Digital Love: How Can You Make It Work?

Updated on April 12, 2018

Could you really fall in love with someone you met online? If yes, could it really work or it’s just going to end in a very short span of time? Many people don’t believe that online relationships doesn’t work, including me. But after I experienced being in an online romance, I realized that it really could work if both and your partner want it to work.

If you are currently in an online romance and you want to make things work, here are some tips that might work for you.

  1. Communication. For me, I think this is the most important thing that you and your online partner should have. Since it is an online relationship, you won't be able to be together and you won't be able to do what normal couples do. So the best thing to do is to communicate with each other as much as possible.
  2. Give time for each other. No day should pass without communicating with your partner. Even if it's just a few hours a day, it would help to keep the fire in your relationship burning. You see, the reason why most relationships fail is because they sometimes forget to give time for their partners.
  3. Trust. Trust is also an important thing in an online romance. Like I mentioned, you and your partner won't be around each other most of the time so it's important to have trust in each other to avoid arguments. Lack of trust leads to arguments which then ends in breakup.
  4. Talk about future together. It is also necessary to discuss where your relationship is going. You have to know whether you should take it to the next level or just gonna stay where you are. Talk about the plans in future like living together, getting married, having babies etc.

These are just some of the tips that could help in making online relationship work. Of course, it would still need the cooperation of each other. Always remember, online relationship is just like normal relationships, what makes it different is that it is harder than normal ones.

Have you ever been in an Online Relationship?

      "Could you really fall in love with someone you met online? If yes, could it really work or it’s just going to end in a very short span of time?"

      First of all it's important to define what one means by "work".

      An online relationship is just another type of "long distance relationship". Long before there was an Internet people had been known to fall in love via "Pen Pal" letters.

      Long distance relationships were meant to be temporary.

      The goal is to (be with) the person you love.

      If there's "no light at the end of the tunnel" whereby the couple will be together in a permanent sense they're likely to drift apart.

      It's the counting down of the months, weeks, and days until one is finally done with the inconvenience of being in a long distance relationship that keeps it strong!

      The only reason for being in a LDR is because you believe she/he is "the one". If you're just dating someone for the fun of it you might as well do that locally. One man's opinion! :)

      In my experience, you really don't know a person until you meet them face to face and spend time with them, in person. Until then, you are just penpals, and that's ok, if that's all you want. On occasion, these kinds of relationships do continue to work, even after the two people meet. But more than not, as soon as you meet, it's all over because what you're seeing and talking to, isn't what you expected. You can't really know someone by reading the words they type on a chat....
