Is it safe to meet someone I've been talking to online in person? He seems like the real deal. I just want to be safe. Any tips?

Before meeting this person "for the first time", make sure that you inform a close friend or your family member about the meeting. Give them a brief idea of how the meeting is scheduled; where you will be meeting and when you expect to return. You should consider meeting in public and in day time; either in a restaurant, or some place where you are visible. Protect your privacy all the time until you get to know your "internet friend" very well; never allow your friend pick you or drop you. If you do not feel comfortable around your friend, you can excuse yourself; pretend it is a phone or something like that.

Do not meet that person at night or in a dark alley. You probably shouldn't meet he or she anyways, but if you really badly want to make sure lots of people are around. If even they seem nice, they can not be trusted yet.

I say don't do it to many risks. But I you don't listen and do go. Make sure it is daytime and bring someone with you. Also make sure it is a public place with lots of people around.

Don't do it! It is not safe. It definitely should be a situation to avoid, you don't need to put yourself in a bad situation. If you are still living at home tell your parents about this too.

I see a lot of people saying do not do it!
Just remember to be smart if you do decide to meet this person!
A lot of people don't always tell you the whole truth. I thought I was meeting a very nice medium size woman! When I went to meet her she was about three hundred pounds! Right away she was telling me she was d falling fore! I have a very small care and when she managed to get in my car I thought my shocks were going to bust on that side! No kidding!
She was sweating and I had my AC on full blast. That first date to me was a nightmare! I had to tell her I just wasn't feeling it! She invited me into her house big mistake on my part!
I had to make a big exit she grabbed me and I thought she was gonna Rape me I pulled away and left fast!
So be very careful!
