i came across this boy

Alexa
ph: Inès☆

I was on ChatRoulette one night, a website created to meet random people from all over the world and sometimes you'll find perverts showing off their private parts on the webcam but sometimes, you actually get to meet decent people, really decent people. And that was what happened to me.

I was on the website, had the cursor on the next button so I could just click instead of scrolling to find a next button if I were to come across with say a 40 year old pedo wanking in front of the webcam. To be honest, there were pretty a lot of normal guys I met on the website but most of them had trouble communicating in English and I got pretty bored so I pressed next, next, next... until I came across this boy, who looked decent enough but that wasn't what made me stay to talk to him, it was the set of drums at the back of him that got me intrigued.

So there we were, talking on ChatRoulette with the shitty connection and after what seemed like half an hour, we exchanged our Skype ids and continued our conversation on Skype. We talked just about everything. Our music taste, our perceptions of life, our jokes- we immediately clicked. We talked for about 5 hours before I headed to bed. Since that day onwards, we Skyped every single day for hours. I am 6 hours ahead so sleep had to be sacrificed and to be honest, it was worth it.

I showed him how my college looked like, brought him a tour around my campus. I showed him my house, my friends. We shop together online and show the things we bought. It was like he was here already but the most frustrating part is that, he isn't. How he could just stay there, spinning in his chair, juggling things to kill time while we were on Skype because I had to study for my finals. How I stole glances at him while I did my notes.

But then again, have you ever considered the slight possibility that it could be, fate? I mean, seeing him on ChatRoulette and if I pressed next, I probably would have missed the chance of feeling this way. If the connection was shitty and we didn't manage to exchange any information about one another, if I accidentally closed the website. Anything, I mean, what are the odds?

How is it possible that a boy who lives 6000... 6258.05 miles away to be exact, is able to give me the butterflies?

  1. Except for the part about the butterflies - this could be written by me.

    I met one of my now best friends on Chat Roulette 2,5 years ago. He's 5 years older than me and I live 6 hours ahead. Even though we clicked and we are each others "go-to" person. We've only met twice but it feels like we've known each other forever.

    In this situation you're really thankful for Skype, Facebook, Whatsapp etc!

  2. I've never "met" someone online.
    I think it's different when you actually meet someone, physical connection/approach is way better than via the screen of a pc.

  3. I met the love of my life online.. he's from the same country as me, but lived overseas. We skyped almost everyday for five months before he moved back home and we finally met.. It was very strange, meeting someone for the first time, but yet feeling like you're just reunited after spending a long time apart.. It didn't feel like the first time, but it sure felt very strange and special.. Very movie-like. I'm so happy I never gave up on him, even thought it sometimes seemed as he would never come "home".

    I absolutely believe it's fate, both what happend to you and me. You should meet this guy.

  4. The butterflies happen because love/friendship can overcome distance and you too work together. As friends and possibly as lovers. Long-distance relationships work at it can be more satisfying and special than a relationship that isn't long-distance.

    But it really is different when you meet that person physically. It can be in a negative and positive way.

    I don't know whether it was fate or not but I do know that you made a choice. I think that choices lead you to other choices and so on and all those choices will lead to the place you were destined to go to. But in your own way.

    I think true love exists, doesn't matter whether you find it online or physically (there are some boundries ofc).

  6. honestly, you are very lucky to have met this person that you admire and like, and online also, his kind is rare :)
    but you may need to actually meet this person face to face to actually get to know him better and experience it for real

  13. It's razy, but that's just how fate works.
    You see, I met one of my best friends just by chance;

    A friend made a chat and I entered.
    I realised that there was another girl beside this one friend & me in the chat.
    I didn't know her.
    We hit a issue by accident and then we talked for a long time.
    Know I know everything about her & she does obaut me.
    What would have been if ? That's what I'm asking myself often.
    I'm glad I met her. My very dear friend.

  14. i met my boyfriend on icq in 2007.

    and now in 2012, we are attached for 2 years now.

    ive flown over to see him in america in 2011

    and he came over to shanghai and i flew over to shanghai to meet him like just 2 weeks ago

    and its tough, like really tough. the trust issues and everything cannot be belittled in any way. the insecurity.

    but im happy that, i found him. because, i love him and i feel loved (:

    our friends and family all know about us now and respect our decisison.

    we're now both taking steps to finally be together - forever (:

    if you're really feeling it, why not close your eyes and take a leap of faith (; you'll never know until you try.

  17. I'm in love with an American I met on Chatroulette too, he recently told me he loved me too and I hope he comes to Australia ASAP! I think that these kinda relationships are the best because you truly get to know someone and it becomes so much more than a physical connection, and i know it seems so crazy but I cant also help but think thats its fate too...

  18. This could be my story, except that I came across this boy on Omegle, which works just like chatroulette except back then didn't have video chat. He lives in America, I in Germany.
    It was a leap of faith to just fly over and see him for the first time, after months of skyping, but it was the best thing I ever did.
    We've been dating for almost 3 years now and see each other whenever possibly. Of course it's not always easy, but so worth it. And even though it makes for the worst 'getting to know each other' story, I couldn't be happier. :)

  19. Awww, damn, how I love when these things happen! About 7 months ago I met a boy on tumblr, it was so random, I just clicked his icon from about 30.000 others, on a post, and saw that he's the same nationality as me but living in other country. I sent him a friendly greeting message and he replied, and after that we talked via tumblr for a couple weeks. We moved on skype recently, like a month ago, after some time that we haven't talked at all... We're now basically talking every other day, but as friends. I have a feeling about him though I can't pronounce myself in any way though, I'm just happy I got to know him and I do believe fate has something to do with this. I prefer, though, to take things as they come and go with the flow. He already planned a trip here (I'm 7 hours ahead) and he was actually pretty serious about moving back here. Damn, that puts a big smile on my face :).
