Thread Name: BS: Cyber Relationships. are there a lot?
Subject: RE: BS: Cyber Relationships. are there a lot?
The key element to remember is that the visuals are not there. Photographs and videos (if present) come a lot later in the relationship all too often. And written verbiage is carefully considered - painfully so sometimes.

Now if you went to a Folk Club, Ceilidh or festival the visuals would be the first thing. And more dynamic than any video. And then there are the pheromones. They work at the subconscious level and are very present at any age.

Any distance relationship has to to gamble that the close-up elements don't clash. But when the written text is all you have it gets more attention than it deserves.

So - I would say there are not a lot of cyber relations, just more than there used to be (or their equivalents like pen pals, dating agencies, personal ads etc).
