:x: person you were thinking of = my sweetie Joyce
:x: you believe in online dating = I'm sure it exists. I haven't had much luck with it myself. For me it works better to become aware of someone online but not date until we actually meet.

FOR OR AGAINST...
:x: long distance relationships = I'm not very good at them.

:x: of people you would classify as true friends, that you could trust with your life = That isn't my usual way of classifying friends, especially because I don't do absolute trust, so I'm thinking "trust to do what with my life, in what circumstances?"
