This could get worryingly long, so I'll try and keep it simple and to the point. I’ve been speaking to this girl for about a week ago and after like our second 'chat' we both fell absolutely head over heels for each other. She lives a few hundred miles away but we speak via MSN, text messages, on the telephone and we’ve exchanged pictures. We haven’t even met yet, so I know you’re all going to think I’m a sad act, but I need help here guys. She’s talking about coming to visit me so I really don’t think it’s some fairy tale internet relationship. I’m off college at the moment and this leaves me a lot of time to be thinking about her - and, basically, she's driving me crazy. I can't stop thinking about her, but to the point that I'm just sitting here waiting for her to finish work by watching the clock, and I can't even concentrate on my very important college work. It's weird because as long as I've spoken to her once in the day, I'm fine, but the time leading up to her finishing work I'm just clock-watching and when she isn't in work, I'm thinking silly things about why she hasn’t phoned, text me or come online. I'm assuming it's because this is probably my first "girlfriend" (I say girlfriend because she’s been adamant that she’d like me to call her it) and I'm not used to coping with such intense feelings towards someone....and I'm only 18. However, I really REALLY need to cool down and stop getting so carried away, because if this girl pulled back and lost interest for some reason, I'd get hurt to a degree I never thought was possible. I know this seems weird, but I need some advice off some people with more experience with love than I am. With regards to the “love” thing, she’s had much more experience than me (she's 20) and she says it’s love at her end so I can only assume that what I’m feeling right now is love……Whatever it is, it’s knocking me sideways. Thank you.
