    Why is it that everytime you tell family members or friends that you met someone online the first thing they say is "oh boy!"? Yes it's true that some bad things have happened to people online but they are really no different thing things that have happened to people in dating places. The fact of the matter is to say that there are only weirdos, perverts and murderers online in unfair unless we include ourselves. I believe you have to be careful where ever you date or meet someone even in church. Annd yes I believe love can be found anywhere people can be found......even online.

    You can find love anywhere, even online. Yes, you certainly have to be careful but no more so than you should be anywhere else. I've had several friends who made a connection and things worked great. And I've seen it go the opposite way.
    The danger is that its easy to be someone your not, when your online. It can be much harder to fake somethings in person than over a network. But using a little caution and common sense, you can find love.

    I guarantee you can find love on line, but as for how long it will last - your guess is as good as mine.

    Good luck.

    Who knows.....can you find love period?  I dont believe there is a set place to find love.  It's a matter of meeting someone special and making something grand of the relationship that you form with them!  You can meet weidos and pervs everywhere.  The first perv I was exposed to was my boss (Micheal Cetera) I was 16 working for (DEP) on worth street.  I wasn't looking for a date neither was I even thinking about having or engadging in sex.  Pervs and pedophiles operate outside of cyberspace as well.  Even though you are speaking about dating on line, these characters interact as well as sit in very high places.  So you meet someone on or offline and they are a pyscho.....Absoultely nothing outside of nature is written in stone or follows a precise format.

    I'd say yes, definitely. Personally i think you can get to know someone much better online, because there's so many things in real  life dating that can stop you from having a real, solid conversation, whereas online, all you can do is talk. In a way, I think its much easier to be honest over chat as well. No pressure of 'what will he think if i say this...' Plus you're free from all the pressures of 'does he expect me to sleep with him now..'

    I believe your chances of finding love are thousands time increased with the Internet access.
    Now the whole world is just some clicks away, therefore your chances of finding love are brighter than before but they say....

    I don't believe it at all. It's easy to tell anyone whatever you want; especially if you're trying to impress them, after all you're behind a monitor and the person isn't looking at you, but that may not be the truth. If you're entertaining that or are involved in that be careful you're not one more statistic that someone ripped off or dropped like a bad habit.

    I've heard people put a picture of themselves when they were younger or worse that's not even them.

    Both.  But there are instances of developing real love online.   You can try.  But be cautious before any involvement

    I know two couples who are married right now thanks to match . com, but dating online can be more deceiving.

    My answer  is yes. My husband and I found each other online but we were not lovers before we met in person by which he traveled the world for the first time, from the U.S. to the Philippines. We were merely friends as in conversation level. I consider him one of God's special gift to me.
