Everytime i hear about online relationship i always ask myself does it really work?and then this past few days someone told me that he loves me already and im like speechless coz i dont wanna hurt him (if he was saying the truth) and i met someone online before (i can see it working if the couple is going to meet each other)but now he's back to his country and i still can never tell if its really possible to love someone online?i mean u cant kiss,hug or even touch him so i think it'll be hard to express yourself right?is there someone out there who is on that situation?please share and thanks in advance.

[b]yeah it is eve my friend is in relation with his guy for almost four years ...they had been chatting in the beginning ,exchanged phone numbers then they mate each other in some public place and where very comfortable with each other,comfortable with their likes and dislikes,it was weird rather at first but then they couldn't stay away from each other they are even today in good relation relationships always work if you arn't afraid of it weather its online or offline weather its inter racial or from different countries ...what matters is your commitment to each other of the souls !! on the other hand there are others who like to make fake profiles like a guy making a profile of a girl and having chat and like having this relation thing seducing the guy lol yeah guy seducing guy in face of women GAY!!!! hahaha .but its true another friend of mine was trapped in this way ! whatever it is you just need to be aware that the person is for real and not playing with your heart. anyways have a nice day happy earning

I met my husband online. But I can't say that we were 'in love' solely based on just chatting. We went on dates in person and everything as well. My best friend is 'in love' with a guy she talks to online...and has never met. I guess it depends on how easily you fall in love.

It's possible, but that takes a great deal of trust. My boyfriend and me don't even see each after he went to study outside of the country. Though he still tells me, he loves, but even I feel doubt on his words. All these questions would pop up, and the main one we fear is will he cheat on me? Through time I began to trust him because we try our best to go visit each other. Though from the looks of it, he is the jealous not me. Hmm...so it is possible to maintain a relationship online, but it takes a lot of effort as well as trust. If possible try visiting each other because even once a year can make a little difference. Sorry I can't provide much help.

why not, if penpal was possible before or phonepal while theres no internet around then why not online as online you can see and talk the person. you also have the option to check their profile by searching. theres nothing impossible when it comes to love, we must be thankful theres internet as we are able to talk, meet and love someone from other places.

Its impossible for me to fall in love online. I need to be with her to be able to fall for her. Yes it is possible to hear the voice of anyone through the net but I don't think its enough. But for others its still possible. I know someone who fall in love with a guy who she chat with in the internet and they are happily married for 5 years now. So it is possible. Not for me though.

To me, it is almost impossible to love someone online unless you are a geek and are on the computer every second. If something is not part of your life, you cannot really indulge in it. The same thing applies with loving someone online. You do not feel the person. You cannot hug the person. You cannot love the person. Also, the only time you will "see" each other will be online only when the other person is. It also depends on how you met them. If you meet them on facebook or something, the chances are that you are more likely to "love" them. On forum sites such as mylot where you cannot interact with the person a lot, it is almost impossible.

it is very difficult to maintain relationships when both of the people are far away,but if the relationship is true it will go on,so the relationship depends ont he type of affection for each other......

Hi yahweh my redeemer: I agree with you. This should be very difficult, specially because we are looking for physical affection. So it's difficult for some people to love someone but to not have the possibility to kiss or hug this person. And finally, even on these situations, loves can go on. I agree with you. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO

Yup, it is possible. I know a few who met online then met in person and then eventually got married. ;)

@ santosmarichris @ zsarhea Agree with you. Have known at least one couple who met online, met up and married.

Hi zsarhea: I have read some stories about couples that find the love of their lives here on their internet so I'd say, why not. If you open your feelings to someone else you can fall in love of this person, you can express with your words, and with your expressions that you love this other person. You can watch the person you love with a camera. But I think that for this, both parts should be totally honests or you'd fall in love of someone that thinks different in the physical life. I think that love depends on the persons so I think, no matter how you meet a person, love can grows up in these situations. Thanks for starting this discussion. Have a nice day. ALVARO

There is no harm meeting and falling in love online. You can't just be in love online. If you are really in love you need to meet up and decide whether realizing your love would work out. And whether that would be the best option for both of you. Obviously things would be a little complicated if distance and emigration is involved.

i don think that it is possible at all... we can make friends in internet but love is something more and than that.. so to me it is impossible to make love online.

i dont think that it is safe to like someone online,there quite many incidents hapenning here and there and everytime it comes up in the news also that people go on a chat and then meet eachother and then something goes wrong, i hope you understand what i am trying to convey you. so be carefull we will never know how the person is over online, not only to see but also his character, attitude and all.

Well it is possible. But I call them desperate. Falling in love online, on people that is pretty much stranger to you, and you only knew her/him online, is desperate.
