Online Love

I think people can find love in strange places sometimes. The Internet has basically showed us how small this world is. It's like we are all brought into this little community through the Internet. So yeah you can find love online. I personally don't like dating sites as I feel there is more of a danger there. However to say if you found someone on CR I would think chances are that person is who they say they are. Just my thoughts though.


YES. That's how I met my boyfriend. I like you. You're smart.

Society changes over time and so do the ways people find love. However, that being said online relationships do have to become offline at some point. Also there are dangers of meeting people in the real world as well it’s just a different type of danger.

for a different (more angry Canadian) look at online dating

Can you find love online? I don't see why not. I've met several people who found their SO online and eventually married.

Just like every other way to find someone, however, it's not going to work for everyone.

There was a time where I used to chat with unknown people online, all the guys wanted something from me and I played along but I never took anything seriously. That's the key: don't take any online relationship seriously because, most of the time, they are not.

I'm straight but I find it ironic that the "best" online relationship I had was with an Italian girl. She was funny, perfect and didn't make me feel uncomfortable with love and sexual comments. Up to this day, I wish I could meet that sweet girl some day.....

To answer the question: probably....but not for me...unless it is with that Italian girl...I'm serious.

I met my boyfriend on a MMORPG(Ragnarok Online) in 2006, he lived about a 7 hour train trip away, he didn't even speak my native language(And I didn't speak his). We started dating in 2009 after meeting IRL twice and stayed long distance for 3 years. He moved to my country in 2012 and we've lived together ever since. (Also, we never intended this to happen ;p It was all a natural process and we were in love before we noticed it.)

Just sayin'; Long Distance Relationships DO work sometimes, it does really depend on what kind of person you are as it's not something easy I guess. Trusting each other is the most important thing with LDR.

Say the title with an extended loooooooove

It's 2015, so we're very much past the "good ol' days". People are attached to their phones, laptops, tablets, etc pretty much nonstop, so naturally it's become a new part of us.

30-40 years ago, only way to really meet potential mates was by going out, socializing, or maybe a backpage ad in a magazine


But now we have online dating sites, like Match, EHarmony, OkCupid, Christian Mingle. And for people my own age, the most popular is Tinder.


Now, Im wary of them. I am on Tinder, but am very cautious of how to use it, because you don't know what the real case is.

I feel like there's an added level of danger and uncertainty when you are using these, especially something like Tinder where it literally based solely off a picture at first.

I really don't know how I feel about stuff like this, but for every horror story you hear you hear a major success story.

But is online really the place to find love?


Are you hunting Asian girls in the music entertainment industry?

I only know one person who met their online love in real life. my cousin.. when he was in high school.. I was like 11 back then.. he ran away from home, took a flight to a different state, and met his online love... idk where he stayed since I was so young but I remember it being a big commotion with my uncle. later on in life... he goes into the military brings his GF online to his house... they get married and now 9yrs later he has two sons... hes moved out the house and is traveling with military, still with his girlfriend from online. his sons r cute btw I seen a postcard, they have such cute smiles. very little still. so it happens, I guess it's real online love bs if my cousin had to risk a lot of things to go see this chick.

You do realize people have fallen in love via medias like letters and such for hundreds of years, right. "Online" isn't exactly much different, except you can actually see eachother in real-time via cam, etc.


Aslong as you're aware of the danger of meeting a new person by yourself, without any real information about that person, I don't see how it's much different than picking up a random guy/girl at a bar.

Yes, it can happen but you have to be crazy careful, crazy sane and crazy compatible.

My husband and I are an online match before dating sites were a big thing. We met in an AOL chatroom and talked almost four years online and on the phone before finally meeting in person. It was a huge leap considering that it was still before everyone went crazy constantly taking selfies and web cams were still pretty rare.

We already had so much in common: my odd family situation, marriage expectations,gender roles.....

We took the time and energy to know each other,years worth of time.

So yes, it's possible but you really can't rush it.
