look up any word, like plopping:
 
1.
A real woman who meets a real man on the internet and forms an intimate or close communication based relationship via email, skype or text. They discuss as husband and wife but never meet.

The converse is true for a male as in e-husband.
e= electronic
I have an e-wife who I will meet this evening, as planned, on skype for intimate conversation, but we have never met.
