    yes it is possible. there are folks on this very forum that are in relationships which started online.

    of course it has to evolve to real life beyond just over a screen, which usually doesn't happen when it's some 13 year old kids mc-dating/roleplaying on creative

    One of my relatives met his partner online. They're married with kids in New York.

    Yes.

    I met my ex on this server and the current gf from this server too but we just happened to be added in the same skype group, so I wouldn't call that this server-ish.

    In short, yes it can work out.
    In short, yes it can suck and can be horrible and cannot work out.

    I met @Ezzerland online. It's possible. It takes a lot of work, trust and honesty. I've noticed especially on IJAH that "friends" can interfere and make you question things about your relationship. I've watched this happen to my son and several friends.

    *ETA* We've been together 15 years and have a pretty awesome kid.

    Ye, me and @Saul1337 be going strong for the past (almost) 3 years and now I'm in the Netherlands living with him temporary :)

    But I have met pretty horrible people before and dated them and they have created me traumas that I will take a long time to get over. So in short I wouldn't recommend online dating either unless you both live in the same country.

    Edit: I replied to that before seeing Saul's reply lol

    Yes to the friends part, I had two notorious mc vs rl guys constantly tease me for it which got me a to a point of feeling that it was so strange and uncommon that I wanted to stop the relationship before it ended. But I kept going and ended up having it be cool for a few years.
    Best is to be stubborn like me and just ignore it all, not everyone can do that as easily of course but it's your best choice.


    She calls my house the torture house (2.0) because of the way I live, but she still comes over and sleeps here so...

    I've met mine through here specifically. It works in the ways that some above have mentioned in terms of commitment and persevering, especially if the distances are significant. I've upset some over time and been upset myself. I deeply regret certain things and wish they could heal, but I've enjoyed others, etc. Now I don't feel I'm worthy of anything, I suppose.

    Sometimes while it seems to be going well, things change, too. Trust on both sides usually helps avoid those possibilities.

    In seriousness yeah but not as easy on some platforms. Minecraft and games without picture messages or calling is least likely and something like snap, insta or things like that are more likely. I met my bf on insta.


    At one point there were 8 and 9 year olds lol

    tnx for sharing your experiences! I started chatting here with one pretty girl lately too. We haven't met in person yet (she's from another city) but I'm planning to visit her after Christmas. I think these chats can help to find someone with similar interests, that's convy.

    People can do whatever they want with others online as long as it's legal and ethical. It's really none of my business to dive into the lives of others and judge them like that

    That being said, I think it's very possible to meet that special someone online. I think online dating is something that can be done, but it requires both parties to be ready and willing to take the necessary risks.

    have had some pretty good online relationships, met some of them irl too (but that was after the relationship ended haha)
    i think they're a good learning experience but tbh they're kind of a waste of energy if you're young and don't have the ability to fly out and see one another

    def a good time tho if ur bored lol

    Currently in a relationship that started off online. We still have the distance and especially now is more difficult but considering the circumstances we have both met each other multiple times this year and now it doesn’t really feel like an online relationship anymore.

    It can work, and before this I had my doubts to. I told myself I could never do it again but here I am. I would say if you both like each other, and feel it can work in the long term, give it a shot, otherwise you might regret it later on.
