Well, I'm new to this community, but I need some advice about a possible/developing online relationship...
Just so you have a little bit of background information about me, my name is Sarah, and I'm a sophomore in college. My major is English, and I'm currently learning Japanese and Korean because I want to teach English in Japan and possibly live in Korea one day.
Anyway, enough about me. On to the part I need help with.
Since my college does not offer courses in Korean, one day I decided that I need a Korean penpal. So I went to the Rosetta Stone sharedtalk website to find one, and I found.. many heheh.
One I grew particularly fond of was a 21-year-old boy, and we talked for about two months via MSN and then talked for a few months using Skype voice chat [it's pretty much like talking on the phone] and eventually we exchanged phone numbers and started talking that way. We sent pictures of ourselves to each other, and I know for a fact that he's legit cause I've talked to his family members, too. I started crushing on him because he's extremely good-looking, very smart, and an all-around great guy, but I never told him because I didn't think it could ever work out.
Here's the predicament. He just joined the army about two weeks ago. Because he's not allowed to use the internet or his cell phone during basic training, we can't talk to each other for three whole months.
And on the last day we talked to each other, he finally confessed that he loved me. He even went so far as to say he would marry me one day...
Now, it drives me crazy not being able to talk to him. He'll be in the army for two years, so we won't be able to meet in person all that time, but he wants me to wait for him, to keep him as an option. Around the time he gets out of the army, I'll be graduating and moving to Japan, so it would really work out for us to date then because we'll be living so close to each other.
I'm so confused as to what to do. Should I keep liking him? Is it too early to tell if this can work out?
Please help me!!
If you've read this far, THANK YOU.
