Just wondering if anyone has ever "fallen" for someone they met online that lived far away? How did it turn out? Did you ever meet them, and if so, how did it go?

My brother did. He lives in California and talked to a girl in Australia for months. He felt very connected to her and really enjoyed their online conversations. He finally put together the money to visit her and when they met, she turned out to be mentally unstable and ignored my brother. Luckily her family was very nice and made sure his trip was not a waste.
I have met many men online and when I met them in person they usually were quite different than what I thought. Their personalities did not match what they seemed like online. People can be so much more relaxed and act like someone else online. They can say amazingly romantic things and you can fall in love, but you are falling in love with an image, not who they really are.
I think online can be a good way to meet someone but meeting this is the only way you will know if there is something really there.2
