'My online pal is getting serious about me...'

Jul 05, 2014, 06:00 IST | Dear Diana

There is this girl I know, but we haven't met each other yet. We are online buddies.

Dear Diana,
There is this girl I know, but we haven't met each other yet. We are online buddies. We are comfortable with each other and keep chatting throughout the day. She gives enough hints to turn our friendship into something more, but I am reluctant as I do not want to disclose my identity. She has now sent me her snapshot and asked for mine. I reciprocated by sending her a friend's photo instead.

Dear Srinivas,
This girl has fallen for you, but you are taking her for a merry ride. She is serious about you while you seem to be in it for cheap thrills. It is clear that you are not interested in her and it was just time pass that you are indulging in online. You need to tell her the truth and send your real snapshot to her. Apologise for what you have done and make amends. If you are not interested in her, tell her so right now. Don't lead her on and then do a turnaround. You are looking for fun, but she is committed.

Dear Diana,
I have been in a relationship with a married women for the past one year. We love each other a lot. She is not happy with her husband due to his abusive nature. I can't marry her as my parents are against the relationship. She already has a seven-year-old son and she's six years older to me. I spoke to her about moving on, but she says now it has become a habit to meet me. She's told me she won't leave her hubby for me, but still wants to be with me.

Dear Raman,
There is no future in this relationship. She is indulging in an extra-marital affair, while you do not want to commit to her due to family opposition. It is better that you two go your separate ways than meet secretly. One day you will get caught and all hell will break loose.

Diana will solve it!
