I have a Internet best friend who is around 7 hours away from me we have known each other for around 9 months roughly and we are super close we message almost everyday and she has helped me through so much. For those thinking is she a catfish she is not since we video chat in daylight and I can clearly see her.
My internet best friend is like 8-10 hours away meeting her would be impossible although she is coming to where I live to visit some of her step dads family in the area where I live. I feel terrible for not telling my mom but I know she would kill me and probably never give me my phone back.
I feel like I need to wait till I’m probably like 16-18 to tell her but I’m just unsure. Her mom would kill her too if she knew she was talking to me. I really need her in my life it’s cruel really that she does not live by me I hate it truly that I have not known her longer.
I know some of her friends we have a few group chats and we get on well but there’s always a tiny bit of hurt not jealousy but hurt because I wish I could be having sleepovers ect.
My internet best friend is coming to visit around December and I don’t know if I should lie to my mom and meet her but I can’t tell her because I know how over protective she will be and I’m also a bit nervous of meeting her please give tips and opinions.
What should I do?
