@GuardianWynn and @Nicoel So, as some of you guys may have noticed, GuardianWynn and I have been talking for a really long time now. <coughs> our profile statuses <coughs> So, this past weekend we finally made the step to spend the weekend together. GuardianWynn: Hi, she is amazing lol, true though. We don't live very close to each other, so seeing each other for the entire weekend has been a tricky plan to make. Yet, we have been a couple for several months all the same. Brought together by our love of common interests, cough, digimon, cough. lol. In all seriousness, this forum brought us together and that has been a wonderful thing. Nicoel wanted to do this so now I am going to put her on the spot and randomly kiss her and toss the computer at her to continue this post...... Nicoel: He actually did kiss me and hand me the keyboard... He's pretty good at it too. And he's taking th eslkdjf ls,;jkfd GuardianWynn: She isn't sure what to say. I think the topic here (beyond possibly bragging) is about how this is an interesting topic, the modern age and how love is possible in ways it wouldn't have been dreamed of before. Or at least, not as realistically. A lot of people gave me crap at first, as if, touching her hand is a requirement before love can even be mentioned. <GuardianWynn steps off of soapbox> Nicoel: It reminds me of a quote I once heard, "What if you told your friends, "NO I HAVEN'T TOUCHED YOU YET. WE CAN'T BE FRIENDS!" It sounds weird in that context, right? I understand the dangers of internet privacy, and of people not being who they say they are. It's not always about trust, but also about common sense. And hey, it can work out sometimes. GuardianWynn: Well, hell, her above line (yes we are in person pantser's right now) implies that internet friendship is more dangerous than the traditional. Which ironically, I too fall into the pit of failing to use real logic. I can feel that gut feeling too, yet think about it. Internet provides security that you can't even imagine in person. Cough, people that met in bars for the first time, cough. It also reminds me of violent video games, in the sense that people again think the new is somehow worse for being new when for years kids have gotten hurt way worse in real sports and there are tons more real violence in them. <Nicoel steals soapbox and GuardianWynn trips and falls on face.> Nicoel: The best thing about being in person now? I can finally kiss his broken nose ^.^ Really though. I'm not sure what else to say on the subject, except thank you to the forum for existing. And don't be so critical of love.
