I met my boyfriend through an online game. We'd ran across each other a few times in-game, mainly not getting any further then hi/bye/what's your goal/how's it going. Then he eventually joined the guild I was in, and we got the chance to talk a lot more.
Looking back now, I think the main attraction was we were both lonely and feeling trapped in our separate lives. We found each other both intelligent, funny, sweet but yet sarcastic. We didn't have a lot in common interest wise.
It wasn't the first attraction but the main attraction sexually. At least in speech, interests/desires we were perfectly aligned. So it eventually became phone sex/sexy ims. We got the chance, he came to meet me. We were on the same page if nothing happened, nothing happened so be it.
We hit it off very well sexually as we were both technically virgins at the time. He stayed with me around two weeks before Thanksgiving. We both wanted love in our lives so bad we thought we were in love. He next visited me at my parents house, stayed a week, our relationship seemed even deeper.
We ended up continuing our long distance relationship for several months. We even discussed living together after I graduated college, and me coming out there to find a job where he lived. About a month before I graduated, he broke up with me, stating he no longer loved me, how it was just we were so lonely and the sexual attraction ect. I mainly got the, oh let's just be friends. I was too hurt for a while to talk to him, tried talking to him, we just couldn't talk anymore, it was too awkward and painful.
I think had I lived closer to him, we could do friends with benefits, but long-term relationship/marriage, no. I do realize we are too different overall. I've tried reaching out to him a few times, he won't talk to me. It still hurts, I didn't love him the way he needed me to I assume, and neither did he, me. But I still wish we were on speaking terms-it would be nice to have a male friend in my life.
