I think online dating is ok. I for one am in a relationship online but yes the interaction with my bf isn't possible at the moment due to difficulties so the only way we can keep in contact is via phone when i get enough credit to call. Really the difficult part is the distance between us. Of course it can get really lonely at times knowing that i can only occassionally talk to him but it hasn't changed how i felt about him. I know that won't ever change for the worst but increase every day.
