There are many lonely people in the world, and some of them have stumbled into online chat rooms to ease the pain of living a solitary life. They can enter rooms that talk about their favorite hobbies, and some will be simply for those who need companionship. When searching online for something a person is not able to find in the real world, they should be cautious. It might appear too good to be true when they find their soul mate online, and unreal digital relationships are becoming more common.
There are people who have discovered that the anonymity they have online is a way for them to be able to live in a fantasy world, and they can be anyone they want. It is easy enough to find a pleasing photo, upload it, and they then build an entire personality around it. The object of their search is another person to bring into their fantasy world, so they care very little if this person invests real emotions. They are living an online dream, so it matters little to them if someone else is hurt or destroyed by their actions.
Domination by people with little control over their own lives is an attractive proposition that is easy enough to do online where it can be impossible for other people to uncover the truth, so there are now some people who have found a way to control others in chat rooms. They begin a relationship that sounds real, but it is nothing more than a way to manipulate others. If someone gets hurt emotionally, there are almost no consequences for the dominating personality.
An online romance might feel perfect to the person experiencing it, but they need to exercise caution. Finding out the other person does not really exist could hurt them, and they have very little recourse when it comes to finding out their one true love is nothing more than an unreal digital relationship.
