      I'm happy right now, I'm one of those guys who met my girl online 7000 miles away from her. Decided to marry her next year, I can't see there's any problems between us so far.

      Not a big fan of them myself anymore but that is because I have tried them and they never worked out for me however I am not against them and I believe that two people can meet whom live thousands of miles away and be the right ones for each other and if they are happy and it works then why not :) you only live once and you should live it to the full.

      Congratulations on your engagement! :D

      I always mistrust things online, dunno why. There's always some risk involved you know. Especially not a relationship, because the person at the other end could be lying.

      That is true Naiwen, it does take alot of trust when it comes to long distance relationships which can be hard but if you can do it, it can prove to be worthwhile :)

      I've done them in the past, none worked out. I wouldn't be against trying again but it'd have to be with the right chick I think. :) But congrats to you dude! Hope you have a great happy life together. :D

      I do not have experience on long distance relationship but I think it will really work. Since I know a lot who had such of relationship and ended as married couples. As long as the love and intention is real, distance will not matter and love like that sees no boundaries.

      I dunno how you can make it ever lasting? The online relationship I mean. For me, a little something would break the couple up.

      I've only had online/long distance relationships and some have ended well, some worse. My latest was also my biggest, longest, and most serious one. It ended terribly, so I doubt I will be dating long distance again due to the experience that came with it for me. Though I don't have any negative thoughts on it, in fact I wrote one of my college term papers on misconceptions and the pros to it.

      I wish you all the best, but once a year would drive me mad if it were me...some things can only be said between 2 people face to face every day rather than such a gap in time.

      OMGoodness....Long distance relationships SUCK. I know this because my husband has either been working on the road or been deployed with the ARMY our whole marriage.
      But somehow we've made it work for 13 years.

      I agree. I have been through a few of them myself and they never seemed to work out. Even the ones where we met in person but I moved to another country, ended up failing in the end. More power to you if it works out. I would love to see two people who marry and stay together that met online. Remember the wedding photos :p

      yep. you'd never know if the person you're with is cheating on you or not. Cannot verify it, cannot know for certain, am i correct?

      I had one long distance relationship and it worked for a long time
      We even planned on getting married but I lost him due to a drunk driver
