I belive that netlove can work but you also have to meet the more often the better. I think of love as having two parts compatability and
attraction or chemistry. With netlove you figure out compatability first and then meet to see if there is chemisty. In a normal relationship you figure out the chemistry first and then the compatability. You need both parts. I knew a couple that had great chemistry but got divorced
within a year of marrige. He was a morning person up at 4:30 in the morning even on his off days, she was a night person who didn't want to go to bed before midnight. Both said that sex was great and they loved each other but they couldn't live together.
I was in one real online relationship, It started from one of those internet gaming sites, I always had a girl toon who wanted to play with me, I didnt mind but I didnt really think much of it, I couldnt even be sure it was really a girl. So I just concentrated on the game, she always wanted to get personal though and know more about me, Soon she wanted photos and then wanted phone calls then she wanted webcam chats and finally she wanted to meet up and date. So we did go out for about 6 months but I wouldnt move from my small town and she wouldnt move from the big city. So we broke up. I thought we could stay friends and I guess we still are but I don't here from her much and she didn't return my last email. Which is kind of sad. Might have been better If we had just remained friends. The whole experience was fun I guess though. We traveled across my country all one summer together and that was a blast.
