The bright light of the computer screen illuminated Rosalie's face in the night as she read the post her boyfriend had just made on the small forum they chatted on. She grinned at it and her practiced fingers flew across the keyboard, quickly forming a reply post. Her and her boyfriend were in a unique position that was becoming more and more common: they met online, and they had never met face to face. Sure, they'd send pictures when they could, but those are not exactly guaranteed to be real. It was also easy to lie online, and Rose knew this. She used to believe she'd never let herself be sucked into the world of technology, but a night of drinking and desperation drug her onto the dating site on which she and her current partner had met on. Biting her lip, Rose sent another message. "Are we ever going to meet?" Rose hated putting him on the spot, but at the same time, 8 months seemed like more than long enough to try and meet. She wanted to know that this was real, and that she really was talking to a man she could be with.
