Are Online Relationships Good or Bad

Are Online Relationships Good or Bad If you have ‘met’ someone online, you may be wondering are online relationships good? Which depends on the exact nature of the relationship and how each of the people in the relationship feels about it.

Relationships are very personal and every person, and couple, make their own rules. Having said that though, most good relationships will have some common features.

For instance, it is important at an early stage for each of you to discuss what you want to get out of the relationship. Now, obviously, I am not talking about pledging your undying love after you have just met someone, but as you get to know one another if the bond is growing, would either, or both, of you like to eventually meet?

Or would you be more comfortable just keeping things in the cyber world?

There is no right or wrong when it comes to that question, but it is important that you are both on the same page. Someone can get hurt if they feel the connection is strong enough to warrant meeting in person and the other person has no desire to take the relationship that far.

If one or the other of you is using your online relationship to ‘cheat’ on a real-world partner, then it is not good. Cheating is cheating and most people would define it as having an emotional connection, a romantic connection, with someone other than your partner.

Even if the two of you never meet and never have a physical relationship, many would consider it cheating to have another romantic love besides your partner.

One of the biggest things everyone must remember when they engage in an online relationship of any kind is that you do not really know for sure to whom you are talking. That 21-year-old female college student from Kansas may be a 45-year-old plumber from Pittsburgh. Yikes! It is hard to really form a bond with another person if you cannot even be sure who they really are.

Online relationships allow you to fill in a lot of the blanks about a person, and often you will fill things in the way you would like them to be. This may be one of the biggest pitfalls of all when it comes to online relationships.

Of course, if the two of you meet in person, you will overcome that obstacle. But if the two of you are content to leave things strictly online you must remember that you can only get so close to someone when you cannot ever be sure they are who they say they are.

Many people would argue that you can never really get to know another person, but if you have met them in person at least you know if they are really who they say they are.

Overall, the question are online relationships good depends on you and what you are looking for in a relationship. The internet offers a fantastic way to meet new people, just make sure that you are clear about what it is you are really looking for.
