Here is a question for you all. Do you think that love can genuinely be found online, or is it just a way for more broken hearts.?

To be honest in my own view, meeting people online and falling in love before you've ever really met each other seems like the perfect way to meet, the way we look and other prejudice views go out the window, its a way to be you without any worries, and should you like someone you've met online, that surly thats the real thing....

BUT I also believe that you never can tell if your in love then when you get that funny feeling in your tummy, which then makes me think that intact online love is all lies and in the long term 2 people who will end up feeling like they have wasted the past however long of their life.

Whats everyone else's view?

I think that for some people can find their match,and for some not. I experienced online dating before,and i found out i was just bringing more drama in my ''cyber-life''.I think its better to date in real life,then online.Plus,real life love is better,rather then meeting someone online,and your far away from them.

Yeah. I fell in love with someone I met online, we went on about 3 dates.

I have a high EQ, so I can feel attachment with someone (who has personality traits that I like) easily.

It's too bad he didn't feel the same way for me. I think he has a really high IQ, but he was not romantic at all. And this lead to our incompatibility. I didn't care, I liked him because he was 100% honest and very intelligent (he's like 19 but he's so wise beyond his age).

Because of his high IQ, I feel like I couldn't entertain him in intellectual conversations? It was way beyond my intellectual capacity and limit. And so I had to let him go. And he agreed. So there wasn't any tension, just lots of tears for me. Don't know if he cried or not, he doesn't seem like the type to cry.



He said he still wanted to be friends with me, but I told him, I don't want to be his friend because it would hurt me in the long run and I wouldn't be able to rid of my feelings for him.
Also apologized to him that what I'm doing is cruel and heartless, but I have to look out for my own health, and I told him never to contact me again.

I've fallen in love online.

In fact that's how my current girlfriend and I have met. We started talking online about 8 years ago and we just never stopped talking regardless of what was going on in our lives. We had relationships but we never stopped talking. Then as we got older and I could finally drive I went out to meet her and go to Warped Tour together. This was very nerve racking of course, but I have skyped with her a lot and had permission to take her so all was good on that front. The initial meet up was scary and I have never travelled that far before, but I knew it was worth it. After that the rest is history.

We're still dating after over a year and going strong. We're apart currently because she's off at college, but it's back to how we started and she'll move back and live with me again when she's done.

So to answer your question one way, yes.

Have other relationships not worked? Of course, it's trial and error.

The feels, I am truly sorry for your lost my good sir

As for the Topic

Yes: I am unable to explain this properly so someone pls... ASSIST ME ... if you like pls (>OwO<)

No: Many people online sometimes Lie and sometimes think of it as a game and think of it as something that does not have consequences like in reality when it actually does to people online (i am sorry i find it hard to feel somethings online myself)

Online, sure. I mean, individuals talking and finding a connection can happen, if they're both willing to work at it, just like any other relationship.

Online dating services? Ehh, I'm a programmer. I know how buggy programs are, I'd never trust a computer to match me up with anyone.

Just falling in love? Yes. Assuming both people are being honest with each other about who they are I think it is very possible to fall in love with who they are.

When talking about things lasting long term? I think it is possible with the right conditions. It has to be realistic for the two to actually meet in person from time to time and eventually come together. If you aren't able to go do things with that person and all you can do is chat online or on the phone then I think the relationship would just get stagnant and old after some time.

I have a lot of social issues and so for the most part the only relationships I have had were online. A few were just cases where I thought I was in love but one of them was very real. I fell in love with a girl online but unfortunately I don't honestly think it had any long term potential from the start. We grew very close though and talked on audio and cam every day and even slept with headsets on some nights so that we could wake up with each other and just feel a little closer. Eventually though some stuff happened and now she's gone forever. I haven't ever felt the same about love or any relationship online or offline the same way since then. I just haven't been able to feel much of anything anymore. If what I felt really wasn't love then I don't know what it could have been and I don't ever want to experience real love that could end up hurting even more.

I think you can.
I fell in love with a girl from Texas and we would talk on the phone 3+ hours every night, and most nights we would fall asleep on the phone. We would have Skype dates and all that stuff. The problem was over time it got very hard because we were missing out on a lot of our day to day lives and the chance of being with someone that could be there for us physically and it was very hard and I still hurt knowing that I wont ever have her in my life but it might be for the best. She was perfection in my eyes.

But, that's just me I think.

I've had a few online romances over the years, but none of them ended the way we hoped once we met irl.

Of course you can find love online. My first relationship started and ended online, but I had, I think, the best time of my life. It only lasted 2 months, but felt like a year.

I do believe you can find love online. Hasn't happened to me (because I'm not looking), but I do know a couple of people who it has worked out for.

It doesn't really matter when or where two people meet - all that matters is how they are with each other.
