I believe that most of the folks who are able to fall in love with someone they've only met online have had face-to-face meetings, in a sense, through Skype and other types of video chats, including cyber sex.

I don't think I would enjoy a totally online relationship at all, and am also quite skeptical whenever anyone says they fell in love with someone they've never met in person - but then I think about the olden days of letter-writing. Quite a few romances happened and thrived via correspondence without photos or anything else. So I know it's possible, though unlikely for me to find myself in that kind of situation.
