Nothing more than just being friends. Especially when I played CS back in the day, I knew alot of regulars to a group of servers.

I'm currently in one right now...long distance, too. Although I'd definitely prefer to be one in person, I simply have no luck finding a girl I'd remotely consider being in a serious relationship with around where I live (casual dating or flings, on the other hand, is a different story).

I'm in one, and I'm very happy with it. The next thing to do is to move to Canada, half the length of the world away...

Unless you're close by, it's not going to work. And even if you're that one single exception where it does work, it's still going to fail soon sometime down the road.

Someone here must've been quite a charmer to be able to test out all possible online relationships with every single female out there and confirm the failure rate to be 100% for every one of them.

Hmmm, my online "relations" never got past having a couple of good friends,mostly sharing common interests. But having a real internet relationship ? Nope, and I doubt it is even possible, you can make a couple good friends on the net, but to start up a real relationship you'd have to meet each other and see how things turn out in the real world.
But those that have a real internet relationship, I wish the best of luck

I met my wife over the internet. Kind of scary, huh? We posted at the same forum for years, and I couldn't fucking stand her. Somehow we started liking eachother's company, and before you know it, I'm in the Philippines living with her family. Now before you say anything, she's British, not one of those mail in bride sorts. We've been together for 4 years now. Most amazing person I've ever known.

It works if you've both got a decent head attached to your necks.

Without physical contact (not necesarily sex) of some sort in a more-than-friends relationship, the human mind tends to get a bit wacky. It's just simple fact that the human mind needs it to fill that empty hole and to be comforted. Online-relationships work as a temporary replacement or a supplement to fighting lonliness but it'll never be enough able to completely satisfy it. You can proclaim your love all you want over AIM and type as many *hugs* as you physically can but it'll never be beat just holding the one you like while watching a movie (or whatever). Humans need touch.

Doing that weird form of dating just sends you further down the social disaster spiral. What's worse is that since you really don't *know* the person and their "real-life" mannerisms, you start filling in the holes of their personality with how you think they should act. Basically creating a false illusion of that person only to be disappointed if a meeting ever does occur. While I'm not against meeting people online, meeting in person should happen at least somewhat soon.

Basically, they never work out. And if anyone decides to fight me on this, yeah, right, you definately are the exception. I'm just sure you'll be able to be the one ultra-rare to actually get married and live your entire lives together. Right after you hit the lottery two times in a row, right?

Online relationships mean the same as "virtual interaction", which is just a pile of phooey. Only horny, male teenagers seem to populate this area.

I'm of the opinion that online relationships are for the socially inept who spend all day online.

But then, you're entitled to disagree with this fact.

Well, 9 years, 3 months later...Yea, I think I can easily fight this one....Everyone deals with relationships in their own way.
