Can Online Relationships Turn Into the Real Deal? 2023

Updated: January 30, 2023

As you know, the internet is now in everyone’s homes and is viewed more as a necessary utility than a luxury. If you’re wondering whether or not your online relationship can turn into the real deal, here are a few reasons why it’s worth pursuing:

1. You already know how to interact with an online partner.

When you’re chatting online, one of the most interactive things you can do is stream a movie together. And even that involves a lot of texting. You don’t need a special venue to get things started—you can just openly talk to someone and have a good time. And chances are, you mostly talk through a messaging app.

2. You’re smart enough to know if you’re being catfished.

Thanks to Nev and Max, you already have the tools at hand to make sure the person you’re talking to is legit. If their camera is constantly broken? Or they say they’re a model? Or if they always have a big excuse as to why they’re not able to meet? Red flags.

3. You were probably attracted to their personality before their looks.

Being physically attracted to your partner is important—but when you meet someone new through a game or an online profile, it’s likely their words that hold all the weight. Yes, you perused their pictures, but it was their about me description that made you contact them directly.

4. Distance isn’t as big of an issue these days.

Distance makes things harder—seriously. But these days, people aren’t as tied to their hometown as they used to. People are willing to move for better opportunities, and love is one of them. It might not be smart to pack your bags and relocate a month after chatting with someone, but if you feel as if you have a real connection—and have had a bunch of successful in-person meet ups beforehand.

5. A lot of people meet their spouse online.

Back in December, we reported on a survey done by The Knot that 19% of brides met their significant other online—17% through dating sites, and 2% through social media. That’s a statistic worth repeating. The Knot even found that dating sites were the most popular way for romantic relationships to start overall.

6. It’s nice to meet someone who knows you for you.

When you meet someone online, you weren’t introduced by a friend who, unfortunately, knows about your checkered dating history. Nor do they know your family, who everyone in town knows due to their high profile jobs. Obviously, if things get serious, your significant other will figure out these details—as they should.
