Now comes the question "Is it possible to love someone you have never met?"
I think the answer is yes. Of course, it is possible. Love takes many forms and many of them are totally unexpected and uncontrollable. Love can be a "meeting of the Minds" instead of a "meeting of the Bodies". There was a time when people would be in love through letter correspondance...much slower than the Net ;-)
"Is it True Love?". No, it's a different kind of Love. It's a more idealised Love, one that does not endure the difficulties and challenges of the every day life. So, in a way, it is a sort of untested Love. But then again "What is True Love? and does True Love really exist?". Those are very difficult questions. True Love is another sort of idealised Love, it is always talked about in movies but movies only last for 90 minutes!
Let me rephrase the question - ok?
"What is really Love?"
Love is when you feel something strong for someone, when you feel close to that person, when you are ready to accept that person's defaults as much as his/her qualities, when you are making yourself available for him/her, to be ready to help whenever needed or required, when you are ready to teach or be taught, when you are ready to tell off or be told off without fear of consequences but simply because it is the right thing to do for him/her, when you feel proud of that person, when you know when to sacrifice yourself and give the right recommendation...and many other things.
So, yes, I think it is possible.
