(Of course I didn't expect long text messages from him at that point.I just wanted to know how he was doing.) No response!

After about another five minutes he wrote: "I better go. No "Good night" or "Talk to you soon" or anything like that on this night and not a single sign from him since then.

I wish I could talk all night, but family calls." I responded how much I had enjoyed talking to him that night and that I wished I could be there with him in this difficult time to comfort him. I already had a strange feeling that night when I didn't get a real goodbye from him, since he always used to wish me a good night before leaving.

One of the most important measures to date when dating online is to protect your privacy.
