Until you have actually met, face to face, there is no relationship. Chat rooms are virtual rooms and any relationship solely on line, is simply that, virtual. Yes, it's a great place to meet and sound each other out on the important aspects of your lives, however, you don't honestly know the other person until you've seen them interact in their homes, with their families and friends. People lead airbrushed lives on line, you know nothing of their actual lives, how they handle finances, chores, relationships or anything else. You build a fantasy and it's easy to waste time and energy thinking that 'if only we could be together'. The reality is, you're not together for a reason. If two people honestly think they belong together, they would find a way, chances are one of those two is simply boosting their ego, before their actual spouse or partner asks them to take out the garbage and pick up their dirty socks.
