Do you know who you are chatting with? part II

This is part two to a post that I did a few weeks ago.

When you are talking on line to someone, could you ever imagine them being even more than you thought they would be?

Would you think that they would devote every single minute they possibly could to your time together? Even if it were for weeks?

Could you imagine them paying for every single thing of your trip, because you mis-calculated and made lots of mistakes?

When everything that you touched during the trip turned to shit, they made it all ok?

Feed you, wined you and dined you?

Allowed you to see their world from their eyes, shared it all with you?

Taught you how to drive a car that in no way resembles a car you would drive in your real life (steering on the opposite side, driving on the opposite side of the road), and only yelling at you a few times, despite wringing of hands, and rubbing eyes in frustration and FRIGHT as you turn onto the motorway on the wrong side? And as a continutation to the driving thing, when you back the car into the "bumpy" side of the road, high centering it, and seeing the back wheels 2.5 feet in the air, just laughing? And even laughing when the farmer lifts the car up and brings it back to the road, the car slams into the tractor breaking out all the lights on the side of the car? Still, only laughing and taking pictures of it?

Driving to the far side of the country to visit others you have only met on line, and discovering they are lovely and wonderful, fun and sweet, and will be life long friends?

Could you ever imagine them showing you the most amazing and beautiful things you have ever seen in your life? Imagine walking along the beach, watching the waves crash on the walls of cliffs.

Can you imagine walking for hours up and down streets that have untold history, stopping at every pub along the way. Drinking strong drinks that warm your insides while the turf fire warms your out.

Talking about things you have only privately thought, never expecting someone will actually talk about them out loud.

Can you imagine visiting friends drinking and smoking till the wee hours, only to jump in the car and driving to the mountains to watch the sun come up over the water (but actually sleeping thru it lol)?

Can you imagine actually seeing the end of a rainbow with the same people that before you had only chatted with?

Can you imagine 14 days with the person that you have been chatting to, knowing that you have left something there that you will never have again, never find again, but having to leave it anyway? And feeling sweet ache of being happy to have left it.

Can you imagine that after flying for 15 hours and somehow losing 7 of them somewhere over the Atlantic, not being able to sleep until you can somehow tell them what that initial chat you had together came to mean to you?

Meeting one of the "queens" of the chat room, and discovering she is a real queen, a princess, lovely and kind and sweet.

Finally meeting someone you have shared lots of photos with, books, music and thoughts, and finding them to be even more interesting and wonderful than you could have imagined them to be?

Sometimes these chats become something that changes your life, changes the way you see things, changes you. These changes become an important part of who you are and who you become, they enrich you, and make you see the world in a way you had forgotten.

It happens, re-affirms that fact that there are some good people on here, and all we ever hear of are the horror stories.
