Gone are the days when fostering a romantic connection with someone online was considered taboo. Dating apps have normalized using the internet to find love, but anyone who's seen Catfish — the documentary-turned-reality series — knows that opening yourself up to love online can also come with some serious risks.
So, can you fall in love online before meeting someone face-to-face? And if so, is it safe to open up to them without ever having been in the same room together?
According to Diana Dorellintuitive dating coach and author of The Dating Mirror: Trust Again, Love Againwithout real-life contact, you run the risk of developing strong feelings for the idea of someone, not the person themselves. That said, Dorell explained that it is possible to experience falling in love virtuallyespecially if you've been communicating via video chat. But it's important to keep in mind that if all of your conversations have been through messaging, this can be a major red flag that the person you're becoming invested in may have something to hide.
Unfortunately, finding love can be hard, which makes it tempting to pursue connections that might not be as sound as you think they are. Behavioral scientist and relationship coach Clarissa Silva believes that the frustration of dating apps could be part of the problem. Although it's easy to focus on the positives and ignore the red flags, proceed with caution if you're getting close to someone who you've never met — especially if you haven't even seen them via video chat.
If they're sincere, they're probably just as eager as you are to set a date to meet in person, or to Skype if you're long-distance or stuck at home. There's nothing wrong with meeting someone and developing an attachment to them online, but make sure you're not rationalizing an irrational situation.
So, it becomes a perfectly fine relationship. And as scary as it may be to think that this person could be catfishing you, don't let your fear get in the way of following your gut. Anyone who has good intentions will be more than willing to come out from behind their screen to solidify your relationship face-to-face.
