And aside from that, I really don't know if I want to be his 'friend' anymore. He's asking about my personal business of which I don't feel close enough to him to tell him about; he's always asking me to talk and tends to treat this like it's more than an online friendship; he talks about ### a lot; and we just do not have much in common besides our music taste. I don't know how to get it inside his head that we live separate lives and that this will never be anything more than an online friendship. I've tried giving him subtle hints, but he still doesn't get it.
I hate to just outright tell him because aside from all of those issues, he really is a nice guy. He gets dumped a lot by girls and not a lot of people on PSN (Play Station Network) want to hang out with him (quite frankly, he can be kind of annoying). He constantly tells me that this is the longest internet friendship that he's had and that I'm the only girl he's ever met who puts up with him. He keeps thanking me for it.
Honestly, I think he's becoming too attached. It seems like he thinks this will become more than just an internet friendship, but in all reality, I don't see that happening at all. I don't know how to tell him that. I'll still hang out with him most definitely, but I think sending that photo of myself crossed the line. It was something way out of my comfort zone and he pressured me into doing it. I'm not gonna lie, it scared me. I don't know what to do about it and I don't know how to tell him how I feel without hurting him... Any suggestions?
