My sister had a 3 year relationship with a guy online. She thought he was perfect. So much so that she married him. About a mnth later she left cause he was addicted to heroine and beat her. There's alot you don't know about the person on the other end of the messages. It's very dangerous because they can tell u what ever u want to hear weather it's true or not.
Just be very cautious. If you want to meet, bring a friend. If he asks for money because he needs it to fly to America because he is in another country, forget about him. There are many cases of people scamming others by "falling in love" over the internet, and needing the money to fly to America..
Most people would say why risk it? Play it safe! You've heard horror stories about terrible things that have happened to people attempting online relationships and so the easy and safe thing to do is to simply avoid them at all cost. This is how superstitions start. Someone says a black cat crosses your path gives you bad luck, and you think well that isn't too difficult to avoid--low cost, huge potential reward (no bad luck)--and it sticks, even with no good reasoning. There are online sickos, but the vast majority of people online are safe, and just like you. Some decent people find true love on the Internet, why couldn't you?
you should take time to really get to know this guy. Have you video chatted with him to make sure he isn't lying about his age? If not, you should, because if you don't, you never know if he's 40 to 50 or if he really is who he says he is. just be careful. there's a lot of weirdos running around out there. yo can't always be too safe.
Well first, I'm not going to say ALL online dating is bad- it really depends on the website and the actual person you find while dating online. Though, in some cases- the ones you find online can be fake. There are plenty of cyber stalkers.
