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 dismissiveĀ 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?Ā  Can you have a real relationship by communicating via text, IM’s and e-mail? Or is it just virtual love?
