Usually people will keep in contact through e-mail, regular mail, and sometimes phone calls.And if you do somehow find a way to meet, hey more power to you!

All I can say is, cheating through a computer is ridiculous, but unfortunately it happens.

And like I mentioned of other stuff happening, they can also be messing around with someone not on-line and totally stabbing you in the back.

A lot of people out there have met their significant others through the computers and why shouldn't you?

There's just a few things to follow and to keep an eye on.

Try not to yell, this is where you either type in all capitals or use text editing to increase the font size and bold type of your message.

In IRC's you can only type in all capitals, there is no text editing.

With IRC chats however just type in the addresses for the person to write down since IRC's are text only and you cannot go from an IRC chat room directly to the world wide web. And after talking with this person for some time you may become attracted to them and vice versa.

It just might be what we call in cyberspace, cyber-love.

You can use as many asterixes as you want when typing these out. From hugging an on-line friend to giving someone a cyber-beer to drink.

Also you can use the abbreviations previously mentioned also.

Or if you want to do the asterix technique instead in an IRC chat you can do that also.
