Why such title, you ask? I will explain. Imagine Eliza Bennett sitting by a computer, her mother’s voice in the distance This slow connection is so vexing! My poor nerves! Wonder what it would be like if she was chatting with Mr. Darcy, without meeting him prior to that. Whether the coldness of his character is still noticeable, even through the chatting line. That brings me to the title of this post. Internet relationships or, primarily, finding love online. I chose Jane Austen theme because I connect relationships with true chivalry. Jane Austen is always a repetitive theme whenever I blog about boys.
In my personal life, I’ve never heard of any of my friends finding love online. By that, I mean meeting online, meeting in person and then marriage. I don’t know anyone who found love that way, apart from just meeting someone on Facebook but not developing any kind of serious connection afterwards. There are just so many negative connotations around it. For example, MTV’s show Catfish that emphasizes the stigma of mystery, about people on the other side of the screen. But, like I said, I’ve never heard of anyone making deeper connection, after meeting online. Except for myself. I have met people online (over photography) whom I later got to know in person and became good, if not best, friends with. Shout out to Mirko and Marijana.
I spend a lot of my time online and meeting someone and interacting with other people is logical progress. But, what about love? Is it possible to meet someone over Twitter and then spend the next two months in daily chats? I think it is. Yes, we all have the liberty to lie and say what the other side wants to hear but what about when you hit it off from the very first moment? When it just feels right? When the other side is everything you want in a man; loves God, wants to live a chaste life before marriage, photography, blogging, understands your humor, appreciates rainy autumn over summer, twilight time of the day, when you have the same taste in books, movies, when you have the liberty to say anything that’s been bothering you, when he understands you completely and agrees, when you’re heading in the same direction in life, have the same goals. What do you do when you meet someone like that, but it happens to be online? You just can’t let go off such a person. When you write a list of things you want in a man and he has them all, or is likely to. When, for the first time in your life, you are not afraid, don’t have 1000 questions and reassurances. When you just don’t wonder if he’s gonna respect you, because you know he is. When you just know he wants Heaven for you. For the first time in your life, it feels right. Like two best friends reunited after a long time of separation. As if he is Sam to your Frodo, if you will.
Well, reader, I really did meet such a man. No, I am not naive. If you had a chance to get to know me, you would know I’m such a safe zone player who doesn’t do reckless things. Actually, how can you classify something as reckless when it is the most logical thing you’ve ever felt in life? I’ve known him since June 4th, 2014. Well, a few days longer but that’s the day we started talking. How do you go from here? The only solution is give everything into God’s hands, let Him lead your way, for both of our sake. The only thing I am certain of is that he wants to let God do His work, too. Until then, we will continue to have dreams, long talks about God, HTML codes, bay windows and rain. I will keep you posted. If you have any internet love stories, please, write them down. I would love to read it. God bless!
