Requiem for An Internet Boyfriend

[sniff sniff]

I’m sad to report that My Internet Boyfriend is no more. I would link you up, but he has taken down his WordPress blog.

The Internet is a wonderful place where you can meet people. They become your friends in Cyber Life, and sometimes if you’re lucky, in Real Life. I am lucky to have made a good friend in MIB.

I wish I could tell you a juicy tale of how we fought and broke up. That’s not the case. I still like MIB. In fact, we email regularly, although not so regularly these days. That’s because it’s summer time and he has obligations. I have obligations. In fact, I am totally amazed that I even have ten minutes of time to devote to this blog. If you saw my plate, you’d know that it was piled over with things to do. I have so much stuff on my plate, I’m not sure what china pattern is under there.

I wish I could tell you that he died. Well, he didn’t die, really. He died an Internet death, which means he has gone to a better place. NO! Really! I myself have committed web suicide. It was from another site that had a bunch of weirdos in it (some of whom are over here… ha ha ha…) and was time sucking. I made a boatload of cash from the place but it was unsatisfying. I planned my G suicide with panache and style. I don’t miss the place though. I’ve gone on to better things.

Anyway, some of you have been asking me what has happened to MIB. He’s around, but he’s not around.

Since he’s not around, I thought I would take this opportunity to detach myself from him. Only online though.

Now that I’m single again, I think I will take the time to mourn my loss. If any of you would like to add any words of encouragement, please feel free to do so. Or, if you would like to leave a touching eulogy for My Internet Boyfriend, I’m sure he would appreciate your sentiment. Perhaps someone can tape themselves singing “Oh Canada!” and post it here. (Oh. I think I did that before.)

Rest In Peace, Internet Boyfriend.

  1. Bongo killed his blog? WTF? Is he still on Facebook?

  2. Pan, your IB gives new definition to the concept of unique. I am very glad that he’s not actually dead, and thrilled to pieces that whatever time he has to roam around will be spent playing on other people’s blogs.

  3. Yes, he’s long been dead. I have been in mourning too for a while for him. However, his spirit lives on.

  4. I found your blog through your Internet Boyfriend’s blog, so I shall be eternally grateful to him, wherever his spirit currently wanders.

  5. Yup, Bongo is still on Facebook. He likes it more than here. I don’t mind Facebook, but I find it a time sucking web site, so I try to limit my time there. Currently, I am playing Scrabulous with my son, his girlfriend and a couple of others.

    MIB right now is not far away from me in the flesh. But I don’t think I will actually see him this weekend. Maybe… you never know.

  6. I wondered what happened to him. I’ve noticed his absence. Do you think he might actually make an appearance this weekend? I know we initially chose this weekend because he would have a little closer proximity than usual, then he disappeared from the threads.

    If he’s going to show up, make sure you warn him that I’m really fat, now. 😦

  7. We can be the chubby sistas, Ina. I don’t think he would drive to your house. It’s too far. He has intimated that I should meet him halfway.

  8. I’ve gotta find you guys on Facebook. Or you can find me. I’m not going there until later, because I’m at work.

  9. I’m pretty easy to find. I use my real name.

  10. Give him my best when you email him, Pan.

  11. It’s the end of an era. *respectful doffing of hat*

  12. I have an internet bf too, and i have been thinking of breaking up, not because i dont love him anymore, i love him more than you can imagine…
    but i think its not fair for him, he lives in england and i in texas, we wont meet until a couple of years, and he says he will wait, but i think he could be happier with someone else over there, someone that can kiss him and hug him… im so confused, i dont know if i should break up with him…
    and if i do, will we still be friends? i dont want to lose him, at least not totally, so i was thinking, maybe i should break up with him, and if we still feel something for each other we can start dateing again.. i dont think im good enough for him, but he says i am. but then we havent met each other, so maybe when he meets me he’ll think different, and all this time he could have found someone he really likes and that can make him happy… can someone give me an advise? please i really need it
