I won't, haha. I don't really believe in the possibility of an online crush (probably intense curiosity or like for personality, but as far as crush? Not my case); I'm more of a direct, face to face, kind of person.
Hmm, I wouldn't call it degrading as much as simply "unreal." I've had friends who have had crushes on people online, they seem so in love that it's almost ridiculous, but after they meet in person, these friends come back to me and tell me, "No, man, she wasn't for me after all..." So yup, you don't really know someone until you deal with them more directly and have years knowing each other in person, that's what I think. So, something like "true love" or anything like that simply online just seems pretty unreal to me.
