An internet relationship is a relationship between people who have met online, and in many cases know each other only via the Internet.

Online relationships are similar in many ways to pen pal relationships.

Other ways of communicating online with these devices are via services and applications such as Email, Skype, IChat, instant messaging programs, social networking services, asynchronous discussion groups, online games, virtual worlds and the World Wide Web.

Some of these ways of communicating online are asynchronous (meaning not in real time), such as You Tube and some are synchronous (immediate communication), such as Twitter.

The main reason mentioned for this was that meeting people via online dating reminded them of “how difficult it is to find the right person.” In a comparison of online and offline dating, the majority said that online dating makes it easier to meet new, interesting people and go on casual dates without causing any difference in their ability to find a serious partner.

Only 18 percent of men and women believe that online dating makes it more difficult to find a serious partner.

Coming off the heels of the recent controversy surrounding online dating’s negative effect on monogamy, coupled with a spike in resolutions surrounding dating, Coffee Meets Bagel sought to find out about its users’ preferences when it comes to using an online dating service.

Survey results reveal that online dating does not threaten monogamy, and it often times causes users to desire more serious relationships instead of continuous casual dates.

One in ten Americans have used an online dating site or mobile dating app themselves, and many people now know someone else who uses online dating or who has found a spouse or long-term partner via online dating.

This relationship can be between people in different regions, different countries, different sides of the world, or even people who reside in the same area but do not communicate in person. Michael Jaffe, author of Gender, Pseudonyms, and CMC: Masking Identities and Baring Souls, "the Internet was originally established to expedite communication between governmental scientists and defense experts, and was not at all intended to be the popular 'interpersonal mass medium' it has become", yet new and revolutionary devices enabling the mass public to communicate online are constantly being developed and released.
