No Verissa, it is not possible, but you can become infatuated with the potential of what that person MAY bring to your life.

Its totally possible to fall in love with someone you never met - but BUT you gotta realise you are in love with an idealised version of this person!!!
when they arent there in your face - day to day - its easy to love them - to idealise them - they can be whatever you want them to!
you can believe only the best of them!
met him - check out the chemistry and see what happens !

I never believed it could happen well to me any way and it has.
I now plan to travel to the otherside of the world to meet a beautiful woman.
Who Knows what I'm about to say, finishes my sentences. Likes the same things as me, same music, has similarities oh the my perfect woman from the colour of her hair to the colour of her eyes. So to take soomething from her profile and a movie we've all seen SHE (TRACEY) COMPLETES ME!

I really don't think that you can fall in love with someone that you have never met. You can have some online talking relationship with someone for a very long time. But what it really all boils down to is talk. You don't know the person, they aren't 'REAL'.
You build them up in your head as to what you want them to really be. You don't seem them in action in the real world. You have no clue what their little quirks are and how they really react to things.
I would say that it's a no go.

Unless you're face to face with someone you're not in love with them, you're in love with what you ideally imagine them to be in your head. Everyone always presents themselves at their absolute best in a virtual-relationship, and you never get the whole story.

Even when you're face-to-face with a person, you can't know them completely.
Even when it's face-to-face, it's still your interpretation of them that you are in love with.
Fortunately, your interpretation has the chance to become more and more accurate over time.
And sometimes, people can exceed your expectations, even after years of knowing them.
I think you just have to keep the two separate. One is a hope, an idea or dream. One is a real person.
It would be a shame to care so much for the ideal that you weren't open to appreciating the real person.

In a word - YES!
And often at the least likely time, with the most unexpected person!
Call it fate, karma or destiny but sometimes you just know it is right.

In a quirky twist of fate, I responded to an email from a man on the other side of the world - not in the hope of finding love, but because he seemed funny and I thought he would be a great chat buddy.
Fate, however, had a different plan and from the first conversation I knew he was someone very special.

We cannot predict what the future holds, but I have never had such an amazing connection with someone and while I have fought it tooth and nail (for all the reasons so many other posters have pointed out) yes - I am falling in love!

I know the true test will be when we meet face to face (and yes - that is happening and not soon enough for either of us - lol)
I don't ever want to have regrets and if for some reason things dont work out, knowing him will have made it all worth it and at least I will never wonder "What if..."

It's happened to me but I had the benefit of several photos and phone conversations. Without those, Id say "no".

Yes, it is possible to fall in love with a stranger. I met someone one on here yesterday and we talked for 8 hours straigt. what's the name of you mystery man? Mine is scott donze. the only problem is the distance. but it is nice to get to know a person first before you actually meet them.

You can fall in love with someone you never met, but the thing is does the feeling stay after you've met. When you date online and over the phone the other person and you can hide little quirks about each other that could drive each other insane and when you finally notice it when you meet the person it's normally ends up a do or die situation with the relationship. I've been there done that, not successful... but it can succeed.

Interesting question.

As there are 31 pages for this post I hope i'm not going to repeat what someone else has already said but its to much to read all that.

Any Huuuw,

To love another human being, I think we only love what people represent. of course physical attraction and chemistry as well. So if someone is online, and is representing themselves acurately, i think it is possible. There is a factor that i think is impossible to clearely interpet over long distances, but if all else is good then i think the chances are good that something may be there.

I also think that some people have addictions to internet relationships, so if you find yourself with someone online becareful. As the last poster mentioned it can be wonderful but it is over the internet. Careful with those cams.....

cheers,

YES it is. i been there done that, had the t-shirt, note the word had... we broke up, on his account, but as for me, i fell MADLY in love with this man, he was my age, wonderful, handsome, sweet, everything i EVER dreamed of, and yet i never seen him once when the feeling come over me, i could just dream of his touch, kiss, feel, etc. and it made me melt inside, and then all over again, i could see us together, and just being there happy, as far as i am concerned i am positive that you CAN once you find the right one, some people just take longer then others... and if you feel this way, i think it is possible for someone to fall in love with someone they never met, its not the looks, its what they are like inside.

From my experience I would say yes it is possible the most important thing is both
have to be very honest about who they are to the other one. If both people portray
exactly who they are then it is possible. I met a guy and fell in love with him however
we were both very honest about who we were. When I first laid eyes on him six months
later I really already knew him from talking to him over the phone for a very long time.
The only reason it didn't work out was because of distance but to this day we are very
good friends and both agree that the time we spent together was the best time we have
ever had.

I think you mostly fall in love with people you never met who are famous. Like the Beatles or Bob Dylan. Or Jack Nickelson or Tom Cruise. Or Jesus or Buddha, or Emily****nson, or Charlotte Bronte. I'm in love with a pretty boy from a Harley Davidson mag, but I know that's just silly. His picture is by my bed.

For those that say you can fall in love with someone you've never met, you're not really falling in love with them, you're falling in love with the person you've created in your head.

You can talk to someone for years everyday, emails, phone calls, letters, but still you don't get to know all of them without doing things together. The parts of the person you don't know about, you fill in with your imagination. Most people don't even realize they're doing this, but we all do it.

It's that combination of what you know, what you've imagined that you fall in love with. When you meet the person, if they don't live up to the person you've created in your head, you will have troubles and quickly fall out of love, then come on pof forums ranting and raving about how people mis-reprezent themselves.

I have no idea how to answer this. I said "no" when the thread was first started. I've had time to think about it.
I think it's more than a one dimensional question. Maybe.

This happens even when you live with someone for years. The fact of the matter is that it is possible for some people to find love with another for who they are just by talking to them. It’s the soul they fall in love with. I do agree that a lot of people lie and misrepresent themselves..but does that make the other person's feelings less valid? No it does not. Wait until you meet that exceptional person..or perhaps you won't because you're too close minded. Your soul mate could be across the ocean and because you aren't looking with an open mind and heart you may miss out on the extraordinary.

Too sad for words. If it weren't for meeting this man and falling in love with his soul I might have missed out on some of the most wonderful people I have ever met. I would never have began this thread if not for him. I still love him, just can't be with him. It's too bad we would have made a very happy life together.

I agree with smile (msg2) and hope that her ass wasn't "handed to her" too roughly!

You may think it's different for you, but I doubt it.......for me, I have to look into someone's eyes.....and you can only do that face to face. You also can't know what their touch, their kiss, or holding each other feels like until you do it......it's just how you THINK it will feel.
Yes, there's a chance you may be right......but more often you'll be wrong.
