i've had an online relationship, but nothing as serious as yours.
if you're both in love with each other, than it's totally worth it. like my motto always says, "it's not about what's on the outside. it's about what's on the in." i'm sure, if anything, your opinion should count the most [but you probably know that already]. i'm glad you're looking for 2nd opinions, though, about this matter. go for it! ^____^
