Like, people on here who say they're in a relationship, even though they live in different countries and have never met each other.
Isn't it sad that these people obviously can't meet someone in real life, so they resort to flirting online, and going so far as to start 'dating'?
Personally I think it's pretty pathetic. Like, get a life. Grow some social skills.

Oh Damn here we go. -_-...
Firstly I would like to disclose that: I've personally never done online dating or dated someone exclusively online, nor do I have any intention to in the immediate future.
So I'm not exactly clear what your issue is.
Is it that these people have no face to face social skills or that the medium of which they share their relationship is fake or illegitimate.
Ok, so in my previous relationship I met my partner while hanging out in the city. Long story short we can barely see each other at times only meeting once a month. Most of our interaction was through technology, you know texting/messages, voice chats etc.
So is our relationship legitimate? I barely see her and once she left the country I didn't see her at all. Much of our relationship developed online, you go to the cinema we shared a Skype call while watching Netflix.
Is it legitimised because we have met each other? Is physical contact a requirement for a relationship? I don't think so.
Another part of online dating that I sympathise with is the convenience. Judging by the amount of dating based questions on this site, meeting your significant other seems to be a very difficult task these days.
I have a friend who is in a two year relationship which all started from weeks of online chatting with a stranger. They now happily live with each other. He isn't some anti social reject. He works full time and doesn't have the time to go out 'hunting for birds'.
Somewhat contradictory to this stuff i would say that marrying someone you have never seen is a little weird and yeah going out of your way to meet people online is a little petty. Security concerns are always a bit shit but hey that's life, I've known people who have lied about themselves straight to my face, this being no different to lying online.
