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.


"Hey dad how did you meet mum?"

I'm not even going to try and make a joke about that...

I would meet somebody online, but I would have to video chat them first and meet in busy location.

I can think of about 10-20 people I've known for years whom I've met online who I'd gladly meet up with someday, if given the opportunity. Mind you those are people I've known for years, not people I only just met.

If you decide to meet someone you just met for dating purposes, on the other hand, whom you only just met online .. be at least prepared for disappointment.

Worst-case scenario .. they might kidnap you and torture your restrained naked body to death.

I would, and have, meet someone I met on the internet in real life. As long as you're smart about it, it's not any more risky than meeting someone new offline and getting to know them. Meeting in a public place, taking a friend, letting someone know where you'll be and when you should be back, etc. If the person you're meeting has a problem with any of this, that's probably a sign you shouldn't be meeting them.

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 met my boyfriend through an online dating site after talking to him for about 6 months before actually meeting up. One of my buddies on CR who happens to be my neighbor, lives a couple of blocks down the road. You just need to be cautious and trust your instincts if you feel something isn't right and not all of them turn out to be weirdos.

Probably. I think the bigger question is whether they'd like to meet me.

Kinda funny how the guys on this site are more afraid of meeting people than the girls. Lol.. where do they do that at?
But personally I'd be more reluctant to meet a dude than a girl.. then again.. I Don't talk to guys on that level so the situation rarely arises.

I have many times for both persona new friends and business relations, the internet is not always a bad thing. Now the next question is, would you meet someone over a phone app?

its a really difficult question, its like a risk taking decision it could go great or it can just go awful, there are plenty of people out there that lie and say things just so u meet up with them and they rob you or rape/murder you. But not only that even if that person doesn't have any intention of causing harm to you in any way, it can still go bad, lets face it everyone acts different irl than online in someway. so like I said its just a risk taking decision you can do it or not, up to you. If you really wanna meet someone online but you are scared, bring a friend or have a friend stay close by (like a ninja lol) and if he does anything the friend can run out and help, but these are only suggestions that you can do as a precaution.
