Yes it is very possible to fall in love over the internet, and yes sometimes it does not work out. I met a guy over the internet, spent 3 years with him, ended up having a child with him. After my son was born I ended up leaving him, there were major issues there with his mother, who we lived with. Then I ended up with another guy I had met years ago on the internet, and once again it did not work out, but that one is a whole different story. I am happy to say recently I met a wonderful woman on the internet, in fact here on Lush, and so far we are doing great, she is everything I could ask for in a partner. So I guess your chances of meeting the right person on the internet could be just as good as they would be if you met in person. I don't think the internet has anything to do with it, I think it is all chemistry. If it is meant to be, then it will happen............

Hey, is it possible to fall in love on the internet...yes. i've done it. i had my first "lush crush" It didn't last long and when it failed, i was "crushed" but have moved on. Now I am way more careful about who i crush on.... especially on Lush...

Surprisingly....yes. Lesson learned though, be honest. Always be honest. And I speak knowing this firsthand.

I believe meeting people is the basic key and the internet is a means of very fast communication coupled with technology that reduces distance virtually therefore it has changed the way we feel about relationships I think, or rather added to the way we feel. I wrote a song about it and have performed it quite a few times publicly with a decent response. It is possible to be very open with people and because you can still remain to a degree anonymous you can say very revealing things without any huge repercussions - but this very intimacy can conversley help you to really know someone which can be very attractive. Of course people can put a different face on but I am talking about the more honest examples whereby people admit personal failings and worries as well as candid sexuality and very positive things.

Love knows no boundaries (and I'm not waxing poetic!) You can fall in love through letters, over the phone, on a bus, and yes over the Internet. It's all about meeting that one person you have a connection with. However that comes about.

Maybe. It's definitely possible to become worryingly obsessed with someone, whether that's love or not is subjective I guess.

In some ways it could even be easier to fall in love online: we may find it easier to open up to someone in a virtual environment, without our hang-ups as to how we see ourselves.

I think you can fall in lust, not love over the net.

My Mum used to tell me that love wasn't like a light bulb that came on with the flick of a switch, and I believe she was right. Love takes time to grow, and needs constant nurturing in order for it to flourish fully.

I'm sure people who meet via the web can indeed fall in love, but in real time and in the real world - so very different from the fantasy that is cyber-space.

Completely Agree!!!

I think that you can fall in love with the image created from online correspondence, but you cannot truly fall in love with someone until you know them face to face. The reason being is that a person can say all the right things on line despite their personality, and when you finally meet they might be totally different in person. Thats when you see the real person behind the words and you then decide if you are in love with them.

Yes I think it is possible to fall in love over the net. At least think you are. I have had sweet girls say so to me and when things happened in either of our lifes to keep us from meeting or to continue it does hurt. Over the net you can be more free with your thoughts, especially if at first it is lust and the two of you are having cyber sex and then it turns to friendship and you find yourselves talking about other things than just sex. It is much easier to be honest with your thoughts over the net than in person. We all know the unsure silence or stumbbling when first dating or just talking. But sexing and then joking and talking and finding you can express yourself a lot easier when the person is miles and miles away. Some on here have said hey have been hurt or that when they met found they weren't made for each other. But that is life. The same thing could happen with someone you meet at work or school or thru friends, etc. Life is too short not to take a chance.

It is possible. I've fell in love with a guy that made me laugh and put a smile on my face after I was dumped by an idiot. Sadly, he died and I was heartbroken. Several years later, I met a guy on here and so far, hasn't called me, never got on a plane to visit me, only sends me texts. I told him that I want him to CALL ME, not send me texts. A relationship cannot be carried on just by text messaging. I'm not sure if he was ever serious about having a relationship with me. I decided to not waste my time on an online relationship/LDR when I can meet someone in real life.

Yes. It's happened to me. Twice, and I'm currently seeing a man I first met on a non-sex discussion board 16 years ago. It's complicated (long-distance), we only get to see each other two months, but it's the most wonderful (often we say unbelievable) love affair imaginable.

I met my husband on a phone dating line before the internet was around much in 1996. we were married in 2002 and we had 9 good years together. He died in April of 2011 so yes i do think it can happen. I am currently chatting with a man from England that i met through lush and I care for him a great deal. But we both live our own lives and just come together to chat and for each others companionship. He cares for me as much as i care for him but we both realize that we could not have a real life relationship because of the distance(I am in the states) and we each have our own lives that neither of us are willing to change for the other. As long as the expectations are very clear and one person is not expecting more then the other person can give then I think an internet relationship can be very successful. I am very happy with mine. but I also have no interest in getting remarried...i like my independence.
