This doesn’t always turn to be the case; no matter how much phone or email chemistry you share. Not a single spark.) Secondly, when you meet someone online, it’s easier for your imagination to get carried away by that heady mixture of excitement and hope.

A decade ago, it was still considered sort of creepy if you admitted to meeting someone online. People all over the world are striking up friendships and romances with people they meet online on facebook, in chat rooms or game forums, and via email and apps.
