Would you meet people from the internet?

I guess I would, but it would have to be in a public setting so no funny business would go down.

A friend and I took an 18 hour road trip to meet some people we met online. We played games online and used voice chat and were FB friends for like 2 years or something first though and it was awesome.

That being said, just make sure you are being safe about it. If you feel uncomfortable with the situation then leave. Try not to depend on them for a ride or something in case things are weird. Always let someone know where you are going etc. etc.

But yeah especially in this day and age it isn't too strange to meet an online buddy IRL.

It is risky... You could walk right into a pedophile's trap, or get murdered.

Unless I've seen them on Skype, (Which I know is risky, too, ANYBODY could seem nice,) and if I've known them for more than a year, I might consider meeting them.

I've met many people in real life I've met over the internet, lucky for me non of them were rapists. But there could always be just that one person you meet...

That person is naive to think you're close-minded for taking precaution on meeting up with strangers from the internet. Even though you have to be wary of who you communicate with online or offline, I feel you have to be more cautious when it comes to conversing with people online. A person would be on their best behavior to get/hear what they want from you.

One individual I rarely speak to now tried to convince me to meet her when she discovered we live in the same area and I repeatedly told her no. Her persistence still frightens me to be honest. I know everyone doesn't have bad intentions when trying to meetup, but I rather not take any chances, even if I do feel a connection with that person.

I meet women off the internet all the time. Infact, im meeting a new girl this weekend. . You guys are talking like you've never had a facebook convo with someone, clicked well with them and wanted to see them in person.. Its not the early 1990s anymore where you can't see who someone is, or look at their mutual friend's list.

There was ONE weird occurrence though. Of the 30 or so girls ive dated, there were 2 bad incidents.. one was a case. She was into some weird sexual shit.. Im talkin handcuffs and hot wax and roleplay. Dropped her like a hot brick and BLOCKED.

The other was some freshman ass girl lieing about her age.. Told me she was 18, after I was with her for a minute she finally came out with the truth talking about she was in love with me, and she knew I Wouldn't talk to her if she told me her real age..which was 15.. I Dropped her ass like a HOT BRICK. Blocked. Dodged a bullet there.

Set up a place to meet up. Away from your regular routine (usual coffee shop, snack place, grocery store, restaurant, home, and work). Some place you rarely go or new. A public venue. You can have a trusted friend, partner, or family member pick you up after. Just inform that person about your plans. You should be all set, if you plan to go through with meeting this person.

This is basically what I do when I meet new people online in real life. I never give them my address or area where I live to someone online I've never met offline. That can wait till I trust the person more, or never if I don't.

If we have mutual friends that I've physically met, then I wouldn't mind.

Can they still hit me with the ban hammer?

There's only one person in CR I'd consider a good enough friend to meet personally. Other than that, I'm too lazy and apathetic.
