I think you can, but it would be very hard to find the real thing.

The thing about finding love online is, you NEVER know if its real. You may think you do, but you don't. That's the scary thing about the internet and human beings. As Shakespeare says (LOL), "Fair is foul, and foul is fair." Not everything is what it seems. This can happen in real life too, I understand that, but at least you can look this person in the eye and see if something strange is going on when you're around them. You can at least have some sort of instinct and notice their behaviors or what they say to you. Not having a barrier (internet) blocking their actions or facial expressions and having no instinct at all.

I want to believe that people can become their true selves online but at the same time, they can be their fake selves for whatever reason. That's why I believe dating in real life is more appealing because it has more positive aspects to it then dating online which can be a bother or even worse-- dangerous. Dating in real life can be a bother if the relationship is basically shit. (abusive, no love in it just for money, forced relationship, ETCC) But its still more positive because you can see them in the flesh and socialize more, and still get to know them. I know my points are vague but I don't give a shit, this isn't an essay paper. This is my own personal opinion. o3o

Not sure if serious.

Why would the online thingy have to do with anything? I assume with "can you find love online" is that it will have a real-life outcome, after most likely webcamming, conversations and all that shiz. Your whole post was irrelevant and stupid.

Yeah but even webcamming may not show a persons true self. OKAY HERE'S THE THING. I get that people can't tell who a person is whether it to be in real life or online. I'm just saying the internet can be more risky on finding love. PFFT your face was irrelevant and stupid. I never even implied that man! GEEZUS.

.. Thinking you'll see someone's "true self" because you meet them at a random place is pretty weird. Even if you can, not everyone's gifted in reading body language or vague hints at someone's personality.

And it's pretty much what you were implying. I'd say there's less risk in finding "love" online than in "real life", because there's more time spent in getting to know the person.

I think for each person it's different-- some people can, some people can't.
In my case, I don't think I ever could.

I met my girlfriend on-line, we became friends first and 2 years later we fell in love with each other. We do live a couple of hundred miles apart but due to the internet we can still keep in touch every day and we spend weekends/weeks together when we can. We've even revived that age old art of letter writing it takes work and commitment but there's no reason why an on-line relationship can't work.

i fell in love online twice and both times ended in long distance relationships and long distance break ups but i won't say that i wouldn't try it again??? i mean, you can't help feeling attracted to someone and becoming close with them no matter the distance or where you happened to come across them. it always pisses me off when people give long distance relationships and relationships where the people met online less validity than """"Real Relationships""" because to me it's the same thing. as long as you are happy with the way another person makes you feel, it's totally possible and valid and worth just as much as anybody else's love.

It's possible. I met my boyfriend online. We started talking about anime, ended up meeting up, and have been dating ever since

What are some reasons for why you think you're attractive, or perhaps not attractive? Think you're too tall? Too small? Did you take a fall? Yeah, that doesn't make sense, true, but it rhymes, so that's good.

Please no bashing other people and adhere to the forum rules. Or I'll steal your face. 'Kay? Lovely.


Steal mine because I am full of awesome and I don't mind sharing with you, dork.

I've read stories about people finding love in games like WoW. Like seriously falling for someone in the game, eventually meeting, and then getting married. Still together too so I guess it's possible.

My friend met his current girlfriend in a similar fashion.

I personally have tried, and failed. So I can't do the whole finding love online thing. Unless I want to click on those very unsafe links on those very unsafe websites that I totally don't go to.


Also question of the day is? What is love?

Worked for me via eHarmony.com. Married back in 2006 first time. Never too late at age 58 then. No regrets though my life has been upside down ever since.
