You’ve met someone online, but they live a continent away. You don’t know what the chances are of meeting them in reality, but you’ve fallen for them, and you don’t want to let them go. What are the protocols for starting a long distance relationship online and how do you turn your virtual relationship into reality?

You may speak to dozens of interesting people (and several dozen uninteresting ones) before you meet that person who you’re willing to start a long distance online relationship with. But to meet them online in the first place, you must put yourself out there and start contacting potential partners. Take that step and feel out those online who spark your interest.

Once you’ve got a conversation going, make a connection. From my own experience, investing some time into getting to know this person is one of the most important parts of starting a long distance online relationship…and one of the most fun! Ask insightful questions. Test their sense of humor. Don’t just scratch the surface, dig deeper. Be genuinely interested in who they are and what they are and what they want to be and do. If they’re “the one,” they’ll be doing the same.

You’ve felt a spark, so now it’s time to build a bond. You have things in common; explore them together. The great thing about dating online is that you get to really know a person. Writing – especially behind the safety of a computer screen – allows people to be more open and vulnerable than they may let themselves be in reality. In this way, you can truly see inside this person’s heart and soul. You can be “naked” in front of each other without having to undress.

With this openness and vulnerability comes a deep and sincere connection. This connection is love. It can be scary to fall in love online and start a long distance relationship, but once you do start having these deeper feelings for each other, you’ll want to spend every moment, every day talking to this person. And after you fall for each other, you’ll share a deep desire to meet and start your life together.

Whether that person is a couple hundred miles away or a couple continents, you will move mountains to meet them and turn the virtual into reality. After you’ve been online dating long distance, your first meeting  is inevitable. Set a date and location to meet. Don’t be nervous. You will be, but don’t be. Reality may be more beautiful than whatever you’ve been imagining.

While long distance internet dating may seem impossible, when you meet that special someone online, you’ll do anything to make the impossible possible. Take these steps when starting a long distance online relationship, and you may just find your soul mate on the other side of the world.
