Ever After: What Happens When You Finally Meet the Person You Fell in Love With

Can You Fall In Love with Someone ... Now that You Have Met?

Two years ago, I wrote the first version of an article/hub: "Can You Fall in Love with Someone You've Never Met?"

The article has been read by nearly 50,000 readers, hundreds each day. One thing, I think, that makes the article interesting is the many, many comments from readers who have shared their own stories. It is truly fascinating to read these stories, people from all over the world, of all different ages, who met online, by chance, or still may not have met at all. These stories, so interesting in their beginnings, though, they are not yet finished.

Many of the comments I have read include a statement of anticipation - the person writing the comment is writing it looking forward to the meeting - the meeting - at last, with the person of his or her dreams.

So now what I'm wondering is - how did it work out? What's happened since you did meet? Many of the readers of the original hub would surely be interested to know - I am! Hopefully, for many of you, things have gone even better than you hoped. No doubt, sadly, for a few at least, things didn't go quite so well.

For some, maybe the encounter never came to be at all. Now that some time has passed, and you have a chance to look back, why do you think things worked out the way they have? What is it about destiny that brought you to this place.

Even if you hadn't commented before, perhaps you have a story that is worth sharing now - that is, in the context of meeting someone you felt you were already in love with, and now you have had some time to see how things worked out.

I hope this hub offers enough good information from enough people with many different perspectives so that many of you can benefit from the stories of our readers.

Happy holidays!

I read your last article, 'Can you fall in love with someone you have never met?' and was immediately intrigued on your perspective of love. Also, you speak with experience because you, yourself have stated as being in a relationship with someone over the internet...I have an interesting situation I am in and have been since reading your last article. I would largely like your opinion on it...so maybe if you could respond I would like to ask you a unusual question about the potential future of this relationship I am trying to be in over the internet...Thank you so much. -B

I fell in love with a man on the internet. He was sweet and respectful and handsome. We talked every day for half an year and finally decided to meet. I flew to Germany to meet him and when I arrived to the airport but he was nowhere to be found. I called him many times and finally he answered that he was too nervous to see me! Finally after talking and shouting and crying he decided to come.

WElL, it didn't go so well. Happens, that he didn't know how to make a conversation online. The same man I had shared my toughts and opened my heart to him online, could hardly look me in the eyes. So I went to my hotel and he tried to get to my room and get physical saying shit like he loved me and couldn't wait any longer. Needless to say I kicked him out and cried myself to sleep that night. Online he was again all like "how could you be so mean to me" "Are you that disappointed in how I look" and of course the "I love you"s and "I would die for you"s and that crap. And that he was sorry of the way he behaved and he was again so sweet and wonderful, but reality hits hard. It was not worth it, and I must say that I was so sure we would hit it off and get married and have childer, and all the things we loved and shared. Yeah, right.

I also learned later he had lied about his job, nationality and education. So that's my story.

I'm in love with someone on net for over a year plus. He told me that he love me so much that he can be without me. He's so carely and lovely felix by name. If i had a problem talk to him online, he wil encourage me on how to deal with the problem and l myself love him so dearly but the problem is, we haven't seen each other and he promise to come and see me he doesn't want me to come.

We met on net. I know him now for 4 years and are in a relationship for 3 years but I haven't met in person but we Skype two three times a week and talk on the phone for almost the whole day. In the night as we can't talk on the phone we keep texting each other continuously. We both share everything together. We laugh together, cry with each other, and fight a lot. But at the end of the day he is like - " you tiny creature, you fight with me so much but my love is never going to change for you :-) ". He does everything he can to make me feel his presence around me.

We live in different cities of India. We are both from the same state. But can't meet until I start going to college. I decided to apply for Symbiosis University of Pune. He's encouraging me and making sure I do make efforts for it. I'm preparing for the entrance day and night. . It's one of the University for the career I'm opting for. And cherry on the cake - I get to be with him. We both are waiting for this year to pass away. And then we'll be together.

So I met a girl online three months ago - I can actually tell you the exact time and date I first laid eyes on her! I sent her a message and she quickly responded, and that was the beginning of our online relationship, which sees hundreds of messages traded every day.

We arranged to meet a month ago, but due to technical difficulties and bad planning it never happened - we both turned up but completely missed each other!

We talk all day. She is the first and last person I speak to every day, and I never fail to smile and feel happy when my phone buzzes with a new message from her. With a physical connection not yet made, we have been able to get to know each other really well on a personal and emotional level. This could be love, it feels like love...

We're scheduled to meet in three days time! I'm nervous, but filled with excitement and hope! I'll come back soon with an update...

I fell in love online. He was interested but I lost it completely. He gave me his e mail address. I kept on writing to him for 3 and a half years. He never replied. This is very out of the ordinary for me because I am mature and know that Love is a ongoing play between two equals. I really believe he is the One a lifelong love and relationship would have been possible with. His silence taught me a great many lessons and my words to him was the song of a bird that is not going to fly. I jumped for him, like Seth in City of Angels. I m still single and not seeking anylonger.
