Online Dating Experience 21
He Just Disappeared

50 year old female from Texas

I met "Matt" in January of 2004. He saw my profile on and contacted me first. We clicked immediately and it seemed we had so much in common. We would spend hours and hours online writing back and forth to each other. He began immediately to send me gifts, beautiful roses, chocolates, roses dipped in 24 kt. gold, jewelry, etc. Being a cautious woman, I even paid to run a background check on him and everything came back fine.

Matt was everything he said he was; successful, single and wealthy. Matt traveled a lot and even sent me a first-class ticket to Europe. I couldn't go at the time so I returned the ticket. We fell madly in love with each without ever having met in person. He would call me from Europe and we would talk trans-atlantically for six or seven hours. He shared with me his life and family and I did the same.

After four months of this, Matt got on a plane to the UK and simply disappeared. Despite emails, letters and phone calls, I've never heard from him again. This occurred at a time when my youngest daughter was a senior in high school and I was experiencing stress on my job. I nearly lost my mind. I was devastated when he disappeared. I fell for Matt as I had for no other man, including my ex-husband, father of my two daughters.

At first, I would see that Matt opened my messages and simply didn't reply (you can check status on AOL). After a while, he simply deleted my messages without even reading them. Even now, a year later, I still miss Matt and wonder if I will ever get closure without knowing what happened. Oddly, I don't hate Matt or even wish him harm. I know in my heart that what we shared was real and I know that he won't experience anything as profound with any other woman. I just want to know what happened.
