    Imagine the people you're talking about on a forum where they hang out ending up on the thread where you're talking about them.

    right. firstly, it was an accident. Secondly, he will be pissed off if you do that and as far as I know it's only me you have the problem with?

    I've started admitting that it's a thing irl anyway.
    Hmmmmm this seems interesting :curious:

    I think these people live in some kind of bubble where they actually count TSR users as their friends.

    For the few that are remotely serious about a solely online rship/stuff/all that other bs, I can only imagine how hard they'll cringe thinking about what they were doing when they snap back in to reality

    They're derailing the thread though. If it was on-topic, I wouldn't mind it at all.

    But I fail to see the issue with two people meeting online, meeting in person and continuing forward with a relationship. People will meet where there's a medium of communication to get to know one another, irrespective of the means.
    Nothing wrong with that at all, but we're talking about a different demographic here.

    People are forgetting how to take the initial steps of dating in person.

    Why be limited to just people in your area? I like people who are intelligent and can engage in meaningful conversation, being a student increases that chance. My dad was living in London, my mum up here in Scotland. They met through friends by chance, they made it work until he eventually moved up here.
    So meeting someone on here who you connect with is no different really. Exchange pictures. Then meet up. See where things go....

    It seems a bit pointless flirting with people who are usually hundreds of miles away. Even if it was the start of something I couldn't be doing with the months of clunky pre-meet chatting. Even using dating sites locally, more than 7 pre-meet messages or more than 5 miles away and they can GTFO.

    give it a rest. I currently am the only person who knows all the pretense you enjoy to do, but i dont really like when people lie and treat others like idiots. you should fess up yourself rather than me have to spill the beans. trying to treat me like a sheep will result in serious ****ery for you, i assure you that.

    Meh, if it makes them happy then good for them I suppose :dontknow:

    I see nothing wrong with chatting to people on here, or even growing to be attracted to them over time. I equally have no issue with people then meeting in person and hitting it off. Good for them.

    I do find it unfortunate when people are serious about being in a relationship with somebody they've never met but, again, they are not harming me in any way so - if it makes them happy - good for them.

    Most people here are young, and many not very social. It is thus not enormously surprising that such people use relationships they form on here as a proxy for those they don't form in real life.

    Live and let live.

    Seriously, can you have this out with him instead of me?

    Not that I'm bothered by you having a go at me, but this ultimately started as a result of him sending the picture into the group chat instead of to me.?

    How far society has fallen.

    I just saw a thread where a girl was talking about how she's found a new 'bae' (on TSR).

    Imagine that. There are actually guys that desperate they will message daily a girl they've never met or seen, just in the hope of getting something. There are girls that crave attention so much that they encourage these guys to do that.

    Are you that socially inept you are unable to have functioning relationships with other people in real life?

    Such is life.
    Yes I am that socially inept. What's your point?

    Are they though? I'm sure throughout time there's always been people who have been a bit awkward about it/shy/socially inept/who fear the opposite sex/whatever you want to call it. I think it's not so much people forgetting, more a case that those who previously stood no chance now have an opportunity or platform to meet someone via something that isn't so direct. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Edit: And of course, the internet means you hear a lot more from such people as you would've in the past (Those lamenting their relationship woes I mean).

    True but surely most of the 'dating' in the early stages is to workout what type of person someone is, their goals, outlook on life, aspirations, religious attitude, career aims, kids?, sex etc etc. That can all be done and more virtually or through text.

    I think it depends on how mature the people in question are, how serious are they, how compatible are they? etc etc but I see no reason why it can't work...

    What is any different about seeing a girl at a party, saying a few words and adding her on FB and then texting etc planning on meeting up? a very brief encounter in person, that's all.
