“This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her”
“To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone’s sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating” – Manti Te’o statement released after Deadspin.com broke story.
