I personally haven't, but I know some friends who have "met" from MMO's and have used MSN/Skype to contact each other for a while, only problem is they were long distance and didn't work out, IMO long distance sucks, but I like hearing about love online and know it has happened for some people and works well.

You can make great lifetime friends online so why cant you find love :).

You can find it but you cannot keep it.

i met my girlfriend online well through a friend of mine in a differnt country she introduced us and we have been talking for 8 months and met up about 2 weeks ago we finally decided to go out and its working out really well we are a country apart but its just makes it better when i do see her even tho it is hard. least i am going to see her over christmas.

so i believe it can work as it has worked out for me and i hope it works for other people to just dont get sucked into a relationship where you dont really know what the person looks like. So make sure to go on cams with who her you are going to go for online so you dont get hurt if its all one big lie.

Of course you can, it all just depends on the kind of person that you are. Everyone needs the physical and mental attraction of another person to actually fall in love but certain people need one before the other. If you need to be mentally attracted to someone before the physical aspect then its too easy to fall in love through the internet. It obviously needs to become more than just an online relationship sometime in the couples future but when that actually happens all depends on them.

I never beliefed in it.
I always thought people are fooling themselfs in beliving to find real love online if they can not even do it outside of the online world.
The problem is that a lot of people are not honest online and even more seem to be desperate to find someone.
I met a married couple while playing an MMO several years ago we played and chatted together for a few years over that time there marriage took a turn for the worse.
The wife felt neglected and started to look for support online and since there are a lot of desperate people online she found a guy rather fast he seemes perfect and one night when her husband was away for work again she decided to leave and move to the other guy,
The problem was that the guy was not even close to what he claimed to be he just acted to be the kind of guy she was looking for.
Needless to say that she returned home the very same night.
So i still say its almost impossiple to find real love over the internet if you are actually looking for it as soon as it becomes known you are looking lots of despertate people will claim to be mister/misses right even tho they are just a frog in a well.


However over the same timeframe i met a women playing the same game. We both were not looking for a relationship as we both just came out of a bad one.
We just played the game together but over time we started to talk more and more to each other and we noticed that we enjoyed each others company a lot.
She was living in America while i was in Germany but even so we just knew it was going to work so i just packed my stuff and flew over.
I never returned to germany we are married for over 5years now and could not be happier.

So even tho i never thought it possible i actually found the perfect fit for me online but i still believe that it was only possible cause neither of us actually wanted to find a relationship and therefore were just open and honest to each other rather than trying to make a good impression.

I've been married for 10 years, and I met my husband online. I didn't do online dating or anything though. We were friends for two years online due to similar interests. We met in person a couple of times and eventually did long distant dating. (We're both in the USA but lived several states apart.) He proposed to me and then joined the Air Force, so our engagement was long distance as well. After 6 months of being married he got deployed, so half of my first year as a married woman was long distance too! (Actually, I'm glad a lot of our relationship was long distance in the beginning, because it made the separations caused by the military life style a lot more bearable.)

So, yes, you can find love online. All the things you need to make a "real life" relationship work hold true for online relationships as well. It's what you--and the other person--invest into the relationship that matters, not how physically close you are to each other. If both parties put the same amount of work into the relationship (and have similar or complimentary moral standards) they can succeed regardless of where they are.

Perhaps the only thing I would give is a word of caution: BE SENSIBLE AND BE CAREFUL. Even though I really loved my husband--even before we were dating--I understood the risk involved. Love makes people blind and stupid. Without knowing the real history of a person through experience, that kind of blindness can cause you to open your heart too quickly and then end up needlessly heartbroken (it can even be physically dangerous). I made sure trusted people were involved in my relationship with him (family and friends) so that they could examine his character and make sure he was worth my time. Only after they gave approval (and he met everyone from my best friend in Highschool to my grandparents.. I was VERY thorough) did I start pursuing him seriously. Planning ahead and making sure you have trusted people who will speak to you honestly about your situation (and whose advice you will actually listen to!!) will save you a lot of time and heartbreak later!

Also, my sister, who is 6 years younger than me (I'm 30 if you're wondering) is in a successful online relationship. I think she's been dating him officially for over a year now (maybe two at this point). They don't live close enough to see each other regularly and they're both too poor to even attempt moving closer, so they're not able to do more than online dating right now. But, you know, my sister has grown a lot because of him and is happier and more sure of herself due to his influence. I don't know if I care at this point whether their relationship will last (though I think it will), I think it's successful simply because of the positive influence it's had on her.

Sure. But, I think that in order to keep up an online relationship without moving it into the real world, you need to have a lot more trust in the other person and work harder at staying together. I think I'd get a little paranoid, wondering if everything my partner was telling me was true. it's easier to lie when you don't have to see each other face to face. Same kind of deal with any long-distance relationship, really. I don't think having an exclusively online relationship would work for me. Starting a relationship online is totally doable, though.

Yeah, I thinks its a lot easier for older people rather than teenages/people who still live with their parents etc, cause you can see them if you want on your own terms

Yes it is possible, but I think it is best to look for love in the real world.

I think it's possible, just not very probable.

Written language communicates less than spoken language; written language lack inflection. It is more impersonal because there is a lack of facial expressions and body language.
example: sarcasm

Yes I think it's possible, but it's probably harder
