Am I just being impatient?

I don't know if I am impatient or not. I have a very good friend online who, a couple of months ago, said that when she changed all of her accounts, she would start writing back to me. That was in November. Since then, I have been trying to get in contact with her so that we can continue with our conversations online which I had grown really found of. I don't know if I'm impatient in waiting for her to get back to me or what, but I can't help thinking that she just forgot about me and doesn't care. Do I have a right to feel like I'm being pushed away when she says she is busy in real life, or am I just being impatient and getting all stressed out?

Have you ever met this girl in real life? If not, I really wouldn't worry about this at all. 'she' may be a 40 year old man, you never know. Online relationships, friendship or dating, shouldn't be taken seriously. People online can be encouraging and great to talk to but you should never need them, so to speak. You need friends you can talk to face to face for that. She probably is just busy with real life, which is more important. I wouldn't stress this over.

To tell you the honest truth, she posts here or so she has told me. I just wanted to know if I was a hindrence to her. I can't help feeling stressed out.

If you really feel that you 'click' with her, it sure can feel impatient to wait when you can chat again. I've one online friend with whom I've ended up to talk a lot about things.

Have you asked her how she is doing and told her that you feel that you're waiting discussions with her? The way she reacts for that tells a lot about it if she really is busy or if it's something else.

I guess that there aren't other ways but wait what will happen, forget her or contact her to say 'hi' and tell about how do you feel.

I've tried to ask her what is the matter but still no response. If she doesn't want to talk anymore that's fine but I don't want to be totally blocked out. I want her to tell me she doesn't want to talk to me anymore.

I guess that if you've already asked, there's no other options but wait or forget her.

Good luck with the thing tho.

Thanks. I guess I should just be grateful for the time that we did spend together.

My guess is that she doesn't want to continue with an online friendship, and instead of being mature and telling you, she's being a coward and figures you'll eventually get the hint.

Not sure why you're concerned about her, as it's obvious she doesn't give two hoots for your feelings.

Yes, I know who she is on here, and she posts frequently.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

But she doesn't seem to be the type to do that.
