I think it really depends on where you look for it online. In some situations the fact our communication is limited to and condensed into a couple of words in a few sentences really help squeeze the essence of our being into one easily understood unit. In that sense, by removing all the external worldly trappings you can really get to know someone for who they really are.

Of course that isn't always the case. This is especially true in situations where you have something to gain/lose such as dating sites or mmorpg. Here things become trickier and more susceptible to false representations. Not to mention the above really only works if what you're seeking is deep meaningful communication at the expense of all other factors.

A friend of mine met his wife online and now they've been married 11 years with 2 children.

I wouldn't trust anyone online. Especially after being in a not so good relationship. There are some people I've met online, then when I finally talk to them in person they are totally different. I'm pretty sure I'm different myself.

I am a bit old fashion, so I prefer just to find love through luck. And I am a bit doubtful of it working well on the internet. While the web give you a look at how a person really is on the inside, how they act may be totally different.

This, although I believe love can be found anywhere, if someone has luck finding the love of their life then I'm happy for them, it just wouldn't be the place to look for me, either. Everyone's different offline, even "good" people. It would just be too weird, I guess having thought more about it.

I found love online and we're still together 7 years later. Mind you it wasn't on any of the sites you mentioned, nor was it intentional. We just happened to meet on a similar anime site, hit it off, talked for hours every day, and fell in love within a couple of months. It was a couple of years before we were able to meet in person (both very young at the time), but when we did it was all the more worth it. Now we're planning on getting married after we're done with bachelor's degrees and attending grad school together.

It can work, as can long distance relationships. But it depends entirely on the people involved.

My story was exactly the same! I quoted it so I don`t write everything XD

The difference is the "ending" of the story, after 3 years and a half of going out we broke up O___O we were just looking for different things in life but I`m sure she was the love of my life ^___^ she didn`t lived that far from me tough (about 1 hour driving) when we where together I met her every weekend and we talked everyday via skype.

So I`m sure (extremely sure) that you can meet someone that ends up being you soul mate.

They say love comes when you're not expecting it.
If you're online a lot but not for love reasons, why not? ^ ~ ^

I think that finding love online can work only for certain occasions. My friend is on Tinder and she's obsessed with talking to other guys and sometimes it worries me because I feel like she's not getting to truly experience what falling in love is like. As I get older, I want to find my soul mate by my own means and not from the assistance of the internet.
I just believe that falling for someone in person is more rewarding than being matched up with someone online.

Yeah I like that way of thinking. Every time I've gone out with the intention of meeting girl and such, I always get to focused on that, and bummed when I don't. But it turns out, if I just go out and do my thing and have fun with my friends, I meet way more girls and friends that way. So I believe, at least with me, it won't come if I look for it. So just do what I normally do and have fun. That's all that really matters in the end.

As for love online, I really have no issue with meeting people IRL, but I wouldn't be opposed to it. As someone above said, you can meet someone who isn't restricted by "worldly pressures" and such, and that can allow for a deeper connection. I have a few really close friends I've known for nearly 10 years that I met through online gaming, even though I've never met them in person. But we skype and text all the time, so it is as if they are always there. So yeah, I totally think meaningful, and successful relationships can happen online.

Though just the same, people can falsify their personalities, so do be careful.

Personally I wouldn't do it but I know people who have met online and are now living together so it can work. If someone feels like trying it then why not.

You can find a lot more information on how compatible someone is online than you can by getting drunk and talking to equally drunk strangers.
