It takes awhile for our hearts to catch up with our head. I've definitely been there, meeting one time and then continuing and online romance isn't really much of a relationship. I would have to agree with SuperrMommyy - its more lust. When I went through this last year, I had to keep reminding myself of all the red flags. While I saw this person more often than once - it still wasn't right and I know I was just caught up in the emotion, the nice words, the attention and affection (even though it wasn't sincere). Our relationship was text messages and phone calls and I saw him on the weekends for about 8 weeks then that stopped it was text messages and phone calls until one day that just stopped. It took me a year to see him for who he really was, and it was a completely picture than what I believed he was. People can be many things when hiding through a computer or text. Hang in there it will get easier.
