I actually met my boyfriend online. He wrote to me at a community one night and I answered. We talked for a few weeks and started to fall in love with each other online. Then we decided to meet each other, I can still remember that night. I was going to met him at the train station and I was so nervous! I already knew what he was like but I was afraid that he wasn't going to like me. He did, and we've been a couple for 2years now and he moved in with me a year ago :)

though i don't believe in online relationships and sometimes, i thought of it as superficial.. i don't know its just my opinion.. in your case, you had already establish a very good relationship with your boyfriend, good job! keep it up...

I love this quote from Dr. Seuss: "you know you're in love when you can't sleep, because finally, Reality is much better than your dreams." :) I think you will be able to figure out yourself if you're truly in love, when you literally can't sleep, can't stop thinking about him/her, you love all her/his ways.

Yes if that person is always there for you whatever you've been through he is still there even if you committ mistakes I mean worst mistakes, if he accepts you for what you are, who you are.

When I met my husband, he was clearly not my type. He was however the one. I was unsure at first but I learned as we went along. My true love has the same values as me, he believes in the same thing I do, he is my cheerleader and is always proud of my accomplishments no matter how small they are. He trusts me unconditionally and is always my best friend. Those are ways you can identify your true love. Not by the way they look or how much money they have, but by thier ability to understand you and believe in you no matter what.

thank you.. in these days, you seldom find a man that would support you in everything you do and so expressive of his love for you... it always happen that your lover is your bestfriend...

If they always put your needs before their own and you can honestly do the same for them. That's how one can determine true love. True love is about giving selflessly for the benefit of the other party while not looking for anything in return. If a person can attain that in a romantic relationship they have definitely hit the jackpot!!!

ellebj, How true is 'true'? And if there is true love - does it means there are 'false love' too? So here's the truth: people decide how 'true' their love is by basing on their own construction of judgment. It is like the postmodernist perspective of reality (that we construct our own reality) - there is no uni vocal love that binds the superficial concept of 'true love' we gathered from the media - just much variation of the same concept, in which unfortunately is a belief that is susceptible to exploitation or obsessively held by blinded souls. The concept of true love is a classic deception. Love is 'true' by our making; it is not given true as our prerogative. Have a nice day.

oh... i'm new to that.. thank you for that information... i'm glad to have a comment from a postmodernist viewpoint.. in this times, people are divided to their own perception about things... the concept of true love is indeed classical.. it is already in our culture that in searching for a partner, we should seek for the right one for us, our match in heaven.. at somepoint, i believe in the love that was described by The Bible.. for me, it is the best description for what we call true love, the unconditional one, the one without any reasons.. tc!
