I've pretended to be someone else on a website and somehow fooled this person into thinking I was real. I've started to really like him now and he likes me too.

We've been talking for almost a year now and he has helped me a lot and changed me so much, I don't know what I would do if he wasn't there anymore. I am angry at myself for lying and while he likes me, I am convinced it is because of the person I am pretending to be and not who I truly am.

It would change everything if I confessed and it is so hard because it would he would be so perfect for me because we are so alike and we understand each other. I know I'd be outraged if someone did that to me. I can't carry it on though, and I wanted to end it for ages because I didn't want it to get too far. But I'm so selfish and I'm continuing it even though it would never work out the way I wanted it to and the longer I contenue it the harder it will be for me but I like him so much.

Please can someone give me advice. I am so confused and I don't know what to do to end it, it hurts me so much. This was so difficult to write because I've hidden it for so long and I can see the absurdity behind this story but I wish it was easy to act on.

he would like you for your personality. He has a right to be angry but in the end he'd like you for who you are and thats the part thats actually real. Tell him

Also, being someone else online is a stupid thing to do
