The only thing i know is that all my knowledge is but a grain of sand in the great beach of existence, but hey here goes. I have had this happen a couple of times and i also know a couple of people where it has worked out. But if going from my experience i'd have to say no you can't, it is not just a matter of connection/physical appearances or distance. The first time it happened to me the girl who i had been contacting for about a year just eventually one day vanished after talking for that long, maybe i'm just a fool but i wanted to believe that i had actually found something special. The second time was a few years later this time is was destroyed by that great leveler of cooperation between people called religion, after 2-3 months of being dragged along the end answer was no i can't unless you are the same religion as me or convert.
Now i have had attempted relationships on the real plain shall we say and i have come across similar problems, however you find out about these early on i tend to find so there is no damage. But when it is online the rules of engagement shift and change with more important questions being dodged or put on the back burner. I am sorry this may seem a pessimistic view but it is what i have come to know. I wish i could of met the right one by now through any channel of communication real or not, i wish i seemed to find nicer people generally but it doesn't happen this way. It can be very lonely and although i keep an eye open i do not hold out much hope.
(sorry for the grammar and the weird sentence structure i struggle to express things sometimes due to dyslexia. And so after that depressing comment you may want to microwave some chocolate icecream and have a very unhealthy chug of it) ^_^

i suppose it's possible, the same way you make friends online, but not very wise. the internet makes it easy for creeps to act like the perfect person for you. there's no real way of telling that they who they say they are. i for one, would never even begin a relationship online

Is it possible? Yes. Would I try this? No

Go for it. You won't know until you try

NO, the only purpose of love is so you can have kids (blood related) and that when you are about to die you kill your partner so that they may stay with you eternally.

I'm in love with someone I met online, and we've been dating for over a year as of November 23rd.
I knew them for about 3 months before we decided to get into a relationship, so I know it wasn't rushed or forced.
I may not have met them yet, but I will do so as soon as possible.

All this sounds pathetic, and yes, I would so much rather be dating them in real life. IRL>Online, but in some cases, the turmoil is worth it because of your significant other.

Anyone can even if its one sided, the question is whether to pursue or not.

I think it can happen. I've been quite in love with a girl I met online for the longest time. We met on a blog for our school and we instantly became good friends. We talked on there and then email, text and then facetime. Our friendship has been going for four years now and that means a lot to me because I can say nobody ever sticks around like that. Well, She told me she was going to graduate and she wished I could come see her for her graduation but knew it was impossible for me to do so. It made me really want to go and I saved up my money and got ahold of her sister and told her I was coming but not to tell her. So when I showed up at her house she was SHOCKED. To be honest I was a nervous wreck and when she opened the door I could barely get words out. When I saw her I was like, "Crap! She's even more beautiful than I though!". And now here I am. Madly in love with a girl I've only met once and hopping it turns into something more than just friendship. So wish me luck!!! Cause I need it haha

I think is possible, yes, to be romantically involved via online. I've seen it happen. Your testimonies speak for themselves too.
I've never been so I can't talk from personal experience, but I think this is a very interesting topic.

What happens when the two people met in real life depends on the person. For example...


I mean, now you can see your partner thanks to Skype or any other program, so physical appereance may not be a problem.

I think feeling safe behind your monitor may help in falling romantically involved.

Online is the best place to find booty calls

I honestly think it doesn't matter where people meet, because in order for a relationship to survive, both parties need to be willing to put in the work and learn / grow together regardless of whether it's an online or real life relationship. It all depends on the people.

I dated a girl I met online. Now granted it wasn't a dating site (Xynga ftw!) and I had been hanging out with her in person for a year IRL before we started dating. We dated for like 3 months and I broke it off because it was getting serious and I was about to move for school and I didn't want to be tied down. 7 years later and we're still friends, and I would not change a thing (except maybe have tried to keep it on for longer).

To make a long story short - yeah it's good as long as you know them IRL. Otherwise you'll just end up like Manti Teo.

I certainly think it's possible, albeit more difficult.
