I was recently having coffee with a friend of mine when we somehow got unto the subject of relationships. Since we've both been going through our own little psychodramas, i guess it was only fitting that we shared our issues. ( Yes fellas... we ladies get together and discuss "EVERYTHING". lolIn the middle of our discussion the question came up about internet relationships and also long distance relationships. Do they really work or is it just people getting together for a little harmless flirting? Some say that it's just a waste of time ... nothing will ever truly come of it, others say ... i met my "soul mate" online. Well ... i have issues with the whole soulmate deal but i'll leave that for a future blog . =)
While it is true that there are a few people who may find that special person through the internet. Let's face it ... a person is able to have a multitude of relationships going on at once online! Each person thinks that they're special, when in reality ... they're just a part of a well played game.
What is that saying ?
" Don't hate the player ... hate the game."
Well ... be that as it may. What happens to that particular person who opened their heart a little too much, only to find that it was all a lie and that she/he was only one of many?
What do you say to that person?
Is there anything you can say?
I don't think so because emotions become involved and the heart knows no bounds. It searches for that connection that will bring love. Sometimes it latches on to the promise of all those things that it seeks even when the instincts kick in and tries to give warnings. The heart usually overrides the red flag that is flying high! lol
Thus, the other person is usually left with hurt feelings, wondering how they could have allowed such a thing to happen. I think that only time can heal this type of thing. Eventually the hurt will fade and life goes on.
Sounds simplistic doesn't it ... it's not.
I now pose the question to all of you ...
What are your views on internet relationships?
Do you think that long distance relationships can work?
What Say Ye ?
