No disrespect to the OP, but maybe the one who is being infantile is you!? the feedback results of meeting someone online IS NOT the same, and will never be as when meeting someone face to face in real life!
We humans are becoming so independent on technological communications, that we are letting ourselves to believe that IT is no different then, an extension of, or just the same as when meeting someone face to face!? and while this may well be true there are exceptions, thou!
The guy that I am currently dating I met online, on Okcupid to be exact! he was the one who first made contact then I responded back the same day. One response led to another and another and another, in the process we were exchanging a lot of long messages that turned very intense on both ends. I was quite aware that things were moving fast, waaaay too fast! but I went alone with it because he said, I said, things to each other that were strikingly similar and familiar to us both. Being the level headed person that I am, I knew that even thou things were moving too fast I also felt there were possibilities!?
I see love connections between two people much like tracing paper; one holds the original and the other the carbon copy. I am sure that my online date at the time thought that he held the original and I the carbon copy, while at my end I thought the contrary! but the day came when we exhausted our e-mail communications, but became mutually comfortable enough to make the next move: Phone conversations!! I was the one who made the first move and gave him my phone number to call, and within hours he did, surprisingly! I always felt from the way he expressed himself through the e-mails exchanges, that he was way too idealistic, young, and probably inexperienced even thou we seem to share a lot in common. The day he called me I was mesmerized to hear his voice, he sounded calm, cool, and collected; I was expecting a much more immature toned of voice, but I was wrong. So you see life is full of surprises, you just never know nor cannot judge through your own perceptions of things, much less of people until you get closer and closer to what is real and what is not.
Well just a few weeks ago we mutually decided it was time to meet in person! and went we did it was instant chemistry, why? I think because both of us were being true to our feelings all along from the very beginning! We both accepted our doubts, fears, suspicions, disappointments, joys, and even our differences as those little stepping Stones that lead us to be where we currently are. Neither one of us are complaining!!
The moral of this real life event is:
LEARN TO GIVE TIME MORE TIME! Jumping into one’s own conclusions is not going to help you enjoy for what surprises may lie ahead!
