Long before a nursing student named Sunny discovered that a high school girl was pretending to be Jameson, her Internet-boyfriend, on the premiere of MTV’s "Catfish," the show’s creator, Nev Schulman, was the victim of his own tale of online deceit. A middle-aged woman named Angela posed as Nev’s crush, Megan, in the show’s namesake documentary. And despite the heartbreak he incurred after finally meeting her, Nev says that he and Angela still keep in touch, in the video below.

"Angela and I went through a lot together," he says in the clip. "And our lives will forever be connected." No, Nev and Angela don’t have a weekly lunch date, and there’s no buddy-buddy sitcom in the works, but Nev says he and his own "Catfish" exchange holiday cards–and even birthday gifts–by mail. "It’s a pleasure to still be in touch," he says, and adds that he’s always just a call away if Angela needs him.

+ Are you surprised to hear that Nev and Angela remained friends? Is he right to keep communication open, or should he leave her in his rear view mirror? Let us know what you think!
