Hi All, We have heard instances of where people have met their old friends after a long time through social networking sites like Facebook, orkut, etc. Some have even found lost love. Some are claiming that they met on such networks first and then their love blossomed. What can be said of such love? Have you come across such instances? Has there been any love stories associated with MyLot as well?

Hi,lucky119! Yeah,this kind of things do happen around us.And for such kind of love,I think it's hard to judge.I mean,some do have a happy ending and they are lucky.But some relationships just turn out to be disastrous. My roommate is now dating a guy she got to know through the Internet.And they have been together for almost a year.Last winter vacation,she went to his province and they had a wonderful time together.But I don't really like long-distance relationships.Especially in a case like this,which you don't really know the other one's background,I don't feel secure at all. My ex and I got to know each other through the social networking.He's a foreigner studying in the same city I'm studying in.And he's so gentle online and we had fantastic conversations.But after we met,he turned out to be just playing around and he doesn't treat this relationship seriously at all.Stupid me. And about love stories concerning Mylot,I think it is possible.We always say that through one's thoughts,you can get to know that person,right? Have a nice day!

Yes, thats my point. How much can you trust such a person? And if you cannot trust, you are not in love. Complicated? I guess love is complicated.

Yeah,it's hard to trust.I think if this whole thing is to work,the ones who think they are falling in love must see each other and get to know each other first instead of trusting each other 100 percent.The Internet is just a tool,a channel.It helps you to know some other people but you still have to get out to the real world if you wanna develop a relationship.

Yes, spot on. Internet can be like bridge to bring two people together. But there after, its upon them to decide their direction.

Well I had my bf for more than two years. We've met online or thru social networking. I guess its more exciting when your love story started out this way, however it is not always advisable.

Why do you say its not always advisable when you also feel its exciting?

Yes, it is exciting when you are this type of adventurous person. Social networking love affair creates a certain world where you are accepted, and where you can create your own character. Why did I say not always advisable? Well, I'm just gonna take it from my experience. Reality is FAR different from the world of INTERNET no matter how the latter try to imitate it. When you're in a real world, you'll find out that not everything is perfect and not all of your expectations are being met.

I haven't come across this on MyLot in particular, but I met my boyfriend of nearly three years on an MMORPG, which for us, surprisingly, did not involve any role play lol We just got along very well and progressed into keeping in touch daily, despite the fact that neither of us really play on that gaming arena now. That led to letters and phone calls.. and it just turned out that we had things in common.. primarily our unusual understanding for each other despite the time and distance and the billion other hurdles that got into our way. Some things.. are simply not for us to question.

Wow, we have another love story here. Billion hurdles..? Awesome. Are you guys still together?

Yes.. billion hurdles. I'm 12 years older than he is and have a child. I'm also chronically ill. He just celebrated his 20th birthday. We are 600 miles apart, for another year at least. And yes, we're still together. Quite honestly, we've split in the past... and we were both quite miserable during that time. If it were to end tomorrow? We're better people for the time we spent, and that's just how we both see it. :)

Hi lucky, Yes, you have heard the right things. These social networking like twitter, facebook, ibibo, my;lot are godd means to dig out the lost treasures like friends, love or a suitable life partner. I am already married or else I could take a chance there.

No, don't take that chance. What if your partner decides to do the same thing? Will you like that?

I have a cousin who arent really friends w/ this girl in real life, she is just an acquaintance, but when they connected thru Facebook, they said that they did fall in love w/ each other and now about to get married. I don't really think it is a working relationship, but love works in wonders and who knows it may or may not work. It will depend on the two people who claims that they love each other.

thats interesting, I'd like to know that as well. I'm sure people have become friendly, maybe even friends on this website but I highly doubt anyone started dating from mylot. I've met a few friends, and one thats still a good friend of mine to this day via internet. We both joined a website for a band we love and that is a shared interest.

Yes,common interests are what brings the people together. Basic reason for love I guess.

Modern technology has advanced so much and done so much to influence our lives over the years. Social networking is becoming something that more and more people are getting involved day by day. It is no surprise to me that many people are turn to the social networks in the name of love.

I'm not sure about Mylot successful love story but i know people that realy make good relationships through Social Networking.If they can to stay with the given person with which they meet at social sites they whould be happy to live.I think that the meeting is just a chance the man never know where can find the correct woman for him so he just continued his searching even if she stand very closer to him.Anyway social networking is good chance to make some great contacts and give some pleasure to ourself by comunication.

The power of social networking sites to regain lost connections and ignite that feeling of love is not impossible, I guess. However, for love to be rekindled or begun, I believe that merely communicating through facebook or yahoo chat isn't enough. These social networking sites may just be the bridge or the instrument for some people to meet, but at the end of the day, those people have to meet in person for them to really identify if the feeling is real.

Yes, that is what most of us like to do. But the social networking sites are becoming more of a reason for the beginning of love. Then we have those meetings in person, but it all seems to start online.

No I did not have any such experience, may be because I am too old for this kind of think, but I did hear that such things do happen. People do make virtual friends, fall in love with them, pledge love, then fall out it and go their own ways. Someone else take their place. This is just a way of breaking monotony, nothing more than that.

Feelings of love is a feeling that knows no bounds. When the feeling of love comes, we can not avoid even reject it. That's the greatness of love. Because feelings of love that has more power, supported by advanced technological developments, love can also be interwoven fabric thanks to the internet communications. That is unavoidable and it has become commonplace. Many of my friends who fell in love with their virtual friends and their dating. Even those that get married.
