the online part kinda worried us a bit too, but were very careful to not attach to ppl until we meet them, some things you cant feel out through a text or a phone conversation. But after meeting a couple, we kinda wish it would just happen the old fashioned way too lol
I/we can relate to wanting someone to come back, that's just not going to come back, but it gets easier all the time.
Its good that you didn't rush into anything, & we found it helps a lot if everyone communicates well & is honest about how they feel & what they want.
You have a lot easier time getting what you want if you can ask for it.
All of this becomes even more true when you begin to talk about the sexual aspect of a relationship.
& Life is a journey... learn to enjoy the ride
