Last February I met an amazing woman online. We have been talking ever since, and we have met. On those occasions, we have been intimate. In many ways I feel I've found someone with whom I feel safe. However, I have always had many friends of the opposite sex. Recently, my best one, who lives locally, has been dealing with some personal issues. As a friend, I was spending time with her, babysitting for her and listening to her without the judgment she was receiving from her family. The problem is that I have been open about my friendships and what I do on a day-to-day basis. Now the woman I love is feeling betrayed, which has put a dent in my long-distance relationship with the woman I feel a complete love for.
