1

Have a Plan to Meet

The thing about being in online relationships is that you've got to have a plan to meet. Truthfully girls, it should be within months, not years of the relationship or at least of talking. It took me about a year to actually meet my girlfriend and that was way too long. Meet within months, especially if they live close!

2

Be Honest

Always, when you start talking to someone, you want to be upfront and honest, especially online. Jumping into an online relationship is difficult enough, but if your partner can't trust what you are saying or if you get caught in a lie? That's awful! It's a horrible feeling.

3

Research Everything Your Partner Says

Okay, so you've been talking to someone for a while now right? Have you looked up anything that they'd said? Have you tried to drag and drop their picture into Google images? These are all things that Nev does as soon as he shows up at someones house and it's amazing what these little tricks can reveal!

4

Look up Things That Seem off-the-Wall

Does your partner own a million cars, is a model in some high end magazines and is always in commercials? Do you believe that for real? These are things that you need to look up girls and don't be duped by him. Just because he says he's the hottest DJ out there, doesn't mean that you have to believe him.

5

Don't Let the Online Relationship Go Too Long

One thing that I've learned when I was in an online relationship is to not let it go on too long. Truthfully, it shouldn't last a year – it should be kept to about six months or maybe a little more, that way you can really get to know the person that you are talking to – if they are telling the truth. This is sound advice girls, don't get wrapped up in an online relationship for years and years!

6

Discuss the Future

Always, as in any relationship, you want to talk about the future. If you live in separate states, is one of you going to move? Would you want to be the one to move? Are you going to find a new place together? Are there plans for marriage? These are all things to think about!

7

Know Your Feelings for the Person

Before you meet anyone from online, you've got to know exactly what feelings you have for the person. This means that if you are saying you are in love, you better actually be in love – no matter what they look like or who they are. Remember, you fell in love with them before you met them. That's powerful!

8

Come Clean with Any Lies

Finally, before you meet with the person that you are with, come clean with any lies that you've told. Are you shorter or stockier than you are in your pictures? Just let them know, show them a real picture, let them really see who you are before you meet them.

Online relationships are not bad, in fact, I think that they are pretty amazing, but you've got to be careful. Being in an online relationship is riskier than being in a relationship with someone 'real'. So, have you girls ever been in an online relationship? Share!

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

hello. I ve been wondering something. I am relationship with a guy for 3 months. we talked on the phone at least once in two weeks. however he doesnt answer my messages on time he always text back after few hours or more. I think that he is not interested in me anymore but he says he has university exams and wants me to wait untill the exam. Do you think that ı should wait for him or studying is just an excuse?

And the main problem is that he lives in Paris, France and I live in Utah

by the way we live in a different countries. We planned to meet in his country

6 years, I came across the world, and after the very first nite he just desappeared

So I'm in an online relationship for almost 6 months, on Feb. 14 it will be our 6 months together and we send each other gifts, he is always constantly talking to me, and giving me compliments, and talking about our future together❤... Well I read your one that said something like dont be in it for no more than a year
