Is normal if someone looking for a mate through the Internet, for example through internet sites such as Tagged and Facebook ..? Are not many out there who are real, which can be seen and touched, let alone there some words who said, "which near only and can be seen can lie, how which far ?" How your's opinion, my friends? Do you believe someone can fall in love just through internet?

You absolutely can find love through the internet. I did! My husband and I met through a chat room because he liked my username. We started talking. He lived a few states away. We talked for a month and a half. He came here to be with me, we moved in together, got engaged and married within the year. We have been together for 7 years and we have 3 kids together... =) We are very much in love! =)

Love is found in the some unexpected places. He/She might be near you, in the other side of the world, in the internet, etc, or maybe still unborn at this moment in time. Who knows. I met my boyfriend through the internet that is why i don't believe that a good foundation of a relationship needs a physical contact. We chatted for a year before meeting and now the fire of love keeps burning, we trust each other and that is most important thing in a relationship. I hate liars, I was careful to choose a BF because I know liars are everywhere and now they are doubling in quantities... Happy mylotting!

Good that you have luck with your boyfriend!! :) I agree with you, is always important to take a lot of care before going to meet someone that you only talk through the internet. Unfortunately, there are a lot of persons who only wants to take advantage of you.

I think it was not a luck, we worked out hard in our relationship and i believe it wasn't a pure luck. The relationship has a mixture of many qualities we both have. Thank you and happy mylotting!

And I think a lot of people now are searching to find that someone through the internet, so I think that is normal. Thank God for the internet magic and latest communication discoveries, we are able to connect to the other face of the world! Good morning from the Philippines!

I met my husband over the Internet and went to visit him for what was supposed to be two weeks and that was back in 2004. When I first met him it was lover at first sight. I met him on GSN and things were great right from the start. We dated online from April-December 2004. I came out and met him December 2004 and we continued to date. We got engaged December 24, 2005 and got married August 28, 2007. We have been married ever since and yes, I will admit there have been a couple of arguments, but in relationships this does happen sometimes. It can happen.

What a nice history!! I have to say that I'm pretty skeptical about dating online and stuff like that, but your history proves that is possible to find your soul mate through the internet.

I would say it's not a very natural way of finding a partner. I would prefer to actually meet the person in real life before starting a relationship. What if you don't find the person attractive? It would suck that wouldn't it?

I agree with you. I never talked on the internet with someone that I don't know in real life, but imagine you talked with someone for months then when you meet the person in real life, she is not anything what she say she was. I think that's pretty normal to happen when you meet people on the internet, usually persons only show her good things on the internet.

I was not desperately looking at that time, I was young, adventurous and active. It was in 1999, just curious of what chatting is, but then I met someone that I think could love me and be loved and be worth living for the rest of my life. Thanks God for the internet, I was able to find him then.

Some of friends are looking fir a mate thru internet but in my part i don't like that kind of idea. I don't want myself to keep on thinking with a guy i really don't know hathis background is. I want a man whom i know so much. Like, already met his family and friends. :)

Hi nurseclare! Nowadays, if you wanna search or find your true love, you don't have to set boundaries. As I told in my previous comment, love comes from unexpected places. Setting a foundation of relationship online without physical existence i a challenge! When we started chatting with my BF, that was 1999 and there was no videocam then, only emails and the first YM was java, that was so annoying! But we are in our 11th year now Who knows, your soul mate is from the other part of the universe that can only be reached by internet connection for now.

Well love can be mysterious sometimes and there's no exact ways of how one should fall in love and how love would play on lovers. I think finding a mate in internet is the same with the casual girl meet boy. The only difference it the meduim and the technology involve. How the two would react and how love would treat them is not for us to know because as I have said LOVE can be mysterious and playful but always kind and sweet! I mean true love, of course!

Love did come unexpectedly. We are trying to find our spouse. And of course fine if you suddenly get it over the internet. Like my neighbor who has a husband from Uruguay who knew through the chat on the internet with yahoo messenger and FS. :D Happy Mylotting to all...

Love happens anywhere,everywhere and in even in the most unexpected places and events,so...it could be possible on the net. I've heard great stories about net-love affairs. Some might become a victim and have bad/shocking experiences. Not every fate is same ,it differs online or offline. Yes,I do believe love happens on the net and it is normal.

Well, I don't believe that I can fall in love through the internet, but I do believe that others persons can. I already saw so many histories on TV of couples that started their relationships through the internet. So, if it worked for them, I guess that's possible. But, I think not confortable to talk with someone that you don't have no idea if it's real, if he is who he says he is.. For me, I still need the real contact first.

I think this is a tough question, but it can be answered. I have written an article some time ago, if you have time, you can look at it. http://webupon.com/social-networks/online-friendship-is-it-real/
