It's 2011, meeting people online has kind of lost it's taboo. I don't think there's much point in dating someone you haven't spent time with in person, personally, but I don't see any major issue with using an online venue to meet people with similar interests. Of course, most of the folks on CR are teenagers, and I think they should be especially careful with that sort of thing.

I've had online relationships before and trust me it's really not worth it, especially if you're expecting it to be some serious thing, trying to be in a relationship with someone you can't physically see or touch frankly is a waste of time.

Rule 1. Compatibility check. (Save yourself the trouble of things 'not working out'.)
Rule 2. Live close to one another. Maybe a County/State/District away from one another, or at least on the same continent.
Rule 3. Confirm their existence. Webcam preferable, or anything with voice. Also having them pose with their profile up in a photo works as a substitute-- but it isn't nearly as certain as the first two.
Rule 4. Weed out any hidden intentions. even if you confirm them as a beautiful girl with fair skin and dazzling eyes, there are still sickos and psychopaths out there. They don't take a fixed shape or existence.
Rule 5. Remain committed. This is by far the hardest thing for people. I don't know why, since I've never had trouble being committed, so I have to assume internet relationships are more 'ephemereal and transluscent' then 'there and actual' to alot of people.

Dating online takes patience and intelligence. Though not necessarily in that order if you are planning on being mature about it.

To be perfectly frank, I've never seen the problem with online dating long as you aren't dating a weird looking guy twice your age, or half your age. The biggest issues are confirming they are who they say they are. Don't be naive and optimistic since you shouldn't get emotionally connected until you've confirmed it. Also if you haven't proven their existence yet, get to it. If you have half a brain you should understand something is up if they evade and constantly give excuses from the minor to the simple outrageous.

Also I'll be the first to say this: Standards, learn them. Don't date a girl that has just broke up. That is called a rebounder, a leech-- a parasite, someone that has the 'emotional shock' of being broken-up with. It doesn't end well with anyone, just don't date a rebounder. Standards can be mitigated, or averted somewhat-- but should never be discarded. Look for interests, someone you can consider a FRIEND first. Don't go looking for love, that is like taking a shotgun to your foot and pulling the trigger. Just messy and painful.

Also, I don't recommend people following my sort of standards because chances are no one is as picky as me. You can have standards but don't make them outlandish or otherwise you'll even have trouble finding friends let alone a love interest. Love is about finding people who you want and what you want/don't want. The internet is actually a good place to find out what you want. The only condition I say is if you break-up, give it no less than 4 months to heal up. that is the healthiest recommended time for people to flush out the 'rebound symptoms'.


My recommendation? Be realistic. You'll probably never meet someone on a different continent. Or alternatively, the relationship won't last long enough if on a different continent. Choose someone close, or at least someone statistically close to you. Example: I'm not going to date a girl from Germany. As much as I'd love to, that'd just be hurtful in the end. I'd rather date the girl in Ohio, or New Jersey.


Verdammt... Longest post in a while. Go figure it'd be about love or some other shit.

I used to date people on here, when I was 13 years old. I didn't know anything about it. Ever since I turned 14 years, I thought this is so gay. You can't see the people or touch them. It's a waste of time. Some of them might be really ugly.

you know what people should be talking about or like talking about something serious.
these little kids in here having role playing or sex here. =.= its disturbing when i got an add from some perve. seriously i thought this site was for meeting people with interests in anime, and for watching anime, not meeting people who god knows what age they are and doing these things.

but for online dating, just make sure u actually know how they look like, and their age!!!
