Sounds like she has a pattern of choosing guys who are long-distance or otherwise unavailable for an actual in-person relationship.

Consciously or unconsciously, she must be getting something out of it. It's certainly an easy thing to fall into because on-line or over text it is easy to present an "improved" version of yourself and also easy to fall for the "improved" version of someone else.

They had an emotional relationship(so I heard some athlete admitted to this and it was on espn news yesterday) but I do believe there is something wrong with that when you are expecting it and defining to be something more.
