Celebrities In Online Relationships

It seems like every week I get messages like the following:

Is there any way to keep my identity anonymous while using internet dating sites?

There’s no shame in online dating! Over 30% of everybody in America has signed up for some form of dating service online before, and over 80% of singles of 35 have signed up for one. With it being such a growing trend, there’s no reason to be embarrassed in using it. It’s a more efficient way of meeting other singles to date than any other social setting, and studies show that by 2014, over half of the world’s relationships will have started online.

As a little push towards seeing online personals and internet dating as a good thing and not an embarrassing task, here are some current celebrity relationships that take place mainly online:

Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom

After running to the alter within a month, Khloe and Lamar have been very public about the fact they didn’t think about the distance. In an interview with People magazine, Khloe attributed the internet for keeping their relationship fresh.

“Me and Lam talk maybe 10 minutes a day on the phone, and like 4 hours a day online. It’s just easier to BBM him than try to make a call. Plus he can have his laptop on the plane and not his cell, so we can Skype and IM or whatever. It’s literally the glue to our relationship.”

Katy Perry & Russel Brand

With Katy touring the world and Russel stationary while filming movies, they spend their intimate time through the computer.

“My tour manager bought me an iPad so I could have Face Time with Rus while I’m on tour. It’s actually crazy- I can call him during my 2 minute costume changes during a show. He’s not like… there… but it feels like he is. We use Face Time every day.”

Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman

Keith and Nicole  have a similar situation to Katy and Russel, but this time it’s the husband that’s away on tour. Keith has said that his biggest regret in deciding to tour is not getting to spend time with his daughters, so he tries to do it online as much as possible.

“I can’t imagine what my life would be like without Skype. I’ve been getting to know my daughters online, which is a little untraditional, but it’s better for them than hauling them around the world. It surprises me how much you can develop a relationship online. I think without Skype, I would come home and my daughters would be thinking, ‘Mommy, who is this man?’”

Josh Duhamel and Fergie

They’re  a little more on the X-Rated side of having a relationship online, but they’re a great example of intimacy through the internet.

“If it wasn’t for my web cam, Josh and I would have to go months without having sex with each other.”

So there you have it! If the hottest celebrities in Hollywood today are dating online, you shouldn’t be embarrassed about doing it, either.
