A lot of people out there have met their significant others through the computers and why shouldn't you?There's just a few things to follow and to keep an eye on.
In most cases all you have to do in Internet chats is just type out the web site address' URL, like this: With e-mail addresses the format is a bit different: mailto:full_address_here In some Internet chats you may have to employ full HTML coding to post up a web or mail link.
Again you will have to refer to any instructions that the chat has on posting links. Such a new and wonderful concept, that is until you see the person you're talking to in person! While chatting away you may come across someone who happens to have your same interests.
Try not to yell, this is where you either type in all capitals or use text editing to increase the font size and bold type of your message.
In IRC's you can only type in all capitals, there is no text editing.
When in IRC chats there's the "/me" command to do your actions.
Just type it in like this: /me your action here, and it will print out your name and the action you just did.
Usually people will keep in contact through e-mail, regular mail, and sometimes phone calls.
And if you do somehow find a way to meet, hey more power to you!
Or if you want to do the asterix technique instead in an IRC chat you can do that also.
It depends on the person's preference of doing their actions.
