    Ah, do you mean can two OS members fall in love? Obviously, teehee. This other site I used to be on, I don't know if anyone's heard of Gaiaonline, but when I was an avid members, I used to come across so many people who met over the site and eventually got married in real life. So. Yes, I believe that people can fall in love through OS!

    Love can be found anywhere ;)

    Like lolkaitlin said, I also met quite a few people who met through gaiaonline and got married, other sites as well but the most I've seen was on Gaia.

    Sure i think so, though perhaps somewhat unlikely since most pple dont actually ever "see" or really communicate in RL after meeting someone on here. But is it possible...sure thing if one was interested enough to pursue the other. It would be no different than many other online meeting places. Whats more the chances of finding someone with at least one similar interest are high.

    It's not impossible; I've seen people become attached to eachother in less social sites than this one. I do however believe that face-to-face relationships have the ability to be more permanent than just monitor-to-monitor relationships. While it's true people can really talk about personal things online more clearly and with less embarrassment than in person... when you're online there's no way of roving anything they about they're life is true... they might even be a boy if they said they were a girl... that's a stretch, but what I mean is, there's no accountability in a place like this and no frieds around to call you out if you tell a lie. Also, for more of a stretch along this train of thought, it's traditional to think of love leading to marriage and you'd be crazy to marry someone you've never seen in person. Also, marriages can't happen over email or webcam, can they?... Wow, I'm tired, this barely makes sense.
    "Reality is nothing but an assumption. Truth is, nobody has the slimmest slight of a clue as to how something's gonna happen until it does. Even then, it's not reality. Reality is propaganda. It's spoon-fed to us until the taste is familiar and we go back for seconds ourselves. It's a tool to shut down what you can hope can be. You put down that spoon. Take heart, have imagination, have faith. Never take hold of your spoon without giving reality room to grow."

    Romance can grow anywhere. Is it recommended to become romantic with someone on the internet? Not unless you get to know they very well. Who knows, you're fed fake photos and a fantastic rp then you arrange a real life meeting and find out the person you thought was your soul mate (lets say you're a guy and the romantic lover is supposed to be a female), ends up being a big hairy guy wearing sweat pants named bob thats eating a messy cheeseburger on the park bench waiting for you.

    In all seriousness though, romance can spawn anywhere at any time. Diamond in the rough, so to speak. I met my girlfriend, we've been together over a year now, on an online game.

    So for those hopeless romantics out there, do not give up hope!

    It will be possible because nothing is impossible in this world.

    so that their relationship will grow stronger..

    To quote both a Drama and a manga....Densha Otoko; Love can happen every and anywhere, yes. Is it possible on O.S? Most certainly. will that love work out? Well you never know...I guess it'd be harder. If anyone here has actually done a long distance relationship...it's very difficult. The possibility exists; quite high considering how many people like you there are here (by this I mean interests). However chances of it being long-lasting or permanent are slim to nil. Considering even normal romance eventually fades and disappears. Unless, of course, you work at it. And sometimes a person just needs the reassurance of someone the ylove's touch. Can't get that via monitors. Just an opinion though, feel free to flame me.

    for me love is just a hormonal thing, so no
    but depending on your idea of love it could eventually happen ^^

    I think it surely is possible. The odds of it happening probably isn't too great, but if two members found a really strong connection, I don't see why not. People are people, whether it's across the internet or in real life. Of course, like others said, someone could be doing a good roleplay and not even be who you think they are, so you have to be cautious.

    Yes it is possible, because every impossible can be possible if you just try and try... But in love yes it is love don't have any limits... as they say - sky is the limit... "It's alright to Dream, and it will be better if you make it came true..."

    Of course, yes.
    We can't even say "no". -but literally, we can-
    Even if it only has 0.000123% probablity of occuring, it's not 0%. ^^
