Have you ever fallen in love online?

I dipped my toe in that river once and got carried away by the current. I wouldn't call it love though, it's simply an infatuation. And an unrealistic case of one too, since you idealize your crush and fill in all the gaps with your imagination. That makes it seem as if the person is perfect. Not to mention - and I can't stress this enough - disinhibition, since you're not in person it makes you feel way more comfortable. Which makes you share more than you would to people in person. That gives you the false impression of an intimate connection.
I'm never going down that path again, my experience spanned across 8-months and it tore me up when I realized it had to stop, but made me /so/ much stronger too. I would never allow any girl I talk to on here or elsewhere to become more than a friend. With the exception of it actually having a chance (being able to be with each other in person).
I guess it could work if you ended meeting up very soon, and actually spent time in person. I'm happy for people who had ended up together. Because the Internet is much larger than your immediate area, so the chance of running into someone amazing is good.7
