Love of Her Virtual Friend

Love of Her Virtual Friend


Do you believe that you can become a virtual lover?

I wonder if you have ever imagined falling in love with someone on line! I appreciate that there are many dating websites where people do go with the intention of finding a partner before meeting and falling in love.

Is it possible though I wonder, to meet someone by chance, through HubPages for example and begin communications that would eventually lead to a virtual love?

Can we really fall in love with someone in Cyperspace? Is it possible to fall in love with someone's words so much that feelings become aroused despite not knowing their true identity, not knowing their real appearance, the sound of their voice or their age?

I wonder if it really is possible to transcend through the computer screen and fall in love with a virtual friend?


Love of Her Virtual Friend


She feels that love across the screen

No-one around and yet unseen

She knows you care

She feels your love

Through your words, your tenderness

She is under your spell

With such emotion she cannot tell


For since she first touched base

Something magical was taking place

She had feelings for her virtual man

Even though they’d only met online

He was unique with inner strength

And clearly had a heart of gold

This relationship was about to unfold


He wrote with such perfection

And totally won her affection

His words filled her with intrigue

She wanted to delve more

To reveal this romantic man

Can she be in love for certain

With such a virtual person


She feels as though her heart’s on fire

This man she really does desire

They have never met as such

But she knows him well enough

To trust her instincts for this man

How can she feel such emotion

For her, he’s like a magic potion


Her heart’s completely aroused

Like smouldering embers espoused

She needs to know it’s not too late

To let him know her feelings

Started to arouse from the beginning

The touch of the keyboard I guess

Was the time she knew it would progress


Let’s watch this space as events unfold

An amazing story will be told

She will reveal this journey of hers

As it continues igniting from his words

So perfect, so convincing, so complete

His words reveal he is very intense

Can they continue with complete innocence?

It is possible to meet someone anywhere, some are good and some bad, no matter where you look. You just know when it clicks for both of you. This is an awesome poem and am looking forward to many more.

Great Hub!

However, I would use great caution in becoming involved with someone met online.


Huntgoddess profile image

Huntgoddess 5 years ago from Midwest U.S.A.

I agree with Will Starr. Just be extremely careful. Don't even think about meeting this person alone for the first time. And, not in a private place, either.

You cannot feel anyone's love across the screen. All you can do is like they way the person writes. That doesn't tell you anything about the person, really.

And, when you say he clearly has a heart of gold --- that's also incorrect, because you've never met him.

You have to remember that what you're really attracted to is your own thoughts.

Be careful.


Nan Mynatt 5 years ago

You are a romantic person and idealistic about falling in love. The written words say what you want to hear. I had this to happen to me, the other person fell in love with me. I'll write about it someday!

yes I believe it can, I met my wife of 16 years on the internet as a matter of fact, we met for coffee and lunch and I fell instantly in love with her. These are the best years of my life.

God Bless

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Huntgoddess I completely agree with you, there may be so many hidden dangers involved. So many women take risks and it is crucial to meet in a safe, public place, maybe keeping a friend close at hand!

I was wondering if people can really fall in love without meeting and from some of these comments people definitely have.

I am grateful for your caring comments. Thank you.

Hey I'm so completely normal it's boring... I'm just an old puppy dog... well I do have an ego... and err... I'm kind of cocky.. ok, ok... I like sex a lot... but nothing weird... anyway there's that selfishness thingee I'm working on but I don't drink too much... you know just enough to feel no pain....

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Yes safety of course is of paramount importance. I was merely wondering if one could fall in love online without ever meeting the person. Whilst writing to people one can often feel some loving connection.

Hope you're feeling much better. Take care, you see I have never met you but I feel you have a heart of gold. Thanks Darski.

BenWritings 5 years ago from Save me from, Tennessee

lol @ the above comments especially suburban poet's

I wouldn't rule out online love by any means, I have had feelings for people online a few times...it's a wonderful way to get to know them before meeting, as long as it isn't an entirely different person when you meet them

that's why you should definitely know what they look like, and sound like, before meeting

in my opinion


acaetnna profile image

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Wow Ben, thanks for your comment. I totally agree with you. So often someone can be completely different online and maybe get away with quite a bit - pretend they are someone else perhaps. What a shock it must be to hardly recognise the same person if they arrange to actually meet!

Thanks for your visit, I appreciate it.


Website Examiner 5 years ago

I really enjoyed this hub; its tone, contents, style, and images. Concerning some of the previous comments: I think it is a misunderstanding to have turned this hub into a discussion about "dating." Your poem is not about that. It is about how love can happen in the oddest of circumstances. Love can transcend all boundaries: Age, financial, cultural, religious. Love will always find a way, and there will always be someone ready to give good advice and warnings. Poetically and romantically speaking, it would be wrong to listen to them.

This poem reminded me of the movie 'You've Got Mail'. Yes, I believe it is possible to fall in love with someone on-line, if their words touch one's heart and move their soul. Great poem! Loved it! : )

This is beautiful...I wish I had a book of adjectives...I would copy all the positive descriptions into this comment. Instead, I can only think of one word and hope you will accept my humble offering of, 'beautiful,' for what you have written is so daring, and yet, wisely cautious.

In my opinion...if this reflects your earnest feelings, you should tell that person. Let them know how you feel even if by simply directing them to this magical piece of literary art and telling them, 'This is for you.'

Deni Edwards 5 years ago from california

I don't know how you manage to find the most perfect pictures every time!

On-line love? I'm not so sure. But you successfully managed to capture the thoughts (at least I think so) of someone who is having a cyber romance--The touch of the keyboard (instead of a hand).

Thanks for sharing.

Interesting Thoughts and Poem, but Caution, Caution, Caution! Is this really that person's picture, and what is the History of him, behind what he writes? I think one could also be walking a dangerous path...On the other hand, can you fall in love on line? I'm sure it happens everyday...but Caution to the wind!


Ghaelach 5 years ago

Hi Acaetnna.

Nice to see you and one of your beautiful poems again. I know one dosen't need to write every day but your poems are missed.

Cyber Love, can it really happen. Well, with a lot of you girls it seems yes, you fall in love with this mussel man off the internet that has treated you like Princess Diana for the last 12 months, you get married to the guy you thought you new only to find he's got a Jeckel and Hide character. But this is nothing new and your heart won't believe he's a no good. It can happen as we have seen from VV68 16 years(congrat's) but I would think the word Caution must be stamped on your heart.

An interesting subject though. lol

A great poem acaetnna,

Like most others I would be weary of someone I had met online, but then these relationships do very often work. All I would advice someone to do would be " Be very careful."

Thank for sharing this one with us.

Brilliant as always.

Take care

acaetnna profile image

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Thank you Website Examiner I really do appreciate your comments. I agree my poem was nothing to do with dating. My intention was to pose a question: 'Is it possible to fall in love on line?' The possibility of having a virtual relationship, completely falling in love, not necessarily with the intention of ever meeting! I guess most people when speaking of love relationships beginning on line, think of ultimately physically meeting that person for a date. I so always appreciate your comments, they make perfect sense.


acaetnna profile image

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Pamela thank you. Yes I agree if someone was to physically meet someone they should exert extreme caution initially. Also I guess even if one has no intention of ever meeting a virtual friend they should not share personal details on line. I am often very surprised by how much information people reveal on Facebook, one should be very careful in my opinion.

I always appreciate your time Pamela, thank you so much.

Deni thank you. You are right the intention was to have a cyber romance. It is so interesting to read people's comments about this type of romance, many have inferred that I meant on line dating, but that was certainly not my intention!

I always appreciate the time you take to visit and comment on my poetry, thank you so much.

Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K.

Acaetnna, I have said it many times, and I say it again. If this applied to you, you would be in there up to your waist, because you are the most romantic, optimistic person. Not everybody is like you, my dear. I would be most way of someone who could write lovely phrases that could capture your soul in a noose of silk and honey. You, as I have said, are romantic and optimistic, and that is exactly what the predator seeks. Let him look elsewhere to find the cynic, because there are many out there. Pessimism may be hard to take, but it is a protection from evil and those who would ensnare.


acaetnna profile image

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Always Exploring I agree totally if I had any intention myself of physically meeting someone I would need to look them straight in the eye. Even a virtual romance one has to adhere to caution. I always love you coming to read my poetry, thank you.

michael ely 5 years ago from Scotland

Really like this acaetnna. I think you've captured a feeling in this poem. People can get start to like people just by the words that they write. It's fascinating in a way that even just in words written down people can decide if they like or dislike a person or want to keep reading and getting to know more about them.

Great Hub. Michael.


neeleshkulkarni profile image

neeleshkulkarni 5 years ago from new delhi

like any other place the ent can only be a starting point for a relationship and from there it can go anywhere.

falling in love only when met on the net is definitely falling in love dictated by our own thoughts and needs since no love is possible till you have judged a person completely.

Howdy acaetnna - There are times when I find it difficult to simply sit here and enjoy reading stuff (like this fine hub). So I guess I might as well be my usual nonsense-self and tell you that I fell in love with my very own virtual friend - my forefinger (the one that hits the keyboard where I want it to hit.)

Gus :-)))

thougtforce 5 years ago from Sweden

I think it is possible since so many people do meet their love one online. As for myself I don’t really know if I could fall in love online. I have never used Internet that way but I think I want to meet the person in real first.

Anyway, you have done a great hub and presented this with warmth and feeling! Tina

Yes, it is possible to find someone and have feelings for them, we have to trust our instincts and go with our gut feelings. I am all for being sensible and weighing up things carefully too. Nobody wants their heart broken. But love is a risk online and offline too.

We all risk something by falling in love. But the rewards can be so worth it. Great hub!

saddlerider1 profile image

saddlerider1 5 years ago

Yes I truly believe it is possible to meet online, the falling in love is gradual over time, once you both meet will determine the true connection, all humans are connected, yet so many of us equate lust to love.

TRUE LASTING LOVE reaches beyond lust and if you can become BEST friends and accept each others weaknesse's you are off to a fine start. I enjoyed meeting some ladies for dates online, nothing really materialized, why? because we were not soulmates.

However I believe we all have one waiting there, we just have to await our destiny. I know you have found yours by the way you write about your lover. Hugs to you.

Little Kim 5 years ago from Any town U.S.A.

Before all of this wonderful technology I fell for a guy over the phone. He listened to every word and remebered everthing we talked about. When we finally met face to face it was WOW! nothing ever happened between us but he would say or do something that told me he wanted to. Years went on and he got a job in Tennessee. Lost touch but called him 2 yrs back and he never returned my call like i never existed in his life.

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

I totally agree with you Saddlewriter, true love gradually happens, it needs to be entrenched on strong foundations if it is to succeed. I certainly agree that true long lasting love reaches beyond lust. When true love is experienced it is the most wonderful feeling and I am so lucky to be experiencing that love right now. My true love and I are definitely best friends and we love everything about each other.

Thank you so much for your comments Saddlewriter I always so appreciate them from you.

How wonderful Kim, yes we often forget that the internet is rather recent technology. How wonderful to have fallen in love on the phone, actually I too have had a friend who fell in love that way. I am so sorry he didn't call you back years later but maybe he had moved on and changed his phone number. Maybe fate will play it's hand and you will meet again in the most perfect time of your life.

Thank you so much for your comment and I am so pleased that we met here on line.

Hello, dear. Everything is possible. When technology become more advance, why human way in making connection can't move forward too? With all gagdets available today; video chat for example, distance no longer the biggest problem for people to meet their special someone. But yes, it is risky and we all need to be very catious because con artist is everywhere. Still, even never meet in person yet, I believe love will never less real if we are lucky to find one, because even after meeting the person 100 times, sometimes we still able to easily get fraud by the one we think we love but turned out just another con artist. Online just the way they meet. Love still the same if it is real. Beautiful, dear. As Always. ^_^ Me and Mr. Story Teller had meet online and we love each other still. :)

One can certainly fall in love online, but the relationship has to move on into reality, where it can end like any normal relationsship, or continue into marriage. My first online love in the beginning of 2010 proved himself as a complete con-artist in reality - I tolerated him for only 55 days. My second love online is the man of my dreams - I know via webcamera and hours of talking. He'll be with me in reality on 6 April and I can't wait to love him to pieces :)))))

Your poetry captures that wonderful feeling so well! Many people have met their love online but there is the other side of the coin, too. One can 'be' anything or anyone on here. What seems to be a loving, romantic person can in truth be quite the opposite. Please be careful. I hope you are 100% correct about him :)

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean

I met my current boyfriend on hubpages by accident. I used his photograph, he followed the link back to say thank you. I had posted a self portrait of his abs for "Its Raining Men - hubmob" and I embarrassingly nicknamed him lickable guy on that hub. It started as email chit chat and quickly became crazy good. Its almost been two years now. He moved 800 miles to be with me... so yep it can happen.

p.s. we skyped for a month before we ever had a date, he was him and I was, well the rest of me.

Wow. A very interesting hub and comments. I liked your poem too.

You have quite the gamut of responses here, and I find the success stories by several, including Bella and Randy, with vietnamvet's story especially notable, all quite wonderful...

Personally, I think the hubs are a wonderful place to get to know people. Caution is always prudent in all cases, virtual or not, so I don't think that's really the main point here.

You are quite the initiator - nice job!!!

Bbnix how awesome, I so agree with you. It seems quite a family here at Hubpages and I have met so many virtual people here in Cyberspace. Indeed Bella, Randy and Vietnam have experienced the ultimate - how simply wonderful. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment.

Hi acaetnna,

I see you have.

I do think it's possible but risky.

As in, I have for more than one, and been dissappointed. :( Unfortunately they were both too busy...

I know many who have found love, on-line. Like everyone else though, you just listen to your gut and be safe. Other than that, I loved this poem and you reflecting on the possiblity of findiing love online.

Love!? I am always intrigued with the concept. Virtual or not, love is an attitude of the heart. Love has different dimensions but the common thread is the feeling of happiness, security, trust, purity, understanding and the desire to keep on giving no matter what. This is how love feels to me.. lovely poem there. Thanks for sharing!


acaetnna profile image

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Yes Sofs I totally agree that love is an attitude of the heart. Your definition 'feeling of happiness, security, trust, purity, understanding and the desire to keep on giving no matter what', is totally perfect.Thank you so much for your insightful comment.

You right, so right, if you go into it knowing all the potential in it for people to lie then take the precautions, you might meet someone wonderful. He and I both thought, hmmmmm, but it turned out okay.

Plus, take your time, we were epals for a very long time. I felt he'd get tired and move on giving up on all the e correspondence and yet he did not. This was a good thing and built a lot of trust between us.

This is a great poem about virtual friends and a trend I think on the rise. To be forewarned is a good thing :) Katie

Katie you always talk so much sense. I so appreciate your wisdom on this subject. You are right it is a trend on the rise and I know of many happy relationships that have progressed after meeting on line. Thanks for awesome comments Katie.

Love for a virtual friend is a great topic for a poem, and yes, I know people who have found love that way. I even know some in Hub Pages too. Heh. If it is possible for a thing to happen and the chemistry is right, and the personalities work, then yes it can happen.

I agree that people have to be careful, as it is the internet. When I came across the word "sock puppet" on Hubs, I was mortified. And that word puts fear and sometimes other things into people's minds. But there are real people on hubs too, and knowing the difference to me is crucial. Maybe explaining gut instinct is too hard to explain here, but it does help and factors into my way of thinking.

As we all become more like Netizens than Citizens, we have to learn new habits and adapt to new rules. And always be vigilant too. But I am happy for all the people who have ever found happiness and love and romance with another person via the internet. It is a beautiful thing. :D


acaetnna profile image

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Cathy I couldn't agree with you more. I think one has a gut feeling even in Cyberspace to know when someone is being genuine or not.

I love your terminology of Netizens rather than Citizens, and yes as we venture into the unknown through our computer screens we do need to adapt to new rules especially with regards to safety.

I enjoyed writing this and love reading all the comments that my poem stimulated.

Great to see you here and leaving such detailed comments as always. Thank you Cathy.

Ace- Reading printed words online is much like reading a book. The reader tends to form the words into what their imagination carries them off to. This being said, it also has the same purpose as any other first impression. If it gets your attention, then you'll want a closer look. Online convo's lead to phone convo's that lead to in person meetings etc.... I met my fiance thru an online radio show. She feel in love with my voice, then decided to email me and ask me questions and stuff. Ok, it was the voice that got her attention, the wit, humor and poetic heart "finished" the job lol. -Paul

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Plarson I completely agree with you. I understand completely how your fiancée fell in love with your voice. The correct tone of voice is SO important and can be so sexy and romantic. I did the same; fell hook, line and sinker in love with my husband initially because of his amazing voice. I am still completely in love with it today and when he has to go away he calls me everyday and I go completely weak at the knees. Thanks Paul for your visit and of course your comment.

This is such a beautiful and loving hub - like you - absolutely just like you. How could anyone that connects with you through the internet, help but fall in love? YOU are love. When we have pure love in our hearts for one another, I believe we fall in love, again and again. Having said that - we know that different types of love exist. An example of this would be our loving hub family right here on hubpages. Thank you, dear friend, for filling each one of us with your love and light!

Vocalcoach - what a simply wonderful comment from you - thank you SO very much. I so agree with your words 'When we have pure love in our hearts for one another, I believe we fall in love, again and again'. Totally true. I hope that I have spread a little love and light around. We certainly ALL deserve to have some!

Yes I believe it is possible. It is a way to get out of reality here on HP and there are so many nice people you can empathise with and they become your good friends. I am sure relationships have and will continue to blossom.Are you familiar with my friend mamadrama.hubpages.com? Her work is similar to your's and I am sure she would like your work. Tell her I sent you and let me know how you both get on. Follow her and I am sure she will follow back. She is rrrrreally nice.She will love your work!

Brilliant Hub. I know many people who are always chatting and fall for every other person without knowing much about them. You handled the subject so well that i sincerely felt that Love can happen in the purest form online. Just read WE's Hub on a similar subject. Appreciate your imagination. I would be more critical I think, as I have observed some of my friends fooling with their virtual friends. There was an Old man,he used to chat with a girl regularly,she fell for him and asked for his picture.He sent his son's picture and when she decided to come down to meet him he made excuses and then stopped chatting with her. I loved this Poem. Changed my perception.

acaetnna 4 years ago from Guildford Author

I am so glad this hub changed your perception Snigdha.S! Yes there are definitely some crooks on the Internet. All I can say is be very, very wary. The virtual person is often completely different in reality. Great comments - thank you so much.

When I first read your hub I absolutely believed it to be true.When you connect you fall for the words the person speaks.You feel a closeness you never felt before.Then again are they who they say they are?There are many people who meet face to face and in time fall out of love for so many reasons.So I guess it is no different here on the internet.Love from a distance that stays virtual maybe the best way to go.You have fun until one day one of you disappears.Then the lost lover is replaced by another person who sounds dear.Love is challanging enough for me to keep one person happy all the time when I see them every day.I can't imagine when you don't.Good luck to those who can make it happen.What a wonderful hub and all the fantasic comments.

Dream On what an awesome, detailed comment. Thank you so very much. I agree, totally with everything that you have said. Love is such a challenging experience and it can be very difficult on line. Equally it is difficult when we completely know the person. Love will dedinitely win through though, I know that for absolute sure!!!
