Is it possible to love someone you've never met personally? πŸ™‚

It is possible. However.... You probably love the version of them you have in your head. Because we always imagine the other person how we want them, not necessarily how they actually are. So there is a high chance that you will feel disappointed when you meet in real life. Of course it's not always the case, but let's be honest, most of the times yes.

I'm not talking about how they look. They can have a personality that they didn't show online, because of the lack of situations. That can later come out in person. Does that make sense?

I feel like this can happen in person as well. Honestly, though it's easier to lie to someone online, there are people who literally lie to multiple people and make them think they have a monogamous relationship, and have multiple families, even in this day and age.

It can be a little scary, sometimes, to think about it, and make it hard to trust anyone. But it's also why I feel like it can be fine to cautiously trust someone online to be who they say they are, because you can't know even in person sometimes.

Sure. You always have to trust your gut feelings about someone and if you think you know them well enough by the conversations you had. Everything is possible.

yes i think its harder to tell who a person is totally online, but i think thjs pro lem is mitigated if u videocall or call someone cuz the more realtime the conversation is the better it represents who they are

This. My father once gave me a piece of advice before he past and dammit was he right. He said "you never truely know someone until you've lived with them". I didn't understand at the time, because I was in a long term relationship with someone I knew irl but after 5 years of dating we finally lived together and mannnn did his colors shine and I realized I only loved the idea I created in my head and how much I clouded the truth.

So true, never lived with someone, nor have I ever had a girlfriend, but I have a gut feeling this is all true.

The science behind that is wild. For example, I have a show that I've watched hours and hours of, multiple seasons, over and over. It's gotten to the point where I feel like the cast members are my friends and I really enjoy their company. I have never been in the same room with them or even spoken to these people. I think that's called parasocial relationships.

That's exactly right. I imagine it happens with people you see online regularly or with people who are in your day to day life without being an active part of it, too. I guess if you simplify the urges being a crush it's the same thing πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ
