Hopefully, I can sell this car. If I could just make a few K, I would leave after my summer class. Here is the thing and maybe you all could tell me what you think. I have met a guy online. Crazy, right??? We have been talking since December. I can not believe how much I have fallen for him. We even talk about marriage. I never ever thought I could feel this way about a guy I have never met in person. I have webcammed with good looking guys in the past, but there never was a connection like with him. As all my real life relationships have failed, he has been the only consistent thing..He tells me that if I go there, I can stay in his home with him and his family. He is only 3 years older than me. My original plan was to go there and stay in a hotel with my mother, see what he is about, and if he is genuine, I return alone. However, I have told my mother about him and she doesn't really support it so I am afraid if she were to come with me, she would embarrass me and then there will never be a chance that this relationship will progress. She is open to taking a vacation for a week or two to meet him, but she has made it clear that I have no future with him... This has nothing to do with him personally, but more with my mother's elitism. Here is my plan: I want to try and make some money over the next few weeks. I have two cars that I can sell. Hopefully, somebody buys them. If not, I am just going to take money out of my savings. This money will be spent not only for my trip, but for me to buy some nice stuff for myself to feel better and more confident before I meet him. You know? Clothes, shoes, beauty products, new luggage. BTW- He is in a European country. I figure I will go to my home in Italy first... Then, go there without telling anybody. Call my mother once I arrive and she will have to accept it. I am 22 not 16. I deserve to be happy for once. Still, there is soooo much uncertainty. What if he is a jerk in person? What if I waste all this money for nothing. Him and I already have a sort of hot and cold relationship. Basically, we play games sometimes. IDK. I just like him so much and he has told me that he wants the same stuff as me...Love, family, marriage. He has even said that he will be ready to marry me on the day I arrive. Of course, I don't think I would be open to that., but if we really hit it off after a week or so, why not? We have been talking for so long anyway and unlike real life, I have told him things that I could not tell a guy face to face..... What do you guys think I should do?????
