I’ve had multiple online relationships that were long-term (the longest was around 2-3 years and everything else was just within 6 months). I think it really just depends on how both you and your partner’s mindset is. Personally, I didn’t really take it “seriously” in a sense that I never saw myself having a stable future with people I dated online. It just comes down to how you approach your relationship especially since its progressed through unconventional means. Communicating is important but its also essential to be able to understand one another’s points, otherwise talking is just useless. I definitely think its possible to make an online relationship work out and progress further in these current times through Facetime, Zoom, etc.

I recently got out of a 9 month one. I never met her in real life which was a shame (Due to long distance and covid).

Even though we never officially had a relationship, it hurts but it is what it is. Thing is with online, depending on the mindset of people, they can disappear out of your life in seconds, with no answer as to what went wrong. So tread carefully. Also its always best to get to know someone irl as thats how ultimately it would be in the end

Is the intention to eventually meet the person? I think that can work, and obviously it's difficult to meet people right now.

Online with the intention of never meeting? If you find it fun, then you do you, but eventually most people will want something "real".

Yeah, I was in one for 1.5 years with a guy. We kinda fizzled out cos I think at one point there's not much you can talk about or do online with that person and it becomes pretty repetitive. He was in a different country and we both didn't have the means to meet

Same thing could and does happen in real life of course, but there's a much higher chance of that happening on the Internet and as a previous poster said you're seen as more disposable because all they have to do is close a tab and poof you're gone.

They are a bad idea, especially if you live far apart. I think that those who end up in relationships online are missing something e.g. it is self serving, or they are not happy with their current life.
