Dear Carol

Is my online relationship a good idea?


 
I have an online boyfriend. He is sweet, nice, funny and loves me. I know why people worry, but I’ve heard his voice and seen him when we video-chat. I love him, but how do I explain this to my family and friends?
 

Dear Online Girlfriend,

Online relationships worry people for good reasons. After all, many cyber guys are creeps and criminals. Emotional safety is also an issue. You and this boy have no even held hands, but you say you love each other. Even though you like his emails, you have no idea how he treats his sibs or chooses his friends or acts in school. Plus, you’ll feel hurt if your virtual crush logs off to hang with someone else. Save the L-word for a real-time relationship.
