    I'm meeting up with someone I've sorta met on the internet, although she's a friend of a friend of a friend sort of thing, my e-mail address got passed around, she ontacted me, we were e-mailing for a month or so, then she gave me her mobile number onmsn ast week. I think I've gone through my text message allowance for the month in a matter of days !!

    Anyway Thursday she asked to phone me, we had a 3 hour conversation on the phone, and another one last night, meeting her after work on Wednesday, she really does seem like a nice girl, can't wait. Oh and she's very easy on the eye :)

    Here's hoping all works out.

    Well he replied to a post saying that nightclubs were the only place outside of pubs and houseparties...I dont think he would say that outside of nightclubs, nightclubs are a good place to meet people :o

    I think any where you go with your mates you can work to your advantage,

    But to the OP no I dont think online is a bad place to meet other halfs, most people have a good judge of character, even if it is from a few hundered miles away!

    Met my b/f online in an irc chat room for a game we both played. Been together about 1.5 years now. I was using the room as a way to talk direct to the game developers and got talking to my now b/f. We talked for about 3 months, then agreed to meet up as friends. A week later we were a couple and I still love him to bits. :)
    I agree that people should be very careful when meeting someone from online, eg. meet somewhere public that you know well. Meeting as friends first is also a good idea, just so there are no preconceptions.

    i met my last two boyfriends online but it wasnt on purpose. i only got chatting to them as friends and didnt think anything of it.

    i wouldnt do it again. too many weirdos on the internet and they both really hurt me.

    there are Advantages aswell as disadvantages to it imo, an advantage is you get to know the person before you judge on looks, and while looks do matter, theyre no reason to write someone out completely. Disadvantages is often there is long ditances involed and you have to have a large deal of trust in the other person.
    I don't see a problem with it at all, if theyre both happy, who is to say whether its sad or what? Under the right circumstances i would give it a go.
