Falling In Love On-line
Giving your heart in Cyberland
Can one fall in love on line and can it ever truly be as real as love off-line. This has been a question for many since the internet appear on our little home PC's. Thank you, Bill Gates, for that. Fallimg in love on-line is not so far away from the "pen-pal" world that my generation grew up with. Especially during War time, many young loves blossomed from simple kind words sent to a soldier far away. Soldiers far away from their home land looked for and even depended on those letters to take them through another day, just one more night of bombs and gun fire and the sounds of thier commrads dieing. This is true no matter what war or what country was fighting.
Falling in love, with only a possible chance of ever meeting, was a way of life. Then along came a spider... the internet web, and the pen-pal era was simply taken to a new level. No longer did we have to wait weeks to hear back from the one we wanted to meet. Suddenly, the world that was so very far away was right in our living room. It wasnt going to take 20 letters and 52 weeks to fall in love. Sweet words of passion and desire could be sen in less than an instant. Our hearts could be captured in a blink of an eye and the willingness of lovers flying or driving to meet became common.
Some were simply one time meetings, some for friendship but many for "More." There were kind and sweet people. The "Oops, did I say I looked like Brad Pitt? I meant ..." bad people as well as good people surfed the net in search of love, lust and friendship. Predetors that looked for their prey became evident and some shrunk away from the net because of hurt and pain and broken hearts that came with the meeting and or falling in love. And the question remained... is the love found here on the internet as real as love found off line??? And the answer, without a doubt, is YES!!!! Love found on the net is as powerful as any love found. It is invigorating and strong and more real than some think it may become. The love leaves us wanting to meet and causes people to sometimes not think as clearly as they should. The pain of a heart break on line is powerful enough to cause people to feel it deeply and to make them go as far as to shut their internet off ... forever. If the pain causes our hearts to be torn into shreds and causes us to cry for days, then the love we felt before the break was and IS as real as the pain.
Love is love, no matter where it begins. The heart follows a path that takes us to new places. The excitement of Falling in love, of being in love, is powerful and it can be the most beautiful feeling in this world. I know this feeling and I have shared sweet words and passionate moments on line and Yes, I have fallen in love right here, on line. I have met and touched some of the most beautiful ladies in this world and have felt love that is real and deep. And yes, I have known and I have caused the pain that I spoke of. I have been both on the receiving end and the giving end of sad love and heart break.
If there were a downside to falling in love on-line, and there IS, it is the fact that we touch so many lives. Sugar coated words are easily transfered from screen to screen. Love is everywhere and lust is easily found. The idea of being true to one is sometimes lost on-line because it is too easy to be several "places" at one time. IF you do find true love here and YES it is here, then take that leap. But remember, until you are side by side, you only know what you see on your screen. My heart Loves and knows of this Internet love... It is a beautiful. dangerous, exciting, heart wrenching adventure... Take a ride...............
