"Some couples who have met online even spend their anniversaries chatting with their partners in cyberspace as the place they met "is special to them"."

That's just sad (speaking as someone who's been with someone she met online for over 7 years)

Online relationships are a bit sad - in my experience, people who go online to find love do it because they can't get anyone to go out with them in real life. Sorry but true!

Most people who find love online (like in real life) weren't looking for it

I don't think so. I think love found over the net is more genuine, emotional love, because people are more open and honest about themselves, and meet people on the basis of who they are, not what they look like, which is surely what real love is all about.

often people are too shy to go out there in person at first though - so if it makes them happy meeting online then so be it..

How do you know they are more honest. You can't know until you meet them face to face and if you meet them completely seperate from their normal life its likely you won't have as much to do with their normal environment so you aren''t going to know whether they have told you the truth or not.

A persons life is not who they are :mad: . All that matters in a person is who they are, not what their life in the past or present or anything. Maybe they are truer because of this, than if they were in real life, because real life is not neccessarily the real person.

A persons personality is coloured by the life they lead. I certainly wouldn't be the same person and have the same opinions if I had different life experiences. You can't seperate the two. Its far easier to make a fantasy life online I know people who have done it. It depends what love you are talking about true love has no hope if you can't get on together in every day life can it?

I can agree with that, but the past is not the present. A person in the present is the suhe past that they have had, but at any moment, is not that past, but instead are the person that they are.
I didn't say that it could, but maybe someones everyday life would be different in a life where they are in love, so could not be measured in terms of their life in the past.

A persons life and behaviour is never going ot be completely disassociated from their past. IMO we all learn and develop from our history. I'm not against online relationships I just diagree that they are any more honest than regular ones. i think they last longer just because people talk more rather than jumping into it and find common interests before they date but that doesn't mean they are more honest.

Well i disagree with that, but thats just from my own experience.
And i think that they are more honest, because most people think what is the point of being dishonest, because its on the net, and they wont lose anything by being themselves, but might lose something by not being themselves.

Then good luck to them.

If they have no luck in real life, at least they're doing something about it and choosing alternative methods.
