It depends, common interests etc. The 2 true online friendships did morph into a real friendship. One turned into an affair, encounter whatever.
Real life is like online however more guarded online. We are the same people, same desires except less
shielded in our anonymity. Our desires are out there, sorry.
When we meet in person it is a real thing, and a confirmation of our instincts - a rationalization maybe. Our souls are bared, so if the product meets the filters, sexuality does occur in my experience. That is we have already done the bar talk, let us play hide the wienie - both times wonderful.
CG - we wish for the best for you. The Doc also wishes you have a 100 condom week, with 3 days w/o. May you be ready for the back side, we were.
