Can you love someone you've never met before?
You know everything about this person, youve seem pictures and skyped them, but you havent met each other in person.
Yes it is possible to form an emotional bond with someone you have never met in person. In fact long ago people were known to fall in love with "pen pals" or through "love letters".
The world was a lot less cynical back then and everyone assumed the person they were dealing with was being honest about themselves and their intentions. In this day and age we are bombarded with nightmare stories about people who got scammed, ripped off, or hurt emotionally/physically by people they met online.
However I tend to remind people that it's not where or how you meet but (who) you meet that counts! The Internet/online dating or whatever is just a "tool" for meeting other people. To blame your bad dating experiences on the Internet would the equivalent of having an obese person blame their weight gain on a fork!
A fork can be used to eat a garden salad or a huge slice of double fudge chocolate cake. The tool (fork/Internet) doesn't make decisions.
Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
One may become infatuated online, Skype, over the phone or mail---but to really love someone--- I feel you need to know them first.
Knowing is being around the person, being aware of their likes and dislikes, personality, temperament, faith or not, stability and how this person treats you and others in person.
Love is a (feeling) or (emotion). It may not be wise to open your heart to someone you have yet to meet but I don't think just because you have not been around them means your (feelings) aren't "real". People have reportedly fallen "in love" online!
Yes you must get to know someone. It is difficult to fall inlove with someone you have never met.
