To any wisdmers left, I wanted to alert you to something.

Asked by hug_of_war (10725points) September 14th, 2014

I am bringing this up because I forgot this detail.

When I talked about my friend who killed himself, he was on wis.dm, and he also was a member here for a short time. His username was coreyd (unsurprisingly his name was corey). It was a long time ago so I doubt anyone would remember, but I just thought people might like to know.

I don’t recall his name from my life of Fluthering, but rest in peace, @coreyd.

Thanks to hearkat, here is his profile (the picture is me and him): http://www.fluther.com/users/Corey_D/

This is sad. He is not the only user we’ve lost to suicide.

His eyes have a look of peace in that picture. I think he appreciated you a lot. Keep that with you.

While checking his profile page, I found this:

Q: Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met in “real life” (only interact on the internet, phone)?

Answer from Coryd:

“Of course I can and I have. I agree with @BurrMiester86 if anything it is a more pure kind of love. I love my girlfriend (@hug_of_war of fluther) more than anything, even if we haven’t met in person yet. There are so much more important things than physical closeness. With any luck we will be together soon but I could continue the relationship like this as long as necessary. She knows me far better than anyone in ‘real life’ ever has and I know her in the same way.

“Our relationship may be different than most but that does not make it less real. What we have is real and very special and no one can tell me different.”

That is hearbreaking, @hug_of_war, I am so sorry. He seems like a really nice guy. Please accept my most sincere condolences.

Thanks for the consideration to follow up with this information.

So, how are you doing?

Oh no…...Yes, I remember him from Wis.dm. So sad.

I’m in thread on fb started by Kat in the Hat. It’s mostly picture comments. It’s SO like those old threads on wis.dm. Came across coreyd on our mutual friends list. It was sad.
