    Not all people online lie, and not all people online believe everything they read. My now husband and I were gaming buddies online, talked on skype about very important things like killing orcs. Then it turned into talking about life, this went on for a few years. More we talked, we shared pictures, life stories, even family members talked off and on. Then we realize what we built in these years of being friends was something more special. Online took out the worry of "do I look good," "Is my makeup OK?" We got to know the real us, because we never lied. I woke up and realized I was in love with a man that I knew better than anyone, yet never laid eyes on. This went on for about a year, and then we met. We are now happily married. You can trust as many people online as you can a meat market bar. If you fall for it, you are part to blame!
