'I'm in love with a guy from the virtual world'

Apr 11, 2013, 23:57 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 23 and pursuing my Masters course. My family is from Delhi and I've been staying in Mumbai for the past two years.

I hope to find a research-related job and stay on in Mumbai. I recently came across a guy on social media who seems to be nice. We exchange messages on a daily basis. He’s from Mumbai and one of the reasons why I want to be in this city. I don’t have many friends here so he’s special. The only thing that’s troubling me is my decision to shift just for this one guy. Am I thinking way ahead of me? Or should I just keep this ‘special’ friendship restricted to the virtual world?

Dear Haya,
You are one confused soul. You came to Mumbai for studies and better career prospects. You did not relocate because of him. While here you came across him. So why are you harbouring thoughts that for this one guy you are doing so many things? And even if you were, so what? As it is you don’t have too many friends and then you come across a nice, caring guy... so why all this bother? Take each day as it comes. 

Diana will solve it!
