Would you meet anyone from this site?

Possibly - I've never met anyone in "real life" that I've spoken with online. Would be a bit apprehensive about it I suppose. The problem with speaking to someone online is that all the other senses you use when you form an impression of someone are missing. All you have to go on is what they tell you so I would be cautious but wouldn't rule it out.

I probably wouldn't want to meet everyone offline that I meet online. I don't fear the unknown, it's just that people really aren't the same offline. When you're online you are more inclined to say things that will appease the person you are talking to.Well, generally, on the other hand, sometimes you will say things to someone that you would never say in person. But a majority of the time I have found that because people online, because they have time to think about what they are going to say, often will say whatever they think their reader will want to hear. Or even worse, will hide their true feelings in order to manipulate a conversation or agreement in their favor.
