Do People Actually Fall In Love Online Without Any Contact?


Just wondering if people think it is actually possible to fall in love with someone online without any real physical contact? I have my doubts, but perhaps people have had experiences or know people who have had experiences that validate that this could actually happen. I assume eventually people in love through cyberspace would meet up in the real world, but who knows these days?

    Love is many different things to different people, and is a rather subjective concept. It certainly sounds to me as though you experienced love on some level. I'm sure you missed her and couldn't wait for the next letter and call.

    That's interesting that people fell in love as pen pals. I was thinking of the modern era with so much online socialization going on, and I didn't consider the way things were done previously. Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing your story. The Internet has changed courtship in a number of ways, mostly for the better, as people can get to know each other better before taking it to the next level.

    I think one could fall in love through correspondence to some degree, but at some level it seems as if you need at least some physical closeness to really have love blossom. But feelings of love are triggered by the brain, so perhaps it is possible.

    Thanks for sharing your story. An interesting take on falling in love and staying in love. I agree that for love to last, it has to be more than just a physical attraction.

    Did they just get to know each other online and then fall in love once they started having physical contact? I just wonder, because there's something about when you see someone you are in love in the flesh that overwhelms you. Not sure about online

    I was thinking the same thing. Falling in love online is only legitimate if both people are being honest. After all, people take on assumed personas online, and one could be corresponding with anyone, which is why it's important to eventually meet.
