My daughter who is 21 years old got involved with a man from London, they've been sweetheart for 3 yrs. They talked on phone, and chat on net. They're planning to meet this year.

yes definatly!! I think it works better if you are more mature though, but I find that online and long distance relationships help build trust up alot and also keeps the getting to know each other bit only on a certain level untill you meet. The closest friend I have ever had I met online. I think it's something that works for alot of people like me who don't speak to people much in real life.

Even though i had too many failed online relationships, i still believe that online relationships can work. I just think that it's a matter of just falling in love with the right person just like in real life. As long as there is trust and determination to meet as soon as possible then i guess the online relationship i the right track. Good luck to your daughter!

I think that it's possible to have an intimate relationship with someone online. I don't think it'd be easy for the people involved, but I think that it can still be possible for some people. However, the thing about online dating is that I don't think that it's meant for everyone. Not everyone could go through the challenges that online dating can present.

Personally I don't believe in online relationships as I don't think they are as natural as physical relationships. Although on the other hand, I have read some really lovley stories concerning people who have met online and have stayed together for years and eventually married and had children. Hope it works out for your daughter but remember to tell her to be careful as the net can be decieving

I believe in online relationship and it is not impossible to fall in love online. I have acquaintances who got married because of online dating, and chatting. As long as the two person are honest with each other it is okay and it is just like they are in real world. It is also important that they have to see each other too if they agree to meet.

Yes, why not? Are relations who really work, and net is a big space to know somebody who can be your mate. But is very dangerous too, i mean that there are so many people who want just play,make jokes, who are really liers, and a woman can suffer a lot if they are inlove. As in real, to net exist serious people and people who want just make other suffering.
