As with all relationships if one out of the two is an idiot, it'll fail regardless of the starting point.

I have and am in a online relationship, and we plan to meet in about a month or so.


Good luck! I remember how nervous I was when I was in that situation. It doesn't help that he was late picking me up at the airport. >< lol
Equal parts exciting and nerve-racking! Update us!

If by internet dating you're referring to websites or chat rooms that cater to being able to meet up with local singles in your area, then I think that's all right.

Purely e-dating someone you've met in a game/form/chatroom though I think isn't good. I've gone that route several times and it's always been a really really bad experience for me. In a nutshell the person will convince me to have real feelings for them, tell me lies about their lives (fake names, fake plans to meet me), and then eventually drop off the face of the planet when I start to catch wind that it's all bullshit. That's 4 or 5 e-relationships of mine in a nutshell.

Since I swore off that sort of online crap I've had exponentially healthier relationships (met more girls, gone on more dates, had better relationships, gotten laid more), and I've been much happier and healthier in general.

So if someone flirts with me online, be it here or anywhere really I don't really even respond to it. Unless they live within an hour's drive from me it just isn't going to happen.

I'm going to simply quote you. Makes my job a bit easier. Lol.

I'll add that "online dating" and "dating someone online" should be two different things. Some people turn to online dating sites for a large number of reasons, either do to social issues or stress, work or times issue, etc. "Dating someone online" is more that e-relationship stuff. For a small group of folks it may work, but most it doesn't. I've found I require actual human interaction at a certain point.

You can hurt someones feelings without even realizing it or take something the wrong way. There are plenty of trust issues as well. Most people who isolate themselves from the real world look for someone on the internet. Which can cause a lot of dependencies. From always needing attention to neglecting them.

I'm dating someone over the internet right now. And no, it wasn't because of an internet dating site, we just talked randomly on youtube, thought that each other was interesting, exchanged emails, became friends and voila, we started liking each other and I don't think we plan to break up any time soon.

I do agree, though, that internet dating isn't the best way to go, usually; people can lie about themselves on the internet and it just isn't natural because it not like you met by chance or anything, you chose that person which is bad because sometimes what you want in a person, isn't always what you need in a person making a relationship formed on line more likely to fail :(

Hope that doesn't happen to me and my future hubby! :'(

i've done internet dating before. wasn't bad, but also didn't last.

so idk, guess it could work but i think it has less likely chance to work than meeting someone in real life
