Do you think the social stigma associated with online dating is justified or should relationships initiated online be valued just as much as any other relationship?
I know of several online relationships that have worked.
A lot of people meet on line. Two of my cousins met that way and married.
When it was new it seemed a little odd but now that so many couples have successfully met online it shouldn't have any stigma. It's no worse than going to a bar to meet people.
It's not a way *I* would ever want to meet anyone, but I don't see why people who want to use it should be stigmatized for it.
If you've net someone you vibe with, it doesn't matter how you met.
It doesn't need to be justified to anyone. I know many couples who met online.
I initially communicated with my wife online, though there was no romantic interest until I met her.
They should totally be valued the same. I know a bunch of people who have successful marriages but met online. As log as it isn't all online, and they do meet a lot in person, it doesn't matter where the initial contact begins.
