Just curious about how people feel on the subject. I don't care for it, the big thing being that people can be totally different from their online person, plus you never know who someone is through the computer! Stalkers, wanted criminals, pervs hunting innocent children, etc. And internet dating today's getting more and more popular, with all the commercials of people who have "found love online".

The reason I'm really asking this is I have a friend who's completely "in love" with this guy from Europe. She's been talking to him for a few months and is completely obsessed with him to the point where she's sending him expensive clothes and gifts, she's not going to college anymore so she can work to pay for his plane ticket over here (to Texas) and his visa, and get this. She say's they're getting married as soon as he comes over here! All aginst her parents wishes. She figures if she's married to him then her parents can't kick him out. She wants to marry this person who she hasn't even met in person, which I think is stupid. No one can talk any sense into her. And I'm just curious of how you'd act in this kind of situation.

Done ranting. ^^;


Edit: Didn't see the other forum. Sorrys. ^^; I searched for it too! Haha.

I'd give her a good hard slap to the face. Thats just not reasonable thinking, your friend is obsessed and not in a very good way.

Once you've given her that slap, sit her in front of the tv and make her watch the Oprah episode about people being scammed on the internet. Really though, I watched it, there was a story just like yours, she bought him a plane ticket and waited for hours at the airline, she was in a wedding dress and everything. Low and behold he didn't show up.

If he loved her the same way she loves him, he wouldn't be excepting her money and expensive gifts, or allowing her to drop out of college for him.

Oh, and even if its going to be locked. You still deserve advice ^^'
