Your Call: Will This Online Fling Lead to Anything?

Share your advice for this reader in the comments section below…

Dear Em & Lo,

There is this guy I have been talking to online. Both of us feel that vibe in the air and we know we are so right for each other. He has girlfriend, but still he enjoys his time and shares his secrets with me. Ain’t this love?? The problem is, we are too far apart. He is in the US and I’m in the UK. We have been making online love, which I enjoy, I like being naked in front of the webcam for him… in fact, both of us do. But now I am starting to think this is not leading me anywhere. Should I ignore or continue?

1, he has a girlfriend so you need to step out of the picture.
2, being an ocean away puts the advantage in his hands to be anyone he wants over the internet
3, he’s using you for his own pornographic pleasure.

i wouldn’t call it love.

HE IS CHEATING! You are talking a JERK! You are also a homewrecker because he has a GIRLFRIEND! Do the right thing and end it. No doubt that karma will come back at you and bite you in the ass.


The great thing about online encounters is that you can be whoever you want. And just like in real life, there is a difference between who you want to be and who you actually are. What ‘works’ online, more often than not doesn’t translate into every day life. The internet is a great playground when it comes to living out fantasies and potentially meeting people with similar interests, but lady, it aint real. Consider yourself cyberporn for this guy, then consider him as your cyberporn. Comfortable with that, just that? Great, continue. If not. Go out and eat local.


Right for each other? Vibe in the air? What are you talking about!? You haven’t even met, silly goose!

Six months from now, one of your male friends will tell you, “Hey, nice webcam video you did, girl. Hot stuff.”


give up girl and find other guy who can love you alone. . that’s not love. Never allow someone to be your priority while you are just their option:(
