you bring up a good point I forgot to mention. People can lie about who they
are. This is online period. I met my bf online and it was much better for us
when we met in person, he was exactly who he said he was, but be careful.
Not everyone can be this way.
I didn't meet him off a dating site either.
"Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away; and all the things I want to
say can find no voice. Then, in silence, I can only hope my eyes will speak
"For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there
is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to
Find that guy that will pick up every piece of your shattered heart & put it
back together; Replacing it with a piece of his.
