Well I was having a conversation with someone, and they said I was being close minded when I thought it was a risky move to meet people on the internet in real life . When I meet people I have connections with them somehow, where they came from, from what friend, etc. Where as someone from the internet could be lying to you, and disappear like they never existed. I guess it because I'm not the type of person that would become friends with people I just met off the street.

Your thoughts?

i think its risky too, you can never be sure of who they truly are or if they are even giving you their real name, i have heard of MANY murder stories where the victim met the criminal over the internet, but i guess if you have been friends FOR years and you live chat from time to time then it wouldn't hurt i guess but be sure to tell people where you are going or bring a friend with you, better be safe than sorry

You do what is comfortable to you. If you are not totally COMPLETELY comfortable meeting someone from the web, then don't. If you are to meet this person for the first time, choose a public place, bring a friend, and let everyone know where you are and what time you will be done. (God I sound like a Parent)

I probably wouldn't do it but then again... I've never been in a situation like that.

I met my wife over the internet. On a porn site no less. We've been happily together for over five years. It can be done but I assure you we're the exception, not the rule. I think being murdered is also the exception rather than the rule. Most often when you meet someone over the internet its best to talk to them for quite a while. Months maybe but the idea is to have a good idea of who you're about to meet before you meet. I have met several other people over the internet other than my wife and while some of us parted ways quickly some of us have remained friends for some time. Everything in life comes with risks, the idea is to manage those risks, not avoid them. At least that's my thought on the matter.

Just use common sense and get to know the person online through various means. Sure people can lie to you on the internet but if they lie about everything in their life you can pick up and catch them at it most of the time. (if not ALL of the time)

Actually just about everything Bromopar said minus the porn wife

And I have heard of MANY more murder stories where the victim met the criminal in person! Just saying, that applies to anything. That said, I'd encourage you to take a friend, meet in a public place, see how it goes. Go have lunch or something. I've done the same and never had trouble. Just use common sense and you'll be as safe as you would be any other time.

Get to know them over a long period of time, would be my advice. I've met people from over the internet before. It went fine.

I don't even know how to troll people who meet their marriage partners over porn sites.

I really don't.

I wouldn't mind meeting someone i know from fb or any other site but I'd have to have know them for at least a bit of time and we would have to meet in a public place,for whatever reasons, Whether the person seems trustworthy or not its just best to meet someone youre meeting for the first time(s), somewhere public in order to bring all risk factors lower

But yeah, I like meeting new people once I've gotten to know them :D


one of the best gf's and friends ive ever had i met on myspace. before we begain dating I came to find out she had grown up in the same neighbor hood as one of my friends and was actually one of his friends. So, sometimes it works out, and as we know from news stories and all....some times it doesnt work out

True its risky, and I was scared to meet new people on the internet for years, then a few years back i joined a chatroom for anime and cosplay which has 12 webcams and we could all see each other.

Well we talked for about a year and found out we were all going to the same convention. Thats when i had a bbq and invited them and it was alot of fun. We are all different but we shared the same interest. Now its 3years later and 3 years of going to the con together, im glad i met them all :D.

ANDDDD I met my fiance in there and we are about to get married in 12 days :D.
