Thought you would enjoy this NYT story about one of my online friends whom I met on a dating site. He and I had lots in common but lived 1,,200 miles apart so never connected in person. I ended up with post sm partner who lived in my town. Eight years later we are still happily together. My online friend ended up marrying a woman whom he met on OK Cupid and lived more than 3,000 miles from him. The NYT just wrote about their marriage. I’m happy for them and for me.
I am an incurable romantic and would far rather find Mr Wonderful in Timbuktu than Mr Okay conveniently around the corner. I am resilient, resourceful and patient, and I guess I need him to be these things too. Mr Wonderful is worth the trouble, and he needs to feel the same about me. I imagine it’s a great test of compatibility.
“cherish and delight in your spirit, and ask only that you be your authentic self; to witness, with total acceptance, the radiant, imperfect beauty of that self, of who you have been, and who you are today, and who you will become; and to be radically honest with you, with myself, and with others and to hear the truth you tell me.”

njsojourner: My advice to those Suffering: screw it! Literally. Everyone deserves a fulfilling sexual life. Get it however you can. Life is short. I have no illusions —when I get caught my wife will have to decide what’s most important to her. I am not stopping!

mirrororchid: I mention a few online chat rooms a few posts up, desertfather. Meetup.com provides real live people to chat with. Given your ILIASM situation, a lot of folks locate a therapist. (helpful for touchy subjects you can't go over with friends for over a year.
