Of course not.

My current boyfriend was in love with everything about me before he met (got to know) me. He tried for over a year trying to convince me he would treat me right and that he loved me and wanted me more than anything. I constantly said no, no, no.
He told me I was beautiful, I was perfect for him, that he loved me for years and years while I had no idea he even knew my name. I thought it was awkward, odd, and very unbelievable. But he constantly fought with me saying I was the right person for him, he could feel it, I was the girl he wanted to love for the rest of his life.

We celebrated our one year on February 18th. I guess he was right. ;)

My husband insists that it was love at first sight. That was 7 years ago, so, I’m not going to argue with him now. ;)
Obviously I don’t believe in love at first sight, maybe intense attraction.. but it makes a cute story, anyhow.

Alex and I fell in love before we saw each other’s pics online even. By the time I went to see him on his business trip, we were long in trouble about how our lives have been changed by one another. Seeing him only made everything stronger but it wasn’t when I fell in love with him.

Well I was told I was loved before I met her. We talked over the internet and she said she was in love with me. Until one really knows another I would say it was more of an attraction.

Nope! Unless in the womb counts :-/
All mothers love their bumps I guess & friends & family & even total strangers! So when I was a bump, most likely…. Before I was dragged out, kicking & screaming :-/

Yes.

We met online and the feeling was mutual. I really didn’t think that it could happen, but, it did. We chatted via phone, cam, messenger and email everyday. The relationship lasted a year.

No, not as a rule, I think. But I’ve found a number of people to hate me before our first meeting, if that helps your research.

I fell in love with someone I had never met- long before the days of the Internet!

It was my first year in college. Several of the campus buildings had stairwells covered in graffiti- not the gang scrawls of today, but poetry, stories, quips, pictures…it was magical. I was entranced with the work of one person in particular.

We did meet, eventually. While we were never boyfriend-girlfriend, we did share a great friendship that still endures, almost 30 years later! We had a lot of good times together, and he influenced me more than anyone else I have met.

@BLITsZ @Zaku was answering the questions listed above in the details

BLITsZ's avatar

Yes, certainly it was!!!
What do you do with questions, answer them right?

SpatzieLover's avatar

@BLITsZ You stated “We’re here to answer not ask questions!!!” to @Zaku, correct? What did you mean by that?

BLITsZ's avatar

Your statement which I read was wrong, you word it as a declarative sentence even though it was interrogative.

My wife and I fell in love over the Internet. : ))

SavoirFaire's avatar

My wife first became interested in me when she was in the audience of a show I was doing, but I don’t think it would be reasonable to say that’s when she fell in love with me. Indeed, I don’t think you can fall in love with someone you’ve never met, though you can certainly become quite strongly infatuated. Meeting someone, however, need not be a face-to-face experience.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@CaptainHarley The funny thing is, I would later notice her from afar as well. I moved in fairly quickly after that, though.

Did you and your wife meet by chance on the internet, or was it on a site designed for that kind of thing?

CaptainHarley's avatar

@SavoirFaire

We just happened to like the same site, which was one where you could build your own pages and update your own blog, and others could post responses to it. She kept responding to almost everything I posted, and we just became best friends from there.We’re so much alike it’s almost frightening! : ))
