I know I’ve been dumb by doing this and continuing to do this, because I am just setting myself up to be hurt. I don’t understand why I seem to like him so much, but I do and it’s difficult and I’m not sure what to do.
I love talking to him, so much, but I don’t want myself to be hurt anymore. Should I just end it now?
Any help or advice would be hugely appreciated, I didn’t know who to come to about this, so hopefully this will work.
It's not dumb, you just need to be careful and always have in the back of your mind he might not be who he says he is.
Maybe, look at it like he's pen pal than anything else and don't give out too much information about yourself or send him any pics.
But you know nothing about him. “He” could be a 60 year old weirdo or any one of other cyber freak getting jollies talking to a young girl.
If he cant prove himself to you - in pictures and family life history and school discussions, then drop this relationship.
The internet is a wonderful gift, but many people have found ways to make it bad and scary. You need to be very careful. It might be better for you to make friends right where you are, people who you can see, people who are closer to your own age. 7 years may not sound like a lot of years, but this guy has already gone through many things that you need to see yet.
I'm 63 and I remember being 16. I wanted so much to have someone love me. I had good parents and loving brothers and sisters but I wanted more. Be patient. You have a life time ahead of you and I pray it's a good one!
Please though don't let your heart rule your head either, sadly in.the world we currently live in not everyone is who they appear to be, but if all you are doing is chatting online and you are happy to continue to do that then why not?
As long as you are safe that's the main thing , take care
