Sure they can but the obsession will wear off at some point.

Of course relationships can come out of Lush. It just depends on if the people involved are wanting long-term or short-term.

Honestly glad for for you. But meeting on a site, evenwhen you find you know the person in reality, there is no promise they arent laighing at you while they type

I'd like to think that love can blossom anywhere provided two people are honest, committed and are on the same page about what they want. Sometimes starting online works even better because you spend a great deal of time talking and therefore learning so much about the other person than you might not get around to learning as quickly if you met in person. The only issue or concern I have with meeting someone on sites like Lush is the lure that this place has. Not everyone comes here for the same reasons and everyone's level of interaction differs so as much as I'd want to trust someone I fell in love with on here, I think I'd still always wonder if they are truely done with Lush. I'd like to think I'd be enough but who the hell really knows :P

I don't see any reason why a relationship started online couldn't last. Last however long any relationship started anywhere might "last". On the other hand, I don't believe in this "the One" business or a singular "soul mate". I think in life, we may meet several people with whom we can have a relationship of whatever degree or depth. Forever? Not so much.

I kind of hope so, there's a special man here, we'll likely never meet in person but we have a lot of online fun together and I'd hate for that to not last at least for a while

Everyone else above have said it one way or another...personally I have formed some good friendships through a few adult sites, while others were basically a one night stand or chat, depends on how you look at it. It takes a lot of patience and 'fishing'.

when you met someone on line, you get to know them in a completely different way than you would do in real life. So long as you are honest with each other I don't see any reason why it shouldn't last. The drawback though is, how do you really know the other person is being 100% honest with you? you're never really sure if they are saying the same things to you as they are to someone else or several others.

I certainly hope so since I now live with my Lushie. Difference is though, we met really quickly as we lived close so not technically an online relationship. You know you are both into sex which is great. We have an Open Relationship with an "always together" rule..so threesomes etc. We are very much love in love. So I would say YES.

As someone who is an eternal optimist (even if I never let it outwardly show) and very open minded, I think a relationship beginning on Lush can certainly last. I know there are people who think finding a relationship here is weird or non-traditional, but it's really not that different than meeting someone in a bar or at the grocery store. Yes, there's a computer to hide behind. But I am a firm believer that being who you are and being up front and honest with someone, even with the computer separating you, you can still build a solid foundation for something special. Obviously at some point just chatting on a computer is not going to be enough. Being able to adapt and change with the confines of the relationship will really be the determining factor in whether or not it lasts. I think if you really care about someone, though, and you're very honest with them, adapting to those changes will be easy. It might require work and effort, but what meaningful relationship doesn't? Just because it started on Lush doesn't make it any different from any other relationship, in my opinion. It just depends on the amount of effort you're willing to put into getting to know someone in ways that might not be the most traditional (but what's traditional anymore?).

Big Hugs Relationship that begins on LUSH may last depending on how truthful the friends/ partners are and what they r looking 4. It also depends on the geographical proximity and cultural affinity. Even as two involved persons belong to 2 distant geographical regions and 2 different cultural roots, the relationship may last if their minds meet in this virtual world. Congrats 2 all lovers on LUSH.

Yes, as long as you have compatible expectations. If you get overly intense too fast or start putting demands, rules and outside monogamy limitations onto it, it's more likely to crash and burn a lot faster. I do think you have let yourselves into each other's lives beyond just words on a screen to get the depth of connection necessary to keep things interesting and keep the flame burning. If proximity or timing is an issue, enjoy things for what they are, but yeah - it can last longer than you'd expect if you keep it fun and real and drop the rules and games.

Yes but it depends on those 2 people and their willingness to persue the relationship. As long as distance doesnt bother tnem, then yes I think the relationship would work. If distance is a problem for both people or just one person, then no I cant see it working.

This is my opinion based on personal experience!

Not sure about Lush, but two people who met on a science fiction forum I post on, have recently got married. I guess that love can blossom anywhere.

I met someone here and we end up meeting in person. We are very close now and it worked better than I imagined.

So far so good! hello1

Yes they can but again, regardless of where and how you meet, honesty is critical and trust is earned. After that, anything is possible if two people want it badly enough.

Define relationship. Love and marriage or friendship? In the end it doesn't matter which. For any relationship to flourish takes work from each person. It can not be a one sided affair. Both must strive to make it last. Give equal amount of time and energy to build something together that is stronger than each other separately. Relationships can last a lifetime if both are willing to work hard to make it a reality. On Lush as in life.

I have no experience of "relationships that started at Lush" but why would they be in any way different than relationships that begin anywhere else (aside from the much higher probability of having a much better idea of your sexual compatibility beforehand, which; to my mind at least; would be a plus you'll get in few other "places")?

Unless you continue moving forward in real life, it's hard to maintain.

But that requires time and effort /need/want from both parties.

I'll always love Lynar with all my heart...no matter what happens.
