Can be either:
1). A relationship that develops online, with no face-to-face element and/or no plans for ever meeting up in the real world or consummating the relationship physically with intercourse.

2). Using online sites and services to find someone to eDate, whom you have no intention of ever meeting in real life.
Guy 1: That girl has a different guy in a video call, every night. Always eDating someone different, every time I look! I wonder if she'll ever find her "Mr. Right" by eDating random dudes, online...
Guy 2: Bro, it's eDating. Let's hope that Mr. Right is out having drinks on the weekend, rather than picking up eGirls on some eDating server on Discord.
Guy 1: I guess I ain't Mr. Right...
Guy 2: Did you just figure that out, genius?

An activity which involves many of the processes of traditional dating but without the associated time and expense. The primary purpose is to create or nurture a romantic attraction which will lead to eBases 1 through 4 by utilising a variety of online services. Typical eDate activities include instant-messaging, yahoo games and watching the same dvd's. A successful eDate may result in an /invite request your date’s private IRC channel on Quakenet for cyber (sex). EDates are often criticised for not affording the participants the level of intimacy that can be achieved through physical interactions. Common precursors to eDates include eCards and eFlowers however many consider these totally gay.

To eDate someone involves this: guy sends nude, girl sends nude back, Skype calls, nudes, "I love you" over text, Snapchat daily, then finally meet irl after a year of talking to find that the person is very different to what you'd thought they'd be
Bro I edated this girl called Shantelle but when I met her in real life, she said her name was Mary. Turns out when I asked for her name last year, she said "Shan't tell"
