This refers to a couple (friends, lovers, whatever) that know each other only via online correspondence (e-mail, IM chats, video rooms, etc).
A: Jasmine and I have a great elationship, dude.

B: Um, she lives in Vietnam, dude.

A: I know, but she writes very flirty e-mails. And her myspace is totally hott.
noun, An online relationship (hence the name). It's where two people try to go out only with AIM and e-mail. Either terribly romantic or terribly pathetic.
Girl: Do you want to go out sometime?

Guy: no, sorry, i'm in an e-lationship

A one-sided relationship that takes place solely on the internet. The female in it is usually a nice girl that thinks it's just a friendship, and the male is usually a desperate, anti-social nerd that thinks he has a girlfriend that he's never met, and expects her not to associate with any other males on the internet or jealousy and anger will ensue. When the male finally expresses his feelings about this girl he's never met, she informs him that it would be awkward to meet in real life and that she actually already has a real boyfriend, and the nerd is crushed, his hopes of being e-laid are dashed.

It almost always ends with a lengthy session of cyberstalking from the male nerd.
Billy was bragging about having a girlfriend but it turned out he's just in an e-lationship, what a fag.

an online relationship, not unlike, but often longer lasting and deeper than a flirtationship
even though it's just online, his girlfriend was jealous that he's been having an elationship with another girl for years.

A relationship with someone you've only ever talked with online.
Craig is so funny, I'm thinking about friend requesting him and taking our e-lationship to the next level.

She was ending the elationship as she couldn't deal with not seeing him in person.
