HHMM...DANG...NOW...i MUST tell you of MY experience...if i may?? in'03 &'04 i was the assistant manager of a site for Indigenous People. it was my job to post wisdom, tidbits and to operate the chatroom. one evening this young lady came in and we began chatting, i explained my duties to her and to my surprise, she started coming in every evening. one evening sometime later, we talked about our heritage and we exchanged pictures and what she said tickled me. she asked if we were twins !!! odd comment you say?? i thought so too but...i DID however LIKE it. i must add, that the very first evening, there was something familiar about this young lady but...at the time...i didn't know WHAT it was.

management of the site was poor so...the site folded...however...i still had(i'll call her Flower)Flower's contact on my computer. after we left the site, we got on with our lives and forgot each other, she went one direction and i...the other.

in April of'05 i was visiting family. as i sat there, i had a Vision. i KNEW who Flower WAS/IS.

when i was 5 years old, i began having a dream about a little girl who was my playmate. i kept having the exact same dream every night for 21 years. when i was 26, i made a rash, stupid decision and while following through, i heard a voice. it was Flower asking me NOT to follow my plan. i didn't and...that night had the dream again and you guessed it...the same face in the picture in the chatroom; was the same face i saw in the dream !!! these two occurences were 26 years apart and yes...i have looked for Flower for almost 52 years.

last Sept.14th i was having an ill day...not for myself but...for Flower. i took a chance and emailed her to ask if she were ok. i got an answer 2 days later...on the 14th...she almost choked to death !!! we have corresponded on the computer and phone every day since !!! and YES...we HAVE met. we ARE in love !!! so...it CAN happen...and YES...it DID to us...AND...we WILL MARRY having a Traditional Cherokee Ceremony.

Well, I don't think I would do it. 1. Person isn't telling you the truth. 2. Webcam isn't good ideas. (Person who may have friends joking around with you or others) Person isn't alone. 3.Someone is posing fake person which is dangerous. 4. Phone calls isn't good ideas and it is wasting time.

I agree with Mindy. The person is just as real to you as you are to them. Maybe they are worried about you as much as the other way round? Cyberspace is an alternate to real space. You have real friends in the real world and cyber friends in cyberspace.

I met my current boyfriend online via a free dating site. I used it hesitantly at the recommendation of a friend. After a couple of months all I was getting were either lewd emails on the site or ones with no personality. Then I met my boyfriend. He sent me an email that was neither lewd nor boring. It also showed he had actually read my profile. We continued talking through the sites email then moved onto our personal email accounts. After a month of emails and texting we started speaking on the phone. This went on for about a month. One day he announced he had bought a ticked to fly up to see me. Same state but being California it was still far away. When we met in person the connection we already felt was solidified! We moved in together after six months and a couple of weeks ago celebrated our one year anniversary! He and I were recently discussing this very topic and we both agree (of course we are a bit bias!) that online dating is quite ideal. Mainly because individuals are more inclined to get to know one another. This is especially true if there is a bit of distance. Plus, there is the added benefit of not meeting in a club or a bar where alcohol and possible outside influence from friends come into play. In our case we were on a site for dating. So, even though we took it slow we both knew the other was looking for something. Still, no matter how anyone finds a person to share their life with I wish them the best of luck. Love, true love, has really changed my life!
