You've heard the saying, "you can't love someone you've never met."
Well, can the same be said about missing someone? In today's society, internet dating is literally everything. I honestly don't even know if people meet the old fashioned way anymore. From dating apps to social media, the world is dating is right in the palm of your hands. All it really takes is a quick hello or a "like" to make sparks fly. We've seen it done before [see here] and in all honesty, I strongly believe that internet dating has become the norm. I would be flattered for someone to approach me out in public opposed to in my direct message box on Instagram, but than again -- it is 2015.
So, with that being said -- is it possible to miss someone you've never met. You're in the beginning stages of something great [at least you hope]. You talk daily whether it be text or via telephone. You have both grown feelings for one another over a couple of months, but you still haven't physically met. You both know what it is and what you want it to be, but the distance and the fact that you haven't seen each other in person is holding the two of you back from being great -- or is it?
You've been feeling this longing lately. You feel like you miss this person, but you question these feelings on several occasions because how can you miss someone you've never met? Then he randomly text you one day saying, "I know it may sound weird, but I miss you." Say what? The feeling is indeed mutual, but he beat you to it first.
He's that guy you've been searching for, but never found and you're that woman he's being longing for and finally came in contact with. Your paths didn't cross just because. There is indeed a bigger reason. Maybe what you're feeling is real. Maybe you two can truly miss one another despite the distance and the idea that you've only seen each other's faces via photograph.
Maybe. Maybe not.
Only time will tell.
