No Sense Pretending

I met her online. I guess that's just not a good way to meet people, you just know too little.

There's no sense pretending I've got anything other than a broken heart right now. It'll be a long time before I can be vulnerable to someone again. I'm resolved not to meet anyone online again, either - someone who I'm going to open up to needs to know a lot more about me before I'll believe any promises she might make - and likewise, of course. Getting caught off guard these last couple of times has been, I think, a big part of why it's been so hard to move past.

Even so, I should be able to move past it. I'm trying to figure that out - make sense of why it's so hard. In the mean time, my friends, forgive me if I'm down. It'll get better eventually.

I'm going to take a long time just doing my own things, and feeling normal, before I take another chance.

Don't give up on the Internet entirely! You just have to be as cautious online as you would have to be if you met someone in a coffee shop or at a club. I met my best friend online and we're getting married next year! However, I still think you need to implement a friends-screeing process. :P Or better yet, let your friends introduce you to their friends. But taking a long time to heal and feel normal before taking another chance sounds like a fine idea.

I hear you. It's just that.. when you meet someone online, sometimes they see the very best in you right away - but then get disappointed when they get to know you better.

Whereas, if you date someone whom you already know, they know your good points and your bad - and they've still decided they're interested. Less risky.

I've gotten too badly burned, too many times.
