I know a few couples who have met online. They're quite happy being together. I guess it just depends on the people you meet.

I think that the internet is a fabulous medium to get to know someone. Without the physicality of the relationship getting in the way, there is nothing but pure communication. If you can sustain a relationship for an extended period of time with someone without involving sex, then you have a much better chance of making that relationship work in real life. Chemistry is vital, I will admit that, but sometimes (often) physical attraction outweighs compatibility in other areas, and when the physical becomes less obsessive, you discover that you truly have nothing in common. With an internet relationship, you know ahead of time that you can talk openly.

it could be possible. I mean, there are sooo many online dating sites who are VERY successfull with their cilents. I think when people are communicating online rather than physcially, they see that person as who they truly are & not the phsycial aspects of them 1st. They see from the inside out, rather than what's on the outside first.

agreed.
It's gonna be easier for some people than others, but it's still a lot of work for anyone, and if there's no physical interaction at all...well that's gonna be impossible.

Meaning that a relationship = sex is involved as soon as possible?
For all those people for which that's true, I agree with the you on this, for people like me, to whom it is not applicable, I think the distance is only going to breed problems, because if you really don't know what you're having a relationship with, how do you know they aren't misrepresenting themselves?

I, also, don't need sex to have a good relationship.

It's very hard for someone to maintain a facade for an extended length of time (I mean months), because it's very hard to keep the lies straight. Some people can do it, I'll admit, and anyone entering an online relationship should be aware of the dangers. That said, most people are honest. My experience with meeting people on-line (whether they are casual friends, good friends, or romantic relationships) is that they tend to be less nice on-line, rather than the opposite, because they can say all the things anonymously that they can't get away with in real life.

As long as you follow the standard "rules" of on-line relationships. There is a thread on CR


http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-279539/The-dangers-of-the-online-world-ie-online-predators-and-you.html

which has some great tips for avoiding predators. Keep these in mind, and be careful.

I know of several romances that started on-line, and led to successful happy marriages.

If you want to make a good impression, it doesn't matter if you do it in person or online, you can still easily lie to create said impression. As to the ability to keep the lies straight, I'd say that would be a direct reflection of the skill of the liar (mainly based on how smart they are, if we're being honest with ourselves here and the credulity of the person being lied to). Speaking as an at least halfway decent liar, I think you might be surprised how easy it is to keep someone in the dark...

chatting online, in general, is not really bad...

but the problem is that you really don't know who you are talking to. if you fall in love with someone you don't know...well....love IS mysterious in its own way. for me, there is nothing really wrong with dating online, but the question is: will your relationship work out????

i have a friend who had a boyfriend online. the guy knew my friend's face, by my friend didn't. my friend at first was really into their relationship but eventually got tired of it and stopped using the internet for a while. then the guy started to fall for another girl while she wasn't online. so they eventually broke up. this is what i didn't like with online relationship.

some may come out good, some may not. so i leave my final answer as it depends on the couple.
