I know that many people here doing online role play. They enjoy the feeling of playing a role that they are not in real life. For example, a nurse may play a role of a musician, a primary school teacher may play a role of a policeman.

However, in real life, would you pretend to be another person for months, even years, to have a relationship with someone and enjoy it. You never meet the person face to face; you contact the person via emails, voice calls and send your photos to her/him to establish a fake identity.

I was wondering whether a jobless person, who has nothing to do at home, would like to do this kind of "real life role play", to play with another person's feelings and control another person's life, just for fun and time consumption.

(P.S.This thought has been in my mind for a length of time and it is daunting me.)
