Love on the Internet
I’m dating myself by admitting this, but I remember life before the Internet. A time when falling in love typically meant you were face to face with another person. Now the Internet is simply part of our days.
I spend a lot of time on-line because of my occupation, and find you can get a sense of people’s personalities by the way they “speak” in Computer-land. Whether in a Facebook comment, or blog post, we learn about others. Emoticons, exclamations points, using all caps…not to mention how it’s easier to speak opening using social media. Easier than face-to-face.
This is exactly what the heroine of Harvest Moon, Veronica Sussingham, finds when she “meets” a man who writes a music blog. She’s a singer, he a musician and songwriter. A slow and easy friendship forms. She asks for they to keep their true identity secret, because she is leery, especially after being attacked back in graduate school. But through the veil of technology, they get close. Very close.
So what do you think? Is love possible over the Internet?
