I've had feelings for someone I spoke to online. I've liked him for over two years. However, I know the feelings aren't necessarily genuine because I haven't met him.

I think you can become infatuated with an idea of someone over the Internet. The feelings can seem very real. However, I don't believe that the feelings are actually real. It's an illusion.

Relationships online can be like real life relationships- the only thing lacking would be the actual physical presence. So if you mean can we develop meaningful relationships online- definitely yes.

There are ways people can make things up online- and you may take a while longer to get to really know them because of that- but I would argue that if you interact long enough and really try to get the other person to open up, then the truth will come out. (Unless you are dealing with a total psychopath- but that's something else entirely.)

Specially with so many ways to interact aside from chat- like Skype, Facetime etc. I made some good friends in online gaming- we would have conversations while we played and learned a lot about each others lives. Sometimes we would give advice when asked, or just listen when one of us wanted to vent or talk about their problems. These are things friends do for each other- and I would argue that the friendships I made were pretty similar to that of my real life friends.

As for a romantic relationship- you could develop feelings for someone but it's probably more difficult since physical contact i.e. sex is such a big part of romantic relationships. But then again, I've heard there are some longtime married couples who are very much in love but no longer have sex. So to each his own, I guess.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short.
But shout it at them in German, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Actually, I do, though it won't happen that soon, unlike real life relationship. Also, I think it often happens unplanned.

I met my current boyfriend in late December 2012 on facebook, and at that time I expected nothing less. After a couple of months conversing, hat initially started off as a casual friendly relationship turned into something more I think and I didn't expect that, and that's even before I got to meet him because he was miles away from me. However, we didn't immediately engage in a relationship until I met him in 2015. And after getting to know personally some more (took around 3-5 months, give or take) we eventually made it official, although neither of us didn't exactly propose to each other.

So, because of that, I think you can actually be in online relationship and if you survive long enough, you may be able to meet that person some day.
