Is it possible to fall in love with someone you have never met?

Absolutely.

You spend enough time with someones personality in any capacity, you can fall in love with them.

The only difference between 2 people who have met in real life opposed to the internet, is you both have had the pleasure of touch to seal the deal.

You can find someone on the net and spend hours...weeks...with them in pm or phone. You can find they move you, bring you to your knees with their words, their spirit their kindness, leaves you breathless and filled with anticipation.

Take 2 people who have met in a bar. They spend the night talking , laughing and dancing. They are getting to know each other. They exchange numbers.. dating begins. They spend quality time with each other thru fun activities.The movies, Taking a walk, A long drive, chatting for hours on end and great sex.

The only difference between these 2 people in real life and the net, is that you both have the luxury of touch to complete the circle.

Dont kid yourself that you cannot spend an incredible amount with someone via the net and phone and not find yourself falling in love. You can. It happens all the time which is why this site and those like it, survive.

Imagine spending all those countless hours in pm and on the phone ...falling love...then you meet. Imagine the love making....phenomenal.

Why? Because you have had the pleasure of falling in love with their personlity. Who they are.

Love can happen in any capacity whether you want it to or not. You may not have been looking for it but poof...here you are.

Dont limit yourself on the avenues you can take to know someone. Getting to know someone can be done in different ways. It is that getting to know someone that initiates love.

Who ever said you had to be physically with someone to fall in love with them?

Yes,be in love if you feel it,give it out to him.Please remember to develop a relationship based on time spent with eachother.Go slow.the truths of the friendship will show itself to you.A relationship has it's own life and dynamic,show up for it and see what happens.

yes, i believe you can, i am kinda goin through the same thing, i have met someone from quite a distance, and she is started to make me feel things i thought i couldn't, my advice is go with it and trust your heart, we have to trust each other in this world, its the only way good things will happen.

good luck!

yes it is possible! and i have experienced this twice in my life, just from a personal long term observation of another person, one can become totally lost in love with that person, but beware of phonies who suck you in for a ride through hell, and always be careful of something that's just what you want it to be or that it seems to be, i have been the victim of deceit before, it hurts long time, do yourself a favor, look closer and objectively before surrendering your heart and soul completely make sure it's real deal!. good luck to you pretty lady, j.c.

OH YES, INDEED...... It Can, And Has Happened To Me... "US", we met on a local telephone chat line, while he was in town, for the weekend. Though, we were not able to meet face to face, for nearly two months. He called everyday and we talked till the phones went dead & would talk every morning after they charged.
We had even said "I LOVE YOU", to each other, prior to his moving here, which was the plan from the very begining.
H O W E V E R........We have just recently broke it off, because, well...... It was what we wanted at the time. He said what I wanted to hear. Sure, after 5 years one gets to know someone pretty well.
Dont get me wrong, I love him like I have "NEVER" loved another. But, he was'nt the man I wanted in the long run. He didnt want to commit, either, though we lived commited lives, (so I thought).
But......... Yes, It can happen.....

listen im one for beliving that anything can happen regardless of what anyone thinks your feelings are yours and if you feel like its love then belive in it people can always give you there reaction and say its no right but they dont know. I had a converstaion with a man on here and i felt like i had never in my life conected with anyone like that ,he made me laugh and he made me feel like a princess and u know even though it was one night and we never meet i will never forget the way he made me feel so if this man makes you feel like that and has stuck around to meet you and makes you feel in love or like you could fall in love then i say follow your heart and belive in how you feel dont worry about what other people think because in the end your all that matters girl so go for it and love him and be proud of it to


a girl hoping you get all you ever wanted from him

Did you know that during WWII that there were organizations that set up letter exchanges for the soldiers away from home...to recieve letters from women they had never met in person. All they had were letters and possibly photo exchange...

I don't know of the actual statistics, but it is a fact that HUNDREDS of couples got to know each other and fell in love via snail mail without actually being together, until they came home and got married...and that was the generation with the least divorce rates, and some of the highest rates reported of marital happiness...go figure...

So can people fall in love through written communication, photo exchange, phone calls...I think I have been changing my mind on this issue. At first I would've said no, but now...

YES YES YES!!!...........I believe that love can and will find you if it is meant to...in the most amazing ways, and when you least expect it...it may take extra communication to establish trust and there may be different things to work out when you can't actually see or touch each other when you want...and a bit frustrating intimately coz computer/phone sex just isn't as good as the real thing... LOL...

Talk to you later tonight 'CJ'...missing you

hello
It is a funny this question came up today ,,,I do not usually look at or respd to the forums but this caught my eye today,,
I have had men here on POF tell me that they have fallen for my picture .. think that they are in love .. something about my eyes yet ..how is that poss when you have not met or even spoken on the phone .. the fantasy never quite meets up to what is reality
while although web site dating seems to be the way of the future ,the build up the expectation that seems to be rampant here will cause even the most fragile of possiblities to fail in the all fire mad dash to meet the one ..

you have to act on blind faith that what you see ( the picture that they post ) and read is the truth and not the what the other thinks that you want to see or read .. we all can be what ever we want or wish for behind the computer screen but when it comes to the meeting of face to face .. tells all that there is to know.

I wish you all the luck in your personal quest for happiness .. be true to who you are and in what you say because in the end ,, that is all that we have in life

I say yes its possible.....but-

You are falling for a partial fantasy augmented by some conversation and pictures.

I talked, and video chatted and to a girl for three months, finally met up with her and found out not everything she said was true and her web cam even had a slimming quality to it (?!).

I tried to get around it but in the end it was more like the fantasy didn't meet up with the reality. She still made for a good friend and someone good to know but as far as a relationship it was not there.

But then again- ya never know. When horses mate, the male tends to get kicked in the head a lot- but he's dumb enough to keep trying.


So here I am- hope springs up eternal. (I love the banana)

well i disagree with optimistichappylady,i am a man of honor and yes i believe you can fall in love with some one you haven't met.and it isn't porn.she is just wrong for that comment. she must watch porn more than men or she wouldn't have made a rude and insensetive comment such as that.

goldberg-not sure what post of mine you are talking about. Did you miss this one?



Yes it can and does happen. I know first hand. You know everyone is so against online dating but think about it. If you live a distance from each other and cannot immediately meet you do what? You talk. You talk probably far more than someone who you would normally date. In depth conversations that give you the time to learn to love the person from the inside, not from the outer shell as you usually would.

The person I am talking about though turned out to be a conartist. I did not find this out until long after we met in person and eventually moved in together. (spent 1 1/2 yrs together)

So though I say yes it can happen, I also caution you to keep your eyes wide open because usually the things that seem too perfect to be true generally are.




I feel sorry for you that you feel the need to judge me....I'm not into porn. I merely replied to a comment posted by another person. Must be you are the porn watcher or you would not have been offended by my attempt at humor.

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.

ITA W/ THAT ONE forty-six and 2
I thought I was going 2 fall 4 someone whom all summer we were suppose 2 meet!
But realized... it's the fantasy of what ur looking 4 that they become when they tell u all the sweet nothings, not saying maybe a few are what U perceive of them?
But I think 90 out of 100% are not...!
CHOW....!

to sweeter than honey - you say "for all those that say that 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."

this is only your own PERCEPTION , your own experiences and your own belief system and values....it is not a total fact, so it would be appreciated if you didn't state your words in that way.

it is indeed possible for some to fall in love with the actual person . from many others' and my own experience.

and i have met him so i know.

Excuse me (Us is the Best)!!!!!
Re Read my thread.... I had copied what another person said his nic is (forty-six and 2 )
and was replying to it not saying it myself....!
And I do beleive it's 10% possible that some ppl if truly HONEST can fall ENLOVE..!
But Facts state it's unlikely in 90% of online dating if u never SAW.. or MET... or even KNOW ...! what the person looks like let alone if their even being honest.....!
But heyyyyy (Us is the Best) hope it works out 4 u and wish u the best!
It's what were all hoping & looking for in someone...!

when quoting another person they have added these neat lilttle things

it is [] with the word quote inside and then to stop you [/word quote]


so then it looks like this and no one gets confused thinking you're saying it yourself


Love is an ongoing battle whether its on here or in person. Generally I'm a cynic when it comes to feelings of any sort..but here I was in love with a man that I hadn't met and only knew from the inside. I don't know what set him apart..perhaps he was a soulmate..I don't believe we have just one. And then I began this and watch it as it grows full of hope and beliefe...I knew I wasn't alone but it is nice to see it has worked out for some bucsgirl..glad to see it's still going great!

From a distance..the world looks blue and green...

From a distance...the ocean needs the stream...

Love? Live or memorex????

If you said his first name...you may get alot of responses!

Someone can be anyone...they want to be online..

I would take precautions..in the matters of the Heart!!

You never know what is hidden behind the masks...of miles...

It might make you feel like.. hopefully it won't end
making you feel like....

Keep a keen eye...for authenticity...always..

OH boy, this question got some people really playing dr. Phil. ok then here is my summation of it. There is truly a line you have to draw between Love and Infactuation of love. LOve is the whole embodiment of the true form of the emotion. Infactuation is merely the thought of the feeling and not always its great impersonator. You can fall in love without seeing somebody but you are only getting the infacuation side of it, not the true form of love. A pic will help with the emotion building as you think and dwell on what it would be like to be with that person but can never substitute for the acual touching them with your hands and feeling their skin against yours. that can not be replaced or even thought of as a representation of real love. just the heart beating for them is not enough to satisfy the soul. So to you Verissa i say only just be careful of your mind and your heart because Love has its sneaky way of getting to you at your weakest moment.At least meet and spend time before declaring True love. Its the safest way for your soul to be on cloud nine.

Verissa,

You can find common interest but to really know the person you need to be in their corner of their world and experience life with them.

Honey your in infatuation which isn't all bad! However, you need to get to know how the person handles all aspects of life.

The good times, bad times, etc..Does He want to make you laugh ? Does He make you smile ? Is He fun to be with ? Is He poilite, kindhearted, sincere, loyal, attentive, Does He also show or feel secure enough to be weak ? Does He realize He can have a bad day ?

There's a lot of life that doesn't get experienced through a phone...and the phone isn't warm and cuddly...and it doesn't leave you room to caress the worries of His day away...
