Yes it is definitely possible....but ofcourse I dont think its impossible until you actually talk to them. A voice says a whole lot more than just an internet chat. But yes....there is such a thing as love at first sight!

Well at least in my books there is. Cheers!

girl i know how you feel, I had the same thing happened to me. I was chatting to this guy and I fell in love with his personality. I thought to him often, then I seen his picture one day and I was still attracted to him. I know that if I was to meet him berfore I knew his personality I don't think I would of found him attractive. Personality sometimes makes the person beautiful.

The only question I have for you is how do you know he is being perfectly honest with you? It is very easy for people to lie on the phone and on the internet. They can be very good at it. I am just saying from experience. I am not trying to ruin this all for you, but you have to look at both sides. You are right when you say when things are too good to be true they usually are.. but I hope you are right

I would rather love someone for who they are than what they look like. I know people lie. It's a sad fact..and if the situation was that he had lied about who he was I might have felt different. He was who he claimed to be he's just a confused man. I don't think he knows what he wants or needs. That is ok I still am happy to have felt this way at all.

I've spent most of my life feeling very little for people. To have fallen in love with someone for who they are, not knowing what they looked like...wow, what a feeling! I have found since I met him I am more open and caring, I have since met more wonderful people. And even some that I can say I love..mind and soul for their hearts and souls...my Bradley especially...he is such a wonderful person it makes me want to be a better woman..Christina, Shai(John) my Topiary cow Mr. Moo...Princess Picklebottom..cuddly canuck...troublemaker...cynderella...all my dear friends I love them.

So YES it is possible to love someone without ever meeting them. I wish things had worked out different with the wonderful man I wrote this thread about but sadly it didn't...I love him nonetheless and for all you cynics who say it can’t happen; bite me!!!!!!

Verissa. Way to go! For those that say its not real till you touch... you're too cynical. Verissa didn't say she had met the man of her life and that it was going to work out happily ever after, only that she had fallen in love.

I too fell in love with someone online... after many months of IM, emails and talking on the phone. Sadly it was I that was the confused one, and couldn't sort out my feelings till much later. I did many things I can't take back... pushed her away.

It started out as friends, we'd joke, lift each others spirits when we were down, talk about anything and everything. I didn't even have a clue what she looked like for a couple months. LOL. And when she did send me a pic... I found her very cute... something I may not have if I hadn't already talked with her and got to know her first.

We didn't profess to be attracted to each other, in fact we each were seeing others at the time. And I think that's why I finally let my heart open to her after sooo long of not letting anyone in. No pressure, no expectations, I got to see her at her best and happy... and when she was really pissed off and hurting. And I found both equally lovely.

Verissa, glad to hear you decided on your own what to believe!

SURE IT CAN HAPPEN. LOVE ISNT ABOUT HOW SOMEONE LOOKS ITS ABOUT THE FIT OF YOUR PERSONALITIES AND WANTS AND NEEDS.

ITS ABOUT THE AFFECTION YOU FEEL FOR SOMEONE NOT THE LOOKS. HOW A PERSON LOOKS IS ONLY A PHYSICAL ATTRACTION

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.
