5 Reasons Online Relationships Fail
It's normal human nature, to seek companionship, love, and closure wherever they can find it. Whilst some people go through more conventional ways of meeting people like; dating apps or face to face, there are others who find closure or fall in love with people they met online.
Online relationships have actually come to stay. This is because let's face it, this is where you always are anyway.
Nevertheless, being in a virtual relationship doesn't excuse couples from having regular relationship problems. Matter of fact, these issues they face are similar to the reasons why conventional "face to face" relationships fail.
Out of the many reasons for failed virtual relationships, here are 5 reasons why online relationships fail;
When you've not seen someone before, you tend to create an ideal image of what they should look like in your head. At that point, they are your dream girl/guy.
This can cause you to put unrealistic expectations on them. If you two finally meet and they don't live up to those expectations, it breeds disappointment and hurt feelings.
Not Enough Face Time
Being in a relationship goes beyond text messages, calls and face time. A huge part of it requires the couple sitting down together to have a heart to heart conversation.
Online relationships lack this factor and the couple might begin to get frustrated because there are things they need to discuss, which can't be done over the phone. And if you two can't meet regularly, then over time both of you might get tired of not seeing each other.
It Is Online
An online relationship is only existent when both of you are online. As soon as you both go offline, the rules of engagement change.
They can do whatever they want and can tell their partner what they please. Virtual relationships lack honesty and faithfulness because
you can't see each other and as such, don't know what you're up to.
Also, most online relationships are one-sided and simply born out of love addiction. Your partner simply got into it because they are just excited to have someone on the whole internet to talk to on a regular basis.
Lack Of Physical Satisfaction
As a human being that you are, there are times when you will just be craving physical contact.
And there is nothing more disappointing and heartbreaking than having a boyfriend or girlfriend you can't do those things with because they are inside your phone or laptop.
You can't hug your laptop or imagine forever and at some point, you have to go out and find the real thing because "Body no be firewood".
