I Don't Believe In Online Relationships

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 149 People

    I hate to disappoint anyone

    but I'm not going to date anyone online. First reason , it could be dangerous, a lot of perverts out there. Second reason , I want to actually be with someone who I can see in person regularly. You can't cuddle or kiss someone through the internet.

    I just really don't think it can work.

    People don't have patience and they could easily trick and deceive. Half of them walk away,stop talking or get offended when I tell them that I am not looking for an online boyfriend. It's not me who is cold. It's them. I just know what I do and do not want. What's wrong with...

    I just don't. You never know

    who you're talking to and also it's like a long distance relationship. Long distance doesn't work.

    I'm Relocatable And More Likely To Be The Problem That The Person Who Gets Screwed.q

    I don't. really. It's just I have a degree of freedom of ability to wander and like getting to know people online first. Face to face can be difficult. It's just hard to find people who you really get along with. I do not LIE as a matter of policy. I know i can say that but I...

    Sorry, But...

    How can you "love" someone you don't even know? You THINK you know them, but you don't. I thought I liked someone I met on the [adult swim] message boards. He's a nice guy, we talk on the phone, we talk a lot online. But it can't work, because he's too far away. Don't...

    I want to break this cycle of being in online

    relationships and want to have a real, physical relationship for once. I'll join college and other classes soon, so I hope everything will turn out just fine.

    Never Again Will I Trust Everything I Read

    Yes ... by all means ... 99% of the people we meet online seem to be real ... (there's always the 1% that can be identified easily) This is then my oath to myself ... I shall never, ever, ever let myself be fooled into believing everything I read, ever again I will question...

    I used to be here a while ago under a different

    username, and a guy here started talking to me. At first it was really great, we had a lot in common and it was really nice finiding someone similar to me. But only after a few weeks he started thinking that he had a crush on me. That made thing awkward for me, now I can't talk...

    Obviously friendships don't count,

    and neither does harmless flirting or deeply caring about someone, but real relationships can't actually be real until you've seen that person face to face and have touched them and seen them and bonded with them in person.
