Online love

Recommended Posts

James121

It’s becoming increasingly popular for someone to find that ‘special one’ online these days and sometimes the relationships remain limited to online.

Does anyone think you can genuinely have a meaningful relationship with someone online or do you think it’s a bit false?

Ive always believed that love has to be very personal so I’m not convinced by it.

I believe it is very possible and is okay, it's not like you message someone online and you are married. You meet up with the person, you talk and you treat them like you would if you met someone at school/work. It is up to the people to make it meaningful or if all parties want a hookup.

Yes. As one with AvPD, starting out online, is really almost the only way for me to begin relationships at all.

Yes, it is possible. It happened to me. However, I knew from the start that we wouldn't meet, and I was relieved with it.

 

If I met with the person I liked, the romantic attraction would fade instantly. I have never felt romantic attraction to people in real life, only for fictional characters. The moment I saw the person in the photo, I couldn't feel a thing even if I was feeling romantic feelings by reading the texts.

 

I like the texts but not real life interaction, as if the person in the other end was a character (it was consensual so no problem in the two ends). It's kind of like roleplay, but I still like the person as a friend on the other end.

 

However, the other person started to feel romantic feelings for the real me at some point. I evaded the person from that point onwards.

 

That's just how it works for me. Sorry if it is difficult to understand.

I would not spend my entire life in an online-only relationship. Way too painful. Can you meet someone that way and develop a deep, loving, honest and very genuine connection? Hell yeah. Been there, done that.

Mhmm yea, sure I'd love to... But, I really somehow, need to feel comfortable to go and see them. This can take weeks/months. And I don't want to come over as pushy either.

I think there is a chance to find people on the internet you want to meet in reel live and maybe after some time you want to meet and start a serious relationship with, but most online dating sites are not suitable for asexual relationships. I used many different online dating sites and the most likely outcome is that you receive naked pictures of the woman you are talking to before you can meet in real live. so I recently gave up online dating entirely. but the fact that it doesn't work for my does not say that it doesn't work for you.

I know two aces who met online and developed their relationship that way. They live together now though.

I think Phoenix the II has pretty much covered what my approach would be like...
Meeting people is nerve wracking...

Yeah, long distance dating is not for you if that's a problem.

The meetups themselves after that, even after texting for months are, so much anxieties.

Send me that dickpic first, so I can get it rated on the interwebs first. 😂

I have nothing to add on this matter other than I love everything about AVEN today. Except James.

Speaking as someone who's never been in any sort of romantic relationship, online or offline, but who has developed some very meaningful people via the Internet (including perhaps my closest friend, whom I unfortunately have yet to meet in the flesh due to geographical constraints/living on different continents)...

 

Certainly, I'd say it's possible. True, I agree that love is a "very personal" thing—but I'm inclined to disagree with the commonly held idea that online relationships (using the word broadly here, rather than to refer exclusively to romance/"that special one") are inherently less "personal" or "real" than ones forged in face-to-face settings.

 

There are, of course, risks of safety/genuity that are somewhat unique to online settings, so (from my utter inexperience; feel free to ignore me :P) I'd say to proceed with caution, but then the same really goes for "IRL" relationships, albeit in different ways. That doesn't invalidate the potential of a long-distance relationship to be deep and meaningful, though. Some online relationships are undoubtedly "false", but that doesn't mean they are all. Friendships and romantic relationships alike.

Give me three and a half seconds. I need to find one online to claim as my own.

It’s like that constant denial which is intended to convince one’s self. True love.

This reminds me of @Snao Cone's favourite (probably now-defunct?) Tumblr. :lol:

Ask literally any girl, she'll have at least one she's saving for blackmail that she can lend to you.

Sorry dude, my heart's very much taken. Go be desperate somewhere else.

Yeah, critiquemydickpic.tumblr.com is no longer :(

 

There was some real art there, and it got filtered through someone else so I didn't have to interact with anyone or get bombarded directly.

Right? It's hard enough just talking to people in the first place...
The rest is a miracle XP
