I went from N.Y. to Okinawa to meet a girl who used to write poetry for me. It was really romantic for the first week and I even thought about getting a job there until she introduced me to her parents and they turned out to be totally racist assholes who hated me simply because I'm not Japanese. My response was to point out that races are a cultural myth and that genetically the last race of man to share the planet with us were the Neanderthals who became extinct around 30,000 years ago. Her father called me a redneck at which point I pointed out that I'm not European, I'm an eastern Turk. I happen to look white because many people from the Caucasus mountains happen to be Caucasians (who knew? pfffttt). He called me a liar, which was very strange, and somehow even more personal than anything else they had said. I got angry and asked them why they were such fans of inbreeding and her father tried to punch me in the face, so I threw cold soup on him and ran out the door.

I waited around outside for an hour but she never came. She wouldn't answer my calls either, so I ended up flying back home without even saying goodbye. Or visiting Tokyo, which I still regret, almost as much as having my heart broken. It's been twelve years and I still haven't seen Tokyo... I should take a vacation.

Lets say you have a good friend here on CR or somewhere else online like facebook or other website you use and after talking with them for long time and really know them and know who they are and know they are not lie about who they say they are. How far would you go to meet them? I seen a lot of ppl on cr who talk and started the online dating but never really met in real life b/c they were to far away but some of them try to make the plans to meet each other even that they know they live really far away.

So how far would you go just to meet someone to hangout for the day or try to start dating with?


I met a girlfriend online- bought her plane tickets and we spent the weekend together...Then we did it again a few months later but for 2 weeks. I guess I'd do just about anything if I got what i wanted out of it.

I traveled from Ohio to Maine before to meet a lady. That was several years ago and we've both moved on, though I still consider then to be the happiest point in my life.

IMO why bother spending money just to see someone, you're good friends with online it be cute and all but seriously just stick to people within your own province or state that would be as far as I would go. Although I did go to india for my guild leader in guild wars simply cause i knew him for 3 years online and I was the co leader of the guild so might as well i guess. NOTE: friend, not person you want to meet cause you like them that is kind of dumb

I worked my butt off in college and my part-timer to meet someone. He paid for the ticket though. He was a -CENSORED-, but thanks to him I visited my family in the USA and also was able to meet my best friend.

Depending on how close we are I'd take any step to meet them. I have no way of going for to meet someone at the moment, but depending on how close we are I'd do whatever it took to meet them no matter how long it takes whether the person was family, best friend or significant other

I did travel to the UK and Finland to meet really good friends I met online in an MMO. If the connection you share with someone is strong enough and you really want to meet up then why not?

Both trips were very different, needless to say (one of them didn't end so well) I would go so far as to say I'd like to visit Finland again when the engaged couple I'm friends with there is going to get married someday.

The UK trip was for a possible relationship. No matter what, you take a risk when you go to meet someone you like romantically. I'm currently planning to meet up with someone here on CR I met, but it's halfway across the world. I'll do it none the less, especially since there's this gut feeling telling me it's the right thing to do, but it will be a while before it can happen. I'd rather grasp the oppertunities that come my way, experience the world and meet the people in it than always stay put and be safe.

So yeah I'd go really far if I connect a lot with someone. When I've traveled like this I always took as an adventure and something I would possibly learn something from, which I did in both cases. Never regretted it. Heck there's a bunch of people I'd like to meet from CR, but it would get pretty expensive if I were to meet them all.
