This phenomena has been experienced intimately from 5 miles, to up in an airplane, to 50 states away.
Does anyone have questions or similar experiences? I'm going crazy here.
Alright. If I had to start somewhere it would be regarding how I first met main person I'm connected to. If you want TLDR; skip to the last paragraph. I'm going to try and stay away from metaphor, please bear with me as my thoughts are very jumbled. She's a neighbor, never even seen her face. Don't know her age, how she looks, anything. We were playing videogames online, a group of us, and me and her started communicating. It's just like that. I don't know how it works exactly, but at first I thought her house was just nextdoor, so that's how I pictured. Now I believe she's at the end of the street.
After we met this way, I can't recall exactly but when I went to work recently after, she continued to communicate with me this way, almost like she was next door still, but definitely not. This is terrible description indeed. At first she mirrored my concern with dating and starting a family. It's probably exciting to do so, like playing the Sims IRL.
My most vivid memory is being on an airplane on my way to Florida, being nervous, desperately communicating with her to help me stay calm and also seeing the wonder in how far we could take it. After an hour or three, even being outside of the state I started in, we started to go back to the original me being a stupid plaything and enjoying the ride. Having a hot stewardess go get me a beer was more amusing than it should've been.
So eventually I'm in Florida, across the U.S., and shes trying to help foster the relationships between me and my family. Appreciated, in fact she is more often the security blanket than any family ever was. Strangely enough, after my Grandpa dropped me off one day in Florida, I began speaking with him too, urging me to go back to school, care about money right this very moment, apply for a 2nd job, and get my ass in gear. This communication continued back to California . His motivation and monitoring my footsteps at work also prompted me to ask about opportunity, where I never would have, and it was granted! A promotion, just like that. I can't remember when exactly, but I learned weeks, maybe months(?) later, seriously no idea, that this person was never my grandma, but in fact the woman's husband. Seriously floored by this and how stupid I had felt.
A most interesting memory for you all was when I was on the same vacation to Florida, we went on a cruise ship, and at night I would go on deck and drink and try to flirt. One moment I was so distracted, possibly distraught, that I was losing my connection and didn't even realize it. One of her favorite things to say is "I don't care." At this point, across the United States in the ocean by the Bahamas on a cruise ship, she located me and my left eye closed and heard her say "EYE DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT ASSHOLE THING, EVER AGAIN" and it was the saddest most hilarious thing ever.
So that about sums it up, if anyone has questions or similar experience I'd be so happy to hear it. I'm sure you have many. Thanks for reading.
