  • Fond of, yes. Love no. Can't really fall in love without at least associating a face.
  • Of course it is. You're getting their full personality and it really isn't very dissimilar from talking in person. My brother met his wife on a MMORPG (yes, I'm aware that it is slightly nerdy), but I love my brother and I know he loves his wife. He loved her enough to move to Alabama from California to marry her. I don't think I could ever fall in love with someone I only talk to online, but that's just me. It's certainly possible, which is why online dating sites are so popular.
  • Love will come to those that get the right 'vibe' from their loved one, you can make an informed decision about someone online but cannot get a 'vibe'!
  • If you use a webcam, it is possible. The net is a great tool for the shy or those who are not very confident in a real life situation. The chances of finding someone in a club or bar that shares your interests or have anything in common with is pretty slim, plus you are competing against loud music and so it becomes difficult to communicate on anything less than a superficial level. On the web, you can narrow your search and see if you and the person you like are comfortable with each other, from the relative safety of the pc screen. If everything seems tickety boo, you can arrange to go on a date, and see what develops. A word of caution, however, there are some weird people out there, especially on the internet, and although the person you speak with can sound like the most charming person in the world, they may not be what they seem. Remember Ted Bundy was a charming man. If you do arrange to meet, do it in a public place, and always tell someone where you are going, or better still arrange to go out in a group situation. If they seem reticent to do so, steer well clear, a genuine suitor would also be wary of meeting a relative stranger and would not blanche at common sense safety.
  • as long as ur not on some gay website.
  • Yes, i am married to the women i met online, we now have 2 kids as well.
  • yes it can happen, but not recommended for teenagers as there are preditors out there!
  • Yes. I know for a fact because it seems to have happened to me.
  • How do you meet him/her then? Internet? That happens all the time haha (that's what I just learned from my own uestion!)
  • yes .. i fall in love based on personality, i rarely feel physically attracted to a guy until i get to know them.
  • Absolutely yes!!! Having that person send a picture is critical as one needs to have a face to go with the thoughts they send you. You do need a dialog such as a snail mail pen pal
  • A type of love yes. I full fledged type of love that has much chance of being long lasting and involves all parts of a relationship, no.
  • Yes you could get on with some one really well on the phone or net and fall in love with them.I really believe you can :)
  • yes it happened to me as i got to know him on the net and then we met. And now he is my fiance :). so yes it can happen. I should edit this..He is no longer my fiance..oh well life goes on.
  • Sure. If you aren't one of the few people who places how a person looks higher on the priority list than anything else.
  • No..intrigue, infatuation maybe. I know people who "met" on the net and went on to fall in love and have a wonderful relationship (after they met in person and dated for a while). Real love grows with getting to know a person and being with them. EDIT: I misread the question...so I guess I will change my answer to yes. Sorry
  • Not only is it possible but it can and does happen - I met a guy, we became best friends, became more than best friends and after seven years of dating in person we got married - fast forward, in November 06 we celebrated 10 years together and this January 31st we celebratd our 3 year wedding anniversary. So it is possible.
  • Yes because I met a couple that met on WOW and a woman was stuck in a cave trapped by a big monster and the guy came and saved her. They have been married ever since. Just so you know the woman was 200lbs and the man was asian.
  • I think it can happen and be the 'real deal', but that that is very rarely the case. Some people get lucky and meet another trust-worthy, open person with whom they have wonderful conversations with. Indeed, many do argue that 'net dating allows people to draw a closer bond than normal, BECAUSE the physicality of the other person isn't always there as a distraction (or detraction). That said, I personally think that most relationships (not all) are more successful if the two people meet in "real" life. Merely my own opinion after trying out both sides of the argument and choosing which one worked for me. But with internet dating there is ALWAYS the risk of being lied to, manipulated, and in some cases, stalked. You never truly know who you are speaking to, and some people are very, very good at deceiving others over the net. My advice would be to use caution, but approach the situation with an open (but careful) heart.
  • Oh yes, it is possible. You do not have to touch them or have sex with them to fall in love with them. You either choose to love them or not. Most people, once they have written emails and learned everything they need to learn about the other person, fall in love with the personality traits of the other person. Keep in mind the old axiom: "Absence makes the heart grow fonder."
  • You should see some of the stuff that goes on here. I didn't even have that much imagination before I got an AB account :-)
  • Yup, because I fell in love with my current boyfriend, which I've met on MySpace. Now we live together, and are planning on getting married in the near future. :)
  • yes but not before you meet them.
  • Yes it is 100% possible, I have been married twice, neither were bad but neither were right. The man I fell in Love with on the Net was Defintly the Love of my Life, We lived together for two years. and Our Love Grew Stronger Every Day. I Lost my Baby 3 weeks ago
  • yes definately both me and my sis met our partners online and are still together
  • it must be because you are seeing people on tv all the time saying they have. I'd be a bit reluctant to though. How can you tell you have the true story of someone you have never seen heard of or know someone who knows them.
  • I think it is not possible for ME. I personally need to meet the girl face to face.
  • I know a few people that have. I wish!
  • yeah,but be careful there are many bad ppl around.
  • It's definitely possible. That's how I met my boyfriend, and now we live together. :)
  • yes, but not soley online. i think you can find a person online meet them and fall in love. however i dont think you can truely fall in love with words on a screen, they can be so carefully thought out, mis read or inaccurate. unless you actually meet the person you dont know for sure what you are getting.
  • yes it's possible! love really moves in mysterious ways and its up the persons involved how to flourish or nurture love.
  • I met my boyfriend online. We have been together for 3 years now, and we are in love. We didnt fall in love over the internet, but it was how we came to meet IRL. You can absolutely fall in love with someone you met online. If you are talking about someone you are just talking to online and have never physically met, I worry that both parties aren't always telling the truth about themselves, and then they probably love the ideas, but not the actual people. Its easy to say things you wouldn't normally say, online and therefore are more likely to "become" someone not like yourself.
  • Of course. It lets you get to know the person mentally, well I think it does. I'm actully falling for some one as we speak, or as I write this answer. It let's you talk to the person with out getting to embrassed about what you are trying to get to know about he or she. I think it's a great way to get to know somebody.
  • Love may happen any place any time in any form.
  • No, because you can't see them and interact naturally with them online.
  • I didn't think it was possible a month ago, but I have changed my mind. Yes, I do think it is possible. But it takes plenty of time and communication.
  • delete sorry
  • Nope. I've meet a couple of guys online through a dating service and they we're all duds. My sister-law meet her boyfriend online and it's a relationship I seriously doubt. He was married and lives in another country. My friend did meet somebody she's in love with, but time will only tell if it's truely right. For me I need that face to face first impression to see if there's a spark. And the net doesn't give that to me.
  • My fiance and I started talking on-line when I was 13 and he was 15. We were really good friends, and then all the sudden I was head over heels in love with him. I think I had only seen one or two pictures of him at that point. He said he loved me and I was absolutely infatuated with him and started saving up money to fly to see him (he lived in Pennsylvania and me in Nebraska). When I finally had enough, I think it was too real for him and he broke things off... Lol, I was so depressed I started going to counseling. When I was 16, I finally started dating other people, but never really got over him and we remained best friends, which made it even harder for me. But when I was a senior, he broke up with his girlfriend of 2 years and finally gave me a chance. That was three years ago. Since then, I moved to Pennsylvania to be with him, and now that he has graduated from college, he moved to Nebraska to be with me while I finish my degree. We are engaged to be married on Christmas Eve, so yes, I can tell you, it truly is possible!!
  • Yes I met my boyfriend online and we love each other and have been together for about a year and are now engaged!
  • I feel in love with an online friend once and it didnt work out for me... so I guess it doesnt work out all the time. ANd alot of times people lie because this is the internet and there are alot of bad people out there, so its best to be careful if you dont know the person too much.
  • sure can, ive been with my fiance now for 4 years. i lived in nc, and moved to ohio to be with him!!!
  • Love happens in all shapes and forms so go for it! But just remeber -- the person may be different in real life! They could be lying about their age or even be a different sex if they have never shown you an honest picture of them! So be careful -- love is such a powerful thing and gets people into trouble alot! I wish you and your love life all the best!
  • my friends mom got married to someoe they met on line it all depends
  • Yes, it's possible - but rare.
  • Yes it is possible.
  • maybe after having many 'no love a all' such interacterations (NOT relationships).
  • its kinda a long story but for all intents and purposes I met my boyfriend through Facebook. I had mistaken him for someone else (I crashed on a friend of a friend's couch one night and wanted to figure out who, and we started talking), and well I think we're pretty stable now. We met up only a few weeks after initially talking online.
  • I say YES totally. You can love someone that you meet online. Now "in love," is a different detail to the situation. I have been talking to someone online that I love dearly. I love his personality, thoughts, mind, and soul. He is overseas right now so it's not like we can meet right away. I know he is real because we have used webcams, lots of phone calls, mail, email, online chat, and LOTs and LOTs of pics. I think about him constantly and crave for the day we can finally meet when he comes home. Do I know for sure that things will work out when he gets home? No, but I am willing to chance that with the way I feel now. Everyone has a soulmate and it shouldn't matter of how and when we meet them, it just matters that our hearts are content and we give what we can.
  • i have met and fell inlove with my last boy-friend on the net, we met in person , fell inlove and we were more or less together for almost 7 years , so yes it is possible, but also be carefull, tell someone a close friend or family member.
  • I'm sorry. is impossible to meet someone online.because it hard for two of you guy to work it out.
  • Yes it is possible...But like everything in life you have to be careful.
  • Well. Maybe. Personally I could not fall in love with someone I have never met. I might be interested in the person, but not in love. I feel that you need to meet the person face to face first, to check out how it is in real life. The person may be a lot different.
  • I DO believe it is possible...it happened to me once upon a time. I was young, she was younger...we talked for close to a year before meeting, and she was as sweet and pretty as I had imagined. We dated on and off for 2 years before I moved away (for work). Things never really worked out in the end, but that was only because of circumstances, not because of how we felt for each other. To this day I can honestly say that I'm still in love with her, and if you asked her she'd tell you the same thing. So yes, it is possible, and if done right (and carefully), you may end up with the love of your life!
  • Yes. I met my boyfriend online, and I definitely love him.
  • hmm yes, its much better because you will first like the person with their personality rather than looks but like what other people said be careful because there are a lot of wierd and hideous people hiding behind their keyboards and monitors.. i am inlove with a man i am talking and met in the net (online game) for 3 years now and believe it or not i have only seen him in 2 different pictures and not in cam even once and only heard his voice in the fone 2 or 3 times for a few seconds but i stil fell inlove with him, because of his strong personality and stubborness..
  • The odds f physically meeting are a lot smaller, but I know a couple who married that met online from opposite ends of the country.
  • I guess I'm not sure about falling in love with them without meeting them??? I met my boyfriend online but we met face to face within a couple of weeks because we had great conversation and were only 50 miles apart from each other. He told me after a couple of months he was falling in love with me - scared me to death! But it wasn't long after and I started feeling the same way. I can't imagine not having him in my life at this point so anything is possible but just be careful when or if you meet them - like people have said there are definately some weirdos out there!
  • I have meet sumone online i really like but i think its werid tht i can like sumone ive never physically meet but it does happen and we use webcam and stuff.ITS the new lastest thing meetin pple online
  • I guess so. I know a lot of people who have met online and are happily married. Although I am sure that it doesn't always work out that well.
  • Definitely! The man I love (I am sitting next to him now) I fell in love with over the internet. And I could not imagine a better person to love.
  • Yes, it is possible. It happens every day.
  • Uh huh! I'm guilty of it. I now live with him and I am happier than I have ever been in a relationship.
  • Of course! There is a really big stigma placed on online relationships, and they get a bad reputation from people who abuse it, and who aren't careful. As long as you're careful and guarded in the beginning of talking to the person, talk to them on the phone, use a webcam, see photos of the person, or some other kind of proof, of course it's possible. It's just a medium of meeting a person where you have to be more careful than when you meet someone in person. To me, it can be a more personal way of meeting someone, because you are learning eachother's personalities and becoming attracted to that aspect of the person. Many people who are married today may have met in person, but they grew to love eachother first through sex, and then through personality, but that is accepted. It won't be accepted, and be prepared for ridicule from those you least expect it from, but if you're careful and open, and above all, HONEST (believe me, no matter how hard it is, be honest right away in the long run it will be easier), it can work out well for you. Just be careful!!! Good luck. :)
  • I met my Boyfriend of two years on myspace... And I had never dated anyone from online before I was kinda against it but one day he messaged me we began talking and never stopped!
  • I think it’s a much better way of falling in love…if you take the old conventional way of meeting people, you will normally approach someone based on looks, start dating and eventually when you get to know the person and realize that they are not as beautiful internally as externally, even their looks start to become ugly. Now at least you get to know someone for who they are, and if you really get to like them and you get a photo and there is no physical attraction you know that the person is not for you….its easier to look pass physical appearance once you know someone, than to look pass personality after you met some one. So get to know someone online, and if you fall in love with their personality, hope for the best and ask for a photo, if you have physical attraction…well, bingo then. I know that I will travel across the world to meet my love…
  • yes...it happened to me, but unfortunately he had to move away. (job related)
  • Yes it is. The only problem is internet is kinda like reading a book. When your talking to the person, the get into character (not always their own) and you can write your own half of the book. Sometimes it can be hard to strike up conversation in the real world but you find it easy online. Just be careful. People arn't always what they seem, although a lot of them are! :)
  • i honestly think that it is posible i know i am only young but i met someone online i have been with him for a year and now engaged and very very happy couldt of found this much love with someone that i had already knew
  • Of course, i'm living proof, so is my uncle and his wife and so on..:)
  • I believe it is. I met a guy online who I have come to love. We both plan to eventually meet one day. He lives in Ireland however, and I, in the U.S. We've been talking for over 4 years and I must say we get along like we were twins split at birth, and I do believe I love him more than anyone I've ever met. I never get bored of talking to him like I do most people who I interact with from day-to-day, and I have a strange feeling of betrayal when I consider dating someone who lives near me. It may sound unhealthy or nerdy, but I believe I've fallen completely for him and I'm content this way. So as for me I think it's perfectly normal to fall in love online. It's easier than in real life considering you can speak freely and with a wider variety of people making your chances of meeting someone who suits you much more likely.
  • This reminds of one of my mother's friends who only dated married men, because she did not have to entertain time or put up with their......(you know what), play with them and send them home to their wives. These were according to here the best relationships ever.
  • I am very much in love with a girl I met through VampireFreaks.com.
  • not until you've actually physically met them--no.
  • I've heard of crazier things. Why is it that people turn their noses up in the air when someone goes into a relationship with a cyber friend? Pervs, idiots and mass murderers all have different styles dont they?
  • I know it is. My boyfriend and I have known eachother online for about 9 months. We talked and became really good friends. I always liked him and I could tell he liked me too (we flirted like crazy) but he was never able to come out and say it. He had a girlfriend and was in a different state. I figured it was just a crush, plus he was 6 yrs older than me. I thought there was NO chance. Then one day something happened (he caught his gf cheating) and a week later he dragged it out of me that I did like him as more than a friend and he told me he felt the same way. It's 2 months later and we both agree that we've never felt this way before. We are happy and we plan to be together for the rest of our lives.
  • yes it is.
  • Yes. I met my man online(through a friend though) and we've been together ever since. We love each other dearly. The relationship has lasted 4 years.
  • sure do...i met my husband online.
  • Never tried it, but could be possible.
  • I would say no...because I know I couldn't ...
  • I don't see why not ...I've fallen in love in sewer once...long story... =)
  • No I don't think it is possible if the relationship is strictly an online one. I think it is possible to fall inlove with the image you have built in your mind of what this person is like but to trulky fall inlove with the person I think requires having an in person physical relationship. (I'm not talking sex here so take your mind out of the toilet) Without physically meeting face to face I think it is nearly impossible to truly fall inlove with the person.
  • Online is really like watching someone from behind a curtain, you don't truely know who your looking at/dealing with. A voyeur experience, sort of like this is. You get a crush, because its exciting, then thats it. If you want to fall in love, go meet people face to face...talk to them, listen to them, and hang out. Trapped up behind a computer isn't really meeting a person...people lie.
  • Of course, I do
  • Yes, its very possible!
  • Highly possible but more likely you are falling in love with an idea :o)
  • No not at all. I think it is possible to fall inlove with the image of the person we have built up in our minds but to truly fall inlove with someone there has to be physical contact and not sex necessarily. I'm talking about face to face contact seeing each other up close being able to hold hands and hug for real not just words on a screen.
  • yes it is possible. my sister did it and now her and her lover live together. just make sure the person you're in love with, is the real person you think he/she is. don't let yourself get hurt. [:
  • slightly possible... but not too common
  • I think it is actually a good old fashioned way to get to know what someone is about, their beliefs, strengths, values, and opinions. This used to occur during letter writing many, many years ago. The magic or chemistry has to happen though upon meeting someone in person.
  • Certainly. I do not recommend it, though. Many of the Internet relationships I've heard of have failed.
  • I believe it is possible.
