Yes but with all the perverts out there, its risky and you can't tell if they are serious about you so you should be very careful. I met this guy online and we were in a relationship and he turned out to be a real nut case, he played with my mind so I ended it. Keep your head on and don't let anyone influence you into anything you don't want to do.
You shouldnt ever have a long distance relationship especialy when you dont know them. The person you met could possibly be a murdere looking for another kill to his or her name, so watch out, and dont go meet him or her.
