when i was watching a show(it's topic is all about couples love),one of its guest was a couple who had fallen in love by the us of the internet. their story is like this: the girl was so depressed due to her brake-up with her ex-boyfriend so she sat down in front of her computer and suddenly created a blog about her(about what had happen with her love life),then suddenly a man answered her blog, she(the girl) was so touched by the comment(cause it seems the man was really concern for her),so they chated and chated for month's then the man suddenly asked the girl "will you marry me?",then their love life begun, so now i am asking you for you're own opinion, "is internet love a true love?"

I have often thought of this and said I would never join an online dating site. I haven't but I have some friends that I have met online where I have at times wished I had met before I met my husband. We have just hit it off right away and are great friends. I do think that people who meet on the internet must be cautious but I also believe that when you are talking to people online for months you get to see a glimpse of the person and you don't have the looks getting in the way of your thoughts of the person. After you have become that good of friends then looks don't really matter so much anymore. Although I realize there are webcams and all but it isn't the same! So Yes I think it can very well be true love.:)

I met my husband on an internet dating site. We chatted for months, first online, then on the phone. We would talk every morning when I got off work and he was just getting up for work. I lived in Florida. He lived in Ohio. After a couple of months of really high phone bills (lol) we decided to meet. I came to Ohio with every intention of visiting for a week and then going back to Florida. Instead, I have been here with him for three years, and happily married for two. Finding love online is one of the best things that ever happened to me. I'll never regret it.

Some people say that first sight love is true love.But for me the love which develop first in heart and then come in eyes is true love.When true love come in our life, our heart and mind is with us and there is no question of taking step back. Same thing is happened on internet also. When we chated with the person for long time then we are able to creat an image of that person in our mind. Our heart tell us everything that what is good or bad. hence I think true love is also possible on Internet.

No I would not call it true love, I would call it infatuation. How can anyone be in true love just chatting to someone. My opinion is you need to get to know the person. Also they can tell you anything they like and it could all be a load of crap. Nothing is like the real thing in person and living with them.

Love comes in different ways. By internet , in person or penpal... The question is can internet be a true love?? You will know the answer by what you feel. Some may find love in the internet some may not. It depends on the person who holds his/her heart...

yup, i've known a lot of people who are happily married and they met thru the internet. i like how craftcatcher put it, that you can actually fall in love with someone on the internet but then not be able to live with that person. the internet could just serve to be the venue where you two meet. but the rest is up to you. you have to really get to know the person upfront. it's so easy to be genuine online because you don't have to put up with all your defenses, which is why i guess a lot of people are into the online-dating thing. but to really come up with something solid and real, you have to meet up in person and be real with each other.

I met my husband on a penpal site. We met several times in person before we made any commitments though. We've been together for almost 9 yrs and very happy. I don't think you can truely know someone until you meet them in person, learn their bad habits and mannerisms. You may end up with someone you love but can't live with. Heartbreak! I would definitely recommend spending time together before committing to love.

I meet my soon to be hubby on Myspace of all places. I wanst really looking to meet people but to keep in touch with old friends. But then one day he had sent me a message and it took me a week to reply because I was busy and I wasnt really sure if I was going to send him a reply. So I did and we chatted and then we meet and we have been together almost 2 years. So I think internet love can really happen as long as both parties are honest. It can work.

My son found his wife on the internet. Sadly enough, they separated after three years and he is now in another 'relationship' with a woman he met on-line. They have not met face to face but it looks as though things might be headed in that direction. Personally, I would be very cautious. On line the person you are talking to can tell you anything they choose about themselves, be it truth or fiction. They could be completely honest with you or hide things from you that you could be hurtful or harmful. An acquaintance of mine went to meet the person she had been involved with on the net only to find that he was married and had a history of abusiveness. Be careful. There are gems out there to be sure, but there are also duds.

i would say yes. if they are on 24/7, the distance shouldn't be an obstacle. but the bad side to this is that they don't get to see each other and embrace each other
