  • I believe it is infatuation, until being able to be around each other more often in real life it will be nothing more. There is no way to know all the quirks you are able to find while actually being around someone. My current boyfriend, I met online... We told each other we loved each other, to come and find that once we were together in the flesh, we found out that what we felt was infatuation and love is something that will develop after learning fully about a person, how to work together with those quirks we didn't know about before and being able to share small moments we could have never had before. I believe it is possible to care VERY much for someone online though. :)
  • It is possible to feel a great deal of affection for something, and if you tread carefully you can base a good relationship on something that has been created online. But it's important that you are aware of the fact that what you see online isn't exactly what you get. I thought my ex was everything I saw online, and more importantly, that she wasnt what I didnt see. It turned out to not be the case, and I wasn't prepared for it at all. Which pretty much ruined it
  • there is no such thing as loving online , maybe you feel like this person is the dream that i was waiting for , but when you meet that person and get to know him well you descover that that person is defenetlly not your type. i`ve tried it in my personal experience that feeling is so painful beleiveme. i mean suddenly you discover that you wasted your time on nothing !!
  • There are both good endings and bad endings and in one sense not that much different then getting to know a person on the telephone. Two true cases: My cousin met and married the man she met online. I met someone in chat (actually voice chat - and not on a dating site) and we became friends. Then it became time to cut the internet tie and talk on the phone. We got to know each other for close to a year and half before we met. We literally fell into each others arms and then lived together. And it became one of best relationships but reasons I won't say, we broke up (not lack of love) but still talk and visit. She doesn't live close to me - about a a 7 hour drive away, so anything is possible. Will we get back together? That's is a chance but the issues that divided us (again, not lack of love) but private and actually uncomplicated. That we will always be friends and have a bond - yes, in some way we will always keep room open in our hearts. Reality - if we don't get back together that space becomes smaller to allow another fully in. Last: My cousin broke up also and when they got back together, the rest is now history.
  • Yes, its possible. I meet my man online, and we clicked really quick. We had issues, yes. Meeting online makes knowing each other a slow process and full of ups and downs. Now adays people have webcams. I was able to see him do all sort of things. Cook, clean, meet people, even sleep. It was on most of the time. Now we need to jump to step two, meeting, and because we live really far from each other that will take a while, but we are doing so good so far.
  • I do beleive it is possible to fall in love with someone oneline. There are lots of types of love and many stages. Is the internet is so different to victorian times to when people used to write letters to each other without meeting because families arranged introductions ? I think whether it works out or not depends a lot on if people are being totaly honest with each other or not :)
  • Yes, it's very possible. You have the opportunity to really get to know someone's personality before meeting them. You are each on equal ground--no social/economic classes...no looks, nor anything--just personality. I am learning that you can discover a lot about someone over the internet and fall in love with that person's soul. However like any relationship, you do need to talk and eventually meet for that love to grow deeper.
  • I don't doubt the possibility ... as it would be easy to do given the wide opportunity to find someone you may never otherwise have been likely to meet without world wide web ... I will let you know if it happens to Moto ... ☺ ♥
  • I think you can become infatuated and the beginnings of love can occur. But, you really have to be able to look into the person's eyes, see the expressions, see the mannerisms while talking and touch before you really began to love. A lot can be communicated over the internet that can be misunderstood or taken out of context.
  • I didn't think I could do it. However, I know someone who is like my dream girl. I hope I can eventually meet her in real life.
  • I think that the seeds of love can be planted, but that the actual love will come from the chemistry and intimate interactions.
  • ONLINE?.. I DONT THINK THAT IT IS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE A PERSON CAN BE WHO EVER THAT WANT TO BE OVER THE INTERNET. I HONESTLY THINK THAT SOMEONE OVER THE INTERNET AND MAKE YOU FALL "IN LOVE" WITH THEM BUT THE THINGS THAT THEY SAY.. I GUESS MY ANSWER IS NO.. I DONT THINK IT IS POSSIBLE
  • its very possible, ive actually been through it and broken some hearts-- most of then were guys that i do know thru other friends but have never seen face to face.. i regret being too kind but then again thts me lol i agree with the whole being too infatuated and it can be a kind of love thats quite unreal and obsessive. but it depends on who it is and how he/she handles it.
  • very possible. now he's my boyfriend for over a year and no signs of slowing down.. :)
  • I know that it's possible because I've seen it happen. My first boyfriend was an Internet one, but now that I think about it, . . . it was infatuation. =/ Hmm. I guess it depends on the people.
  • Sure, it's also possible that they are on drugs, alcohol and believe in pink flying elephants
