Another reason to be careful online

United States
September 19, 2007 8:36am CST
The internet has become a favorite place to meet new people. With chat rooms, social networks and dating services there lots of people seeking others. I just heard a funny story about two people who met online. They became good friends and poured out their hearts to each other. They both were unhappy in their respective marriages. Finally they decided that since they had so much in common they would meet face to face. It was then they discovered that they were the husband and wife they were describing in their chats. They are now getting divorced. Be careful out there in cyberspace!

I can just see this as a plot on a comedy show. It does beg the question of how come they could not talk to each other?

Yea, why they didn't talk about their internet friend while talking to each other? I have saw this plot of comedy on some comedy drama already. Haven't you?

You would think that when they meet each other in person they would realize what they really love about each other to begin with and make it work out. The internet is a good way to get to know other people. Theres no way I would meet someone on a social network in person, thats the bad thing about e-communities. They help people coop with there problem and their unique identity, but in the long run horrible things like this can happen. Just be careful with how you represent yourself on these sites and don't take things too far.

HI jillmalitz! That's the funniest story I heard. I can imagine how shocked both would have been. One has to be really careul while building relationships over he internet as the opposite party can paint a different picture of him or her over the net. In most of the cases people are no what they say they are in reality.So I also would say...... BEWARE!

This is just too funny. Can you for one minute imagine the look on each others face when they met. Yes the only recourse is a divorce in this case. Take care

It is really interesting how they undesrtand each other online, but went through the divorce.Talking online give us sometimes kind of charm talk to openly to other person on the other site.But also I know so many people, who met online and are happy married.I would just not rush anything and really find out if the person is the same outside of online shell like when you talk to him/her online.

I agree with you. One can enjoy chatting with people but must be careful when meeting in person. Things can be different in the real world. Thanks for you views.

It is interesting. But why are they getting divorced when, during chat on line, they have discovered that they have many things in common. In my opinion they should make a fresh start.

I wondered about that too. It would seem to be a good chance to iron out some prolems. I guess they just could not handle their problems. Was kinda funny though.

That was really funny, people do meet on line and get married and live happily, but the issue here is that We have to be careful with the people we meet on the net, there are so many heart breakers out there, when you think things are getting head, there they pull out and put you into emotional break down.

Well, it depend on the person itself. I know some people who met their partner online, and get married, and they are happy living together with their children. But I do agree with you that we should be careful with online dating. Don't be in a hurry to decide some thing important in your life, like marriage for example if you only know the person from emails and chat only. Even if you already meet the person face to face, still need to be careful since maybe that person is the one you are looking for to become your spouse or partner in your life.

That is very true. I have known a couple of people who met online and got married. I just dont think I would try to find a partner that way. Needless to say I dont think eHarmoney.com is going to go broke if they dont get my money some day.

Isn't that funny, the one person they are trying to get away from they meet up in a chat room and get along with so wonderfully and come to find out they are already married, what does that tell you? I think there was a movie made about this.

Yeah, I though it was kind of funny. I does sound like a movie plot. Life imitates art. I can just imagine the look on their faces when they saw each other. LOL.
