Everything in life is as serious as you make it. After that, it's just opinion and making what you will of what you've been given. Some people will lie and all of that, but that only matters if you care and find it worthwhile to begin with. In general, low expectations followed up with a period of self-questioning and ridicule will help. If it's still worth it at that point, try. There's no guarantee it'll work out, but there's no chance it'll work if you don't try. You're a female under 18, though, so I would say for you that you shouldn't take part in online dating unless you tell someone you're close to. In general and to sum things up, though:
True feelings through chat? Yeah, easily, but doesn't mean that anyone will believe those are your true feelings or you believe anyone else, as is the reality of the online world much of the time.
What person is like? It's not really imagining so much as making them into how you read them. That's why it can and is better to talk to them, at least sometimes. You can read what someone says and read it completely different from the way they actually say it, if they say it at all. Some people are not at all like they are on the internet and others are exactly the same and some are kind of neutral. Figure out what they're like. It's like reality but with an added layer of questioning, really. You never know if anyone says what they mean when you're actually dating. You find out over time. Same way here. Only, if you get bad vibes, get the hell away. Some dangerous people in the world. Real life and internet alike.
Opinions have been given. One of my poorer responses, actually.2
