what is an internet relationship and why do get close to internet relation much faster than in real? what is an internet friendship? how close can we go with an opposite gender having internet friendship? what is the difference of dating in real person and internet dating? why do we feel close with internet friends more than anything else and feel like meeting him/her again and again in person?

I think its because in the internet relationship we share more of our thoughts and mostly with no holds barred. A lot of us let go of our inhibitions in terms of expressing ourselves so we get too personal right away. In real life, we don't do that and we seldom show our real selves. So in internet relationship, we know more of a persons thoughts. I started like that with my husband. We got closer because of chatting though we worked in the same company but we were located across the oceans. He came to our side of the country and when he got back to his area, we started chatting and got to know each other.

It's easier to get close to internet friends becuase you can talk anything with the person because of lack of presence we are not guarded as to what we should say and our action should be. But I don't believe that you can develop deep relationship through it, it's still different if you see the person and actually spend time with her/him

Well from a subjective view, I say people get closer on the internet faster because it is where we dont feel very vulnerable, no close contacts, no feeling, touching. On the internet we feel that we are less judged and scrutinized. It is possible that most people making relationships online feel more at ease. its quite easy to talk to strangers, for with them, you can start fresh, new, no dark pasts known, no skeletons, you just present yourself rather nicely, you become an angel. Then again, the drawback of these relationships are, one, they dont last long, people are genetically inclined to touch and feel, talking wont just suffice. If they really meet and take the extra mile, then maybe there is hope. If not, then it will finally go into a close - the said online relationship.
