lol internet dating please, who do you know who on the other end!!
but you can find love to maney risks!!
...WTF

Anyway. I think it's a good way to date, if you're too shy to ask a girl out or something like that.

but but but...that's a bad point because the way things are going with internet dating, every guy is going to ask girls out online,so real socialising will disappear Molly. how can someone get over his/her shyness if they only communicate behind a computer?
I think that IM-ing is becoming more of a problem than a solution.

I'm iffy on online dateing.

I think it's okay if you talk to the person a lot, have had phone conversations with them, write letters, seen pictures of them, etc. But I know some people who date people from states away and they don't really know anything about them. The person could just be using a picture of a hot guy/girl the found on the web. It could be a 40 year old pervert or something. You never know. And that's why I don't really like online dateing. Its not safe.

Well, I have plenty of very friendly relationships on the 'net - like my whole LiveJournal f-list? Those guys have seen me through more drama and tough times than anyone irl as. And people like Jinxeh? I love them, and she's like my sister, even though we've never met!

I must say I had planty relationships to guys I knew from my friends but I wasn't really happy with them. But one day I got to know a guy in a chatroom and after one week we met for the first time. sure i was exited and nervous because I didn't know what kind of guy he really is. i knew him just from a pic and from phonecalls but we were like soulmates from the first time and in march we're one year together.
By the way this is the longest relationship i ever had.....

So you see it's possible to fall in love with someone of the internet.

Orvil I've actually had one and of course fell in love with him. But later i realized it was my friend on the other line using a fake identity to get to me. She's now my ex-friend and i hate her with all passion but then again it was my fault to fall for such a lie. So i guess now, i'm against them on all levels Con

My sister is married to a guy she met on the net... I just think you have to be cautious with these things... for example when my sister went to meet him the first time she took her twin along with her and they met in a public place.

I need to add my 2 cents in.
*Sigh. Big inhale.*

I was talking to this guy online for a few months. I lied about my age and my name to protect myself, but my cousin JUST HAD to tell the truth. Of course, I tried to deny it, but he knew. He took total advantage of me. Granted, I was only 11 at the time, but I felt like something was there. After he said that he was tired of effing with me, my heart broke. It felt like my world had ended.

Enter another guy. We talked for a while and yet again. he didn't know 'me'. After a while, we "went out" (he is fron London, I'm from Connecticut.) Things were going great until he went totally bizarre on me, saying that I was mental. Things were rocky between us for the next few years until I cut off all ties from him...for a while.

But it was too late: I was addicted. I kept going back.

A few years later, I haven't talked to him in a long ass time. He still doesn't know 'me'.

So the answer to this question is no, they don't *always* work.

But if you are in one, please be careful.

It could be a 40 year old pervert or something. You never know. And that's why I don't really like online dateing. Its not safe.
Or it could be a 16 year old pervert. Smile

I actually started to really fall for a guy on a different message board. We PM'ed all the time, learning little trivial things about eavh other. I had to stop going on that site completely, because I was just too into him for being a stranger. You can't let yourself get that comfortable with strangers. It's just not safe.

Considering that most of the people who want to meet up with you online are pedo's, I'd say don't trust anyone =)

My auntie recently signed up to a dating agency online and met up with someone... it didn't turn out good...

Just go to a bar!

Errm... you could have said it a lot nicer than that...

Yes, someone could slip something into your drink and yes, you could get raped... But I'd rather everyone in the bar had seen his face than no one knowing who the hell my internet friend is

You don't have to come into contact with people on the internet though. It's far more dangerous in a physical way to go to a bar because you can't do anything physical on the internet Dno

I've done the whole internet dating thing

First guy I ever dated was online. His name was Josh. Turned out to be a girl. He/She managed to ruin a perfectly good friendship which, in the past three years, still hasn't mended itself.
Second guy. We had a "thing". He neglected to mention he had a girlfriend. I found out through a lot of MySpace stalking. There was a lot of drama in there, but it doesn't matter.

I'm currently dating a guy online right now. He only lives two hours away from me, as opposed to the first guy who lived in Denmark and the second guy who lived in DC [I'm from Canada].
The guy I'm dating now I've known for a while. He dated another one of my friends online.

If you're going to do the whole internet relationship thing, it's best to be very sure of their identity.
Webcams help, but aren't the most effective. There are ways to stream other feeds as your own.
Ask them to make a sign for you or something

Srsly just be careful.
I still haven't lived the whole "I dated a girl" thing down.

Alright.
So my view is biased because I'm in one.
It can be done.
But it depends on the people involved.
They have to be strong, trusting and stable, hopefull too.
Strong because it can be hard.
Not being able to touch & hold them like a 'normal' couple.
Trusting because obviously you can't be there with them to see what they are doing.
Stable, because if you are not stable then interent relationships can change people, and not in a good way. They can make you become a recluse....spend all of yer time on the computer (I know most of you guys do that anyway, but yer know what I mean Wink).
Hopefull, hopefull that it will and may turn into something Smile
You need time and patience aswel, obviously.

They can work though Smile
I've been seeing Tracey for 18 months on the 7th April Smile
I met her once in London last year and have just got back from spending the week in Ireland with her Wink
& she's staying at mine for two weeks this summer.
