Ok, this might get me shot at, but I have a serious question about this:

How the hell does it possibly work? I mean, how do you really get to know someone you never (or rarely) even see, short of an occasional photograph?

Just seems weird to me, especially the ones that get all serious, like people end up talking about marriage and whatnot.

Granted, it's a lot of fun to get a girl drunk and naked and very ... um, "self-motivated" on a webcam... but I just couldn't see how anything serious could come from this sort of communication... especially when it's so difficult to tell tone and motivation in text.

Not only that, but it seems like there would be a million aspects to a person you'd just never see, and would all hit you at once were you to actually meet the guy/girl in question on the street.

Reason I bring this up: a friend just broke off a rather long one of these, due to how bad things ended up going once they actually met.

How does this shit work anyway?
