Ruined For Life?

I am a proud lesbian, and I have this mad crush on another woman. We met on the internet, and she does not live far from me. Although we have never met, we have had cyber sex numerous times. These have been the most incredible and most sensuous experiences of my life. We haven't spoken for about eight months now, and I have had countless possibilities with other women both on the internet and in person. The thing is, I can't be with anyone else. I fell madly in love with this woman back when we were speaking, but she will not talk to me as of yet despite my many instant messages to her. Am I ruined and cursed for life knowing how I feel about her and, because of that, I cannot even give another woman a chance?
