This person needs therapy, not a romantic relationship with anyone -- especially someone she's never met (?).

So many issues need urgent attention here...

Yet she claims they went to couples therapy? I understand telemedicine, and it's great, but how did any trained therapist look at her and him, and their situation, and not gently suggest observing the container ship full of red flags in port?! Just turn off the internet and she's free of his nonsense!

Yeah, I read somewhere that more and more therapists these days end up reminding themselves to ask the client whether the client has actually ever met their significant other. Relationships lived out almost entirely in the imagination (with texts and occasional video calls as only forms of contact) have become pretty common. I don't know if it's that I'm old but I don't get how people go on so long without meeting the other person.
