Sana Klaric, 27, and husband Adnan, 32, from Zenica, poured out their hearts to each other over their marriage troubles, and both felt they had found their real soul mate.
The couple met on an online chat forum while he was at work and she in an internet cafe, and started chatting under the names Sweetie and Prince of Joy.
They eventually decided to meet up – but there was no happy ending when they realised what had happened.
Now they are both filing for divorce – with each accusing the other of being unfaithful.
Could you imagine the shock on their faces when they finally saw who it was they had been talking to all this time?
Sana said: “I thought I had found the love of my life. The way this Prince of Joy spoke to me, the things he wrote, the tenderness in every expression was
something I had never had in my marriage.
“It was amazing, we seemed to be stuck in the same kind of miserable
marriages – and how right that turned out to be.
“We arranged to meet outside a shop and both of us would be carrying a
single rose so we would know the other.
“When I saw my husband there with the rose and it dawned on me what had
happened I was shattered. I felt so betrayed. I was so angry.”
I find the whole thing a little comical but very sad at the same time.
It would seem that both of these people were projecting the person that they wanted to be rather than who they really were.
Could you imagine what a rich marriage they could have shared if they’d put the effort into becoming the people that they wanted to be rather than just pretending that’s who they were? They obviously both knew what the other person wanted in a relationship but they weren’t prepared to put in the effort to do the hard work with each other. How incredibly sad.
I suppose it goes to show how easy it is to be a different person online to the person we are in reality.
Would your family and friends recognise your online persona? Are you making every effort to become the person that everyone online thinks you already are?
