  • I'm sure people have fell in love with the idea of someone but true love that is, is something that can only exist once two people have met, at least once, people aren't the same up close as they are from afar.

    That's my view on it, however there have been rare cases, were what I have said would be wrong, but they are so few and far between that I wouldn't count them, as opposed to the majority.

    • i dont quite get what you mean by "the idea of someone"

      if you meet someone in real life, you also get "an idea of them"

      whats the difference?

  • Growing up I was a huge nerd (still am) and one guy I played online games with all the time asked for my number. I was like 15 so obviously I did. We talked every night for several months. I was crazy in love with him and it was heartbreaking because we both knew we could never meet in real life and see if we were even a match. I played it cool for most of the time, and we did eventually drift apart.

    Long story short, yes, you can fall in love online... but it's not all that great.

    I'm still friends with him today. He's great, we're cool and we have a great friendship. As an adult I know that he and I would have definitely broken up (for several reasons lol) but 15 year old me will always be in love with that 16 year old gamer from Ohio :)

  • In this modern day society, I definitely KNOW it's possible for two people to fall in love online.

    People already meet online for the most part. We email, look for jobs, text, etc. Almost everything these days is virtual. People can meet AND fall in love online.

  • Yes I do. The only girl I ever truly loved was online. The difference is that in real life, you get distracted by hugs, kisses, and sex which can create an illusion of love. When you talk to someone online without physical distractions, yet you still look forward to hearing their voice every single day for months on end, that is the sign of true love.

  • Saying "in love" is a very powerful thing. I don't know that this level of feeling can be achieved or not online.

    That said, I completely believe that people can develop a love for a person online, which in it's own right is really special. It's just not "in love."

  • Of course they can. My sister married someone she met on POF. com last year. I met someone on that same site and fell in love. We have been together for 5 months. Of course I met a lot of women that didn't go anywhere but that is what dating is all about.

  • I have fallen for a girl on here. We have been chatting for some while now. Her personality is amazing. I have the utmost respect for her and admire her attitudes to all things. I am hoping we will meet very soon.

    It has been mentioned in detail here already.

  • Yes, very possible, and Is... Possible, no Fairy tale about it.
    Over fours year ago, a man from Egypt found me on Facebook and we had started a whirlwind romance. After getting to know him and his family better on Skype, I then flew off to the magical land of Cairo where I stayed for 30 days. Things went so well I then returned 3 months later, where we ended up tying the knot at the Ministry of Justice. I remained for awhile, learning how to be a Muslim's wife.
    I am back in the states now, and although we are stayed married, LDR is One of the hardest Online to Have and to Uphold of any. It takes two special people to make the team effort and to have the patience, and if only One is making the concerted Effort, it can go dead like a duck in the water.
    I was Not the Team player, such as in the Good Second half, who Stayed Committed to the Online Commitment. My husband was far better, more loyal and with my own life, that I continued and even cheated on him, it put a big monkey wrench into our marriage, along with his family who still has this sour ball about me. I have not been to see him since I had left 3 years ago, for the Middle East is getting worse, but he continues to hang in there, loving me unconditionally, although we have many Breakups and Makeups.
    Yes, if someone Online as the right chemistry and you both get together to begin your Beguine of nursing and nurturing, it's Up to God and Mother Nature whether or not it is meant to be... Online or Off.
    With Facebook, my husband had always told me: I have never been through such Magic for me in my whole life.
    Good luck. xx

  • If you asked me this question 5 years ago I would have said yes.

    But now I think no.
    A relationship cannot be built online, sure you can have an emotional connection but how can you fall in love with someone you have never touched or even been in the same room with?

    This is just my perspective on the matter... my boyfriend he lives in the same town as me... in fact 10 minutes away via car but we actually met online and he knew people that I knew... we were friends first and then one night I just asked if he wanted to come on a night out with me and my friends (some of which he knew) and that's how we first met. Sure we got to know each other but the very moment I saw him right in front of me I fell for him... no still pictures and selfies.

    I have had online relationships before and it never worked out for me, sure I had a strong emotional connection with them at some point but nothing compares to the guy who can be right next to you in a heartbeat instead of the "I wish I was there xxx" text.

  • Well yeah it is possible... I never thought it was possible until I tried it... I thought it was a fantasy at the beginning and that people that fall in love online are "dumb" , ha! Little did I know that someday it will be my turn ! 🙈 ... I'm currently in a long distance relationship.. And its my first relationship.. Anyways yep its true and its possible 😊 but its a bit risky so u have to be careful at the beginning!

  • Some have fell in love.
    But, I don't think I can fall in love with someone I've never even met. I've had a crush, yes, but love? No, I don't think that will ever happen.
    I need to spend time with him, hug him and all. Without, this I don't think my feelings will develop for someone?

  • I believe it's possible but it doesn't even come near the experience and "butterflies" you have when you're about to fall in love with someone you know in real life and I wouldn't really consider the Internet a place to find the love of my life.

    • absolutely the feeling you get when you see that persons eyes can never be replaced by any online experience, even when you talk to the person on Skype, fb etc.
