Is it possible to fall in love with someone you never met?Page 15 of 61    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
sure it's possible , but even more likely is falling in love with the idea of being in love with the person. For me personally I would have to get to know the person ,well , in person! you may pour your heart and soul out to someone and feel the feelings of love but until they are right infront of you , face to face you won't know.

Guilty. I've been so cautious about my feelings, and I've been hurt so badly in the past, and I honestly was not anticipating falling in love again.
But I did. And we haven't met yet. I think the phsycial part of meeting someone is just the icing on the cake. Being able to talk for 5 or 6 hours a night is something that you very rarely get to do in a relationship where you picked someone up at a bar or something. You connect on a much deeper level. Besides, the ammount of time we spend on the web-cams or the phone - meeting in person is not going to be a big shocker.
What can I say? I loves ya the_armorer2002 . . . and you friggin know it. LOL
*hugs*
AmazingMe . . . always amazing you . . .

My dear, any man worth the skin hes printed on would give everything to be with you. Only now your mine.

I have had such horrible relationships in the past, and successive too. Its made me believe that true love, or what I've found, unconditional love, was something I was never going to feel. Even though I had met everyone through online dating, and they all turned out bad for me, I felt I still couldn't give up.

.....and then i met Amazing Me. Turned around my perspective on everything. Yes, it truly is possibly to fall for someone, and not have ever touched them. Through online dating, and phone calls and messenger, you can learn more about someone, how they think, and how they feel. Its like you get the inside track on them, because they are there, alone with their thoughts, so you get let in. I've fallen for Amazing Me, and hard. Yes, I was headed out west anyways, but you gave me something to look forward to....life with an amazing love.

Everyone who reads this...live life to the fullest, and live every day like it was your last. Life is so very fragile, and short.... you need to see things you've never seen, and do things you've never done. Throw caution to the wind. Because one day....it will be over. And all you take with you are the memories. And the only things in life you ever regret.....

....are the chances you never take.

Well there you have it! For all the people that came here to say it can't happen, not possible, is only infatuation, only cyber fantasy etc. BULL!

You just don't know unless it happens to you. It happened to me and now maybe it is happening a second time. I found her 1200 miles away. BUT we both will speed up the first face to face meet. But even that will not change the way I know the heart and soul of this beautiful woman already. We meet June 12th.

To you AmazingMe and to you Armorer2002 , I congratulate you both and wish you all the love and happiness you deserve.

Man, how some people just don't get it.....

The second time?

If the first time was true you'd still be with her. Geesh!! People can't (won't) segregate lust and love....

And the fact that you list yourself as "seperated" and anticipating "the second time"....

I'll stop right there.

Eastsideeddie.....seeing someone from the net is the same as real life, you just can't tell. You hope, you pray, that you've found the right one, and maybe it will even feel that way for a while, but if its not meant to be, it will end. We shouldn't make fun of him for failing, we should applaud him for trying. He sounds genuine, and I wish him the best of luck, he deserves it.

Meeting someone online gives you a rare opportunity, unlike meeting someone in person at a bar, etc,..... to get inside their head, learn so much about them in such a little amount of time, and to keep space between you until you feel comfortable enough in your knowledge of the person to meet them face to face, and begin forever.

Don't decry such a wonderful dating tool. For the past 3 years, I have found my girlfriends, numbering 3 over those years, and even though they didn't work out, I thank God for every moment I had that was good. Because, in the end, all you take with you are the memories. Instead of being pissy at being rejected, or being taken, be thankful for being able to experience those good things with that lady, and know hat it will help you grow as an individual.

I agree with ^. Theres really not alot of difference at all. I've dated girls offline and on and its always been the same. You don't figure out who the REAL person is until some time into a relationship. I just wish people could be themselves up front....if you are a dork, wear it on your sleeve. I do

LMAO, kr8ztwin.....your a good guy!! You so very right....be honest, with your lady and with yourself....all the best relaionships are based on honesty, trust, and communication. Give your all, 110%.....so if it ends, you can atleast say you tried your best, and it just wasn't meant to be.

It might be possible, but actually "in love" very unlikely. You may feel very attracted to the ideas and the words. I think it would be more of a facination. Anyone can say anything online, and many do. Until you actually meet the person and spend time with them to know if the words and actions are real, It's just a fantasy. Just my personal experience and opinion.

okay but didn't most of you fall in love *after* You met?
you may have initially started talking online or emailing/calling but at some point you meet right? isn't that when the love starts or is confirmed?

AmazingMe, the_armorer2002, jim33903, congratulations to all of you!

Armorer is absolutely right in saying that you can be more open and learn more about another person online than you could in person in a short span of time.

Yes, meeting in person is just the icing on the cake as previously stated. Kind of the final connection to be made between two people.

Yes, i've had it happen to me before and it has now happened again.

Just because the first time the other person was not being totally honest does not mean that I didn't love him with all I had.

For crying out loud, living life is full of ups and downs and if you aren't experiencing the ups and downs, you're not living life!

Life is way too damn short to be sitting back and letting it pass you by!

IMHO anyway.

You have not MET anyone. You've become infatuated with someone's cyber-persona. That cyber-persona fits what you need exactly. You may meet in real life and find that there's no chemistry.
This begs the question; why haven't you met? If you say he's on the other side of the planet then you've just been fooling yourself all along. (Oh no, he's not on the other side of the planet, he's only 670 miles away )
People listen. Building a meaningful and lasting relationship requires live human contact. Without it, you got nuthin'.

I have to say yes it is possible to fall in love with some one you have never met...It happened to me ... he was from australia and myself in canada. we talked for months on internet, phone, emails, talked for hours daily... we sent pictures to eachother all the time. We were saying "love you" even before ever meeting. We met about 4 months after talking and hit it off. We decided to do the long distance relationship and eventually he moved here. And no matter what people say about this subject- all I can say is just listen to your heart and take things from there.

Really I must say yes it is very possible to fall head over heels in love with someone you have never met if the right set of circumstances are there and the right words are said. If a person says the right words and your heart is really open then bingo love of a sincere kind can happen. If treated wrong heartbreak of a totally devastating kind can happen.

I have found that deep affection is certainly possible...but if the other person has deep personal issues and pretends to be fine then it won't work out in the end. If anyone wants to attempt love on here just pray that the other person is telling the truth because trust me it stings bad when one day you're blissfully happy and the next they don't want you anymore.

I think it's possible to fall in love with the persona of a person. How can you truly love someone you havent kissed, looked in the eye, touched, spent time with. You can only truly know someone when you've spent time together in real life. Yes I am who I am on here BUT...live with me and you'll see a different side of me. lol

Scew it. I say yes! Perhaps "YOU" can. I hate it when others try to tell me how I can and can not feel. Ony "YOU" can decide if you can love someone.
