In today's world with all the technology, relationships have changed to some extent. With being able to meet people from all over the world simply through different networking sites and websites, you can easily find people that you might be able to become email friends with. Building a relationship through emails will allow for feelings to develop especially between a man and a woman without the heavy pressure of dating and the rewards of getting to know someone better and will still be present.
Having an email relationship with someone is probably the equivalent of being pen pals back in the day when that was something common. This doesn't mean going through an eDating service, although some can find lasting friendships in this manner, it means that you discover a possible friend via different Internet avenues. Even though email relationships might seem to be safe, you still need to be very, very careful.
After you realize that you may be forming a friendship via email, always remind yourself just how easy it is even for you to exaggerate things about yourself when you are not face to face with a person. If it's easy for you, realize that it's probably just as easy for the other person. So, it's vital that you be as honest as you can, be yourself, be friendly and don't try to pretend to be someone you aren't. The wrong idea can also be read into emails so it's always a very good idea to include icons and emotiocons to help better convey your true meaning behind your email statements. Any simple phrase can be taken in the wrong manner and even out of context if you aren't careful. Also, never think even a little white lie is OK, because it's not.
When emailing someone, always make sure to respond back to them in a timely manner. It can come off as being rude to wait to respond for too many days. You should also make sure to try and keep your replies cute as well as entertaining and try and answer all questions or comments that you feel comfortable answering. If you don't feel comfortable answering a certain question, then be honest and tell them so. If at any point in time the emails start to make you feel really uncomfortable then this is the first sign that you need to end the relationship.
Make sure to include lots of photos in your emails, of yourself, the area you live in, your pets anything that is in good taste can be sent in order to help your email friend feel closer to you. You definitely need to be tasteful in any of the photos that you might send.
Some day, the question will come up about meeting each other. This can be the hardest part about an email relationship. Unless they live relatively close distance alone could be a problem. If you can afford to fly out and meet the person this could be a great experience. You just should make sure that if you do something like this that you bring someone along with you.
