  • I don't believe in that. It's too scary nowadays. But that's just me.

  • I actually met my husband online. We emailed and got to know each other for 3 months before we actually met, and then (he lived a couple hours away) we wrote and spoke on the phone for another 3 months before we went on our first date. 9 years later, we've now been married for 7 years this month and have two beautiful little girls.

    I believe that Internet relationships can be real, though times have changed. There are a lot more people using online, so you have to be careful, but there's no reason you can't have a real relationship online.

  • I've been with my Cyber-husband for 12 yrs. Never met him in real life but he's as real to me as if we lived together except I don't have to cook, clean or pick up his dirty underwear! Woo Hoo! I love that kind of marriage!

  • I met a very very good friend on a Christian website. She came and visited my family for a few days and I did the same back in April. I totally think it is possible.

  • i'm not sure what you mean by relationship but some of my best friends live in the net and i feel really close to them. i think its real.we email and chat on the phone and one day we'll meet, but its nto that important. what's important is them being there.
