Hey guys, I think most of you have made friends online through forums and chat rooms !! I always thought that its just fun and we cannot continue for long !! But a friend of mine met this guy online a year back and since then they have been chatting and exchanging mails !! To my astonishment she told me that she love this guy whom she never met and wanted to marry him !! Finally few days back they met and got engaged and soon they are going to get married !! I have seen such things in movies but now it is happening in real !! What do you think guys, can people really know each other without even meeting ? what do you think of online dating ? Did some thing of this sort ever happened to you ? please share your views and opinions !! Thanx and happy mylotting :)

I think people can find each other in many ways, but I think you have to take the time to get to know someone in person before you decide to spend the rest of your life with them. People can be very different online, when there is no one looking at them directly in the face or sharing financial burdens with them. Good luck to your friend and her future husband.

Well i am quite apprehensive about online dating and your friend was quite lucky and lots of good wishes for her married life..Nothing like this has happened to me and I dont think I will ever be so blindly trusting to anyone whom I haven't met..Its difficult to understand a person through online dating and moreover there is so much of scam..Everyone is not lucky like your friend and once again good wishes to her..

Convey my regards to ur friend :) I feel this is much better than d love that blossoms by seeing or spending time in person. I don't have any experience in dis ;) But td thing is usually love shud not come by external appearance. They shud have better understanding and their attitude will spk in letters. Feel this wud be more genuine. D only digusting factor many ppl use fake profile and try to cheat. Gud that ur friend met d right person at d right time. Let me toast them for their wedding!! :)

i hope she knows what she is doing. i personally don't think u know anyone till u have lived w/them. i don't know how you fall in ove over the internet. i think that is silly but what do i know. i have never talked to anyone in a chat room or on a dating service or whatever u want to call it. i would be leary of doing that.to have never met him is strange. hope it works out well for them.

that is really cool! I have the same post as to asking if we could realy find THE ONE online. And I received a lot of answers saying it's possible, why not? I have had couple of boyfriends online but it didn't last, maybe I was just not lucky that time. I even have met a guy which I thought was true but not, he seems to be so cool on the net but when we start dating things got worst and so it ended up into nothing but a broken heart. I still don't trust people I meet online, but it's worth a try, I guess we just have to be lucky to find the RIGHT ONE eh? have fun mylotting!

Yeah buddy online you can portray yourself what ever the way you want, you will only know the real person only after you meet him !! Its good that after meeting online you tried to date and knew what kind of person he is. Hope you can find your real one ONLINE soon lol :)

Guys ... lemme share with you this! this incident of yours that has happened a year back ... I am living that in real life since last 8 years now. ME & my now husband (married for the last 4 years) met on internet (on a chat site) some 8 years back, & after chatting for 6 months, without seeing each other decided to get married to each other. We took our decisions seriously, made a point to give a real form to the virtual love life of ours, & took it forward to the extent of actually marrying each other. I must say here, that my husband waited for 4 long years, for me to complete my studies & stuff & then we had to convince both the parents & WOW ... it was just a dream coem true for us in 2004. One thing which i should say is important here, is that, both the poeple involved should be very very transparent & serious of any of the aspects of them or their lives whih they share online. & above all TRUST lays the foundation of all strong relatioships!!

thats absolutely a great thing that has happened in one's real life. i have seen a movie where they make love over phone and letters never meeting each other. Finally they meet each only towards the end of the movie. Probably a unrealistic thing has comoe true which sets a new trend for love. happy mylotting

It appears to me an exceptional case, where your friend found her spouse through on line dating. I doubt if online dating really works for everyone. If you are going for on-line dating you both need to be in the same city or nearby city, so you both could meet. If you are just exchanging mails and chatting on-line, you do not get the actual and real picture of the other fellow. Even if you happen to talk to him/her on the phone, you cannot access about the nature of the person. You are required to see him/her in person to make the relationship successful. Best of Luck to your friend for her married life!!

I think theres nothing wrong about marrying someone you meet online as long as you know each other very well, and you meet and see each other. There are many people who had this experienced and they are happy. But it is not 100 percent of people who meet online are successful in their marriage seem as the people who don't meet online and got married. You can not guarantee also that if you got married to a person you personally see everyday, you will never have problems in your marriage. Marriage is just like gambling. You have to deal with it.. or lease you will be defeated. So online or off line, way of getting married it all depend upon the two people who are in there. They have to work on the relationship so that they will be happy in their marriage.

I don't know, some people can and others probably not. I initially met my husband online through a chatsite and after a few months we met in person. I think there is only so much you can learn about one another online but not enough to really know that other person so after we met and dated for a while, even moved in together, we got engaged after a year, married a year after that, moved countries, had our son, moved countries again and now still happily married.

While I have never done it or persued online dating of any typer. (Happily Taken) I think it's neat that your friend found someone to share her life with. I think the one upside to meeting someone online is that you really get to know them. You are talking and there is nothing else. So you really can focus on getting to know who the person is. But at the same time you run the risk of them misleading you and not knowing them in person you don't how they actually act or their mannerisms. But to each his own and happy thoughts to your friend and her new relationship! :-)

Well I met my husband online - myspace to be exact:-) so I think it is possible of course! Although we did go on a date after 2 weeks of meeting online, but it definitely is possible. Just have your friend play 200 questions! Ask as many questions as possible. You can never know enough.

Well I personally think that Any person cann't understand other person that much by just having chatting and Email exchanges on internet.If those persons are only internet friends then its OK but to choose that person whom you never met face to face as your life-partner is just stupidness.Because before marriage Knowing each other and understanding the feelings of each other is very necessary for a life long relationship.In our Every day life we hear so many cases where two persons got married because of internet but their relationship ended on a sad note of divorce or things like that. So before getting involved in any these sorts of relationships think thousand times first then go further and I would rather suggest not to go even a single step forward for that cause

Ummm...this is surprising! I've heard of dating a person whom you've met online, but marrying them in a year? Wow! They must really have connected.

I have belonged to a certain discussion site for 6 years. Over that time, I know of 3 couples that met on the site and have since married. It is not a dating site. Its a site where regulars get to know each other over time, much like any social situation. I think meeting people on line is not much different than meeting people IRL.

to a certain extent, i think people can know someone else on the internet as long as both parties are honest (of course, there are a ton of scammers out there!) but i have a friend who met a guy on the net (he is in the us and we are in canada) and while they are in love and got married about 2 years ago, they havent any more than 6 months together due to government issues (neither government will recognize the other person!)
