    Don't just give some bulls--- answer like, "omg it's nasty". Explain yourself with reasoning, otherwise it's just nonsense. Also, this is a healthy debate, so let's not have any arguing or anything.

    I myself think that online dating is unsafe. You must see me as pretty stupid, considering I've had six online relationships, two of them being on here. But, I am the one who broke up in the end, because my "partner" in each relationship did something to make me feel unsafe and not comfortable to be with them.

    You never know who is behind the computer screen. No matter how much you can protest, you are never 100% sure of who you are talking to because you don't know them in real life. I suppose that it would be okay if you two know each other in real life and just happen to have joined a site together, being started dating beforehand finding the website. But otherwise, nada.

    But let me speak. You know you may "love them", but there's a difference between sexual attraction and deep/light affection. Sexual attraction is the feeling of lust towards your partner, wanting to kiss then or have sexual relations with. Affection is feeling of care for that person, wanting to be their companion and help them be happy. Both are similar, yet so different. It's hard not to get them mixed up. Trust me, I talk from experience.

    I think the only exception is being over the age of 18, really. Because then you know what to do and what not to do. You know what's going on. But even adults sometimes don't even know what they're doing.

    Don't take it personally, sweetheart. It's the guilt of knowing you're doing something wrong that driven me to stop our relationship. Sorry.

    Well, not you doing something wrong, but he doing something wrong, if that bit was confusing.

    Ugh. It was the guilt of me knowing to myself that I was doing something wrong, so I just couldn't handle it. I tried Icee, then was like, "No I can't do this" so I stopped altogether. It's not your fault.

    What I want to know is what if you met the person, were friends with them but wanted something more, and they move far away? If you wanted to date them long-distance, then I believe that should be okay. Since you'd known them before and they simply moved.

    Then yes, that would be understandable, Mo.

    Well, I've been on an Online relationship before and loved him with all my heart. When you truely love someone on the internet it's like.. you want to do anything for them. You want to be there for them whenever they need you. Want to be able to see them whenever you want. But that's not possible. You're right. No matter how honest you are, how much you trust the other person, you don't know if they're real or fake. They could lie about anything. And you're the one who gets hurt, because you trusted them for... no reason actually. I don't regret the relationship I had. I actually like it. And the person. But thinking about it all... I can't trust them anymore. Not as much as I used to. Thinking about the times we've been together, they were beautiful and real to me, still are. But they could just be fake to him. Maybe I was just something that he came to when he was bored, and left when he had enough fun. To be honest.. I forgot the meaning of 'love' after that. It just doesn't seem real to me anymore, Just like how he thought of that whole relationship. I think that being in an online relationship is actually making something beautiful and lovely out of the other person, which they might not be. It's all about your thoughts and what You make out of that person. Sometimes only a look, a smile, a voice tone or a movement can show alot in a real life relationship. But you can't have those in an online one. It's just words, your imaginations and alot of feelings. But you know... Even though I got hurt really bad, I would have done it all over again if I could go back. Because my feelings for the other person were real and strong.

    Gosh, Slytherin, I'd feel really guilty. I know you might feel love for that person, affection and joy, happiness whenever you see them, and your heart skips a beat whenever you talk to them, how do you know that the person is real or not? Ignorance may be bliss, but not in a certain situation like this. If only you can experience that feeling of your chest aching with true love to talk to them one more time, would you take the chance to say hello, and be satisfied? Or would everything seem like a lie?
