Online Dating: Is Written Communication Enough To Have Feelings For Someone?

If your divorce is final and you’re ready to step into the world of online dating the same as millions of others around the globe, then you may be wondering how effective the process really is, and whether or not it’s possible to fall in love with someone or develop feelings for them based on words alone. This question was asked of reddit members recently on the r/AskReddit sub. Here were some of the best responses.

1. “It is possible to love who that person is from the way they talk (type), but physical attraction is a big part of love. Once you realize you are not attracted to that person all that ‘love’ goes away real quick. Sad, but true.”

2. “Writing is usually very personal and displays a person’s true personality better than verbal communication. It’s harder to mask who you really are with written words. So, yes, I believe that it’s completely possible.”

3. “For me, yes, which is probably sad. If she has my favorite qualities in a girl, it’s an instant crush for me. And if we continue contact, I don’t see why not. Never had it happen before though.”

4. “Yes. Three years later bam married. No regrets.”

5. “Maybe. If both of you prefer written communication, then yes. But body language is so important. I don’t think I could fall in love completely without knowing whether our physical quirks align or not.”

6. “Absolutely whether that love would continue after I met would be questionable. I have had a few LTR [long term relationships] where I felt I was in love and after many months met the person and it wasn’t the same.”

7. “I could perhaps fall in love with my idea of a person through their written communication, but I believe I’d need to meet them in the flesh to know if my idea of them matched reality. The adage ‘actions speak louder than words’ is apt here, a guy might be able to write the most moving poetry I’ve ever read but I wouldn’t be able to judge him until I know first hand how he treats people. … Another thing that’s quite personal to me is smell and manners, I simply couldn’t fall in love with anyone with bad body odor or who eats with their mouth open, no matter how eloquent and caring they may be, I’d wish them all the luck in the world with other, more tolerant, ladies, but not with me.”
