Online love is very romantic and exciting. How does he/ she look like? What is his/ her view on Pride and Prejudice? It is the mysteriousness that pushes two strangers from afar to know more about each other.


In China, one of the preconditions for couples to get married is that the groom must own a house. Unfortunately, many lovers break up for lack of material affluence. Online romance, compared with realistic love, attaches more emphasis on the appeal to each other in spirit and involves less material conditions.


Online romance knows no boundary. Boys and girls can chat with each other once they find they have the same topics, regardless of their physical appearance and geographical limit.




The Internet is a virtual world, in which there impossibly exists real, enduring love since it is very difficult to tell the real from the fake on the Internet. Everything provided online may be proved untrue.


Pursuing online romance is sometimes very dangerous because there are many cheaters on the Net. They disguise themselves as perfect lovers, rich, generous and gentle. They know what you want as a soft woman. But all of these are, in fact, tricks they play to cheat money or sex.


Online love grows out of illusion and thus is very infirm. Sometimes, they even don't have an overall understanding of the person they dream about. Yet they know each other better, they break up as quickly as they fall in love.
