PDA

I am curious if it is possible to have only met someone through an online chat room, see only one picture, exchange words, then phone numbers and to fall in love with that person having never met them?

Such is the situation I am currently confronted with. If you don't hear much from me, or less than I already get on here, it's because I have spent hours IMing, and talking with this person on the phone. Did I mention she lives on the East coast, and I live near Chicago? Am I crazy? Have I been out of touch with the real (dating) world for that long?

:love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love:

Yes, it is possible. But like any "affair," remember that you are only seeing the best of what she wants to show you as you most likely are doing with her. Like any relationship, you are probably in the initial stages where the attention you're getting is very attractive. When you do finally meet, it will be stage 2 with another "meeting" period as you discover new things about one another. Only after that, can you know if this attraction and love will last.

My advice (if you care)? Life is short so embrace your feelings wholeheartedly, but also proceed cautiously, if only to protect your own heart in case she doesn't share your feelings. But don't waste too much time wondering...life is short and tonight is one less that you'll have to spend with her if she is the one. You'll never ever get this time back......

I'm not feeling it Frett, the situation you described seems a bit odd to me. If you met this woman online and met up in person several times and THEN started with these questions, I think it could be legit.

But having no personal meeting yet? I can't see it, I think there's way too much room for someone to project his or her fantasy onto the un-met person, if that makes any sense? :D

Is it possible....yes. I actually met my wife online, but we met in person after a few months of talking and 6 years later we are still together.

After swearing I'd never date anyone I met online, I met my wife on the net shortly after I moved to California. We've been together almost as long as KH and SweetRain. I would have to say you need to meet her before you conclude you're in love, though, since it sounds more like infatuation at this point from what you've told us.

Generally it's tough to find on the internet, it's too easy to let your imagination and expectations do all the real connecting.

Let me spin a yarn for you, back in 1997 when the web was fairly new and I was only talking on the net about Babylon 5 - on the official B5 Warner Bros website live chatroom, specifically - there was a good number of regulars, we all were pals and hung out and talked about B5 and Star Wars and Trek and life and whatnot, and there was the occasional attempt by a female chat-er to get web-intimate, I didn't go in for that sort of thing but I got approached a lot and I knew a lot of the others did too, some actually took them up on it and either cybered or made web-relationships or whatever. Two of them made a "love connection" though, they were adults (I believe at least in their mid-20s) and had what they felt was a real loving relationship brewing between them. After a short while, weeks or maybe months, she ended up moving in with him (moving a thousand miles away from where she lived, mind you) and they spent a couple weeks together. Then, one day, he answered the phone and it was her husband. He spoke to her husband and her mother, and learned that she was mentally ill and occasionally would have an episode where she'd forget she had a husband and kids and a life, eventually she'd snap back to reality and confusion and heartache would ensue - she was being medically treated for this even. Her mother soon came to pick her up, and he was an emotional wreck for quite a while.

Here's my advice: have fun with it if you want (and think you can keep it in check), but don't expect anything real out of it, don't let it take the place of real human interaction, and be very very careful.

That's creepy about that guy and the crazy woman though, he's lucky he didn't end up with a slit throat or something. :(

A good friend of mine met her husband online, and he's become a good friend, too. They have two boys, and another on the way, over a 5-6+ year marriage. So that's a good example. JediTricks's creepy one is something he simply made up, like his "Babylon S" show (c'mon, JT, at least come up with a believable name... :p), so ignore it.

but seriously, I'd use ol' Ben's comment: "we must be cautious." (hopefully not the "scum and villany" one :D ).

I think it's possible to fall in love via the Internet just like I think it's possible to fall in love with a Pen Pal. But it's also very possible to quickly fall out of love as soon as you meet said person in the flesh.

Having said that, I think it's easier for women to fall in love sight-unseen than for guys. I've seen attractive women with rather ugly dudes, but rarely the reverse. Which tells me that among other things, women are more likely to fall in love with someone based on their personality, their words, their sense of humor--in other words, things you don't have to 100% be there to experience. Guys are more superficial.

So sure, you could fall in love, but I wouldn't necessarily count on staying in love when you meet someone. It's too easy to pull a snow job on someone via the net.

bobafrett
08-14-2006, 09:48 PM
Well, I got to talk with her over the weekend. We would spend hours on the phone chatting. I don't have the job, the finances, nor the ability to go meet her in person. She told me she loves me, but you are right, we only show our "good" sides when we initially enter a relationship. I haven't had a temper tantrum, or complained about work or said I'd rather spend my money on Star Wars figures than buying a dinner.

I'm going to take it slowly, and if things work out, great, if not, oh well. I'm just afraid that I might fall in love, and end up broken hearted, because I have been without love for so long now.

My sister did meet her husband on the internet. He lived in Texas, and she lived in Minnesota. She flew down and met him, he flew up to see her, next thing I know tey got married at the "Mall of America" in Minneapolis. Now they live in New Hampshire, and are raising 5 kids. Who da figured?

Not sure I agree with that, I seem to have observed the opposite...how often do you see fat women with decent looking guys vs. seeing fat dudes with decent looking women? Regarding the Fat Factor, I see a disproportionate amount of men settling for big'uns vs. woman doing the same.

I'll have to think more about this but my initial reaction is to disagree based on my perceptions which seem to differ from yours. I'll think about it some more. :)

08-15-2006, 11:48 PM
Both men and women are shallow,but I really think men get a bad rap for it. As Cae observed,I have also seen a lot of men with chunky girls,while I'm hard pressed to find a semi-attractive woman with a guy of similar proportion.

Human nature to look at the good ones?Sure,but you guys just dont hide it well,you cant turn your head and totally look. ;-) Maybe thats where the shallow part comes into play? I'd have to say both men and women are equal on it as a whole

08-16-2006, 10:33 AM
Maybe it's regional, cause man, around here in L.A., I see a lot of pretty girls with Cro-Magnon looking dudes. This particularly seems to be the case when it comes to gang member types. I grew up in the Eastside and I can't tell you how many times I've seen nice, pretty looking girls with ugly looking dudes with Raider jerseys.

I've seen some average to average ugly looking to nondescript guys with ugly women, but I have never seen a truly good looking dude with an ugly woman. Never. But I'm sure what you guys say is true. It's all in the eye of the beholder.

I think lust and infatuation and wishful thinking are what you get from online relationships. without meeting a person it's all just simple fantasy. the feelings might appear real but unless you meet a person and interact with them and see their eyes and body language, until you get close enough to tell if they're chemically attractive and matched to you, it's never going to be real love.
Attraction and stimulation and common ground are only the base level, you can't know anything else until you've hung around with someone for a while.

however, interweb worldwide net crap can build a very strong base level that a relationship can grow upon. I was talking to someone online for 18 months before meeting them and within a couple of days og hanging around stuff together knew that it was feeling like love. before hat it'd been lust or just damn cool but once the feelings appeared I knew it was right and I've been having a long distance relationship with the person ever since. working excellently I must say. I just got back from a long weekend break with my lover and it just keeps geting better and better. sometime next year my lover is moving up here to be nearer. we're just taking it easy and slowly, making sure it's really the right thing to do and not rushing into decisions too fast and then fudging it all up.

slowly slowly catchy monkey as some say - apparently...

I've never been in an online relationship but I'm open for anything. I forsee many of them in my future come the beginning of the year and I'll keep an open mind because you truly never know what's gonna happen.

Um, well, she called and said she was going to the store to get a gallon of milk, but the store she was going too was closer to my house then her own. I offered to come meet her at the store to get a goodnight kiss, and somehow several hours later and a tour of my house, we ended up getting the milk, and my hair went from neat to messy. I'd say it was a successful quest!

If that is what you meant by quest.

The sad thing is, I'm thinking, to myself "Lets see, nice dinner and a movie will cost me X number of Star Wars figures". But she seems to like me, and we have plans for tomoorrow night. So far I've only bought her one McDonalds coffee, and been shown more affection than I could imagine.

Frett, as I've separated myself from the collecting addiction over the last several years, I'm finding that I enjoy spending money on activities far more than I do on "stuff" if that makes sense? :confused:

For instance, I don't mind overpaying for a meal from time to time if I'm enjoying it with friends and the comraderie that comes with it...kind of like going out to the movies. Yes the prices are outrageous when compared to a rental price or some piece of Star Wars merch I could buy, but it's the experience that I savor. So whereas it would be a rare thing for me to drop ten bucks on some SW figs, I don't hesitate to drop it at the cinema. If you enjoy spending time with this lady, then go for it and enjoy that over some collectibles. I'm not saying you would be wrong to choose collecting over a date, that's totally up to you, I'm just saying that if you are hesitant, give it a try and see what's more important to you.

Of course, don't let her walk over you and take whatever she can get in terms of comped meals, there is a certain give and take when it comes to fun nights out vs financially responsibilities.

Anyway what were we talking about ? lol lol lol

Seriously though, good luck and I hope it works out well for you. :)

I'd say yes to the walk or bowling and no to a movie for the simple fact it's hard to talk and get to know someone in a theater (besides, you'd really tick everyone off of you did!).

We went to eat at a nice pizzeria that was in an old firehouse. Afterwards we were less than two blocks from the riverwalk, and we spent an hour + walking along the river, listening to live music eminating from certain bars, they had a live band, and it sounded like an original band from the 70's playing their hits, but I couldn't remember the name.

Okay, so today I'm at lunch, and she calls like she always does. We chatted, then out of the blue she says, " I hope you won't be to tired to talk tonight" and I said "Is it good or bad?" and she says it depends on how I look at it. After we hung up, she calls back about 10 minutes later and tells me she won't be coming over tonight, and she says she doesn't feel like talking. I say to her "Why, are you going to dump me?" and she responds, "No, I think you are looking to dump me."

After talking with her I reassured her that I wasn't planning on dumping her. I think she might just be insecure about the relationship. Anyways, I am writing from my work as I am pretty sure she will be over after I get off here tonight at 10.

I think I was happier when I was single.

Ah ha! Now is the time to strike, she thinks she is safe, show the enemy no mercy, dump her, then when she's at her most vulnerable, get back together with her just so you can dump her again!!!! Bwa ha ha!!!

Nah, I think I'll keep her. She washed my sheets and comforter yesterday, made my bed, washed the dishes, made dinner (I made the salads), and reminded me that my son had requested sloppy joes for dinner when we went grocery shopping. The night before she took me out to a bar where we watched a Journey tribute band. They also did covers for other bands, and they sounded pretty good! Today she took two CD's that I needed to have returned to the BMG music club, and mailed them for me.

Maids are cheaper than dates if you have them come by once a week. ;) Plus, maids don't make you go see Journey tribute bands. :D

Well, today I spent the day ironing the curtains, and putting them up. You will see my "before and after" window pictures, as well as me doing the ironing, which by the way, I managed to somehow burn a hole in one of the panels.

Ditto, I didn't know you even could iron shears (sheers??)

And Frett- notice the Iron sitting there on the board whilst you are posing for the 3rd pic?? THAT would likely be how you burned the hole in them, and would also likely be possibly the exact moment of the incident ;)

EDIT okay, good thing JediElf is here with me- on closer inspection, what I thought was the Iron is infact not, and you are holding it in yer left hand :D


But I still think that your vamping for the camera got them burned, the damn things are a single strand of flammable stuff thick, I can burn them with my eyes and I'm nearsighted

I think you are right about that. I was posing for the camera, the picture you see is after I had burned them, so I just tried to get a picture of me in ironing action before cleaning the melted strands off the iron.

No, but she is assigning me stuff to do. She also wants me to move the vioce changing Vader helmet off the love seat, but so far I haven't even touched his Sithiness's head gear.

Okay, I just went out and did Christmas present shopping for my woman. I bought her three items. What I would like to know is, how much would you spend on someone whom you've known three months? Take into consideration, she has spent all but a few nights here, and has keys to my place. I know sometimes people have known each other for 3 months but haven't even kissed yet. I just want to see if maybe I spent the right amount on her.

InsaneJediGirl
12-22-2006, 12:33 AM
I'd say $75-150 easily if I actually liked them enough. Higher than that if something was going on longer, but three months is kind of a short amount of time.

bobafrett
12-22-2006, 01:03 AM
That's about what I spent, but I can't say what I got her though, even knowing that she has little computer know how.

She'd better come out of the house and see a Lexus in the driveway with a red bow on it, or you're in trouble.

:p

(Honestly, though, $75-$150 sounds good.)

Kidhuman
12-23-2006, 12:55 PM
I would have spent nothing on her. Tell her you are her present, iff she dont like it, theres the door.


Nah Frett, sounds like youre in the ballpark, remember, its the thought that counts.

I'm terrible with gift giving, so I guess I'm lucky I don't have to worry about that. As far as being able to find love on the internet, I'm sure it's possible. However, I've tried several dating sites and the matches rarely interest me. Apparently, something in my personality profile says I'm interested in liberals who are passionate about animals, as that is what most of the matches seem to be.

I ended up picking her up some Christmas movies for another $40.00. We just got back from exchanging gifts with her family, and I was given socks (from Santa) which I needed, and a Bears NFC Central division Champs t-shirt!

bobafrett
12-25-2006, 01:14 PM
Okay, now that we have exchanged gifts I can tell you I got her the following:

Very Sexy body spray

Very Sexy body wash

6 pack of Christmas movies

Holidaze the Christmas that almost didn't happen movie

A personalized Christmas Ornament

A crystal rotary light show base for....

....a crystal Angel that glows sitting atop the base

A Christmas music CD

She seemed to be pleased with the gifts as she turned all affectionate (sp?) after we opened our gifts. It was nice to get some gifts too. My son is down in Florida seeing his mom for the holiday, and my immediate family lives up North about 6 hours, so I couldn't get up to see them this year. At least I had Robin here to keep me company this Christmas. She is spending time giving gifts to her kids right now.

A little update, which I mentioned a breif blurb about, but yesterday I helped my girlfriend pack up her apartment to move in here with me. We spent about 5 hours loading and unloading all the bog furniture, and as much of the smaller items as we could into a 14 foot u-haul. After I got off of work last night, we returned to get the remaining items which fit into the back of my car. I left to unpack my Durango, while she returned to clean the apartment. At about 1 am, I was getting concerned that she might have fallen asleep or something. I got over there just after she had got to her car. We were both very tired, and so far I have only seen her briefly this morning before I headed off to work. We shall see what happens when two people start living in the "Real World".

Yes, but it's the 2nd and I still haven't seen her first months rent yet. I'm not going to get upset just yet as we just moved her in the other day.

She doesn't have much, at least worth putting up amongst my collection. I have found little knick knacks here and there. We still need a day where both of us can work on getting solutions to the very tight quarters. I can't think of where I would move my collectibles to. The only places are the basement, which is heated, but shared with the upstairs tenant, the garage, which is not insulated, and left to the climate and spider critters, or the front porch which is unheated, and has the ever present fading sun rays. I could get a heated storage facility.

I've drilled a hole into rubbermaid totes(the lid and the handle from the top) then stuck locks into the holes. That could solve your problems and be able to keep the stuff in the basement, but then you have to worry about others swiping the entire tote:whip:
