By online dating I mean you meet someone online and you talk to them. Just emailing, IMing, nothing more. You never meet in real life and probably won't. So why do so many people think the person they are emailing is someone they are dating? I mean, it's not real.it's fake. They don't even know this person, everyone is different online than in person. And they could be lying to you and you would never even know.

I guess to the people dating online it's real for them. Real enough to have developed feelings for that person and forge some sort of a relationship. Some people get really lonely and feel that an online relationship is the only way to go for them. They either have social issues or just don't want to be bothered by going out and having a face to face relationship.
Now I do think it is kind of silly because yes, people do lie in online relationships and the deceit can be greater than in face to face because they haven't met the person or they don't see them often enough to know their true character. But I guess those who choose to have an online only relationship have their reasons. Lying and deceit happen in real life as well.4
