  • I've met a couple of people. It went well. I think you've really got to trust the other person to be able to do it, though.
  • I've never met sum 1 ivde talked to onine because at the end of the day you will neer realy know who they are unless you meet them. ad even then things might turn out for the worst
  • Yes, I have. I still keep in touch with a few of them. It worked out well, actually. No crazy stalkers, at least to my knowledge.
  • Yes, I was invited to accept an award at a recognition banquet for an online Question and Answer site I participate in, and there were 50 other users there. We were all brought in at the expense of the company that runs the site, including two nights at a motel. Many of us remain in contact through our blogs and private correspondence a year later. We also formed a group, but it only lasted three or four months.
  • Yes, I've met a few. It went real well. Two ladies I met online traveled all across the country from Ohio to Washington and California visiting a group of us along the way. It was great!
  • I have met one person from another message board who has turned in to a great friend. We get together two or three times a month. I have a couple other friends I have met in person who are very nice but live far enough away I don't get to see them often. So far I have met no weirdo's or psycho's, at least not in person. Everyone has been even nicer in person than I actually expected.
  • I met someone once but we never talked again.
  • I've met two people...one was good...one not so good. Hope to meet some people off AB in the future.
  • Not me. I think what happens online stays online.
  • I've met two people in real-life that I first met online. The first meeting when ok, but he and I are no longer in touch. I recently met Jodie44 (in California) and we had a great time. I'm going back in January for a longer visit.
  • yeah, lots of people have with varying results, i'm sure.
  • I have. More than once. It worked out fine. They were all who they said they were. Then again, we had mutual friends so I already knew that.
  • Yes, I've met two different guys....one I dropped after a little while because he started coming on too strong...the other one i ended up moving all the way across the country to be closer to :), best choice i've made yet...because I admit it, I'm in love with him.
  • I've met a guy. The first encounter was not so great!!I was exaggerately shy,I was silent,I didn't know what to say. My face was turning red when he gave me some compliments!! I remember that I've almost fallen on the ground!!it was a shame!!!! I didn't feel so comfortable!!
  • Many times. All the interactions were fantastic; really nice people. Of course, I made sure that I was talking with the real deal (not an imposter). The only time it didn't go well was when I had bronchitis and a sinus infection; she was rather turned off, and after the date ran out of my car and did not even say "goodbye". Dang coughing! :)
  • Well this probably doesn't count because I actually knew her from real life before computers became popular but I recently spent 5 days with a young lady that I've mostly kept in touch with over the last several years by phone and email/im's since I live in a Northeastern State and she lives in Utah.
  • I met one. 4.5 years later, we're still together.
  • Yes, it worked out well. You just have to be carefull.
  • I have met people several times. Married two and ended up being divorced by one.
  • Yeah, a few times. Most of the times it hasn't been so great, but once I met a lovel guy, and now he's one of my closest friends :)
  • yea, haha, me andd a buddy have been playing on xbox live with about 5 people for 2 years and we got them a hotel in my town and we all meet up for the batman premier movie. it was fun. like we new each other just hadnt seen each other in a long time.
  • I met quite a few. Some worked out great, still friends and chat one to another; 1 worked out very excellent as we are expecting our 1st child now :)But yes, a couple were weird people and glad I lost contact with them!
  • I have met 5 or 6. I married two and divorced one. So, 20% success rate is not very good. That is excluding the 100 that I chatted with and never met. MMM... Seems like a poor way to find a wife!
  • Yes...how'd it work out? We got married...7 years and strong.
  • yes. and after 6 and a half years of marraige she ran away 2290 miles with a man she met on xbox live
  • I have been dating a woman I met online for two years and have to say I never expected an online connection to turn into such a great relationship. We are now living together and get along really well. I was in a bad marrage for over twenty years and never felt the amount of love I feel now. It worked for me.
  • It worked okay still talking 2 years later..:)
  • i have met several some as friends and some as dates. i think where you meet has nothing to do with. all kinds of ppl are online and offline. we just have to watch for red flags whether we are meeting from online or in a grocery store.
  • I married him!!!!
  • Yes I have had friends who I have known for over ten years on line . My husband and I have been on holiday with them and my sister and I have spent Thanks giving with others and their families.
  • I met one guy in person who I met online years ago when I started sophomore year in college. We ended up dating for a little under a year, and it changed my life. We are still best friends, I have met so many of my greatest friends through him, and more from the people I met through them. HOWEVER! Be very, very careful! I think there is a lot missing in terms of knowing someone unless you know them in person. For instance, that person I talked to online was much different than online. Actually, I liked him in person better. Again though, be very very careful. There are a lot of very scary people out there, who are very good actors/actresses. I would never do that again - I feel that I was lucky in many ways really. Just be careful. Use your common sense, and if you can, have a back up plan in terms of safety and such. You really never know. Just look out for yourself. If you can, bring someone with you, perhaps you can arrange a double date? Make sure you meet up in an extremely public place, and do that several times before getting together alone. Its all about intuition and common sense. Be careful. Good luck!
  • Bad. It's easy for people to pretend to be who they are not online..especially long distance...just be careful. It can work out wonderfully though...one of my good friends is married to someone she met online!! :)
  • i have met more than id like to admit. but if you are single and dating you got to be open to new ways of meeting people. so far i have yet to meet "the one" but have made two really good friends and have a bunch of crazy stories to share : ) obvious tip - never give too much personal details ie, specifically where you live or work, meet up in a public place and keep it light, coffee or drinks so you are not committed to a whole sit down meal with the person in case it just doesnt feel right. altho if you talk over the phone first you usually can get a sense of how itll be.
  • I have yet to meet a potential sex partner, but I have met three different people in person after corresponding online for years. They are all totally cool people but it's hard to hang with them much because they live so far away.
  • Im meeting a girl in April of next year, and im spending like $700 to see her, so i hope that works out ha ha. I've heard online relationships actually work out better with people who are serious about them and have the money to see the other person.
