    Have you ever been attracted/intrigued by someone you've only met online?

    Like This Thread!
    Note: I am not a stalker.

    But have you ever been strangely intriguied by a Toonzone member? Someone you like, or sorta like or respect, and you just become sort of cyber-attracted to someone, for reasons you don't know why?

    There's someone on these boards that is strangley drawing my attention like this. I like the person to a degree, and kinda respect their opinion, but is not my favorite member or the one I most respect. And yet, I'm strangley preoccupied with this person, and will look for them online and look for their posts.

    It's... weird. Can you really be attracted to a person over the internet? Does that make sense? Why does this person so intrigue me?

    And no, you're not getting the member's name out of me.

    Er...I know you're trying NOT to be creepy here, but it's undoubtedly going to be taken that way. So...let's rephrase this thread, and call it, "Have you ever been intrigued/attracted to someone you've only met on the internet?"

    And yes, let's keep names out of it, just to be on the safe side.

    Timmy for SURE.

    Believe it or not but we're secretly cyber dating.

    I dunno, really. That's hard to say. There are many interesting posts and threads. The web ingeneral? Yes but due to circumstances, I let him go, crush wise. I was so sick and tired of crying over him and getting myself sick.

    I am intrigued by "Internet crazies," but certainly not in an attracted sense. You don't get a lot of them at Toonzone, though.

    hhmm...I tend to click on threads based on whether or not familar TZers have responded to it. And I don't think there's anything 'strange' or 'odd' about it. I just want to see what certain people have to say about a particular topic.I guess it all has to do with perhaps, unintentionally wanting to get to 'know' these people better.Natural curiosity regarding others which we exhibit a lot in 'real' life too...

    I lack subtlety though... big problem

    Yes, I have been attracted to a member or two (not just on TZ, though it doesn't feel as strange when it's a TZer, for some reason). I'd say it's not that uncommon... sometimes easy to get attracted to someone's personality.

    you were the one I loved, the one thing that I tried to hold on to

    i know i am intreged to some one on this different site and it doesn't feel the same way with a ToonZOner. like you said i like the person how they make piffy comments and are funny in some sort of way.

    I say, don't be ashamed to share your love.

    And if you love to share your shame, really, who am I to judge?

    I know people say that online you first get drawn to someone's personality and the common interest you share, and that's how you can get a better match.

    However, I actually seem to be too shallow for that, so the answer is no.

    But there are people I've known online that I respect and look forward to reading what they have to say about things.
