It's up to the individual. I personally am too cynical to believe in Internet relationships. And yes, there is danger. But if it works out then I have no right to judge. Do what you will.

I've been in a couple.

up to 6 months and longer.
One with a GSBian actually.

...whoever is getting into it; try to run away from the feeling of hopelessness you'll feel when it strikes you that you'll never be able to even talk to them in person.


Yep.

And yes, ive had one with a GSBian as well.

But as someone else said, make sure its the person who they say it is first. Phonecalls and stuff help... but in the long run...

...helps if they plan on going there or you going there in the near future so you dont feel that horrible depressing feeling that you'll never be able to physically tell them how you feel rather than just words.

The yearning to touch them and actually look at them hurts. A lot. Photos, webcams and long distance phone calls arent enough.

I'm for them.
My brother is moving in with a girl from England who he met over the internet.
I think it's just the new "going out to pull" sorta thing.
And I have a friend who moved to Austrailia to live with her girlfriend.

you just have to be careful
and whenever you finally meet someone you should take a friend with you and meet at a public place
I'm in love with someone from the Internet ♥

(don't kill me Kitti) I'm against it
mainly because I know all the tricks

with internet relationships you have the "backspace" button, you have the ability to create a believable facade, and overall you can manipulate the relationship by making claims they can't deny because all they know about you is what you tell them (they don't know your parents, friends, etc.)

it's just so easy to manipulate even if you're just deleting something embarrassing before you say it, then you are being deceiving

I know, I agree with it because someone can act exactly how you want them to act. They can delete anythnig geeky they might usually say, and replace it with something that might please you. Although, I do admit, I was a victim to this online dating thing. I thought i fell in love with this girl online, but when we called each other adn talked, it was so not like it was online. It was akward and forced. But sometimes its a good lonliness fixer

Romantic relationships over the internet wouldn't work for me, I could never trust anyone... though this boy online has a thing for me because he knows absolutely nothing about me and I'm "elusive"... who's he kidding, if he met me he'd run away screaming!

I'm all for it. I trust people on the Internet far more than I do my goddamn Mother.

Now that the internet is such a major part of society it doesn't seem odd that it would merge with dating. I never would have met my girlfriend if it weren't for the internet, or GSB for that matter. And I'm happier than I've ever been in my life because of her. We were friends before dating. Phone calls, MSN conversations...

I'm going to spend Thanksgiving with her and her family in California [I'm in Nebraska] and I'm moving to California to be with her next year. We're going to get married and have a family.

So being in a relationship like this... how can love be wrong no matter where it started?

I know i'd never do it.
One: because I don't trust people easily. Not even my closest friends.
Two: for all I know it could be pedophile i'm talking to.
Three: I'd like to hug/touch/kiss that person whom i'd be seeing.
little things like that...

That is a really sucky part about internet relationships.
I won't get to kiss my girlfriend for the first time until 8 days before our six month anniversary.
But she always said it's about wanting the person more than wanting someone right there. She says that's why so many long-distance relationships fail.

Im ok with it. One lady from my moms job got married with a guy she met on-line. Its a difficult thing when you are from very far away countries. And even if it doesnt work out you always have good friends

I am also in one, and I love her with all my heart.
She means the utter and total word to me.

I think it can work, you have to put your mind to it.
And you have to have trust, and be prepared for the worst, x

Right now all I have to say is that it is sucking...grrr
Im in one and Mike is AMAZING, but not being able to talk to him, and see him and shit is driving me crazy...
Its been like 2 weeks... I CANT HANDLE IT!
No email, no nothing...
We are meeting in a month and a half, but it seems so far away...
I want to talk to him at least evey other day...
Is that too much?
Damn it...
I hate this waiting crap...grrrr
Other than this, I love the whole online dating thing, cause if not I wouldnt have found Mike, and well he means so much to me, and Im falling hard and fast...
He could be it for me, we are so much alike in ways we need to be, and different where we need to be, and we want the same things in each other...
Its all so amazing, almost too good to be true kinda...
Damn it...
I just want to talk to him, and Im getting frustrated...grrr
Ok you guys so don't care, so Ima shut up now...

Yep.

And yes, ive had one with a GSBian as well.


I luv how u ppl say "GSBian" lol, cuz I'm a GSBian, INOian, and AFOian...*cough*
anyway back to the topic...like a lot of ppl r saying, if its safe. I mean, how do u know that ur cute 15 yr old bf is acutally cute, 15 or even a boy? i have like 12 internet relationships w/ppl on the internet (not dating or anything) and if i just feel uncomfortable w/it...i just stop talking to them...anbd considering that im only 12, my parents freak out about the whole thing, but i guess parents are that way...
i think internet relationships r fine..great even...sumtimes
