I think i have some friends online and even i have met some of them. but while being online we were very close and when we met after that we gradually started going far. i think this could be due to expectation from each other which could not fulfilled. what are your views and experiences.

It seems to depend on many things, some friends online i have had for ages, oppoesed to others we seem to have grown in each our own directions in what we wanted with our lives. Before i moved in with my boyfriend we communicated alot online as we where in 2 different countries.

Hi, you got it right... I used to have friends online and we used to chat and shared a lot but when we met then thing started to change. Hard to say but that's the way it is. I dont know why either... but for my own experience, if you have a friend with guy and u both met then it turned out not too good then it could me something the guy u dont like or something like that.

this kind of relationship needs more honesty and trust. It should start with it in the first place because it will going to be a very good foundation. But if otherwise confusion may arise that could lead to drifting apart even to the extent not communicating on line.

Online relationships ca be richly rewarding. they can also be dangerious. Be smart about our relationships online and you will avoid the danger and reap the rewards.But I think relationships lies on bonding and believes. If you have better understanding and bonding with each other then the survival is easy. I saw one friend of me they meet on chatting site.gradually they attached with each other emotionally . one day they decided to meet and now their relationship is continued after their marriage .

Hi anurag, there are several aspects of our personality that are not exposed in online relationship. :) We dont know how loud a person talks, how the person walks, how the person eats, smells, or fights, etc. We like the person intellectually, and if it is that alone which we seek, then we need not meet the person. But if we are seeking more than that, then we should expect the worst. In fact, we should say - ok these are the only attributes of this person. She may be ugly, have a shrill voice, stink like a pig, fight like a person on street, and doesnt know how to eat well, lazy, very money minded, whatever. Find all things bad and attribute them to your online friend along with the good you already know. Every point your online friend scores will then have you pleasantly surprised. :)
