Do Internet Relationships Work?

Hi BeingGirl Experts,

I met this amazing guy over the Internet. His name is Bobby and he lives in Georgia, but our relationship is a long distance one because I live in Arizona. He and I have known each other for a few months before we started going out. He seems like "he's the one" for me; we already say, "I love you," to each other, and we want to spend the rest of our lives with each other. He even said he wants to marry me, and I told him I want to, too.

 

The thing is we are only 15 and 16 years old and that we have never met, but it's like we are exactly alike. He may even come and see me later this year. Do you think it's true love and that our relationship will work out well or what?

 

Julie

Julie,

As wonderful as the Internet is, it can be a place for serious trouble. The Internet is a place where many people waste time. There are people who are there to take advantage of you. A relationship on the Internet is not the type of relationship you need to be involved in.

 

If you are involved in a relationship online, are your parents aware of your interests in this person? Your parents need to help you know if you are putting yourself in the way of harm, or if this is a pen pal relationship that you can continue. I would suggest that you should be spending less time on the Internet and moving forward in your community.

 

When you meet someone online there is no way to know if they are a predator or not. Understand that predators hang out in places online where kids and teens hang out. Online a person can be anyone they want to be, and this is a very dangerous truth about the Internet. The Internet is not a place to have a real-life relationship.

 

Get involved in an activity that you enjoy. You'll meet teens that share your interests and you'll have fun. You'll make new friends while you are working towards a common goal. This is the healthy way to meet other teens.

 

Please listen to what we have said about the Internet and your safety,

Your BeingGirl Experts

If you ever wanted to meet someone online, make sure to bring a friend or someone you trust with you, because you might never know what could happen.

Never trust a relationship on the internet, you don't know who the person is. Sometimes he might send you the wrong picture and wrong identity, never trust a guy on the internet especially if he's going to far.

Okay..seriously? NOO they do NOT work. Are you kidding?? It's over the internet, that's not a relationship at all. Relationships are full of so much more than that. I think people are just lonely, no offense and can't show emotions except through the internet #Also consider creeps:O

Girl never trust that sh**! Haven't you ever seen Dateline, or any other news shows?! You can be raped by this "Bobby", or even killed. I would suggest to immediatly STOP talking to this man and never talk to him again. It is very dangerous, and 9 out of 10 times it's a fake account, Bobby may be some 45 year old pervert!

internet you can never trust now these days, i miss the less dangerous old days. my parents relationship started online. then he asked her to marry him and right before the wedding is when he met her. best suggestion is to video chat with this bobby and keep yourself on just microphone.

Don't trust internet relationships. A guy who's 14 (I'm 13) asked me out, and we had a 7 month relationship over the internet. He lived in California, I lived in New Jersey. I truely thought he was the one. He said he wanted to meet me in person. Our first Valentine's day came, and that was the day we broke up, February 14th, 2011. My friend told me that he was secretly in a relationship with another girl. It tore me apart, and it'll be something that's stuck with me for the rest of my life. After the breakup, we fought, and cursed at each other for hours. I learned my lesson not to date over the internet, because you never know what people WILL do to you. Don't ever try online dating, it's just horrifying.

Wow you sound like me , 6 months ago I had an Internet relationship , we skyped heaps and thought we were in love , we even met up once but it wasn't easy and we live on opposite sides of the country. In the end we had to break up , it was just too hard not seeing eachother ! Now in with an amazing guy who I can see all the time (: sometimes getting rid of something will open the door to something so much better walking into your life. Maybe it would work out when your older (: good luck.x
