Who can tell me if it is dangerous to have an online relationship?

Just wanting to know because i'm in love with this guy....

Report as

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.

This is such an outrageous and outlandish example. Stop scaring everybody. Let the pros at your local news station do that!
Report as
It's not a scary story it's true. Not saying it will happen to everyone. Just saying be careful.
Report as
The pros at your local tv station? Ya cuz the media never makes any outlandish claims.
Report as
I don't think this is outrageous at all. It's something that can happen and obviously did happen. it's better to know then to go into something ignorant. The message is to be careful and be knowledgable.
Report as
the news sometimes plays on the truth a little to scare people more than they need to be
Report as
Sorry that happened to your sister momof02. It's good to share things like this because these are things you don't hear on the news. It's not to scare ppl it's to bring awareness. Don't be bothered with ppl who think it's to much to tell someone. In any situation be careful and protect yourself.

meet him in person also but be public about it so u are not harmed in the process
Report as
uh.....Hellson? I think some of the subtlety escaped you.

I would say that not only is it dangerous but the guy might be cheating on you

Nonsense. No reason to drown in fear over something that happens in such a small, insignificant percentage of cases. You take a greater risk starting your car!
Report as
who said I was fearful I just said that it wasnt safe
Report as
Well, it does make sense. Thank you, Classy22!

As a general rule it's never a good idea. It's not real until you really know the guy in person

Online relationships are for people who can't find love in person.

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..

Wellllllll, noooooooowwwwww! You all would be accusing me of being a cradle robber if I took up with a 50-yr.-old feller! :0 "Course I'm a sucker for a good doggy any time. I love dogs. All jokes aside, it's a very serious situation. The only chance of not having a catastrophe is to (1) for goodness sake M E E T the person, (2) Meet the person in a VERY PUBLIC place, hopefully with friends all around you. (3) Let those friends know what is going on (4) Don't leave alone with this unknown new person the first (maybe even the second time out.)........and STILL you're taking a chance! Please be careful.

No it's not a good answer. It's fear mongering.

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.

Yes, and people you actually meet face to face can also be fake. Complete fabrications!
