    Quick question. Have you ever been in one? Would you ever get in one? If you have already, would you do it again? If no to all of that, why not? Share your thoughts here.

    I was in 2!
    The first was good, and we even got engaged. But we were both having problems eventually so we had to break it off. We're still friends.

    The second not so much. She didn't really seem to care about my problems yet dumped all of hers on me. Then she cheated on me and forced me into a poly relationship so it wouldn't be cheating, then left me for the other person. Now she's trying to talk to me again since she's single again and i'm just like nope.
    She had gaslighted me for the longest time so I didn't realize that what she did was wrong until others informed me.

    I've never been in an online relationship, but I have made a wide variety of friends online that I still talk to a lot these days. I think its good to have some sort of a balance between IRL and Online relationships. For example, its great to be out and just being with family and friends, but sometimes doing it too much could be stressful. When it comes to IRL friends, you can just be yourself and you get to make friends based on your personality and not your social stature. However, emphasizing too much on online buds could be unhealthy as well if done without moderation, so its better to get the best of both worlds, but that's just my opinion. I think when it comes to special things such as relationships that people just commit to things they feel comfortable with. I've gone on a lot of dates with my friends that are guys, but I don't date any of them. I just go on dates for the experience and to get to know them better while enabling them to know myself some more as well. The primary reason I haven't gone on a date with anyone online is because it is mainly just too complicated and has a more difficult time to work out. All in all, I think that if you just stick to your heart, you can tell whether or not you are ready for an IRL or online relationship.

    I was in a few when I was a lonely teenager. One of them was just pure hell. The other two didn't feel at all complete. I've noticed that online dating isn't near as common as it used to be. The only way I'd online date again is if the person was within say, a 100 mile radius. I'd also like to meet them in person a couple times before we would ever consider it "dating".

    No i haven't
    Cause in relationship i need the physical contact you know.
    I can create strong bonds with internet people, but for love to spark, i need the touch, smell and taste.

    I'm the same as YouHoney. Part of a relationship to me is being able to have physical contact, so I've stayed away from online relationships.

    I've been in a couple but they didn't last particularly long. I enjoyed being in them though, since there was someone there to help me through things and and vice versa. It was nice knowing I could be special to someone even without being able to touch them or see them in person regularly.
    Generally I've found it easier to bond with people online.

    I've never been in an online relationship, and I don't know if I would. If I found someone I really connected with, though- hey, why not! I see no problem with it, as long as both parties are honest with each other. It can be really easy to make a fake persona over the internet, so I would be rather wary about getting into an online relationship unless I knew the person very well beforehand.

    I've never been in an online relationship, and I'm not to sure that I want to. There's just something about a physical connection that makes all the difference. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't last too long in an online relationship because there's too many things that can happen irl that would more than likely irritate me if I was in an online relationship.

    Never shall I be in one! It's wrong to have a relationship with little to no physical contact with a person if you ask me. I'd much rather be able to see the person for real, rather than behind a computer, because who knows if the person is who they say they are behind the screen?

    I've been in two, and while the second one was honestly a mistake, my first one was and still is to this date not a mistake in any way, even despite how many times it was on and off. There's been a lot of good and bad times in my current online relationship over the years, this being the third time I've had the privilege of being together with this wonderful young woman, and just like all those times before I wouldn't trade her for anything. It isn't easy, and I can sort of agree with everyone before me who said the physical contact thing is needed. Yes, sort of, because after all life is only getting harder and harder...it's hard to find good people around you and overall while physical contact is a very important thing, it's not everything.

    It'll need to be a thing at some point, whenever possible, but it's said that distance is a test of love. Many will fail, but for those who do not, the only answer can be True Love. It's certainly not for everybody, but while my own ongoing online relationship has had a somewhat bumpy road, even little over three years later we managed to find our way back to each other time and time again. The feelings we've shared all this time have never died either, we've know each other for little over three years now and even after everything we've gone through, both together and apart, we can act like best friends and lovers at the same time no problem.

    I'm very happy about that, we're both worried about what the future may hold for us naturally, but based on everything up until now I know that we were meant to be. Yeah, we're perfect for each other in many ways and will continue to do our best to help each other before living together in person can be a reality, we'll fight for that dream as much as we have to. I know others who've been in online relationships that eventually bloomed into something magnificent as well, so to anybody out there who may be involved in such a thing, I wish you the best of luck. For those who'd rather stay away due to past experience or lack of interest, that's fine too, good luck with your own relationship goals.

    I don't think I've been in an online relationship... unless you count being friends with RedG and Gengar. I don't think online relationships is always a good idea... so I don't think I'll ever have one.

    Well, if husbando and waifu count, that makes one.
    But I've never dated online, and probably never will after this.

    I've never been in a romantic relationship IRL or online. I honestly don't know how I feel about it. On one hand, I'll take what I can get, but on the other hand. I can't hug someone over the internet.

    I did once, I'm not sure if I'd ever do it again.

    We knew each other about five years before we got together, and ended up dating about a year. He left me so I could "have better". We still tried to stay friends afterwards but he got jealous once I got into another relationship months later, so we stopped talking. In February 2011, he contacted me again because he had been in a horrible wreck and lost his memories. We stayed up talking that whole night, and talked maybe a week after that, until he said he was moving to another family member's house and then he was dropping everything in his past, including me.

    I was already engaged at this point, and of course had no power to do anything anyways as he blocked me on FaceBook and he wouldn't answer my calls or text.

    I'd prefer a physical relationship, but I've come close to a few. I wouldn't mind it, honestly. If it happens, it does. My best friend lives in North Carolina. Does that count?
