I look back at the post I made above yours, and then I read this and it's full of truth. Pretty much describes my love life since the last woman in my life and onward.

It can work for some people, but it isn't easy. I met my wife online. We talked for 6 months and then she moved to be with me. 6 years later and still going strong. But, for every success story there are 100 that fail. Distance is more than some people can deal with, especially when one or both parties aren't in a financial situation to make something happen.

I think it's just downright weird, and you must really be desperate to search for someone online. Either that, or you must really take rejection up the ass. The only reason I'll accept people using online as means of meeting somebody is if your schedule is hectic and you don't have time to go search, but if you have all the time in the world and still refuse to go out to meet people, that's just wrong.

Internet dating is not something I think would work for me personally, however, each to their own.



The internet is a great place to find people who share similar interests with yourself, and it gives you the opportunity to meet people who you would otherwise probably never have the opportunity to do so in real life. Building a relationship online, depending on how much importance you place on it, can be all fun and games. However I'd probably make sure not to make it too serious or get too attached, as it really can hurt the other person or yourself when either one of you decides that you'd rather commit to someone else in real life.

Also when and if you decide to meet the person in real life, certain chemistry that you two may have felt online, might diminish. People are always different online as opposed to how they are in reality, and meeting that person may be a rude awakening to your lack of knowledge on the person. Online you place a lot of trust in the person, and you can't really do much but take their word on who they are, what they do, look like etc. So meeting irl can be something of a risky situation.

It's something I wouldn't choose for myself personally, but it's not something I frown upon, people can genuinely find happiness online, I just don't think I'm one of those people

Don't even like to be "friends" with someone over the internet. Don't care about online dating or cyber friendship.

I don't know if dating online is good or bad. The only thing I know now is I'm in-love with someone I met here. We've been bestfriends for over a year now and we've been dating for almost 8 months already. I can say that we're loving each other more each day. We play games together, laugh at silly jokes, fight over stupid things; we almost do what couples will do personally. We talk everyday. When we webcammed, I just want the time to stop and all I can do was look at him with his charming smile. We are planning to meet each other soon.

Meeting people offline limits you to the people in your immediate area usually and that doesn't always mean they are the right one for you. Meeting someone online is limitless which can be good or bad depending on the situation. You could find someone you really connect with though which may be better then "settling" for something close by. You could even meet someone close-by that you didn't know about do to different circumstances on the net. It really isn't all that bad.

Hmm it depends on who you are... But personally im against online dating! You can pretend to be anything you want on cyberspace! So its pretty dangerous n not safe... Online dating is nothing like meeting a person in real life and being in a relationship with them...its rele hard to get a know a person through the internet.....
And love isnt all about having the same interests... there's alot more that ir requires than sill superficial things like each others lame interests n all....

I don't find it wrong if someone meet a person with alot of interest,good communication and than something developes.It also doesn't matter if it's a none-dating website because you're gonna find it one way or another.If you like someone over the net and they also like you!I would say share Facebooks or webcam and try to know each other well!because some people fake pictures or Facebooks so it's not really that easy.I guess webcaming is the best and also be sure you're close to they're age.It's okay if you're 15 and he/she 16 or 17 but don't go overboard always be as close as the age you are.If now you're wanna take it SERIOUS! and meet.Meet in a place where it's really public so there won't be no tricks & atleast bring a friend if anything happens(Har har).

Experince:

I met a guy on GaiaOnline on Christmas Eve 09 and we made a year of being close friends.We talked and got to know each other alot.We both webcam,I met his sister & parents.He hasn't been able to meet mine as in webcam like he did but he has by picture on Facebook & Myspace he has met my little sister and were also only a year apart.So far,We been good friends and we do hope we can meet next year.
Hopefully,This is a better view as in if you're abit more careful,it could work because it fun to have a penpal.
The only difference here is were just close friends and not in a relationship but it's close as a example.

i don't mind dating on line, i haven't dated on CR but I wouldn't be against it. people on this site have more in common with me then anyone in my hometown. plus I have been dieing for a reason to get out of here anyways.

Er no thanks. I'm old fashioned in the sense that I like to get attracted to a girl by meeting her "love at first sight" not "love at first emoticon"

I was also stalked on Facebook by this chick. Was weird as hell, I got fraped saying "just did a banging shit" and she commented on it saying "hah me too."

Freaked the fuck out and deleted her ass.

Last I checked this was an anime streaming website not a daiting website. If you meet someone and in time have a relationship with this person then by all means, I am not going to control what you do in you're spare time...... or will I? MUHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAAAAA

I agree with this completely. Certain websites can be a great forum for meeting people - and it's especially helpful if you don't have much other opportunity to get out and meet people - but...there's also so much that can go wrong with it.

Mostly, I just have a really hard time trusting what I see on the internet. How do I know the picture someone posted as their profile pic wasn't just taken from Google? If I were to online date, the guy would have to do a hell of a good job convincing me beforehand that he is who he says he is. But even then, I think I'd still be iffy, especially if he lives far away - in my opinion, long distance just doesn't work, and I'm not putting myself through that.

But I guess what it really comes down to is that I'm not really interested in being in a relationship right now anyway, so since I'm not even really looking IRL, why would I bother with internet dating? =P

I'm a pretty touchy-feely person so to me a relationship just isn't the same without physical touch.
