    I don't even think it's possible, let alone normal. I think the only reason you might think you're in love with someone on the net is because you're so glad that somebody actually wants to talk to you for once - in which case you REALLY need to get out more.

    Whats to say you're not talking to an acne-ridden 9 year old, or a dirty person aged 82?! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/rolleyes.gif"&gt;

    I think thats a bit harsh. I think its possible to have feelings for someone, not nessesaraly love but never the less. As for it being normal or not.....Well what is "NORMAL"? I dont think there is a normal or not normal just maybe different!

    I met my ex off the net, and didn't meet him for over 5 months, and by that time i was def. in love with him.
    Anyway there's no such thing as 'normal'

    I think it is possible to fall in love with someone over the net. My mom met my stepdad on the internet, and they've been together for over 5 years now.

    I think there will always be the risk that you're talking to an 8 year old or an 80 year old, but you can normally tell when someone's lying about their life fairly early on in the "relationship".

    I think you can get a lot closer in some ways to people you meet over the net. There are some things I say to people on MSN messenger which I could never say in real life, but the fact I'm just on a computer rather than talking to someone means I'm less nervous. So from that perspective you can actually make far stronger bonds with internet people.

    ok, people, thx. just one thing: talking to strangers over the net doesn't means that u can't date/go out/have friends/so on in the real life. it's just something else. maybe u feel more free. I had the chance to meet some people i've been chating with,and they were all ok. no 8 or 80, and no freaks.

    My point is if u can fall in love with someone on the net without seeing him/her at all.

    My mate is trying to meet a girl he met online. He's 18, she's 17, and although they like each other it still seems a bit weird. I'm sure it's fine, but they're surely gonna have some difficulties trying to meet (London/Sheffield vs Leeds!)

    I think you can fall in love over the net. And it doesn't mean you don't know enough people in everyday life at all, it's just extra people! I think that was unfair about it being the only people who will talk to you whoever said that cos it's really, not, true.

    The person I have a sort of thing with now, I met on the internet. Although it's mostly in 'real life' that we see each other at the moment (he lives at the end of my road now!) and most of the stuff I've done has been in person, to begin with it was just like- ICQ and email type thing. It took meeting him to realise what I felt for him, but I think it all came about over the internet.
