Do you think online relationship are good? how have your experiences been online?
I am not asking just about romantic involvement this is about friendships too...
I have had good luck. I married the guy I met in a chat room 12 years ago. Working out just fine so far. You have to use your own discretion.
i met my wife online sort of. it's a long story but the end result is that we both seem to believe we are perfect for each other. she's everything i want and need so i guess it can happen online.
Online relationship is perfect. I have made friends online and we are having a cordial relationship with each other.
I'm . . . . . sadly rather in love with one woman who I only know online, she's my closest friend, and gets to hear all of those things that I don't tell people that I know in the "real world." She lives well over a thousand miles from me. If it weren't for her. . . . I'd have spent a lot more time doing things that I ought not be doing.
Now, the question is, when and if the time comes when It's convenient to go meet her, will that ruin it? I don't know.
I must indeed say that I am one of the lucky ones, I met this wonderful man on a dating site, and it been wonderful for the past 3 years now
and so far so good, I also introduce him to my family, and they love him a lot, however, some online relationship can turned out perfect.(everyone on line is not out to get you, in a bad way.)however, be very careful with whom you react with, there are some good stories, and also some bad ones. so my experiences with online relationship is wonderful in both finding love, and making some wonderful friends.
Worked out fine for me. Though my relationship was and started as friendship (I met my husband in a panpal site and we wrote for a while before we found out we wanted to be more than friends) since none of us was looking for romance.
A romantic relationship PURELY online won't work, but if you meet someone online and them meet up with them in real life it can be great! I met some great people online, and myself and my current are getting on great! We met online and are going strong.
I also have a friend online, who i've never met and we are great friends!
To sum it up, purely online friendships can work, but not purely online romantic relationships.
yes,online relationship are good but to some extent not for love relation i gues ...i had many friends from net and they were nice with me...i spent lots of time with them....we shared lots os thing together....and i must say that i'm the most luckiest girl
Interesting reading the answers here. Obviously it works for some people.
I get quite a few questions from people... I have 7 YouTube channels.
I get hate mail too. I post videos and write about controversial things. Most of the hate mail is from the devout Christians. Bless their hearts... so devoted to their beliefs.
I'm old and not looking for a relationship. It's all I can do to get through the physical pain most days. I have very severe arthritis which started a few years ago.
Keeping busy helps.
+/- really.... I think its ok, but often people create a virtual reality... what they want to be, rather than who they really are... and though some become real relationships, others are stunted because of people who feel better hiding their flaws, and pretending to be something the are not, their poop doesn't stink, online, but in reality, they are just like everyone else.... and often times you are befriending a total liar, who is on purpose using fake photos etc.... (web cam is good to help w/ that)
there are still stalkers and rapists constantly searching for easy prey...
there is also the risk of everything you do being recorded and used against you, you wouldn't believe the stories i have heard, of guys showing videos of girls naked, and even real girlfriends, they record w/ their cells during sex, and show the world... no privacy literally and black male is easy....
I say do so at your own risk, and be careful, emotions are fickle, and temporary, and can get you into real trouble...
Online relationship works. Although it has not happened to me yet, you know the "and they live happily ever after," I have met a couple of wonderful guys but they were just not the ones I'm looking for. As some of the answers here say, online relationships had worked for them. I also know a few people who had met their spouses or partners online and they are very happy. I belong to a dating/friendship site, where we can be friends with people around the world. I have made so many wonderful friends there, men and women. And we share our experiences and learn from each other. The first time I ever met a guy for coffee, I had received so many advice on how to meet someone online for the first time like the first thing to do is exchange ID so you know the person you are meeting is the person you know online. The other is meeting in a very public place, like just meeting for coffee. It works for me. I don't meet a guy in person unless we've been friends in our site for a while. I have met wonderful guys, about 5 in two years. I went on a second date twice. First impression is very important for me.. if there is no chemistry, I don't give it another chance. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm happy being by myself so I'm not desperate. I had two relationships but they were not meant to be. It's true there are a lot of pretenders and liars out there, so one has to be careful. But there are also wonderful people out there.. so for those who haven't tried online dating.. go for it.. just be very very careful. It's a jungle out there. I hope this helps a little.
Have a nice day,
I think it's risky! There may be times when it works out...but how can you really get to know someone who you cannot verify anything they are telling you! You have no idea if they look like what they are telling you!
I'm sure it works out from time to time... but I think it's risky! There are far too many weirdos out there who are good at playing the good guy or girl! They pretend to be something they aren't and some are serial killers!
I would be very weary of people online! I wouldn't take everything they say as gospel truth! I would look at everything with skepticism until it could be proved otherwise just to be on the safe side!
no, alot of times the person doesnt have the same personality as they seem to come off online as. and sometimes people arnt who they say they are, or even you could know someone by fase but someone hacked into there online case, so no that is a very bad idea!
This isn't exactly the same, but kind of. My husband was deployed for a year, and it that basically was an "online relationship". All we had to communicate was IM. One of my very closest friends I met online when I was around 15. Our lives are busy (and very different) but we try to communicate at least once a month. I think communicating online creates greater bonds in relationships. You really do get to know people better then face to face. All you have is words.
hahha lol i had one of these when i was 16...i thought it was so real..but it probably wont last unless you actually meet them. or maybe webcam is enough for you

If you are single or were and used an online dating site and you found someone special in your lifeI have some single family members and friends and have been wondering if anyone has had success in finding that someone...

Have you ever been "catfished".....Catfished is a loose term for the situation in which you meet someone online and they turn out to be in reality unlike what they claimed to be.
