This is my "improved" answer to the question that was posed about finding love via the Internet. What follows my answer is the original answer: _______________________________________ "The good old fashioned way of meeting people is still the best method"?? Who says? Statistics for the longevity of any relationship are dismal, even those who meet the "old fashioned" way. The internet is merely another TOOL by which to meet people. It neither helps nor harms the relationship building that must come later if the couple is to succeed. A few things to consider about a relationship that begins on the internet: 1) The initial lack of physical contact puts more emphasis on words, feelings, and communication. Although something to keep in mind is that, just as in "person", what you get in words may not be the true character of the person...but that is true in any relationship. It takes time to get to know the real person. The best thing that you can bring to ANY relationship -- and especially a cyber one is HONESTY. Some people don't mean to out and out lie about themselves, they are just not honest with themselves about who they are and what they want and so they end up disappointed whether in real life relationships or cyber ones. The better you know yourself and the more honestly that you present yourself the better chance you have of finding a lasting relationship in any arena. 2) The transition from "online" or "on phone" to "real life" is a biggy. Even though you feel that the two of you have a great relationship online, you still have to transition to a "real life" relationship and that can be delicate sometimes. Things are always a bit more tricky in the glare of real life than in cyberspace. But it can be successfully done. 3) Sometimes when using the internet, you meet people who live far distances from you. If you decide to pursue a relationship in such a case, the two of you will be faced with the same added geographical challenges that are true for couples who meet any other way but who may experience long distances due to work or family. The added burden of a long distance relationship in the beginning stages of building and strengthening the relationship can be difficult and is something that needs to be faced together. 4) Finally, be prepared for naysayers. The world is full of people (such as the person who answered below) who think in a box. They believe that the only "real" way to meet someone is the way it's always been done. Your friends, coworkers and family members may give you grief if they learn that you've met your new love via the internet. Part of this grief is true concern and rightly given as caution and commonsense are always in good order when getting to know someone in any setting. But part of the comments you will receive will come from people who are sure that how they met someone is exactly how you should do it. Don't allow their influence to color your judgment. This is the 21st century and the internet is just a communication tool that is used in business, family and yes, even personal meeting situations. In conclusion, there is no "right" or "wrong" about meeting someone on the internet. It is up to the two people involved as to whether the relationship will ultimately work. No matter where or how two people meet, it is what comes afterwards and their ability to comprimise, grow together and level of committment to making things work that ultimately determines the success or failure of a relationship. However you meet your love....best of luck. -Jenny. _____________________________________________ . Oh boy, this question is asked so often. Yes, but the percentages are extremely low. The good old fashioned way of meeting people is still the best method. In many cases, especially for the young, they find it easier to talk over MSN or by email rather than to actually work at meeting someone in the flesh and having to go through the natural form of meeting someone. By not getting out there and getting those butterflies in one's stomach on a first date, or experiencing that first kiss with someone you care about, you are robbing yourself of a lot of great memories you could carry through life. The eyes tell a lot about a person as does body language and that's just something you don't get over the internet. Get out and start dating! I believe if an adult is lonely, doesn't know where to meet someone, then it makes more sense to scout around and find a well qualified dating service to meet someone special. Internet is dangerous, you never really know who you are talking too and the old fashioned way of meeting people is still the best. Good luck Marcy

It's extremely hard to find true love, so most love won't be. When you do find true love, you'll know it in your heart and soul. Consider yourself very lucky if you do!

If true love should find you, you will know what to do. I'm not sure what your question is but in my opinion if you search for true love you will not find it. It happens when you least expect it.

true love is more serious than real love true love is more serious than real love Answer I agree. A true love is definitely real love but it is on a higher level of love. A love that just happens, a strong love, unwaivering love, unselfish love, a love you can feel through and through, a love above all others, a love that never leaves you even if the person does.
