internet love (10)

1 Name: stunned : 2009-10-06 06:28 ID:UTS+AUqJ

i'm a normal guy.
i have a life, am relatively attractive and do the things most people my age should be doing.
just normal.
i am stuck at a point in my life where itis getting hard to meet new people. I have just started at a new college, and most of the people there just don't interest me. Specifically, there are no attractive girls there who interest me.

The internet is just a tool to meet people. Once you have met them, how the relationship evolves does not differ from other relationships.

I thought about that, but is that normal? I mean, how many people do this sort of thing? I'd feel a bit weird...
We have a shared love of the band Beirut, and they're playing in London next May, I was goin to invite her.
I just can't help but feel like a freak, though. And I don't think I'd feel comfortable in tellin friends and family we met online!

>I don't think I'd feel comfortable in tellin friends and family we met online! i'd rather be a starving african child. honest.

Talk about misplaced arrogance. I hope you get over your stupidity. There's nothing special about meeting on the net. First of all it's more and more common, millions are doing it, and you know what they say about flies and shit... Second, what's so better at meeting mates at school, neighborhood, work, fitness center or in a club? What exactly disturbs you when the relationship happens to start on the net?

i didn't realize it was so common, man. sorry if i offended you or something, I just didn't really know.
and as for your second point, i understood that it was far, FAR more normal to meet people person to person. I mean, I've only just started to realize that it is actually possible to fall in love with somebody because of their words alone.

What irritates me is that people will behave cowardly just for the fear of not "looking good", even when it's about their own happiness. Not to mention the lack of support that it would show to your partner.

Internet isn't a more stupid way to meet people in any form or fashion than, say, blind dating. Seriously, it just puts you people in contact. Of course after that first contact you have to actually move things to the next level, it's keeping it to an "internet relationship" that is stupid.

Meeting on the internet is one thing. Having a relationship that's entirely or in most part online is not healthy. You need to be with the person physically for things to work, unless youre not like most normal human beings.
