Love is the feeling of contentment caused by the company of another individual. Regardless of whether the companionship is one over the internet or one in reality, the feeling of content may only be realized with an image of that particular individual. The image however, is rarely a true reflection of character, both online and in real life. So I see no additional obstacle preventing a 'love' online than one would experience in real life.

Of course, if your views on what 'love' actually is, differs from my definition, then your conclusions might be surprisingly different.


you see the contentment you are referring at is just at our cognitive side....since we tend to imagine and exaggerate things in particular.......

"contentment" doesn't really suit when you're in company of another whether online or physical, as you said, i'd like to rebut that since........when are you ever contented loving someone "fully" on the internet without including the sense of touch and real affection....

and so to say this... the contentment you are referring to is only at our cognitive capacity to view things as they really aren't........

I wont say that love on the interent is any good, its possible, yeah. I, for one, cannot judge. But, it would be better if you meet someone offline, then the relationship will seem more real. Plus, it might end good or it might not. Thats the gamble you'd have to take if your thinking about online relationships.


its the same gamble you make in real life

Yes, it might seem like it's the same gamble but it isnt. Wouldnt it be better to take that gamble for someone you know and met? Then you wouldnt feel too insecure that maybe the dude or chick you met isnt some sort of 50 year old man trying to pull a prank on you or maybe scamming you. Think of all the possibities. Anyone could go to the internet and pretend to be someone they are not. A lot of poeple had been a victim of such things. Safety is also a one of things in this topic that has to be regarded. In the current world today, its better to trust and truly fall in love with the person you've seen for real.

just asking questions here!

well..

do you actually believe love could exist here on the internet by means of electronic interaction without involving the "physical" part of the being?

you know what they say, words are faster than actions?
but could it be that without personal interaction people do get in love in reality?
have you tried admiring someone here on the internet you've just chatted?
hmmm...
how can you actually define "love on the internet"?

feel free to express your ideas!



Yes sweety. its normal to be inlove or love in internet.
we are human we have feelings.

Love on the internet? I don't think so. Some other people just don't know what is the difference between love and admiration.

I don't think love on the internet really works out. Of course, I do believe in exceptions. A couple who was close by before and somehow got separated may be able to continue a long distance relationship via things like chatting on AIM and such, or a couple that meets online and decides to get to know each other on the internet before meeting in person.

But somewhere, a line has to be drawn. For people using the internet to keep a relationship going, they should be using other things too, like talking on the phone, sending gifts and handwritten letters through the mail, planning to visit each other from time to time, and eventually ending physical separation and going to be with each other in person. A relationship based solely off the internet cannot work.

While I do think it is possible, I don't think its that common.as people make it out to be. A lot of times people will mistake net-love for just having someone who is concerned for you or someone you can open up to you. People can have a love style relationship over/on the internet but I don't think it'll ever be a complete love. Without physical interaction (actual person/person communication) there will always be something missing from the relationship. Whether or not they are willing to accept that would be up to the two people in question.

People meeting online and falling in love is very real. In fact, it's very common over online games, like World of Warcraft. I know people who've started dating over the internet, and then eventually met up irl and further progressed their relationship. Not to mention, there are countless stories of people who eventually got married after meeting, and dating online.

It's a very different form of communication, but humans still have feelings, even if you can't see the person you're talking to. I'm sure the main reason it confuses people is because meeting online is very focused on personality and their mental attributes, rather than the typical reason people fall in love; which is a very physical thing.

Anyway, like any relationship, if you don't try to further progress it, it'll be at a standstill. Im sure if the people I mentioned above never took that step forward to meeting each other then the relationship would've never progressed, and they would've got bored and eventually let go of said other person. This is probably why most would only go as far as e-crush.
