Since you're on this site, it's likely you've entertained the idea of having a long distance relationship with someone you "meet" here. I say "meet" because until you've actually spent time face to face with someone you chat/exchange emails/text/talk on the phone with, you haven't really met them. Skype can come close and will at least eliminate the worst of the fakes online but with a long distance relationship, you're still faced with the biggest quandry: how well do you really know this person? Because even on Skype, you're viewing them at presumably their best. But what are they like when they wake up in the morning? What are they like in bad traffic? How do they deal with waiters? There's a lot you can't learn until you've spent a significant amount of time with this person in real life.

So my first rule of online dating is this: Never fall in love online. It's OK to get interested but don't get excited until you can both spend a lot of quality time face to face. I know of a woman who thought she was head over heels in love with a man who lived 10 hours away (by car) from her. After months they finally met face to face halfway and discovered they had absolutely no chemistry in person. They remained good friends and it was certainly worth meeting and knowing if there was something between them but was it worth investing her heart and soul into it just to have her heart broken? Some of you may say yes but after it happens to you a few times, it won't sound like such a romantic notion.

I'm glad this helps! First meetings could be another topic altogether. I always advise that a first meeting be arranged under the terms dictated by the woman at a public place in order to ensure she feels safe. I'm sure someone else has written much more about this.

Thank you for your advice.  It is a problem isn't it?  I also think a man should come to you first, just old fashioned I guess but maybe even for the safety of it.  You just never know.  The person could not be who you think they are or say they are and sometimes I guess you will just have to listen to your instincts.  I haven't met anyone yet so....
