The funniest thing I've heard of is still an online proposal, based on a weeklong online-only relationship, of course. Obviously such people have serious problems in RL.
"Show me how you do that trick! The one that makes me scream", she said,
"the one that makes me laugh!" she said and threw her arms around my neck.
"Show me how you do it and I promise you, I promise that
I'll run away with you, I'll run away with you..."

My "online romance" works well enough. I have been with my girlfriend for more than two years. I see her on Christmas and in the summer time. Summers I usually stay for a month and for a week during Christmas time.

I've met up with quite a few people I first knew online, typically from various MUDs (anyone play those anymore?).  I count a number of them as close friends still, and did end up falling in love with someone I first met over the 'net.  We've been together for almost four years now, and living together for three and a half.  I knew him for a good four or five years before that as an online friend, however, so we had a good deal of time to make sure that this relationship really was what we wanted.  I do wish I'd been single the first time I met him in person instead of living with this other girl that I'd met off the net..she turned out to be a touch on the loony side, something I unfortunately didn't see until we were out of our 'honeymoon' phase, if you will. :P

So yeah, meeting friends from internet communities is all well and good, but as far as romance goes, I think the ones that end up withstanding the test of time will have a very solid basis in friendship beforehand, much like most other more conventional successful romances.

He needs to jerk off more often than he may be a happy camper.

If 22 hours a day isn't enough, I don't know what to tell you.

Plenty. Ever played Daedal Macabre? It has ruined me on pretty anything else, even though it has gone down hill a lot in the past few years.

  I know that I'm not allowed to address the guy, but can anyone correct him? It's 24 hours/day, not 22. So he must be losing 2 hours/day. Makes 730/year, kinda 15,000 hours/20 years. A whole lot of time to do what pleases you most, more often
  Dumb crap, as usual, I knows. Should log in not so often, but had hoped to find some new stuff on WEIDU. Sorry

All that self-pleasuring would take a lot out of a man, wouldn't it?
