How do you even truly know a person over the internet or phone? For me a long distance relationship seems totally out of the question!

How can you truly know a person anyway?
I gotta admit, when I saw the first question, couldn't help but refer to the post above. I mean, how do you truly know a person, even if you're right there with them? I'd have to say it's exposure to the person in many instances that will show you how much you know about them, not you being with them. I mean crap, does the physical part have to be there for you to know a person? I mean, it's not like everyone on the internet is made up of a labyrinth of lies :/ Though some people always think that's the case.
I'd have to say, I got to know my boyfriend really well via the net, seeing I don't think he'd have the guts to say some of the shit he's said to me if it weren't on the net/phone. Some people just can't do it when the real thing is right in front of their face. The internet is always a mask for you, thus if you always put the effort into your relationship, you can see a person's true face that way as well... whether it's good or bad.
