I have met some wonderful people via the internet. Most notably my ex, Deeds and my e-bff Cleo. I mean, Cleo was even there on one of the most important days in my life to date, my Graduation day. We've talk nearly every day (multiple times a day) and by now she is not any different than the rest of my good friends that I met from school/work/etc. Recently I began talking to Brownbelle, another blogger that I follow. I honestly don't even know how we came to follow each other's blogs but *shrug* we're working on being real friends vs. e friends as well.
Now...two of my friends from class have mentioned online dating. I guess its kind of the same thing, meeting someone online and getting to know them then transitioning that to a real life relationship. However I find myself completely averse to it. I thought maybe I was being a bit to harsh so I made a profile on a dating website, and not even 24 hours later removed it because it just annoyed me to think that I was in some way searching for him when I firmly believe that is not the way it should or will be. I guess I'm just old school. I like the idea of courtship and wooing. Is that so wrong? Am I a total hypocrite because I make friends online (haphazardly) but am completely unwilling to begin a relationship that way? Chalk it up, in some part, to experience. I want to be able to unplug from life and still feel connected to my SO. Even if it is contradictory, its what I want. But in case he is reading my favorite flowers are white lilies, I don't like candy, but I do love live music and scrabble...do what you will with that. :-)
