Is virtual love, real love?

Yesterday, I had jury duty. As I settled in for a long day, I of course had to find someone to talk to about what else, relationships.

She began to tell me a story about her friend who was gorgeous, but her self-esteem was low. She had the tendency to choose men that were dismissive¬†and she wasn’t assertive when it came to expressing her needs.

In short, she was content with conversating via text and e-mails.

I immediately asked her, what is he hiding? She didn’t have a real relationship because she couldn’t even talk to him over the phone?

 

So Strivers, let me ask you?¬† Can you have a real relationship by communicating via text, IM’s and e-mail? Or is it just virtual love?
