Like KHF said, stupid. Internet dating relies on an emotional bond. Sure it sounds sweet, but it won't last long. If you're young, there's no way you can sustain it for long, you'll lose interest without physical contact.

I guess it does work if you're older (middle aged), because then you're not really in it for the sex.

Nope, still doesn't work. A quick glance at the number of sexual assaults on children performed by middle-aged men/women facilitated via internet dating would convince you. Anonymity is the greatest weapon against any relationship.
