I agree with henerd10. God is the one who will, eventually, lead you to the right one so even if you haven't found the One yet, that does not mean that you won't and therefore, the only other option is to go somewhere else to find love. I feel that a relationship in person is a whole less complicated and a whole lot more interesting. But that's my opinion. Love on the internet feels more like an experiment to me because you have the chance to pretend to be someone else online. If I met a person online and felt attracted to him, I would be unsure whether or not he would be the same person in real life. In terms of the first date, I would be even more anxious and nervous of going on a date with someone I met online than in person because it would be my first time "meeting" him other than online. I would have to say I would not find online dating a typical way of finding true love, but it is possible.
I believe you can. It's happened to me before. If you don't take it seriously and think it's stupid then no. But if you actually want to be with the person and meet them sooner or later then yes. You'd just have to make sure you talk a lot, talk on the phone, Skype and have as much contact as possible. :)
I don't know about finding love on-line, but the internet certainly facilitates it. I've been with the same girl for three years, and over that time, we've sent over 6000 emails to each other. Those emails have definitely helped our relationship develop.
Yes I have seen many people who have done love marriages they first got their dates with their friends some 2000 kms away! Yes after chatting they come on face book then form face book to SKYPE and then they contact each other personally. Some students who have gone for studies in foreign university they too indulge in on line affairs and go for LOVE AND LOVE MARRIAGE.
