Ugh, no! Personally I think it's a waste of time just typing in words you'll never really say to their face (unless you plan on meeting). What if the bf says he's 20 but is actually 40? You never know on the internet.
The internet is such a risky place now a days. I say, stick to the people you meet in person not through the net. You just never know what you are going to get on here, Regular dating can already be scary as it is. Keep it safe and simple.
me and my actually became bf and gf like that. it was an online game, and we were in out group of like around 70 people. and everyone always said we should date in game, but we were like no, gross. and then 1 day we did. by miistake. first we talked about guages, because i had them at the time, then he was like gross, and im like baby, but he took it like relationahip baby, not like cry baby which was my intension. and talk got sexy, then we were in game couple, and a couple days later, i was like we gotta stop, i go in diff group for a little bit, because my feelings were real and i couldnt stand the fake, and then we talked about our feelings, and he was like, will you (my name) take me (his name) as your bf? and i was like i do. and then we started dating ::). best relationship in my life, and sp far, we are at 7 months together, and in 2 weeks going to meet again :)
