Can you fall in love with someone you have never met?

Updated on April 8, 2014

Falling in Love

"Some people say that they know right away, sell you love on a cloud for a lullaby." - The Bodeans

Read the companion article to this hub: Ever After: What Happens When You Finally Meet the Person You Fell in Love With)

In a certain way, it seems you have to fall in love with someone you've never met. When you get to know someone, how can you know you're in love unless you've already come to love certain characteristics that you find irresistibly attractive?

You have to know what it is or who you would fall in love with before you meet. If you don't know that, you won't have whatever it is that will trigger the falling in love.

Romantic love is romantic because it's based on an idea. The idea of the ideal person - someone who completes you, someone who you feel naturally matches your heartbeat and your very breath. Someone who is very different from you but complements you perfectly. Someone who makes you feel entirely like a woman - if you're a woman, and someone who makes you feel like you're a true man if you're a man.

You want your completor, the rest of your identity, that person who feels like your own heart and soul to you. But you cannot know these things unless you have formed that ideal in your mind and have pursued it. Then s/he walks in the room - you just know, you just know because you can't go wrong.

Meeting Someone Special

But the other side of the story might burst your bubble. There is no "someone" unless there IS. In other words, there has to be a real person, one you actually can or have met, one who is actually in your life to be the person you love.

What I mean is that it is easy to feel like you've fallen in love with the star of a movie you have never met, but that might not only be hopeless (since you may never meet), but also an enormous let down if you did. All you really do when you "fall in love" with an actor or person you haven't met is to shape the ideal of what it is to be in love.

It can be amazing how love works some times. There are people who've met, known each other for years, and only truly fallen in love after they never thought that would be possible.

How does that happen? Well, in part, it's because falling in love is about your life. Truly - it shouldn't be about what you hope your life should be but never becomes, it should be about what really is.

Falling in love doesn't have to be an experiment that if it doesn't work, you try an alternative - falling in love can be a wonderful process of finding, getting to know and bonding with the right person.

But that bond doesn't have to be some romantic lottery game, with sparks and endless thoughts of what might be - you can and probably should be good friends with someone for a long time, maybe even before you realize the sexual attraction is what it really is.

Of course, you want to have a tremendous sexual attraction - after all, it's hard to think of being in love without it. But you can definitely have the sexual attraction on a physical level, without having it on a much deeper level.

Online Dating

I have tried online dating fa few times and it has taught me some interesting life lessons. It seems to work out for some people, but it can also be very disappointing and unrealistic.

There are always plenty of people to meet, but once you met, the story may be very different than the profile - and often is. I often felt like I had been getting to know a different person than the person I actually did meet. That said, I did meet a girl online who I fell in love with very deeply, but even in that relationship, the challenges of you can't actually say in an online profile were very heavy indeed.

If you just meet people in ordinary, organic ways, you can feel a lot more sure that you are getting to know a real person, with a real life of their own - not a romance story or a fantasy idea of the perfect mate.

The Perfect Match

I have to admit that years ago, when I was first divorced, there was a time when I became enamored of someone I met online - and we never met. She was overseas. I was aeager every day to read her messages, and as often as I could. I wanted to hear her voice and I wanted to know everything I could about her.

I dreamed about her - and the dreams were very vivid and seemed real. Sometimes I would wake up and go through much of the day thinking about my dream as if she had been with me the day before and left, and felt like I was missing her. Like you might be wondering now, I questioned whether this was healthy. Now I realize I was at a point in my life where that was all I could have - and while I would never go back, I needed it at the time. it helped me get over a very difficult time in my life.

When she and I wrote, I often thought I was communicating with my lifemate. Then when I moved from Georgia to Michigan, I took a month or two, as I told her I would, and got settled, before I started thinking about how we could finally actually meet each other and be together.

I finally got back to writing her, but she wasn't there. Her emails bounced back. To this day, I'm not sure what happened. No, this wasn't a situation where she asked or I gave her money, nothing like that. (Frankly, I would've had had none to give at that time if she had asked.) I have had a woman ask me that one time, and as soon as I said no, she lashed out at me. To my surprise, she tried much harder after I said no - but it didn't matter then, I didn't trust her motives. Maybe that question about trust is a good one for anyone dating online?

But back to the first girl - the one I thought I feel for. Did she meet someone else? Maybe. Did things change in her life in that time otherwise - I doubt if I'll ever know.

But the even more curious question is what if we had met? Then what? My later experiences taught me to think it might not have been everything I thought it would when we were just writing and talking. No, I can't be sure. But, you know, another thing is that all the things I thought I desired about her - I'm not sure I would want that now - or that I ever really did. Sometimes, unanswered prayers are the best kind.

It's just that there was something about the sense of unattainability - or a real challenge in attainability of our relationship that made it so intriguing. If I had met her at a fun event and got to know her, would she have seemed so special? Maybe, but not necessarily someone I would have fallen in love with. In fact, I think now the odds are pretty slim I would have ever fallen in love with her, but of course, I don't know.

Already Met, But Far Away

Funny thing, though - to a guy, one of the most attractive things - at least when it comes to "falling in love", is a bit of unavailability.

I don't mean that in the sense of playing games. I also don't mean it in the sense of unattainability. - probably better referred to as a "challenge". If someone is at just enough distance, is making their own, independent life important - and is still charming, approachable and, at the right time, can be touched as well - that seems like the ideal circumstance for falling in love - but that isn't about unattainability - it's about timing, and "due diligence".

Which makes it something quite different than the online type of relationship. How? In an online relationship that sense of unattainability can either be easily overcome by a meeting at a coffee shop (which can spiral into dizzying romance and passion), or it can't because of distance and other factors. I find that the harder that is to overcome, the higher the stakes, and the more a person is invested when that meeting occurs. But if that is the first meeting, instead of thinking about what you like about that person, you are thinking you have already made a big commitment.

When you meet organically instead, you can just access from that safe space - eye to eye, one on one conversation, without any pressure to go to the next level. Online dating raises the stakes -

- in several ways. You can't meet someone online without having the sense that you are in a competition. Who else are they communicating with? Who else are they having that one hour date with? What do I have to do to "win"? It's crazy. Love shouldn't be a competition with a third person - it should be a competition with yourself. It should be that thing that helps make you want to be the very best you can be, motivated not so much to please the other person but rather to be the best you that you can be in that relationship - and that the pleasing of him or her will naturally follow.

So, back to where we started...

Can You Fall in Love with Someone You've Never Met?

Maybe it depends on what you mean by falling in love - is it something that sparks the attraction and the effort to give it a try? Then the answer is yes. Or is it something that means you could spend the rest of your life with this person? If so, I would say it's much less likely you can fall in love with someone until you HAVE met them and spent time together. In the end, it has to take sight, touch, movement, etc. that comes with actually meeting someone, finding the real attraction, and letting the mystique of "getting to know" each other work its magic.

At the same, I won't sell short the romantic idea of thinking about the ideal of that interesting stranger you've never actually met either. Surely off in the distance somewhere, at some time...don't you think?

Can you fall in love with someone you've never met? I don't know, but I do know this - approach it with care, your heart is a precious gift to give - when you give it, give it with care.

      I know what your saying that the love you have for someone you never met is probably more of an ideal.I'll tell you though love when it comes you feel it and no matter if the person is right there or far away it feels the same.

      I do believe even if you do end up falling in love with someone you haven't met you eventually do have to meet but never expect perfection.I think you have to think I love this person but unconditionally at this point in time and it is a friendship.if it is meant to be something more it will be.I know it is possible to love someone you haven't met because I'm experiencing it myself but keeping things in perspective.Can I love in the real world yes of course but to be honest my world is small and people are not as friendly as they used to be.

      I think if you find love on the internet you use caution be realistic and don't expect too much too soon and think rationally.

      I know what I feel and I'm optimisic I believe anything is possible.

      SolaceMoon, I totally agree with you! I'm in this situation now. He and I are about 900 miles apart but have spent countless hours on the phone. We met by chance and emailed back and forth for 2 months before we started talking on the phone. I may not be completely in love with him yet...but I can feel myself falling (and this is not something that happens to me often). Although neither of us has told the other one, I think we both know. You can feel the connection and like you said, you just have to love them for who they are and when you meet, see what happens. At this point, I feel so much for this guy that the only way he could turn me off would be for me to find out that he's lied to me about something..and I seriously don't think that's the case.

      It's very interesting to read all this experiences.

      At the moment i write with a girl for almost two years who i absolutely adore, but there is one problem we both have relationships that are also important to us and we live not in the same country. We can talk about everything and we're also attracted to each other and we find something in each other that we both need. Call it romance or something else, but we both know that ending our relationships will probably not happen. My dilemma is that i feel i really love her but you are not able to take it one step further than keeping in touch with each other. The wonderful feeling of being in love can hurt even if you've never met each other.

      You can fall in love with someone you've never met. I've had loads of crushes, but what makes it worse is, this is the first time I've genuinly fallen in love and she's taken. :(

      I think it's possible to fall in love with someone over the internet. Love is a deep connection. One that can't be obtained at first glance. I think that when you're not able to hold that person close to you and see them and kiss them on a regular basis. It bonds you closer so that when you finally do meet.. it'll be magical. One day I'll be able to experience that magic. :)

      I'm actually in the situation right now.... I haven't met her yet but i'm really trying to. The fact is that i really do think i've fallen in love with her and we are currently dating. The drawback though is that we live 8 and alomost 9 hours apart... and another thing that bothers us are the people around us think that its not true love because of the fact that we haven't met

      I too am currently going through this experience of feeling sure i am falling in love with a guy whom i've been in email, text and phone communication for for 3 months. Its hit me like a ton of bricks and i've been trying very hard to suppress it, thinking it can not be possible. Now let me tell all you sceptics.....i've been married 3 times so its not as if i'm a stranger to relationships. I can honestly say i have never felt a connection like this before. Furthermore i've chatted with dozens of guys online and even dated a couple of them. I really was not trying very hard to meet someone as was quite happy with my lot......i truly believe after having read the various posts on here about this subject that it must be possible. I thought i was going mad and that this could not be real or happening to me. On the down side...i'm finding it extremley frustrating as it has awoken all my desires that have been laying dorment. I feel like a woman possessed i want him so much. Also, I worry there not be any phsyical attraction when we finally do meet. How awful would that be after such intense feelings....i'm so scared of this that i'm avoiding meeting him. Please help i think i'm going mad.

      Thanks for your comment, MaddiesMum, I understand the dilemma. 

      Go meet this guy and soon! 

      Sometimes I have observed women taking what they think is a small risk, like connecting online with someone who doesn't have their phone number, address, etc. - in hopes of a very large gain, i.e. meeting the soul mate.

      In reality, it's often just the opposite.  It's a big risk - falling for someone you've never even met - with a very unlikely payoff when everything is said and done. 

      Honestly, what you're feeling now is the shift between the assumption of a small risk to the understanding of how great this risk really is.  But being true to yourself, you've now put your biggest chip - your own heart - on the table.  Knowing that, you don't want to fold, you should play out your hand.

      But before you do, work through that honest assessment you've been making - the lack of a physical attraction could kill what has been kindled behind the scenes.

      Truly, one of the serious pitfalls of online dating is how a woman invests her heart in the process.  She often sets herself up for disappointment whether the guy turns out to be Mr. Right, but doesn't like her nearly as much, or just an average Joe - in which case she has invested a lot into something she really didn't want.

      Meet that guy as early on as you can, transparency is quite important in making romance work! Either way, then you'll know. And if it does work, you'll be asking yourself, why did we wait so long to meet?

      Having been through this a number of times myself, I agree you should meet as soon as possible, otherwise the fantasies you are each building in your heads will overwhelm reality. As much as you tell each other not to make expectations, it is human nature and it happens. I've gotten much better at this, since online dating seems to be the only way to meet guys. Trying my best to stay open and not fall so early, but easier said than done, no? Can't speak for the other person, although I am tired of him being disappointed when we meet. Not great for the ego. But hey, life is about trying.

      Kate, all the credit to you for hanging in there. I think you are very wise to think about meeting a guy early on. It may feel vulnerable to a woman, but doesn't it make you feel more vulnerable if you wait and come away hurt because the experience couldn't live up to expectations?

      I don't know what to say...I met someone I was not even wanting to meet at 3 in the a.m one night while he walked in to a restaurant I was eating at and he stopped completely what he was doing and focused completely on me and as if time ceased and the people around us did not exist ..I paid him no mind at first and then spent about an hour with him. Afterwards, I was still indifferent about him. He asked me to meet him the next day and I did and I saw myself falling at that moment. We spent 2 hours. I wanted to spend all day with him, but I couldn't...the next day he had to leave back home to Europe. ;( That was in January and we are still calling and writing and I send him care packages ..but he made it clear at the beginning of our writing back and forth that he was not interested in a long distance relationship...It has not stopped me or him from talking to each this point in October ...I think of him all day ..I keep telling myself it is the unattainability of this human being..but the energy I feel from him is so intense...he isn't even my type! lol. He brings out my femininity, makes me want to sell everything so I can go find him.. Love makes you do crazy things..I feel like i'm eight with my first crush.I can't get him out of my head and we don't say love or mention anything of the sort. On my part, it is mainly because of fear of rejection and looking like im infatuated. He is a little more open with being sweet and silly with me.. and I go crazy when I don't hear from him..

      He is a fairly busy man and yet calls me from every country he is visiting at that time..

      I tell I go again falling for someone who doesn't feel the same..but for some reason I don't feel that is true..something tells me he has intense feelings for me..a good friend (guy) told me," a guy is not going to continue talking to you like that without having some feeling or thought " which totally makes sense to me now.

      But look at me I am on a blog!!!talking about this..

      Im definitley of a hopeless romantic.

      I am going to put this in the simplest way possible:

      I honestly don't think its wise to weave a web of thoughts and create an ideal image of the person that you have never met. If you do so, you are most certainly setting yourself up for disappointment - and I say this from experience. I rushed into an online dating relationship and created an image of a person who I had never met! In the beginning its great with all the daydreaming but when reality sets in, boy is it a whole different picture! It was a big shocker for me, it was difficult for me to face the reality and I couldn't come to terms with it, I was so attached to the picture I had created that I thought I was in love with the guy who wasn't who I "thought" he was... in reality i wasn't attracted to him, did not find him intellectually stimulating, just overall did not like him... the "real" picture of him was the opposite of the "ideal" picture.. and when you are in love with the idea of that person, its very difficult to accept the reality.. its as if you are in a denial and believe that person to be who you want them to be. Long story short, BAD IDEA... you will leave yourself confused if you go along those lines and it doesn't end well... I'm just glad that I broke myself out of that web, phew! and met someone who is perfect for me =)

      I do believe that love comes later when two people meet and start knowing each other well. The best love so far is one that is developed and nurtured well until it sprout naturally and it would be beautiful. this is a great topic and I do like it. Thanks for sharing.

      i agree all of the posts above. i fall in love to someone whom i haven't meet in person. I found him by chatting (online) since April 2006, during we meet on internet, it was just his one week here in the Philippines, actually he is from Malaysia according to him. Since his YM account got virus then i suggest him to make another account so that my ym account can't be affected, then hence he didn't know how to crete new one, then i voluntary create new account for him, then every night we made online,,chatting..talking about our own lives,,

      I've fallen for a guy I started talking to on the internet, we started talking in 2006, we became extremly close (as close as you can be with someone online) in 2007/8, and now we don't speak at all, but ever since i got to know this person, ive thought about him every day, and still do and theres nothing i can do. i don't even know how to get back in contact with him, it would be akward, just sending him an email or text out of the blue, and maybe he doesn't feel the same. maybe he never did. All i know is that i've never felt this way about anyone before.

      I do believe u can fall in love with someone u haven't met. I'm going through that now. We live in the same city but we never are in the same place at the same time it just sucks. I'm only 14 though but he might go to my school next year and I just hope he does. He is the best thing in my life. He told me that I'm the best thing in his life last week. I just know in my heart I am in love with him.

      I met this guy online, on webchat actually & we have been talking for less than a year. I am in love with him and I told him that and he feels the same except we have never met each other. I am 15 and he's 2 years older then me and in September he is moving around my area, because of me. Were going to finally meet, i'm just scared what will happen. We talk on the phone for hours, we text, we talk online and sometimes we webchat. He makes me beyond happy and feel good about myself,and he says he tells me everything and has never lied to me & even though i never met him I just KNOW he's always telling the truth and I KNOW that he's never lied. I just know, but people don't understand, but what if it's different when we meet? I honestly don't think it will be because we feel like we already know each other in person, but I need help. Will it be different?

Im scared and unsure of what to do. i even think im going crazy, i know this sounds weird but i masterbate cause im scared that ill never meet the Mr Right. Someone answer cause i feel like im in the dark. Thanks

      My opinion about love is that it is an emotion, that 100% relies on your past and current experiences in life. These experiences mold you into the person you are today, tomorrow and so on. When you feel love towards someone, it is going to be a result of what, who, when and all the things that have taken place in your life, the good and the bad. There is no cookie cut view of what love is or will be. You will get to know people, some you will like, some dislike. Some you will love. You will fall out of love with someone. They will all push you in the direction of where your heart truly lies and what your mind, personality and heart yearns for in a person. Thus one day when you find someone and feel your in love again...the next thing you know...20 years later you just might still be with that same someone realizing wow...I am still truly blown away by this woman/man, and at that point I believe you'll understand why all the heartbreak and up and downs with love were necessary.

      Never turn down an opportunity, meet people locally, travel, meet more people, interact online. You never know where you just might find that person who runs away with your heart, making all your problems in the world sound like the voice of the teacher in a charlie brown episode.

      I almost like to think...finding love is the one true human right. Financial success can yield a far more comfortable lifestyle than most, but it can not replace the happiness you can have when and if you find that person who warms your soul from dusk til dawn.

      I am no english major nor a scholar by no means, i apologize....Just a mediocre 26 year old man that is in love and pursuing it 100%. Good luck too everyone and I enjoyed reading all of the posts!

      I met someone totally by accidident in a chatroom that I visited totally out of curiosity. We ended up exchanging emails and now we communticate almost daily, via emails and chats. I'm the biggest skeptic in the world, but I seemed to have fallen for this guy. We have so much in common and seem to connect on a level that nobody else in our lives connect with us. I never ever intended for this to happen. We care for and respect each other deeply, but love has never been mentioned, and I'm cautious to use the word. I love him for what I can't see. Whether he is Prince Charming or not, I have undeniable feelings for him. He knows this and he also has feelings for me, but he is in a relationship, and I'm not sure what to think. We are not planning to meet in the near future, but haven't ruled it out either. Feeling like this hurts and I hate it. I want to just walk away, but I can't. I feel stupid for falling for someone who is involved. But on the other hand, and I've said this to him, there has to be something missing or else he wouldn't be in contact with me. And I think that's caused him to think. I would never admit it at this point, but he makes me feel so happy and hurt so bad at the same time. If I ever got him in my arms, I'd never let go. But I just don't see it ever happening. If I ever get out of this, I will never ever do it again. I'd rather be alone.

      I was asked this question last week by the U.S. Visa Consular. Well, my interviewer didn't ask it, she gave her opinion that it can't happen and expected a rebuttal back from me. I had no answer for her but to look at the evidence of our realtionship. By what rule of measure was she expecting me to answer how my fiancé and I can love each other? I have been dating her for four years online. We chat every day. I know what she sounds like, looks like, and pretty much everything about her. Do people think love is only restricted to touch? I know it's not. It comes with time, getting to know a person. You either hit off like a house on fire or you don't. It's the connection you make with the other person. You don't need touch the person to make the connection. Billions of people love some form of god or another they've never met. And I ask, those who have married a person who turned out to be a wife beater or cheat on each other, what did it benefit them by meeting? Did they know the other person better because they looked in their eyes? Did they have a better chance at making it work? I don't think any of us has the upper hand. I'm not expecting perfection, nobody should. But now I have to go back to the consular tomorrow to give more proof that we do indeed love each other, and I sure hope they ask me this question again.

      Hi everyone,

      It was a relief to read the posts on here and realise that I am not the only person who has fallen in love with a man that I only know online. I started chatting with him in a chat roon 2006 but in January 2007 we both admitted that we were deeply attracted to each other and an online relationship developed. We live in different countries and for two years we were deeply in love and even talked about marriage and children even though we did not know each other personally. Anyway to cut a long story short one day when he came online and told me he was going on holidays to a certain place it just occurred to me that meeting me was not one of his priorities. It was even obvious that the though had not even crossed his mind even though we would chat for an hour every day online and he would tell me how much he loved me and was attracted to me. So that's how it ended it was on and off for a few months after but we just used to row about the most ridiculous things. But here I am 3 years and 4 months later and I am still deeply in love with him. I have never told anyone in my real life about him because I know they would judge. I don't want to be in a relationship with him I just want to get over him and get back to my life. Any advice would be appreciated.

      I thought I was alone in this online dating situation, now I'm not so lonely after all, 2 yrs ago i started talking to this guy online while i was still married, but my marriage already fell apart 5 yrs before and got back together for the sake of my 2 kids, but same problem arise, and that's when I started going online and making a story short i ask my then husband for a divorce, funny thing is I have not meet or even seen my online bf's face, we talk on the phone, we chat on yahoo and msn, both of us are so madly in love its crazy, he seen me many times on cam, photos that i sent, but ive never demanded to see him,I know its unbelievable that after 2 yrs he would not show himself, months before whilst talking to him on the phone one of his friends ask if he can say hi to me, he said ok, we said hi and bye but before he handed the phone back to him, his friend ask me if id seen Him, i said no but it doesn't matter to me and i know he is single i know his family history and in so many words i told him looks does not matter to me in any ways i love him, I don't know maybe he feels that if i see him i wouldn't love him anymore?how do i ask him to show his face on msn cam? i don't want to put so much pressure on him but it has been 2 yrs, i do love him so much is it destiny or just pure coincidence, i don't want to brag but my friends always tells me even complete strangers that i am a very pretty woman and so does he each time i send him a photo or on cam he never misses telling me i'm hot and beautiful, all i want is to see him but i don't know how to go about it

      I thought i was alone in this kind of situation until i read all those posts and realized i was wrong. i met this guy online, we've gone through e-mails before we started chatting. and as the time went by, i just knew i would fall for him, sooner or later. I've known that he's taken since our first e-mails but the reality even hit me more when we started chatting. my friends have told me to leave him. soon. but i just can't, even though it's torturing. we're still communicating until today, and i don't know if i can move on, soon, cause whenever i see him, i see the man i want to be with in my life. well. maybe I've been crazy.

      I am so glad I came across this thread, it's been wonderful to know I am not alone in the strange world I inhabit at the moment. My situation differs a little from some of the above but I would really welcome your opinion.

      I have 'been in love' with a gentleman for months, I have never spoken with him, he doesn't know I exist, but the way he makes me feel is unlike ANYTHING I have ever experienced before. The longing I have for him is almost unbearable at times, I cannot imagine myself with anyone else.

      I know a lot about him, things people say about him just compound the feelings more. It's not just pyhsical attraction (although that is overpowering, leaves me breathless to be honest), its the whole person, his voice, his personality, his attitude, his aura. We live 100 miles apart so I will never just 'bump into him', but am so compelled, so driven to go and find him. I'm an intellegent woman, I know my own mind and I'm a very sensible levelheaded individual. But my heart is driving me, it feels like fate? I feel ridiculous saying that, but the longing is so STRONG it's hard to ignore. Something in my mind says this year is significant for me, I really feel this is the time in my life that I have felt 'myself', the real me, not the version others want. I would really welcome your views, what would you do?

      ok so my story is also similar, i saw this girl once in a resteraunt and i was just taken by how pretty she was, a few months passed and then i sw her again. Through this year ive been bumping into her constantly at random place and everytime i see her im just bewildered. I finally had the courage to contact her, i sent her a message on face book and told her that i find her very pretty. she replied saying thank you and stuff. anyway last weekend i met her at an event and she said hi to me. i really don't know what to do, i mean weve never really met or really talked but i feel connected to her someway, i have powerful emotions. some might call it infatuation but i think its more than that i can really use some advice. im so lost :S im 18 btw

      Preacharob 7 years ago from Manchester,UK

      I have met someone and we been speaking for almost a year,

      but she lives in the states and me in the UK, I meet her on Facebook and we started chatting and we were really getting on with each other every day for months in contact, The new hype was the blackberry Phone and a few of my friends had one and she told me to get one so I did(which kind of silly, coz I didn't really have the money at the time.) so I got her BB pin and I thought it was amazing I could chat with her and get a message back instantly I was Like WOW this things amazing! so we got closer and closer saying how much we wish I was over there and she hoping she was here...but then her ex decided he wanted her back and she blocked me on FB & BB Messenger. It was weird I cried like baby over her and was so depressed I thought I was being stupid and why a girl I have never met can affect me, my friends mocked me and told me its never going to happen...anyway 2-3 months passed and I get spam attacked in my e-mail and I randomly got message from her and I thought i was seeing things so I asked which girl is this and she told me it was her. I was so happy! I was buzzing I got her back...she told me she split with her boyfriend coz he was an ass & didn't respect her and she missed we got back on the blackberry thing & carried on from their and like an idiot, It was one of those spur of the moment test outbursts(A You idiot moment coz you can't delete the message before they get it!) recently told her how I felt and she said well she does have feelings strong feelings but we have to meet, well my blackberry had to go in for repair and I lost contact with her on BB messenger, still speaking on FB but it wasn't the same, I was getting replied to like she normal does other guys were chirps her and she was flirting back and I was really hurt now...this is thing that cut me up the most she meet some other guy UK and she going move to his city and live with him when she originally was going to see me so jealously crept in looked on this guys thing and he was a boring kind of guy! I couldn't understand! I produce hip-hop, rap & Sing and wrote her a song and she still hasn't listened to it.... so like idiot I deleted her as a friend with realisation I did want to lose her as a friend. so I re-added her and explained to her I was upset that she listen to the song yet that alot stuffs going on in my life which is and I feel like she is the only one I can confide in...when she asked me why do think I got anything against you & I am bit too passionate at times but am good person and a good friend..she said the one who deleted me as friend this time and I don't know why...

      so I explained to her, I am a little insecure maybe coz of my past which is true I had really tough & traumatic childhood & teenage...i'm 28 now. which she knew coz i told months ago but I felt we growing apart again and I did not wanna risk going through that again because she became apart of my life were going to meet in September but I've messed up...she being stubborn and making me sweat till she adds me again I'm still awaiting friend confirmation on FB...I don't what to do coz I think i've lost a good friend I can confide in! I feel like an idiot for being jealous about some morbid guy she gonna move in with in the UK in a city next to mine. I think i've lost her and its my fault! getting to obsessive and jealous, over a bloody girl I actually not met in person, I feel stupid logically and my heart is heavy explained...I do not know if its love coz i've not met her in person & but I know I'm infatuated with her. I got feeling I blew it and I think if I send her a message today it will annoy her coz all that falling out thing happened yesterday.

      usually you mess things up when you meet people not a effing social network site & I feel stupid and annoyed at myself for getting feeling for girl I have never met properly. I don't what to do?

      hello all

      i am in a big mess, just browsed around and landed on this page!Hoping to find some light to my problem.

      I am in love with a guy whom i never met. we met on a social networking site. At first it was only fun to chat with someone who comes from a completely different culture. He was interesting showing me a part of the world i have never seen, making me see things from another angle. we both know deep down that it was very difficult for it to work between us.

      Yet we continue to talk,chat on a regular basis. I often questioned myself that maybe i am trying to think that he is the ideal one for me. maybe i am letting the ideal man i had since a little girl in my head takes over and i am under the misconception that he is the right one.

      But after much thought, i feel like i know his flaws,he knows mine and i feel i am incomplete without him. I know it sounds really crazy. usually i am the rational and realistic type but on this one, i used to think i have lost my common sense.

      when i have strong doubts if it can ever work between us, yet i cant let go of him, i am unable to live without him as he is always on my mind. I know its senseless, i feel trapped yet i need him. Can i possibly be in love with someone i have never met in my life?

      So much questions?? Can someone help me out?

      This was interesting to read for me. What if you have met someone on like a chatmachine site and then you have talked on like msn. Can you fall in love with them? You havnt met them because they live in another country. You havnt know each other for that long but you have already told each other heaps and you already seem to trust one another with your heart. If you don't know if the other person is even telling the truth about himself but you trust him so much that you believe everything he says, does that mean you love him?

      Is it even possible?

      he seems so perfect in everyway, he is like prince charming for me. I think im in love but is it only in my head? Can i love him already?

      Well I believe it is very possible to fall in love with someone over the internet! Its also a very difficult thing to do cause of the fact that everyone has that urge to be held and kissed.. though i do believe its a great way to get to know that person when its all u have as long as both have an understanding and are truthful with eachother u get to kno a person in a way that you prob wouldn't get to kno them if they were in front of you.. see for me the internet was all that i had to talk to my love... i was 15 she was 14 we met on accident ... she sed she was someone else n i sed i was someone else it was just all out of fun at first... when i was 15 i started to discover i liked women being one the internet was the best way to learn at that point... well i told the truth that i was really female and she thoguht it was funny reason being, she wasn't who she was but we continued to get to know eachother and we decided to start writing to eachother and calling ...boy i must have spent so much on callin card haha... theres never one day that goes by that i have ever stoped loving her ... im now 22 yrs old we still talk from time to time... i still would like to go meet her ...we broke up for reasons of the distance n the hurt it brought along ... weve gotten thru alot and help eachother even more ... she now calls me her angel .... i call her my heart... its possible to fall in love on the internet i believe ... its also very hard in my eyes ...

      Hey people.\

      So i am happily shocked that its true that anyone could fall in love with someone they have never met because that's my CURRENT SITUATION right now but i always thought i was crazy for loving someone i've never even seen in my life. Well , im currently 14 years old and the guy i truly love is 17.... Him and i live in the same city but there is no possible way for me to see him right now because of the dad i have. He's so strict about it and he doesn't like that boy because we once tried to sneak out at midnight but i got caught. That would have been the first time i my life to see him; Well my dad took everything away from me, my mysace, my facebook, my itouch, so i had no way to contact him. i felt like the world was just eating me alive. I know that at 14 girls think that any guy that tells them they love her, they'll immideatly fall in love with hiim, but i'm not like that. I know how guys are these days and how they only want one thing but this guy, he's just amazing and i believe he loves me and that he doenst just want to have sex with me. Well you know why i know that? Because we've been talking for almost a year now, never met, but we've webchatted, emailed, and talked on the phone for countless hours and yet he hasn't given up on me. this may sound stupid but we live like 5 miles away from eachother but my dad dad is like a God #2. he knows everything and he checks up on me like every hour :( i cant lock myself in the room and i cant go to the mall or anything by myself. he just knows everything. Oh another thing, In january i started talking to a guy in my school which i could actually see but yet i also talked to the 17 year old guy. Well the guy at my school asked me out and i felt lonely because the guy i truly love was the guy i couldn't see. Well he found out that i got a boyfriend while we both made a promise we weren't going to go out with anyone but eachother... so i broke up with the dude at my grade and called my true love, he was mad, sad, pissed, and wouldn't talked to him but he listened to him and i told him i felt lonely cuz i couldn't see him, so he forgave me

      I personally have never fallen in love with someone whom I have not met.

      I believe that to fall in love requires both chance/fate that you two encounter one another and also that the two of you make the choice to be with each other. Now once you have the chance to "meet" (physically or through another means), you will naturally fall for each other if you fit the other's criteria of an ideal mate.

      For me, I met a girl in while on a trip to Thailand. She was with her boyfriend traveling while I was with my family. We became friends and got closer over the course of several months via MSN.

      There were many problems however.

      1) She was 26, I was 20.

      2) She had a boyfriend.

      3) She lives in Taiwan, I live in California.

      Now, gradually over our conversations that we both enjoyed, she and her boyfriend grew distant and argued over her choosing to talk to me so much online. Another thing that drew us closer was the fact that she planned to visit America. I was her key to touring around America and I guess, now I realized, she came because she wanted to see me also. I guess over our conversations, we developed feelings for one another.

      So she visited me a couple months later and although she wasn't officially broken up with her boyfriend, she and I began to date because although we had only met briefly, meeting in person again pushed us closer than ever.

      I know this was more passion than reason because she was only here temporarily and there were a lot of things to consider. How could she stay in the states with me? She doesn't have citizenship or a green card. I would have to marry her. Also, she has no high-tech background so she can't find a company here that would be willing to sponsor her. Last, she doesn't have the money for an American education.

      The only way she can be here is if we got married...

      In addition, my parents would not approve of such a big age-gap no matter what. She and I would have to elope.

      All things considered, in the end, we parted as friends.

      It still hurts though because I miss our long conversations and our messaging is now totally one-sided (with me being the one who has to initiate every conversation).

      I still love her, but I know I have to let her go. She seems to have let me go already. She is back in Taiwan and in the process of breaking up with her boyfriend there. What hurts the most is that she was my first love =(

      We realized it'd be too hard and not worth it. We made a promise to see where we are in three years, but chances are she would be married by then and even if we are both single, how can we possibly make this love work?

      hopeless romantic. 6 years ago

      So im happy im not the only one going through this..

      There was one person on here that is almost the same situation as me. i never intentionally tired to fall for someone i haven't met face to face but it happened. it was actually been year ago two days ago since we started talking. First thing im 17 and he’s 18. Where i live in Canada and he lives in Europe. At first were just friends but we were physically attractive to each other and started to have deeper feelings then just friends. After awhile when i thought i fell in love with him it was great and everything. We had a fight one time where we said this wasn't going to work out and that we should just be friends again. Which had totally hurt? After awhile we started talking again like friends but after it just seemed to grow deeper again. Though this time i find out those hes just gotten into a relationship with this girl. i was hurt but I was like if she makes you happy then im happy. I just wanted the best for him, and if she was it then im not going to stop him or make a big deal out of it. Though even though he is dating her he still talks to me and tells me things like when we were in love. When he told me he loved me again i was really iffy about this, I didn't take it to the heart cause i don't want end up dealing with my heart broken plus he was still is with his gf. I tell him i love which i do but i honestly think that you can love someone online that you haven't met to a certain extent where until you finally meet them then you will know if you were really in love or if it’s an infatuation. During the whole time we always talked about how much we wanted to meet each other and stuff. Then i finally came to myself that i want to meet him soon as possible and im planning to go next summer after school is done with few of my friends. i don't know what I really should do sometime a go my family found out about him and things got out of hand because, my family is strict and they don't believe i love him and tell me things to add more to this case as it is. Now I feel like I don't know what do while he went on vacation for almost a month it hurt and i felt so depressed when i didn't get to talk to him. You see we aren't in a relationship so we can date who ever we want if the opportunity arises, that's why he has a girlfriend it hurts but im not jealous of her but more like I wish I could be lucky as her to be the one to be with him. Like I envy her position and wish I could be her in a sense. i don't hate her and i have no negative feelings toward hers. i also actually like other guys as well but from a far like i think at this guy really good-looking and stuff but it’s nothing more than crush of appearances. So I know that im not fully in love him if I can still like other guys. What i know is that he actually confronted with me last time we talk where he said "don't you think im sick that you know i have a girlfriend. then i asked do you love her, he said yes and i was i see and then he said but i think i love you though as well and said then whenever he talks to me he forgets about her. I told him must be confused all he said was maybe" you see this really got me thinking and questioning what i really should do. i really love him not his character or the ideal of him as some people had said to me. i mostly care about him being happy, safe and making sure he doesn't push himself to hard that's why i thought if he’s happy with his girlfriend then im okay with it plus what can you really do. i don't really know if i should just let him go because i know that someone’s going to be hurt in the end may it be me, her or all three of us. While i think this i don't think i can i have a very strong attachment to him and i just don't know. i know that he’s cheating on her emotionally with me and i know for sure that he can't be really in love with her if he is.

      Then i think of all the things that are in the way of me being able to be with him

      such as 1. Distance 2. His girlfriend. 3. My family. 4. What will happen after we do get to meet will we hit it off or will there be spark.

      These are all the things i always question myself all the time. I just don't know what to do.

      The rest of you may find this hard to believe, but I am almost 60 years old and in the same situation -- kind of. I work at a hospital and met a man who was grieving deeply over the loss of his wife. I visited him a couple times in connection with my work. The last time I went to see him he was asleep, so I left a note with my cell phone number and e-mail address on it. A few days later he called me. He was horribly sad and depressed and for months that's all we talked about. He called me every few days (he doesn't have a computer) and we had the same conversation over and over. I know it sounds nuts, but I loved being there for him and I had found him physically attractive even when he was in a hospital gown. He was very heavily drugged while in the hospital, and although he told me when we were together that I was attractive, I sometimes wonder whether he even remembers.

      Now -- get this -- we have been talking on the phone for 13 months. About a year after his wife died he started to snap out of his grief and his personality changed dramatically. We really started talking and kind of flirting. But the problem is, he got in the habit of waiting for me to call. Granted, it's hard for me to talk while I'm on the job, but I also don't want to be the one who initiates everything. So, everybody, what do I do? Should I stop calling him and wait for him? When we do talk, sometimes it's for four or five hours and he shows no desire to get off the phone. He had a very abusive mother and seems afraid of rejection, of bothering me. Only trouble is, so am I. Any advice? I can't believe I'm feeling this way at my age. I was married 30 years to a very difficult man and finally got away. I was happy just to have a little peace -- never thought I'd feel 17 again.

      so now that i've read all these posts i think that its safe to say that i believe i am falling for this guy that i barely even met..... online. i have no idea why but whenever we talk i have just been happy. like super happy to where when i see that he just got online my face lights up, my stomach gets the butterflies, my heart feels light. but the only problem is, is that he lives in germany. and i live in california. i'm not sure how he feels but we always set a time to talk and right now as i'm writing this i'm waiting for him to get online.

      i have fallen for only two other guys online but they were years ago and this feeling that i have for this guy is way stronger than the ones i felt for the other two. i just recently got out of a relationship that lasted for 3 years and i fell out of love with him months before i had the guts to end it. but what i feel for this guy is so amazing and just so out there that i sometimes doubt that this would even work.

      i wasn't looking for a man or anything like that just friends for now. but since we've been talking everything is so natural. like he'll watch tv and so will i while we're webcamming. its like so normal and feels so right to me.

      i asked my best friend about what i should do and she told me to take it easy keep talking to him but don't expect anything to happen between us. i want to see him in october if i have enough money for that. just to be able to see him for the first time and to actually spend time with him for more than a day or two.

      so now i'm just waiting to see how he feels.

      I have met a man in Ireland online. we have been talking for almost 18 months...everything seems perfect. I'm going back to Ireland next month and we plan to meet, but we also have told each other that we both know things might be totally different when we meet...we both have decided to have no expectations, just meet and see what happens. we will always be best friends no matter what though.

      It's nice to know other people are in the same boat... Misery in numbers, I suppose.

      Sharing your situations with everyone has definitely helped me, thank you all, so I'll share mine.

      I've been talking online with this guy for nearly six years now. At first we were just friends, talking to each other sporadically without revealing much about ourselves.

      Two years ago, I dunno, things just sort of changed. I would start going online only for the purpose of talking with him. We'd talk for ridiculously long amounts of time and not stop until one of us realized it was four in the morning already. We'd talk about ourselves, our lives, our problems. We really opened up to one another. He became more than a username and a digital avatar. The more I learned about him, the more I realized I was falling in love with him. I loved his personality, his strengths, his flaws, his imperfections. We swapped photos and that only made me love him more.

      And as soon as those feelings came, I tried really hard to ignore them. I felt so unbelievably stupid for even thinking about feeling this way, for feeling so strongly for a guy I never met! It took a while, but I guess I got over myself.

      Until one day when he was talking about a major problem in his life, and I could tell, even over the internet, how hurt and upset he was. Then, well, all those feelings came back.

      It was different though, you know? I was more sorry because he was so hurt, more angry at the cause of his pain, and more torn up because I was four hundred miles away and could do nothing substantial to help him. More than anything though, I just wanted to make him happy. That day the idea came into mind that I would have given up anything to make him stop suffering. To some guy on the internet!

      I think about him every day now, but I've never told him how I feel. I feel so silly about the whole thing, like I wanna just curl up and die. I really, truly value his friendship, and I don't want to mess it all up by telling him I love him if he doesn't feel the same way.

      We're both eighteen, so we've gone off to different colleges. Recently, he made it clear he wanted to spend less time on the internet, and that he was quitting the program we used to talk to one another. Before he left, he told me he loved me.

      So if I can offer any advice at all, it's this:

      If you are sure you are in love, tell them, before you miss the chance.

      To all the posters here who are in the same situation as myself, I feel for you.

      I know it hurts like hell. ):

      oh God.. the same thing is happening to me. I met this guy from greece on a chatroom and there was something about him that attracted me. I'm from the US and at the beginning i thought he was going to be just a friend, but we been talking for a month and its like if we know each other since forever. He says he likes me a lot and that he wants me to be the mother of his child, but i don't know if he is just playing with me. I told him that and he says he is not a player and he got offended. We can chat for more than 6 hrs in a row and never get tired. Time flies by when we are talking. I fell for him but Im not sure if he feels the same way about me. All day long im thinking of him and i cant sleep at night because im too anxious and want to talk to him. I don't know what to do, i mean its just a month since i met him and i feel that i love him with all my heart. that never happened to me before and i didn't believe in long distance relationships nor in falling in love with people you don't know.

      I feel in love after my second marriage failed. It feels good yet bad. the same day i finally fessed up because i was was going to stop talking to this man, he said the same thing to me in email about the same time i sent him one. the min i saw his pic i knew we would talk. he contacted me first. i have dated many men, married 2 and i have never met a man i can actually say is sweet and like the man i really wanted to marry. my grandpa. he is handy, carpentar, likes my stupid humor. only my kids got it before lol! and he likes that am an adovacate for the disabled. most guys find that a turn off. my child has autism and to many that has been a big turn off he knows what i am dealing with he has customers who have kids with autism. i pray this works out. i stopped talking to him for a while because of how i felt. i hate it. im scared to get hurt again, but i am sick and will need a translpant in the future. so i prayed to god to send me a man like him before i die. maybe miracles do happen. i too feel that alive feeling. he has divorce a much younger wife and for the life of me cannot understand what he likes in me. he says it is because i am not playing game. i was direct about thingsi thought about when before i would be more cautious. i figured if i cannot get a transplant i have not hing left to lose might as well say wha ti really want to say. oh hell, it made me go walk a mile yesterday i felt so good and i have been so sick... if they told my ckd is not there anymore i would fall of my chair. he even likes the same food. i never told him he told me first. pinch me!

Be careful, love ,don't do anything dumb because with every bad thing comes a good thing. and noone said life was easy but if its all goin bad when something goes good you'll appreciate it. God helps . hes amazing. love is____________.only you can fill it in once you feel it.god bless.Probably not checking back for a while but hope it helps.-Cheese~

      I may have you all topped on this one. I met a girl through in Oct. 2006. She contacted me originally. We have talked on the phone alot and up to about 2 weeks ago she has become distant and said she "needed a little space". Before this we were very close. Our schedules and other circumstances have made it that we haven't met yet after 4 years. It has been taxing at times, but we are very close and want to be with each other, but i'm not sure what's going on at this moment. This is the first time she has done this in the 4 years. She was concerned i'd give up and change my phone number and she'd have no way to talk to me in the future. We were always scared to give up because we are close and our friendship. So giving up and not knowing what we missed out on is scary. It's the toughest thing i've done in my life. We live 5 hrs apart and I feel bad it's taken this long, but I don't want to give up without seeing each other. It's been about a week without talking. She texts me and tells me that she just needs a little space. What does that mean really?... Just thought i'd throw my 2-cents in. I'm upset about this!

      In three days, I will be meeting a man I met online two years ago. He lives in a different country, but that doesn't stop us from believing that if we work hard at it, we can make this relationship work. He is the only man who has made me feel the way I do when he asks me to marry him and if these next few weeks work out (and we have no doubts that it will), in about two years, he will become an American citizen to be with me and we will get married. To us, it is not a possibility that we have a future, it is a certainty. I don't care if I met him online, all I know is that I found someone I can grow with in age as well as in every other aspect of life. I hope others can find this same special relationship either on or offline.

      OK 6 years ago I met a Spanish girl online and we became very close, just like what others have said here, we met in London 2 months later and it was perfect, she even moved here to the uk, the love went over to the real world, we where together for 6 years but sadly it went wrong in the last year. It took me a long time to get over her, and I don't think she is over me ether.

      Anyway, why im writing here now?, out of the blue it has happened again, I never wanted this to happen, to even fall in love in the real world, I don't want to be hurt again, but anyway, this time its with a Turkish girl, she is amazing!

      Thing is I know what its like and I cant believe its happening again, it can feel wondfull, but people, keep your feet on the ground, don't let others be the centre of your existence, its ok to love, but there is an element of elusion on the net, get some webcams, be totally honest at all times, and you can make a real and lasting connection with someone. Good luck. mail me if you want to talk, aaronetATyahooDOTcom

      If you are hurt like some of these sad stories, Know this, you can find someone else, I never believed it, but im the walking evidence! try okcupid, best place to meet someone online.

      TwistingSoul 6 years ago

      I have fallen for a guy who lives 3states away. I can't call it love, but its the first time I have ever felt my soul communicate with another in such deep levels. I can actually feel the passion between us. Its hard to understand what this feeling is. When we skype, our eyes meet one another with the same intense fire burning inside of our cores. He has gone through some horrible experiences in his life; more than your normal person considering his age (him 23, me 20). But the moment I started to read his eyes and look beyond what the outside world sees, I found the light inside him. I heard his soul talking to me, and it was beautiful yet tragic. Tears actually came to my eyes. We did not exchange words at all, it was all said through deep looks.

      We have taken things slowly. It started out as an exchange of intellectual conversations; this led on to sharing a bit about who we are; and now it is to the point where every part of us is twisting in agony to finally meet. I have just ended a 6year relationship, and I was not looking to find such a person. And more surprising, I had never felt such rush of feelings before. My soul screaming with passion for this man. When we first exchanged emails, it was for a random, one time conversation; I was not seeking anything else other than quench the boredom I had that night.

      He is an asteroid that is burning uncontrollably, breaking through my atmosphere.

      I will be graduating college in 2weeks, and once I have things settled, we will plan our long awaited encounter.

      Hi...I think its possible...right now Im in that possition I met this amazing guy and since we started talking everything was wonderful but I had broken heart before twice and pritty bad so when I met him I never ever thought i was going to find myself almost in love with him

      he is a good friend but now he became more than that I cant stop thinking about him and want so much to meet him in person but Im afraid that he wont feel the same

      he is kinda older than me and he told me he likes me a lot he thinks about me but he told me that its impossible for me to feel love for him when we haven't actually met in person that burst my bubble and left me feeling a totally idiot for tellin that

      he would like to have me in his life but he cant believe I can be already in love with him so that hurts

      Im thinking about completely shut him out of my life and left things like that .

      but yes i do believe its possible.

      So im here to vent, and tell my story... my name is sophie, 16 and I live in the US. And well, Im pretty sure I am in love, or something..with this guy who lives in New Zealand. I don't actually know how we met through facebook but he added me over a year ago, last October. And well, in the beginning we talked on and off just about cultural differences and such but now we talk every single day. We love the same music, the same mind set just everything falls together with us. I tell him everything and he is literally my best friend. We msg through facebook inbox msging...we both have fb connected to our phones so its like txting and such. We have only been able to see each other via webcam 3 times since he doesn't have one himself. I know I mean the world to him as he does to me.

      The only reason why I even looked this topic up is because he has gone off to Vietnam for a trip with his class, for its summer holiday for them. I am just sitting here wondering if he is thinking of me. We have planned for him to move here as soon as he turns 18. Ill be going off to college but to have him here would be amazing. Im not sure if he feels the same way about me as I do him. but not long ago he asked me if it was possible to love someone whom you have never met, and ever since then that's all I can contemplate. I know all of these stories here sound insane and completely unreliable but you all understand how it it feels. I cry out of frustration, and the inner desire to just be with him already. Im so young, and to throw myself head on into this type of situation scares me. But to be completely honest he is perfection to me, his flaws and all. Im so ready for him to come back, 30 days is too long.

      I think im just going to wait it out until we meet, and if then he feels the same way I do, there is no doubt in my mind that I would literally marry him right there.

      i met a guy through the internet on our mobile phones, at the time i had joined just to chat to new people as i had kinda given up on men! he messaged me and i was struck by how honest he was and sweet, he suggested swapping numbers and i finally agreed, that was oct 2010 its not dec, he lives about 2 n half hour car journey from me we have not met yet - im shy wanted to wait and now im reasy we have no money cos of xmas! he told me about 3weeks ago hes in love with me, i find him gorgeous, funny, sweet, caring, honest and i have strong feelings for him we are in contact all day everyday. however we have had some falling outs which we have out down to misunderstanings and frustration we cant show each other how we feel. meeting in january im scared as ive met guys off the net b4 and they have not liked how shy i am, as im not shy on net/txt etc he says he wants me for me whether im loud or quiet.

      what do you all think of us falling out- is it a bad sign? or just like me n him think??

      You see at 54 years of age, I have no idea, no frame of reference about what it feels like to be in love. It is sad quite frankly, yet, I am hopeful that someday I will meet someone that will inspire in me that feelings that many of you have expressed.

      In conclusion, I hope each of you finds the love of your life and hold on to it for a life time. You have no idea how special you are to know what it is like to love. I envy all of you.

      I am in the same situation like all of you... I met this guy 6 months ago on fb, ( i never add noone that i don't know personally, i think i added because i liked him at the first time i saw ).

      First we began to chat every days, about everything, our lifes, family and a lot of other things. I started to love him, but i couldn't felt this feeling because he is married. He was persuaded to his family at marry, is his culture... he just knew his wife in the wedding day. He told me always the truth since the first day.

      The days passed and my feeling began to be more strong... One day he told me that he love me... i was happy and scared at the same time. We live in different continents, different cultures, civil state, religions, just our feeling is the same.

      He ask me every day to marry with him... I love him but i know that is an impossible love!!

      I actually searched about this recently because I wanted some assurance that I wasn't crazy. I am madly in love with someone I have met online. We weren't even looking for each other - it just 'happened' and the connection we share is unbelievable. I have never known this level of love in life and I have had several relationships and have even been married. I've never missed someone so bad that it hurts, the way I do with him. Or light up everytime I see he's online or see his name on my caller ID. He's all I can think about, all day long, every day.

      We have already shared those three little words..he shared them with me first, even though I felt the same already - I was scared to express that first, afraid that it was too soon and might scare him off. The feeling I got when he said them, is a feeling I'll never forget. A feeling I have never felt before.

      What I love is the level of emotional and mental connections we already share. The sexual connection we'll eventually share will just be icing on the cake, for me.

      The thing that's important, above all, is to be open and honest. Since we are that way with each other, I have no doubts or fears when it comes to our first meeting. I feel comfortable in the fact that he is everything I already know he is.

      Hi every body! In my opinion 'love' is a widely misunderstood concept that is why there is always contradiction of opinion. I suggest that if you really want to understand the term love you must read 'I have never ever loved you' by Veerendra Srivastava which is available world wide on all major book stores.

      I truly believe that you can love someone you've never met. I met someone from a chatroom a few years ago, at which time I was in a relationship. We talked briefly but nothing ever became of it. Recently my 7 yr relationship had ended and out of boredom I sent this man an instant message. We spent many hours online telling one another about our lives. We have swapped pics and #s. He has even seen me on webcam but I have not seen him. It turned out he is the one I have longed for all my life. Sweet, caring, romantic and loving. He calls me when he wakes up in the morning and before he goes to bed at night. We chat online almost daily for hours on end. He tells me everyday how beautiful I am and how much he loves me. I wasn't looking for any relationship but I'm blessed to have found Sam.

      Jim - you know this how?

      Personally, I think you totally can. Wait - let me rephrase that.. I think that you can fall in love with what someone portrays to you online - that is the only drawback. Until you've actually been around that person - who knows?

      Me - I'm kind of in the same situation as many of you. My situation is strange - I have been talking to this guy for over 2 years - and he doesn't even live that far - just about 8 hours from me. The problem is that he is married. That leads me to believe that first and foremost I am some sort of fantasy online "fling" - maybe someone to talk to for him. He has told me that he loves me - and I've jokingly told him that I love the things he says and what not. I honestly know that I have very strong feelings for him. So strong in fact that I would probably run off and marry this man and have like 12 babies! He will never know that though. What do you guys think?

      That girl you fell in love with over the internet or you thought you fell in love with at the time, and then you don't know what happened to her. It makes me think of when a boy thought he fell in love with me but I just couldn't take the pressure so i deleted all my online stuff and set it so my emails bounced back to sender. Just made me think of that.

      Yes it's possible on one hand - On the other hand hard to really know how doable it would be in real life I think because so many things are NOT in the way.

      But then on this other hand.. it can finally be for the right reasons.. Their mind and yours = communication.

      Isn't that one of the BIGGEST reasons relationships fail after all?

      And don't we often think its love for the looks or whatever then later find out it was anything but love?

      So it only makes sense that it feels so "right" for the communication of our minds for a change.

      Yes these are the reasons falling in love online can in fact be MORE real and at the same time not enough, As with the need for touching.

      I've done it for a very long time but meed to move on for myself and for him just to save our friendship because the frustration is too much for me now, since he lives far far away.

      But yeah I know I love him.. I just don't know if it would work in reality if we met that's all, But the freindship is strong enough to survive even after I move on to a real touching closer to home relationship, at least it is for me that's WHY I loved in to start with anyhow.

      I can see us staying friends and just seeing it as one of those weird things that happened and even laughing about it later on.

      I tried so hard for me not to fall into this situation, but here I am, looking up online if its possible to fall in love with someone you've never met.

      My situation isn't necessarily an online dating one, though it kinda seems like it now.

      We met on Facebook. He added me. I never add new people I don't know. But hes a dancer, so I was like cool.

      I knew from the start that there something about him that just attracts me so... and I fought hard not to fall for him. But we talked. And talked. And called each other. And skyped and all that.

      And here I am...

      I don't know if to really believe what happened or what???

      We live in different countries. Hes coming to mine in just a little over a week.

      Crazy world, huh??

      Love can do all sorts of things. I met someone in an online game. She lives in the US and I am from Southeast Asia. We connected through the game and I made a Facebook account so we could connect.

      We've broken up for almost 2 years now but I still remember everything. We knew each other online, but I know the love was all real.

      I think I'm in love but I'm not sure. I've never met the guy, but I feel as if I know him really well.

      Whenever I see a picture of him or something i get an odd feeling in my stomach, almost like nervousness, but also something else. I always feel really happy when I think about him (which is every day) and just can't get him out of my head. I thought it was love and even now, after reading this writing, i still think it. So maybe i do believe in love at first sight.

      There is this guy, We've never met, except once. In my dreams! He is a real person.. He's actually famous-ish.

      I would hear his song on the radio and shivers would decend down my spine, my stomach would churn and of course.. I'd blush. I am always daydreaming of us together, Never does he leave my mind. But, He's older... Some say al little too old. I think age is but a number! Ahh.. 12 years is a little insane though. I THINK NOT! haha. I read through all his blogs and the way he writes... I've never read such fun, rediculous, yet touching writing in my life! Ah, Maybe this is just my overreative imagination taking over... I've "loved" him for just over a year now. Is this love?

      I have been talking to a man whom I randomly added on FB through a mutual friend over 2 years ago. Thought he was gorgeous. We'd send msgs back and forth but drifted apart. I guess we had our own lives, I was in and out of (hurtful) relationships with other guys. I guess we thought that because we live 4000miles apart, there was no point in fully making an effort to contact each other. I had planned to go see him back in august but was a little scared as this man seemed too good to be true. Loving and said all the right things on top of being gorgeous. I rescheduled my flight to go to trinidad carnival in march and decided to spend a nite in st lucia (where he lives) on the way home. So a couple mths before I met him our conversations became more frequent, I'd even told my friend that he looks like my husband (like the man of my dreams). I arrive in St Lucia. From the moment I set eyes on him, I knew I'd marry him. We spent a night and day together. I will never forget that time for as long as I live, it was truly magical, I believe I've found my soulmate and he says he's found his wife :-) I met his mother too. Since I got back to the UK, our conversations have got intense. I love him so so much. I'm going back in july. I'm 26, he's 28. I would marry him tomorrow, I'm ready. Guys, don't give up on someone whom u love over the internet despite the distance. One of you will have to move if u fall in love, but if u've truly found your soulmate, it will work. Just don't leave it too long to meet them in person. I must add that I wasn't in love with him when I met him online just had strong feelings. He says he fell in love with me back then. But when I met him....WOW I just knew he was the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.

      Wow. I feel so amazed with all of your comments. I just felt that, I was not alone and that there are a lot of people like me who are loving/dating someone online.

      I'm turning 19 on June 4th and he was turning 24 on July


      (January 03, 2011) My moms close friend showed this guy a picture of me and he thought I was cute. Too bad 'cos it was their ship's last day at the base so we haven't got the chance to meet and I was at Manila that time. 4 hours drive from the base. He was asking if he could get my number, OF COURSE I GAVE IT! lol I fell in love with his voice the first time we talked. (; It's like my heart was beating 3 times in 1 second. Then were exchanging emails, he was calling me (but I don't know what to say) I'm just so speechless.

      (February 02, 2011) He was back to Virginia. Off to ship. He messaged me on Facebook, I thought that he wouldn't like me. and after a month of talking to him, I realized that I should confess my love to him. I just tole him that, He should blame himself for being so kind and sweet to me cos that was the reason why I love him right now and I'm very thankful to God cos I've met someone like him in my life. He answered, "are you trying to make me fall in love with you?? because I think it's working." My heart almost explode that time. :( and that's when "love" begins.

      (March 10, 2011) I'm just playing with the Facebook's relationship status. I changed mine to an open relationship with him, suppose to be "in a relationship". It would be embarrassing if I'm going to change it again right? but I wasn't expecting that he would change it again and put it on a "in a relationship" status. I'm not expecting that it would turn out like this. It was actually the beginning of our love story, we're now officially a couple. He was the first guy that I introduced to my family and I've met his mom, dad and sister. (Through skype) He was the sweetest boyfriend I've ever had. He was singing like crazy, dancing, yawning and doing crazy stuffs while we videochat lol.

      (April Fools) He fooled me!! He was saying his ex wants to get back together with him. I almost cried! then he messaged me again! APRIL FOOOOOLS!!! I really wanna slap him lol and now I miss him, haven't talked to him the whole day. He is probably busy at work (the reason why I'm staying up late so I could see him online) We have 12hrs time difference. So its kinda hard.

      but the good news is, He was coming back here on June! I CAN FINALLY SEE HIM! HUG & KISS HIM! :)

      I felt foolish googling a topic like this but it made me feel more comfortable once I started reading all these posts. It took me more than a minute to scroll down this whole page, and what a feeling it was. I, too, am in a very similar situation. 700 miles apart. That won't stop me though. It's been 4-5 months and we have grown deeply in love with eachother. We have so many things in common, it's scary. She's like the girl version of myself, it's just breathtaking. The problem is both of our families aren't fond of this "meeting others online and starting a relationship" thing. Another thing wrong is that I'm 17, and she's only 14. People always joke around with me and call me a rapist for doing that and it really makes me mad. They also say "stop trying to get with a girl halfway across the world" making it seem so looked down upon. [that is starting a relationship online] I'm a senior in high school and I'm planning on going to a college near her. I've already been accepted too. This whole fiasco has brought many arguments between me and my family and her and her family. I just hate every bit of it. I'm trying everything I can to make this work and I'm confident I will. I never would have even dreamed meeting someone online that can turn out to be a possible soul mate can happen. I constantly remind myself, "She's the one." We always tell eachother how much we love eachother, and when I hear her voice it makes my day 100x better. We talk on the phone hours everyday, txt, webcam, chat online, even play ps3 online together. It really is special, something else... All in all, I love her with all my heart and vice versa. We are both confident that we can spend the rest of our days together. Not so common you hear teenagers getting together and lasting their relationship for the rest of their life? Right. Probably happens 0.001% of the time, I assure you that. I also assure you, I'm going to stop at nothing to see her, to be with her, to hold her in my arms, to spend my life with her, and to love her with every ounce of love I have in my heart. Again, as said before, this is something else; something out of the ordinary. It's love...

      What everyone has shared has really been helpful. I met a guy in a myspace chatroom about 3 1/2 years ago. I was 14. At the time I was just a young girl who loved the first guy who happened to cross my path. I could, and still can, share everything with him and I can be completely honest with him. I also think he has been all-around honest with me too. We've seen eachothers webcams countless times, chatted using Skype, called using a phone (one time costing $300). He is 7 years older than me. I'm now 17, he's 24. He's in Pakistan. I'm American, but currently studying abroad in China.

      I think that over time, on the internet, if two people are being completely honest, you can gain a little insight into their personality. It certainly does not replace meeting someone for real in person and physically connecting. However, in a way you can fall in love with someone on the internet. We have argued various times about how we would ever meet, the frustration and the pain seems so real. My friends and family never understood how real it feels to me. I do believe it is love and I desperately hope we'll have the chance to meet in the future. I also think it's important to remind myself not to create an "ideal" person. I found myself countless times fantasizing what kind of person he is in real life. I guess all I can do is look at the situation and him realistically and if I do ever meet him, do so with an open mind for what he might be like in person.

      But I'm still wondering, with such a great possibility of this relationship failing in real life, if it truly feels like love right now, is it worth meeting each other?

      just would like to share with you guys this kind of experienced which i never thought could be for real.

      I've met someone in a social networking site, until one time he confess that he's falling in love with me, i don't know on how will I react to it, because the first thing that comes in my mind is we are far from each other, i don't know if we will able to fulfill our obligation or responsibility to each other, i am so confused, but as we continue talking, i realized that how will i know if this thing will gonna work out if we didn't try it, so we did, we commit to each other, he told me that distance is not a hindrance for the two person who is deeply in love to each other, there's a lot of gadgets or materials that we are going to use for us to communicate. i could really feel that he's really in love with me, so as i am, even though I'm afraid, i did gave him the love what he needed. until one time, he surprised me, he goes home and finally met me, i never thought he will going to do that, but yes he did.. i am so happy because i thought it was just on the net but now it is for real, we are now together..

I've met this wonderful girl online and we text every day now for about a year, but i think i've fallen for her even though we haven't met in person. I think i'm nuts and its driving me crazy cause i don't even know how she feels about me. I have had crushes and it always ends up hurting me in the end so i give up alot. I need advice, should i suggest we meet or do i wait, i don't want to mess this up.

      Wow,these comments are interesting. I'm usually not for online dating, until I was taking an online class & a well-educated young man (10 yrs my jr..he's 20's & I'm 30's) popped in requesting to be a friend on my page. I was hesitant but added him. Eventually, he wanted to chat..still hesitant (b/c of his different nationality),I said, "why not?" He was not only able to help me w/my work, but after the first chat, he showed himself live on webcam! I was quite pleasantly surprised,as he is a gorgeous guy, but I refused to show myself on webcam until at least a month later. He was pleasantly surprised also. We're only friends w/different cultures & religions, but after a short time, he admitted his sweet sentiments towards me and listed a variety of reasons. As a precaution,I politely turned him down as far as accepting his sentiments in such a short pd of time, but I was still interested in getting to know more about him. I see that he has a beautiful spirit & waits hrs. for me to get online. Although his time is hours ahead of me, he'd sacrifice his time & talk til morning, although it's early evening for me. His passion for life and love is drawing me to him, & he never mentioned wanting to visit my country, until I asked his opinion of college in my country. At first he said no, too far. Now, after researching the education here, he wants to visit my country (in a neutral setting, of course)& possibly finish his studies here in a couple of yrs. as well as meet me & I'm really attracted to him. I already see his bad habits (& he sees mine)& like him anyway, b/c he doesn't mind showing his bad habits in front of me! Although I don't like his bad habits,I like his transparency! Or, maybe he doesn't realize that they're bad habits! Oh,I didn't mention he doesn't speak English, but I speak his language. Although I'm not expecting a relationship yet, I would at least like to meet him soon, b/c I feel that we'd be missing out on a great opportunity of what could be if we didn't.

      I disagree. I think its very possible to fall in love with someone you've never met. But the downside to it is wether or not that person is gonna fall for you too. If you can learn about the person, study them persay you know get an idea of who they are and their personality, then yes movie star or normal person alike you could fall in love with them yes. I admit most cases yes are usually just cases of being starstruck or the ideality of it but do not discredit those few who experience real love for those people. Love is the most powerful force known to man, it is unstoppable and uncontrolable. When you are really in love with someone wether they love you in return or not you cant just stop loving them because you don't want to anymore. You cant control who or when you love anymore then your chance at catching the wind in your hand and putting it in your pocket. My advice is look for love yes but don't search for it. Let it find you because you cant make yourself fall in love with someone. If you don't feel some sort of emotion or feeling in the beginning at least a little bit then your probably not going to, and i find this to be true from personal experience and its happened with absolutely every guy ive tried dating that i didn't have some sort of feeling for at the start. So ladies and gents alike. My answer to this question is yes. It can happen, but you have to be able to distinguish the difference between love, lust, and attraction which are all similar but different things.

      I think you can fall in love with someone you have not met. Love is more of a deep connection than anything. I fell in love with someone from America, im in England. We video chat every single day and we plan on meeting, he knows every little detail about me and i do with him. Its easy to fall in love with someone on the internet, and i think its a good thing too. I mean, i hate the distance but i haven't slept with this guy yet so it doesn't cloud my judgement. Also i had time to get to know him, his dreams, his lifestyle, his whole personality without getting in too deep. It took me a long time to realise my feelings for him, i didn't confess till he told me since i didn't want to cloud his judgement. i didn't meet him on a dating website, i met him through a movie site. He wrote an interesting comment on a documentary and i emailed him to speak about it more.

      I think, as easy as it is to fall in love with someone over the internet in the long run its difficult. If you set a date to meet and know where you stand with the person and be real open with them it'll work. We have been speaking for a year and a bit now, i only discovered he had feelings for me 8 months ago. As i said, i know every little detail about him. He has spoke to my mother and i have with his mother, its really good to have the whole 'meet the parents thing' it made me trust him a lot! but it happened by chance. when you fall in love with someone over the internet they can share their deepest secrets with you without shying away or twisting the truth because theres a barrier. theres distance between you, i have never known so much about any past boyfriend or even friend than i do with him.

      You fall in love with a persons personality right? you don't fall in love with them because of their touch or their smell. You fall in love with a person because of who they are. its just like falling in love with someone you have met apart from you can touch them. But if that person shows you that they are willing to wait for you for however long without any intimate contact with anyone else then that must prove something. A lot more people are falling in love online, i would have laughed if a year ago you told me i would be in love with someone who lives 12 hours away by plane. But look at me now, besotted by a man i have never met. And it will stay that way, i plan on moving there and going to school. Not moving in with him but having a proper relationship. If you want it to work you will both make it.

      Hey. I'm new bie here. I find it interesting, that I'm not the only one who experienced this. Reading all your story and thoughts, makes me realize that Falling in love with a person whom you never met is possible. At first, I was so confused about my feeling. How could I can falling for someone who is faraway from me, and I never see him before. I'm a realistic kind of girl. And honestly I didn't believe in love at the first sight. But after I met him online, it has totally changed my mind. He is so adorable, thoughtful, mature, and the best thing is , He is close to God. Really one of a kind. His personality makes me love him more and more each day. Sometimes I wonder why God has put this feeling in my heart, and it seems like He pointed me towards this boy. Everyday I knew him better, and that's just the moment that I realize he's the one that I've been looking for. We are closed to each other for 6 months. But I still can't figure it out what is happening between us. He once told me that he had feeling for me, but it is still an uncertainty. After I posted a photo of me and my friend, he acted like he was jealous and mad at me. He said I was betraying him, in fact that we're even not in a relationship. So do he expect me to consider him as my bf if he has never tell me that he loves me or miss me? That's not gonna happen. He kept his mysterious side , sometimes he cared, sometimes he didn't give a damn. I didn't know him that well, but what I really know is, I'm in love with him. That's it.

      hey guys, it's very interesting to read all of your stories. Well I will tell you mine. I've always attracted any guy I wanted. I met more than 20 persons for real after we've contacted each other on the internet. So I'm really experienced in this. I don't mean specifically dating, but my best friends,like Half of my life and more than half of the persons I know, and the persons I work with and are good friends, are persons I met them 1st on the internet. Even so, I always said to myself that falling for someone you haven't met yet is not real and serious. Cause I would always just befriend on inet and then after a month or two of talking (sometime only a week) we would meet each other for real and become real friends. The thing is... I've fallen in love with someone I haven't met yet. He's living in USA, I am in Europe. At the beginning we were just chatting and after 2 days I told him I wanna hear him so that I would know I talk to a real guy and stuff like that. So we started talking on skype (just talking, no webcaming cause he didn't have one at that time) I told him that that's not enough (quoting myself: you might be a 60 smth years old pedophile - since I am only 18 lol) so he proved how smart he is and he took a picture of himself holding a big whiteboard in his hands and there was written: hey X(my name), I am real! That totally impressed me. I've spent hours and hours and days talking to him, exchanging photos daily, it was amazing cause I would never spend so much of my time to talk to someone. I found him funny cause he said all the time: we would look good together, we would be a really nice couple and we might have really nice kids. LOL, it was funny, and so a month had passed and I found myself that the only thing I was thinking about was how to get to my computer faster or how to upgrade my phone package so that I could call him more often (the same way he was calling me). He knows everything about me, he even talked to my parents, my brother, they all know about him as well and I've showed them videos with him and photos and stuff so it's like he is a part of my family already but we haven't met yet ((( I also talked to his dad, his family knows about me and everything is really freaking serious! and I love it :) It's been already 3 months since we've been talking, communicating, even doing THINGS in real time, He has dozens of videos of mine, and I also have that so we both certainly know the way we look for real. We also had fights, I cried, I was hurt, I hurt him as well but we would always make up. Even though I haven't met him yet, he is more real to me than any other guy I dated b4(and I dated like 5-6 guys). We have our own plans and the only thing we think about, and we've been thinking about since we've confessed to each other what we feel is how to get to meet for real and be 2gether for real. The problem is with my age and the country I live in. And I really don't have enough money so that I could afford to go to US by myself and start living there, even though that's my biggest wish. He's studying at university but he also has a job, not that well payed so he's trying to find some other one as well so that he could come here to be with me. But I always tell him that I don't want him to come here cause the best for both of us would be if I would go there , cuz the country where I live in is freakin poor and I don't want him to be here. Anyways if I am not going to find a way to go to US any soon he said he's gonna come here and after that, he's gonna go back to US to apply for my marriage visa. crazy stuff really crazy, and to tell u smth I have no doubt we will be soon 2gether for real, IDK how that's gonna happen but it will and I am not afraid of ''what if we won't like each other'', cause that's impossible after sharing the amount of photos and videos (no photoshop allowed xD) we've send to each other. And another important thing, even though he bought himself a webcam and told me about it , I said that is better if we don't turn them on until we meet each other for real, and he agreed. Cause we think that it's better like this: not to ruin the magic of meeting each other for real with the webcams, so we would be very excited about the 1st time when we gonna meet each other. I love him, and he loves me, it's no doubt about it, the only problem is this pain we both feel and this frustrating feeling of not being able to be 2gether right now and how we have to wait for it, but we will. And everyday is as exciting as it was at the beginning, sometimes even more. and b4 when I was with someone for real I would get bored in just a month (maximum was 3) but I've been talking to him for more than 3 months and I still can't believe it. And it's not like I'm gonna get bored when I meet him for real, but no one has ever interested me that much so that I would still find them interesting and important after a longer time (and I've had some past experiences on internet with other guys but in just 2 weeks or a month I was bored and found someone else for real, but he canceled every other real guy here, I think only about him...)

      I have done the strangest thing. I have fallen in love with someone I never met. Call me an idiot, call me irresponsible, call me a dreamer, fine. had you asked me ten years ago if i thought this possible I would have looked at you like you had 2 heads but... I have introspected this some and came up with something i wanted to share with you having read most of your stories. Falling in love with someone you never met not only makes sense, I submit its a more lasting foundation for love everlasting. Normally, you meet someone in a club, or at a party and you have a physical attraction and then upon meeting, perhaps even dating, you learn if they have the qualities you are looking for in a life mate. I cant tell you HOW many times that failed _ I don't have the time to share all the stories but perhaps another time. In short, shes got the LOOK I like but the rest of the makeup doesn't mesh with what Im looking for. So playing a game online I met a young lady living halfway across the country and in playing we became friends. After a year, the possibility begane to arise in my mind..." why NOT her?" She is the one that i most like being with - why NOT??? We share the same goals,values, passions, except for one thing...I thought, " what does she LOOK like?" - In short, if I have found the ONE and she is NOT Charlize Theron am I an idiot for not falling in love??...of course not, she is an average American girl - pretty but not PERFECT and you know what. That's PERFECT - By 2011 - I plan to make her my wife. Its not the shell that will sustain a marriage in hard times. Its the soul. Give me a soulmate over a pretty shell anytime.

      I agree with some of you, while I disagree with some of you. It seems like a lot of us have had the similar situation. I have been in love with someone that lives 2,000 miles away from me for about 2 years. Although, I have never told that person this, making it really difficult to have some conversation, so I find it very hard to get over. It hurts a lot knowing that the person you have clicked the most with lives no where near you. I wish that person knew this and he probably never will because I guess I just do not have the guts to tell him. The situation is a little hard to explain, therefore, it makes it harder to be able to tell him. I know that it is love, because, I have never felt anything this strong in my whole entire life. I literally dream about this person, at least once a week when I am sleeping. Believe me, it's not my choice to do so. I feel almost psychotic telling all of you this but it's the only way I can get it out without any of you knowing who I am since this is pretty anonymous to me. If any of you could give me a word of advice, that would be fantastic. Thank you.

      I understand this, I always disagreed with things but never got into it. Then I met someone over the internet from a completely different country. And we both admitted that we couldn't just stay friends, really it was an attraction right away. We get along amazingly and I swear even people who has known me for years and been close to me don't know me half the way he does. He knows me sometimes better then I do. I remember for a bit he was forced into the army, at EVERY chance he had he would talk to me or send a picture of him in uniform. And when he got home, the first thing he asked was if I could talk on the phone. He sounded dead, tired and just told me to talk since he missed my voice. He still does it, has a bad day, just likes to listen to me talk. And I am the same way with him, he pretty much had me from the moment we first talked.

      Its rather scary, we are both pretty young. (but of age) This summer I am actually going to Europe (I live in the US) to see him. I don't want to spend time wondering WHAT IF. Sure I believe everything happens for a reason, but I do believe that we make mistakes out of that... I don't expect perfection, I just expect the boy I've been talking to with a few quirky things. I don't expect a flawless physical appearance, even though I have seen him on Cam hundreds of times and find him beyond beautiful.

      It wasn't a choice to end up falling for someone, it just happened. I never saw it coming, but I sure in hell did the moment I talked to him and afterwards waited for him to talk to me again...

      Its been 7 months, It will be around 10 months that I have known him when I go to see him. Though he did end up breaking his promise, and told me he loved me about a month ago. (: It was sweet and I know probably very soon to say it, we're both idiots; especially me for being a young female going to a foreign country (I will be with a friend a chunk of the time in europe so its not SO bad) But, wish me luck!

      good luck! I am also going to Europe next week actually same story as yours Bunni :) except we are very formal now and very serious about being toghether and marriage. Everyone in my family is freaking out and does not want me to go since they feel as if I am risking my life and that there are so many other guys not just him. I love him of that I am sure. I am also scared but I cannot wonder what if. We know all there is to know about each other but my family thinks he is a stranger and me going overseas is life threatening (which I can agree). I will be studying there and getting to know him just hope all goes well. Wish me luck too!

      6months ago I met this guy online on a social networking website. Am not a type to be on the online dating site, coz having that fear of meeting up with a complete weirdo or just having this feeling like am being desperate. Anyways this guy and I hit if off like a house on fire. We would talk for 6hours or even the whole day thru instant messaging, email and also skype. I truly recommend to people who consider online dating is to skype with the person they are chatting to. Me and this guy gotten so close that we would leave our skype on even when we had nothing to say to each other. It seems really weird but it was a way for us to get close to each other, for us to bond, because we have a huge distance between us (he lives in US I live in the UK) so it more felt like we were hanging out. But the more closer and comfortable we got the deeper our feelings became. And it scared the living day lights out of me, I thought I was crazy for falling for him. But I had to say something coz what scared me the most was if he one day decided to not talk or skype with me and that he had met someone else. So I told him and I discovered that I wasn't the only one. He felt the same way but was scared because he too never been this kind of a situation before. So from then on I stopped talking to other guys or going on dates. And so did he, and now we are in a relationship, even tho we haven't physically met we both know what we are feeling is real. At first I was really scared of telling my friends about him and now they all love him and can't wait for him to come and visit me. And same goes with him. The weirdest this was when we were getting to know each other it felt like we were catching up, like we have already met. I'm so excited to seeing him in person. We even planned that we would move in with each other.

      All in all love is the strangest and the most unpredictable thing in the world, you will never know when its gonna hit you n when it does it hits you hard.

I also think that when you're not able to hold that person close to you and see them and kiss them on a regular basis. It bonds you closer so that when you finally do meet.. it'll be magical. One day I'll be able to experience that magic with him if we meet

      I find myself head over heals in love with a guy who I've been talking to on-line and on skype for hours on end. He's from about long distance, huh? I don't fall in love easily, in fact I am rather jaded when it comes to men, but I fell in love so quickly with him. He is everything I've been looking for my whole life. He is smart funny, sensitive, sweet and I am so attracted to him. We spend endless hours on skype together, in fact he will stay up all night (6 hours time difference) talking to me even though he has to work the next day. We are able to talk about everything together, religion, politics, relationships, sex...everything. We say I love to each other 10 times a day, but now what? Here I have a man I am so in love with and he is over 5,400 miles away. We have talked about me going there to visit and then him coming here (much harder for him to get a visa than me). He told me he would live anywhere with me and I feel the same way about him. Sometimes I just feel like this is unrealistic, but then I feel like if we want it bad enough we can make it happen. I haven't told my family for fear they will think I am nuts, but I have told a couple of close friends. They say go for it, but I feel like they are just humoring me. Somebody please tell me I'm not crazy for wanting this so badly!

      Thanks Wendy for reminding me I have a post here, so here's a little update from my post 15 months ago. I was finally granted my visa shortly after that and flew to the U.S. in May of last year where I finally met my now wife, and we have been happily married for just over a year. I've learned that when two people love each other enough they'll have have the patience and perseverance to make anything possible.

      I'm glad to read that im not the only one who believes they can fall in love w/someone but never meeting them in person.

      Here is my story. I would love some advice.

      Started talking to a guy i met on yahoo chat 6 years ago. At the time he was stationed in Iraq and was going through a divorce. We talked several times a day for at least 3-4 months. I ended getting very attached and thought i was falling in love with him. He came home and we still talked on the phone alot. He lives a 1000 miles away in a different state. For whatever reason we never met in person. ( I regret it to this day) He started dating someone and same with me and we stopped talking. Couple years later he messaged me and we would talk for a week or 2 and then i wouldnt hear from him. I dont know how i did it but i shut all my emotions off and got on with my life. He started talking to me again in Dec2009 and we both agreed i would fly out and see him asap. Then he just stopped returning my texts and emails. Ididnt want to seem desperate so i left it alone and once again tried to stop thinking about him. He has been back overseas since Jan 2011 and once again he resumes talking to me. AT the time he left he had a girlfriend but they ended up breaking up around March. At first when he messaged me it was strictly friend talk. Nothing about meeting up or sex. Probably about a month ago we have become more personal again and talk about meeting when he comes back from overseas. At this point i dont want to go down the same road i have been for 6 years but i truely love and care about him deeply. I dont know what to do. I'm afraid when he comes home it will be the same old crap again and we will stop talking. One plus is he wants to move to a different state where some of his family is to go back to school. If he ends up moving i will only be 2 hours away. So i have no idea what i should do!! Sometimes i just want to cut all ties with him to save myself from a broken heart once again.

We started talking on the phone and have since been in constant contact through phone, skype and text. We have come to know each other from the inside and are meeting next week. I have no doubt that we have a really strong connection and it may even be love. For the past few days I have been telling him I love him after I hang up the phone. I look forward to every phone call text and message from him. It almost hurts I want to see him so badly. He lives 1000 miles away. I hope it is real. I will repost after our meeting next week!

      I think that you should go for it, but if he does start pulling the same old crap as before you should break all ties with him and just move on with you life. I know it's going to be hard to do and you will probably think about him a lot at first, but in the end I believe that it will all be worth it. You can't just sit around wasting your life away waiting for him to a make a move that he probably never will. And the more attached you get to him the harder this is going to be and its not fair for you.

      I wish you the best of luck!! :)

      I found the article and this answer today, and I started reading..because this topic is interesting to me .. I was wondering if I was blessed or others share the same experience. The way I met my husband was in this manner.. he called our house.. I answered the phone and it was the wrong number.. some how we got talking and spent about half and hour in the phone that night.. next morning..he called again and we talked some more..before I know what's going on we were in love.. and we thought we should meet in person.. I was having health problems at the time and was hard for me to leave the house, so he sen me a photo of him so that when he do come to our home I would know him.. to me the pic was not all that important .. but I needed it to see who I was talking to..kind of complete the picture.. finally he did come.. I though how I should meet him and what i should wear and finally i choose to go with a natural look..simple cloth and no make up and hair is hard to put into word how I felt when we finally got to see each make long story short..we been married for 20 years now..we have 3 lovely kids. If I can go back in time I will not change a thing

      I can't believe this topic even exists. I thought I was weird, but now seeing all those comments and experiences... it gives me hope. Thanks to you all for that!

      So, here's my story...

      I had interest in Asian cultures from a very early age. So, with no actual expectations, I signed on to a specific website dedicated for finding friends, dating, anything really. One day I searched through database of people there and this one particular guy caught my attention. He didn't have much of a descripton written, but I thought he's interesting, so I wrote to him saying hi. We started talking on the internet, and with each day, I believed we were getting closer. We've been talking for more than a year now and I always enjoy it. He makes me laugh, understands my problems even though we're from another country. He's in Asia and I'm from Europe... I'm always looking forward talking to him because he makes me happy and I believe I'm in love. I never directly told him that I love him or that I like him in this way and he didn't either. But there are moments when he says how cute I am and gives me compliments sometimes. I do to. Probably more then he does. Anyway, I'm just torn, because I would like to know how he feels and I don't want him to think I'm weird because I believe that I'm in love with him even though we've never met. I'd do anything to actually see him, but can't afford the trip there.

      @ Cookie

      I met my fiance on-line and he is from Egypt. We have been talking on-line for almost a year and I went to meet him this past September and had the best time. I plan to go back in March and meet his family, then hopefully he will move here in the US with me. That is the plan anyway. It will all depend on immigration. He would like me to move there, but I can't because of my daughter. When we met on-line it started out as just a friendship, now he turns out to be the love of my life.

      You should tell him how you feel because he could very possibly feel the same way. At least you will know. Nothing is impossible.

      Good luck :)

      Hi everyone! It is so possible! I met a guy by chance, playin a game, we started talking and had alot to talk about. We made eachother laugh :). I needed it, he needed it and we developed this strong bond where everything seemed to click so perfectly. We talked every day for a year and we fell for eachother hard, i think i never loved anyone as much. We live on different continents and both have lives so we hardly stood a chance of meeting in reality. Anyways, the whole thing became too painfull for me, knowing that we dont have any future together and knowing that we re stuck in our online world, so i decided to leave. It hurts, i still love him and i know we could have made it work if we got the chance. Not in this life i suppose. I love you my sexy stranger

      @ bi80, Well have to tell you that nothing is impossible if you both want it bad enough. My fiance lives 5,500 miles away. I have been to see him once and I had the best time with him. I am going back in March while we are going through the immigration process for him to move here. I feel the same way, I have never been so in love and I can't wait to wake up to him every morning. Good luck, I know what it's like to be so far away from the person you love the most.

      I feel terrible in all honesty. I have been in a relationship for a year and a half now, but for the past month or so the relationship has completely died, nothing we do seems to have any effect.

      A few months prior to this I got speaking to an old friend again there hadn't been any sexual past between us or anything like that, but as we got more and more in touch with each other I realised just how much this old friend means to me and now I can't get her out of my head and I know that she feels the same way.

      What do I do? Follow my heart and take a risk, or try and fix what is left?

      2008,i as asked a friend of mined to find someone who is looking for a text mate..sms messaging. At first, it was awkward, then later on we feel like connected to each other. We texted everyday...that was during college. I never doubt..i was falling in love with her...2009 our relationship has becoming more than friends..we exchange i love you messages..and stuff like that..She became my girlfriend..for the past 2 years..we havent meet each other..we just call and send some sms..i wasnt able to find another girl...i knew i honestly love her. Her parents were preventing such relationships to happen..

      2 more years..we had so many plans..i wanna meet her..but circumstances wont allow. Its getting too long..i already loss my patience..but love keeps me more stronger each day... until... last day..we end up everything...i can accept the fact, that this virtual girl,i knew from the phone, whome i been inlove with would give up our relationship without even giving both of us a chance to see each other.

      She was 23, and im 25..We are both university graduate already..been working for more than 2 years now.. I am not reach..her family was a middle class...somehow richer...i dont have fancy cars..But surely i could take care of her..

      Im so down..i almost loss my job..i cant either concentrate..i working too hard because of her..i was like a broken glass hard to fix. She my inspiration..without her..i dont know what would i be.

      She was pretty..i had her pictures..its not really about physical thing that matters..its how this person could relate to you..and how much you are connected deep inside. The joy that i could feel when i receive an sms from this woman couldnt be if she was completing my day.

      I could be ok if i loss my job, then still i could lean to her..i still have it wont be harder for me to find one..But now,i loss her..and im losing my job...i feel like im doomed!

      She was thinking of getting a job, so she could be free from her walled environment..i will support her.. I just cant imagined how she easily give up ...

      She keeps tellin me that she was the problem..and that she couldnt find a way to get over from her parents..and that she is causing the pain and frustration i feel..which i also think is isnt necessary..since i am already immune to it for over 4 years...

      Now, i wanna see her..thats just making me more aggressive to do this things which i haven't done for so long..i know, she loved me more than i do...but is it really possible that she go back again?

      She wants freedom? she wants space, time to think about..She wanted to be freed from the guilt she feel when her parents would try to scrutinized her for having a hidden relationship with me..

      We keep it secret ..only 2 or 3 persons knew about us..were just less than 200KM away..and i know that isnt far enough..when i can go driving more than that last weekend with my family.

      What should be the odds that i could see her? Im not really quite sure about this..but i wanna see her and talk in person... She called it a stop to our relationship last 2 days ago..that really hurts..apart from losing a really suck right now...

      No worries, im not a suicidal just so down atm.. lately been at the gym..i can really pull 100% of my really affected...this virtual break up has made me look invaluable.

      PLEASE HELP ME .. :(

      our names have the same starting letters..and have the same number of characters...we do have couple names as well..ei.. maria elouisa martiniz, Johan Michael Gustav..somthing like that..we do have a lot of things in common..i wish i could change her mind..i really broken hearted. ...guys//i need you help..

      @kim:( here me out. Im a woman who recently ended a relationship like yours. I understand how devastating it may be. But 4 years?! And you live close and you didnt do anything about it? Meet her, go see her, go out together or whatever. Are you sure her parents are the only reason why she has to hide you? Only because you ve met online/txt (whatever) and not in a bar? Come on. I know 4 years sounds like a tremendous amount of time to spend with someone, but you two have never really met. So dont scare her off by offering marriage, taking care of her financially... My suggestion would be to meet her first (if you can still contact her and ask her to give you a chance to see her in person). If she does, take it slowly, dont make plans for the next 100 years outloud infront of her. Give her a chance to accept you in real world. Make the transition smoothly.

      God! What would i have given to have been even on the same continent as him.

      Good luck! Dont forget to let us know the outcome. Wish u luck

      @ laci...He may be getting tired of 'just' an on-line relationship, especially if there is no hope of being together. It may not mean that he doesn't love you, but he may need human contact after so many years. He also may have met someone, you can't be sure unless you ask him. Six years is a long time without meeting for anyone to hold things together. Good luck...

      Hi everyone! definetely you can fall in love with someone on internet... I did actually!

      I met this guy approximately 4 years ago and since then we never loose contact. Despite of our different cultures we always agreed in almost everything and like almost the same things; but now we are kind of separated. We dont speak as we used to and I really miss him... becouse of our personal activities is why we didnt have the chance to actually meet in person... but i know that one day we will... well, I hope so... love has to be stronger.

      So you guys dont loose faith... If it is what God wants for you it will be the best...

      i'm currently dating a guy i have never met. the relationship's been going on for 2 years. i'm personally a realistic girl. i've never believed in online dating or things like that. i've never believeed love can happen without ever meeting face to face.

      honestly, i'm not that hopeless romantic type of girl. a lot of boys are chasing me and i've been in a relationship with a really cute guy for 2 years before.

      I really didnt know what was on my mind when i started a relationship with this guy. he just got me. everybody knows that i'm not that kind of girl who easily falls in love. i'm that girl who reject boys' love for me. i mean i'm looking for perfection in a guy. but this guy is just.. i mean he's not perfect but i just feel sooo good when talking to him. i know for sure we're made for one another. i'm positive that i'm in love head over heels with him and i know when i'm in love. i know that i dont like him because of his character or whatever. i know i love him for whatever he is. even if he doesnt turn out to be like what i've always expected him to be, i really think i would still love him. i really never felt this way before. i'm that girl who thinks falling in love over the internet and all that is bullshit but now i'm one. i really love him but i just dont think this relationship is going anywhere.. i dont even know what to say

      i posted on here like a year ago. i was talking to a guy online from another country. i'm american. i got so confused by whether it was worth meeting or not. i mean we are from completely different cultures and i started to question whether what i thought this love was could actually exist for real. but i tried to say goodbye and didnt talk to him for about 5-6 months. every day i thought of him. i tried so hard to move on but i'd remember stuff we used to talk about and seeing him on his webcam. i don't know what to do. it's been 4 years since we started talking at first. i know these feelings will never go away unless i meet him. it's just so dangerous to meet someone from across the world. can i really spend the rest of my life thinking, "did i ruin the most amazing thing that could have happened to me in my life?"

      All similar stories! It hurts like a m*therf*cker when u fall in love with someone over the internet. I'm telling you, it's possible! I fell in love with a girl about 6 years ago. We used to talk everyday for hrs. And if we coudn't talk, I'd ring her phone once, just to let her know i was thinking of her. She did the same.. Sent lots of sms, mails etc. Then i got back to 'reality', my life in my own environment. And now after years we're back in contact. Not as much as back then, but every now n then we talk and i miss her. Eventho i haven't ever met her, i miss her. She understands me, she knows me, the way i think etc. I think of her 24/7, but it hurts like hell!! I'm sure we'll meet this year, thats gonna happen. But after that... who knows? we live far away from eachother in 2 totally different worlds... We'll see! I'll keep on doing my thing and who knows what will happen!

I think my story is kind of weird...I used to think that I love this man whom I never know does exist or not.I keep on dreaming a man beside me with a blurred face,I cant see clearly his face,and I think his the one for me,but can it really happen?

      Im 21,yeah I know Im still young ,but all I ever want is to find the man I love,the only man,I wish to fall in love once and I'd love that to be my forever,but Im afraid that maybe he doesn't exist.I keep on searching online,I made friends,but I can't find him.

      Sometimes I used to think I'll just have to wait,but what if I just pass the chance of being inlove?

      My friends who were now happy in their love life,keep telling me to find someone and be happy,but I can't,I keep on looking but I can't find,or what if I found it but then I let it passed because Im afraid his not...yeah,Im kind of a hopeless romantic. I want to share this doubt in my mind and I hope someone here can understand and can share some advice for me...

      It would be great,

      I'm in a relationship with a girl that I met online. Ive been with her for almost 3months and still haven't met her because she lives in another state. We text everyday. And are on the phone constantly. The second I walk through the door from school I call her. We stay on the phone all night even while we are sleeping. And when it's 3am my time it's 6 her time so she wakes me up everyday at 3 and I talk to her till she leaves for school. We also Skype. I love her so much. I feel like I want to spend the rest of my life with her because she is perfect. We're complete opposites but so good together. Yes, we fight and we have our problems but so does every relationship. We plan to meet each other on summer break in may. I know that meeting her is going to be amazing.

      @coritso17, I met a man on the internet that lives in Egypt and I live in America, so he is half way around the world. I just got back from Egypt 2 days ago for the second time and I am more in love with him than ever! He is the most loving, caring, wonderful man I have ever met. We are getting married as soon as I can get him here. If for some reason he cannot get a visa for the US, I plan to move to Egypt. I can't imagine my life without him. Two people with different cultures can work, but there has to be understanding and patience between one another. You will always wonder "what if" if you never meet him...that's why I went to Egypt. My family and friend's thought I was nuts (well, most of them). I have no regrets, but I would have if I never went. Good luck!

      I have been reading all these stories, and i came to a conclusion.. I may be falling for him. im not sure..

      I just met him a few months ago. Infact i met him on New Year.

      i thought i was deeply in love with my ex of almost 3 years.. And since i had gotten a new android phone, i was trying to download some apps.

      funny thing was, i saw an app called Badoo, i was curious thinking it was something with pandas (bamboo) haha i know im so lame -________-

      Anywho, its turned out it had nothing to do with pandas hahaha. Badoo is a dating site.

      Back to my story.. this so called Jacob guy messaged me saying, "Happy New Year!"

      I saw the message and his picture and i said "well hes okay looking so i might as well distract myself" (by the way his picture was small so i couldnt teally see him q: )

      i ended up messaging him back wishing him a happy new year.

      he told me he was on his way for a basketball game (he's a college basketball player)

      and that he had been in the bus for 12 hours.

      We kept messaging eachother, asking questions and what not.

      The thing is, i felt so comfortable messaging him as if i knew him already. I felt at ease, i actually looked forward on messaging. Im not really a flirt, infact thats not my thing.

      I have been messaging him nonestop since January 1st, 2012.

      Of course he wouldnt flirt with me, but as the weeks passed, we became really friendly with eachother. we're really good friends, and flirt ocasionally. he messages me "goodmorning beautiful" everyday day and "good night beautiful, mauhhhh!!!" everynight. (which causes me to get butterflies in my stomach)

      i have learned so much about him, he's almost 20, 6'2, beautiful smile, amazing pesonality, a gamer, light brown hair and brown eyes, I swear he is a younger version of Chris Gorham c; he's only had ONE girlfriend in his whole life (that really touched me) and sooooo much more.

      anyways, one day we were playing around and somehow the convesation leaded us agreeing that we are getting married (this summer on June 2nd)

      I would DO anything for that to come true.

      i live in San Antonio Texas, and he lives in Willinston North Dakota. we are about 3,315 miles away yet i feel as if he were right next to me.

      yesterday (3/18/12) he confessed that I.. I was the only girl he felt comfortable with.. That he had a overwhelming want to hug me.. As i read it i couldnt help but shed a tear and smile.. A smile from ear to ear. I want to tell him how i feel but im so scared to get rejected or to stop talking/messaging him. I would miss him too much!

      As much as i try, i cant help but think he's perfect. Not just physically but from the inside. his personality in beautiful, he says he has flaws but as much as i try i cant seem to find any. we have so much in common we even think alike. And i dont know what to do. I really dont ): I would do ANYTHING for him. I feel like he's my soul mate, the love of my life. My better half. My father might be moving to Montana, and if he does i'll move with him that way i'll be a few miles away from Jacob.

      He says im beautiful inside and out, he makes me feel wanted, loved, happy. he doesnt even need to try to make me smile. Just receiving a small message brightens up my day, and when we dont talk i cant help but frown....

      I wish June 2nd will come true. theres so much more i have to say about him, but this is already TOO long. What can i do?? Is this really love?? i dont know.. but the only thing i know is that he's all i think about, and he is a VERY important to me.

      doesshe 5 years ago

      I wouldn't go as far as saying that Im in love with this person, Id say its more that "Im in like with her.."

      For the last couple years Iv been attracted to this woman who I found attractive and figured she's beautiful and so that explains it. But in the last 6 months or so its gradually gotten stronger and its to the point Im wanting to say something to her about it.

      I think she's attracted to me, I don't know-obviously that's the part I hate...But there's another dilemma. One that I won't express here, but will say Its like being a student in college who has a crush on a professor I guess, and that's as far as I'll go with that.

      Iv caught her checking me out, lol But Im always checking her out! Only not in a dirty kind of way of course. She's beautiful and everything about her Im attracted too. I love her body, her hair, face, and she has this big beautiful mouth! I can't tell you how many dreams my minds gone off on, as silly as a simple walk on the pier or just making her laugh.

      Then I realized one day that "what if I look like Im stalking her?" Or that Im over doing it-looking at her too much and what if its making her uncomfortable?? I was terrified over these thoughts because of course Im nothing like those things, I mean Im the one who's used to being sought after, Id never be that kind of person! I decided to ignore her from then on. I didn't look at her, and if I did I turned away. Every time I did that Id cringe to myself and would close my eyes shaking my head like, "what am I doing?" But Iv done this so it appeared I had no interest at all.

      Well, it isn't true. I want to know her and tell her everything! I wish I knew for sure if she was interested, obviously it would make things so much easier. But I don't know how to even go about this.

      The last few weeks Iv changed my times to later in the day where I know she's NOT there. I figured not seeing her anymore would take this crazy feelings away. "I think she deserves better then me" is what I keep telling myself. That there's someone out there that would make her much more happier then what I can do for her. After all Im at a time in my life where Im starting over, and Im sure she wants more from someone. I don't know anymore, Im confused..

      Iv kept this to myself for so long. No one knows about her and that I feel this way. Her names Helen by the way. I had to say it. No one's going to know who that is anyway.

      Anyway Im glad I found something like this and read some comments that I related to, making it not so odd as I thought. Im glad I expressed myself too because not telling anyone about this makes it even harder! Good luck to all of you in similar situations..

      @Wendy. I'm really glad I had the chance to read your comment. Sometimes falling in love with someone on the internet seems so unreal, like it's hard to believe it could exist in real life. Your comment reminded me so much of why I want to meet the guy I'm talking to. Alot of things scare me about the situation itself, but I can't live the rest of my life wondering "what if"...

      I'm so glad I found this. I met my best friend online. We've talked everyday for 4 years. We would chat for hours. We would talk in the morning until the next. It was insane. All we would do is go to sleep and then talk to each other whenever we woke up. He worked from home at the time. Ever since we met, there has been an instant connection. There's a bit of an age difference.. about 9 years. I'm 19 and he's 28. I start falling for him a year after we met, but I never said anything until I was 17, but being a good guy that he is, he didn't really make anything of it because of the age difference. but at that time I figured he didn't feel the same. He never flirted with me, he never tried anything like most guys, he showed no romantic interest. It was all just good fun with us. We would talk about everything and anything. I would go to him for anything. He told me I was the only person he talked to about things and he said I was always the first person he would go to tell things. and he called me his best friend. I called him my best friend. The connection i have with him, I don't have with any other person. I could never have it with anyone else. I know this. He's just so different from ANYONE I have ever met. I feel like I found a gem. He's perfect. He was perfect from the first day we talked until now. After 4 years I still haven't found a flaw in him. When I turned 18, I came to realize that we would never be together. I thought he had no interest in me. I had to move on in order to avoid feeling this way about him, but i still had to be his friend. I met another guy in real life, and we started a relationship pretty quick. The first week of my relationship with the new guy, my best friend online told me his true feelings for me. He told me he didn't want to say anything until I turned 18. He said it drove him crazy and that it affected his work life (at this time he had a job at an office). He said all he could think about is me. At that point, I was dumbfounded. I couldn't believe he felt that way. He was SO good at hiding his feelings. I honestly had NO idea. I was an emotional wreck after that. I had a boyfriend and I just found out the guy I was trying to get over, told me how he felt. It made me relieved and happy, but I had something good with the new guy. I wasn't sure what to do. I was so stuck. I still am. Me and the best friend stopped talking for a good 4 or 5 months because we both didn't know what to do. I wasn't sure if i should have left the new guy or what. I was just so lost. I was deep into the relationship with the new guy. about a year into it. i really do love the "new" guy, he's a great person. but i will never feel that connection i feel with my best friend. EVER. they just do not compare. Now whenever I talk to my best friend, It's different. I still am madly in love with him, but i just don't know what to do. we're just in two different worlds right now. I'm in college and he's busy with work. I know he loves me still, he told me. but it hasn't gone anywhere from there. We're the same as we've always been. Just friends. But i find it hard to talk to him everyday. I want to be "with" him. I want to be able to hear him and touch him. but i can't. and i'm not sure if i ever will. and it kills me. i'm scared he's going to meet another girl.. and won't talk to me anymore. I feel like if i lose him, I'll lose the only person that will ever mean as much to me as he did. these feelings wont go away. they still remain after 4 years. even after not talking for long periods of time.. we always end up finding each other again. i feel like its impossible to keep away from him.

      April Fool 5 years ago

      Well, what do you know, I'm not the only person on this earth who is going through this, but I think I am the biggest fool! Here I was, minding my own business, when I received a friend request on FB. Didn't think much about it, even took a few days to respond to it; but then I thought, what the heck, and added him. He was very friendly, and would sign on nearly every evening, looking for advice; he had had an amazing date with a woman, sent her flowers, presents, etc., but she wasn't in to him. I gave him advice, though I had never been through a similar situation, and we became friends. I am married, he is divorced, and we live approximately 500 miles away from each other, we clicked right from the start. Every day we would have long conversations, and gradually things began to change. I didn't want to acknowledge what I was beginning to feel; he was the first to say "I love you", and I still resisted. Even though my marriage has been going down hill for a long time, I still believe in the vows I took, and that what we were feeling was wrong. We continued to communicate through FB, and I finally gave in and admitted that I loved him too. Then he started to avoid me. At first it was 2 weeks, and when communication resumed he told me that he had to go away for him, because even though he loved me, he knew he couldn't have me. This sort of behavior has been going on for 1 year; either we will talk every day and I will be the happiest woman on the face of this earth, or he will stop all forms of communication. I need to be strong and end this. Problem is I do love him. It is not sexual, it is the sort of love, where you care more about the other person's well being and feelings than you do about your own, at least that is what I feel. He tells me he loves me, says he would go crazy if I wasn't in his life, needs me in his life. and then ignores me forever. Someone should hit me upside the head with a 2 X 4!!! I don't know how to get him out of my heart or my head... It gets to the point where I literally feel physical pain, not knowing how he is, if he is safe... I definitely need to be admitted to a Psych Ward!

      i was friends with this guy for two years off the internet we talked on and off because he had a girlfriend and was 19 at the time. i was just happy to have him as a friend. we went a few months last year not talking due to falling out of touch, life circumstances. he developed feelings for me and i was in a relationship. this winter, we finally were both single and available. i'm 28 and he's 21. it's a very unlikely relationship, but over the course of the last few months, we decided to date and commit to each other. he has really been a source of strength for me and we have been through a lot of events already in which were realistic (family tragedy, sickness, and frustration of being apart). he is coming here in may, and there is a bond that i feel was there before we decided to give this a go. we are both very realistic about our relationship, and open about how we both feel. he has been nothing but honest with me, and i have been that for him. most of all he makes me happy and we both have our own separate lives, however, we realized love inherently is a choice. something you have to work on. i'm soooo excited and scared to see him, but we both have good heads on our shoulders and now we can enjoy finally being in the presence of one another and fall in love all over again :)

      Me. 5 years ago

      I started talking to this guy over twitter about 5 months ago. It was weird how we started talking, it just happened, something pushed us together...

      Over the past months we have become extremely close. I fell for him. It's so hard. I don't even know what he looks like. We would talk for HOURS, about everything, we are like the same person...but what's happened is this-we know we are close friends...he has to leave twitter. It's apparently too much of a distraction too him at this important time in his life...and I told him how I felt after he'd told everyone he was leaving....and he feels the same way. I feel awful. Because now he's gone...he had to leave. It's so painful. I don't know what to do. I'm so upset...

      I have never met him. But I'm in love with him. I feel like a part of me is gone... :'(

      Advise? 5 years ago

      Okay I'm gonna make this short.

      1) Lied to a guy about my age (said I was 17 when I'm 14.)

      2) We talked for months about stuff and we kinda started to like each other

      3) He wanted to meet up and I told him I couldn't. After he kept asking me about it I told him I couldn't cuz I lied about my age. After that he just said he didn't want to talk to me anymore. Should I feel like crap cuz I lied to him, try to put it behind me, or try to talk to him?

      (Btw he is 35...but he never had a problem with being with a 17 year-old. I know it wasn't right to do that to someone but should I still be regretting it for over a year? totally open to your opinions and will not take any of them the wrong way. Thank you!

      I need a word of advice - or any that differs from "loser". I think I'm exact match of the article. I fell in love with a nice girl (at least a girl with nice mind) but problem is - there thousands of kilometers between us. It isn't all problems, and, by the way, not main.Main problem is there's no chance to see her in real life. Perhaps, I'm so "lousy loser" enough to get satisfied by Internet-chattings. But at the moment - there's been no chattings. I just don't know how I should start - and should at all? It seems I won't suit her - one and only woman that makes me think she's better than me. (My opinion is nothing - but when I think so it is the part when I can consider fellings as love.) Worst of all - it is love of only one side. What the hell should I do - if should at all? She's simply the best. Everyone who thinks they can help - please write on my e-mail: sadn3rd@gmail[dot]com. For gods sake.

      I would like to tell my stories and I would like to know what you think about it..

      I met this guy online and we started talking.. it was a webcam chat so I got to see his face... He is tall, handsome and hilarious..

      He showed me who he really was and we started a friendship.. he's a player with women.. he only wants them for sex and nothing more.. but he told me it was because he has been hurt before.. and he always tells them the truth about no commitment because he doesn't want to break someone's heart.. I South America and he's from Italy.. but we found a way to chat everyday on skype and sometimes he stays until 5 am just to talk with me.. he's always telling me that I'm very cute.. and that it is very hard for him to trust women... we were just friends .. One day he was drunk and he told me he needed to talk to me.. it was like 5:30 am in Rome.. he told me there was this girl he liked a lot and when he told her how he felt she rejected him so I stayed the whole night with him on skype, making him smile and he cried.. he told me that he hated the idea of me being so far from him because if i was there he would be my boyfriend.. but that was something impossible for us (this showed me he's realistic about our situation and that he doesn't plan of breaking my heart).. so we keep talking.. and talking and we text on the phone also.. I think i may be falling for him and he treats me so good.. he calls me hun and babe but he knows this is something that cant happen.. Once I asked him that what were we.. and he said I was someone really special in his life that he loves to talk to.. and so is him to me.. I think I love him..

      I think its possible to fall in love with someone even if you've never met them. I fell in love with the love of my life in this manner and I hope and pray it will last forever. Even though it is hard and when you first meet there might be things that you find annoying or irritating in the person, if you have a relationship with someone there will always be those little things, the great thing with love is that you have to learn to love them, so in the end it's a choice. Love is always a choice not an emotion. I hope everyone's story ends like mine in happiness.

      Well, here is my story about falling in love with someone I have never met. It's a bit different than the typical falling in love with someone on the internet. Please don't pass any judgements with the info I give you about myself and the man I will be meeting next month, we both made terrible mistakes in life, and we were caught. Simple as that! Nothing violent, no sex crime. Last year I was incarcerated for stealing something while heavily intoxicated with alcohol and xanax. I was taken to a county jail that was not in the county of the crime, only because that county jail didn't house women at the time. I have never been in trouble with the law, never even a speeding ticket. Again one mistake I made that I did my time for! I was housed at this jail for 3 months, up until one night, one year ago today actually us "other" county girls were told to pack it up because they finally opened the new jail for women. Now, I had seen many women who had what was called jailhouse penpals. It was a word of mouth type thing. I thought it was ridiculous and was very judgmental about it. Even in jail I couldn't understand why girls wanted to write the guys in jail too. Anyways.. long story short. I moved this new jail, and yes I became a hypocrite. My family and friends who did write me didn't know I had moved locations. Suddenly I decided to try out a pen pal. I had a month left on my sentence and figure it would make the time go by faster. So I asked a girl who was in my block to ask her pen-pal to find someone to write me. (this was how it was done) So, she wrote a letter to him, give him my name. That was it. About a week later I get a letter. From a man who was also there. I was reading this letter and wasn't impressed. From the info he shared I thought he was like 55-60 years old. Told me was retired after 23 years of working...a few kids, no wedding ring. I reluctantly responded. Oh I was 26 at the time. Get another letter from him, again still not impressed. Well, the only way us girls and guys can ever see each other in that jail is in the visiting room, I had family member come see me, and half way through the visit, I looked across the room and was able to recognize the man I have been writing based on the info he told me about his kids. I didn't look at him until the very end of the visit. Then I suddenly I felt strangely attracted to him, he was older than me but not what I had assumed. I was intrigued. I got info on him from the deputy's, who loved him. So! That time spent in the same room seem to change my mind. We continued our correspondence until I was released in Nov. I gave him my address as he was headed to prison(I swear for just dwi) for a short sentence. When I got home after a month of doing nothing but writing each other, I couldn't stop thinking about him. I got his info on the inmate website when he was moved to prison 3 days after I left. Well, I'll cut out the middle stuff. Today is Oct 3, Oct 6th is when he wrote me that first letter. Call me crazy, naive... whatever. I don't care. We have been writing for just about a year, and started the phone calls last december. In the beginning our only intentions were to have a penpal in jail. Well that turned into a friendship as we discovered we had more in common than anticipated. We never really talked about meeting. He would always say "No strings" which later turned into "no expectations". That is how we built was we did. Never any pressure, or pushing. Never expecting this to turn into something. We were allowed to hope, and wonder. But we just allowed fate to work its magic. We never intended on falling in love. We both admit to that. This all happened to unexpectedly, so not how it was supposed to be! We joke about it now, we just wanted to have someone to talk to in jail while we did our time. Oh did I mention he is 17 years older than me? I have never meet him, but I have a box of letters here almost 60 of them. He is a man very in touch with his emotions and its amazing. Yes, I do love this man. A man I have never met. He will only be a half hour drive away when released, and him and I are counting down the days. Is there a possibility of him getting out and never calling me? Absolutely. Remember what I said above... no expectations, besides if he does fall of the face of the earth, then clearly I fell in love with a man that didn't exist, and I will get over it. I fell in love with this man who I only know by letters and phones calls. I cannot go visit him in prison as I am on probation and that facility does not allow it. The anticipation is growing as the day gets closer. I have never connected with someone SO much. Jail did help me with getting my life back on the right path. This man has been my friend, my confidant, my literary lover, my inspiration, my support, my motivation, I could go on and on. Even in prison he has done more for me psychologically than any other man has ever done for me in my entire life. If he is a different man in person, I will be thankful for what he did do for me the time we shared together. Yes there are men in prison who seek out penpals all the time, to tell them everything they want to hear in exchange for them putting money in their account, in other words to use them. This man have never asked for a single thing from me, I've offered small items to at least send him that he didn't have and he refused, said he would refuse the package if I sent it. I'm not sure what else I could really say about this. It is the most unusual, unorthodox relationship. This isn't how I pictured falling in love in my head. The most important thing is what we do for each other, we provide unconditional love and support. Something that we both never seemed to receive for the majority of our lives. We talk about everything and anything. If I hadn't gone to jail myself and learned that it is mostly full of good people who just got caught making mistakes like everyone else. If I hadn't experience jail myself, I would read this and probably think "this girl is out of her mind." Maybe I am? I'm leaving it up to fate to decide, I figure fate brought us this far, allowed us to blossom into what we are now, completely crazy about each other. Why would fate take us this far. Meeting won't be an issue. I told him today actually as long as he is the same man that I fell love with, then there is nothing to even worry about once we meet. Physical attraction isn't even a blip on the radar. 17 year older yes, I've seen a few pictures, you'd never know.... but that's what I love about him, being older. I feel like I am more on his level. The way I fell in love happened completely opposite of how most people go about it. I had nothing but a 3 seconds glance of his appearance the one time. He didn't get a picture of me until I was able to mail him some. Everyone I know is interested in getting to know someone solely based on physical appearance at first, you wouldn't go up to someone you didn't find physically attractive and get to know them would you? We got to know each other without that factor, and I fell in love him before I even saw a picture. Guess what? The love I have for him already makes him very attractive to me. Again 46 days...I'd say wish me luck, but I'm not worried. I believe this will all work out! I'm willing to risk it. Great risk is always involved when it come to matters of the heart. Love is always a risk. What happens after we meet, again no expectations. Leaving it up to fate, if we walk away great friends, that's awesome, if we walk away, hand in hand soul mates, that's great too. If he doesn't call me up upon his release, then he did me a favor by not even wasting time meeting him, and that is great too! :)

      I'm not in love but like the rest of the stories on here I am very much in like with someone. We only live 300 miles apart and the inevitable is coming. Our first meeting, and it is horrifying! I don’t think I am very attractive and I am afraid nor will he. We have seen pictures of one another…but mine are with makeup that definitely hides my flaws. When we first starting talking through Face Book I thought: This guy is cute, smart and interesting…so I continued to talk with him (by the way he is a friend of my cousin). He asked me my age and I lied by three years?...not sure why, saw no harm in it at the time but now I know it is a major problem and I will have to come clean ( I am 7 years older than him truthfully speaking). One day I just stopped talking to him, for no reason really, just stopped. About a month ago he posted some pictures from a fishing trip and I noticed him again. I commented on his photo and we have been texting and calling one another ever since. The problem…I am very critical about my looks. I am 48 and I feel like I have let certain things about my looks go…I work out (still I have some loose skin…not a lot but it’s there and it bothers me) so my body looks much better in clothes in my opinion. Also I have very thin eyebrows and I my teeth are clean but need work…like I said I don’t think I am very attractive and find this guy is way better looking than me. My love life is nonexistent….I have guys hit on me all the time…for sex never a date. Why is that?...I feel it is because I’m not pretty enough to take out. So I guess I look good enough for sex but that is it. I know this outcome…I will chicken out and never make the road trip to meet this great guy in fear of rejection.

We live in different countries and we both long to be with each other soon. My friends and family don't know that I'm in a relationship though, I know they're just gonna tell me that it is useless because how can I love the guy when I haven't even met him in person. But I really feel it in my heart that I fell for the guy and I can't seem to find the courage to end our relationship for that reason only. I really hope that we'll meet soon. I know he'll be quite different from my thinking but still I'll be so happy if I could meet him face to face. :")

      i am in the same situation, too. last year, i fell in love with a guyonline,who is much older than me. He is in vancouver , i am in china. he was working in china, but we were in different regions. At first we chat at random but gradually both of us find we fall in love with each other despite the gap of age. He said he was eager to meet me and hear my voice. So as it turned out, he came to see me ,and both of us were happy and we planned to get married in Canada two months later. but something unpleasant happened, one day he told me he was ill and diagnosed with tumor in his head, so he had to return to canada to have operation. so he set off earliy back home to Canada. After his departure, i wrote to him many times. it was his daughter who replied. she said her father can't read, and he kept asking me when i will arrived.Two month later, i arrived in canada , and hoped to meet him. It' was the once chance i can go canada for my life. After i arrived, i wrote to him but nobody replied, i didn't hear from him or his daughter either. i know he is not on good terms with his daughter and son. This made me very upset and confused , i have no idea if i should keep on writing, or is is impolite to visit a sick person unless invited, so i didn't write just waiting, but in vain. i was heartbroken back to china. after coming back i wrote to him. This time it was his son who replied saying his father was very sad without meeting me but he made a choice he thought good for me . now i am very sad because i didn't insist on meeting him ,after all maybe we will never meet each other. now i have the following questions.

      1. is it my fault ?

      2. should i constantly write toher daughter, and insisting on meeting him

      3. did i break his heart ?

      The fact is that i miss him , write to him but there is no reply. please help me

      I'm glad I found this. I'm a psychology major and I study philosophy, religion etc. I've been looking for answers about something similar to this. I've fallen in love with a few different men and I know I always have very strong feelings each time. I feel like Van Gogh only I'm not as good of a painter. But I met someone like fucking five years ago. At first I just thought he was attractive and tried to tell myself he was probably married with kids because he was older than me. I was 20 at the time and he was 30 I think. But I had a job interview, he interviewed me, how inappropriate right? And I'm bad at making eye contact because I'm a recluse and shy I guess. But I remembered during the interview that I should make eye contact and immediately was overwhelmed by whatever it is in someone's eyes that you can see. It was that ecstasy feeling and I could like feel this fire burning in my chest. He left that job and I quit like a year later but I sent him an online message and told him that I had feelings for him. He just said nice things, polite things that kind of let me down easy. I know I'm attractive but I'm a total dork weirdo that's extremely awkward so I wonder if he just thought I was just too strange or too young? I'm young looking. Or something with a business code that says he can't date a former employee. Maybe he had a girlfriend? I don't know but the feeling of passionate, uncontrollable, unexplainable adoration, more than that consumed me. I've been depressed ever since I haven't been able to see him anymore. I've thought of suicide because of it at times. I feel like an idiot. I'm with someone else now, with the same name as him and I still long to see him and even believe I can hear him talking to me in my head. I'm probably just depressed or have a personality disorder. You can make fun of this. It's crazy. Good thing I'm studying about it.

      We av been in this fr three yrs nw nd im really addicted to dix guy.

      We hav made lots of promises including aa to when it will come on,only God knwz.

      There's too much pressure on me by ma family to get i lov dix guy soo much dat i even think itz impossible nd a crime to marry anyone but as a result i also decided to travel abroad to reduce pressure on me.

      Bt recently hes nt being the lovin nd carin guy he used to be again.

      I knw fr a fact that hes datin another girl who is much younger than both of us..nd itz really killin me

      I cry like a missing baba in my room every single day even as i type dix comment.

      I really,dearly nd tragically lov dix guy nd he is very much aware of it..smetymz i feel like giving up bt i cnt liv him fr her cox he hs become a part of me.

      We av never met tho bt most members of my family are aware of oyr relationship..most of them ask me to liv him nd move on wit my life..nd liv in the real world bt i cnt..cox hes all i need now to complete my world.

      I jst hope nd pray that he marry folkz if u say a prayer say one fr me nd if it gonna advocate nd empower ladies in similar situations like ours.

      Dilemma 2 years ago

      I wish this on no one. I've gone from just being curious, to interested, to being attracted, to being infatuated, to having my emotions go from wanting to cut all contact to wanting to never let go of my "relationship" with someone whom I have never met in person. I've only talked with her on the phone and by exchanging texts. The good news is the same as the bad news. We live thousands of miles apart. The really sad thing is that I'm still physically with someone else and cannot end the relationship because I'm legally bound to this person. So I understand and empathize with those who are in similar situations. I didn't plan this and know that only strong determination and God can help me get out of this dilemma.

      I think that in some ways TRUE LOVE is REAL.and in others I beg to differ.i mean ppl come on think back to your first boyfriend/girlfriend.maybe not the first maybe the second maybe the third or maybe you haven't experienced it yet.but im telling you when you do you will know believe me you will know.i meet a guy who was 69 yrs old and I instantly fell in love with him but obviously I feel in love with who he was not his looks [he's 69 ppl think about it] I knew I loved him but I wasn't sure how he felt about me soooooo I let it go and now iim starting to get tears so im gonna stop writing and thinking about it now.

      we understand each other

      we talk all the time

      we know how each other feels even without stating it(its feels so magical)

      we have had so much fun

      we are learning each others culture and language

      we care for each other like we have met before

      we argue and be happier after that

      we dream of each other

      we know how to make the one other glad

      we also know how to annoy each other

      we chat like we are friends since birth

      but all that is left now are the memories

      most specially the words "we will have two kids. one like you and one like me" it filled me with joy hearing those future plans from a man

      we have hurt each other. makes us both feel pain

      we wanted to talk personally.

      but we know it will take long or what i think now is 'never'

      and the thought of questioning, is it all true.

      is it really what he feel for me

      i started to doubt. i started to cry

      it gives me so much pain but who am i to run after him

      if all he would say is things changed

      maybe i really hurt him but i am feeling tired of trying

      but on the back of my mind, we will know when the time we will meet comes.

      if that will still happen........
