Q: Falling in Love With an Idea?

Q: Well,it all started when a stranger texted me.He texted,”Hey,would you mind meeting me at 4 instead of 3? I have to make a detour”and I was bored so i replied (not the best idea I know),you got the wrong number,and somehow we started talking, and my friends met him, but she wont tell me what he looks like. We’re the same age and everything. So my problem is: do you think its possible to fall in love with the idea of a person? A: Absolutely. It's easy to fall in love with an idea, but much, much harder to fall in love with a real person sometimes. Ideas don't really have flaws, besides what you allow them to have, but real people do, and not everyone is ready to accept that. That all being said, it's getting more and more normal to only talk to someone online, through texting, or whatever before you meet them in person. Safety issues aside (seriously, be smart about any of this! Take a friend. Or have a friend near by. Or meet somewhere VERY public. The usual stuff), there are other things you have to consider, though. One recommendation I have is to meet in person SOONER rather than LATER! While it is nice to be able to form judgments and ideas of each other even before arranging a meeting, the more an idea of who that person is forms in text form, the harder it will be to actually get to know that person as they really are, and that could be a hugggge problem! So, my advice to you, is to meet them soon. And tell your friend before you do because if he's completely not worth meeting (or scary!) she should be a good friend and warn you. Good luck!
@hikaymm Totally agree! There's a line that has to be carefully walked. @onesmile I mean, don't you want people to trust you online? Aren't there people you should trust online, too?
@noelia98 As in, they should go for it?
it's perfect
This seems dangerous from start to finish....I'm all about the real connection leading the relationship from in person meeting to in person dates....guess I've never been into buildilng realtionships over devices! Just my two cents, though.
Oh ho ho, trust me, I know this danger zone!!! I've made the mistake even of texting a TON with someone I met once in person after wards, only to meet again expecting sparks and zilch! Nothing! Be careful. Texting and other online communication is great, but really does have some drawbacks.

Last-Minute Gifting Ideas
Brainstorming for some special gifts for your loved ones can be difficult at times especially if it's very last minute! There come many occasions where we are bound to gift our loved ones or our partners but we run out of ideas or there is so little time left. This article might turn out to be useful for you and give some inspiration to pick out some last-minute gifts for your loved ones. 1) Perfume I know it is a very common gift but it is a no-brainer and actually a very useful gift. You’ve got to make sure that it is a fragrance which is suitable for all occasions and mostly everywhere they go. The fragrance should at least last 8 to 10 hours. You can select from the wide range of perfume choices from this amazing alternative to eBay. 2) Personalized Cuff Links Giving something personalized adds a little personal touch to it which makes the gift all the more meaningful. There are various websites that design personalized cuff links with initials on them. I understand that getting something personalized is not possible last minute but you can always look for other designs across the web too. 3) Electronic Gadgets Gifting gadgets is a really cool option as well. If you specifically know what the other person wants then you can go for that as well. If they are into PlayStation or video games, you can gift them a PS5 if you have your budget. It would be a really cool gifting option. 4) Airpods or Headphones If your loved ones are really into music or love to have some music while working out or doing some chores, this would be the best gift for them. You would find various color options and models, make sure you choose the best one! 5) Kindle If your loved ones are into reading books a lot, this would be the perfect option for them. Most of the time, book lovers get short of space to store their books. In such cases, Kindle comes much handy. It takes minimal space and stores a maximum number of books. 6) Coffee Machine There are so many people who are immense coffee lovers. But it gets difficult to spend money each time they need to drink coffee or spend so much time beating it to get it ready. In such cases, gift them a coffee machine and they would be the happiest people on this planet. 7) Chocolates and Flowers Now I know it is a very easy-peasy option but for the last minute, it can do wonders and you can never go wrong with it. Because ultimately it is the thought process and feelings behind it that counts, isn’t it? So pick out their favorite chocolates and a super elegant flower arrangement and you’re good to go. 8) Watch I personally really like watches. If your loved one is a watch person or if they don’t have any watches yet, you can help them build a watch collection. So, this is a great idea too. You can find a wide variety of watches online as well as from your nearby shops. These were some last-minute options that would never go wrong. I really hope I came out as a help to you in finding a perfect gift for your loved ones last minute. So, get some amazing gifts for them!
