Would you go meet someone, if you only talk online for a few months, maybe talk a bit on the phone? You only have a few photos of the person, never once skype or webcam, don't really know much about the person, only what you talk about, would you be that crazy enough to go?


My brother is, he been talking to this girl on Facebook for only a few month, he has just a few photos of her, never met in person before, talk a few times on the phone, only knows a little about her, some of the stuff he did tell me about her sounds crazy, she been in 50 foster homes, and she only 18. my brother is 25, everyone try to talk to him, but he still going to meet her, oh btw she lives far, a 3 Days drive from where we live.

He also lost it in his mind, b/c he want her to move back in with him, and he says they are already engaged He already calling her is wife to be, and he never once met her in person.


What you think? Have any of you done something that crazy before? Do you know anyone that done something like this before? What's your story?

I have never hooked up with anyone over the internet, nor do I know anyone.

However, I would never do that. First, because the pictures of the "girl" may not be of her. Second, she might be lying about her age. Third, this girl may not actually be a girl.

Your brother really should see this person before something really bad happens. If I ever tried to get with a guy, I would need to see what he looks like before I commit myself in a relationship. It would suck if he ended up marrying an old woman or worse, a guy.

I didn't have an issue with any of it until the part about getting engaged.

I'm of the opinion you don't get engaged until the two of you have at least lived together for a while. And I know someone is going to take offense to this but I don't think an 18 year old is far enough into their life at that point to get engaged and deal with all the rigors and responsibilities being in that kind of relationship entails.

I agree 100% with everyone else here, nothing good will come from this. When he is sleeping play subliminal messages to him to convince him otherwise.

This. Most people aren't ready for that kind of thing at that age in regular healthy relationships. To say they are ready for such a thing in this situation is just...well...stupid.

Your brother has issues that need to be addressed if he is that serious over someone who he has no real connection with. I am not saying he can't be in a relationship with someone online and have it become an offline thing though. I just believe that he should at the very least talk to her on the phone or skype or webcam. He needs to make sure that who he is talking to is who they claim to be as much as possible before taking things further.

I was never in a relationship with the person but I have met someone IRL who I only talked to online. I never even talked to her through audio or webcam and had only seen a picture or two of her. The only reason it happened as well is because I didn't have to go to her since she was going to be in the area for a family thing and because we were just simply going to go out to lunch. That is the only experience I have had when it comes to meeting people IRL from online.

Before he goes, make sure you find out just about all of the details of his trip, and let at least most of your family in the know, as well. Last year, I watched a Dateline episode that talked about a case involving a killer who lured unsuspecting guys through online dating.

Where is his head at? Just because someone is female does not mean they aren't capable of psychotic behavior and murder.If you can't talk him out of going then take it upon yourself to do a background check on her and somehow keep track of him by GPS or something. This sounds like a plot to a bad obsession horror flick.

I've had an online friend for 6 years now. If I had the disposable income I'd go all the way up to Ohio to visit but, that's not happening any time soon. I was understanding until the engaged thing. Two lonely people shouldn't meet with nobody there. Some people have hard times in life y'know?

I did meet someone (a guy) online once. We had talked for ages, texted and called, and did webcam. So we finally decided to meet in a PUBLIC place.

We're now best friends three years later (:

Never going on a three day drive for that.

That's just, far too long. Especially if I've never seen her on a webcam or something at least. And it's only been a couple months.
