I think there was more than adequate usage of "I" and "me" to emphasize that this is how LDR and online relationships feel like to redpepper. At no point did she generalize about all LDR relationships, or say that they're always flings and fantasy. What she said is that when she tries them, she is unable to develop that close bond required to make them more than flings.

Just pipping up that as a complete outsider, her statement was perfectly understood as being personal and subjective, not general and objective.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
