Wowzers. You have the Internet, and I'm guessing Cable, and You haven't heard of things like E-Harmony, or Match.com...? Amazing.


Looked it up that's funny and so many people are like it's magic. haha


Bahaha, that's amazing that You were able to stay so far under the radar as not to notice these. You're actually a much luckier Man, as a result of it! Wanna see something funny? Look up Cougarlife.com....

I always think that it will end in a bad way, especially if you have no plans to meet in person.

I think in 2014 it is very possible to date someone you met on the internet, i know a couple that met on World of Warcraft and they're still happily married, probably one of the people that get along the most from what i've seen, i think the beauty of the internet is that it gives you the opportunity to talk to like minded people and realize you're not the only person on earth that likes this or that, i mean, just use yourselves as an example, how many people that you know or see around your neighborhood that have absolutely nothing in common with you, a lot of people are surrounded by assholes on a daily bases and the internet gives them that escape to talk to and engage with other people, hence, giving you a much better opportunity to meet someone that you'll get along with and be happy, of course it's easier said than done, but i know plenty of people that travelled to other countries to meet their internet loved ones, if it doesn't work out, the worst thing that could happen is that you got a cool trip to another country out of it.

They were talking about it on the radio this morning saying it's pretty much the norm these days. In fact I met my girlfriend online and we've been together for 5 years. I say it's but be careful.

Exactly. And the beauty of it is that you talk to another like minded individual and get to know one another on a deeper, more meaningful level without the physical aspect getting in the way. The gradual bond and sharing ideals and talking of things you have in common can be way more amazing and fulfilling than a cliché party or bar hookup. It's how I met my significant other. I got to really know him without all the posturing and bullshit that can occur in person. He got to really know me. He just got lucky that I happen to be cute too. Lololol j/k. I think my real life story is why I like the show Catfish so much. That could have just as easily been us.I would just advise that people go about it safely and cautiously.

For sure, there's a lot of posturing and a desperate attempts to impress the other person when it's a physical encounter, like you said, at a bar or at a party, cause guys are like " that's my only shot, i need to impress her" so i feel like that's where a lot of the alpha male ego bullshit comes into play, and let's be honest, not a lot of people you meet at a bar or a party will like you for your interests,personality, intelligence, the point of those social gatherings is to have fun and flirt and hook up without thinking too much about it, so i feel like apperance plays a major role for sure.
I agree with you that people can as easily lie about who they are just like in Catfish.

Also, when i had a guild in Ragnarok ( many years ago) this girl from the guild that i started talking to on skype kept on pushing to meet me, and i was a little weirded out by it cause she had not even seen how i looked like, so i start ignoring her, then she moves on to hit on my real life friend that was also in the guild, long story short, he's dumb enough to meet her in real life, he gets there, her boyfriend and some dudes beat him up and steal his cellphone and wallet, so yeah, it's not always a fairy tale

Your best bet is to play an MMORPG. People who date each other from those usually last longer than people who meet on random sites.

Good luck.

I have and am in a online relationship, and we plan to meet in about a month or so. I'm no expert on the matter, but considering I had 4 online relationships and 1 irl, I personally find online dating just as exciting. From chatting on skype face-to-face, playing MMOs together, and just watching livestreams, my gf and I have fun in what we do. Of course, we still want to meet irl, so we made arrangements to do so.

The only concern I have is how trusting/gullible some people can be. In my time of playing MMOs since Fiesta Online was in Beta, I meet many men who played as girls, some just not even saying they were. In general though, as long as you've been on the internet for quite a long time, you can identify most/all traps depending on how they act. Even with me being regarded as a girl countless times from just the way I act in MMOs, even with a male avatar, you just learn how people act.

To each their own though. You don't have to, as traditional dating is for the long run better when you start out. You can know a person better from how they talk irl than they do in skype or through text. Each has its own benefits and I think that's what matters, more possibilities to meet others, and not just in a dating way.

A bit, but I guess more excited than anything. As a person who loves hugs and cuddles, I can't deny them when we first see each other~ Hehe >w<
