it happened to be that there are many people now falling inlove online. they are many miles away and so the computer with webcam and headset helps with better communication. in time, they will meet. well, i believe meeting in person is still the right and best thing to judge if you two love each other. knowing the differences of attitudes, culture and beliefs will be a great deal. do you really think it could last?

Yeah this is in the wrong section but that's okay. Interesting subject actually, yes I believe it is possible.I have heard of so many storys about this and it always works out. So i think anything is possible because love is a hard thing to understand.

I think this might be posted in the wrong section :) Anyhows I met my boyfriend and spoke with him for 10-15 minutes before I had to leave for home, he tried to find my contacts and ended up sending a mail to my coach to ask for them, my coach forwarded me the e-mail and i responded to it. Then after alot of e-mail conversations we exchange IM contacts and end up talking alot, and felt in love. This happened 2 years ago and we are still together :)

Yes i do think it is possible. I met my fiance on "connectingsingles.com" and we are still together and very happy we even have a 3 year old together. Hes been great we talked about 2 weeks online met and that was it i knew he was the one before i even met him. Hes perfect and heaven sent.

Wow, that's awesome. I never heard of the site ConnectingSingles. How long have you been together? It sounds like a great match. I've thought about meeting someone online but I'm too chicken- you never know if the person you meet is who he says he is. I have made a few good women friends online but would hesitate before befriending a man. You just can't be too careful- though it looks like it worked out for you!

it is possible for people to fall in love through online contact, I mean there is this point where emotions would build up the more you get to know about the person..^_^

I 1st met my bf online,best bf I,ve ever had. I think it can work yes. Luckily for me and him we didn't live all that far apart even if we did meet online.

It is possible.But the probability of staying together is less.Don't think I'm too mathematical by using the word probability.I think that is the apt word.The chances are very less.We can see that nowadays most of the love marriage ends up very soon.Those are the people who met in person.If it is the situation for those people then how the person met in online can be together.There are some people who are still, but the chance is less.Thats what I need to say.Some may be true ,some may not.So meeting the person and then deciding is the best.Without meeting it is difficult.This is my opinion.Bye.Take care.

Yes i truly believe, i can say falling inlove in chat and in person most likely to be the same.In some cases might have some exemptions but i believe that falling inlove online makes sense and it exist.I have that experience about this and so i am considering that falling inlove online is possible. Happy lotting!

I think falling in love online is possible. It's perfect for people who are very shy. I have had three boyfriends who I've first met on internet. Being distant in the first moments means to have more time to know the other and think if its good for you or not. But of course, a relationship can not remain web based forever.

Human can fall in love anywhere, love has no boundation bcoz as we know that love is blind so love could be spread either offine or online, love is the game of feeling and affection.

I do believe that falling in love online could really happen. It is best to meet the person first before engaging too much. There are too many fake people out there. Other than that, if you're true to the person and vice versa, I'm sure that online relationships could turn into something fruitful.. :)

Normally, I would be skeptical. But it happened to my cousin and his fiance. They met on an internet forum, and hit it off. They exchanged emails for a very long time, then telephone calls. Eventually, she hopped a plane and flew across seven states to come see him. Now they have a house together and are getting married. It is quite remarkable how much this is happening these days. Although I think I would be very wary of meeting someone on the internet personally. You never know what the person is really like. I wouldn't like to try eharmony or another such site, and especially wouldn't automatically trust anyone I met on a forum. But it worked for my cousin.

yes!!! and i'm one of them...lol. i met my husband through ym and were now on our 5th year. with webcam and voicechat nowadays, long distance relationship is not so hard like it was before. with regards to the question if it would last?...it depends upon the couple, if they'll work enough to keep the relationship intact...then it will sure to last no matter how miles apart they are.

Maybe last time it's safe to have online relationship, but now I don't think it's going to work. Everytime I open the newspaper, mostly is about teenage girls got raped or kidnaped by the person who they met through online. I personally don't really believe it. It's just too dangerous to meet someone you just know through online.

Yes, i do believe in falling in love online.. i met my hubby through an exclusive website five years ago.. hubby's a real cutie so i sent him a personal message... i did not expect of getting a reply from him since there were more beautiful and gorgeous girls out there.. after a week of talking online, he asked for my mobile number and we decided to meet up near my place... the first meeting was funny yet memorable... then we became a couple after few dates.. the first six months were difficult because of some ex gf's issues.. i found out he went to an out of town trip with his two sisters and his pathetic ex girlfriend.. i was deeply hurt.. i broke up with him but he said sorry and asked for a second chance... i gave our relationship another shot and it was worth it.. we are still together.. in fact, we are going to celebrate our fifth anniversary next week (March 4). Hubby booked an overnight stay at one of the hotels in tagaytay and i am so excited about it.. we have planned our itinerary and for the first time we are going to try something new and something adventurous, zip line :). yipee! i can't wait...

This is is the wrong category to post in, but yes. I know i did. However, I doubt seriously whether it is going to be a permanent relationship, but we have been together a year now, so yeah it is certainly possible.

No you don't really know who you are talking to. How many times have we seen young teenage girls meeting someone online and then they are kidnapped and killed. Even if they send a picture it could be someone else. I don't mind talking to people on My Lot, or boards with my favorite shows, and my favorite team The Colts but I wouldn't go out with anyone. You have to be very careful with what goes on in this internet world. I would rather meet in person it is much safer. Yes I am aware bad things can still happen meeting face to face but online NO WAY.

No i don't believe love in online. As i don't believe so i think it couldn't be last. In my experience i saw my friend they got hurt or they make fool to fall in love online. But some are exceptional. But people should not take risk.

Oh yes I do, but it takes time. I met my fiance online 4 years ago and we talk everyday, and discovered stuff about each other, got to know each other so well and we fell in love. We stayed that way for almost 3 years and finally decided to meet. We just know that we love each other so much when we first saw each other. It's like the first time you meet him but you already know him in and out. And you just don't want to be apart from that person ever again. Now we are engaged and is getting married.

My husband and I met and fell in love on line. The way we saw it, we were getting to know eachother from the inside, without all the superficial factures that come up when people fall in "lust." By the time we met face to face, we already knew eachother on the inside. There was a lot of chemistry when we met, and we were already friends from the three years we spent on line and on the phone. We were married a few months later, and have been married for almost three years.
