It can work if you have faith in it. If you are going to have negative issues about it then it's not going to work of course.

Acutally it is weak and pathetic. Unless you know the person in real life, you cannot get invovled in a deep and meaniful relationship. If it's a long distance relationship like Tietel then that's completely diffrent.


Yup. people can be pathetic though, its the internet.

Agreed on Ian being greedy :whistling:

You shouldn't date online. You don't want to end up like this man. [Click Here]

You can fall in love anywhere, and under any circunstaces.

But a romantic relationship can't last online. I certainly can start there, but has to "evolve" to the real life sometime.

relationships cannot b e purely online, obviously, but they are a good starting point to meeting new people and haveing some fun. A real 'relationship' with someone would require some real aspect of meeting the person in real life for it to work

This thread is, as Lee said, older than the proverbial balls.

But, for future reference, merely stating your opinion with "obviously" as a commathetical isn't an argument.

Honestly in my opinion I don't see how they could possibly work. But I have heard of a few people who have really fell in love over the internet. I think its risky, and has more losses then gains. But if something good happens then go for it. It can be dangerous though.

Personally, I'm against it. Online relationships only reveal a tiny window to both person's lives, and relationships require trust and much communication. That being said, you can hide your weight, lifestyle, etc. Therefore, I think it would always end up with both sides never really knowing each other fully. I've heard too many stories of people meeting for the first time face to face and... didn't break down too well.

I had a teacher last year who met her husband online. They have a baby. She is psychotic.

But on a serious note-
I personally couldn't have such a relationship. I need physical contact.

I second this. Personally I feel online interaction can serve as a starting point, a springboard for friendship to start, but for friendship to evolve into a serious relationship then real life physical interaction is almost a must. And I don't mean like skyping or webcaming. Once you hit relationship level I think physical contact is very much desired. But I suppose the initial stages of getting to know each other before deciding to commit may occur online. It's probably different from real life courting, but I don't think you CAN'T start with online.

Just to play the devil's advocate, you can also say that the online medium allows a timid and secretive person (in real life) to open up more freely? If you're socially awkward, then I can see how the lack of physical contact will make you feel more comfortable. I don't mean to create stereotypes, but I have a geek friend who is socially awkward and more comfortable with the computer. It's evident that it's easier talking to her online than in real life. But of course that's just at friendship level. You may say that relationships need more to sustain, but I feel it's unlikely she'd have a better chance starting a relationship in real life than online.

Yup, just my two cents.
