    Random Q

    Advertisements
    DB and I met online, but didn't label anything until after we met in person a few months later. I have a friend who insists that she is dating a man she's met online....but not in person. As in, she calls him her boyfriend, expects him to remain loyal, call/text constantly, not talk to other girls, etc. I was just wondering what y'all think- would you label a relationship with a person you haven't physically met yet?

    Who am I to judge anyone else's relationship status?

    They can call themselves married if they want.
    If you want my opinion on your relationship or life issues, just ask Villanelle!

    I don't see anything wrong with that. I'd hope she was cautious and did her due diligence in order to ensure that he is who he says he is. But if that were taken care of, I can't see what the issue is.

    If they view each other as boyfriend and girlfriend, they they are.

    For me personally, I doubt I'd be in a relationship with a person I've never met. I don't think I could connect at that level without having been in his physical presence. But that's just me. I don't see anything wrong with someone else feeling otherwise.

    Not really my place to determine what they should call themselves. Though, DH and I refrained from labels and commitment until we had actually met in person.

    If it works for them, who am I to judge?

    I've haven't met my best girlfriend in person yet. I have a lot of tremendously great girlfriends, but she's the person that I go to with everything. She and my husband are probably the only two people in the world that I trust with everything.


    I can understand being cautious in making sure someone is who they say they are, but once you know I don't think you have to wait to meet someone in person to label something.

    I considered DH my boyfriend for quite a few months before we met in person, whatever works.

    It would be totally circumstantial for me. I don't think there's anything innately wrong with it though.
