Love is one of nice things in the world ,unlike traditional love,more and more people fall in love with BF or GF in the internet.for example ,Two month ago ,I met a nice girl in the internet,she and me all love teas ,I believed that I falled in love with her,but my friends all told me that internet love is not true love and you will fail in the future.Now what can I do?Do i believe internet love ? what is your opinion?Do you believe internet love?

O yes I believe because I met my husband thru the internet , we met in a game room and we lived 14 hours apart we spent many hours on the internet gettting to know each other than we finally met half way and spent a few days together.To make a long story short we are now happily married and have been together for five years. Sometimes it dosnt work out for some people it takes a lot of commitment from both sides for it to work.

Yes and why not? Internet is just one way how does love approach you. Beneath the internet connections you will find true people and through frequent chatting you developed your feelings towards the person. I do remember some are falling in love in loveletters through penpal, so how much more in interenet wherein response of each person is quicker, and have more ways to see the person not only in picture but also in webcam. I also got a friend of mine and a cousin who have met their hubby in internet chat. So what do you think? It is possible, right? So, let just your feeling flow. IF you are happy with it, go ahead as long as you are not harming anyone.

I don't know but I think internet love has a low foundation for a lasting relationship. I just based this on an experience of mine when I was so young then. I tried having a relationship in the internet but then it was so short-lived and then who knows if he has other girls so I could say that it's like it was just a fling or a not really real love for me.

I agree. Actually the love is a very simple thing.It is about a man/woman falls in love with each other.If the love is true and we all are sure about the feeling sparked over the internet,let us try!do not afraid,Be sure trusting each other!

Nah, don't think it will work out. People dan't even see each other, that's why. But there maybe exceptional cases.

I don't see why not. Do you ask your friend the reason? And do you agree with it? I think as long as the both of you feel it's okay, than it wouldn't be a problem.

I don't believe internet love and I agree with your friends.Internet love is not true.Maybe two month later,you will find she isn't a nice girl,or she disappear forever. I also don't think you have falled in internet love.You just like the experience chatting with the girl in the internet. Don't be warry.

I don't believe in internet love, but I'm sure that it can be a start for a love relationship. If you get to know someone, from other town and, because of making acquaintance one another in the internet you can begin a love relationship... And i'm sure because it was in internet that I meet my husband, but of course we did a lot of real talking before we got in love.

Yes i do believe. Whats wrong in that. But you have to speak to each other very frankly, if you present your self as you are and who you are seriously then there is no harm as far as think. I dont like faking, because that wont be of much help isnt? It isnt a timepass, and if its a timepass then there are lot better options. I have 3 great internet friends, lets see till where the rel;ationship goes !! '+' Happy Mylotting.

Yeah, i found my first love in internet. But we only make it 5-6 years but after that she is missing. Because she live on another island, so it like long distance relationship. It depends on you, how to keep your relationship with her. You must keep in touch with her, and have a good communication. I believe internet love.

dont' worry.. it's possible to obtain true love from the internet.. don't listen too much to your friends.. i think they have no idea what's love.. have you ever wonder.. people from all places.. meet together.. and somehow.. some get to be couple.. and some failed to be couple? i think internet is not a problem at all.. in fact.. internet might be better as we get to type everything out from our heart.. that's what i always do.. i'm typing from my heart.. not from my mouth.. so i don't have to use sweet words to make the girl happy.. i just need to understand her little.. and love everything about her =)

Ye, i most certainly DO believe in internet love. Meeting someone online is sometimes a better way to meet them because you begin to learn who they are before you ever see them. You can make an opinion on them based on who they are rather than based on what they look like. Once you get to knwo each other better, often times pictures are exchanged. You thensee this person you have been talking to and it can be magical. You can fall in love online just like you can fall in love anywhere else.

This is my opinion... I never believed in finding love on the Internet. I thought there were only creepy perverts on it until I found myself using the Interent more and more talking to people and making friends! I met my boyfriend online and we have been together for almost a year and half now. It sometimes is hard because we can't see each other all the time. He lives in a different country and is a 5 hour drive away but we make time for each other. We talk almost every nith on the phone, we email and message each other here on mylot.... We make it work. Love on the Internet is just like regular love in real time. If you don't put energy into it it will fall apart. If you have a girl that you love and she loves you in real time but you never see each other then it isn't going to work out but if you make time to see each other then it does work. It is the same as finding a girl or boy friend online. Also my boyfriends brother met his wife online and I think they have been happily married for several years now! I have met them and they seem like they are newly weds and very in love with eachother still. Love will work out no matter what if it is love. Don't listen to your friends and people around you, listen to yourself.

Internet love, no. Internet friendships, yes. I feel that it's ridiculous to consider a serious relationship with a person you've never met in person. If you have met them before, or they've moved away and you only communicate online, then sure. If you want to know if a relationship is going to "fail" because it's an online relationship, you might as well go ask a weatherman. It's more of a sensationalist media-induced paranoid prejudice that all online relationships are doomed to fail. Just because you met someone online is no reason to automatically assume the worst. However, more weight should be given to the in-person relationship over the online relationship, as the persons you physically interact with bear more influence. Consider this: it's a misconception to differentiate between online and in-person as "real life". When online, you are still communicating with actual, living people. Another misconception is the idea that people will always lie to you online. This is more sensationalist superstition. While it obviously happens, there's very LITTLE privacy on the internet like we might think. However, something good comes out from all of this privacy. In actuality, people tend to be more honest and upfront about how they feel (although they may not always understand this). The illusion of privacy eliminates societal constraints on people, allowing them to be more honest with themselves and others. Love is not something to be taken lightly, of course, and it takes time. Love is more than just fulfilling our needs in social interaction. And for privacy, the real problem comes when unscrupulous entities try to gather intel through unethical means in order to pass unfair, prejudiced judgements on others.

Yes, I believe in it, I met my guy in a chatroom 2 years ago, we met online in Feb., he flew down to see me and spent a week, in March, and I moved up North to be with him in April. We have been together for 2 years. And I couldn't ask for more in a man than he has been. When we met on line we lived 1600 miles apart, we chatted, talked on the phone, everyday, several times a day. He would call just to see how my day was going, and he still does, even though we live in the same house! You take a chance with love either way, meeting face to face or online. You never know how it will turn out.
