An anonymous girl, lets call her Jen, is a junior in college attending school in Colorado. Like all college students, she is wrapped up in the partying and the wildness college life has to offer. Jen being the computer science major that she is does however have a lot of work to do on her computer so when she’s not out having a good time, she’s working her butt off designing computer programs and installing software.
One day, soon after she had a bad breakup with her boyfriend, who had left her for a tall blonde chick, she was home alone on a Friday night for the first time in the three years they had been dating. She was sad alone and depressed, so she decided to make update her Facebook page.
As a prank, Jen deleted all the pictures of herself and her boyfriend and replaced them with pictures of the girl that her boyfriend had left her. She even changed her screen name to Barbie, as a snide nickname for the girl who had helped ruin her relationship .
Pretty soon a bunch of new guys were friending her. One guy she accepted identified himself as Jeremy, and they started a private chat. Very quickly things got hot. Jen started getting into detail about what she would like to do to him with her tongue. He responded by telling her to picture being naked while his hands ran over every square inch of her body. Soon they were having cybersex. This went on for awhile, and then she got off the line agreeing to meet him back on the line the following night.
Saturday night rolls around, and Jen is on Facebook with Jeremy again. They become even closer this night, so they continue like this for a week. At the end of the week, they started talking about other things, and got into very intimate issues and feelings. They became close, exchanging their lives, Jen didn’t tell Jeremy she was in college, because she was afraid of sounding like an immature college girl. She felt guilty, but after a few weeks, she really liked this guy.
This went on the two of them like this for months, and months turned into a year. By the end of the year they had exchanged the most intimate thoughts, and yet had never even spoken on the phone. They were afraid of ruining the mystery. They had done everything sexually possible over the net, they were affectionate as well, waiting for the day that they could some day be together. They finally decided they had had enough. They wanted to meet each other, they were in love and they had to meet.
They didn’t care about age or looks or anything but each other. Jeremy told Jen he thought she could be his next wife. Jen was weary at first but decided she didn’t care how old he was or how ugly she loved him, he was the only one she could feel comfortable with. So…they planned a trip to meet in Vail, Colorado.
They were going to spend the weekend together and finally meet. Jen didn’t want the hassle of having to find him, so she said, why don’t you just get the room and we’ll meet in the room that way there will be no mistake. Jeremy agreed.
Jen showed up at the resort first, and checked into the room telling the desk lady to hold the key for the next party, so she went into the room. She wanted things to be special so she lit some candles, put on some music. she stripped naked and climbed into the bed under the covers, deciding to surprise Jeremy when he got there.
The time soon came. The lights were out, the mood was right, and she heard a key in the door, she heard someone walk in and around the corner, and she whispered, “Jeremy?”
Jeremy said, “Barbie?” (this was the false name she had given him.) Yes she said, so he fumbled for the light, and turned it on to see Jen on the bed naked before him.
Then next thing heard around the world were two blood curling screams. Jen covered herself up, and with her most humiliated voice said, “Dad?” and Jeremy said, “JEN!!!”
Think of what you would do in this situation. Now realize this really did happen. Their lives will never be the same.
Versions of this one has traveled through cyberspace many times. In spite of our best efforts, we couldn’t find anyone who would admit that this actually happened to them. This is a classic mistaken identity myth, combined with our fear of technology and incest thrown in. But a word to the wise, don’t pretend to be someone you are not. You (and one of your closest relatives) just might regret it.
