Who believes in it?
And do you think there are limitations and boundaries for it?
Or is it the same as real life love?

Anyone experienced it before? or are now? inlove
No need to list names of course bag

CaPtaInCLaUdiA
hmm...

CaPtaInCLaUdiA

§pearhead

burlyman
kid, I DIG!

GIIIIIANT
thank you very much shifty

YOU DIG?

§pearhead
thumb down no i dont.

yerssot
online love is perfectly possible
for the simple reason that you first talk a long time and get to know eachother well before thinking of sending pics.
it goes about character and not looks and therefor it can hold longer than RL ones.

Online Love..... I DIG! stick out tongue

burlyman
GIIIIIANT have a bucket and spade, cause you're diggin it wink

GIIIIIANT
Happy Dance YOU DIG?

silver_tears
idiotic really roll eyes (sarcastic)
and that's true, but you may really like them for them yerss, but if you aren't attracted to them physically then that's not really love, that's more friendship in my eyes.

I think love is both attractions, emotional and physical.

shaber
Yes I haveinlove donatello smilie_tux taz

GIIIIIANT
Happy Dance you GO BOY! YOU DIG?

leatherface12
Yeah I belive in online love because its kind of like real love except you dont get to see each other. And the you dig thing is getting really annoying.

burlyman
i'm not sure no expression

silver_tears
you people are annoying stick out tongue
it's an honest question stick out tongue

AliasNeo15
i think u need to get to know them more than u would know someone in real life. It would take quite a long timesad

§pearhead
eek! PENGUINN!!!!!!!!!!!!!


embarrasment sorry.

GIIIIIANT
it means thats cool kid!

thank you very much YOU DIG?

yerssot
but a relation that has a great emotional band before the physical gets involved has a higher chance of working out (given that the two persons live near eachother obviously)
if you know eachother emotionaly well, you know if things can work out or not

shaber
You're not apart, you're just not together.

nopity bawling

leatherface12
Yo giant if you didnt say you dig every post then you might get some respect from a few members.

dave123
I think meeting someone online can be the basis of falling in love with them yes

silver_tears
I understand and agree with that yes
But I think you can truly be in love once you saw the person and looked at them one on one, like if you have a webcam and talk and such, then you know all the little things they do, like girls if they twirl their hair when nervous or do whatever.

But it is more important emotionally yes

eleveninches
It's really dangeous, you're way too likely to end up meeting a 60 yr old pervert, pedophile or sadist

§pearhead
laughing out loud there is now a biiiiiiiig giiiiiiiiant here...laughing

silver_tears
not if you went on cam with them confused

dave123
shifty silence, eleven!

AliasNeo15
yes

yerssot
than I guess I'm the only one who thinks physicly is barely important

silver_tears
I think it's of course less important than emotionally, but even if you know everything about the person, and love them emotionally, if you aren't attracted to them then I don't think that's love, unless you can over look their appearance, because you love their other side so much yes

AliasNeo15
ST, do u have an online love, becus something that would help someone believe would be to hav a so-called "online love"thumb up

yerssot
if not, it's not love to me

silver_tears
Love to me isn't only emotional no although that's the main part yes
And no neo can't say that I do, I have to say I really don't believe in online love bag

shaber
I used to twirl my hair when I was nervous embarrasment

burlyman
rolling on floor laughing

AliasNeo15
oh, oksad

yerssot
love is looking past people's bad sides/looks and see a true pearl in them
of course there has to be a little physical attraction, that's normal

silver_tears
I twirl my hair by force of habit embarrasment

shaber
Now I'm more likely to touch my chin when I'm nervous embarrasment Habitual gestures can change over time! big grin

§pearhead
I sit and blink stupidly when I'm nervous blink

lil bitchiness
Yeah sure! thumb up

Michael Myers 1

silver_tears

silver_tears

Michael Myers 1

§pearhead
With a neon light saying "look at me" yes

shaber
Or turn up the light in the webcam, that works

Michael Myers 1
thats how i get people to see me and feel sorry for me so then they pay me

Freddy Fan
i believe in it, im an australian and shes an american, weve known each other for around 4 years, we talk with a mic, webcam, and send pics, so i know shes a woman.

we are gonna meet each other soon,

btw, i got to know her for about 1 year before we started to send pics to each other.

and we are both physically and mentally and emotionally attracted to each other, so i think true love online is possible.

spookey
i quess its ok!! as you can get all the awkwardness away but will you ever meet and if so how wierd will that be

bLooMiLiCioUs
*shrugs* why not?i think it can be found anywhere under the sunsmile

spookey
well i talk to my b/f via the net its cheaper and easier...........

Ushgarak
Well, you know my views on this, Irene.

Love is a very serious and in-depth thing, and you need to know someone extremely well to be truly in love with them. And I am absolutely 100% certain that you cannot get this from an on-line relationship, no matter how close, and no matter how much talking or webcamming you do. In fact, I think the webcamming makes absolutely no difference at all. It;s morer than just mannerisms. You have to MEET someone before you really know them- properly meet.

You can form close and affectionate friendships on-line, as I am sure many of us have- but love? For what my opinion is worth, I give a big no. And as a lot of people know, I have been in this kind of situation myself, and I have seen a LOT of people be fooled into thinking they were in love on-line- only to be devastated when they find out the truth.

People on-line tend to fall in love with an ideal, a facsimile. No-one comes across the same on-line as they do in real life, and when you like someone on-line you tend to view them as being rather more perfect than they actually are. The emotion you tend to feel for on-line people is inevitably a little bit superficial and it cannot be compared to the true depth of emotion you can have for a genuine love-experience with someone you know for real.

Of course, people who think they are in love on-line and then meet an fall in love for real, and never really notice the distinction from the facsimile beocming real, but that does not really compare to the experience of so many more for whom the feelings were the same- exactly the same- but the final result false.

But I doubt anyone will listen, and I will continue to see people who aggressively swear that they are in love with their partners and refuse to accept any opinion otherwise, and again will most likely have to find things out the hard way... more than one person at these very boards have thought they were in a loving and mutual on-line relationship, and boy, was that NOT so...

However, all that said, I think meeting a potential partner and getting to know them on-line is a FAR better way to meet someone and get to know them than just picking them up in a club or bar, or something... though having met my love on-line I am maybe a bit biased there.

lil_ms_nonblond
smile i met my bf online and we've been together for 3 years and we're getting married at the beach and we're living happily ever after. smile

Baylin
Nice thumb up

lil_ms_nonblond
so yeah. i believe in it. i've seen it happen to ppl i know. i'm making it happen for me. but most online relationships deal with like... distance and objection from friends and parents and stuff. so it gets really hard. but you just gotta stick it. yeah. smile love's love. i believe it conquers everything

Evy_O
I agree with what Silver said (*exactly* my views, there HAS to be physical attraction, it's AS important as emotional... When there is only emotional -as well as when there's only physical- it ends soon yes )
And I do agree with Ush too.

That's very sweet, lil_ms_nonblond smile But I guess you two met after all. In that way, yes it might be posible messed

Baylin
I hope it all works out for, I was in a long distant/online relationship and it was hard work. Eventually I moved over to my other halfs side of the country and its ok most of the time I still miss my friends and family though sad

Ushgarak
Woo-hoo! You know the rule, folks, Evy is Greek, no arguing...

lil_ms_nonblond
muahaha... uhm. not yet. sometime soon. the webcam is a pretty handy thingy. big grin online relationships can get *ahem naughty too... lol.

Baylin
In my case we actually met in person and I quite often visited all the other times we dated over the net and phone so I dont know if thats why it worked as well as it did smile

Ushgarak
Well, that of course works just fine!

lil_ms_nonblond
yes i would kill to see my bf for real

Baylin
why does he only pretend to be there on the web cam? confused stick out tongue

lil_ms_nonblond
smile no no. we play games on the webcam.

spookey
im soo lost............have you ever met your boyf in the flesh

lil_ms_nonblond
no-uh. unfortunately not yet. sounds dumb. but yeah. -shrug- it's cool. we've talked on the phone and stuff. wish i had more dosh to actually get a ticket to where he is.

spookey
so how do u know if its gonna work out..........i mean marriage yikes no offense but u guys havent even kissed yet

lil_ms_nonblond
smile faith. lotsa faith. lol. i sound like such a sap but yeah. we're trying real hard to keep it from falling apart. yup. and girl, our first kiss will not stop at kissing. lol. sorry. but yeah. faith.

spookey
may i ask you a question..............how old are you.......

Linkalicious
Someone at my work met someone online and got engaged to him in 3 months. I'm pretty sure she just married him for the money because now she drives a Porsche to work and they spend the weekends on their new 55ft yacht.

lil ms nonblond....how can you say that you're going to get married to someone you've never met in person? that's a bit odd to say the least...

lil_ms_nonblond
i am odd. heh. i don't knoooowwwww. we've been together for a little more than three years... yeah. hmm. i'm a sap. you have to excuse me. i have a thing for happy endings. yeah.

Linkalicious
that's cool and all...but i don't understand how you guys are "together"...

So when you go out on weekends...do you tell people you have a boyfriend? or do you just play it cool and act single?

spookey
okay we all watched fairytales and think iwant that...........but he might be totally different ofline..........

*Georgina_A*
agree yes

lil_ms_nonblond
haha. uhmm... i tell ppl i'm lesbian. lol. "together" is a good way to put it. yeah. hmm. but i love my weekends out with my single girlfriends. lol. ppl believe it when i say i'm not straight. ooo. love cali by the way. smile

lil_ms_nonblond
yup yup. i knew the risks i took. i think everyone who decides to get into their sorta thing does. yeah. hmm. but i'm never really one to be practical.

spookey
btu your 17........im older tahn that and i now that online love can work out but 3 yrs and not seeing him..........omg thats nuts

lil_ms_nonblond
yeah i know. we've been close to giving up but yeah... -shrug- hmm. lol. i think i opened pandora's box here.

lil_ms_nonblond
but i'll tell you honestly tht i think it's only coz my family's pretty broken and i kinda want to believe tht i can have something real good for myself. coz too many times in my life i've been told tht i amount to nothing and will never get anything... yup. smile so yeah. i guess this thing is a good thing for me.

Linkalicious
that's cool....well good luck with your online relationship. Hope you actually get the opportunity to meet the person before you go off making marriage plans...but good luck anyways.

spookey
yeah and i havent had a good time with life fairies tales are alwys good but they dont keep you warm........hope it works out for yah

lil_ms_nonblond
smile thanx.

Aurora

Gravity Kills
You know the risks before you start. I for one am not really into online love.

Ushgarak
Of course THAT happens, I have done that. But I don't think it is true love until AFTER you meet.

lil bitchiness
Yeah, I was refering to online romance rather than online love. Or at least i was thinking about online romance rather than online love...
Its difficult as well, especially if you live miles and miles away from each other.

raven guardia
awwwww, I WASN'T talking about you I was talking about.....well I cant say it here.
