Long Distance and Internet :
Internet-Only Relationships :
Don´t compare your Internet ´love´ to your real one
When you´re having trouble in your relationship, it´s REALLY easy to go on line and find someone who seems so much better, who understands you completely and is there to love you. The net is full of open arms and ready ears, to console and care.
There is no way you can compare this net experience with the real life one. Your real life partner is dealing with chores, timelines, cranky moods, negotiating goals, and much, much more. Your net partner is, from the comfort of his own home, feeding on the attention you give him, and getting the ´better part of everything.´
Also, by spending your time communicating with the on line person, you are spending less time working on your "real" relationship, so it will degrade, giving you more fuel to dislike the real and fantasize about the internet one.
Deal with your real relationship. Work to make it better, or accept that it is over and end it. If you ´keep your partner around´ while you neglect him and spend your time on an on line fan, you are cheating both yourself and your partner.
