This sounds a little fishy to me.

First, I don't know many girls her age who only have a "few" pictures of themselves of facebook. It's more like thirty. Secondly why have they only spoken on the phone a few times if they're "engaged"? Third, that is a long drive. What mentally sound 25 year old man would drive three days for an 18 year old girl? She's young. She hasn't experienced her 20s. Let the girl live a little before you tie her down. In the mean time, he could find someone closer around his own age.

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?


Depends on if I enjoy their personality. If I fancy the person, yes. It wouldn't matter if they haven't gotten on webcam with me, because I don't really care how a person looks.

Maybe your brother learned a lot about her. Maybe he enjoys talking to her.

Maybe you should stop being so judgmental. How is it a bad thing that she's been in many foster homes?

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.

Yeah I would meet anyone, no problems. #YOLO

Dang, seeing that gif really reminds me of how awesome and funny Napoleon Dynamite was.

On topic: HECK NO. Just the thought that people online can be WHOEVER they want to be with no consequences is scary enough in itself. If I wanted to, I could change my sex to 'female', say I'm from Britain, and change my age to 14 without anyone knowing that I was lying. if I was ever to do anything close to this I would need hours upon hours of skype 'dates'.

Who knows, a really cute girl could be a biig rapist who's just waiting for a guy like me to meet up with her behind a store at midnight.

Oh god no. This just screams bad idea from the get go. 18?! Wayyyyyy to young. She cant even drink, and that means off limits in my book.

Drive 3 days to see some chick you have only known 2 months? Screw that. Whats wrong with your brother? Hes 25, he should be either enjoying himself or find a girl his age that doesnt live on the other side of the damn country.

I agree, slap him with a fish. If he doesnt get it, use a bigger fish.

Please do this. Although wary, I was okay with most of it until the engaged and moving in part.

Also I would say be cautious because most of the time 18 year old girls aren't really 18. A friend of mine met this girl on the internet and after meeting IRL, she ended up being 16.

... This has actually happened to him a couple times in where the girls end up being younger than they said they were.

He is 25, meaning grown enough to make his own decisions, even if they may be wrong. He has to learn from his own mistakes. And if meeting her IRL is a mistake, he'll learn from it. You may not like or even have to agree with his decisions, all you and your family can do is be there for him.

But to answer your ?, I have never done so. And not sure if I would.
