, he made sure that he get into msn everyday. sometimes even just to tell me that he is busy and cant talk to me at work and he is going to talk with me when he reaches home. when we reach home after work, we spend like 2 hours talking. i always ask him when i am going to see hi next time and he promised me that he will do his best to get into msn and he does that most of teh time. We almost talk about everything home, work and life issues. He told me that he likes everyting about me and he knows that he is the kind of person that i dream of. Soemtimes i feel that he is really intreseted with me and he wants our relation to progress and sometimes i feel that i am just a friend of him. I really like him and love to talk with him. I really get upset when i am not talking to him and get afraid of losing him because i feel that he is teh perfect man for me. he really respect me and don't push me to do things that i don't like to do e.g sending my picture or my number like other men i met online. But this is sometimes make me feel that he is not intrested in me that much. Sometimes i feel that our relation is really great and sometimes i cant understand what he wants from me. I feel sometimes that i am pushing him a lot to progress in the relation. I really that we progress in teh relation.

I met a guy online and he was wonderful, charming etc. We met and all was good we dated for a while of 4 months THEN he ditched me as he wasn't after a relationship. He lied.

I am not dishearted though there is plenty of lovely guys out there :D

Alana on April 07, 2010:

My contention is that each of us has a a very valid and very varied opinion on love and consequently online dating. When someone is fond of you, intuition as opposed to a "stereotypical checklist" offers greater insight. I met a wonderful guy online recently; we've a lot in common but my intuition keeps nagging me...Let your life's lessons, intuition and self-respect navigate the course of your relationship....

So Confused on April 02, 2010:

This is not my first experience with online relationships but this one seems to be taking a hold on me.

I met this guy on wow over 2 years ago, at first I was kind of anxious to talk to him but now whenever I'm online we talk about something, usually it's stuff to do with real life, music, classes, etc. (We are both in University), and there have been many cases recently where we have talked on Ventrilo for hours until very late at night. He recently broke up with his girlfriend a few months ago, due to her wanting her to marry him, but now since then he's always talking to me and he even convinced me to get facebook so he could see my photo and so i could put a "face to a name". I'm not the prettiest girl out there so I was quite nervous about showing him my photo and he really didn't say much, so this is really making me anxious. At the same time he is still the sweetest guy and I recently went to a movie and he said he wished he was able to go with me.

The only problem is we both live in different countries but he's no too far away. I wish I knew how to make it more

Jean on March 26, 2010:

Um, practically everything your article said fits except for the "we" part. I'm not sure if I realy like this guy though but I know he realy likes me. I haven't gathered up the courage to show him a picture...not comfortable with that yet and the first meeting him part was something neither of us expected, not through a dating site or anything like that.

Broken deep inside on February 07, 2010:

There's this guy....

I used to talk to him all the time. We would both talk on msn for hours.... I really like him but the thing is, he's taken.. But his girlfriend is an online girlfriend.

We both met on New Years Eve. I was invited to a conversation, and decided to add him.. A couple of days went by, and we started talking a lot about things. We were getting really close... He said that I was flawless and amazing.. And said that any guy that went out with me, would be lucky. He even wrote a poem about me. I know his favourite songs, books, movies.. The fact that he's a terrible dancer.. His full name.. She'll never see him like I do... She'll never love like I do. I have a picture of him in my special box under my bed. Yeah, I know that sounds kinda creepy, but I love him so much, but he doesn't love me.... He'll never understand the pain I'm going through. I love a guy online, and it's slowly killing me. :/..

Danny_k on January 29, 2010:

hi.I met a guy recently on and we have A LOT in common,everything from views on life to family situations etc.We always finish each other`s sentences and i really really like him,i cant stop thinking about him, he`s also given me a nickname but the things is that he`s 7 yrs older than me i`m 19 and he`s 26 and he`s declared me as a good friend but i`m not sure whether he likes me as a friend or something more than that, he`s giving me mixed signals.He asks about my family,about the kind of music and movies i`m into, he`s attentive to what i say and he makes refrences to my profile in his messages.I`m really confused, i desperately want to know if he has feelings for me, he`s seen my pitures and he said i was "gorgeuos", he`s currently single and we spent all night after midnight talking to each other, we`ve been talking for more than a week now, i know that's a short period but we became friends instantaneuosly the first time we chatted.

But sometimes his actions make me think that he just thinks of me as a friend like he says bye buddy and you`re a great friend, but then he says things like if you were in my country guys would go crazy over you, you`re amazing and he`s called me sweety and sweetheart and darling several times.Please help me find out if he really has a thing for me.

Confuzzled on January 19, 2010:

I met a guy online, but I've talked to him in real life and my dad knows him. So, we've known each other for a long time, but I'm not sure if he likes me or if he just thinks of me as his best friend. The list that you gave here all applies to him. The thing is, I think he might've liked me when I didn't like him, and I steered myself into the 'friend zone' unknowingly. Now that he thinks of me as a friend (I think), I'm regretting that I didn't try flirting with him before. -_-' So, we're like best friends now, and I have no clue how to get it to be more...

complicated on August 31, 2009:

I met this guy at an online game site that my cousin introduce me to. he added me first as a friend, he was really shy but then we kind of started talking to each other almost everyday. I'm also friends with his cousin and best friend, they like me as well... whenever i have a bad day or when i'm feeling down, he would be so worried and ask me why. he calls me with a nickname as well and we have heaps in common. I've seen a picture of him and i think he seen a picture of me too. He would tell me the reason to why he couldn't go on. He remembers what my fave books, movies etc. and he would always cheer me up. He's only 3 months older than me, which isn't a lot. My friends all like him as well and think he's a perfect match for me. I really like him and he said that he really likes me too, he would try to change his schedule and he said that he feels like he could talk to me forever. I'm kinda jealous when other girls talk to him and he gets jealous as well when i talk to other guys. I want to meet him in person but the only problem is that we live in different countries. *sigh*

This is complicated. I've been playing SL and found someone who I've adored and we both talk out of the game on Skype. The thing is I'm married, He has a girlfriend and a son and we are infatuated with each other. I've cut off the connection between us because my marriage started to fall apart. An online relationship in a game can mentaly screw you up only If you don't know what your doing and only base the relationship on feelings, which aren't always true. The pain I feel inside from leaving him hurt like black tar was being poured on my heart. But it had to be done because I had to believe that my husband is my one and only even if I married @ 17yrs old.. Now five years later I'm thinking of leaving him, but that's not happening. So in the end, be careful for who fall in love with in a game, it will ruin any current relationship you have in real life.

xD on April 19, 2009:

i've been chatting with this guy for almost 4 years.. we became a lot closer and actually we're just 2 hrs apart. we send pictures of each other and he spends a lot of time chatting with me. i really like him and it seems that he also does. but, i'm not sure if he likes me just as a friend or if he's alright with me being a part of his "real life"

Bink on April 10, 2009:

Does this include second life too? I have a close guy friend on second life sending me hints about not wanting an sl relationship, then he spends all his time with me, builds stuff for me, and even gave me mod rights. I'm confused. This is my first online thing.
