online relationship...but never met?

Can you help? I am conducting a study for my doctoral dissertation looking at characteristics of individuals who are involved in online romantic relationships with people they have never met face-to-face.

If you are involved in one of these online relationships, or have been involved in one, would you be so kind as to take my survey?

http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/survey-intro.zgi?p=WEB227TRXU5ZS2

This is a completely anonymous survey, and no data can be traced to any particular individual.

I appreciate any help you can give me in acquiring participants for this research! Please contact me with any questions you may have. I’d be happy to answer them.

Warmly,
Landi Turner

I'm going to visit my girlfriend in 10 days, for the first time since we've been together. I've visited her before, but that was only as friends. It wasn't until I returned from that trip that we both realized (or admitted, I suppose) that we had feelings for one another. We will be spending Valentine's Day together, and honestly, this is the first Valentine's Day I've ever been happy about. I cannot wait to see her, to hold her, to kiss her...to just be with her. It's been such a long time since I stared into those beautiful eyes, saw that warm smile first hand...this is going to be the best 3 days of my life, up until this point, I know it.

Do you have any children? Nope.
What is your political affiliation? Don't really have one...politics tend to bore me.
Do you practice a religion? If so, what, and how serious are you about it? I'm Roman Catholic, but honestly, I haven't been to church in years..
Are you satisfied with your existance right now? I wish that I were somewhere else, but soon I will be. I guess my existence is pretty alright.
Do you smoke? No.
Do you drink? No.
Do you practice recreational drugs? No.
How "out" are you? My family and close friends know. It's not something that I try to hide, but I don't go around advertising it either.
What is your favorite music? Rock, metal...mostly Evanescence, Within Temptation, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Antonamasia, Ebony Ark, Linkin Park, Matchbox Twenty...okay, a lot of stuff.
Any hobbies? reading, writing, singing, writing, listening to music, writing, martial arts, writing, watching movies, writing (as you can see, writing is my true passion in life)

Ah, man, distance can be hard.

My girlfriend and I are very much in love, but we live in different countries. (Hence my being in this community.)

Nights can be hard. I feel like I want her lying beside me. The stuffed rabbit she sent me through the mail helps a little; at least I have something to hold on to. She said this happens to her too, which makes me feel slightly better for not being the only one.

Nothing seems to be a suitable subsitute for the real thing. Pillows don't do anything but aggrevate the feeling, because the pillow doesn't have those beautiful curves, and neither does it have its own warmth.

Any ideas? Do any of you go through this?

Where do you live? Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Do you have any children? No, don't plan on having any either.
What is your political affiliation? Um...Liberal?
Do you practice a religion? If so, what, and how serious are you about it?  I'm Buddhist, technically, but I act more like an Athiest. For the peace of mind, not the worship.
Are you satisfied with your existance right now? Pretty much
Do you smoke? No, I enjoy my lungs the way they are.
Do you drink? No, I enjoy my liver too.
Do you practice recreational drugs? Psh no, I need my brain.

Describe yourself in six words.  Smart, funny, crazy, antisocial at times.
Do you have any tattoos or other body motification? Nope, nothing but my earrings and scars.
What is your favorite mode of travel? Car. Or walking...yeah, car.

What languages do you speak?  Let me see, English, and I can use a translator on everything else except Russian and other Slavic languages because I can't understand the letters.

Describe your perfect day. Wake up late, take a shower, toss on my clothes, play a few video games til 12, work on computer writing for a while, maybe head out downtown for a bit or to the mall to buy a few shirts or pieces of jewelry once I've been sitting for too long, come back home, feed and play with my cat and dogs, take a nap, wake up around 7, watch some television, listen to music until about 12am or so and then go to bed.
